Kratom Revolution: A Powerful Weight Loss Secret

Native to the Southeast Asian countries of Thailand and Papua New Guinea, the kratom plant was used to treat stress and anxiety.

Over time, it has experienced a massive revolution. The plant extract is still widely used for various health issues ranging from anxiety, regulation of blood pressure, pain relief, and elevation of mood.

However, some people have recently been using the extract for weight loss. Although not backed up with scientific research, there is enough evidence showing that some users experienced a decrease in their weight after consumption of the extract.

This article delves into how this herb can be your powerful secret to weight loss. 

Energy Boost

Kratom powder for weight loss

In some studies, kratom extract from its leaves was found to increase energy levels through enhanced metabolism. With enhanced metabolism, individuals can then burn more calories thereby contributing to reduced fat in their bodies. In another study, the extract was found to enhance thermogenesis, which is simply the production of body heat. Enhanced thermogenesis may support weight loss since individuals will be more active in physical activities and exercises. 

Regulation of Blood Pressure

People struggling with low and high blood pressure sometimes may experience increased weight. This is because of the fact that most are prohibited from activities that may cause blood pressure to increase above normal. If that were to happen, the patient may experience adverse effects like heart failure and stroke. Since kratom is closely associated with the regulation of blood pressure, it may help in losing some body weight. With properly regulated blood pressure, an individual can then engage in exercises to help them in their weight loss journey. 

Appetite Suppression

High appetite is directly associated with increased weight and eventual obesity. Some strains of kratom, especially those that contain a high profile of alkaloid mitragynine have been found to contain some appetite-suppressing ability. As appetite decreases, people tend to reduce their calorie intake. Appetite suppression cannot necessarily lead to weight loss; other supportive measures have to come into play. 

Individuals seeking to cut some pounds must adhere to balanced and healthy nutrition. They must reduce carbs and fats intake for the alkaloid to contribute to weight loss. Similarly, they must engage in an effective physical exercise plan to achieve meaningful results. 

Mood Elevation 

Mitragynine and 7-Hydromitragynine alkaloids of kratom have been found to bind to neurotransmitters, dopamine, and serotonin, both of which can lead to elevation of mood. Elevated mood supports better mental well-being, which in turn may contribute to weight loss. Mental stability may support weight loss by eradicating stress eating, which is one of the main causes of weight increase and consequential obesity. Stable mental well-being also supports faithful adherence to a workout routine, hence a drop in weight. 

Pain Relief

One of the main reasons people quit working out soon after enrolling is the pain that follows. What most people may not know is that unless it is a severe injury, pain from exercises is normal in the first days and will fade slowly, as you continue working out. Since most people do not have enough pain tolerance, they end up quitting the routine and they reap very little results. 

The alkaloids, Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine in kratom have been found to attach to neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine. These two have been known to reduce pain symptoms in kratom users. As pain fades away, kratom users can then go back to faithfully adhering to their workout routine, thus leading to weight loss. 

Enhanced Muscle Health

Another major reason for people to drop out of their workout routines is injured muscles. Unlike muscle spasms, injuries may render you immobile for some time, hence increased weight. Through increased energy levels, pain relief, activation of neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, and a stabilized mental well-being, kratom can aid in muscle health and recovery from muscle spasms. With healthy muscles, individuals can then engage in more exercises faithfully, which contributes to weight loss. 

Even with all the above-discussed abilities to support weight loss, kratom usage must be coupled with other measures. From a stabilized mental state, to an effective workout routine and healthy eating habits, the use of kratom in regulated dosage can be a powerful secret to weight loss. However, to make the most out of the extract, the strain must be highly potent in an alkaloid profile. It must also be used in regulated dosage. The contribution of your family doctor comes in handy to assess your compatibility with kratom products and administer the right dosage. This is because, in high dosages, kratom may exhibit adverse side effects such as sedation.
