Akuamma Seed Powder

Native to the western African nations of Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Congo, Zaire, and Cameroon, the powdered seeds of the Akuamma (or Picralima nitida) tree have been used for generations as a way to relax, relieve discomfort, and promote sleep. Now available in a fresh, dried powder, we are pleased to offer our customers this little-known ethnobotanical in four different sizes and also in the form of whole Akuamma seeds.

Our Akuamma Seed Powder: Traditional Harvesting Techniques for Maximum Potency

Even though it is technically a tree, the shape of Picralima nitida is actually more like a bush with its short and dense appearance. This reduced height makes it easy for harvesters to pick the fruits and split them open, extracting the seeds by hand and spreading them out in the sun to dry. Once these dried seeds are shipped to our facility, we then grind them into the consistency of powdered sugar and package the powder immediately to capture the maximum freshness and benefits of Akuamma powder.

The Science Behind Akuamma’s Effects

After centuries of use in African folk medicine, research is now showing that Akuamma contains powerful alkaloids that impact the “mu” opioid receptors in the brain, thereby reducing sensations associated with pain. In fact, the primary alkaloid in Akuamma seed powder, akuammine, has a very similar chemical structure to mitragynine, one of the two primary alkaloids of kratom powder.

Explore the Best Bioactive Herbs from Around the World at Kratora

Kratora started out as a company where customers in the United States and abroad could buy fresh kratom. As time passed, however, our team soon discovered that kratom alternatives, like Akuamma powder, provide similar benefits to kratom without being subjected to the same restrictions at a state and federal level.

    I have to say it doesn’t take nearly as much as I expected. It’s a nice change, although slightly different from Kratom.. but in a good way
