KAVAPLEX MIND is formulated with a kava strain for an emphasis on mental focus

KAVAPLEX MINDTM is a unique full spectrum kava oil that delivers the same full array of therapeutic effects as the original KAVAPLEXTM  oil, but with an extra brain boosting Nootropic kick. This is due to the incorporation of a very unique cognitive enhancing strain of kava found exclusively in the island of Tonga in the South Pacific. This strain is especially high in a particular kavalactone called Yangonin that is responsible for naturally boosting dopamine levels in the brain, leading to enhanced mental energy, focus, and motivation. KAVAPLEX MIND TM is great for working, studying, or socializing and makes a great adjunct to coffee for increasing overall mental clarity and productivity.  Shake well before using as some root constituents may have settled in the bottom of the bottle.

Frequently Asked Question


Kava is a plant based elixer (prepared of the roots of piper methysticum) that has been historically used by South Pacific islanders as a safe, natural alternative to drugs and alcohol, because it can bring about significant mood boosting, cognitive enhancing and anxiety relieving effects. Kava’s active compounds (known as kavalactones) naturally modulate key receptors in the brain, which gives them the ability to gently enhance the activity of the body’s main pleasure chemicals dopamine, serotonin, and GABA. This provides users with increased productivity and relaxation at the same time. It also allows users to loosen up and connect easier during social interaction. In the islands, kava is also known as a very gentle entheogen (psychedelic) that brings about creative and introspective thinking that makes users more empathetic over time. However, the main draw to Kava is that it provides these effects without any of the drunkenness that can impair fine motor skills and is completely non addictive. Connoisseurs describe the experience as a calm, enhanced state of natural sobriety.

Kava, A Safe Alternative To Drugs And Alcohol

Kava has been shown to be an excellent anti-craving agent for those suffering from drug addiction and dependency. Kavalactones in kava bind to the same receptors in the brain as many of these substances, except kava modulates them in a way that doesn’t create tolerance and dependency. In fact, it is well known by long term kava users that kava can produce what is called a “reverse tolerance” effect and you use less kava sas time goes on but still noticing the same effects.

This refers to instances where the more an individual uses kava overtime, the less of it they actually need to receive the same effects. The exact mechanisms and reasons for why this occurs are not yet completely understood. However it has been hypothesized that consistent kava use might actually increase ones natural GABA activity overtime by increasing the number of functional GABA receptors in the brain. This would mean that it could possibly assist in permanent rehabilitation of this system that may be impaired in many anxiety and mood disorders or damaged by long term substance abuse.


Kava is gaining mass popularity in the modern world as a safe natural antidepressant and powerful nootropic that can boost mood and cognitive function. It does this primarily by naturally boosting dopamine, which is the body’s main pleasure chemical that also plays a central role in mental focus, motivation, and memory recall. This makes it an excellent tool for studying, working and enhancing creativity. However, because of its additional relaxing effects that that come through activating both GABA and serotonin, kava brings about a happy, peaceful state of calm focus. This can be much different than the more jittery anxious focus that can come from using stimulants and many other nootropics. This calm focus is generally referred to as an Alpha state, which is known to be the optimal state of mind for accessing maximum creativity and one’s ability learn new information.


One of the most valuable and amazing aspects of kava is that it is able to provide amazing effects on the mind without being physiologically addictive at all. This has always been well known in the islands, but has also been shown consistently in published studies. Unlike other substances that affect the dopamine and serotonin pathways, kava is not habit forming and you will not build up a tolerance to the effects of kava, which would cause you to need to drink more each time. In fact, the exact opposite has been shown. Kava naturally props up dopamine levels without depleting or down regulating its function. This is due to kava’s natural chemical composition that makes it fully compatible with the human body.

A Keto Friendly Tool To Increase Fat Burning

Kava is also a powerful keto friendly tool for biohackers that reduces carbohydrate cravings, increases fat burning and provides stable energy levels throughout the day. One kavalactone in particular called Yangonin has been shown to significantly activate a pathway called AMPK (Adenosine monophosphate activated protein kinase) that increases cellular autophagy, a bodily process that involves converting stored body fat and old damaged cells (including cancerous cells) into usable energy as fuel. This can not only help to drastically reduce inflammation in the body, but it also assists in weight loss and mental clarity as well.

By activating this AMPK pathway, it appears that kava is able to help mimic the effects of fasting and calorie restriction, thus stimulating the body to burn fat as fuel (to boost energy) and helps to clear out unwanted tissues. This is one reason why kava is now gaining popularity as a profound keto adaptive agent that can help individuals get into ketosis while attempting a ketogenic diet and further enhance the diet once they are adapted.

The use of both coffee and MCT oil have both become extremely popular in recent years for their ability to jump start fat burning as well. However, the team at TRU KAVA has discovered that there is an incredibly synergistic effect between coffee, kava oil, and MCT oil that when combined drastically amplifies the effects of all three and seems to take fat burning, mental clarity and energy production to a whole new level.

Enhance Your Coffee With KAVAPLEX

Kava in and of itself is an excellent tool to use during fasting, intermittent fasting, and keto adaptation because of its ability to suppress appetite, lower cortisol and accelerate fat burning and autophagy. This makes it a phenomenal adjunct to coffee during fasting or intermittent fasting for several reasons. By lowering the cortisol spike that some get from drinking coffee you are also lowering the blood glucose spike that goes along with it. And by cranking up fat burning you are able to use body fat for fuel more quickly and stave off appetite for much longer. It also of course adds an extra mood and nootropic (mental clarity) kick to your coffee, while taking away the jitters that some get while drinking it. So it turns out that KAVAPLEX is a fantastic tool to take the overall effects of coffee and MCT to the next level, but also a great tool for those who like coffee but normally get side effects from it. And of course it’s a great alternative for those who don’t do well with coffee no matter what.

With our proprietary extraction methods we are able to extract using high pressure at very low temperatures, capturing the root’s full complex of active ingredients. This gives us a final product that is virtually indistinguishable from traditional kava in a palatable ready to use form for the modern world.

Kava Safety - Myths And Misconceptions

Anyone researching kava for the first time will most certainly find websites, blogs and articles that claim kava drinking is bad for the liver and your health. The origin of these claims is research that was done over 15 years ago in Switzerland and Germany that led to kava drinking being banned in those countries. And that ban was reversed in 2015 after a growing body of new research has invalidated these incomplete early research findings. This new research has shown that cases of liver toxicity attributed to kava actually occurred only in extremely rare instances when individuals consumed contaminated kava products (toxic above ground aerial parts of the plant), non-noble varieties or kava extracts that were denatured through solvent extraction. Also, most of these few cases of Liver toxicity occurred when these poor quality inedible kava parts were consumed in conjunction with other drugs and medications known to negatively affect liver function.

A recent World Health Organization risk assessment of kava products has stated that ”Kava has had at least a 1500-year history of safe use, with liver side effects never having arisen in the Ethnopharmacological data. Clinical trials of kava have not revealed hepatotoxicty as a problem. This has been confirmed by further studies evaluating the toxicology of the kava drink. Based on available scientific information it can be inferred that kava as a traditional beverage is safe for human consumption.” The indigenous peoples of most islands in the South Pacific have always seen traditional preparations of noble kava varieties as safe for daily consumption. In fact, the majority of people of Vanuatu, a South Pacific island, have been consuming them daily for over 3000 years.
