Can't live without it...
Posted by alloriginal on May 22, 2013
I wouldn't want to be without kava extract! When feeling agitated or stressed, it has a definite calming effect. It is especially useful, for me, before bed. It quiets my mind and allows a good, restful sleep. It's sort of like a beer or two, without the alcohol. I believe that nutritional supplements saved my life. I've tried a lot of products, and I know what works and what doesn't. My reviews are honest, straighforward, and based on my experience. Read my other reviews to quickly learn from my three decades of research and experimentation.

Kava provides excellent anxiety and stress relief with minimal drowsiness or dulling of the thought process. This formula contains eleuthero (formerly called Siberian Ginseng, although it's actually not in the same genus as ginseng), which I find energizing without jitters. I've found the Now extract to be the most consistently potent of the Kava supplements I've used.
The Anxiety - Sleep Aid
Posted by Reviewer1513235 on May 27, 2006
I've been using Kava Kava for mild anxiety and as a sleep aid on occasion for nearly 15 years, it has been of great benefit for me as long as I follow the guidlines given, my wife also uses it on occasion she is not as fond of it as she is more sensative to its potency and feels a groggy awakening in the morning, But I for one have not felt this effect, as a fact I've been nothing but refreshed upon natural awakening in the morning and ready to start a new day...

This is a very effective quality product.I personally use Kava during occasional stressful periods,and have found it to decrease my anxiety level without sleepiness.I would give it a "10" on a 1-10 scale!

Return of old friend
Posted by Reviewer3107698 on Jan 25, 2008
Kava Kava is the only product I have found down through the years that assists me in getting to sleep. A few years ago when the product was banned, it was a great loss. Now that it's back, I feel an old friend has been allowed toreturn.
This is it!

I've used Kava Kava for years when experiencing extremely stressful times. During my mother's last months when she was so sick of being sick and let me know about it, I would take 950mg about a half hour before having to deal with her each evening and this made it possible for me to endure with ease. Your skin will develop a very distinct shade of orange after six months of use but when you stop it changes back to normal within weeks. I ordered this for my darling son who has a very stressful job and is in the process of quitting smoking and he says it is keeping him calm and not wishing for a smoke. This is marvelous and hasn't harmed me in any way. Don't be afraid...try it--it could save your sanity.

It makes you fall asleep easier and deeper. Non-drowsy, however if taken in the day (for issues like anxiety) it might make you feel tired/sleepy.
