Are you enraged over your last Kratom round that failed to deliver the spark and satisfaction? Or you didn’t feel any improvement or relief in the health condition even after taking a sufficient Kratom dose?
All this despite spending thick wads of money to buy high-quality Kratom Product!!! Well, well, well. Calm your nerves down! This may very well be because you consumed Kratom at the wrong hour of the day. Now, sit back and take a deep breath. Your Kratom isn’t fake or unpure!
The history of Kratom usage can be traced back to medieval times by the ancient farming communities of Southeast Asia as a popular herbal remedy. It was believed to possess magical healing powers. And, if used correctly at the right time, the plant promises treatment to a plethora of medical complications.
So, what is the ideal time for Kratom intake? To answer that, we first need to understand the relationship and balance between food, appetite and Kratom.
Learning the Kratom Basics
a) Kratom and Food
Do you know that every bite of food you intake binds to the receptors in your stomach?
Similarly, Kratom too, will interact with the stomach receptors before being absorbed by the blood. This ultimately implies that if your stomach is already full, it will be difficult for Kratom to make its way and connect with these chemicals.
The claim is further supported by ample of researches and studies confirming that the reaction of Kratom is indeed slow when taken with or immediately after meals. Also, the impact will be much short enduring, and users wouldn’t feel the pleasure for long.
b) Kratom for Appetite Regulation
Do you know Kratom is much sought-after for its appetite regulation properties?
Yup! The plant is a versatile one acting as both, an appetite stimulant as well as reducer – so people with either motive can benefit from it.
Now here comes the tricky question; what if one is actually consuming Kratom to lower or increase their diet? Is mixing it with food then advisable?
Unfortunately, the answer is No.
And the science is pretty much the same. The impact and benefits of Kratom will only surface when taken at the right time.
So, it is advisable to consume it before meals to reduce diet (as this will allow you to feel full), and, take it after meals to increase your hunger and stimulate diet.
Our Golden Tip: Always consume Kratom at the right time, the right condition and the right dose to make the most of your experience!
Best Time to Take Your Daily Dose of Kratom
Well, we thus know so far that Kratom and food are pretty much like two enemies that don’t go well with each other.
Therefore, the best way to gain the optimal results the miraculous herb has to offer is taking it on an empty stomach. These include:
- First Thing In the Morning
- Two to Three hours before eating.
- Three to Four hours after your last meal
Even though all users react and tolerate Kratom differently, the herb will usually start working within 30 minutes and lasts till 5 to 7 hours. In contrast, if taken on a full stomach, the onset of the effect will be delayed till an hour and a half.
Also, the effects will be at its peak till 2 to 3 hours and then eventually subside. However, we won’t recommend beginners to try Kratom on an empty stomach. They must essentially take a small filler or an appetizer before. That’s precisely because their body is not well tolerated to the substance and so might trigger unwanted side effects.
In addition, the mechanism of Kratom is also influenced by the way it is ingested. Following are the best timings for the traditional ways of consuming Kratom:
1. Kratom Tea: Just like any other tea, the prime time for this herbal tea is in the morning or evening.
2. Kratom Capsules and Powder: You can take your daily dose of Kratom before every meal.
Note: Capsules takes significantly more time to get absorbed by the body.
3. Kratom Smoothie or Drink: Are you a fitness freak? If you are nodding your head, then perhaps you can consider adding Kratom in your pre-workout beverage or energy drink.
Consuming Kratom Twice or More Times in a Day
We don’t really recommend readers to consume Kratom a lot every day. Even a single dose a day is sufficient to give the much-needed boost to your mood and energy levels. However, exception implies when prescribed by a doctor or your physician for medical purposes.
Nevertheless, if you are planning to use Kratom a couple of times every day, then make sure the doses are well-planned and neither close to each other nor coincide with your meals. As such, the best schedule for multiple Kratom doses is:
- Early Morning Kratom Tea
- Evening Dose of Kratom
- Night Dose of Kratom (for insomnia and sleep disorders)
Regardless of the above reference guide, we would urge our users to limit their dosage to once or at most twice a day to achieve their health and wellness goals.
Building Tolerance and Counteracting its Development
Little Piece of Warning: Taking Kratom more than once a day, means you are increasing your body tolerance.
Rapid body tolerance is alarming and may pose a threat to your life. Therefore, keep the frequency as well as the quantity as low as possible.
To counteract the tolerance build-up, it is suggested to keep changing the strains and product type. Avoid repeating the variety until three days to a week.
Myth-buster: In contrary to popular belief, users do NOT need to increase the dose every time to feel the same effects.
The Bottom Line
Your Health and Safety Comes First!
To unleash the strongest Mitragyna Speciosa impact, the right timing and condition are imperative. This will also reflect the quality of your Kratom. Even though it is best to consume the plant on an empty stomach, the habit must not reach a point where you start skipping meals.
Remember, Kratom consumption only after combined with a balanced diet is key to a happy and healthy life.
Also, if you plan to consume a large dose of Kratom, then you will be much better off by breaking the dose into two instead of consuming all at once. Believe us; your body will thank you for it! However, the dose must be increased gradually after your body has built up a tolerance.
Finally, you must ALWAYS consult your health practitioner before starting any new Kratom supplement and seek their guidance on dosing.
