More Potent Kratom Made stronger

For starters, you get more enjoyable aromas for the better part of the day. Who wouldn’t want to be in a swell mood for the entire day? Secondly, you end up requiring less kratom daily, which conserves your supply and saves you money.

If this is a feat you’d like to accomplish, kratom potentiators can help you. Kratom potentiators are a dime a dozen if not more and they can significantly change your kratom experience.

The following are some of the legit ways that are warranted to elevate your kratom pills to a whole new level.

Taking Kratom on an Empty Stomach

This is probably Kratom 101, so let’s get it out of the way first. If you are not already doing this, you’ll discover that taking kratom on an empty stomach practically guarantees a more powerful effect.

On an empty stomach, your kratom doesn’t have to fight to be absorbed in your system along with food and enzymes. allow an hour or two to between taking your kratom and eating vegetables. This is why you often see medicines meant to be taken on an empty stomach being recommended to be taken an hour before food or two hours after a meal. The same logic applies to kratom here.

Caffeine, Espresso

Many kratom sites like www.bio2008.org will tell you that coffee plus kratom equals gold. This is nothing but the truth. However, it may be a bit unclear. For the sake of semantics, let’s call it caffeine.

Caffeine can be found in various food products. Whether you use a food containing caffeine or a caffeine extract, it can boost the effects of kratom significantly. According to the website, www.eatpakd.com , When caffeine is combined with kratom, it can enhance both energy and focus. Caffeine also helps to reduce the lethargy associated with taking some kratom strains.

Additionally, most kratom researchers advise that it is best to use caffeine with a kratom strain known for enhancing energy and alertness. White Maeng Da kratom is an excellent example. Nevertheless, you must be careful with this, as too much stimulation could prove dangerous.


Did you know that Magnesium is an excellent way to reduce kratom tolerance? See, Magnesium is an antagonist of the same receptors responsible for causing kratom tolerance.

As you may know, one of the drawbacks of using kratom regularly is that it may cause tolerance build-up, meaning that you will require larger doses to achieve the same result. However, Magnesium can fend that off.

Using that logic, imagine what would happen if you used Magnesium and kratom simultaneously.

Arguably, this could be the best combination of all, after mixing kratom with Phenibut (see below).

Anecdotal reports show excellent results when using kratom with Magnesium Taurate. The Taurine in this compound makes magnesium readily absorbable. Medically, Taurine is used to treat patients with congestive heart failure to slow down their heartbeats.

However, it can also help a healthy individual to achieve a more relaxed, less anxious, less stressful kratom experience.

Kratom and Phenibut Suplememts

On its own, phenibut is an excellent nootropic as it helps to boost mood when mixed with kratom, alleviate anxiety, and enhances one’s social skills. With that in mind, picture what would happen if it was used together with kratom. A good recipe is found at www.getmapper.com/health-sciences/kratom-research-grant/ Let’s see, mix two of the most effective legal mood-enhancing compounds with your kratom? You’ll be in for a wild ride.

Grapefruit Juice with sugar added

Grapefruit is one of the most widely used kratom potentiators in the kratom community. This juice has an enzyme that allows the body to absorb the active compounds in kratom more easily. Well, technically, it slows down the process through which kratom alkaloids reach the liver, allowing it more time in the system.

Consequently, pink grapefruit juice prolongs the effects of kratom and also makes the latter’s effects twice as stronger.

Besides being an effective kratom potentiator, according to www.fitmomintraining.com/supplements/things-you-need-to-know-about-how-to-take-kratom/,the taste of pink grapefruit juice complements kratom tea superbly.

However, what makes this substance standout as a potentiator is that it is loaded with amino acids and vitamin C; it strengthens the immune system, making the body less susceptible to common illnesses.

Black Pepper and salt

Black pepper is considered a universal potentiator owing to its ability to increase the absorption of any substance. This is why it is included as an ingredient in numerous dietary supplements.

In case you are wondering, here’s how black pepper potentiates kratom and other substances. Black pepper contains an active ingredient known as Bioperine; it is a bioavailability enhancer that prevents active compounds from being metabolized too soon.

Usually, adding a pinch of black pepper to your cup of kratom tea should be enough.

However, do note that Bioperine can aggravate the side effects of any medication. Therefore, if you’ve been on treatment lately, it would be best to consider using another potentiator.

Turmeric supplements

The secret behind the potentiating effects of turmeric lies in it being an MAO inhibitor. As a result, it can inhibit the breakdown of crucial brain neurotransmitters, including dopamine.

This substance prolongs kratom’s euphoric effects which may be beneficial, according to www.msujbsl.com, depending on your intention for consuming the herb. Similarly, your kratom strain of choice partly determines the extent of the improvements.

As a bonus, turmeric can also increase the shelf life of your kratom powder. You’ll have to mix the two and store them in an airtight container.

Unfortunately, this substance is not for everyone as it can cause adverse reactions when taken with anti-depressants. Likewise, it also tends to thin the blood, which is why it shouldn’t be taken with anticoagulants.

Cayenne peppers

Quite a day for pepper strains isn’t it? Well, cayenne pepper is an intriguing potentiator. Unlike black pepper, cayenne does not derive its value from prolonging the duration of effects. Instead, it potentiates kratom effects by boosting its effects.

While you can add a dash of cayenne pepper to your kratom tea, the most common approach is to mix it with dry kratom powder or leaves.

Some individuals may not tolerate spicy stuff well and should proceed carefully when using this potentiator.

On the other hand, cayenne pepper is an excellent way to mask the taste associated with kratom.

Watercress weeds

Watercress is an excellent way to potentiate your kratom if your primary purpose is to receive stimulation from the herb. The minerals present in watercress bind with Mitragynine, the alkaloid responsible for stimulant effects.

Even if you’re into strains that offer sedation and relaxation, watercress could still be useful. After all, it also increases the duration of the kratom effects.

Valerian Root

Interestingly, the benefits of valerian root somewhat complement those of kratom. For instance, this botanical helps to fight insomnia, reduce anxiety, and to alleviate pain.

When you add valerian root supplements to your favorite kratom recipe, it increases the levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Subsequently, GABA contributes to a reduction in brain activity, which helps to reduce insomnia and anxiety.

Besides, it also potentiates the ability of kratom to alleviate pain. In this case, it targets the NF-Kappa B, a protein complex that plays a crucial role in easing neuropathic pain.

Cat’s Claw supplements

Ever heard of this herb? Cat’s claw is commonly used as a natural supplement for a variety of benefits. It is native to South America.

Unlike most of the kratom potentiators on this list, this plant does not follow a unique mechanism to boost kratom effects.

Cat’s Claw serves this purpose because it contains alkaloids similar to those of kratom. As a result, it manages to increase both the strength and duration of kratom effects, regardless of the variety.
