I know this page needs a lot of work, but I think that the major kavalactones should have their own pages rather than a single page about all of them. Please add or change anything to improve it. Wikieditor12 (talk) 18:23, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
D,L- kavain has an effect on the amygdalar complex that appears to promote sleep, compared to placebo (holm 1991). EEG studies have demonstrated that D,L- kavain induces a dose-dependent increase in delta, theta, and alpha-1 brainwaves but a decrease in alpha-2, and beta brainwaves (frey 1991).
