Mitragynine is the most potent alkaloid found in kratom and Candid Orange Flavored kratom contains a kratom extract with 45% mitragynine. Mitragynine binds to the alpha-adrenergic receptors in your cells and contains both calming and energizing effects, depending on the dose you take. The most common effects from the use of kratom include an ability to intensely concentrate and focus, a natural feeling of physical energy, relief from symptoms of anxiety and depression, relief from stress, muscle relaxation, a regulation of sleep schedules, a boost in immune response, an increase in sexual drive and a longer sexual performance, feelings of euphoria, joy, and optimism. It’s unknown if this is because of the mitragynine but it is thought that the interaction of all of the alkaloids in kratom may produce these effects. Studies are currently underway to explore some of the health benefits that have been found in the use of kratom including the anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties that some users have experienced.
