Kratom for pain relieving is safe as it does not result in physical addiction. It is a natural plant with alkaloids.

It is a form of opioid which contributes to treating pain by acting on the delta receptors. Kratom has fewer side effects than other medical drugs. It is a cheap analgesic which is readily available without any severe side effects. Around 92 percent of people who used it, recommend it for pain and for back pain. It can be con- sumed as a tea in crushed or brewed form, in capsules, concentrated liquid or tablets.

Kratom is a perfect solution for a chronic back pain
Kratom has emerged as a natural analgesic with pain relieving property throughout the world. It has various medical uses, one of which includes the kratom’s ability to treat pain. Chronic back pain is one of the severe pains which is treated with kratom. Kratom has alkaloids which act on the opioid recep- tors such as delta, mu, and kappa. These receptors then send the signals to the neuro- nal cells which in turn increase the amounts of endorphins and enkephalins. These two chemicals are involved in the analgesic path- ways of the human body. They suppress the transmission of pain signals at points such as anterolateral Spinothalamic tract and spinal cord level. So, this shows that kratom helps in the elimination of pain by increasing the nat- ural neurotransmitters in the body.■
