You may have heard about the potential benefits of kratom extracts, but wonder how to start safely implementing them into your daily routine. For example, what form of kratom is the best for you? What serving size should you use initially? What exactly is kratom used for?

It’s important to research kratom and understand its typical uses, prospective benefits, and possible effects before you plunge into the world of kratom. Although kratom extracts come in a wide variety of forms and strengths, kratom liquids are rising in popularity and visibility.

We’ll cover the necessary basics of kratom liquids and help you understand their potential uses and suggested serving sizes. Knowledgeable kratom use can help you reduce the risk of unwanted effects and help inform your kratom extract choices.

What you need to know about kratom

Kratom is a natural botanical that has been used around the world for centuries. The kratom tree (Mitragyna speciosa) is native to Southeast Asia, and its leaves are used for the extracts made for human consumption.

Kratom extracts can be purchased at MIT45 in gummy, powder, capsule, and liquid form. The effects you may feel will vary depending on which option you select. It’s vital to look at detailed product information and suggested uses before you take kratom.

Kratom has not been approved by the FDA and its benefits and effects are under constant scientific research to help inform users.

The potential benefits and uses of liquid kratom

Liquid kratom extracts

Liquid kratom extracts contain the alkaloid compound mitragynine which interacts with the body’s opioid receptors. However, the full impact of mitragynine on the body is not yet known.

Liquid kratom is a relatively new method for kratom. Traditionally, dried kratom leaves were brewed, chewed, or smoked. Liquid kratom might immediately have a calming or soothing effect, and also may increase energy levels.

However, liquid kratom extract—and kratom in any form—should not be used as a substitute for prescribed medications or treatments. If you struggle with chronic conditions, such as chronic fatigue or chronic pain, consider consulting your doctor before including liquid kratom in your routine.

Holistic healthcare providers can also offer advice so that you can make an informed choice about kratom use. Ensure that you’ve weighed the possible benefits and risks of liquid kratom before you take it.

Potential benefits and uses of liquid kratom

People who choose to use liquid kratom extract are often athletes, students, those with an on-the-go lifestyle, and others. Although the benefits of liquid kratom have not been proven, those who use it regularly may claim the following:

  • Increased energy
  • Fatigue reduction
  • Mental clarity
  • Mood enhancement
  • Soothing effects

Suggested serving sizes for liquid kratom

Although liquid kratom is typically sold in smaller quantities, a full bottle can be greater than the suggested serving size. Many liquid kratom products sold as “shots” contain more than one serving, so make sure you read the bottle before you drink an entire bottle.

You may even want to start with a smaller amount than the suggested serving size — everyone’s body reacts differently to kratom, and beginners may find smaller serving sizes will meet their needs.

Liquid kratom may hold more appeal for beginners than its powder, capsule, and gummy counterparts as it’s easier to control your serving size. When you’re ready to increase the amount you take, you can do so in incremental steps.

It may be wise to begin your liquid kratom use by measuring out ½ to 1 teaspoon and using the serving as your starting point. Keep in mind that liquid extracts are a concentrated form of kratom, meaning even a small amount can have noticeable effects. Be especially careful if you are unfamiliar with its effect on your body.

Potential, unwanted effects of liquid kratom

While many users describe the effects of kratom as soothing or invigorating, caution and informed use is crucial to avoid detrimental effects. If you neglect to read the product information, ensure you’re purchasing from a trusted brand, or if you take more than the recommended serving size, you may experience adverse effects.

While kratom has a relatively low potential for abuse, if used improperly, it can create harmful, potentially serious, issues. Short-term and long-term effects after incorrect use may include:

  • Weight fluctuation
  • Constipation
  • Dehydration
  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Insomnia
  • Lethargy
  • Nausea
  • Reduced appetite
  • Sweat
  • Vomiting

Although these effects are possible when kratom is abused or used incorrectly,  kratom experts and trusted kratom brands can help you to take liquid kratom correctly and enjoy its positive benefits while avoiding other effects.

How to reduce kratom effects

You may find a multitude of liquid kratom extract products online, in convenience stores, and in smoke shops. However, kratom liquids are not all the same. Just as with other major supplements, unethical brands exist that try to cut corners and don’t ensure the quality of their products.

It’s important to know what to look for when shopping for kratom liquids so that you can rest easy in the knowledge that the highest industry standards are met. Premiere, trusted kratom brands like MIT45 feature thorough research and rigorous testing to verify the quality of their products.

You can reduce the risk of experiencing unwanted effects by seeking out kratom liquids that are:

  • Third-party tested: Third-party tested products have undergone independent lab testing. This ensures the purity, safety, and strength of the kratom extract. Third-party testing can also verify that a kratom liquid product is free of harmful substances like heavy metals and bacteria.
  • AKA GMP Qualified Kratom Vendors:

The American Kratom Association (AKA) was established in 2014 to protect the rights of kratom users, protect natural resources, and to raise education and awareness about kratom.

The AKA website features a curated list of credible vendors with verified good manufacturing practices (known as the AKA GMP List of Qualified Kratom Vendors). This list includes MIT45 and our sister company, Golden Monk, and the list’s featured brands have an established, high level of manufacturing processes that meet or surpass industry standards.

  • Purity and strength:

The best kratom extracts contain few additives, which allows products to maintain purity and include anticipated levels of strength. MIT45 ensures the purity and strength of kratom liquids through our proprietary Triple Purification Process.

  • Certificate of analysis:

You can check the packaging of a kratom liquid for a certificate of analysis seal. If the product features this certificate, it means the kratom has passed a series of thorough tests.

You can check any MIT45 products by entering the product lot number to ensure the certificate of analysis.
