Kratom powder is a great way to take control over our specially formulated green maeng da, red maeng da, and white maeng da kratom blends. Read on to learn more about what kratom powder is, if it comes with any benefits, and how to choose between kratom capsules and kratom powder.
What is kratom powder?
Kratom powder is a dried and powdered blend of kratom that you can use to make your own capsules, brew kratom teas, or take control over your dose. Kratom powder offers a measurable way to experience the full potential benefits of kratom by giving you more control over all the different ways you can enjoy kratom. Each bag of our kratom powder blends contains 25 – 1000 mg of kratom powder.
Kratom is a plant in the coffee family found throughout Southeastern Asia. There is some scientific evidence available to support its potentially beneficial properties, including energetic, sedative, euphoric and pain relieving effects. Red kratom powder may be used for pain relief and sedation, while white kratom powder might be used for energy and pain. Green kratom powder offers the best of both worlds.
Potential benefits of kratom powder
Kratom offers a variety of effects thanks to its two active ingredients: Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine. These natural alkaloids bind to the opioid receptors in your brain to trigger a focused, euphoric high, pain relief, emotional balance and relaxation. Because of its interactions with our opioid receptors, kratom powder might be able to help people manage withdrawal symptoms from other opiates.
According to some scientific evidence and anecdotal reports, kratom powder has potential to:
- Reduce pain
- Cause a euphoric high
- Increase energy
- Improve sleep
- Reduce depression or anxiety
- Improve sex drive
- Regulate blood sugar
- Help with the negative effects of opioid withdrawal.
Just remember that more study is still needed to prove or disprove these potential benefits. Be sure to always consult your doctor before taking any herbal supplements, including kratom. A doctor can work with you to give you the full scoop on potential effects and side effects and help you rule out any possible side effects of kratom with your other medications.
Kratom Powder vs. Capsules
Kratom powder is a great way to take control over how much kratom you take. Powders make it possible to easily mix your desired dose into your favorite foods and hot beverages. They also make it possible for you to make them into your own capsules and customize your blends. For most people, powders are preferred since they can easily be brewed into teas with other wellness-driven, functional ingredients. The only downside is that kratom powder will need to be measured more carefully than capsules, which are already pre-measured to a standard serving size. Choose capsules when you don’t want to measure, and choose powders if you want more control over the effects of your kratom blend.
