South African Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) Kanna has an incredible scope of human benefits. It supports the reduction of anxious feelings, helping with the overwhelmed or high-load state anxiety that occurs when the brain region known as the amygdala is over-activated. Since anxiety can impair cognitive performance, Kanna helps with focus.
Ease: Hawaiian Kava Gummies - Hawaiian Kava (Piper methysticum):
In Pacific Island indigenous cultures, Kava is used to bring peace, relieve anxiety, stress and pain, reduce inflammation, accelerate sleep onset and relax muscles. Women use it for menstrual cramps and symptoms associated with menopause. We crafted an extremely high quality, organic gummy, using solventless extraction of the essence of the Kava root to create a rosin, with 87% kavalactones. There is no finer Kava product anywhere.
Kava has a bitter taste, which is offset by the sweet mango. Kava initially creates a numbing feeling in the mouth, which fades: this is normal and to be expected.
