Good quality product a bit harsh on the liver.

I believe that Eclectic Institute makes very good products. This one is no exception but Kava Kava extracts may pose a risk of hepatoxicity. Use of this products should be limited to acute or intermittent use: Reference: Constituents in kava extracts potentially involved in hepatotoxicity: a review. Olsen LR, Grillo MP, Skonberg C. Chem Res Toxicol. 2011 Jul 18;24(7):992-1002. Epub 2011 May 3. Review. PMID: 21506562 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] Related citations
not much effect, but side effects.

granted, i notice a definite relaxation.. but this is not a sedative. you have to intentionally try to get to sleep, as you normally would. the side effects seem to outweigh the good effects. even after using only one capsule i would experience extreme dehydration, headaches, and a diuretic effect. not exactly what i'm looking for when i'm trying to relax.
Not for me

Kava Kava had absolutely no effect on my anxiety. It did not have any effects as a sleeping aid neither. Also tend to give me abdominal pain.
Little or no effect

I've been taking this product for 2 weeks and have seen very little effect. I was hoping this would be a viable natural fix opposed to all the drugs the docs want to push. Oh well.
