Kava, also known as Piper Methysticum or Kava-Kava, is a plant native to the western Pacific regions, including Fiji, Polynesia, Hawaii, and Vanuatu. Kava has been used for at least 3,000 years as a recreational relaxant, hypnotic, and centerpiece of varying rituals . Today, many people choose to supplement with Kava for similar reasons.
Kava roots can be ground and made into a drink, but many people prefer to supplement with Kava extract capsules due to convenience. For those who choose to drink Kava, it is commonly done socially with a group of people as a means to relax and celebrate.
