What is better than a drink that can bring us an aura of enthusiasm? A drink that inculcates in us a sense of optimism. One that kills anxiety and refreshes us as a renewed soul. Nothing, obviously!
Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, is one powerful herb extracted from South Asia’s lush rainforests. It formed an integral cultural part of the native farmer communities for centuries. This topical ever-green plant provides stimulant effects, relieves pain at lower doses, and acts as an excellent sedating and relaxing agent.
And well, that’s not it! Lately, scientific and medical research has hinted at its promising powers for healing health complications such as depression, anxiety, arthritis, insomnia, muscle spasms, weight gain, and the list goes on.
The Original Taste of Kratom
Despite its immense therapeutic potential, perhaps the only known drawback of the herb is its leafy and pungent herbal flavor- which is outright bitter and not so tongue pleasingly.
It is considered bare and dissatisfying as compared to the other delicious drinks sold around. Consequently, its raw form is usually avoided and detested even by the most experienced Kratom users.
Are you feeling upset and demotivated already?
Before you decide to close down this article, we want to share a Good News….
Now, kratom users can mix it with various drinks to render an exceptionally luscious and mouth-watering taste. This essentially means that you can tap on all the crucial benefits of the herbal plant without undergoing the pain of swallowing a not-so-pleasing powder or liquid.
The interesting part of the entire process is converting powdered kratom to a much more enhanced liquid. For example, when powdered kratom is added to tea, it makes it more concentrated and effective. Similarly, combining it with other beverages undermines its bitter and acidic taste and considerably boosts its medicinal impact.
