Brewing kava root typically requires a straining process that helps to remove the least soluble parts of the plant to provide a smoother, more enjoyable drinking experience. While brewing kava is a fairly easy, it does take some time and effort.
Micronized kava provides the same level of potency as drinking traditionally prepared kava root in less time and with less effort. The fine grinding process also helps to release more kavalactones from the fiber of the root. The relaxing properties in kava come from these kavalactones, so drinking kava with higher kavalactones levels can produce a stronger effect.
The micronization process also allows the kava root to dissolve more quickly in just about any type of liquid. Kava can have a very unpalatable taste, and the ability to mix micronized kava with liquids like almond milk, tea and juice makes for a more enjoyable drinking experience, especially when enjoying stronger strains of kava.
