The Kava Kava plant is an ancient alternative to modern problems because it is available in nature for hundreds of years. 1 There are anthropological evidences that Kava Kava has been used for over 3000 years in the Pacific Islands with spiritual, medicinal and social purposes. Historically, the most important regions where the use of Kava had highlighted were Fiji, Samoa and Tonga.2 During the nineteenth century, researchers attributed the relaxing properties for a group of resinous compounds called kavalactones. Their explanations describe that these compounds, found into plant roots, have the ability to promote muscle relaxation without blocking nerve signals that maintain their tone. This may explain how the Kava reduces the physical strain without affecting the mental processes.3
