Kava Kava Extract Powder
Kava Kava root extract is most widely recognized as a calming agent. Supplementation may help assist with feelings of unease, sleeplessness and muscle tension.
Caution: May cause drowsiness. Do not mix with alcohol, drive or operate heavy machinery while taking this supplement.
Serving Size & Timing
As a dietary supplement, take 1000 mg (scant 1/2 tsp) once or twice daily, or as directed by a physician. Do not take for more than 3 months without a 2-week break between cycles. Because effects may decrease with repeated use, use only as needed to avoid building a tolerance.
As with all supplements meant to promote a general well-being, it is important to note that a supplement such as this is by no means a substitute for legitimate medical advice. It is always best to talk to a doctor if you are experiencing problems with your health before taking a course.

I am NOT a Kava connoisseur, but have used capsules, couple different supposedly better quality root powders, etc.
If you want the general mood lift / anxiety reduction of Kava and don't want/need the "traditional Kava Experience" of preparation, swigging bowls of tea, etc., THEN THIS IS GOOD STUFF. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the "Traditional" approach of using root powder and I'm confident, as the Kava aficionados say, that this approach gives you a more pleasant overall experience. But if you just want the therapeutic effect as a supplement, Bulk Supplement's extract here is a good option, easier to dose and VERY much more affordable.
THIS IS PURELY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, but roughly, I'd say 1/4 tsp approximates one 250 mg extract capsule (common national brand, 30% Kavalactones, or 75 mg Kavalactones per capsule). 500 g of this extract is thus about equivalent to 700 capsules. That would be about $120 worth of capsules based on best internet prices I've found for the capsules.
If you can stand it, holding a dose in your mouth will yield a nice, quick effect. Haven't tried it, but many report mixing Kava with something "oleophilic" (oil loving) such as chocolate, olive oil, coconut milk, etc helps with absorption for one who prefers drinking it. *

This is the best Kava I have used. The powder is easy to work with. I used organic apple juice in my nutria bullet and the mixture created a nice flavor! This Kava works great! The Kava caused a nice relaxing feeling that lasted a while. I highly recommend it. *
