You could try breaking that up, for example taking 3 - 3.5 grams first thing in your day, and then 1 - 1.5 grams later on, say mid afternoon, so as to keep your mood from drooping. That way you wouldn't be increasing the amount you took per day.

For focused meditation by focusing on Kratom sensations, you might like the Binaural Beats Android app.

Thanks for the info, Babel :)

"Dosage:

Users report using lower doses of kratom to achieve its antidepressant and cognitive stimulating effects in the 2 to the 3-gram range"

I use one 4.5 gram Kratom serving daily...... I wonder if It would be better to use 3 grams for depression.

For focused meditation by focusing on Kratom sensations, maybe the 4.5 grams is just right, though.

Maybe a little saffron in my Kratom perhaps?

I put the Double Wood brand of saffron extract on my Amazon "your list" for later consideration. They're a good brand, and after a brief look were the best deal I could see. Curbing late night desires for a snack was mentioned as an attribute, and that's something I wouldn't mind help with. On the other hand, even after breaking up my supplement pills and capsules into morning and evening groupings I'm still taken aback at just how much stuff I take, and I'm really not eager to add another to them. Lol, I'll give in to this, and justify it as a short term solution, but for now I'm sticking to not making an impulse buy. ;)

How to Free Yourself from Depression with Natural Antidepressant Supplements: Part 1 of 2


It's a nice list, and it goes into a respectable length with each one mentioned. But scroll to near the bottom, and ...

Kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa)

As a member of the coffee family, kratom, mitragyna speciosa, has extensive anecdotal anti-depressant evidence, when used in lower, more-stimulating doses.

While it's larger, more sedating doses of 5 grams or more are common and widely used as an opioid withdrawal and pain medication alternative, we feel this plant should be researched for its lower dose use for depression and energy.

While we don’t have studies on the effects of kratom on depression, we believe kratom also positively affects dopamine, amongst other neurotransmitters, with the power to lift one out of major depression.

We expect to hear more about kratom and its antidepressant lower dose actions.

Dosage:

Users report using lower doses of kratom to achieve its antidepressant and cognitive stimulating effects in the 2 to the 3-gram range. While an overdose is virtually impossible, psychological addiction has been reported with daily kratom use in a smaller subset of daily users, at least equal to caffeine. Some argue it can be physically addictive with withdrawals when using higher daily doses.


Interestingly enough, Agmatine is listed right below it. And another day I learn something, as I don't recall hearing Saffron praised as a mood booster.

#1 Saffron Extract: (Performs Equal to Prozac and Tofranil)


Given that it's expected that articles don't get over quoted in other places, I'll leave it at that, with a tease. ;)Give it a read, and it's just part one.
