Kava is native to the islands of the South Pacific and is a member of the pepper family. The roots of the kava plant contain compounds called kavalactones which are responsible for many of kava’s beneficial effects. Pacific cultures traditionally use the kava drink during rituals and social gatherings. They have used kava in ceremonies to bring about a state of relaxation.

Healthy digestion and nutrient absorption start with chewing your food.
There are numerous benefits to mindful eating including better digestion and nutrient absorption. Slowing down during meals and really focusing on 'how and why' you’re eating reduces overeating and binge eating, helps manage weight, cope with chronic eating problems and reduces anxiety about food and body image. Trust me when I say it’s worth making the effort to learn, practice and embrace it.
