Kava Kava For Anxiety
    #4045755 - 04/12/05 02:36 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hello,

I recently picked up a bottle of kava kava assayed whole extract at my local health food store; extract of kava rhizome & root. Each capsule contains 60mg of kavalactones. It says to take 2 capsulules twice per day. (each capsule contains 200mg kava extract which provides 60mg of kavalactones.) Pharma Kava is prepared from the rhizome & roots of Piper methysticum plants which are grown chemical free in the South Pacific Islands of Vanuatu.
I suffer from severe anxiety and panic disorder. I weigh 135lbs, and im withdrawing drom xanax and thought kava may be a better substitute.
Should I make tea for the most benefecial effects or just eat the capsules? And how many should I eat to get any noticeable effects.

Thanks and Peace

Kava isnt going to be a substitute for a benzo.... It will help the anxiety by relaxing and sedating you. It wont provide the loved "security" feeling you get on benzos.
You might find that the storebought extract wont do much as it might have been sitting there for a while and extra precautions are never taken while producing mass amounts of extract.
I suggest buying a paste or buying bulk herb off the net, that way you can assure quality becuase you know the source.
Personally i find the kava paste very effective, but expensive.
