    Does anyone else have the side-effect from Kava that you, pretty quickly after consuming, have to visit the bathroom?

    While it's not EVERY time, I find that it's pretty regular-ly.

    Yeeep. I think this happens especially with long term kava drinkers. I'm not sure if it's an actual effect of kava, or just a habit that forms. Either way, yes.

    Yup - not sure if it is the kava or just drinking that much liquid gets the gut moving.

    OTOH in almost thre years now I have never had that happen once. Could be just ymmv for various people. I just had my first kava fart today, so I'm not giving up hope.

    lol, as if kava would do anything possibly negative for you :)

    KrunkyMcKrunkface was made for kava.

    Ha! Yeah, man... from what I've gathered in my (somewhat) limited time here, Krunkie and Kava go together like sweet and iced tea.

    Kavashua Mmmm Kava

    In 15 years of working at my job I never once had to use the facilities in the building until I started drinking kava. It became a normal thing for me until I stopped drinking recently ( financial reasons) but I’m sure once I start again I’ll be back in there

    Just the opposite for me. I have to up my magnesium intake when I'm shelling consistently

    If the context is right, Namba two always follows Nambawan

    Yeah definitely. I like to drink a little kava before heading out and about and I have multiple times had to make an emergency stop or even turn around and go home to go to the bathroom.. when kava makes you have to go it makes you HAVE to GO.

    Yes- Nambawan hits me in the guts pretty hard. Although it hits me pretty hard all over.. I have to be very very careful with Namba...
    I got Lapita from Kavafied on Amazon and it had the same bowel-shattering effect on me that Namba does.

    Every. Single. Time. Guaranteed, within about half an hour.

    I think it's the excitement and anticipation that come with the initial onset of effects that does it
    more than the beverage itself.

    I make sure I know where my ipad is before my first shell. Wouldn't want to have Nambatwo without it and have to read shampoo bottles for entertainment.o_O

    There have been times while I’m still mixing a bowl and my B’s suddenly need to have an M. Like my body already knows what’s about to happen and just wants to get it out of the way.

    Actually yeah I like this though. A clean colon is always good. Since my intake of kava my health has improved in that area.

    Not to be disgusting or anything but I suffer from a very rough condition called rectal prolapse and kava has actually helped stop that completely. I'm not trying to make any medical claims here but I've only changed one thing in my life and its kava.

    Edit: not suffering anymore :)
