    during a recent study by ncbi, kava has very weak gaba binding activity so it apparently can be used for benzo withdrawal. works great for me. anybody have contrary info, let me know.

    Comment:
    The liver problems only arise when the kava preparation includes stems and leaves, as these are toxic. The root powder does not contain these toxins. The scare and subsequent banning came from preparations made in the early 90's that were extracts made using leaves and stems as well as roots, and many people who took it became very ill.
