Can Kratom Soothe Joint Pain?

Kratom has a lot to offer. Traditionally used for a myriad of medicinal uses, kratom’s potentially beneficial applications range from mood enhancement and energy stimulation to digestive health and lasting pain relief. 

In the case of joint pain, many kratom users have found soothing relief with various kratom strains. While the research supporting joint pain relief is limited, the growing body of positive testimonials and a long history of analgesic (pain-relieving) and anti-inflammatory use has inspired many to try kratom extract over costly or artificial relief options. 

To better understand how our various strains of kratom may lead to noticeable relief, here’s an overview of kratom’s active compounds and how they have helped many achieve a more active and pain-free lifestyle. 

It’s All About the Alkaloids

The potent leaves of Kratom, also known as mitragyna speciosa, are harvested from the kratom tree in Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia, and Myanmar. After harvesting the fresh leaves, time-tested preparation methods are used to retain potency and enhance the desirable alkaloid profile contained within each strain. 

There are over 40 known alkaloids in kratom which provide a spectrum of energizing, relaxing, and mood-enhancing possibilities. Depending on the specific strain and preparation method used to dry or extract the compounds, the final alkaloid profile and perceived benefits can vary dramatically from one strain to the next. For example, a kratom extract that is crafted from red vein kratom will contain a higher percentage of alkaloids that have an affinity for opioid-receptor activation (providing relaxation or pain relief), while a white vein kratom strain will contain a lower percentage of these soothing alkaloids and a higher percentage of compounds that stimulate the system. 

How Kratom Alkaloids Interact With the Body

Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine in Kratom are the primary active alkaloid compounds that contribute to the potential joint-relief benefits. Kratom also contains compounds such as Epicatechin and Rhynchophylline, which contain properties that may contribute to the anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-oxidative benefits that kratom is known for.

While the exact mechanism of interaction after digestion is still misunderstood, it has been shown that these compounds bind with opioid receptors and may reduce painful sensations, swelling, and other factors that cause joint pain. In addition to this opioid-receptor interaction, various alkaloids may also influence the levels of serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. Both of these chemicals influence stress and mood, and alkaloids that help your body maintain balanced levels may contribute to an improved outlook and better stress management. 

Since perceived pain, inflammation, and stress all contribute to joint issues, you can see why many individuals who try kratom experience noticeable relief! Despite these promising possibilities, it’s important to note that our kratom powder and extract are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease.
