Kratom has many beneficial properties, perhaps most notably is the pain alleviating properties.
Having any type of pain can hinder you from living a fulfilled and happy life. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical products given for chronic pain have opiates, which can cause dependence and other various side effects.
Mitragyna speciosa (Kratom) has become the alternative for pharmaceutical products that are not only costly but harmful. Kratom contains a strong blend of synergistic alkaloids which contribute to its high therapeutic index and make it free from the almost all of the side effects that plague traditional medications.
Alkaloids found in Kratom, especially 7-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine , mimic endorphin's released by the body in order to reduce the perception of pain. These endorphins attach to mu, delta and kappa opiod receptors, which result in the much needed relief. Red vein Kratom tends to be overall better for pain relief than other strains.
