Home >> Kavalactones
The medicinal benefits of Kava have long been recognised as a safer, natural alternative to help treat anxiety, stress and other medical conditions (over prescription medicines).
The breakthrough in why Kava is a global phenomenon in natural and complementary medicines, is Kavalactones. Kavalactones are compounds found in the root of the Kava plant. With 200 known varieties of Kava across the South Pacific, you can imagine how true a statement “kava ain’t kava” is. The physiological effects of Kava are usually viewed as an important characteristic of the plants quality for customers. As well as characteristics such as where it was grown, the taste and cleanliness.
There are 6 known major Kavalactones which have been identified into a numbering system below:
1 | Desmethoxyyangonin (DMY)
2 | Dihydrokavain (DHK)
3 | Yangonin (YAN)
4 | Kavain (KAV)
5 | Dihydromethysticin (DHM) and
6 | Methysticin (METH)
Kava is tested in a suitably equipped laboratory to determine the quantity and ratio from the six Kavalactones it contains. The ‘chemotype’, or Kavalactone profile, is then determined by ranking the proportions of the six Kavalactones from highest to the lowest amount. In addition to desirable chemotypes, the total amount of Kavalactones within the kava is also important.
From our 13 years of scientific research, plant and clinical tests, Fiji Kava has discovered a specific level (%) of Kavalactones in the root that only a few kava varieties possess. From this, we have derived specific chemotype profiles which are desirable for targeting stress, anxiety, insomnia and muscle relief. Fiji Kava exclusively uses this type of kava across all products.
The extraction method of kavalactones from the root of the plant is just as important as the selection of kava, based on the percentage concentration and chemotype profiles. Our stringent 100% water extraction method is done without the addition of any artificial chemicals or contaminants. This guarantees no nasties in what is consumed by our customers. Otherwise, what’s the point?

Our kava possesses specific % levels of kavalactones that we have scientifically researched and clinically trialled as desirable to actively target anxiety, stress, insomnia and weary muscles.
As well as being TGA and FDA compliant and listed as a complementary medicine in Australia, kava is also sold as a dietary supplement in most other international markets.
