Finding motivation can be tough. Sometimes it may even seem impossible but taking care of your mental and physical health is very important in having a long healthy life. Kratom is an all natural product that can help relieve pain and improve your health. There are many strains such as Green Maeng Da and White Maeng Da and each has benefits that help with specific stressors or pains. We will go over all the information that you need to know about kratom and why kratom might be the solution to your problem.
What do we know about kratom? Kratom is a tropical evergreen tree that is native to countries in Southeast Asia such as Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Kratom, also known as Mitragyna speciosa, produces leaves that can be crushed into a fine powder, smoked or eaten raw. These leaves are used primarily as a recreational or medicinal treatment for mental illnesses.
People use kratom as a stimulant to enhance their mood, positively change their neurology, and use it to battle fatigue during the day. For people who have long work weeks and want to stop drinking 4 cups of coffee a day, this may be the answer you were looking for.
Kratom, depending on the strain you pick, increases your energy using properties that are naturally produced within the plant. Because it gives you a burst of energy, it also has mood boosting qualities that help people who experience depression and anxiety. Some behavioral therapy practices recommend kratom as an all natural alternative instead of taking pharmaceutical pills that may contain dire side effects.
Let’s dive in a little deeper and begin to analyze the compounds within kratom that make kratom what it is today. The two main compounds that are reacting within the kratom leaves are mitragynine and 7-a-hydroxymitragynine. These compounds interact with the opioid receptors in the brain to produce a wide variety of effects.
The most common effects that kratom produces is pleasure, sedation, tranquility, euphoria, and a sensation of decreased pain. Mitragynine also binds with other receptors in the brain to produce stimulant effects that can keep the person vigilant and aware for the majority of the day. Also, it is known that mitragynine acts as an opioid stimulant such as codeine or morphine that helps relieve pain throughout the body. These effects can happen immediately or can happen gradually depending on how much kratom is taken and how the kratom was taken.
Now that we have gone over some of the effects and compounds, let’s go over the possible side effects of kratom. There is a wide range of side effects of kratom but the most frequently reported have been nausea, sweating, lack of hunger, fidgeting, and dizziness. To minimize the risk of side effects, consult with your vendor or research the internet to find the right recommendation.
Some more side effects of kratom over a long period of time are kratom withdrawal and liver damage (if abusing the recommended dosage). These specific side effects only happen if the person does not follow the recommendations of the doctor or vendor.
If too much kratom is taken at once, it can be unsafe for the person and they might overdose. Overdoses are not common and they do not happen frequently but like any food, medication, or recreational substance, everything must be taken in moderation. Too much can lead to negative results and possible damage to your body.
It is very common that people take a little more than their recommended dosage and they begin to feel some side effects. Taking too much kratom can cause a mild headache and nausea that can be cured by eating or drinking a lot of water. These side effects are not permanent and go away after an hour or two. I would like to repeat that these are very common symptoms if you have taken too much especially for someone who is new to taking kratom.
So what are the benefits of kratom? Kratom has been used to treat people who are suffering from mental and physical illnesses. Specifically, depression and anxiety. Anxiety is described as a mental illness or disorder that leads to excessive nervousness, fear, apprehension, or worry of things to come.
Kratom has helped people conquer their social anxiety issues. Because of the active compounds kratom naturally produces, it gives the person the confidence to go out and face the world. Majority of the kratom strains uplift the person’s mood and relax them in social situations the person couldn’t do before. Kratom and social anxiety are a match made in heaven.
A couple years ago, I had severe social anxiety. I had issues leaving my apartment and even talking to my friends because I thought they would think I was acting weird. In reality, it was all in my head and I tried so many things just to calm my nerves before opening my front door. I am happy that I found a product like kratom because it helps me relax and feel more comfortable in my own skin.
Kratom is available everywhere and it is not difficult to find kratom for sale. There are a wide variety of products and it is important to find the strain that would benefit your lifestyle the most. Kratom has helped me tremendously and I hope that it can positively impact you as well.
