Many of us have significant issues with anxiety on a day to day basis, with a wide spectrum of impact on quality of life. There are many treatments available for anxiety, with several prescription drugs and supplements that can have anxiolytic, or anti-anxiety effects. However, many of the prescription drugs have nasty side effects, addiction potential, and several downsides. And many of the supplements don’t do a very good job of treating anxiety. So what about kava, the millennia-old entheogen from the Pacific Islands? Does Kava treat anxiety, and if so, what is the best kava for anxiety?
The answer is yes, Kava can be an outstanding anxiolytic, and has far fewer downsides than most prescription drugs, especially when used responsibly. However, there are many bad kavas on the market, irresponsibly produced by unscrupulous vendors, likely made using poor-quality kava with little oversight. These should be avoided whenever possible.
This article looks at the best Kavas for anxiety treatment and will look at several excellent choices from reputable vendors.
