The Best Way Of Drinking Kava?

Enjoying Kava should be easy, so why not make Kava easy? We pondered that question and we are pleased to introduce a simpler way to enjoy Kava, no soaking or straining required. Just open, pour, and mix into your favorite beverage to enjoy that instant relaxation. What makes our Instant Kava superior to the “other guys” is that instead of “micronizing” Kava root into a nauseating, gritty, fibrous powder, we’ve developed our own method that removes the fiber and makes for a smooth, creamy, beverage that still retains its potency. That means no more nausea, no more upset stomach, and all the benefits of a great tasting Kava.  At 9% Kavalactone content, it dwarfs your standard issue Instant Kava out there.  Go ahead, see for yourself and try to find a higher quality Instant Kava.

Polynesian Gold™ Brand Kava Extracts - Feel like Hawaiian Kava, only 4 times stronger!

We've always taken pride in our Polynesian Gold™ Brand of Kava extracts but recent research proves what we've already known all along, they're the best in the world!

A recent study published in the Journal of Food Science Technology (DOI: 10.1007/s13197-013-1047-2) co-authored by Wang and Bidderbender, explored the chemotype of kava beverages prepared using arguably the most desirable kava variety in the world, the famous Hawaiian Mahakea variety.  Mahakea is highly desirable due to its potency and beautiful noble chemotype of either 426 or 462, it is considered by many to be the best variety of Kava available anywhere.

When the authors prepared a beverage from Mahkea roots acquired from Waimanalo Research Farm on Oahu, University of Hawaii, under laboratory settings, using 1:3 ratio of water to root in a blender, they found that the resulting beverage had a chemotype of 245.  "...The chemotypes of the first three kavalactones in the Mahakea rhizomes beverages were 245."  Thats right folks, when you prepare a kava beverage, the chemotype changes due to the varying degrees of solubility of the different lactones.  Perhaps you don't really like a 426 chemotype, perhaps you like the 245 chemotype that it turns into after you prepare a beverage from it!

We're proud to report that our current batch of Polynesian Gold™ Water Soluble Extract boasts 30% Kavalactones, is completely water soluble, and matches the desirable 245 chemotype of a kava beverage produced under laboratory conditions using high quality Hawaiian Mahakea variety Kava!  It just doesn't get any better than that.  Actually it does, Polynesian Gold™ Water Soluble Kava Extract is 3-4 times the potency of commercially available Mahakea root and is a fraction of the cost per serving.
