Is kava safe for me?


Kava is safe for most people in moderation. The recommended daily dose is about 300 mg of kavalactones, and consuming more could potentially cause stomach upset or drowsiness. It is also best to skip out on kava if you are taking pharmaceutical antidepressants, suffering from a pre-existing heart, lung, or liver condition, or frequently drinking large quantities of alcohol. Pregnant women may also use discretion, although there are no known reports of complications with kava and pregnancy.
