The herb known as "kratom" is a plant native to the rainforests of Southeast Asia. It has been used throughout history in traditional herbal medicine to treat pain, increase energy, reduce anxiety and depression symptoms, and promote feelings of wellness.

Because the kratom plant allegedly exhibits opioid-like activity, there are some concerns about its safety and potential to be abused. Many Kratom users affirm its medicinal properties, claiming that it is safer and more effective than common prescription pain medicines, and less addictive.

Based on the limited data that is available on kratom, it appears as though the actual plant extract is basically safe, and problems associated with kratom are the result of being abused or taken with other substances causing contraindications. When used properly, kratom does not appear to present health dangers. You can learn more about kratom herb and possible side-effects by visiting: kratom reviews
