Garlic in Garlic
may interact with Kava-Kava in Tonga
The use of kava is discouraged due to serious side effects that it may cause. The amounts of garlic ordinarily used in cooking are not thought to affect blood clotting very much. However, both kava and garlic contain chemicals that may reduce the blood's ability to form clots. When large, continuing amounts of garlic are taken together with kava, the risk of dangerous bleeding may increase. Kava should not be used -- especially with garlic.
