The ”Sober Psychedelic” Buzz That Regenerates Your Body, Mind, & Spirit
Play • 1 hr 9 min

In my quest to find awesome alcohol alternatives that still make you feel great, I came across an ancient elixir called kava. I tried a cheap kava kava supplement and was unimpressed. A while later, I tried real kava. And in comparison, it knocked my socks off. So I brought on an expert to explain the difference, the science of kava, and what makes this such a prized plant.

Meet our guest

Cameron has spent years working within a network of functional medicine physicians with whom he has been involved in clinical research and protocol development for Neurodegenerative and trauma-related conditions.

Thank you to our partners Key takeaways
  • Nature operates in cycles and pulses, so humans respond fantastically to variation
  • Kava actively improves your biology, feels great, and can even help people come off dangerous medications by restoring optimal neurotransmitter (especially GABA) function
  • Full-spectrum botanicals contain other constituents that increase the effects, half-life, and mitigate side effects (isolates do not)
  • Kava increases mental clarity, confers longevity benefits, acts as a potent anti-inflammatory, protects the metabolism (and brain post-TBI), activates the body’s NRF2 antioxidant defense system, lifts mood, can accelerate weight loss, and makes you more social
