Kava Extract Found Effective Against Anxiety

A report recently published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (Vol. 20, No. 1, February 2000; 84-89), reviewed seven randomized double-blind studies and found that, overall, kava extract significantly reduced anxiety when compared to a placebo.

In addition, researchers pointed out that, in all the studies, very few side effects were reported. Two of the largest studies reported no side effects at all. By contract, drugs commonly prescribed to treat anxiety, including Buspar and Xanax, have been found to cause dangerous side effects.
