4 Considerations Regarding Kratom And Weight Loss

Why Kratom can aid weight loss

Weight loss is becoming a primary concern for everybody these days as obesity is a global epidemic. Your primary focus while losing weight should not be good looks but to avoid various health problems.

Obesity is a causative factor for diabetes, osteoarthritis, hypertension, blood pressure, etc. Losing the stubborn fat accumulated over the years is a bit difficult, and you need a lot of motivation and energy for that.

There are many supplements available in the market to aid your weight loss journey. Kratom is believed to be one such supplement.

But does Kratom help in losing weight?

There are yet no scientific studies to prove that it does. But the effects of Kratom on your body might help you lose weight indirectly.

To know how Kratom helps in weight loss, we first need to learn what Kratom is and how it works.

What is Kratom?

Kratom is the name given to herbal products from Mitragyna speciosa. This tree is a native plant of Southeast Asia growing vigorously in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and New Papua Guinea. The leaves of this plant are known to have antioxidant, antiinflammatory, antidepressant, relaxing, stimulatory, and analgesic properties.

Kratom works its way through the active alkaloid content present in it. Mitragynine and 7-OH Mitragynine are the two main active components showing the effects. Mitraphylline is the alkaloid whose percentage decides the potency of the Kratom strain.

Kratom is available in many different strains depending on the region it is cultivated in and the colour of the stem and vein of the leaves.

Best Kratom for weight loss

From the three colours of Kratom strains, i.e. Green, White, and Red; White vein Kratom strain, specifically Thai Kratom, is the best Kratom for weight loss. They contain more appetite-reducing and stimulating alkaloids, and at the same time, the effects are milder than other strains. Strains that work best for weight loss are Maeng da, Thai, Malay, and Elephant.

  • Maeng da Kratom is a unique strain produced by grafting for highly potent alkaloid contents. The strain is highly potent, and the effects long-lasting. It offers stimulating and energizing effects without causing jitters or restlessness.
  • White Elephant provides appetite suppression and euphoric effects.
  • White Malay is popularly known to increase mental endurance and enhance cognitive function, and energizing and stimulating effects.
  • Effects of Thai Kratom lasts for longer than Maeng da.

How do Kratom aids in weight loss?

Kratom is not responsible for weight loss, but its effects might help you in the weight loss journey. Let us now see what effects help and how;

Energy boost and stimulation

The biggest problem excessive body fat causes is laziness or lack of energy. We need to be regular in our weight loss routines and workouts. Kratom, a stimulant, can provide you with that energy boost and motivation if consumed before a workout or in the morning.

It is known to increase blood circulation so that the proper amount of oxygen flows in the blood during physical activity. In addition, you can also use Kratom for anxiety and depression relief, along with multiple other benefits. So try Kratom now!

Appetite suppression

Kratom strains differ in their functions. Some of the Kratom strains are known to enhance your appetite, while others might help you to suppress your appetite and cravings.

If you consume Kratom to help in your weight loss, you need to study the strains and select one carefully. Kratom strains that suppress your appetite cause minimal or no side effects.

Anxiolytic effects

Isn't this true that we have cravings for junk food and sugar-loaded foods when stressed out or going through hard times? Yes, it is true, and some people develop eating disorders because of stress by overeating or binge eating.

Kratom stimulates the release of feel-good hormones that calms your mind and instils a feeling of well-being and joy. This feeling of happiness and a relaxed mind saves from overeating extra calories.


Many people suffering from pain find it difficult to be physically active and be regular in their routine. Kratom is analgesic in nature. It relieves the pain from injuries, muscle soreness or chronic conditions like arthritis.

After consuming any of the Kratom products, the effect will kick in about 15 to 60 minutes and lasts more than 4 to 5 hours. So, if you consume Kratom, you can continue your physical activity without feeling discomfort because of pain.

The dosage recommendation for weight loss

Simple dosage guidelines for Kratom dosage for weight loss are:

  • Low dose – 1 to 2 grams
  • Moderate dose – 2 to 5 grams
  • High dose– 5 to 7 grams

Moderate is the best Kratom dosage recommended to aid in weight loss. Kratom dose recommendations also rely on the frequency of consumption.

A higher frequency of Kratom consumption may lead to the development of tolerance in the body. Tolerance towards Kratom might show adverse effects on other consumption.

It is to be noted Kratom does not cause weight loss; it might indirectly help in the journey. Also, the FDA does not approve the consumption of Kratom, and there is no verified information on dosage recommendations.

If you are new to Kratom, always start with a lower dose. And if you are on some other medications, consult your doctor before using Kratom.


Kratom is a very effective natural supplement that can help you to lose weight. Just be sure that you take the ideal dose. There are multiple kratom strains and capsules available in the market, and you can use them as per your suitability and requirements.
