Mitragyna Speciosa, more popularly known as Kratom, has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb. This powerful plant has a strong following in Southeast Asia but is slowly making its way around the world. Naturally for this to take place, there has to be a legitimate benefit from consuming the product. In this article we will list and discuss the impressive line of beneficial Kratom effects that can be received from this magical plant.
When consumed in small amounts, kratom can be a powerful stimulant – without the jitters. While some stimulants boost energy by increasing heart rate, that is not how kratom works. People who consume kratom typically experience an almost immediate increase in their physical and mental energy, similar to the effects of drinking coffee or tea.
In contrast to the stimulatory effects previously discussed, Kratom actually works as a relaxant when consumed in large doses. The way this works is similar to a sedative or anxiety reducing drug. The effect of the herb gives the consumer a more relaxed mood, and can also help reduce any feelings of nervousness or anxiety. Feeling more relaxed allows you to remove stressful thoughts and improve your level of focus and concentration.
Kratom is widely known for being a strong painkiller. This is primarily made possible through the alkaloids found in the plant, which bind at the m-opioid receptors in the human brain and spinal cord. This approach to pain relief is proven to be effective regardless of the type of pain, acute or chronic.
Along the lines of its stimulating properties, Kratom also has the ability to boost your mood and cognitive function. When taken in small doses, some users report a more optimistic mindset, helping their ability to remove negative thoughts and frustrations. When consumed in larger doses, Kratom creates a feeling of euphoria. These effects come from the alkaloid mitragynine, a common antidepressant found in the plant’s leaves.
Another traditionally used function, consuming Kratom is an effective way to prevent Opiate withdrawal symptoms. Since Kratom also attaches itself to the receptors that respond to Opium, it masks the effects of withdrawal, which allows the person to function properly, and prevents any potentially harmful effects of withdrawal symptoms. Kratom can be used for reducing use of Opiates or for kicking the habit all together. Since Kratom is not addictive, stopping use of it does not cause withdrawal.
Promoting Overall Wellness
In terms of overall health and wellness, Kratom contains powerful antioxidants that can reduce cellular aging and help prevent some types of cancer. Kratom also has the natural ability to improve cardiovascular health by lowering blood pressure. In addition, Kratom is helpful in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels by imitating the effects of insulin in the body. This incredible plant even has antiviral and antibacterial properties that help strengthen your immune system.
A Few Notes
While this list alone makes Kratom look like a wonderful natural drug, research is taking place now to reveal any other potential health benefits remaining, and it surely looks promising. In addition to all of the specific uses listed above, effects of Kratom can improve the overall health and wellness of any individual.
