Kava Kava is an herb which has traditionally been brewed into tea to support healthy mood, stress, and anxiety levels. While there is some evidence that Kava Kava may promote improvements in some aspects of cognition especially on tasks that cause anxiety, more research is needed to say for sure that this is a commonly experienced benefit.
Double Wood’s Kava Kava Root Extract supplement provides all the classic benefits of Kava Tea in convenient capsules. Our extract is standardized to between 3-5% kavalactones providing an average of 40 mg of kavalactones in each 1000 mg serving.
We don’t recommend exceeding 3 capsules per day as side effects are far more likely at higher doses, and many people also find the acute effects uncomfortable at high doses.
We strongly recommend starting with a 1 capsule dosage (500 mg) per day for the first few days, especially if you haven’t used Kava before. This will allow to experience how your body reacts to Kava before moving up to the full recommended dosage of 2 capsules per day and you may find that 1 capsule per day is plenty for you.
If you don’t experience side effects from the 1 capsule dosage and want stronger effects, you may then move up to a 2 capsule daily dosage. (1000 mg)
Kava Kava does have more side effects than most supplements we sell, so caution should be advised when taking Kava especially at high doses or if you’re on other prescription medication. Kava does have numerous interactions with prescription drugs and should not be combined with them unless cleared to do so by your doctor.
Side effects of Kava include dizziness, drowsiness, headaches, elevated liver enzymes, motor reflex impairment (similar to that caused by alcohol), and enlarged pupils.
Like alcohol, Kava is processed by the liver and chronic use at high doses has been associated with liver damage in some studies, although most patients in these studies who experienced liver damage from kava were also taking other prescription drugs and alcohol. Kava should never be combined with alcohol or other prescription drugs which are metabolized by the liver. (Just like alcohol and Tylenol should not be combined.)
Some people notice acute effects of Kava similar to that of alcohol, especially at high doses. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery after using Kava.
