Can Kratom Help in Diabetes?
It’s important to note that research on kratom’s effectiveness at managing diabetes is still ongoing. However, the herb’s analgesic and anti-anxiety properties are in the public domain.
Kratom, scientifically known as Mitragyna speciosa, refers to a tropical evergreen tree that belongs to the coffee family. It’s used to treat a wide range of medical conditions. Kratom is indigenous to various countries in Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, and Myanmar.
While Kratom’s popularity in the West peaked around the dawn of the 21st century, the herb has been used from time immemorial as traditional medicine, mostly in Asian countries. As a medicinal herb, kratom is mostly prescribed for pain relief, where studies have shown that it’s most effective with nociceptive pains. The herb is also used to relieve insomnia, modulate moods, as well as treat various anxiety disorders.
