Can Kratom Dehydrate You?

Known for an array of soothing, energizing, and mood-enriching properties, the many upsides of kratom make it one of the most desirable options in the world of natural wellness. Despite the numerous benefits attributed to the best kratom in Houston, even the best natural supplements have side effects. Among the most common side effects reported with kratom is dehydration. Why does this happen? What can you do to prevent the potential for dehydration with kratom? 

The Real Cause of Dehydration

Kratom is a natural diuretic that increases your body’s urine production. Much like caffeine, tea, and many other compounds that stimulate the body to produce more urine, these products do not actually cause dehydration. The diuretic compounds simply increase your output volume. What actually causes dehydration is when your fluid/electrolyte output exceeds adequate fluid intake. In other words, yes, kratom can contribute to dehydration, but it can be easily mitigated by proactively replenishing your fluids to counteract the diuretic effects! 

Not sure if you are experiencing dehydration? Here are some common warning signs to be aware of: 

  • Thirst: If you are feeling thirsty, your body is already slightly dehydrated. Proactively sip more throughout the day and your body will appreciate every drop. 
  • Fatigue & Headaches: Feeling foggy, have a headache, or are you feeling weak? Your body may be craving more water. Without sufficient fluid levels, blood volume/oxygen supply decreases, resulting in a fatigued body and mind. 
  • Dark & Infrequent Urination: Lack of output or darker than normal urine color is an obvious indicator of dehydration. 
  • Dry Skin: Alongside your dry mouth, you may notice additional irritation or skin roughness if you are frequently dehydrated. Grab a glass of water and apply a creamy moisturizer before your next kratom dose! 
  • Muscle Cramping: If your fluids and electrolytes are below par, you may experience muscle tightness, spasms, and cramps as a result. 

If you experience any of these symptoms, don’t wait to drink more water. Prolonged dehydration can cause serious and irreversible damage. Yes, the solution is obvious, but we are all guilty of neglecting our body’s basic needs from time to time. If you love kratom as much as we do, it’s time to upgrade your hydration game!  

Simple Steps to Improve Your Hydration Plan

To improve your kratom experience and prevent dehydration, a few conscious routine adjustments are easy to implement. And, best of all, you don’t need to purchase sugar-filled electrolyte drinks to do it. Increasing your water intake and a normal healthy diet provides your body with everything it needs to maintain hydrated health. 

After stocking up on kratom capsules, there are several ways you can effortlessly upgrade your hydration routine. Our favorite tip? Keep a water bottle with you at all times and set automated reminders on your phone or smartwatch to drink more. 

Official guidelines recommend anywhere from 8-13 glasses of water (2-3.7 liters) per day, but the actual amount of water needed can vary widely. If you don’t like the idea of tallying cups or constant phone reminders, listening to your body is second best. Our homeostatic mechanisms are fine-tuned to signal need; just be sure to listen to your body when it’s asking for more water! 

Other pro hydration tips include: 

  • Choose hydrating foods like melon, cucumber, and broccoli to boost your total fluid intake
  • Enjoy a variety of flavorful drinks and smoothies that inspire you to drink more 
  • Bring your entire water supply with you; if you don’t like tracking individual cups, bring your oversized bottle along and know that you met your daily goal when the bottle is drained!
