I buy my Kava form KonaKavaFarms.com Their Kava powder is a fine ground powder.
Just add 1-3 tsp. of Kava powder into your mug. I use 1 to 1 1/2 tsp.
Now add 1-3 tsp. Cocoa powder or Carob powder.
Add 1 T. of sweetener of choice. I use Splenda
Add 2 T. dry non dairy creamer or milk powder with hot/boiled water. (You can add hot milk of choice with or instead).
Mix and drink.
This drink is and anti-depressant and will help you sleep well with vivid dreams. This drink de-stresses and relaxes your mind to help loosen those tense muscles. Look up Kona kava farms for more information. Do not drink Kava if you are under 18, pregnant or lactating. Do not drink Kava if you have a history of anxiety attacks while on anti-depressants. I have given people Kava whom were taking anti-depressants with no history of anxiety attacks while on anti-depressants, with success.
I have also used this drink to stop excessive cramping in my uterus during that time of the month. Or when my Ibuprofen has not kicked in yet or just have pain in general and do not want to take the Ibuprofen. It works as a pain killer. I am not sure to what extent. You will have to try for yourself. Kava is also recommend for drug addicts in recovery. One would have to want to take Kava to begin with. I do not know for sure, how well it works for addicts. Kava can be bought in pill form to. Remember, "That one cannot help others that do not want to help themselves". For me it is one of those hard lessons learned dealing with people close to me.
If you have a better source, cool. I love this source because of the fine ground powder, quality, service and shipping to go anywhere else.
Hope you have a happy day....
