What is Kratom & What Are its Benefits?

Welcome to Kratom Depot! If you’re on this article – you’re probably wondering what kratom is, and how it can help you with your ailments. Well, you’re in the right place! We are your source for Kratom knowledge and for kratom products (two birds with one stone am I right?)

So, sit back, relax and let us explain to you what Kratom is, and its benefits.

So, what is Kratom?

Mitragyna speciosa. Maeng Da Leaf. Mambog, Kedemba, Katawn – these are the many names that Kratom is known by around the world.

Kratom is a tropical, evergreen tree found in Southeast Asia. Amongst other things, kratom is within the coffee family. It has been used as herbal medicine since the nineteenth century – and has been known to have some stimulant-like effects. In the culture where this plant grows (Thailand, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea) Kratom has been used for traditional medicine. The leaves are extracted from the plant and is chewed to relieve musculoskeletal pain, while increasing energy, appetite, and sexual desire in some cases.

It can even be used as a local anesthetic – and has been known to treat intestinal infections. Within these countries and cultures, the kratom leaf is a miracle worker, as it enhances mood and dulls pain. It is a custom in Thailand to use it as a snack for guests, as a form of ritual worship of ancestors and gods.

So, what are the real benefits of using Kratom?

According to researchers – here are the top five benefits of using kratom within your daily diet.

1. Pain Relief

The biggest reason why many around the world use Kratom is to help with their ongoing injuries or nagging pains they have throughout the day. Kratom leaves (and capsules with pure kratom) is useful for pain relief purposes within your muscles. It relieves pain by binding onto your pain receptors located on your central nervous system. For many alternative medicine takers – its pain relief is akin to CBD. If you’re in need of a specific strain of kratom to mainly target pain – we recommend using our Bali/Red Vein strain of Kratom. The red kratom strain is commonly used for pain and relaxation – and it also packs an extra punch when dealing with soreness.

2. Anxiety Relief / Mood Enhancement

Users of Kratom have said that they have felt a sense of euphoria when they ingested Kratom, as well as having their anxiety reduced. Mitragynine (the chemical found in kratom) binds itself to neurological pathways in your brain, which are responsible for mood regulation. Due to this, you feel less anxiety and you have a better, more positive outlook throughout your day. It’s one of the best alternatives to anti-anxiety medication, and the red kratom strain specializes in anxiety relief/ mood enhancement.

3. A Boost In Energy

Being within the coffee tree family, it wouldn’t be that big of a surprise that Kratom can help boost your energy levels right? Kratom has a tremendous effect on your metabolism and induces your body’s metabolic processes in order to create more energy. Alongside this increase in your metabolic process, kratom also helps with blood circulation. The more blood that is circulated within your body – the more oxygen can be sent to your organs and muscle tissue. With this – you will have an all-natural way to increase your energy, without the side effects of crashing compared to energy drinks and coffee. Green kratom is known for providing long-lasting energy while keeping your mind and body balanced and not overly jittery.

4. Improvement in Mental Focus

One of the lesser-known aspects of Kratom is its ability to release acetylcholine within your brain. Acetylcholine is the main neurotransmitter that enhances focus and attention. According to research, acetylcholine increases the ability of your cortical circuits (basically the wiring that works with your hand-eye coordination) with reactions to sensory stimuli. In essence, when you watch, read, or write – it will help your mind ingrain the things you learn with an easier transition, while also increasing your attention span. If you’re looking for the biggest boost for your cognitive functions and mental focus – we highly recommend our White Maeng Da Kratom. It’s the most potent of all of our white Kratom strains, and it’ll give you the best mental focus in comparison to the red and green strains.

5. Recovery from Addiction

If you’re looking to recover from a long-term opioid addiction – kratom is the best alternative medicine for you. Kratom is a partial opioid agonist – which means that it will provide a similar sensation in comparison to opioid drugs (according to your brain) but will not have the harsh comedowns/withdrawals that come with abusing prescribed opioid medication. Kratom does not induce long-term dependency as well – which is great if you’re looking to wean yourself from prescribed opiates. If you’re looking for an all-natural alternative to pain relief, while weening yourself from your prescribed medication, our green kratom strains will be your best bet.

In conclusion…

Kratom is a wonderful all-natural remedy, and it can help with a variety of ailments. If you’re looking for an alternative medicine that can help reduce your stress, pain, anxiety but will also help you with mental cognition and focus – Kratom is just the thing for you.

Many people around the world love using Kratom for its medicinal properties – and you should do the same.

Take a look around our shop and see what strains of Kratom are suited for you or for someone you care about. We only offer the highest-rated strains for potency and purity, nothing more, and nothing less. That’s the Kratom Depot guarantee.
