“Bula” is a functional relaxation drink. Bula’s Pomegranate berry flavor is just what you need to enjoy a calming beverage from the South Pacific. Using hints of Kava root, Valerian root, Rose Hip, and B Vitamins Bula is the perfect blend to help ease life’s tensions.
Bula is more then just a relaxing drink, Bula is a lifestyle. A relaxed lifestyle. Some of life’s best decisions are made when we reacts with relaxed instinct. “Professional athletes attest to this concept often” says Bula creator and professional football player Sione Po’uha. When relaxed and your mind is level, you’ll be able to see life with a clearer perspective…a Bula perspective.
Kava is used by the modern world as an anti-depressant, stress reliever and muscle relaxant. The effects are similar to Valerian root in that they help with similar symptoms. We chose Kava as our main relaxation ingrediant because it has also been used in our culture for thousands of years and we are excited to be able to represent the kava culture with Bula. Kava and Bula come from the roots of the South Pacific.
Hawaiians used Kava as an asthma remedy, Fijians drank kava as a nightly ritual to eases the day’s anxieties. Kava kava is largely used as a celebratory drink in the South Pacific. Kava is still used today to mark celebratory events such as weddings, public festivals, and holidays, and it is even used in ceremonies honoring the dead. Unlike alcohol, kava does not produce or stimulate aggression, and it does not condemn the user to the dreaded hangover.

Valerian roots help with insomnia, nervous tension, anxiety, hysteria, excitability, stress and cramps. Valerian has an effect that is calming but doesn’t cause sleepiness the following day.
Bula’s savoring pomegranate berry flavor was selected from 200 flavors as part of a rigorous taste test. This included selected bartenders, public figures, night club and relaxation-related business owners, as well as the public. Not only does Bula capture the relaxation components of Kava, it also brings in a new, refreshing, and enjoyable taste. At first sip some of you familiar with kava might notice the peppery Kava undertones. We are very pleased with the flavor of Bula and how we’ve created a quality tasting beverage and functionally fused the Bula taste with the relaxation properties of Kava and Valerian roots.
