Where is Kawakawa found?
What are Kawakawa's benefits?
Anti-inflammatory: Kawakawa leaves contain myristicin – an active compound that stimulates cells to release nitric oxide. Cells release nitric oxide to help fight inflammation; myristicin boosts this effect.
Anti-inflammatories help soothe redness, pain, swelling and heat.
This can offer much-needed TLC to cracked, damaged, itchy and sore skin as well as painful joints and skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema, rosacea, acne and psoriasis.
Antimicrobial: Breaks in our skin like cuts, grazes, and burns are a one-way ticket for microbes to enter our bodies. Kawakawa contains compounds that naturally prevent the growth and spread of harmful microbes. As a result, it can help support the recovery of bacterial, viral and fungal infections, including acne, athlete’s foot, candidiasis (thrush), and ringworm.
