If you want to experience the benefits of kava but you don’t like the taste, you should get your hands on some of this Kava candy that comes straight from Hawaii!

Now Foods Kava Extract Tablets Review

This Kava Extract from now foods contains not only kava but also tryptophan, 5-HTP, valerian, hops, and passionflower. Since this product comes in capsule form there’s really not much to say about the taste. However, this product did not seem very potent. They advertise that it’s 250mg and 30% kavalactones but the strength although noticeable, does seem a bit underwhelming. The added herbs are also said to promote relaxation, so some people may find this product appealing due to its overall value. This may be a decent product to use if you are on the go or you don’t have time to mix up some real kava powder. Overall the price does seem fair, but if you’re looking for...

Lami Premium Kava Root Powder

The first thing that stands out about this Kava root powder is that it’s very smooth tasting. So if you’re someone who doesn’t really enjoy the taste of kava, then you should check this product out. The best thing about Lami is that they source their product only from organic and Pesticide-free farms. The taste and smoothness of this product can definitely testify to that too. Although this product isn’t quite as strong as a couple other kavas we’ve tried, it’s still quite potent overall. Unlike some other products we’ve tried, the texture on this one wasn’t clumpy or sticky at all, and it smelled like a very fresh batch of kava root. This is really just a great...

Mood and Mind Premium Kava Root Powder

So we’ve been anxious to do a review on this product for a while now, and we finally got some time to sit down and write our thoughts on this. This product is one that we unfortunately, overlooked at first. It wasn’t until recently that we discovered it, and gave it a try for the first time. Wow, we were definitely missing out because this is the highest quality and overall best Kava product we’ve ever tried. The product has a concentration of 10% Kavalactones, and so far that’s one of the strongest concentration we’ve found in any Kava root powder we’ve tried. If you’re not familiar with Kavalactones, they are the active ingredient in kava that determines how...

FU’U Kava Root Powder

We recently tried out some of the “Fu’u Kava root powder” from a company called “Bula Kava House”. We were expecting some good things from this kava due to its claims of being one of the stronger products. This is one of the lighter colored kava products than what you normally find with standard kava powders. The first thing we noticed right off the bat was that the taste was a bit different from your normal kavas. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing however we agreed that it tasted like it wasn’t very fresh and that it may have been sitting around in a warehouse for a long time or something. The strength of this product was also a...

Kava kava root from Starwest Botanicals

What I love about Starwest Botanicals is that they’re products always seem so fresh when they arrive. I guess this is kind of expected from an herbal Botanicals specialty shop, but then again not many of these shops actually sell kava either. In fact, my favorite benefit of kava root is most definitely the freshness of the plant due to no added processes. Kava root products also tend to be cheaper than powders because less work goes into the product than your traditional kava powders. Anyways, Starwest kava products are truly top of the line and this one is no exception. However, keep in mind that when you buy a root product they do require some added work to prepare, and they typically do...

This kava root extract tincture not only includes kava, but also organic valerian, skullcap, wood betony, California poppy, and organic alcohol. These popular herbs have been favorites of herbalists, and those who are anxiety-prone for a very long time. It’s no wonder it’s called the Relaxation extract, because that’s exactly what it does. The combination of 4 highly relaxing herbs in 1 extract is actually quite potent and really mellows you out.  This product can be especially useful for sleep for those can’t seem to get a night’s rest, because it helps clear your mind and catch some...

King Solomon Hippo Kava (Organic Instant Kava Juice Extract)

If you’re looking for a top quality Kava product that’s very strong, King Solomon from Happy Hippo might be the best choice for you. This product is about 4 times as potent as normal Kava powders, and it is one of the top 3 kava extracts we have tried. What was shocking is that the taste of this product wasn’t bad for an extract, and King Solomon is also an instant kava, so the preparation is very simple. If you’re tired of getting low-quality kava kava products and you want something that’s a sure thing, you can’t go wrong with ordering some King...

If you’re looking for a good kava strainer this one is not a bad choice. Strainers are great if you want to make a lot of kava drink at once. If you’re just looking for something to make a decent amount of kava quickly and easily, we would recommend going with the Kava Shaker instead. However, if you’re really looking to save a few bucks this is $5 cheaper than the...
