good for insomnia
Posted by Reviewer3112194 on Aug 15, 2012
I take a couple of these with a now foods valarian root before I go to bed, works really well, I also like the now foods kava kava, I think I prefer now foods kava kava during the day but this works a treat before bed with valerian root.
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
the best I've tried

I've had 3 other brands and this is the most potent for me.Excellent for muscle tension and sleep.
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.

relaxes me so I sleep better and it's more portable than the liquid extract I used before
Does not work for me

I was hoping that it would help with sleep, I got relaxed but still woke up a lot.

Seems to be working
Posted by Reviewer2280062 on Oct 26, 2011
I purchased this to help with anxiety issues, and I have felt significantly less anxious after taking one capsule in the morning. I haven't noticed any side effects. I've been using it fairly infrequently,for only a few days at a time at most.
seems to work for anxiety
