WORK TIMEMON – FRI: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM CST
Many types of kratom and humans have had a relationship going back thousands of years, but it’s the last couple of decades that it has become known to western cultures. These all-natural herbal powders are derived from the leaves of the Mitragyna Speciosa tree from Southeast Asia. The kratom tree is an evergreen and a member of the coffee family that mostly grows in the friendly, tropical conditions of Indonesia where it can reach 80 feet tall. Traditional indigenous kratom tea users in Southeast Asia will chew kratom leaves or brew the leaves into kratom tea. Western users on the other hand are much more likely to use capsules or powdered product that can be mixed into a beverage. There are different types of Kratom powders that can be ordered online or physical store, used for all kinds of reasons, but most of them have to do with the naturally occurring alkaloids found within the leaves.
The many differences in growing conditions and harvesting techniques all affect the chemical compounds we find in kratom powders. It is probably these differences in chemical compositions that account for the different experiences one may have with one particular product vs another one made using different leaves.
Kratom has a somewhat controversial status as a supplement in the United States. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned about its use in the past and expressed caution over salmonella contamination. But still, kratom tea users are growing in number and the American Kratom Association estimates over 15 million Americans are using kratom every day.
[And remember, as with any natural supplement, don’t begin using it without consulting a healthcare professional about potential health risks and prescription drug interactions.]
