What Affects Alkaloid Content in Kratom and Other Plants?
Alkaloids are the active compounds in kratom, responsible for most of its effects. These compounds aren’t unique to kratom, though, and are a form of defense many plants use against predators. Because of this, some alkaloids aren’t good for humans. Humans regularly use many alkaloids, though, from quinine in tonic water (and some malaria treatments) to caffeine in your morning coffee.
Kratom’s alkaloids: Mitragynine & 7-OH
The main alkaloid in kratom is called mitragynine, and dry kratom leaves can contain up to just over two percent of this compound. In general, the other alkaloids present in kratom in trace amounts aren’t as active as mitragynine. A more potent alkaloid, 7-hydroxymitragynine (sometimes called 7-OH), is a variant of mitragynine that naturally occurs in much lower concentrations in kratom leaves.
Kratom’s alkaloid content can change significantly depending on how the kratom is grown, where it is grown, and what the growth environment is like. Contrary to popular belief, no matter how kratom is grown, it isn’t possible to “alkalize” blood with kratom. Moreover, having an increased amount of alkaloids or alkaline substances in the body does not inherently make people healthier.
