Kava Root has been known to aid with sleeping problems. Kava, also known as kava-kava, has been used by Pacific Island cultures for centuries for its relaxing properties. Studies show that kava can be effective at elevating mood related to anxiety and depression.
One major benefit of using kava to treat anxiety is that it doesn’t appear to have much of an effect on your reaction time.
Additionally, while a decreased sex drive is one adverse effect of depression, research shows that kava can significantly boost sex drive in women.
