Discover the Benefits of Akuamma Seed Powder from Western Africa
If you like kratom, then you are sure to love our all-natural Akuamma powder. This kratom alternative comes from West Africa and contains soothing alkaloids with similar effects to kratom.
Akuamma, known by its botanical name Picralima nitida and internationally as “vincamajoridine,” is a short and dense tree that looks like a shrub and grows in the wild of Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Congo, Zaire, and Cameroon. To harvest the seeds, locals split open the fruits and remove the seeds by hand before drying the collected seeds in the sun.
Akuamma seeds naturally contain alkaloids that stimulate the Mu opioid receptors (MOR) in the brain. Akuamma Seed Powder is prized by locals for its soothing properties. As with kratom, many of the primary alkaloids in this African plant are named after the plant itself: akuammine, akuammidine, akuammicine, akuammigine, pseudo-akuammigine, and pericine.
Despite the geographical distance between Africa and Southeast Asia, Akuamma and kratom have more in common than we might expect. The chemical structure of akuammine (the primary alkaloid in Akuamma powder) is similar to that of mitragynine—one of the main alkaloids in Mitragyna speciosa.
Traditional Uses of Akuamma Seed Powder
This ethnobotanical plant has traditionally been used as a natural remedy to provide relief for temporary discomfort and an aid for relaxation. In addition, its properties may assist in helping to promote sleep. Akuamma powder is typically applied in capsule or whole seed form, due to its bitter inclination.
