Health Benefits of Kratom
Let’s take a closer look at some of the fascinating health benefits of kratom leaves.
Kratom leaves are rich in analgesic properties and can quickly relieve pain throughout the body by impacting the hormonal system. The amount of serotonin and dopamine released into the body increases when the leaves are chewed. This further alleviates the pain. Essentially, 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.
Immune System Booster
Independent studies on the various alkaloids found in kratom leaves have shown that the combinative effects can have major effects on the strength and resilience of the immune system. Kratom leaf extracts, which were traditionally used as herbs, are endowed with free radical scavenging and antimicrobial activity and are a natural source of antioxidants.
The metabolic effects that kratom has are one of the other reasons that the leaves are so popular, particularly with laborers in various countries. It may increase 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. For sufferers of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, kratom leaves are often an alternative, natural solution.
Kratom is seen by many traditional practitioners and users as an aphrodisiac and a fertility booster. The extra energy and blood flow may help increase fertility, re-energize a tired libido, and improve duration/conception rates according to some preliminary animal studies.
