Kava King Products Introduces New Natural Products


raditional beverages made from the root of

the kava plant, native to the South Pacific, have been consumed for thousands of years by indigenous island- ers to promote natural re- laxation. Kava King Products, Inc., based in Ormond Beach, Florida, is introducing a line of natural products containing kava, used for its calming effect in countering stress and anxiety. Supporting research of high quality kava’s safety and beneficial efficacy appeared in Planta Medica, The Journal of Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research, in 2010. The company’s instant kava drink mixes are available in

six flavors: Vanuatu Blend, Berry Blend, Cocoa Blend, Va- nilla Shake, Berry Shake and Cappuccino Shake. Made from kava roots sourced from the island of Vanuatu, they feature a patented micronization process that makes them easy to mix, with no filtering needed. Kava King Products also offers a Kava Dark Chocolate Bar that blends rich, chocolate taste with the kava experience. Other natural products include Tamanu and Nangai

Treatment Oils, described by company representative Todd Hotaling: “Tamanu oil can help heal old and new scars and can also be used for extremely dry skin to aid smoothness, firmness and hydration. Nangai oil is best known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and may help alleviate joint pain. Both oils make exceptional hair conditioners—Tamanu makes the hair softer and Nangai gives it a beautiful shine.”
