This Extra Strong Noble Kava Root (powdered) consistently tests at 14%-16% Kavalactone content. It’s one of the sweeter-tasting Kava Root powders we have tried. We tried Kava from all over the world; from Hawaii, Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga, New Guinea, and even Germany. We chose our favorite Extra Strong Noble Kava Powder out of all of them for our in-house brand, and are proud to ship it anywhere in the world.
We personally feel that the calmness and pleasant repose that this product has to offer is one of our favorite of any of the Kava powders we’ve tried.* Yes, we’re biased because it’s our own brand, but why not try it out and see for yourself? Our harvest will never change; from year to year we will continue to offer the same root, from the same farm, for a consistent quality you can rely on.
Waka and Kava are both from the root of the kava plant, but the Waka (lateral roots) comes from the exposed part of the plant and the Kava (tap roots) are underground on the plant. Lateral roots are typically stronger than underground roots, especially when they’re grown in full sun. Since we use a blend of both lateral and underground roots for this particular product, the powdered root is just a bit darker in color, allowing you to easily visually tell if the Kava root you’re buying is lateral, underground, or a blend of both.
At Kava.com, we decided that our kava needed to have the best of all these worlds. Our Extra Strong Powdered Kava Root is a fine blend with a minimum 70-80% concentration of lateral (waka) root to ensure a kavalactone content of about 7%, while retaining a delicate spicy flavor and rich taste. It’s not quite as smooth as our other fine drinking Kava, but for those who like an extra “kick” in their Kava without adding something like Kava Tincture Plus or Kavalactone 55% Paste, this is the Kava for you.
This extra strong powdered Kava root can be highly relaxing and has been known actually to numb certain body parts of the body. Safe in controlled amounts, it makes a fine dietary supplement with no documented or substantiated side effects. It is considered safe by the highly reputed German “E Commission” whose research has shown its calming effect relieves anxiety, restlessness, sleeplessness, and stress related symptoms such as muscle tension or spasm.*
