What are The Health Benefits of Maeng Da Kratom?

Dating its origin to the South East Asian countries like Thailand and Papua New Guinea, Maeng Da Kratom is a unique strain of Mitragyna Speciosa tree.

The word Maeng Da is a Thai translation for ‘Pimp grade’ or ‘Top quality’. The strain is made from leaves of mature Kratom plant. During the selection of leaves, only those with more alkaloid content are picked, which contributes to higher alkaloid profile, compared to other strains.

The strain exists in leaf extracts that may come in powdered or capsule form. Depending on factors such as individual tolerance, quality of the plant and dosage different users report different health benefits.

Maeng Da Kratom has been found to contain alkaloids that exhibit several health benefits that include but not limited to mood elevation, relief from pain, boost in energy levels, withdrawal from opioid addiction, and relief from stress and anxiety. This article aims to elaborate the health benefits of this specific strain of Kratom plant, further. 

Mood Elevation

Kratom Powder Health Benefits

Prolonged and constant mood disorders can be explained by low levels of ‘happy’ hormones in the Central Nervous System. Upon consumption of the plant’s products like Maeng Da Kratom, the alkaloids in them attach to the neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin. These two are known to replace the mood disorders with happy feelings, which translates to the elevation of mood. 

Relief from Pain

Maeng Da Kratom contains alkaloids, specifically 7 hydroxymitragynine, which regulates the receptors involved with pain management in the brain. Relief from pain comes because of Kratom alkaloids binding to these receptors. When that happens, the brain is triggered to produce analgesic effects that help reduce pain symptoms of the user. For this reason, the strain is highly sought after as a replacement for common pain medication such as headache pills. For people struggling with chronic pains, it becomes a perfect solution for withdrawal from opioid an over-dependence. 

Opioid Withdrawal

Chronic pain is so serious that no one can survive without pain relief pills. Since chronic pain is so severe, opioids are widely used to suppress that pain before the patient recovers from the health issues causing it. The major drawback with opioids for pain management is that they result to over dependence. This specific strain of Kratom plant has enough alkaloid profile to offer similar pain relief to opioids. It is a better option over opioids since it does not come with over dependence.  

Energy Boost

In low and controlled dosage, the strain is used as a perfect alternative to stimulant components like caffeine. The stimulation comes because of the strain’s alkaloids influencing the serotonergic and noradrenergic pathways in the brain. With that, the user experiences increased energy levels, which explains the claims of the strain helping in dealing with fatigue and lawlessness amongst its users. 

Stress and Anxiety

As previously mentioned, alkaloids in Maeng Da Kratom trigger the release of neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin. The release of these two neurotransmitters in the body provides the mind with an opioid feeling. As a result, the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol reduces thereby easing stress and anxiety. This strain best for people who experience anxiety and stress over simple situations like small traffic. 

Blood Pressure

People with chronic stress and depression may sometimes have trouble in breathing due to a surge in blood pressure. We previously noted that alkaloids in the strain influence the release of neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine, which are responsible for opioid effects on the brain. This leads to lowered heart rate, which in turn reduces breathing rate, thereby lowering blood pressure. 

The benefits that accrue from the consumption of the strain depend on the tolerance of different users, dosage and the quality of the product. This is because using higher dosages and buying from the wrong providers can result to a strain with lower potency profile or adverse side effects. For instance, the higher dosage of this strain of Kratom plant leads to sedation.

It goes on to show just how critical the input of your physician is in the usage of the strain. Even though there are no reported serious side effects associated with the use of the strain, it is advisable to consult with your physician before using it. Moreover, you should always stick to the usage instructions and dosage. This can help prevent possible adverse side effects. Most importantly ensure to buy the strain only from authorized dealers. Your physician can recommend to you some of the authorized and trusted Kratom sellers in the industry.
