Benefits of Kratom

Kratom treats sore muscles and joint problems through external application of the oil to the affected area. Taken internally, Kratom treats migraines, fevers, asthma, nausea, diarrhea and coughs. There is also evidence that Kratom works as a possible remedy for various drug addictions. Some of the more serious addictions like heroin or meth have been averted using kratom.

Modern Studies

Many Kratom treatments, however, do have scientific evidence supporting their effectiveness. According to the National Institutes of Health, the overall health-promoting effect of Kratom has been confirmed through many separate studies. Mohammad Tariq writes in the July 2018 issue of The Saudi Journal of Gastroenterology, Kratom has been found to be effective at helping the body fight harmful bacteria, fungi and parasites; can help reduce inflammation; can help treat urinary disorders; can function as a natural painkiller; can reduce high cholesterol levels; and can even help your body fight cancer cells.


Ancient tradition and modern research both support Kratom's benefits. However, you should still consult with your doctor before trying to use it to treat yourself, particularly in the case of serious diseases. Pregnant women, as well, should use extra caution and doctor supervision when trying new supplements.
