Q. Can Kava cause liver damage?

A. Many years ago a report of some liver health concerns that connected this to kava was published. This led to a ban in some countries. Subsequent studies have shown that traditional kava consumption is safe, leading to the ban being lifted in most countries which previously banned it. The best litmus test is that the people of the South Pacific have been drinking kava for hundreds of years and to date there is no evidence that these countries have higher than average liver problems.
