Kratom is tropical tea coming from the regions of Southeast Asia. It is also present in the Philippines and New Guinea. This herb has two compounds in it, which are mitragynine and 7-a- hydroxy mitragynine. The qualities of these compounds are that when they are taken in small amounts, they enhance brain activity and relax it. This plant is also favorable for stimulating focus and cognitive abilities.

In the West, the use of Kratom is increasing amongst people for several reasons. Kratom is helping people to overcome challenges that they are facing in daily life. The leaves of this plant can be consumed by chewing, chopping, smoking, or simply making tea. Regular Kratom users prefer having tea that they prepare in different ways.

Though Kratom tea bags are not widely available in the market yet, therefore, people choose to make them with powder.

Kratom tea vs Kratom Capsules
