These secondary substances include the Uncaria alkaloids, epicatechin, mitragynine as well as ajmalicine. These substances allow kratom to have an extreme advantage over opioids that are currently being used. They have a host of different medicinal properties, such as controlling antioxidant activities.

Other properties include cardiovascular benefits, providing users with the capability to fight off a host of bacterial and viral infections. Moreover, they act as immune stimulants, thereby boosting the immune system and keeping the user healthy. In short, these benefits allow kratom to have a plethora of advantages as compared to opioid narcotics within various applications.

This allows it to be used as a replacement for the substance codeine, in order to act as a cough suppressant. The ability to enhance the immune system will offer numerous benefits in helping individuals fight off a host of infections that lead to coughing and flu or fever.
