What is Kava?

Kava relaxes your mind without interfering with the mental stability


Kava finds its origins in Western Pacific, the roots of which are used to prepare a drink that helps our mind relax without interfering with the mental stability. Kava is extensively consumed in various Polynesian cultures such as Hawaii, Vanuatu, Melanesia and several regions of Micronesia. The primary ingredients of Kava are the kavalactones and are typically harvested from plants that are about four years old to obtain them in right concentrations. Freshly harvested Kava consists of 80% water and the dried roots contain roughly 43% starch, 20% dietary fiber, 15% kavalactones, 12% water, 3.2% sugars, 3.6% protein, and 3.2% minerals. Researchers have classified kava as being noble and non-noble and at Kava Cove, we ensure that we use cured noble kava with the right composition of Kavalactones.

Kava Cove utilizes only "noble" kava with just the right composition of Kavalactones to help you relax. Stop by today and see the difference.


Contrary to its alcoholic counterparts, Kava produces a relaxing effect without a nauseating hangover the next day or impairment of judgement. Kava is also known to relax one’s muscles and eventually helps in sound sleep. Certain research studies have also demonstrated that drinking Kava resulted in memory enhancement and sharpening of senses. Importantly, due to the psychoactive effects that it produces, Kava is not addictive and does not produce dependency. Kava has medicinal effects as well and for centuries has been used to treat Central Nervous System related issues. Scientists and researchers have focused on the use of Kava to treat anxiety, depression and stress. Studies have also shown Kava to enhance the quality of sleep and treat restlessness and insomnia.
