Wakacon Kava Review: Lawena Kava

Wakacon Kava is one of the most ubiquitous brands of Kava available online, primarily due to the fact that it is sold on Amazon.com (at a good price, too!). Wakacon sells two types of Kava, the Fijian Waka [Amazon Link] and Fijian Lawena [Amazon Link]. Both of these Kavas are of the traditional variety, and made up of ground roots, which are made into a tea, and traditionally strained through a strainer bag or other straining method, and then drank.

In this article, I will do a Wakacon Kava Review, specifically of the Fijian Lawena, look closely at this type of Kava, identify its effects, consider who it is good for, and whether or not it is worth purchasing.

Herb Pharm Kava Review Root Extract

Herb Pharm Kava root extract [Amazon Link] is one of the more popular kava root extracts available on the market today. It is made from kava root (piper methysticum) sourced in Vanuatu from plants aged 4-8 years old. The kava is extracted, using organic cane alcohol, into a format that can be imbibed with a simple dropper system from a bottle.

It advertised as “calming and stabilizing”, which is a set of effects that Kava is certainly capable of providing. Herb Pharm Kava Extract is sold in health food stores, vitamin shops, department stores, Amazon, etc. What is this stuff, what is it made of, does it do anything, and is it worth buying?

In this article, I will take a close look at this extract and its effects, do a Herb Pharm Kava Review, and give my thoughts in the conclusion.

Kava Dermopathy – Everything you need to know

Kava kava root drinks have been enjoyed by humans throughout the South Pacific for thousands of years, with few noticeable side effects or annoying issues. One of the common unwanted side effects of kava is a certain type of itchy, rashy, scaly skin called Kava Dermopathy. Many users do not encounter this side effect (I personally have never had it), but it is not uncommon, and fortunately, it goes away fairly quickly upon cessation of kava use.

In this article, we will look in some detail as to what Kava Dermopathy is, what appears to cause it, and what to do if you find yourself with it.
