Top Most Effective Kratom Products That Might Do Wonders To Your Body Ache

Following are the top 6 Kratom products that may help reduce your body ache:-

1.     Raw Dried Leaves

Chewing dried leaves of Kratom is one of the oldest ways to consume the herb. The leaves have an earthy but bitter flavor and might not be the best for you if you want to please your taste buds. However, they are convenient and might be the best option if you have a busy life. Natives of Southeast Asian countries initially consumed Kratom by chewing its raw, dried leaves.

 

After consuming these leaves and chewing them, you will feel their effects kicking in within minutes. Consistently taking these leaves might soothe your nerve endings and help with chronic or acute body aches.

 

2.     Toss And Wash

Kratom powder is yet another convenient way of consuming the herb. You can consume it in several ways; however, the ‘toss and wash’ method remains popular among Kratom enthusiasts. In this method, you toss a spoonful of powder in your mouth. However, rather than gulping it down, you drink a glass of water and let it mix with the powder in your mouth. Then you let the mixture into your food pipe while drinking more water to wash the powder down your throat. It is a quick way to consume the powder while minimizing its bitter taste.

 

You will still experience the bitterness, but it will be comparatively lesser than chewing the powder without water. It happens because gulping down water will wash off the powder from your tongue, and your tastebuds will retain a lesser aftertaste.

 

3.     Kratom Tea

Kratom tea is another way to consume the herb, coupled with a soothing and refreshing experience. All you have to do is brew the powder or dried leaves in hot water and other ingredients. Although the procedure might take a little time, we assure you it’s worth it! These additional ingredients, like honey, lemon, sugar, sativa, etc., can elevate your overall experience.

 

Within minutes of drinking this tea, you might feel a wave of freshness wash over you- and that’s the perfect start to your hectic day. Most effects of this tea depend on the Kratom strain you have chosen to brew. So make sure you choose the one that might have the potential to soothe your aching muscles- like Red Maeng Da Kratom.

 

4.     Mixing Kratom With Foods and Drinks

The most innovative way to consume Kratom is by mixing the herb with your daily food items and beverages. These combinations have taken new enthusiasts by storm. You can mix the herb with any food or drink, like cookies, coffee, cakes, or smoothies. It might be the best option for you if you don’t want the bitter taste of Kratom to linger in your mouth.

 

Mixing the herb with foods and drinks can save valuable time and make your consumption more fun and creative. It will also help your consistency, as consuming bitter Kratom powder or leaves will seem manageable in the long run if mixed with your favorite treats.

 

5.     Kratom Capsules

Making tea or food items filled with Kratom is time-consuming and might be messy if you don’t know how to cook. And the powder and leaves sure have a bitter taste that might border on unbearable for you. If you are looking for a way that saves your time and is completely tasteless, high quality kratom capsules should be your product to go.

 

In that case, these capsules are the best choice, as you only need to swallow one pill with a glass of water. Admittedly, it could be more creative and fun, but it works the same. Moreover, it might soothe your body ache, and consuming such pills is a hassle-free process.

6.     Kratom Tincture

If you still need a concentrated dose where you can feel the Kratom traveling through your system but also want to reduce its bitter taste, Kratom tinctures are the way to go. Tinctures as powders that get diluted by mixing them with a liquid base. However, their concentration levels are much higher than pills or powders. Thus, take a smaller dose if you are consuming the tincture. Most vendors now sell these tinctures with a dropper so that you can easily measure your dose and not exceed the desired limit. However, you can also make DIY tinctures at your home. It might help your body ache in the long term.

The highest rates are in Tonga and American Samoa for women and American Samoa and Nauru for men, with some 70-80% of adults living with obesity.
Out of some 190 countries, the United Kingdom ranks 55th highest for men and 87th for women.
The international team of scientists say there is an urgent need for major changes in how obesity is tackled.
Obesity can increase the risk of developing many serious health conditions, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
Ranking global obesity rates (the percentage of population classed as obese, after age differences are accounted for), researchers found:
The US comes 10th highest for men and 36th highest for women
India ranks 19th lowest for women and 21st lowest for men
China is 11th lowest for women and 52nd lowest for men

Senior researcher Prof Majid Ezzati, of Imperial College London, told the BBC: “In many of these island nations it comes down to the availability of healthy food versus unhealthy food.
“In some cases there have been aggressive marketing campaigns promoting unhealthy foods, while the cost and availability of healthier food can be more problematic.”
Prof Ezzati, who has been looking at global data for years, says he is surprised at the speed the picture has changed, with many more countries now facing an obesity crisis, while the number of places where people being underweight is regarded as the biggest concern, has decreased.

Five Die As Cholera Hits Lagos

Published

on

Not fewer than five people are reportedly dead and 60 others hospitalised following a deadly Cholera outbreak in Lagos.
Already the state government is calling for heightened vigilance and adoption of precautionary measures.
The state government in a statement yesterday urged the need to ensure that the disease is not spread, saying that an excess of severe gastroenteritis cases had been reported in Lagos in the last 48 hours.
Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi disclosed that cases of severe gastroenteritis had been reported in communities around Eti Osa, Lagos Island, Ikorodu and Kosofe LGA, resulting in about 60 hospital admissions, and sadly five deaths had been recorded mainly from patients presenting late with extreme dehydration.
“We have activated a statewide heightened surveillance and response. The Ministry of Health Directorate of Environmental Health and the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) have been alerted to investigate a possible water contamination source in the Lekki Victoria Island axis.

“We suspect a possible cholera outbreak; however, samples have been taken for confirmation. As of April 28, 2024, Nigeria reported 815 suspected cholera cases and 14 deaths across 25 states,” he said.
The Commissioner noted that following recent rains, Lagos State has seen a notable increase in cases of severe vomiting and watery stools, adding that urban slums and crowded areas with poor sanitation were particularly at risk.
Abayomi explained that cholera is a highly contagious disease that caused severe diarrhea and could be life-threatening, adding that it posed a significant health burden in areas with poor water treatment and sanitation, and could impact Lagos State.
“Cholera spreads through direct transmission by eating or drinking contaminated food or water, and indirect transmission due to poor sanitation and lack of handwashing. Symptoms of cholera include severe watery diarrhea, vomiting, rapid dehydration, muscle cramps, fever and sometimes collapse,” he said.
According to him, treatment options for cholera include rehydration using Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) for mild to moderate dehydration, saying that intravenous fluids is used for severely dehydrated patients given only in medical facilities and supervised by medical personnel.
“To prevent cholera, citizens are urged to ensure safe drinking water by boiling, chlorinating, or using bottled water, and avoiding ice products made from untreated water. Maintaining proper sanitation by using toilets, safely disposing of faeces, and avoiding open defecation crucial.
“Practicing good hygiene, such as washing hands with soap and clean water regularly, especially before eating, preparing food, and after using the toilet, is essential and following food safety guidelines,” the Commissioner advised.
He enjoined citizens to rely on the Lagos State Ministry of Health, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), and accredited local health facilities for guidance, advice, and updates on prevention, treatment, and management.
He added that suspected cases could be reported via the following emergency hotlines: 08023169485, 08137412348, or by using helplines 767 or 112.

WHO Raises Alarm Over Viral Hepatitis Epidemics, STIs

Published

on

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says viral hepatitis epidemics and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are causes of  2.5 million deaths each annually.
According to a new WHO report titled,” Implementing the Global Health Sector Strategies on HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexually Transmitted Infections, 2022–2030,” STIs are increasing in many regions.
In 2022, WHO had targetted of reducing the annual number of adult syphilis infections by ten-fold by 2030, from 7.1 million to 0.71 million, but new syphilis cases among adults aged 15-49 years increased by over 1 million in 2022 reaching 8 million. The highest increases occurred in the Region for the Americas and the African region.
Combined with insufficient decline seen in the reduction of new HIV and viral hepatitis infections, the report expressed doubt  to the attainment of the related targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
“The rising incidence of syphilis raises major concerns”, said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “Fortunately, there has been important progress on a number of other fronts including in accelerating access to critical health commodities including diagnostics and treatment.
The WHO DG said tools required to curb these epidemics as public health threats by 2030 are available, but that there’s need to ensure that, in the context of an increasingly complex world, countries do all they can to achieve the ambitious targets they set themselves”.
Increasing incidence of sexually transmitted infections four curable STIs – syphilis (Treponema pallidum), gonorrhea (Neisseria gonorrhoeae), chlamydia (Chlamydia trachomatis), and trichomoniasis (Trichomonas vaginalis) – account for over 1 million infections daily.
The report notes a surge in adult and maternal syphilis (1.1 million) and associated congenital syphilis (523 cases per 100 000 live births per year) during the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, there were 230 000 syphilis-related deaths.
New data also show an increase in multi-resistant gonorrhoea. As at 2023, out of 87 countries where enhanced gonorrhoea antimicrobial resistance surveillance was conducted, 9 countries reported elevated levels (from 5percent to 40percent) resistance to ceftriaxone, the last line treatment for gonorrhoea. WHO is monitoring the situation and has updated its recommended treatment to reduce the spread of this multi-resistant gonorrhoea strain.
In 2022, around 1.2 million new hepatitis B cases and nearly 1 million new hepatitis C cases were recorded. The estimated number of deaths from viral hepatitis rose from 1.1 million in 2019 to 1.3 million in 2022 despite effective prevention, diagnosis, and treatment tools.
New HIV infections only reduced from 1.5 million in 2020 to 1.3 million in 2022. Five key population groups men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers, transgender individuals, and individuals in prisons and other closed settings still experience significantly higher HIV prevalence rates than the general population.
