nothings works to help make Kratom work better for me.

Most of the time these things "potentiate" by blocking certain enzyme reduction pathways so that more of the alkaloids have time to be absorbed before they are "reduced" and eliminated by the body.

Grapefruit juice is so good at this that pharmacists recommend that GRAPEFRUIT JUICE not be used to take ANY medication as you can easily get too much absorbed from your usual dosage.

SO if you do use grapefruit juice you are simply increasing the dose you take. The only problem is you do not know by how much. I prefer to have more control.

You could accomplish the same thing by taking more Kratom and then at least you have control over the dose.

For me the simply grapefruit juice seems to get the leaf going a bit quicker and extends how long it lasts.

Hey Nan. :-h
I also do not have trouble with backups from the leaf. =D>

Okra? I love Okra! I never even heard of it till I moved to Georgia. Now I ask for fried okra instead of fries if possible. :-bd
The south is great. They fry everything here. :woohoo: :silly:
I feel my arteries clogging just thinking about it. :lol:

I am fine with digestive issues I have not needed to take anything special. But I do eat okra everyday, weird I know.

Turmeric- supermarket grade powder is probably not that great unless its a whole food or specialty market. Also regular brand drugstore capsules are only so so. Read reviews on Amazon for better quality capsules. I buy powder from a local indo/packi grocery store and feel I am getting good quality. Some kratom vendors sell turmeric. I feel its better for keeping tolerance down than working for enhancing kratom's effects. It has other health benefits that make it worth taking daily.
I find drinking green tea after I take kratom will kick it into high gear quickly.

Off to work have a good day everyone :-h

Here is my List of my Favorite Potentiators Not in any Order:

Turmeric Extract With Black Pepper
Black Seed Oil
Cat's Claw
Agmatine
Vitamin C
Cimetidine
Magnesium
Cayenne Pepper
White Grapefruit Juice
Lemon Juice

There are many many More Potentiators out there. You just have to find the Ones that Help you the Best. Everybody Responds Differently so Experiment & keep a Journal is the best thing to do.

I think prior discussions will serve you well for this topic.

Try search under keyword DIGESTION?

I think that’s where it all is. Nan70 will get you links to those discussions when she can, but you would be wise to not wait.

Great questions! Very important to address colon health as well as staying hydrated with extra electrolytes.

Magnesium citrate is a golden necessity for kratom users!

I’m wiped out. See you here again soon! Glad you’re catching on so well, lumpyspaceprincess!

Thank you guys :D

Do you take capsules of turmeric or powder? Can I just get this at the supermarket?

And also unrelated and kinda TMI but I used magnesium citrate today for the first time since starting kratom (as recommended by the forum) and I didn't realise how backed up I had been O__O but it helped a lot lol!
Also I have aloe vera tablets, does anyone have experience with those for clearing out? <3

I have been told to use Simply Grapefruit (not from concentrate).

None of the acid mixes potentiate powder in my metabolism, either.

I take a turmeric blended with black pepper extract, olive leaf and tart cherry with my kratom faithfully, but I honestly don’t notice any difference.

What I’ve eaten and when has more effect for me.

It’s absolutely fun trying every combination of things people swear by :-)

hey princess! this is just my personal experiences. I either blend it with as much of an acidic juice my tummy can handle, like pineapple or those fancy fridge bottled blended juices. let it sit for at least 10 min. if I have an especially early work day ill prep it night before and stick it in fridge.

or ill take a soda chaser. carbonation helps. can be club soda.

turmeric I take a few times a week regardless cause it has its own benefits.

black seed oil helps as well and it helps keep you regular. it can repeat on me very strong flavor. sometimes I cap it but it can still creep up on you. I only do that for day doses.

many times I haven't felt a significant difference but these work for me. changing up strains and companies is more effective for me. ill even blend my doses.(75% green 25% red ect..) depending on my pain level and/or how many hours I have to work

Hey guys! ^__^

I'm just wondering what your favorite potentiator is for Kratom (if you use one).
I tried orange juice the other day but I tried it from concentrate instead of pure (oops!) and it honestly did nothing haha.

I've heard good things about tumeric, too. Just wondering what you guys use/find success with <3
