During recent years, the western world has found the immense therapeutic and medicinal properties of Kratom. The herb has been contemplated for use as a painkiller and as a supplement for those who seek its sedative effects.It has grown in popularity as a substitute for sedative drugs, which are the most widely recognized solutions for pain relief.
While pain may be of different types, the mechanism of action of the body in response to pain is usually the same. The body perceives pain from damaged tissues or other injuries via the affected nerves, which transmit messages up the spine to the central nervous system and brain (cerebrum).
The CNS brings about a variety of neuronal responses. One of these responses is the production of endorphins, which are a group of hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system.
They are endogenous opioid neuropeptides or peptides which activate the body’s opiate receptors (mu, delta, and kappa) that help reduce the perception of pain and bring about analgesic effects.
Kratom contains a potent blend of synergistic alkaloids that function in a way similar to the body’s natural endorphins. The two main alkaloids in Kratom, 7-hydroxymitragynine, and mitragynine, attach to mu and delta opioid receptors in the brain, contributing to the plant’s high therapeutic index, including its analgesic and sedative properties.
Kratom is, therefore, very effective in treating all types of pain, whether it is mild, moderate or severe, acute or chronic, and whether an injury or inflammation cause it.
