Kava for Better Sleep


Kava kava is a plant that comes from the South Pacific. It's used as a natural sedative which also makes it an excellent sleep-aid. 

If you have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep, and want to avoid using prescription medications, then you'll want to learn more about this tropical herb. 

For hundreds and hundreds of years, kava kava has been taken by natives of the South Pacific islands to help them sleep. And unlike other natural remedies used as sleeping aids, kava kava has been proven to have no ill side effects.

It has both calming and naturally sedative properties, and reduces stress and anxiety, especially mental worry that commonly causes sleep issues. Learn more about how to stop an anxiety attack with kava. 

As more and more studies on kava emerge, we're seeing that the highest quality kava does no damage to the liver (as was speculated years and years ago) and also has analgesic properties, as well as muscle relaxant ones. This means it also helps reduce aches and pains associated with poor sleep. 

Another study suggests that kava might also affect the brainwaves in such a way that promotes restorative sleep. As more kava kava research comes to the fore, I'm sure we'll come to the conclusion that kava is one of the most effective natural sleep aids on the planet. And Westerners will happily learn from South Pacific Islanders that kava kava can be taken in good conscience and with no harmful side effects to the physical or mental body.
