This is a great product! Very relaxing and quick-acting, and it even tastes good, unlike many herbal extracts. Can be used during the day for stress relief, or in the evening for winding down the day. There is a warning about not using Kava longer than 4 weeks or so. So, take a break and try Skullcap or Valerian, then come back to Kava later if you like it.
Great formula! It's kinda sticky, but the taste isn't horrid, so I can put it directly under my tounge when needed. It does numb my tongue and throat, but I don't mind. I'm slowly tapering off Valium and when fighting benzo withdrawal anxiety, I make a cup of what I call my "Miracle Tea." I brew a mug of fresh, hot green tea and add two droppersful of this stuff, two droppersful of Now Foods Valerian Root Extract and dump in the powder from one 200 mgs capsule of Now Foods L-Theanine. (You may want to check with your doctor first before trying such a potent combo.) I'm not promising it will taste great, but it is the only thing that will completely nip my benzo anxiety in the bud for a few hours of calm during the worst anxiety time of my day.

I have done extensive testing of this product, and I certainly can't feel the effects from this Kava Extract. I wondered that it might be due to that this is a very cheap alternative, that is very poor in quality - and also contains a very low amount of actual plant matter extract, that has effect. It doesn't even say how much of the plant matter is in it (per dropperful). Shipping was top notch!
Very subtle effect.

I have never tried real kava, but from what I understand it pretty powerful stuff. This kinda maybe, I don't know- works? Used it 10 times or more and noticed a very subtle relaxation. Wouldn't buy it again

I plan to order more. Only problem I've had is that it had leaked slightly in the bag when it had arrived, also, the bottle seems to get sticky on the outside, it is probably due to the mixture with glycerine.
Exiting new thing!

Haven´t used it for long, but it helped to relax without getting foggy or "drugged" in any way. My friend it made very happy and my boyfriend out of his worrying cycle.
KAVA FOR CALM
Posted by Reviewer1434258 on Feb 25, 2014
I have used KAVA for my mother, who sometimes has fast pulse rate. KAVA has been has been very good for dropping the pulse to safe levels. I have found that it is a great calmative for anxiety, and can lower my BP when it is too high as well. For those who do not like the taste of KAVA extract, but who do like the effect the herb has, put an eyedropper full into a 000 gelatine capsule. Then quickly seal the capsule and swallow it. I find KAVA to be a safe and reliable herb with mellowing effect on the mind and body.
