The demand for Kratom has hit the ground running in the recent times. People seem to have realized that it is very effective in losing weight, boosting moods, and improving sleep. The fact that it is a natural herb adds color to the already excellent package. However, just like any other herb, it has its flip side and here are a few side effects of kratom.
The Possibility Of Addiction
Users of the Kratom experience several withdrawal symptoms when they cease consumption of the herb. The most obvious withdrawal symptom is the persistent craving for Kratom. Others include irritability, sweating, and nausea. Consequently, you expect the withdrawal from Kratom consumption to lead to insomnia. Although these withdrawal symptoms are easily treatable, you need to take Kratom in moderation to avoid dependency because after all, prevention is better than cure.
Darkening Of The Skin
Excessive use of Kratom leads to facial skin hyperpigmentation in the long run. The user of the herb develops dark skin spots on the face. Although there is still no scientific backing of the possibility to damage the skin, Kratom dependency is likely to lead to skin hyperpigmentation. If you want to maintain your up-to-the-minute facial looks, take Kratom with care and do not overdose.
Loss Of Appetite
As noted earlier, Kratom is good for weight loss, and it helps you lose weight by suppressing your appetite. This suppression of your appetite may end up being too much for you at a time when you want to keep healthy by eating various foods. Indeed, even weight loss itself is only good up to some extent. Excessive Kratom consumption may lead to anorexia and excessive loss of weight.
Long-term use of Kratom is also associated with psychosis and at this stage, it is actually a combination of both the minor and major side effects of Kratom usage as well as the long-term and the short-term effects. Here, thoughts are highly impaired, such that they do not match with the actual reality.
Users of Kratom have reported a few cases of dizziness, and they experience a Kratom aftereffects, which is comparable to the of liquor hangover. This feeling is commonly characterized by difficulties of staying awake (and therefore disruption of your sleeping patterns), lack of concentration, and reduced sociability.
With this in mind, it is worth noting that when it comes to using of supplements, every case is a special case. What works for you may not work for another person. In the same vein, what affects you may not affect your friend. You may take Kratom without experiencing any of the said side effects. As a matter of fact, it is safe to say that most of these side effects are due to misuse of Kratom, as there is limited scientific information on the side effects of this natural herb. Always keep in mind that too much of everything is dangerous.
