I am a male in the late 30s. My background: For the past 12 years I have suffering from upper backache resulting in poor night sleep. Past decade or so, I've have treid various traditonal massages, acupuncture, Anarex (muscle relaxant) & exercises, spend tonnes of money all with limited result. Past year or so, I started to develop shoulder/neck ache. I was informed by chiropractor that the back muscle spasm is now pulling the shoulder & neck muscle. I truly wonder how I am going to go thru life with these problems nagging at me constantly. Things got worst when took up regional job involving frequent travelling, I started to have anxiety which keeps me up almost the whole night. Firstly, I tried 5 HTP, L Tryptophan, Valarian root & Melatonin. Again, with limited success. I later turned to prescription drugs: Anti Histamine, Stillnox & Diazapam. The latter 2 are very effective but Drs keep advising me I am heading towards a downward spiral. I was really worried for my health & got depressed. I guess someone upstairs thinks that I have had enough, I came across KAVA on this website & red the consumers' feedback and decided to give it a go. This is the Silver bullet that I have been searching for !! (I only take 2 of this natural wonder an hour before going to bed & nothing else). For those of you who can relate to my history, do give it a try. I hope that it is also your silver bullet. Best wishes...Eric

There is research that suggests that anything other than the pulp of the root can possibly be harmful to the liver (there is also research that says it's all harmful, but it's being reviewed and questioned because the research was done with a product that contained root peelings and other aerial parts of the plant - the participants were also hard-core alcoholics, so that's another thing). This is a very clean, high-quality - "root-only" product from a well-reputed strain of kava. I like the fact they explicitly state that there aren't any root peelings included either. If you want "root-only", and you probably do, this is one instantiation of such a creature. Technically speaking, it's about as good as it gets for a straight powder, not a standardized extract. This is just a straight extract, which gives you better control over your dose. But this is definitely "root only", not even the root peelings are included. Some research suggests that this is the safest way to go.
Very strong, great product

This Kava is exceptionally strong. Two caps and I'm in heaven. It really is a stress reducer. Kava also seems to eliminate repetitious thinking. Most of my worrys sort of drift away after taking Kava. I've taken almost all the Kava products on the market and this appears to be the strongest.

I use this kava kava when I am having trouble sleeping or am extremely stressed. I find this brand and powder works best for me, better than liquid phyto products or teas.
the real 'chill pill'

I've been using Kava for years, off an on, and this brand is simply the best. If you want the real Kava 'experience', stay away from extracts and go for a quality whole root product like this. You just can't get any better for this price.
