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.
