In the wake of a worldwide emergency of Coronavirus or COVID-19, Professor Usman Thamrin of Tanjungpura University in Indonesia, eloquently explained how organic substances might aid our fight against the highly contagious virus. The professor said that Kratom could strengthen the immune system and help fight any viral bacteria. In a news report in local Indonesian newspapers, the professor said that as Mitragyna Speciosa commonly known as Kratom enhances the immune system, users may show resistance to the virus that is causing panic all over the world.
Many Kratom sellers are using this statement to boost sales. However, they are misquoting the professor by saying that Chloroquine, a chemical used for respiratory infections. With most of Europe and many cities in the United States under restricted activity, there are thousands of coronavirus patients around the globe.
Professor Thamrin said, “The diversity of tropical plants in West Kalimantan has a lot of compounds that can strengthen the immune system and ward off coronavirus.” He specifically mentioned Mitragynine compounds, which gives some hope to everyone who is trying to avoid the virus!
Professor Thamrin talked mostly about the alkaloids in Kratom, but many people are linking his statement to the presence of anti-virus compound Chloroquine. While there is scientific research to back the concept of stronger immunity to avoid the virus, there is no truth in Mitragyna Speciosa containing Chloroquine. Professor Thamrin said that Chloroquinine helps fight Coronavirus, but he did not say it is present in Kratom. The professor only mentioned that some components of Kratom may have amines similar to this chemical compound.
In the United States, we may see a lockdown soon, and this calls for using our time to take care of our health so that we can combat Coronavirus, COVID-19, with a healthy immune system!
Kratom alkaloids and the immune system
One of the few organic substances available in the American markets is Mitragyna. There is some doubt about the efficacy of Kratom as a potent substance. This uncertainty arises since the FDA does not recognize it as a medicine, and neither is there enough scientific evidence to prove the potential of this botanical.
However, since it was used in traditional medicine in its native land in the Southeast Asian region, we do feel that some research is essential to understand the potential benefits of the natural substance.
Our curiosity in Kratom has increased since Professor Thamrin’s statement and the pandemic is reaching greater heights. However, the reality is that Chloroquine is not found in Mitragyna. The active alkaloid that is closest to Chloroquine is Quinine, located in the bark of the Cinchona tree, belonging to the Mitragyna family.
Chloroquine is synthesized from the molecules of Quinine, but it is not readily present in Kratom. There are Kratom alkaloids that strengthen the immune system, which is the only productive way to prevent Coronavirus!
Along with numerous alkaloids, the immunity-building alkaloids in the substance are Isorhynchopylline and Isoptreropodine. These alkaloids boost the immune system, and you will feel stronger against the common cold, or any other epidemic virus. Other alkaloids also help integrate organ functions so that you may observe an overall increase in strength and immunity.
With the outbreak of the Coronavirus, there have been several attempts to find vaccines. While we wait for Germany to test its vaccine, the United States also came up with one, but results are still not observed. In such a dire need for some cure, perhaps kratom can provide strength to the immune system. The essential ‘weapon’ that anyone can have against an epidemic is a healthy immune system, and that is possible with organic substances that make our organ systems better.
If your kratom vendor is marketing the products by saying that it has Chloroquine, they may be wrong and spreading false claims.
The quarantine and online shopping
One reliable way of preventing exposure to the COVID-19 is to remain indoors and reduce social interaction as much as possible. During this time of self-quarantine, you must eat well and build immunity
Ordering online can be the best option as it maintains your isolation, and you can use this time to build upon personal strength. However, there are some necessary steps to avoid Coronavirus.
You must not expose yourself to the bacteria that may be present on the parcel you receive. Similarly, vendors must also ensure that the products remain free from bacteria and are transported by clean and sanitized hands!
A proper diet, supplements, and strong immunity
In a nutshell, all you can do to build resistance against the virus is to remain isolated and work upon your body systems to improve health. An excellent organic substance will ensure the enhancement of your organ functions, which leads to better immunity. All-natural elements are slow but improve health in more than one way. A proper intake of vitamins and minerals may boost immunity, and you will be able to fight off any chances of Coronavirus in your area.
How can vendors prevent the spread of Coronavirus?
We know that this highly contagious virus can spread through touch, which means that all vendors must ensure that the products they are selling are clean and handled after sanitizing the manufacturing units.
- Workers who touch kratom leaves should wear gloves.
- Supervision teams must use hand sanitizers and feel all products after disinfecting.
- All products must be kept in clean and sanitized warehouses.
- Packaging and stocking must be hygienic and sanitized.
- Some necessary steps can ensure lower chances of COVID-19, as cleaner hands and masking of faces is the primary way to stop the spread.
- Manufacturers and online shops must ensure that all workers are screened, and there is no chance of the COVID-19 near products.
- Since the online shops in the United States use external shipping services, the carriage of parcels by clean individuals must be a priority.
- All packages and boxes must be packed and disinfected, and then carried by individuals who wear gloves and masks.
- Another significant step to avoid the spread of Coronavirus is that the shipping service must engage healthy and energetic individuals, who take all precautions before holding the parcels.
How can users ensure safety from Coronavirus?
As you receive your parcel on your doorstep, you can embark on the journey to a healthy immune system, but there are a few steps you must take to ensure safety.
- Handle the received parcel after using hand sanitizer.
- Use disinfectant to keep your home clean so that the bacteria cannot penetrate your haven.
- Wear masks and gloves to prevent exposure to bacteria.
- Use sterilized jars and glass tumblers to store products.
Coronavirus has taken the whole world by storm and we see a worldwide emergency. However, during this time of self-isolation and quarantine, all individuals must ensure that they follow the guidelines to prevent exposure to this virus.
