Weight loss by Kratom is one of the most discussed topics of this year. How many people do you know that have used Kratom for weight loss? Probably none. But quick research on Kratom has nominated it to be one best herbal weight loss agent.

It is difficult to separate the facts from fiction when there is so much random information available on the Internet. Sadly, not everything that relates to natural weight loss is real.

You may never find anyone recommending Kratom for weight loss. But most of the researchers approves Kratom’s role in health, fitness and fat burning.

The alkaloid rich leaves of Kratom have the best properties of South Asian soils. It is a perfect combination of alkaloids, which gives particular benefits, i.e., pain killing, energy boosting, nootropic benefit and others.

Weight loss from Kratom is a reality, but many people don’t consider it as a health benefit. Most of the users believe weight loss from Kratom to be a drawback. But with the careful administration, Kratom can be an adequate remedy for weight loss.


What is the connection between Kratom and weight loss?
Weight loss is not the only reason to use Kratom. People have been using Kratom for its therapeutic benefits for centuries.

It is even documented for the productive role in pain management, stress relief, anxiolytic effect energy enhancing and nootropic effect.

Many users report a significant drop in weight by using Kratom regularly. It is followed by appetite suppression that reduces the daily calorie intake of the user. The result is a natural weight loss, without spending hours at the gym.

A report from “Obesity Reviews” on the herbal medicine for energy intake suppression explains that obesity medicines are not very successful products.

All the drugs, which are characterized as effective either synthetic or natural mostly, meet controversies. It is due to the severe effects, which make the user suffer more health problems.

It has lead to the pharmaceutical companies to struggle on herbal, safe weight loss products.

The target compounds are mostly taken from plants as the first choice.This leads to a situation, which explains why Kratom is under consideration as a weight loss product these days.

Research on Kratom further explains its role in fat loss. A research study published in “Fitoterapia” suggests the role of Kratom on food and water intake on animal subjects.

The research is a collaboration of Department of Physiology, Faculty of Science, Prince of Songkla University (PSU), Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharmaceutical Botany, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Southern Botanical Garden in Classical Thai Literature, in Thailand.

It tells that an acute administration of Kratom extract in 45mg/kg and 50mg/kg helped in a dose-dependent decrease in food and water intake in rats. The results are a proof of Kratom’s role in appetite suppression, which aids in weight loss.

As per the research study, the prolonged suppression effects were evident at 50mg/kg extract for 60 days (2 months) consecutively. The long-term use also showed promising results in weight management.

“Global Journal of Pharmacology” published research in 2014 on effects of Kratom extract on various systems of the body.

It characterizes Mitragynine, the primary alkaloid of Kratom as the soul of Kratom and reason for most of the Kratom effects.

The research studied the effects of Kratom on the central nervous system, gastrointestinal system, and urinary system. The acute and chronic extract showed appetite suppression and reduction in weight gain.

Another study from “Journal of Ethnopharmacology” also reported the case in which Kratom reduced the defecation frequency and the overall fecal weight during castor oil induced diarrhea in animal models.


How does Kratom work for weight loss?
The weight loss plan with Kratom works through several means. Some of them are a direct and others are indirect ways to make the weight loss real.

These include appetite suppression, reducing food cravings and prevent gaining the weight back in both direct and indirect means. Following is a brief description of how it works.


Appetite suppression
Most of the Kratom users can verify that some strains of Kratom have appetite-suppressing effects. This effect is noticeable and visible after a few uses of Kratom and gets intense as the usage increases.

This appetite suppression is better as compared to the diet pills and weight loss supplements. Amazingly, Kratom doesn’t sour your stomach or damage your systems.

It drops your weight along with other usual Kratom benefits, i.e., opiate withdrawal. There is no adverse effect of Kratom, which is common if you are using any diet pills.

It simply will make you less hungry than you usually felt before. It makes the food choices and calorie intake better and eating less will result in less weight gain.

Using Kratom is the easiest way if you are planning to shed a couple of pounds without any extra effort.


Reducing food cravings
The most challenging part of a restricted diet is the food cravings. Having so much variety of food around you can make you crave for it.

The most common causes of food cravings are associated with fast food, desserts, candy, pastries, or refined carbohydrates.

The Kratom community members notice that Kratom helps to enjoy food taste without food cravings.

Many users share their experiences on online forums saying that Kratom dramatically makes them feel less hungry and uninterested in tempting foods.

Not just this, but Kratom also helps in overcoming opiate and alcohol craving in users.


Indirect Effects
Appetite suppression and craving control are only two direct effects of Kratom helping in losing weight. There is something, which indirectly helps this process. It is how you take Kratom.

You may have read on different forums that Kratom works best on an empty stomach. The fact that regular Kratom usage brings noticeable changes is strengthened if you take it on an empty stomach.

Regularity, consistency and the right way to use Kratom are some of the factors, which indirectly help Kratom alkaloids to work on the fat breakdown.


Using Kratom for Weight Loss
How much effective the Kratom induced weight loss can have only one answer. It all depends on what and how much you are taking it.

The two most important factors are selecting the most effective Kratom strain and the safe dosage design for daily use.

Role of different strains and types of Kratom on weight loss
types of KratomYou need to pick the most useful strains of Kratom in a form that is suitable for your body. The best options on Kratom that trigger in fat meltdown are Thai, Maeng Da, and white- vein strains.

Thai strains are the most effective for reducing appetite, as they are highly stimulating and energetic otherwise.

So if you start using Thai strains, you will not feel hungry, but there will not be any weakness.

The amazing Kratom will make you energetic, active and fresh even without eating less than usual. This process sheds weight like anything.

Maeng Da is also useful for this purpose but make sure that you are using a strain that is stimulating and not sedating. White veins are also helpful, but varieties other than Thai are not highly energetic.

If weight loss is the ultimate goal for using Kratom, avoid using red vein Kratom, Indo, Borneo and Bali strains.

All of them are sedating and helpful in pains, which sometimes increase appetite. It is highly undesirable for a weight watcher to get. Always prefer white or Thai strains for losing weight by Kratom.

Best tips to accelerate the functions of Kratom alkaloids
Kratom helps in some conditions including weight loss. But there are a few things that account for its performance. For the sole purpose of weight loss, try to use Kratom with following guidelines.

Always use it early morning on an empty stomach.
Take plenty of water with Kratom.
Typically taken before breakfast as the first meal of the day.
Never combine it with weight loss pills.
Kratom works just right for the body. But if you will take extra parameters for making it work better, it will never disappoint you.


Is it safe to use Kratom for losing weight?
Of course, Kratom is safe for human consumption. Some people call the weight loss by Kratom as an unwanted side effect. It gives rise to the question that if Kratom is safe for weight loss or not.

The answer is yes, it is safe but you should not use Kratom only for losing weight. User reviews tell that there is a wide range of health benefits of Kratom.

Weight loss is just one of them. So instead of using it for only one reason, try to get all far-reaching benefits. Focusing only on losing weight may lead to a mismanaged Kratom use.

It may also turn out to be a non-enjoyable experience. That is why the comprehensive benefits of Kratom deserve to be enjoyed with full zeal and zest.


How much dosage of Kratom works for you?
dosage of KratomDosage plays the crucial role in determining weight loss. The ideal dosage varies from person to person, as every individual is unique. The best dosage that works for most of the users is the moderate dosage.

However, it is better to start from the lowest dose to check your body’s responses. A small dose is between 1 gram to 2 grams. Moderate dosage is between 2 grams to 5 grams. High dose is usually over 5 grams. The extremely high dose is 10 grams and more.

The best advice is to be consistent with a moderate dose. In this way, the overdosing risk will be low, and you will enjoy all the benefits of Kratom including weight loss in less time.


Side effects of Kratom
stomach painIs there anything like Kratom overdose or Kratom side effects? Yes, overdosing Kratom is 100% possible especially when you don’t know how much Kratom will be sufficient for you.

Mostly the new users experience this thing. But for the side effects of Kratom, there is nothing to worry.

The alkaloids of Kratom are short acting. The effects of Kratom last for 2-4 hours maximum. The alkaloids don’t stay up to very long periods like drugs.

The side effects of Kratom are not exactly the side effects. However, they are not desirable and pleasant for anyone.

The side effects only show up when you take a dose much higher than your body requirement.

It becomes a problem for the body to handle the dosage, so the uncomfortable effects show up. These side effects include stomach pain, diarrhea, laziness, etc.

These side effects are not severe. It is just a reminder to alarm the user for unregulated Kratom dosage. Weight loss from Kratom is not the first choice of goal for Kratom users.

The responsible use of it may help to come down from your current weight. But you will have to wait for at least 2-3 months to see the results.
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.

Have you heard of people gaining weight since starting kratom? That seems to be my experience, even though I'm actually eating less? I can't say for sure that it is the kratom of course, but it is the only change I am aware of. I know lots of people have asked about kratom for weight loss, but I haven't seen posts where people find they are gaining weight since starting it. I have a good 15-20 lbs I'd like to lose, and sure don't want to gain any.

Any experience w/ this? I've searched and haven't found much. We are using mostly red strains for pain relief in 2g doses 2x a day. We recently started experimenting w/ greens or green/red mixes for day time relief. We haven't yet tried white vein, since our focus has been 100% pain management, but a little energy boost would be nice.

Thanks!

Have not heard anything about weight gain being related to Kratom use BUT if chronic pain affects your appetite it could go either way.
I usually gain weight when I am not feeling that well because I do no eat regularly and am not very fussy about what goes in my mouth. However, when I am well with pain under control, I have more energy, I pay more attention to my diet, I do more cooking from scratch, and I am more active.

Consequently my weight tends to go down.

Your comment reminded me that I stopped drinking coffee (daily stimulant) a while back, totally forgot about that! I think I just had a duh!!! moment :-? :huh: ...no coffee, very little movement...slowed metabolism. Now that kratom is controlling pain AND reducing appetite, I'm starting to move more, and the weight is just starting to come back down.

Thanks! You guys helped me figure this out.

YAHOO!

I find that if my pain is under control (and thankfully it has been lately) EVERYTHING is better!

My turn around in pain control I attribute to a recent homeopathic remedy and my ongoing physiotherapy session. A WORLD of difference.

Homeopathy is VERY specific to symptoms.

Bryonia 200C was the remedy of choice this time as it is very specific to symptoms MADE WORSE ON MOTION.

I was having nausea which no one could explain except to say that it was coming from the irritation of nerves in my back (mid back - I had an injury there many years ago). Any kind of movement in that area (like yoga) made it worse. BUT it was getting so much worse and it was so bad that just getting up and walking to the kitchen made the nausea worse. AND of course I have always had pain on movement. Just getting out of bed is a challenge some days (osteoarthritis in my back).

The remedy worked gradually (and I think it is still working) and I did not expect improvement in pain BUT within two weeks everything was SO much better. My appetite is SO good I have gained weight UGH!

I have had some pretty AMAZING results with homeopathy in my life. in 2016, my homeopath CURED depression diagnosed by a psychiatrist. With a precise remedy it was gone in 24 hours ( I did not believe it either - but since I lived it I knew it was real).

I am always thankful that I found homeopathy 35 years ago!

Hi there, thanks for sharing the post. I have heard that there are many diet guides which helps to reduce weight. Reducing weight is an easy task if you are eating a balanced diet and avoiding junk food. As a diet guide provides you better guidance to eat healthy to maintain your weight. I have heard good reviews about Cellublue from my friend who provides a best diet guide for weight loss.

A well balanced diet for me does not include any grains at all. As soon as I start eating grains (wheat especially) I start gaining weight!

Junk food left my life decades ago...I do not even like going out for dinner. I would rather stay home and eat well. Everything in the house is home-made, including all soups, and sauces. Mustard and mayonnaise are the only condiments purchased at the grocery store.
BUT I am lucky...I am now retired and have the time to do this.

Reducing weight can be a real challenge if your body chemistry is all messed up and you are not used to moving around a lot. Good nutrition and movement are a must BUT good nutrition does not look the same for every individual.
