Sleeping overworked businessman at workMany have asked us if Kava is calming, or if it just makes you tired.  And, if Kava actually doesn’t make you sleepy, how does it help you to sleep?  These are all great questions with very simple answers!

For most, Kava is called the “anti-shyness” herb for a reason.  Kava, like alcohol, can reduce inhibitions, and make us more sociable.  I think that’s part of the reason Kava bars are so popular, is it offers a place to socialize comfortably, with other like-minded people who value natural herbal highs rather than any dangerous or illegal ones.  But, that’s just my opinion.

So, if something helps you sleep, will it just make me sleepy? Absolutely not!  The reason Kava is such an effective sleep aid, is because it helps calm the body and the mind, allowing you to either socialize or sleep; take your pick!  It’s not that Kava has any drowsiness attached to it; it simply allows the body to relax, to release some of that stress and anxiety, quieting the mind, and allowing us to ease into a state where sleep can far more easily find its way to us.

So, any Kava product on its own can be an amazing anti-shyness herb that reduces our inhibitions and helps us relax, but when combined with other products that are known to help the body relax, Kava’s powers become even more effective.  One example is our flagship product called ‘AWA CALM.  This expertly-crafted product takes Kava root, extracts it into a concentrated powder, then adds other clinically-proven herbs to induce a natural state of calm.  Do a quick Google search for the ingredients in ‘Awa Calm, and you will see how effectively these herbal products might work synergistically to boost the already-effective Kava calming effects.

It’s rare to get a return for ‘Awa Calm, but it’s also important to understand what ‘Awa Calm is for.  It’s not for going out an socializing.  ‘Awa Calm is more for a relaxing evening in, at home, or perhaps during a lunch break at work.  Although we don’t encourage combining alcohol with Kava, we have countless reports of how our customers like to blend a single glass of wine with two ‘Awa Calm capsules, for a very pleasant, long-lasting repose that is difficult to describe in words.  And, it’s not a sleepy repose, it’s just a very calm repose.

Hope this helps clarify; if you have similar questions, feel free to post them in the comments below, and I’ll respond as best I can.

Awa Calm Capsules

‘Awa Calm Anti-Anxiety Capsules are a flagship Kava-based product and a supercharged anxiety-reducer. Developed in our R&D facility in California, we are so proud of ‘Awa Calm Anti-Anxiety Capsules; our Kavalactone extract-based capsule that takes the best of what Kava Kava has to offer and amplifies it into an extraordinary calming experience.*

How do we do it?

Through an expertly-blended proprietary formula, we achieved peak effects. Each capsule delivers a full dose of 2-4-6 or 2-4-3 Kavalactone (the “happy” Kavalactone combinations), accompanied by the best herbal relaxers currently known. First, we add some organic Hops; proven for its calming effects. Then, we add ample amounts of Lemon Balm as it’s a proven natural stress reducer. After that, we blend in enough Passion flower to release and support the anxiety-reducing powers of Kava. Last is a personal favorite of mine, and one of our favorite herbs to mix with Kava; American Calamus Root. It’s just plain pleasurable and a perfect way to round out the anxiety-attacking ‘Awa Calm formulation that lasts for a solid two hours per serving.*

Directions: Take 2 capsules up to 3 times per day. Do not exceed 12 capsules per day. Maximum period of daily use: 3 months. Use may resume for 3 months after a 2-week break. This product is based on a strong 30% kavalactone extract of Kava, so please use with caution and care. With the synergistic effects that our carefully-crafted herbs, this can be a surprisingly powerful natural stress reducer. Several of our staff here have integrated it into their daily routine. I personally use it almost every evening to help me ease into the night, and give me some of the best rest I’ve had in quite some time. Some over the counter medications give me vivid dreams (not what I want when I’m trying to sleep), but ‘Awa Calm doesn’t leave me drowsy in the morning, and it’s gentle enough to use during the day if I wish as well if I need to simply kick back and relax.

Caution: If using prescription medications, seek the advice of a health care professional before using this product. Not to be taken during pregnancy or if breastfeeding. Not for use by persons under the age of 18 years or with alcoholic beverages. Keep out of reach of children. Used in excess or with substances that induce drowsiness, the ability to operate heavy equipment or a vehicle may be impaired.

      You may take both the 30% capsules and ‘Awa Calm in a single day. However since both products contain the same active ingredient (kavalactone), you may find that this does not produce twice the benefit. The best advice that I can give is to try both products and decide which one, and in which quantity, works best for you.

      Kava products have been used to manage pain, but they are primarily a stress reliever. Therefore it is a good idea to consider an OTC painkiller like ibuprofen as well. For more severe pain, talk to your doctor.

    Great Buy

    I wish I would’ve known about this years ago… I am going to try the 30% but this is better than the meds the doctors had me on for anxiety and no side effects. I definitely recommend for an alternative for the nasty meds the doctors prescribe.

      Finally, a natural remedy for anxiety that actually works! I have tried so many other herbal/natural remedies, and all of them were a waste of money, until I tried these. For me, the effects began within 15 minutes of taking two capsules, and were very noticeable for up to three hours. Then, even after that initial wave of more noticeable effects wore off, I still felt calm. These keep me grounded in the present, instead of having my mind venturing into a future full of “what ifs.” I also feel somehow “lighter” and more hopeful. And although I can definitely tell that I’ve taken something, because of a rather light and pleasant hazy feeling, I am still fully functional and can work. In fact, I’m even more functional after taking these than when I’m anxious, because I can focus. Another plus is that although these are calming, they don’t make me sleepy, so it’s fine to take them during the day. These capsules are worth every penny, and I am so glad that I took a chance and purchased them. I would highly recommend that others give them a try as well.
