What Kava herb Is:

In America, people like to wind down, fight stress, and generally take the edge off with cocktails, sleeping pills, and antidepressants. In Polynesia and the Pacific Ocean islands, where kava-kava (or just kava) is indigenous, they calm down with this pepper-family member. You can chew a few of the shrub's leaves to relax, but the best antistress medicine is in the roots, which are most often dried, ground, and used to make a tea. It's a perfect antithesis (and antidote) to coffee—and about as safe, too.

Kava is used to make a drink used in celebrations and rituals in the Pacific islands. It makes drinkers feel calm, relaxed and sociable. Large doses cause sleep.
