Press Release (ePRNews.com) - United States - Jun 18, 2017 - Kratom is a tropical deciduous tree, form Southeast Asia that is widely used throughout the region for medicinal purposes. Kratom has many morphine-like effects, but there are many additional benefits. There is no addictive quality of kratom leaves, which is very valuable given some of its long-term applications for human health.
Most of the health benefits of kratom leaves come from the distinctive chemical compounds and nutrients found within the leaves of the plant. This includes a wide range of alkaloids and other organic substances that affect many of the organ systems of the human body. Basically, kratom leaves are a substitute for opium, a highly addictive and dangerous drug, yet these leaves are seen as perfectly harmless.
Some interesting health benefits of kratom leaves include their ability to lower blood pressure, relieve pain, boost metabolism, increase sexual energy, improve the immune system, prevent diabetes, ease anxiety, help with addiction, eliminate stress, and induce healthy sleep.
One of the most obvious and widely known effects of kratom leaves is pain relief. By increasing the amount of serotonin and dopamine that is released into the body, pain can be alleviated. The alkaloids dull the pain receptors throughout the body. This morphine or opium-like quality of kratom leaves is widely regarded as its most important application.
Studies on the various alkaloids found in kratom have shown that the combined effects can have major effects on the strength and resilience of the immune system. This research is still being qualified and checked, but traditional and anecdotal beliefs about kratom leaves show that it can reduce the severity of illnesses or prevent illness altogether.
Kratom can increase your energy levels by optimizing certain metabolic processes and impacting hormone levels. This is a result of increased circulation, despite its soothing nature, and a general increase in oxygenated blood to areas of the body that needs it, combining with increased metabolic activities to provide a burst of energy.
As you might expect, any substance that is able to relieve pain and cause opium-like effects on the body will also likely have an impact on the mental stability and tone of a person. Kratom is widely used as anxiolytic substances for people who suffer from chronic stress, depression, anxiety, and mood swings. People can finally get relief from these exhausting symptoms of a chemical imbalance without having to rely on pharmaceuticals and all of the accompanying side effects of those drugs.
Kratom has been used as a method of curing addiction for hundreds of years. In many cultures, opium addiction is a major issue, but regularly chewing on kratom leaves provides a similar sensation without the comedowns and negative side effects. This also helps to cover withdrawal symptoms during the transition away from that more intense drug.
Studies have connected the use of kratom to a pronounced drop in blood pressure. As the chemical components impact the body’s hormones, they also reduce inflammation throughout the body, including in the blood vessels and arteries. By relieving that tension in the cardiovascular system, kratom is able to help prevent more serious heart conditions, such as atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes.
Provided that the recommended amount is used, there is no real danger from kratom. Some people do experience specific side effects, such as fatigue, nausea, and constipation. This typically happens the first or second time. Most people acclimate to the sensation. Other people claim a hangover-like effect, which includes headaches or nausea in the morning after use.
