Kava Kava and Sex Drive
Answered by: Conrad Richter

Question on Kava Kava: is this the plant root which increases the sex drive and is banned by the Canadian agency because it damages the liver?

Kava kava is not specifically taken to boost the sex drive. It has a reputation for treating anxiety, panic attacks and general nervousness. But because sexual interest is often affected by anxiety, kava kava can have an indirect but positive effect on the libido without directly affecting blood flow to the genitalia or testosterone levels.
