Why is traditional hand squeezed kava better for you?


"Instant" kavas are more bitter than traditional, hand-squeezed kava, and can sometimes be harsher on the stomach as well. This is due to differences in how the kava is processed to make it “instant”. Many people find instant kava to lack the strength of traditional, hand-squeezed kava. Studies have found that preparing kava the traditional, hand squeezed way is the best method for preserving the many health benefits of kava, including studies that show that traditional hand squeezed kava may help prevent cancer (click to view video). For the full experience, we’ve found that kava is best enjoyed when prepared and served the way it has been for centuries!
