Kratom As A Mood-Enhancing Herb – What To Expect
We’ve all had those days when there’s a lingering sense of sadness and doom. It’s hard to tell the reason behind that feeling, but ignoring it for a long time can take a toll on your sense of being and quality of life.
It’s not uncommon for people to turn to the good old cup of Joe to get a nice boost in energy. It often works too. But, today people are looking for more potent ways than just coffee to brighten up their day.
To that end, many of them kratom powder and herbal preparations made from it.
What is Kratom?
This is a tropical plant growing in Southeast Asia where the natives would use it for a boost in energy and occasionally for relief from pain. However, the latter usage of kratom is not very pronounced as studies are still ongoing to establish its true effectiveness in pain management.
The leaves of this tree are dried, crushed, and turned into powder, capsules, and extracts. While some people like to go with the old ‘toss and wash’ method, others like to be more sophisticated. Many prefer consuming it in the form of tea. The choice is all yours.
Taking Kratom as a ‘Happy-Making Pill’
To avoid any confusion, it’s important to establish not to treat kratom as a ‘euphoria-inducing’ herb. While there are some people who have experienced the occasional ‘high’ but it’s paramount to be realistic about what kratom can and cannot do.
It can definitely give a sudden boost in energy. That’s partly because this plant belongs to the coffee family. And, we all know Americans’ love for coffee. Most of them cannot start their day without a cup of Joe. Kratom also tends to have similar mood-boosting effects. However, the distinction comes from the effects being more potent in nature. Also, unlike coffee, kratom doesn’t make you jittery and nervous, which is always a plus point.
A Boost In Energy – Lethargy is a widespread issue today. But, lethargy and chronic fatigue are rarely attributed to physical ailments. The underlying issues are generally psychological. Drinking kratom or consuming kratom tea may offer a sudden splurge in your energy levels. You may suddenly find yourself more ready to get up and get things going. Again, the results may seem much like being ‘high on caffeine’.
Possible Reduction in Anxiety – Most of us are overachievers today which means we are not only constantly exhausted, we are also constantly anxious. Also, a growing number of people are turning to holistic methods to kick-away or at least reduce the intensity of anxiety. Kratom, as a natural preparation may turn out to be helpful in the management of anxiety. it may not completely cure anxiety, but it may offer temporary relief. Take a look at this study conducted on kratom consumption which stipulates its possible potential to help with anxiety and stress.
