Below is a repeat of an import alert, regarding a LEGAL plant called Kratom. They go on to say that Kratom is dangerous and has no beneficial use.
They tell us we cannot make any health claims, especially vendors. However, they get away with making false claims about Kratom, saying it causes respiratory depression. Dr. Jack Henningfield has scientifically proven that Kratom does NOT cause respiratory depression. Here is the 8-factor analysis report(s) proving this.

Below is an excerpt from the FDA’s disinformation campaign, regarding a red alert placed on Kratom, in the United States.
‘Furthermore, based on FDA’s review of the publicly available information regarding kratom, there does not appear to be a history of use or other evidence of safety establishing that kratom will reasonably be expected to be safe as a dietary ingredient. In fact, the scientific literature disclosed serious concerns regarding the toxicity of kratom in multiple organ systems. Consumption of kratom can lead to a number of health impacts, including respiratory depression, nervousness, agitation, aggression, sleeplessness, hallucinations, delusions, tremors, loss of libido, constipation, skin hyperpigmentation, nausea, vomiting, and severe withdrawal signs and symptoms. In the absence of a history of use or other evidence of safety establishing that kratom will reasonably be expected to be safe as a dietary ingredient, kratom and kratom-containing dietary supplements and bulk dietary ingredients are adulterated under section 402(f)(1)(B) of the Act [21 U.S.C. 342(f)(1)(B)], because they contain a new dietary ingredient for which there is inadequate information to provide reasonable assurance that such ingredient does not present a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury. https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/cms_ia/importalert_1137.html?fbclid=IwAR2skNnd2jAGl63NBOtLHbkEkE4nGEbSpsnPIGZPDAQzd99CoM-lqHnMIQU —
But, as you can see here in the ‘Faces of Kratom’ literally, they are making false claims and lying about this plant. Kratom does not cause horrific side-effects as mentioned above, nor does it destroy the health and emotional well-being of others. Here are the testimonies of Kratom consumers, the ‘Faces of Kratom’ ~ https://southeastbeautifulkratom.com/the-faces-of-kratom/
They go on to say.. ‘When marketed as a dietary ingredient, FDA also considers kratom to be a new dietary ingredient under section 413(d) of the Act [21 U.S.C. 350b(d)] because, to the best of the agency’s knowledge, there is no information demonstrating that this substance was marketed as a dietary ingredient in the United States before October 15, 1994.’ 💔 https://g.co/kgs/9XzptK
The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 is what they are referring to. Regardless of whether or not we have a receipt of sale before the year 1994, Kratom deserves to be classified as a dietary supplement. Kratom IS a tea leaf, derived from the tropical evergreen, the Rubiaceae. Derived from Southeast Asia, it IS a food that has been consumed literally for centuries.
The FDA likes to take advantage of the little guy and bullies our community, relentlessly. We are a group of people who are simply trying to survive in the healthiest way possible. Kratom allows that to happen. Kratom is the lifeline for over 25 million Americans, along with their families. Please when you read this blog, take a moment to let that sink in. The FDA controls a very big portion of our lives. I refuse to let them control my mind, also. Don’t let them brainwash you into thinking this plant has no beneficial use.
They continue to ignore the debunking of deaths, the scientific proof that Kratom is safe, and the thousands upon thousands of testimonies.
They continue to seize Kratom shipments, denying people of their paid product. They are causing vendors and customers horrific stress and money lost, due to their unsubstantiated claims.
Below is another excerpt from the FDA’s red alert, which states they are detaining Kratom before even examining it. I understand why they would seize adulterated Kratom but they are going after it across the board. LAST TIME I CHECKED Kratom WAS LEGAL IN THIS COUNTRY YET the FDA is seizing uncontaminated Kratom like it was cocaine. We ARE ALLOWED to consume Kratom LEGALLY. Therefore, treat it as such!!! Stop condemning this plant as if it is an illegal substance, when it’s NOT. This is an absolute disgrace in my opinion. This is not a free country.
Import Alert Name:
‘DETENTION WITHOUT PHYSICAL EXAMINATION OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS AND BULK DIETARY INGREDIENTS THAT ARE OR CONTAIN MITRAGYNA SPECIOSA OR KRATOM’
