Kratom is a name derived from the Thai language and has given to an evergreen tropical plant, mitragyna speciosa. It is an herbaceous plant belonging to the Coffee family. Kratom is natively grown in Southeast Asian countries. It extends from 30 to 70 feet tall.
Kratom comprises a particular class of chemical compounds known as alkaloids. Alkaloids contain nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen as primary elements. These alkaloids develop positive effects on an individual’s health.
What are Alkaloids?
Millions of organic and inorganic compounds are present in all living organisms. The chemical compounds found in the plants are called phytochemicals.
Alkaloids are unique phytochemicals present in many plants like Kratom, poppy, and ergot. These alkaloids have remarkable impacts, which have been proven scientifically.
Their effects vary widely depending on the number of alkaloids and plant morphology. This diversity led to extensive research on various kinds of alkaloids.
Alkaloids found in Mitragyna speciosa:
There are about 40 alkaloids present in Kratom; these are categorized under two main alkaloids, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine. These two alkaloids are present at 95% in mitragyna.
Let’s discuss about the abundant alkaloids found in this unique herb,
Mitragynine contains an indole functional group with the chemical formula C23H30N2O4. It is the most abundant and potent alkaloid of Kratom. The plants grown in Thailand’s rainforests have a maximum amount of mitragynine.
Pure Leaf Kratom sources raw mitragyna from Thailand, including the highest quantity of mitragynine. It is insoluble in water and works on the body’s calcium channels and serotonergic receptors. So its effect is just like the opioid. However, its side effects are lesser than opioids.
Mitragynine has been considered suitable for chronic pain, stress, anxiety, mood uplift, and boosting energy.
7-hydroxymitragynine is also an indole alkaloid. Its chemical formula is C23H30N2O5. Compared to mitragynine, it is less potent and less active. However, it produces distinct positive effects on the individual’s body.
It is present in lesser quantity in the leaves of plants. However, the Indonesian acidic soil is best to obtain its higher amount. Several products are found in Pure leaf kratom, which contains high quantities of 7-hydroxymitragynine. Higher quantities of 7-HMG ultimately increase the potency of ketum.
These have been considered best for kratom beginners. According to a report, 7-hydroxy mitragynine is several times more potent than morphine, which is present in the poppy plant.
This amazing alkaloid is used for depression and anxiety symptoms, euphoria, and energy enhancement for the whole day long.
Other active alkaloids present in the significant quantity include Speciogynine, Mitraphylline, Paynantheine, Speciophylline, Rhynchophylline,Raubasine,Akuammigine,Ciliaphylline,Corynantheidine (rauhimbine), Speciociliatine, Corynoxeine, Speciofoline, Corynoxine A and B, Epicatechin, 9-Hydroxycorynantheidine, Isomitrafoline, Isospeciofoline,
Mitraciliatine, Mitragynine oxindole B, Mitrafoline, Mitraversine, Stipulatine, Tetrahydroalstonine, Isopteropodine,
These are present in minimal quantities of almost 5%, but they add up to an amazing and positive impact on the overall effects of Kratom.
