There has been a lot of discussion about the side effects that you get when taking Kratom – the ones that you experience while you are actually taking the supplement or directly afterward. These short-term side effects don’t last for very long and are usually completely gone within a few hours. But what some people have wondered about is the long-term effects of kratom. Are there any that we know of? Have researchers found any evidence to suggest that you could do damage to your body over the long run? In this article, we’ll explore exactly that about kratom.
Short Term Side Effects of Kratom
The first thing that you’ll want to know about is the short-term side effects of kratom. The problem is, there are many different side effects posted online, and if you were to compile a list of all of them, it would total in the hundreds. That’s because people take kratom and have a particular symptom and then post it, without taking into account the other circumstances. The side effect that they experienced may have nothing to do with kratom. That’s why we’ll only be listing the most common side effects reported, which include: nausea, constipation and problems sleeping. Taking too much kratom may cause nausea and vomiting.
The Long Term Side Effects of Kratom
So, the short-term effects total around five. What about the long-term effects? Has anyone actually studied long-term and came to a solid conclusion? Unfortunately, the answer to this question is no. There really hasn’t been enough time for anyone to research kratom thoroughly over the long-term. Normally, that would give someone pause, but consider this: Kratom has been used around the world for thousands of years with no noticeable health benefits. If the Pacific Islanders and people in Asia, Europe and all parts of the world haven’t reported any long-term effects, there probably aren’t any.
Kratom May Disrupt Liver Function
Kratom does have the ability to cause liver damage, which may be a reason not to use the supplement, or at least carefully evaluate whether or not you should use it. However, many of the other substances that we use have the potential to cause liver damage as well. Acetaminophen, which is the main ingredient in Tylenol, causes liver damage with long-term use or overdose as does alcohol. You definitely shouldn’t mix any of those two with kratom and experts recommend that you don’t even drink a glass of wine or a beer if you are taking kratom.
The Bottom Line on Kratom
The bottom line is that kratom is almost certainly harmless when used correctly. Even the short-term effects are of minimal risk and as long as you follow a few safety precautions you should have no problem taking kratom. Now that it is becoming more popular in the United States and around the world, there are likely to be research studies conducted to find out if there are long-term effects, but the results may not be available for decades.
