Kavalactone Capsules

There are many forms of kava these days, and one might find oneself unsure as to which one they would like best. Kavalactone capsules are among the easiest and most cost-effective ways to take kava, especially for newcomers who feel unsure about how to prepare kava the traditional way. In our humble expert opinions, we do feel that it is up to you to decide, but we have also found that different forms of kava work differently.

The main advantage kavalactone capsules have over other forms of kava is that they are much more convenient to take and don't require the user to develop a taste for kava, which can be bitter. In traditional methods that use shredded or powdered kava root, one has to steep the root material in water for at least 45 minutes to an hour before the brew can be consumed--South Pacific kava-brewing ceremonies can take several hours to complete! While a traditional cold kava brew offers the most authentic kava experience, you may just not have the time to prepare it this way.

Also, if you cannot get accustomed to the bold flavor of kava, kavalactone capsules would be the way to go. In our opinion, they do not offer the full ceremonial benefits of a freshly-made shell of kava, nor do they contain the full spectrum of constituents found in the root, but they are more convenient to take. Instant Kava Mixes, while quick and easy to make at home, still require that you have access to water, a glass, and spoon at minimum, making them tricky to rely on for travel or when you're on the go.

Kavalactone capsules are made from a concentrated extract of kava root with a standardized percentage of kavalactones, resinous compounds believed to be responsible for the effects of kava. Scientists have identified at least 14 kavalactones within the kava root. The numbing of the mouth that occurs when drinking a kava beverage is thought to be caused by the presence of kavalactones, and is often taken as a sign that the kava is of high quality. However, kavalactone capsules will not cause this numbing effect because the kavalactones in the capsule or gelcap do not come in contact with the mucus membranes of the mouth.

Kavalactone capsules also offer an easy way to store as well as travel with your kava. They just need to be kept out of places like the dashboard of your car because the delicate kavalactones do not withstand heat above one hundred and forty degrees Fahrenheit.

For kava that is still effective yet easy to take, kavalactone capsules are ideal. Kava is believed to support the body's natural ability to cope with stress* and can be taken about 1 to 1.5 hours before any potentially stressful situation, such as a plane trip, exam, date, or public speech. Other users may find that it simply helps create a peaceful ending to their day*. Kavalactone capsules are an easy, effective way to reap the benefits of kava wherever you happen to be!
