Kava Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Though stress is an inevitable part of daily life, stressed out does not have to be. We all need an outlet for stress. If we can't vent out our emotions in a healthy way, we may completely deplete ourselves by turning all that negative energy inward. There are lots of ways to do it. Here is a tip you may wish to consider to adopt to relieve your stress, enhance your vitality and energy sooner than you can imagine.

There are many natural supplements that can reduce anxiety and boost your spirits, which are all sold over the counter at health food stores and pharmacies. If the simple solutions do not work for you, you may want to try Kava, a wonderful, soothing supplement that is particularly good for people who are under a great deal of stress. If you are feeling stressed out or anxious, it is recommended that you include the following supplement in your daily plan for at least ten weeks, if not longer.

For thousands of years the herb kava has been used in the South Seas as a mood enhancer and treatment for anxiety. Today, kava is growing in popularity in the West, and kava teas and capsules are sold in health food stores and pharmacies. It contains biologically active compounds called kavalactones that have been shown to be effective against stress, anxiety, and muscle tension. Unlike tranquilizers, it will not leave you feeling groggy or drugged; instead, it promotes a feeling of tranquillity and well-being. Even better, kava is non-addictive.

The kavalactones in kava have a profoundly positive effect on the region of the brain that controls emotion. There have been more than eight hundred studies of the benefits of kava as an anti-anxiety agent in Europe, and most of them have verified that it works as well as, if not better than, many prescription anti-anxiety drugs.

Kava is also an important part of social life of South Sea residents. The kava ceremony, which involves drinking a strong drink, is reserved for honoured guests. Dignitaries who have visited the South Seas from Pope John Paul II to Hillary Clinton have participated in the kava ceremony. What a nice way to relax your guests and make them feel at home!

If you feel anxious and stressed out, it is recommended that you take 60 milligrams of it daily. Like many other herbs, it has a cumulative effect, which means that it will take about four weeks to notice an improvement in anxiety. You should feel better long before you have completed your own health routine, and if kava works well for you, you may want to continue on it for as long as you need it. If you are currently taking a prescription drug for anxiety, work with your doctor to wean yourself off it slowly and to start to drink kava instead.
