Common Uses

Kavalactones, the chemicals produced from the root, provide the health benefits. These chemicals have been shown to reduce convulsions and also contain pain-relieving properties, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Kava has also been used to treat attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder or ADHD, migraine headaches, muscle pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, urinary tract infections and certain respiratory tract infections. A study published in the "Canadian Medical Association Journal" in November of 2003 stated that scientific evidence from randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind studies have concluded that kava is an effective treatment for anxiety.
