Kratom and Water – Stay Hydrated
I am not a medical doctor so cannot give out medical advice, if anything considering your health is questionable SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE IMMEDIATELY! I only speak on personal experience see DISCLAIMER
A lot of people right now are wondering what effects kratom may have on your liver and kidneys. Much like anything that goes into your mouth and through your stomach will eventually find itself filtered by your liver and your kidneys.
So the question has arose if kratom is bad for kidneys.
I workout and I am not new to supplements, especially ones such as creatine. Creatine was very controversial for a while (I actually don’t know anymore because I have already decided it was safe) and one of the main things I kept hearing was that it would eventually destroy your kidneys.
Yes and no.
Let me explain. Creatine is recommended to drink with ample amount of water so that your body can flush it out sufficiently and so that your kidneys are not filled with creatine.
Drinking more water will allow your kidneys to work more efficiently and allow your overall body to feel great. Remember the human body consists 60%-70% of water, it is crucial we fuel ourselves!
Alright so than what does this mean for kratom than? Well, knowing that kratom will eventually lead into your toxic relieving organs (liver and kidney) it is important to drink WATER throughout the day.

Water Will Allow the Kratom to Flow Allowing Better Filtration.
Will this mean more trips to the bathroom? Yes, but we cannot go against our bodies natural processes and should never hold urine in!
Drinking ample amounts of water will also increase the kratom effects by allowing it to flow more throughout your body.
Your body works at 100% when you are hydrated so it only makes sense that the leaf will have the full spectrum of effects when your inner organs are agreeing with each other.
Sadly some people don’t even drink water, which I have had friends tell me this (weather it is true I do not know) and I just cannot believe they are still breathing.
They hydrate themselves on pepsi, sugar loaded juices and anything besides water.
Kratom does Dehydrate, Stay Hydrated
Kratom tend to make you dehydrated, only reason I know this is because I sometimes will get a dry mouth while under the kratom effect. (See Kratom Effects for more on this)
I personally bring a gallon jug water bottle everywhere I go. When full it is more than 8 glasses of water per day, which is the ample of amount of water a human should drink in a day. Considering the fact that kratom does seem to tend to dehydrate, its important to drink consistently throughout the day, and not when your thirsty.
The main reason a lot of people fall into dehydration symptoms without knowing it is because we drink when we are thirsty. I believe that if we are thirsty, it is a mild sign of dehydration and I believe it may actually be a fact.
Bottom line being, drink a lot of water, even when your not thirsty. Make sure to empty your gallon jug at least one time. I also know that the 1.5L bottles you buy in convenience stores are 6 glasses. Empty that sucker twice and you have loads of water.
Just make sure to spread it out throughout the day. I like to drink a lot of water during the day, probably close to 12 glasses maybe more since I workout.
It is always important to hydrate our bodies. When we add products to our bodies (not just kratom) we tend to forget the aspect of hydration. Water is the only medication for dehydration so please don’t replace water with soda and juice.
If you are an active individual I am sure you can understand what I am saying here and if not make sure to drink AT LEAST 8 glasses per day, especially when using Kratom.
