Kava is known as an herb, from the South Pacific that has been used for medicinal purposes. It helps to reduce stress and anxiety. The people of Fiji and Vanuatu prefer drinking Kava, instead of alcohol, due to its calming affect. It has been shown to be as effective as Xanax or Valium. Kava can even help induce a deep and dreamful sleep, without disrupting your sleep patterns like alcohol does.
Kava the Calming HerbFor this review, I received two 16.9 oz bottles of Kalm with Kava! This sounded like a great product and I couldn't wait to try it. When I read the ingredients, I was very disappointed, because of the artificial sweetener and the dyes, along with the "other ingredients!"
I linked the ingredients that I believe are not good for the body, so that you may decide for yourself.
Ingredients: Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Proprietary Blend 1030mg (Kava Root, L-theanine, California Poppy)
Other Ingredients: Filtered Water, Natural Flavors (Glyceryl Albietate, Xanthan Gum), Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate (preserves freshness), Sucralose, Yellow #6, Red #40
I think the second "other ingredient" (Glyceryl Albietate) is misspelled. I tried to Google it and it came up with Glyceryl Abietate.
Since the Kalm with Kava has these ingredients, I can not recommend it!
