Have You Heard of The Miracle Plant Called Kratom?

Have You Heard of The Miracle Plant Called Kratom?

What if we told you that there is a plant, native to the countries of Southeast Asia, that is used to cure opioid addiction, relieve depression, improve insomnia, reduce pain and boost your brain power? This plant really exists and it goes by the name of: Kratom.

For thousands of years, the Eastern world has known about Kratom and has been using this plant to reap its therapeutic benefits. The Western world is quickly catching on and you can now find Kratom sold in various health stores and other 'alternative shops'. Kratom comes in powders, teas, capsules and even vapes!

In short, these are the main miraculous health benefits of Kratom (we will elaborate on each further down):

  1. Mood enhancer
  2. Immune booster
  3. Brain booster
  4. Pain reliever
  5. Stimulant
  6. Sedative (for insomnia)
  7. Libido enhancer

Mentioned above are the top 7 (but not the only) health benefits of Kratom.

Mood enhancer

The mood enhancing effects of Kratom can help those who suffer from depression, mood swings, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias (fears) and even low self-esteem. Say goodbye to prescription mood stabilisers and hello to Kratom!

Kratom gives you a sense of wellbeing, confidence and optimism! Taking a Kratom supplement daily will help you maintain a happy and healthy mindset, while pushing away your mental struggles. Before you know it, you will be an energetic, alert ray of sunshine!

Immune-booster

Many studies suggest that kratom can give our immune system a helping hand. Kratom contains various alkaloids such as mitraphylline, isomitraphylline, and isorhynchophylline, which are considered immunostimulants, meaning that they stimulate immune functioning by activating it or increasing its activity. Scientists have noted that Kratom not only enhances immunity against viruses and bacteria, but aids tissue and cell repair, making healing time that much more faster!

Brain booster

Kratom is considered a 'nootropic' in the medical field. Nootropics are drugs, supplements and other substances that are claimed to improve cognitive function including memory, focus, motivation and the ability cope under pressure. Researchers believe that Kratom boosts your brain power by improving the capacity of cortical circuitry to react when sensory inputs stimulate them.

Pain reliever

Kratom has shown to aid painful conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, chronic backache, rheumatoid arthritis, osteomalacia and nerve/muscle damage. It works by suppressing the signals of pain being sent to the brain by affecting the opiate receptors of the nervous system. This in turn, ultimately nullifies pain. It has been shown to maintain pain-relieving effects for about 5 hours long! 

Stimulant

The stimulating properties of Kratom might excite those who suffer from fatigue, lethargy and feelings of low motivation. Not only does the stimulating effect have a positive influence on physical energy levels, it also has an uplifting and stimulating effect on mental health! So whether you need to improve your physical endurance or you have an exam coming up, Kratom can help you work tirelessly and more efficiently.

What's great about Kratom as a stimulant is that it doesn't give you the shakes, anxiety or heart palpitation, which are common side effects of other stimulants.

Sedative

You know how we just said that Kratom is used as a stimulant to keep energy levels up? Well, at higher doses, Kratom acts as a sedative and can help achieve a person in sleep, even those who struggle with insomnia. Kratom can also help people fall asleep faster and get into a deeper sleep. Additionally, because of Kratom's mood enhancing effects, it can also help those who suffer from night terrors or nightmares caused by emotional upsets.

Libido enhancer

One of the most interest benefits of Kratom is its ability to increase one's sex drive and improve their sexual performance! Kratom can help men boost their sexual endurance, and also assist men who struggle with erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. It's a great and safe alternative to other male libido enhancers, as it improves blood circulation without harming the heart. 

Kratom is not only for men's pleasure! It also encourages women to lead a healthier and vibrant sex life. This is achieved because not only is Kratom a stimulant, it also helps one to relax and let go of fears or insecurities, allowing one to enjoy the present moment more.

Note: taking too high dosages of Kratom could have the opposite effect and could actually create issues such as low libido and premature ejaculation. 

How to take Kratom

Kratom comes in various forms: powder, tea, capsules and even in blends mixed with other therapeutic ingredients. Most people find the natural flavour of Kratom quite bitter, so capsule form or in a blend is often preferred. The amount you take depends on the reason why you are taking it.

Feelgood Health makes it easy for one to take a balanced and safe dose of Kratom:

  • Euphoria (90 Veg Capsules) contains Kratom at the dosage which is beneficial for those wanting to restore the mind and body balance when feeling stressed, anxious and emotionally drained.
  • Release Superfood (180 Veg Capsules) contains Kratom at the dosage which is beneficial for those wanting to restore peace, calm and well being.

Lower doses provide stimulating and mood enhancing effects while higher doses provide sedative and pain relieving effects. As this is a potent plant food, precautions should be taken. People react to the effects of potent plants differently. Start with a small serving size to test the effects, and then increase slowly as required. Usage on pack is intended as a guideline.

Taking a larger than recommended amount may result in unwanted effects. If any unwanted effects such as nausea occur, reduce the amount taken. If unwanted effects continue, discontinue use. Results may vary from person to person. Do not drive/operate machinery unless well acquainted with the effects. We advise consulting your health care provider if you are taking any medication, pregnant or breast feeding. Keep out of reach of children.

Precautions

Kratom may reduce the effectiveness of certain pharmaceutical medication. Please consult with your health care provider before using Kratom if you are on medication.
