Scientific Study Confirms That Kratom Use Does Not Decrease Testosterone Nor Decrease Fertility, In Addition To Confirming That Kratom Causes No Changes To Blood-Related And Biochemical Parameters
A scientific study titled ‘Assessment of gonadotropins and testosterone hormone levels in regular Mitragyna speciosa(Korth.) users‘ studied 19 long term Kratom users in order to determine if Kratom use has any impact on the levels of critical hormones.
Essentially, over the years there have been sporadic posts on the internet about Kratom users who were concerned that Kratom was lowering their testosterone levels, and blaming Kratom for their loss of hair and loss of sex drive.
After fully analyzing the blood of these 19 long term Kratom users, it was definitively found that Kratom does not cause any decrease in testosterone levels. Therefore, it seems the occasional posts about this issue on the internet are from people who were losing their hair or sex drive for other reasons.
Further, this scientific study also analyzed levels of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, and found that long term Kratom use does not decrease the levels of these hormones either. Those two hormones are critical for fertility, and therefore based on this data Kratom does not cause a decrease in fertility.
Beyond that, the scientists analyzed the full spectrum of properties in the blood, and found that long term Kratom use does not cause any change in the blood’s characteristics, such as blood cell counts, protein levels, etc. Also, the scientists found that the levels of various biochemicals in the blood was not impacted by Kratom use.
Thus, the speculation that Kratom interferes with testosterone levels or fertility can be laid to rest, since this study has confirmed that even long term Kratom use does not cause changes in testosterone, nor any changes in critical fertility hormones, in addition to finding that there were no abnormalities in the properties of the blood or other biochemicals.
This is just further evidence that Kratom truly is a safe supplement, unlike most prescription medicines which cause all sorts of changes to the body that can lead to complications.
