Kratom As An Anti-Malarial Effects

Kratom As An Anti-Malarial Effects

Get well with Kratom. Fight of malaria!

Malaria is a very dangerous disease that has not stop infecting people since ancient times. One would think, why should I worry about malaria if only citizens of tropic countries are infected? We don’t have malaria mosquitos in Europe or America. Well, unfortunately, this is not true.

Despite the fact that malarial mosquito’s exist in Africa mostly (there are evidence that they are in India, some regions of America, Indonesia, and the Philippines for example), breakthroughs of malaria (small or big ones) are not a rare thing. Malaria is registered regularly in:

  • Africa
  • Central and North America
  • Asia
  • Philippines
  • India
  • East Indonesia
  • Pakistan

Despite the fact that physicians are constantly fighting, and most of the times very effectively, against malaria, it still remains one of the most widespread infectious diseases and one of the most difficult to manage in the world. If looking at this matter statistically, then a must to say is that approximately 40% of the world’s population is threatened by this disease and every year approximately 300 million people get infected with malaria of which 1-3 million cases end lethally.

And the problem with malaria is that it is transferred from people to other people through blood (blood transfusions, organ transfusion etc.) and this is accompanied by the fact that it’s a traveler’s disease; Africans have immunity against malaria, while travelers don’t and that is what makes this disease so dangerous.

How can Kratom cure malaria?

Usually, malaria is cured with the help of a substance called quinine. Although quinine has been for long the most effective substance in managing malaria, is quite expensive and has some unpleasant side effects that may take place during treatment:

  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Elevated heartbeat
  • Hand tremors
  • Insomnia
  • Hives
  • Elevated body temperature
  • Uterine bleeding in women
  • Hemoglobinuria fever

Also, most of the travelers who are about to visit tropic countries receive prevention therapy taking short courses of quinine a week before travel and during the stay.

Kratom can not only help you fight malaria while infected with mild cases of malaria (in fact it cannot help you fight it at all if you get infected with tropical malaria, or another very difficult-to-manage malaria, unfortunately), it also can help you prevent malaria if you are intending to visit a tropical country or a country with a high risk of malaria infection; add to that if you are an experienced user, you are already more or less protected from malaria.

Traditional healers use Kratom for malaria management, a fact which scientist was curious to study and the results were quite amazing. Extracts of these plants were tested on three strains of Plasmodium falciparum, FcB1-Colombia and FcM29-Cameroon and a Nigerian chloroquine-sensitive strain for an evaluation of antiplasmodial activity and cytotoxicity in vitro. The results showed that Kratom has indeed a quite high anti-malaria activity, especially in mild cases of malaria and prevention of malaria.

What are the best types and doses?

It is difficult to tell. It is traditionally considered that the most potent strains which have the most alkaloids are the most effective. In fact, its alkaloids that can help you manage malaria are both in

If talking about doses:
