Muscle Relaxant Drugs & Their Common Side Effects
Mainstream muscle relaxants are usually purchased from pharmacies or prescribed to help control pain or muscle spasms. There are two dominant drugs used in this area. One is neuromuscular blockers which are often used during emergencies and in intensive care. The other is Spasmolytics which act on the central nervous system.
In modern world, the medicinal benefits of kava are becoming widely recognised as a natural solution to increase mind and body relaxation as well as calm and sooth the nerves. From our 13 years of medicinal kava research, Fiji Kava has discovered a specific level (%) of kavalactones in the root of the plant which only a select variety possess. From this possessing, we have derived chemotype profiles which are desirable for inducing sleep, supporting muscle relaxation as well as calming and soothing the nerves. Only this kind of kava is used by Fiji Kava. Just as important to the selection of kava, based on kavalactones percentage concentration and chemotype profiles, is how the kavalactones are extracted from the root of the plant. Our stringent 100% water extraction method is done without the addition of any artificial chemicals or contaminants – guaranteeing an additive free product. Otherwise, what’s the point?
