  • What is kava?

Kava, derived from the roots of the Piper methysticum plant indigenous to the Pacific Islands, is a non-alcoholic beverage deeply embedded in the culture and traditions of the Pacific Islander communities. 

The active components come directly from the plant's root, which is meticulously harvested and processed to create the drink. 

Historically, kava has played a significant role in ceremonies, negotiations, and social events, acting as a bridge to connect individuals and communities. 

Beyond its cultural significance, the beverage is cherished for its calming and sociable effects. As such, kava has been celebrated for centuries, not just as a drink but as an experience that fosters relaxation and communal bonding.

What is Kava? Understanding the Roots of Relaxation

  • What is Melo and what makes it unique?

Melo sets itself apart in the kava beverage arena through its commitment to quality and taste. 

We utilize a superior extraction process, ensuring the potency and purity of our kava. Our direct connections with the farms where we source our kava grants us unparalleled quality control. 

But it's not just about purity; Melo has been expertly crafted to be palatable, making it a delightful contrast to many other kava drinks that can be challenging to consume. 

Not only does Melo taste exceptional, but it also boasts a health-conscious profile: sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan, and with zero calories.

  • What does kava do? How will it make me feel?

Kava offers a unique experience distinct from that of alcohol. While both can induce relaxation, kava doesn't inebriate or cloud the conscious mind as alcohol might. 

Instead, its effects can be likened to a muscle relaxant. Upon consumption, individuals often feel a soothing calm that washes over their body, bringing about feelings of relaxation, contentment, and in some cases, a gentle euphoria. 

This serene state is frequently paired with a distinctive numbing sensation in the mouth. A deep sense of peace and diminished anxiety are common responses. 

However, it's important to note that reactions can differ depending on one's personal sensitivity and circumstances when consuming it.

  • How long until I experience the Melo sensation?

The Melo sensation affects everyone differently, but typically, one can anticipate feeling a sensation within 5-20 minutes.

  • How do I drink Melo?

Social Gatherings: Kava has become a popular alternative to alcoholic beverages during social gatherings. Its calming properties make it ideal for deep conversations, relaxed get-togethers, or simply enjoying time with friends without the hangover that might come the next day.

Relaxation at Home: Kava is increasingly becoming a choice for those who want a serene evening at home. Whether you're unwinding after a long day, reading a book, or watching a movie, kava can set the right mood, allowing for deeper relaxation.

Enhancing Wellness Activities: The tranquility that kava induces aligns well with wellness practices such as yoga, meditation, or even spa sessions. Its muscle-relaxing properties can help deepen stretches, enhance mindfulness, and complement relaxation techniques.

Evening Wind-down: For those seeking to transition into a peaceful sleep, kava can be an ally. Consumed in the evenings, it can assist in alleviating the stresses of the day and set the stage for a restful night.

  • Is kava safe for me to consume?

For those delving into the world of kava for the first time, it's not uncommon to stumble upon discussions suggesting potential dangers linked to kava consumption. 

Historically, these concerns stem from studies conducted several decades ago in Switzerland and Germany, resulting in kava bans across numerous European nations. 

However, recent investigations have shed new light on these initial findings. Closer examinations revealed that the reported liver issues, previously linked to kava, were due to participants ingesting harmful drugs alongside kava, and critically, consuming parts of the kava plant known to be harmful and not typically used for human consumption. These revelations led to the reversal of the kava ban in Germany in 2006, with several other countries following suit. 

As cited by the National Library of Medicine, the likelihood of kava causing clinically significant liver damage is fewer than "1 in 1,000,000 daily doses", an extremely low risk. This is further corroborated by over a millennium of kava drinking in the Pacific Islands, with no documented instances of liver-related complications. 

As with any substance, moderation is key. We always encourage our consumers to be conscious of their unique sensitivities and to stay informed about any potential interactions with other consumables or medications. Do not consume more than the recommended daily amount listed on the can and packaging.

Discovering a New Path: The Inception of Melo

Life has a funny way of pushing us into cycles. For us, it was a dance between health kicks and weekends lost to the allure of alcohol. It's no secret that our society has a deep-rooted relationship with drinking. Celebrations, commiserations, stress-relievers, or just casual hangouts - alcohol always seemed to be the guest of honor. But there came a moment when I realized I wanted out of this repetitive loop. As a young, social individual, I yearned for something that would help me relax, make me feel included in gatherings, and most importantly, reconnect with my true self.

Commitment to Excellence: The Melo Promise

Quality was paramount. If we were diving into this, every drop of Melo had to be the epitome of excellence. We journeyed to Vanuatu, the world's kava capital, ensuring that the root of our product was the best. But it wasn't just about the kava. It was about aligning with partners who shared the vision, ethos, and passion for the product. 

We collaborated with a farm in Vanuatu that practiced sustainable farming, resonating with both our personal values and Melo's emerging ethos. Our team grew, including a food scientist with four decades of kava experience and a manufacturer who genuinely believed in Melo's potential. Our warehouse solution and strategic partners were carefully chosen, ensuring alignment with our overarching goals and vision.

Creating Melo wasn't just about introducing a product; it was about crafting an experience. An experience of superior quality, authenticity, and a promise of genuine relaxation.

With a team that believes in Melo's potential and the expertise to propel us forward, we're not just creating a beverage; we're pioneering a movement. Join us on this exhilarating journey.
