From The Root of Happiness™:
"Not all Kava Extracts are created equal! We have been in the Kava business for many years and have seen many Kava products come and go. Our Polynesian Gold™ lineup of Kava extract powders, oils, and liquids, are by far the highest quality Kava products to be found anywhere, bar none. Learn the difference between Polynesian Gold™ brand Kava extracts that are produced by experts in the Kava industry, and the cheap, mass produced, poor quality Kava extracts from China."
"Our quality starts with root selection. We use hand selected, premium Borogu variety Kava roots to make our Kava extracts, not leftover scraps and chips or undesirable cultivars such as “Tudei” or “Waeld” Kavas. Our Borogu Kava is then thoroughly washed and hand peeled in an FDA GMP facility before being air dried indoors, rather than being exposed to the elements to be sun dried. Air drying preserves the Kavalactones while the UV rays and heat from the sun degrades them."
"Our proprietary processing technology achieves full spectrum potency like no other method on the market today. Even if quality roots are used as starting material, improper solvent selection, temperature, and extraction time, can drastically change the quality, and even safety profile of Kava. With our unique processing methods, we are able to achieve a full spectrum extract that retains the chemotype of our premium starting material and provides unparalleled water solubility found in no other powdered kava extract!"
"Quality through lab testing. Each batch of Polynesian Gold brand extracts are rigorously tested and must meet extremely strict quality controls before the Polynesian Gold brand name is bestowed upon the product. We test our materials for microbiological, heavy metals, pesticides, as well as Kavalactone content. Not only do we test the total kavalactone content, but we test each individual Kavalactone to ensure that the chemical profile of our extract is of a desirable noble chemotype. The result is a consistent, high quality kava product that represents the very best kava of Noble variety kava."
"Fact: 99% of Kava Extracts that are produced in China are Tudei chemotypes!
Through years of lab testing and reviewing the chromatographic data, it is clear that cheap Chinese Kava extracts offered on Alibaba and other trade sites are produced with undesirable varieties of Kava such as “Tudei” or simply scraps and chips of unidentified varieties. The result is a kava product that contains undesirable chemical profile which leaves the user feeling tired, groggy, uninspired, and nauseated. Our contract labs use our raw materials, our extraction method, and our quality markers to produce some of the finest Kava extracts on the market."
