Is it true that Kratom can stave off Covid-19?
Right now, I think we could all use some good news.
This is a really cool article not only for the kratom industry but also for helping ward off Covid-19 (Novel Coronavirus).
A doctor at the Tanjungpura University in Indonesia recently gave an interview about “the diversity of tropical plants in West Kalimantan (that) have a lot of compounds that can strengthen the immune system and ward off coronavirus” (Lalu, 20). Dr. Thamrin Usman is a professor of chemistry and chemical analysis.
Among many other Tropical Plants from West Kalimantan, Dr. Usman makes it clear that kratom (mitragyna Speciosa) contains a good amount of compounds that can strengthen the immune system and keep the coronavirus at bay.
Kratom, which hails from the same plant family as coffee, has been used for its benefits since the 19th century. Kratom contains a special compound known as chloroquine or Cq, that research shows is powerfully combative against the coronavirus. There are many viruses that can be harmful to humans and Cq could be a type of master key that protects against all of them.
“By looking at the chemical structure of chloroquine molecules that contain secondary and tertiary amine compound structures, it can be considered to use kratom leaves because mitragynine compounds in kratom are actually secondary and tertiary amines” (Lalu, 20), Dr. Usman is quoted as saying.
Other immune-boosting nutrients that Dr. Usman recommends in light of the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) crisis include vitamin C, which has a “warming” effect on the body in much the same way as ginger and other spices. He also points to virgin coconut oil as yet another powerful antiviral.
“This material has been proven to boost the body’s immune system” (Lalu, 20) he says about all of these natural remedies.
In a very short time, the Coronavirus has spread over several continents and continues to prove how serious it is. In multiple geographical locations, we are struggling to contain the transmissibility of the virus. By definition, it is a pandemic that we are dealing with. In times like these, it is important to plan for the worst. But, please keep in mind we are all in this together. Taking care of each other and being kind to one another is important too.
Excerpt From Pontianak
PONTIANAK – The action of buying masks, sanitizing hands and vitamins or herbal medicine has caused anxiety in the community. The people of West Kalimantan actually need not worry about running out of these goods. Because the diversity of tropical plants in West Kalimantan have a lot of compounds that can strengthen the immune system and ward off corona. This was revealed by Professor of Chemistry at Tanjungpura University Prof. Dr. Thamrin Usman to Pontianak Post, yesterday (5/3).
“Our biodiversity is very superior. To increase the body’s immune power, usually with Vitamin C which gives a warm effect such as ginger and other spices. Whereas to ward off Corona can use virgin coconut oil or virgin coconut oil (VCO). This material has been proven to increase the body’s immune system ( immune booster)” (Lalu, 20) he said.
In addition, he said it was reported from researchers in Wuhan that Chloroquine (Cq) can be used for the treatment of patients with Covid 19. The content of the Cq molecule is in kratom leaves that thrive in West Kalimantan. “By looking at the chemical structure of Chloroquine molecules that contain secondary and tertiary amine compound structures, it can be considered to use kratom leaves. Because the Mitragynine compound in kratom is actually a secondary and tertiary amine compound” (Lalu, 20).
In addition, the solution to the limited antiseptic on the market, Thamrin suggested using betel water. It can also be clove oil and lemongrass oil. Cheap perfume that has ethanol can be sprayed onto the hands as an antiseptic. This is because the chemical structure of the corona 19 virus is composed of lipoprotein compounds so for safety of the skin on the outside of the human body. As for the mask, you can use scented tissue that is folded like a fan. Then given a rubber band. (ars)
In conclusion, It’s amazing that this plant so many of us believe in, that so many of us fight to keep legal, can be the key to one of the worst viruses of our lifetime. We are still unlocking the true power of Kratom. This is just another reason why the plant should be further studied. We hope all of our friends, family, and patrons stay healthy out there.
