Is Kava Healthier Than Alcohol?

Is Kava Healthier Than Alcohol?
Alcohol has been a traditional go-to for unwinding and social events in Western culture, but more and more people are turning to kava as a healthier alternative.

At Bula Kava House, we've witnessed firsthand the transformative power of this ancient beverage. Kava isn’t just an alternative to alcohol, but a superior choice for those looking to enhance their social and physical well-being.

Whether you’re “sober curious” or are just interested in trying something new, here’s why kava is a great choice.

Kala Calms, Alcohol Depresses
Kava is a drink derived from the root of the piper methysticum plant native to the Pacific Islands. It’s celebrated for its calming effects. 

Unlike alcohol, which can impair judgment and lead to major health problems, kava promotes relaxation and mental clarity. Its active ingredients, known as kavalactones, work to soothe the mind and ease the body, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a peaceful unwind at the end of a hectic day. 

Kava can also give you a happy, relaxed feeling that can ease and facilitate social situations.

Social Bonding Without the Hangover
One of the most compelling reasons to choose kava over alcohol is the absence of a hangover. This means you can enjoy the camaraderie of a social gathering or a quiet evening with kava and wake up the next morning feeling refreshed and clear-headed.

Alcohol is metabolized in the body into acetaldehyde, which can cause nasty side effects, including hangovers and disturbed REM sleep patterns. Kava actually helps support REM sleep. 

Of course, you can overindulge in kava as well. Take it slow, especially as you start enjoying kava or when trying a new variety.

Kava's Health Benefits
Beyond its calming effects, kava is also associated with a range of health benefits. 

Studies have shown that kava can help reduce anxiety and stress, improve sleep quality and even aid muscle relaxation. These benefits make kava not only a safer alternative to alcohol but also a positive addition to your overall wellness routine. (Or your fitness routine.)

And not that we’re counting calories over here, but kava doesn’t have many. That’s a big difference from drinking a couple of beers in an evening.

Making the Switch to Kava
For those interested in exploring kava as an alternative to alcohol, the journey is both exciting and rewarding. You can replace a night out at a bar with an evening hanging with friends at a kava bar — no need to totally change up your routine. 

Or, you can enjoy kava at home. Instant kava allows you to focus on your time with others and your evening’s activities. Or, if you prefer a little bit of hands-on activity and ceremony, you can make kava in the traditional way at home.
