You don’t have to look further than your own Facebook wall to hear about a new root or herb that is the new thing. And usually, before you can make your way to Whole Foods to stock up, a new trendy herb has already replaced it. But some herbs have staying power and every once in a while, you’ll find one so popular that it even gives way to its own community culture.. It’s time to meet the Kava root. Kava comes from the South Pacific Islands. The root of the Kava plant is ground up into a fine powder, then soaked and strained into a tea. It’s said to be a natural relaxant. "Kava is believed to be working on a part of the brain called the Limbic System which is the part that controls emotions," says Dr. Bart Price, MD of Manasota Medical Group in Sarasota, FL. "It's giving the similar effects of alcohol where you have the calming, euphoric feeling, but supposedly it doesn't work on your motor skills or mental acuity." Many people enjoy the tea as way to chill out, says Ross Kashtan, owner of Bula on the Beach, a Kava bar in Madeira Beach, FL. "It's just an overall relaxed state of being," says Kashtan. "Some people with anxiety issues come here to partake in it just to chill them out and relax them." The first Kava bar in the States opened in 2002 in South Florida, and now more and more bars, like Kashtan's, are popping up throughout the country. But don’t let the word bar fool you. Kava is often used as a social alternative to alcohol. In fact, it's advised that the two shouldn't be mixed. "You never want to mix Kava and alcohol on the same day," says Kashtan. "We always warn people when they show up." Kashtan's bar has those warnings posted throughout. "Kava metabolizes through the liver, as well as alcohol," says Price. "So there is a concern as we don't yet know what the combined effect will be." Kashtan says many of his customers don't drink alcohol at all and will choose to drink Kava as their social alternative. An interesting thing about authentic kava bars is that everyone drinks the tea together. "Kava isn’t something you just grab and hit the road with," says Kashtan. "It's a communal thing. That's what the tribesmen did on the islands. Everyone here drinks together. The bartender will make sure everyone has a shell of Kava." Everyone in the bar raises their bowls together and say "Bula!" as the toast. "Bula is the Fijian way of saying Cheers," says Kashtan. "It means, To long life, good health, happiness, and prosperity." The Kava community is very inclusive and that’s one of its draws. "When you're here, you'll notice that there's all walks of life," says Kashtan of his patrons. "Young, old, black, white, gay, straight, redneck, blue collar, white collar... Everybody joins together, and everybody can just be themselves." http://www.howboutjoey.com http://www.whatsupjoey.com
