Kratom health benefits are many, but mood boosting is one of the strongest.  Because of this, it has been used to temporarily fight off high levels of anxiety, fatigue, panic attacks and depressive symptoms.  Kratom has also been used as a sedative, and for lowering blood pressure.

Kratom health benefits include the use as an opium substitute.  The reason its drawn attention as an opium substitute is because natives in Thailand and Asian countries would use it as an opium substitute when opium wasn’t available.  The Kratom Leaves are known to contain alkaloids that interact with the body’s opiate receptors in a similar fashion to endorphins and opium.  However, it is not an opioid and does not put users at risk for opiate-related illnesses.

Kratom contains epicatechin, an anti-oxidant. It also includes alkaloids that are said to have positive effects on a person’s immune system.  While no highly controlled studies have been done on this plant’s ability to boost the immune system, there are a vast amount of anecdotal reports from users about the power this plant has to reduce sickness duration as well as avoid sickness entirely.

One primary kratom health benefit is that it has been shown to be very effective at increasing energy levels.  This is one of the main reasons it is heavily used by people that are involved in manual labor.  However, it should be noted that kratom benefits vary by strain, and not all can effectively be used for this purpose.

The main active ingredient in kratom is mitragynine, and it is known to affect a person’s mood and anxiety levels, thus acting as an anti-depressant.  The same ingredient is also known to alleviate pain, and migraine headaches. There are also reports of people with hay fever getting well after kratom use.  Many people also claim that using kratom helped them get better from a number of different illnesses, and appears to have various medicinal uses.

kratom uses

Kratom is ingested either by chewing, drinking (grinding the leaves into tea powder or mixing with coffee) and smoking.  Although kratom in low doses is not known to interfere with a person’s daily activities, kratom users are advised to not perform any action that requires their full attention, such as driving or handling heavy machinery.

Although the effects of Kratom ingestion are comparable to that of Coffee in mildness, kratom can produce nausea at mild levels.  Kratom should not be consumed by people under the age of 18, on the same grounds that coffee should not be consumed by children.  Consuming large amounts of Kratom can be dangerous, as can large amounts of coffee.  Mixing Kratom with other substances is also not advised due to adverse effects.

Kratom users around the world live in constant fear of their medicine being outlawed by politicians seeking to demonize another herbal medicine.  Politicians do this because it makes them appear to be doing their job, protecting the people from another “dangerous plant”.  In reality, Kratom is totally safe when used in moderation and politicians rely on propaganda and false information to get their laws passed.
