Kratom is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family (Rubiaceae) native to Southeast Asia.
For centuries, kratom was used throughout Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. It was traditionally used to help with pain and energy by those doing strenuous labor. Kratom was used as a local anesthetic to help with coughs and with intestinal issues like diarrhea. People would chew on kratom leaves and spit out the leaf after a few moments. Another popular way to enjoy kratom is to brew some leaves in hot water to make a kratom herbal tea. This would be particularly popular in the morning before work and in the evening during a meal with friends and family.
There are over 40 naturally-occurring alkaloids in kratom. Some of these alkaloids like mitragynine, mitraphylline, and rhynchophylline, are researched for their ability to be vasodilators. Vasodilation is the widening of blood vessels to allow better blood and oxygen flow. And in fact, this is what gives people the ‘clean energy’ boost. Better flow can translate to better energy so you can start the day off right and keep it going. If you want to naturally alleviate fatigue and naturally support elevated energy levels†, give our Maeng Da Premium Kratom a try, since our ETHA Labs use only those harvests with the higher naturally occurring concentrations of vasodilator alkaloids to make this blend.
KRATOM AND PAIN
Pain manifests in many different forms such as, physical pain, nerve pain, muscle tightness and even mental and emotional pain. A study from 2017 shed some light on kratom’s immunity-enhancing and anti-inflammatory effects. Many kratom users would swear that this herbal supplement helps them rid of years old pains and aches. Nevertheless, it is very important to understand that kratom alone does not and will not cure, fix or permanently make pain go away (***Be weary of any vendor that makes those promises). A regimen that may include exercise, clean diet, plenty of rest, a good social network of loved ones, and supplements is a holistic well-rounded approach to pain management. Kratom may however, serve as a great addition to a comprehensive pain management plan. Kratom may temporarily alleviate pain, restore natural energy levels and motivation, and support rest, allowing you to get the other parts of a well-rounded plan in motion.
ETHA SunRise Kratom may prove a great tool if you need support for your occasional pain and also want help restoring natural energy levels.
KRATOM AND SLEEP
Sleep-related problems affect roughly 70 million Americans of all ages. Insomnia is the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep at night, and is a serious health issue that affects a large number of people. Two of the most common causes for insomnia are: anxiety (inability to relax) and stress. Another of the benefits of kratom may is presence of alkaloids to promote relaxation and naturally alleviate stress. ETHA Labs will test its harvests specifically for kratom alkaloids like speciogynine and paynantheine, which support response to inflammation, temporarily relieve muscle fatigue from overuse, and promote relaxation. When you take our SunSet blend before bed, it may help you to fall asleep faster.
Once asleep you want to stay asleep. Something unique and only ETHA offers: kratom +GABA or MidNight Dream. The neurotransmitter inhibitors in GABA quiet the mind, while speciogynine and paynantheine alkaloids in kratom support muscle relaxation†. And as such, MidNight Dream aims to promote deep, slow-wave sleep†.
Benefit of Kratom: The ETHA Difference
The above benefits of kratom are just a few and there are many others as well. However, one thing to always keep in mind. If the product itself is poor quality or mixed with other substances, any potential benefit derived are negated. According to reports by U.S. poison control hotlines, calls involving kratom overdoses rose 50-fold from 2011 to 2016. While on its face this statistic is alarming, it further supports our prior statement of the importance of purchasing quality kratom from a reputable manufacturer. In most cases, the kratom (causing the poison control calls) was laced with other drugs. To highlight again, this is where quality of manufacturer and vendor is vital and plays a key role.
