Kava Ashwagandha Valerian / RelaxMe / Calm Surfer™
A trifecta is defined as a perfect group of three, or as three 'wins'. Remedy's calming trifecta is Kava-Kava, Ashwagandha and Valerian. These settle the mind, muscles and nerves. The mind becomes calmer, the anti-spamodic effect of Valerian relaxes the muscles and Kava-Kava (used for hundreds of years in the South Pacific as the West uses wine to relax) takes the edge off daily stress without inducing addiction. We recommend that you avoid driving or operating heavy machinery until you test out its individual effect on you. Alcohol intake intensifies the effect. Many of our clients use this triple-tincture as a sleep aide when unable to sleep due to stress.
We provide the following advisory issued by the FDA in 2002: 'The FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) notified healthcare professionals and consumers of the potential risk of severe liver injury associated with the use of kava-containing dietary supplements. Supplements containing the herbal ingredient kava are promoted for relaxation (e.g., to relieve stress, anxiety, and tension), sleeplessness, menopausal symptoms and other uses. Kava-containing products have been associated with liver-related injuries, including hepatitis, cirrhosis, and liver failure. Given these reports, persons who have liver disease or liver problems, or persons who are taking drug products that can affect the liver, should consult a physician before using kava-containing supplements.
