Capsule Material Information:
As an herbal supplement, take two capsules as needed. Do not exceed four capsules in 24 hours.
The literal meaning of the scientific name, Piper methysticum, is "intoxicating pepper". Ethnobotanical reports suggest that it originated from a wild form of Kava in Vanatu. Since then cultivars have been introduced to many other Polynesian islands, where it has been used both medicinally and culturally as a national (intoxicating) drink. The ceremonial ritual of taking Kava was witnessed in the late 1700's, by captain James Cook's expedition. During the 1990's Kava gained popularity as a dietary supplement and it became one of the top selling supplements sold in the USA.
Discontinue use two weeks prior to scheduled surgery and inform surgeon. Do not exceed recommended dose. Keep out of reach of children.
US FDA advises that a potential risk of rare, but severe, liver injury may be associated with kava-containing dietary supplements. Ask a healthcare professional before use if you have or have had liver problems, frequently use alcoholic beverages, or are taking any medication. Stop use and see a doctor if you develop symptoms that may signal liver problems (e.g., unexplained fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, fever, vomiting, dark urine, pale stools, yellow eyes or skin). Not for use by persons under 18 years of age or by pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not for use with alcoholic beverages. Excessive consumption may impair ability to drive or operate machinery.
