PURE HAWAIIAN MAHAKEA`AWA POWDER
`Awa is the Hawaiian name for a plant that has been cultivated by Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian Pacific Islanders for centuries. `Awa on many of the islands in the vast Pacific is also known as kava or kava-kava. The plant is a member of the pepper family, with the botanical name Piper methysticum. `Awa or kava is also the term for the potent root of the plant, as well as drinks and extracts from the root.
The history of the `awa beverage is one of a drink sacred to the peoples of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. In 1948 Margaret Titcomb described the beverage in her classic study on `awa in Hawai`i before the arrival of European explorers:
“…Outside of water and drinking coconut, no other drink was known. Its effect is to relax mind and body and was used by farmer and fisherman for this purpose. Medical Kahunas (learned men) had many uses for it. It was customary for chiefs to drink before meals, for commoners also if obtainable. It was essential on occasions of hospitality and feasting, and as the drink of pleasure of the chiefs…It was a fit and necessary offering to the gods and the gods shared with man the desire for its potent effects…”
The `awa beverage is potent, but not in the same manner as alcoholic liquor. This important difference is recognized in an old Hawaiian saying” He kanaka kamea inu `awa; he pua’a-laho ka mea inu kuaipa,” which Margaret Titcomb translates as: The man who drinks `awa is still a man, but the man who drinks liquor becomes a beast.”
People around the world are beginning to appreciate the benefits of `awa that islanders of the Pacific have known for generations because `awa is a natural way to: STAY CALM, MAINTAIN COMPUSURE, RELAX AND INCREASE MENTAL FOCUS, FOCUS AND CONCENTRATE UNDER PRESSURE, DEAL WITH IRRITABILITY AND MOOD SWINGS, BEACOME MORE AT EASE AND GREAT FOR INSOMNIA.
