Traditional preparation of Kava Kava

Over the thousands of years that Kava has been cultivated in the Pacific Islands, various traditions have developed for preparing and using the roots of methistine pepper. Depending on the region, mortars and pestles or limestone and coral quern-stones would be used to finely grind the dried roots, with the ground Kava then undergoing lengthy and elaborate ceremonies, including manual soaking and draining of the aqueous extract. Kavaha also draws on this tradition.

Kavalactones. The mystery of nature under screening.

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.
