I am impressed with several things about the Kratom.
I have noticed that my resting heart rate is 4 beats slower per minute. My blood pressure is lower by 10 points, my sleep patterns have improved. I am sleeping 7-8 hours, rather than 5-6. I am no longer restless during sleep, I sleep deeper and I do not toss as much.
I have a device in my room (part of a Kickstarter campaign) which monitors my movements using a sensor on my pillow, and a sensor to pick up on any sounds or movement. My number of movements are down to 8, previously 20. Also, the sensor has told me that the amount of noise I make has lowered by 20%. The number of "sleep starts" is down to 2. In fact, I only can recall 1 of them from last night. Normally when I wake up from a sleep start I never really go back to bed. Since I've started using Kratom, I always go back to sleep.
I have noticed that I feel more refreshed in the mornings. I have noticed a reduction in my appetite, not that I am starving myself, but the need to snack in between meals is lower. No weight loss worth mentioning.
The pain level varied the first few days. I tried 1 leaf the first day and I had good results but it was short lived. I then took 2 leaves and it sustained me for the rest of the day.
The following days I did two leaves, which was OK, but I had pain return before I went home from work which was a 4 hour window.
The last two days I've used three leaves in a smoothie, with fruit and veggies. I deveined them, blended them, then used a strainer to filter the fiber. The main relief was very good and there was a minor burst of energy.
I've actually been debating going on a short run, which I haven't had a desire to do for twenty years. Although, I think I'll start with walking and work my way up.
