Legendary in the South Pacific, popular in Hawaiian juice bars, and now an enduring mainland fad, with an expanding body of research to back up its claims...
No South Pacific tribal council gathering would be attempted without the mandatory sipping of Kava. It seems to lubricate the wheels of communication and progress.
At modest levels, it is simply a non-narcotic, no-caffeine, gentle, feel-good herb. Massive amounts of the extract are required to achieve a sort of happy intoxication. The 59mg of Kava in a serving of Iridesca is small by comparison, yet sufficient to be a biodynamic, energetics-balancing, and calming factor in the formula.
More recent research is looking at Kava for enhancing female libido, and for its antiviral properties.
