Headache is one of the most common medical complaints; it affects anyone regardless of gender, race, and age, and most people experience it at some point in their life. Headache can be a sign of emotional distress, stress, or may result from a medical disorder such as depression, anxiety, or high blood pressure. If you suffer from headaches, you are not alone; more than 15% of all adults in the U.S complain about severe headaches, with the number of women expected to be twice as high as that of men. People find relief from the over-the-counter medicines but because they may have severe side effects, Kratom tea tends to be the best natural alternative.
How Kratom tea treats headaches
The action of Kratom tea to relieve pain is attributed to the presence of two essential chemicals, 7-Hydroxymitragynine and Mitragynine present in the leaves of Kratom. They follow up your body’s opioid receptors to alleviate head pain effectively and speed up the action of endorphins to decrease pain sensitivity. According to research, Mitragynine is the most abundant chemical in Kratom tea, and because it’s opioid receptor agonist, it binds to opioid receptors in the brain to suppress pain. Alkaloid 7-Hydroxymitragynine is about 17 times more potent than morphine and 20 times more powerful than Mitragynine and hence a perfect headache reliever.
How to prepare Kratom tea
Preparing Kratom tea is easy and straightforward, and anyone can make their perfect cup right from their kitchen. Given that the most important alkaloids are present in the leaves, you can make a great cup of Kratom tea using fresh leaves or finely grounded powder. First things first, the alkaloids in Kratom are stable at high temperatures, and you can have peace of mind knowing that they cannot lose their potency.
- Pour water in a teapot and add fresh Kratom leaves or powder depending on your preferences

Tips to consider when making Kratom tea
