Kava Kava is best-known as a ceremonial South Pacific beverage. The earliest European knowledge of Kava Kava dates back to the late 1700s, with the journeys of Captain Cook.
Today, usage of Kava Kava beverages in tropical climates is similar to the use of alcoholic beverages in the West. However, the plant from which the beverage is made was found to have useful properties to aid anxiety, hyperactivity, stress, and restlessness.
For two years, Doctor’s Choice attempted to legally bring their Kava Kava back onto the market. In March 2012, Doctor’s Choice™ became the first Kava Kava product to receive a Natural Product Number—and therefore, a green light—from Health Canada.
With our brand of Kava Kava, Canadians can once again enjoy the relaxing benefits of Kava Kava supplementation, with no worries over legality or safety. And now, in an easy-to-take liquid form, anyone can enjoy the relaxing benefits of Kava Kava!
