You do not need to travel far to find harmony with nature. But the first step is necessary. If you are new to Kavaha, we have prepared some tips for you.
For starters, let us do the opposite. It is recommended to drink two portions of the extract at once when you first try Kava. The first dose rarely allows you to fully enjoy its unique effects. The second should put us in a state of deep relaxation. This is the characteristic of Kava. When our body is attuned to the action of the kavalactones it contains, it will react faster and more effectively to smaller and smaller portions.
Where do the unique properties of Kavaha come from? Can nature help us find harmony and inner balance? The answer lies primarily in the roots of Kava and the action of its active ingredients, kavalactones. And to answer it even more precisely: in their cooperation. It is the specific composition of kavalactones – the natural chemotype – that determines the way they affect our body.
Each type of Kava is characterised by a different composition and concentration of active ingredients, so the better we know their natural properties, the more accurately we can choose Kava based on our needs and preferences.
Kava Kava, ‘awa, ‘ava, yagona, sakau, methystine pepper (Piper methysticum) are just a few names by which this unique plant is known. For over 3000 years, the people of the Pacific Ocean islands have been using its properties in healing, rituals and social gatherings. The culture of drinking Kava has already left its native islands: Vanuatu, Tonga, Micronesia, Fiji, Samoa, French Polynesia, Hawaii and is conquering the whole world.
Kava belongs to the pepper family. The adult plant is a shrub reaching up to 4.5 m in height, with large, heart-shaped leaves. Although it develops male and female flowers, seed setting is very rare. Kava is most often bred in a vegetative way, which means that the offspring are genetically identical to the parent organism. This allows our growers to maintain a continuous quality of crops, thanks to which the Kavaha brand can be proud of the highest quality of its products.
