Summary
The natives of the Pacific islands have used kava for hundreds if not thousands of years and has a safe traditional & historical use. It can be highly sedative and has been known to numb certain body parts of the body. Kava functions as primarily as a GABA receptor agonist, without the side effects caused by common pharmaceuticals that work with these receptors. Some studies have shown that kava root can actually upregulate the GABA receptors, producing what some call a 'reverse-tolerance'. This means that when consumed within reason, kava has a long lasting calming effect on those who consume it.


Precautions
Kava is a potent sedative herb, caution is advised when driving or operating heavy machinery. Do not mix with alcohol and/or other sedatives as there will be an additive effect. Kava should be avoided by those with sensitive livers and should not be mixed with liver heavy substances such as alcohol. Speak to your doctor before use.
