Zaza Red 24Ct – Extra Strength Tianeptine Capsules are ideal for those seeking an edge in studying, focusing at work or just relaxing after a long day. These capsules contain a 700mg blend of tianeptine powder and other ingredients that help you stay alert and focus without the crash of caffeine.
A kratom product called Zaza Red is making waves in headshops across the country. While it’s marketed as a kratom capsule, the truth is much more complicated—and potentially dangerous. It’s a combination of kratom with the drug Phenibut, which has an extremely risky reputation when taken alone and even more so when combined with kratom. It’s also sold in cheap tinted bottles that are neither child-proof nor idiot-proof, allowing anyone to easily access the capsules inside.
The company that produces Zaza Red is M&J Distributors, a California-based retail supplier with a broad reach. Its products are stocked at most headshops in the United States. While the brand’s online reputation is less than stellar, it still has a loyal following.
In fact, it’s the same company that markets a kratom extract called Zaza Gold that’s been linked to an alarming number of cases of toxic leukoencephalopathy in young people. The condition, which causes abnormal white blood cell counts, is typically associated with polydrug abuse and can be fatal if not treated. A recent Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report from the CDC explains the problem in detail. Tianeptine, the chemical found in the pills branded as Zaza, Zaza or Tianna Red, hits opioid receptors in the brain and can cause addiction, even to low doses. The drug, which is not FDA-approved in the U.S, is referred to by some as “gas station heroin” because it’s often sold at American gas stations.
