Kratom is a well-known and emerging botanical drug which has gained so much public popularity in the last century. It is known for its activity to release pain and body stress as well as it also has some of the shocking benefits for the human body immunity.
Besides all of the advantages of the Kratom consumption, there also persist some of the negative effects of the drug as well. It is recognized through various studies that it can negatively impact some of the essential and most delicate organs and organ systems of human body i.e. heart, liver and kidney.
Some of the most important biological and metabolic pathways are disturbed when an individuals start Kratom intake. We are focusing on all of the possible risks your heart is at, if you are considering the drug application, or already using it.
Basically, the herb is known to have a transition in its chemical action. It can act as a stimulant and as a depressant according to the body needs. Therefore, the sensitivity of the patients suffering from hyper or hypotension increases towards it. Whenever, they practice a regular intake of Mitragyna kratom powder, they may get an unpredictable drop or a sudden rise in the blood pressure level. This abrupt reaction can cause a biochemical disturbance in the body systems and the pumping ability of the human the heart gets disturbed as well.
The functioning of the heart requires a smooth and adequate supply of the blood and oxygen. This shock can induce many severe health conditions and ailments related to the cardiovascular system.
The cardiac activity is mostly damaged due to the hyper and hypotension. Whenever Kratom gets a chance to interact with amphetamines, it increases the blood pressure to a notable level. This ultimately induces neurotoxicity as well.
The stimulant effect of Kratom can cause an elevated heart rate due to the rapid burst of energy levels in the body which can be extremely dangerous. This can constricts the blood vessels and can cause a rush in negative energy in the patients. The accidental over dosage can also lead to myocardial infraction (Heart Attack). Therefore the intake should be monitored continuously by a clinical physician or a consultant.
The correct dose should be prescribed according to the body need if you are using this as a medicinal drug. Heart health risks were one of the reasons behind the prohibition of Kratom use in any countries by FDA and their local governments as well. Tachycardia (fast heart rate) is observed in the regular Kratom users, and it was stated in scientific studies that the fast pumping of heart can cause muscular fatigue in the cardiac muscles and can weaken the whole system. It can also result in irreversible damage on the heart capacity to pump the blood to the whole body.
Contrary to this, some of the individuals experience hypotension when on higher doses and this lead to delusions, hallucinations and a loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can reduce the energy and glucose levels in the blood, other body fluids and inside the cells too. All of us are well aware about the need of respiratory energy needed for the cells to function properly.
Whenever the cellular respiration is depressed due to any reason, many cells can even die due to inadequate supply of energy. Having a keen look on all of the aspects we mentioned above, we can conclude that there are a number of concerns regarding the heart health and proper functioning.
These negative effects can be avoided just by avoiding the regular intake of Kratom possibly, and if the body is in such a condition that it can’t be avoided, the physician should have a strict check & a continuous supervision on the body energy, blood pressure and glucose level to prevent any irreversible damage.
