I do like the coffee/kratom mix. In the morning I mix coffee, kratom, whey protein, stevia or monk fruit, and coconut oil in a blender. It it not bad tasting and it is like a mini breakfast. The protein powder doesn't seem to affect the absorption of kratom.

You’re welcome, Somethingsacredgoinonhere!

I added agmatine to my day today and it was fine. It has pain relieving properties for me in the instant gratification! Like you, I’m cool with placebo IF IT WORKS- lol lol lol

I recieved my agmatine today and gave it a try, I had taken a dose of Kratom about 2 hrs earlier, got home mixed agmatine (1/2 tsp) with OJ and 1-1/2 tsp Kratom, even though I had dosed earlier and took a small ( small for me) booster dose .... I do feel an effect that is promising!!

I’ll try in the morning with fresh 1st dose of the day,

Also when I took the CALM magnesium supplement I did notice a bit of potentiation . So I’d say it does add to the effects nicely, and either way ( placebo or not, which I’m cool with, but I don’t believe it’s placebo) it was noticeable and magnesium is great anywho !!

Interested in black seed, is this another name for black cumin??

Thx Laurie for the source recommendation
Bulk Supplement , I appreciate you

I also got some black seed oil capsules on Amazon (been too long to recall brand). I think it’s a wonderful supplement overall, but it gave me “the burps” and they were unpleasant tasting. It was a bit unsettling in the belly as well (heartburn like). I switched to flax seed oil capsules instead (keep refrigerated).

EDIT: my black seed oil experience (not negative) was with “Amazing Herbs Black Seed Oil 90 Softgel Capsules, 500 mg” from Amazon

Black Seed Oil has many Benefits. I can see how Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother could Potentiate Kratom. ACV can give a mild mood lift after ingesting just by itself. It has other benefits as well.

There are just so Many Potential Potentiators for Kratom. I Recommend taking them at least 45 Minutes before your Kratom Dose. One I have yet to try is Watercress. I would Love to try that one.

The Best That I have Found So Far are:
Turmeric 95% Extract with Black Pepper
Cimetidine or Tagamet
Cayenne Pepper
White Grapefruit Juice
Cat's Claw
Agmatine

Has anyone heard of or used Watercress as a Potentiator? I read that it is on a vendor’s website, which I won’t name cause not ILK approved. Am I allowed to mention here, really not sure?

I tried getting some to try during the winter but I’m on East coast and according to my son who worked in produce at grocery store it’s not available till spring. Well spring”s here, thank God!

Also why is it only white grapefruit juice only?
Is Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother useful too?

What’s best dosage of turmeric and a good place to buy it premixed with black pepper? Laurie mentioned bulk supplements on Amazon. Maybe I’ll start there

Thanks All

Edit: gmantheman where do you buy the black seed oil and do you think it’s better than other Potentiators?

Somethingsacredgoinonhere wrote: Goooood topic

Most of the time I mix my dose with OJ, not because of any potentiating effects , but because I like the flavor Sometimes I I’ll mix turmeric with my dose though I think it’s stated to be effective taking turmeric 15-30 minuets before Kratom, And on occasion I use a product called CALM, it’s a magnesium supplement. Used to use grapefruit juice from Trader Joe’s , but it wasn’t white juice which is the kind that boosts the strength of your dose...

Truth of the matter ( at least with me ) is occasionally I feel the boost from magnesium or turmeric.... but if I take these all the time I don’t notice.... tolerance?? Perhaps ..:. But my next dose I’ll try the magnesium because it’s been a while , I’ll report back :-bd :-bd

At night I sometimes mix calm with my kratom in hotwater. I am not sure if I feel any potentiation but it tastes okay and does help with regularity. Turmeric supplements do seem to help with making it last longer and with pain relief. The one supplement that I noticed that worked well was blackseed oil. A couple of teaspoons around 30 min or so did boost the effects of kratom. In the kratom world, YMMV
