What is kava?

KAVA – Piper Methysticum

Kava is an herbal medicine and tropical herb used for over 3000 years in the South Pacific. It is a member of the pepper family of plants.

Kava is efficacious (you’ll feel the effects!) and used similarly to alcohol for social lubrication, relaxation and calming of the mind.

Also known as Kava Kava, Intoxicating Pepper, Kawa Kawa,  Ava (Samoa), Awa (Hawaii), Yongona (Fijii).

What is in Zend?

In the Pacific there are dozens of varieties of kava kava. Our Zend elixir exclusively contains traditionally harvested kava kava from Vanuatu (a Noble Variety). Our Zend formulation took 3 years to perfect and focuses on those kavalactones that promote relaxation, a calm mind and an uplifting of spirit.

Kava is an all natural anti-anxiety, stress busting drink which promotes a feeling of well-being, a quiet mind and state of relaxation.
