Kratom alternatives #3 (Corydalis)

Kratom alternatives post #3

Greetings kratom connoisseurs!  Today's post will highlight the benefits of an herb known as Corydalis of the poppy family Papaveraceae, also known as the leading analgesic & sedative of the East. 

Corydalis contains isoquinoline & berberine type alkaloids, which are the backbone molecules that higher ordered opiates are based off of.  Because of the difference in structure between these and those found in Papaver somniferum, the alkaloids found in Corydalis are non-narcotic, do not mind to the opioid receptors, yet somehow still relieve pain. 

These compounds and this herb are believed to work by intercepting the electrical signals that modulate the pain response. The herb has a blocking action on histamine, dopamine, and adrenal receptors, eliciting a calming effect that can reduce spasms and relax muscles.  In addition to these immediate effects, the compounds in corydalis can be utilized by the body to create opioid type compounds.  In published studies, individuals taking these isoquinoline type compounds, specifically reticuline, had higher levels of morphine in their blood, even without ever having taken morphine!  This will not cause a failure of a urinalysis, or even addiction, but instead highlights how consumption of base nutrients and molecular backbones can lead to the body producing some of the same compounds that some medicinal herbs can produce!  This means that over time, corydalis can help the body produce its own opioids!  Schedule that, DEA!

A typical dose of corydalis is 4-8 grams, the powder is very dense and 1-2 teaspoons of the herb is plenty.  The powder is also available, and because of the density almost a gram can be fit into each capsule.  We sell the cut root for tea or self powdering, and the powder.  We do not recommend extracts of this herb due to the wide spread adulteration of products in the supplement industry.  Get to know the raw herb first, and from there try to find an extract that is suitable should you wish.

In Summary, Corydalis greatly relaxes muscles & strengthens the bodies resistance to pain signals. Corydalis improves troubled sleep, reduces hypertension, treats headaches, soothes sore joints, and has many positive effects on helping the body recover from certain serious illnesses.
