What is Kava?
Kava Kava Extract is of liver maintaining activities, and it is used as material for pharmaceuticals and health foods.
Kava (scientific name Piper methysticum) is a tall shrub in the pepper family that grows in the Pacific islands. Pacific Islanders have traditionally used kava in ceremonies to bring about a state of relaxation.
Main Function and Applicaion
1. Kava extract can resist fungi, thrombopoiesis and tiredness;
2. Kava extract can lose weight and relaxing muscle;
3. Kava extract is good for antidepressant .
4. Kava extract can remove tension and stress
5. Kava extract can cure worry and losing sleep.
Multiple human studies showed that kava improved anxiety, regardless of the symptoms and type of disorder (nonspecific anxiety, tension, agitation, agoraphobia, specific phobia, or general anxiety disorder)
In a clinical trial on 129 people with generalized anxiety disorder, kava extract (400 mg) was as effective as two anti-anxiety drugs (opipramol 10 mg and buspirone 100 mg).
Kava activates GABA-A receptors, which produces a calming effect. Kava prevents a decrease in norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine levels by inhibiting monoamine oxidase and relaxes muscles by decreasing beta adrenaline receptor activity
Kava reduced stress and improved sleep quality in 24 patients suffering from stress-induced insomnia. 61 patients suffering from sleep disturbances associated with anxiety, tension, and restlessness were also effectively treated with kava extract. Kava’s potentially sedative effects are due to the blocking of sodium and calcium ion channels, increased neurotransmitter binding to GABA-A receptors, inhibition of monoamine oxidase B, and an increase of the neurotransmitters noradrenaline and dopamine.
In a clinical trial on 60 people with generalized anxiety disorder, oral kava extract (250 mg kavalactones per day) reduced both anxiety and depressive symptoms.
Its combination with Saint John’s wort improved depression in a small trial on 28 people with major depressive disorder.
Perimenopause and menopause symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, and increased anxiety and irritability.
Kava improved anxiety, depression, irritability, and insomnia in 3 clinical trials on 120 perimenopausal and menopausal women. It activated GABA-A receptors, inhibited monoamine oxidase-B, and increased dopamine levels in the brain.
A single dose of kava extract (300 mg) improved accuracy and performance in attention, visual processing, and working memory tasks in a small trial on 20 people.
In another trial on 12 people, kava extract (200 mg, 3x/day) slightly improved performance in a word recognition task.
Kava pyrones are active in parts of the brain (amygdala, caudate nucleus, and hippocampus) that deal with emotions and brain processes.
Treatment of Drug Addiction
Kava reduced the cravings for addictive drugs in drug-dependent patients in a pilot study.
The anti-craving effects of kava are due to dopamine-producing neurons in the reward system of the brain (nucleus accumbens). The kava pyrone desmethoxyyangonin may increase dopamine.
Kavalactones extracted from kava prevented brain damage caused by oxidative stress in brain disorders like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease and cell studies. Kavalactones activate the Nrf2 antioxidant response pathway and increase the concentration of antioxidant enzymes (heme oxygenase-1), which may combat oxidative stress.
Epilepsy and Seizures
Kava helped treat seizures and epilepsy. Alone and in combination with the antiepileptic drug diazepam, kava reduced motor activity, increased the seizure threshold, and enhanced the anticonvulsant effect of diazepam.
Kava binds to GABA-A receptors in the brain (hippocampus and frontal cortex) and blocks sodium and calcium ion channels in the brain.
Kava stopped the progression of bladder cancer and suppressed tumor growth. Flavokawain A activated pathways (caspase-3/9 and Bax protein) that induce tumor cell death and inhibited proteins that prevent cell death.
Flavokawain B reduced prostate tumor growth, in part by reducing androgen receptors in prostate cells, in both mice and cell studies. Flavokawain B also killed tumor cells by activating the pathways that cause cell death.
Kava decreased breast cancer cell size, prevented their spreading, and increased their death. Flavokawain A, B, and a flavokawain derivative (FLS) increased the concentration of a protein that activates cell death (Bax) and inhibited two proteins needed for cell growth (PLK1 and FOXM1). Flavokawain A also cut off nutrient supply to tumors by inhibiting blood vessel formation and decreasing the levels of the glucose transporter GLUT1.
Our recommendation for a standard dose of consumption is half a teaspoon once or twice a day.
With medicinal herbs, it is important to start slow and increase gradually. Begin with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon in food, drinks, smoothies, or tea, and then evaluate to see how the body is doing. Increase in small increments of 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon if the body is responding well until the desired response is achieved. It is recommended that these types of herbs be used at low dosages for a short period of time. For management of stress, hormone balance, or nutrition, focus on the adaptogenic and nutritive herbs.
CAUTION: US FDA advises that a potential risk of rare, but severe, liver injury may be associated with Kava. Consult a health care practitioner before use, and if taking any medications. Discontinue use if any adverse reactions occur. Not for use by persons under 18 years of age, with alcoholic beverages, or by pregnant or breastfeeding women. Excessive use, or use with products that cause drowsiness, may impair your ability to operate a vehicle or dangerous equipment.
