The first is to know your daily kava intake limit and stick to it. The second is to stay consistent with how much the daily kava consumption is suggested drink. Third, is to remember to drink water when enjoying kava daily.

Kava is meant to be enjoyed daily so knowing the right amount to drink is key to keeping your daily kava ritual within a safe and healthy rhythm. All of us here at Kava-Bula enjoy kava on the regular but definitely keep a conscious daily routine about how much we drink. Staying healthy means we have to know our limits because we only want to benefit from our kava experience, right? So let’s look into 3 tips to remember to ensure safety with your daily kava consumption.

Tip #1: Know Your Daily Kava Intake Limit

One of the major things that people forget about kava is that too much of it can be a bad thing. That is why it is very important to know your limits before consuming kava daily.

It is suggested that the daily intake of kavalactones should be 250mg. Kavalactones are the active compound in kava root. The suggested serving amount is 8-12 ounces of kava per serving. Now, most recreational users of dried kava consume 5, 10, or even 20 cups of kava in a session! I myself will go over this limit as well as other people I know that drink kava daily. This serving suggestion was made by safety councils doing clinical trials to inform the public about a safe amount for consumption. Going over the suggested amount can be harmful to your liver which is why there is a recommended serving amount.

However, for yourself you might want to stick to below this 250mg level until you are aware of your limit. We never want people to have a bad experience with kava and so long as you are hydrated and safe you will have a great time.

It is good to be consciously aware of the amount of kava you drink daily for your personal health. While many people commonly go over the suggested limit, I would suggest that you keep a personal limit for yourself and stick to it.

Tip# 2: Stay Consistent With How Much You Drink Daily

Consistency is key to finding a healthy balance in your daily kava intake. It ensures a healthy rhythm when you are out at the kava bar. However, this can be a challenge at times in social settings especially if you are in the company of your friends.

I get it, you and your friends meet up at the kava bar and they have a DJ playing and you are ready to party. When you are having a good vibe you want to keep that energy going. Before you know it that second shell is now your fourth if you are not careful. It is easy to do especially if you are in the company of your buddies so what I suggest is to have a game plan for how much you will have that night.

Give yourself a reasonable limit and stay consistent whether it is DJ night or you are solo working on a project on your laptop. I do quite a bit of my work remotely so I tend to stick to a routine if at all possible; this is one of the major benefits of kava bars! They are great for work.

I myself decide to post up at the kava bar to get some work done. I set a certain limit and stick to it. It is a simple yet effective plan to ensure you can stay within a healthy boundary for yourself. Remember that it doesn’t take much to enjoy that kava buzz so just keep it at that and stay consistent with it.

Tip# 3: Remember to Drink Water

Drinking kava daily can dehydrate you especially if you are drinking it daily. What I suggest is that for every 8-12 ounces of kava, you drink 16 ounces of water. Keep a 1:1 ratio of kava to water.

Drinking water doesn’t dilute the effect of kava so you won’t have to worry about water killing your kava buzz. Water is important for many things, so staying on top of being hydrated only benefits you and your kava experience. Whenever I have a shell I make sure to follow the golden ratio of kava to water.

Drinking water actually enhances the effect of cognitive function and mood. If you are like me and spend a lot of time working remotely on a laptop, I find that it is imperative to keep a sharp mind and stay focused. There is no doubt that kava helps me concentrate but I mostly rely on staying hydrated so I always keep my reusable water bottle with me. It holds 40 ounces so it helps me keep track of that 1:1 ratio of kava to water that I mentioned earlier.

It doesn’t take much to stay on top staying hydrated with your daily consumption of kava. It just takes a little effort, repetition, and dedication. Remember that consistency in hydration is key! Bula!
