What is Kavalactones (Kava extract powder)?

Kavalactones (Kava extract powder) are a class of lactone compounds found in the kava shrub. It is under research for the potential to have various psychotropic effects, including anxiolytic and sedative/hypnotic activities. It has been shown to potently inhibit a wide range of hepatic enzymes, suggesting a very high potential for interactions with many pharmaceuticals and herbal medications.

There are about 18 distinct types of kavalactones. Still, only six of them are routinely measured, as they represent greater than 90 percent of the total amount of kavalactones within the kava specimen. The six major kavalactones are desmethoxyyangonin, dihydrokavain, yangonin, kavain, dihydromethysticin, and methysticin. Each kavalactone produces a somewhat different physiologic effect in the body, and the number of different kavalactones present determines the quality of the kava.

Kava is consumed throughout the Pacific Ocean cultures of Polynesia, including Hawaii, Vanuatu, Melanesia, and some parts of Micronesia, for its sedating effects.
