What is Menopause?
Menopause is the cessation of menstrual periods in women for at least 12 consecutive months. Women in menopause can no longer become pregnant naturally. Menopause starts in women of the ages between 45 to 55 years. However, it can also develop before or after this age range in some women.
Menopause causes several uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes and weight gain etc. The age of 51 Years is considered as the median age for menopause. The experience of menopause is unique in every woman. The symptoms of sudden menopause or menopause of a shorter period, are more severe and uncomfortable.
The most common signs and symptoms of menopause include:

According to the experts, menopause is a natural process that occurs in every woman at a certain age. In this situation, the ovaries age and produce fewer reproductive hormones, unlike normal conditions.
Kratom and Menopause
Women try different natural remedies for menopause but none of them is completely effective. Recently, women have started to use Kratom for the treatment of menopause due to its strong healing properties. Many users have reported that Kratom can be helpful in the alleviation of several symptoms associated with menopause. Although it is not approved medically, Kratom may be a potential treatment of menopause in women.
In this article, we are going to discuss how does Kratom work for menopause and what are the benefits of using it. But before this, here is a brief introduction to Kratom.
Kratom is an evergreen herbal plant native to Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea. The scientific name of Kratom is Mitragyna speciosa. The native people of Southeast Asian countries have been using Kratom for many years for the treatment of many ailments and medical conditions such as chronic pain, inflammation, muscle aches, and diarrhea. Kratom leaves are also used to reduce fatigue and increase the energy levels of the body.
How does Kratom work for menopause?
Kratom has two major active alkaloids which are responsible for its effects. These alkaloids are Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine. Both these alkaloids are able to interact with different receptors in the body including opioid receptors in the brain. Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine interact with the opioid receptors and provide several benefits to women suffering from menopause symptoms.
What are the benefits of using Kratom for menopause?
Women suffering from menopause can get several health benefits from Kratom, including:
· Improve Sleep
Women who are undergoing menopausal experience have irregular sleeping patterns often. This irregularity in sleep is due to the imbalance in hormones. Kratom improves sleep due to its strong relaxant benefits. In higher dosage, Kratom produces relaxing effects throughout the body which are very helpful in the treatment of insomnia. Kratom is considered a tool for menopausal women because of its relaxant properties. It can help them in getting deeper sleep and fall asleep at a regular time.
· Energizes the body
Overwhelming fatigue is another issue generally faced by menopausal women. Due to this fatigue, women feel difficulty in maintaining their energy levels to carry our daily routine tasks. Kratom can be a potent tool in this regard due to its relaxing effects. It acts as a strong energy booster in the body. A lower dosage of Kratom (1-4 gram) can be incredibly stimulating and energy-boosting.
· Improve mental clarity and focus
Discrepancies in mental function and memory are common in menopausal women. People also called it a "brain fogginess" situation. Kratom can really help in improving mental clarity and focus to boost brain functions. It is the best natural remedy if you want to regain your focus to be able to carry out daily routine tasks.
· Stabilize Mood
We mentioned above that mood swings are one of the major symptoms of menopause. Again, the mood swings in menopause are directly related to the imbalance in hormones. Kratom is a great option to help cope with erratic mood swings. It can reduce both anxiety and depression by binding with the opioid receptors in the brain, especially in menopausal women.
· Boost Metabolism
We have discussed earlier, that Kratom boosts the body's energy. But how it is possible? Actually, Kratom boosts the metabolism of the body due to which the body digests food more efficiently and produces more energy. Kratom involves increasing the speed of the process of the conversion of food into energy. Apart from improving metabolic function, Kratom also helps in removing the imbalance of the hormones in the body.
· Enhances Libido
With an appropriate dosage of Kratom, menopausal women can enhance their libido and sexual drive. Kratom can be a great tool for sexual enhancement due to its strong stimulating properties. Women who have used Kratom reported more orgasms than before using it.
Kratom can be helpful for menopausal women in the alleviation of several signs and symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and hormonal imbalance, etc. However, an appropriate dosage should be consumed to get these benefits. Consultation with the family doctor is highly recommended before using Kratom. You should also not take a higher dosage of Kratom because it can cause severe sedative effects which are not good for cognition health.
