kratom leaves

Kratom is a controversial plant that often makes its way in the news for all the wrong reasons. However, its global popularity continues to rise, with more than 5 million people consuming it every day. The only problem with this plant is that medical science doesn’t support it as a suitable medicine.

In this article, I will guide you through some health benefit claims that are shared by millions of people globally. Though none of the medical research supports any medical claim, people continue to consume it.
