Natural pain and stress relief

Kava Kava has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal sedative properties. Old time preparations ground took the roots of the Kava shrub, added them to water and fermented them into a ceremonial drink kind of like our Western wine. Kava Kava works much the same for relaxing effects as alcohol and can also reduce anxiety, relieve insomnia, overcome stress and quiet pain. A 2004 study found Kava Kava to improve cognitive performance as well as elevate mood. Kava root has similar reactions to the drug class benzodiazepines by bringing potent tranquilizer effects. Kava Kava works by modulating the GABA receptors in the brain to make them more active to suppress overactive brain activity. Kava Kava also influences dopamine levels to bring both pleasure feelings and motivation. Beware though because Kava Kava can leave you feeling buzzed!
