Today, natural supplements have enjoyed a rise in popularity as users have continued to choose natural remedies that leave them feeling better. And kratom is no different. Derived from the leaves of the tree also known as Mitragyna speciosa which is native to southeast Asia, Kratom has enjoyed a rise in popularity in the U.S over the last few years. A huge reason for that is kratom has effects on the opioid receptors in the brain triggering feelings of sedation, pleasure, and discomfort reduction in the body. But how could one make the effects of kratom feel stronger, without actually taking a larger dose? Kratom potentiators may be the answer.
What are Kratom Potentiators?
At the most basic level, a potentiator is a substance/product that is used to enhance the experience and effectiveness of another substance. In Kratom’s case, it is any substance that enhances the effectiveness of Kratom in your body. Potentiators are particularly effective if you are looking to beat stagnant strain syndrome. Stagnant strain syndrome is a side effect of using a particular strain of kratom over a long period of time.
Why Use Kratom Potentiators?
The best reason to use potentiators is when a user is looking to lower their kratom intake, while continue receiving the same benefits. By reducing the dose of Kratom ingested, you are reducing your chances of developing stagnant strain syndrome.
Another great reason to use potentiators is the savings on Kratom it helps you have. By using more potentiators, you will be using less Kratom meaning you get to save more money on your Kratom purchases.

Preparing your Kratom and Apple Cider Vinegar
Let’s face it, Kratom’s taste is not particularly great but placed beside Apple Cider Vinegar, Kratom tastes like your favorite ice cream. In order to make this combination taste a bit better and easier to consume we want to introduce our idea of what a mix should be.
To begin, do not add a lot of apple cider vinegar. Simply use a teaspoon, add your desired kratom dosage and pour in about 250mls of water. You could add a teaspoon of cinnamon honey or cayenne pepper if you are feeling adventurous. These are sweeteners to help mask the intense taste and flavor of the apple cider vinegar.
Remember to use a reduced Kratom dose when using potentiators to avoid a potential overdose. Potentials are amplifiers so using your regular dose with potentiators is taking beyond your regular Kratom dose.
