The Best Natural Mood Boosters

Kratom’s mood elevation properties make it a popular choice amongst those seeking an all-natural boost in mood, although it’s not the only option available. In fact, Kratora recently added a number of new products to our selection. Our newest products include not only kratom, but also kanna (sceletium tortuosum), fermented kanna, sakae naa, kava extract, blue lotus flower powder, and blue lotus flower extract. There are numerous anecdotal accounts and studies that have placed these botanical compounds amongst the best natural mood boosters.

How Do Natural Mood Enhancers Work?

You may be wondering, “How do natural mood boosters work?” and “Are natural remedies to improve mood really effective?” To answer these questions, it’s important to understand how stress, depression and bad mood manifests. When one or more of these conditions are present, there is a physical change in the brain and other regions of the body, such as the muscles, which may be tense.

In short, these all-natural substances contain components that can act upon the body and brain, effectively altering your chemistry and creating tension throughout your body. Therefore, substances that promote relaxation and impact your physical chemistry can potentially lead to mood stabilization or improvement. The precise mechanism for affecting mood does vary according to variables such as the actual type of substance, the way in which that substance is used (i.e. burned as incense, brewed into tea, ingested via capsules, etc.), and the amount or dosage involved.

All products sold on Kratora’s website is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or condition .  All of our products on this website are not sold for human consumption and are for incense or ethnobotanical research purposes only.

Since each person’s physical chemistry and situation is unique, there is no one-size-fits-all mood enhancer. The effects of kratom, kanna, blue lotus or other substances will vary depending upon the aforementioned variables, so it’s generally best to try a few to see what you prefer. 

About Kratom and Mood Elevation

Kratom (mitragyna speciosa) is a plant in the coffee tree family which is native to Southeast Asia. Indigenous Asian cultures have long favored kratom for its natural mood boosting properties. There are three basic varieties of kratom — red vein, green vein and white vein — and numerous strains, which are usually named for the region where that particular kratom type was first grown or traded.

Green vein and white vein kratom tends to be favored amongst individuals seeking a natural mood booster. The same is true of a number of Maeng Da varieties. Some of the most potent kratom strains for mood boosting include green Thai kratom, white vein Maeng Da and ultra enhanced Indo (UEI) kratom.

Other Botanicals for a Natural Mood Boost

There are a number of other botanicals that are well-regarded amongst individuals who are seeking natural mood elevation. Some of these include:

  • Kanna – Kanna (sceletium tortuosum) is native to South Africa, where indigenous cultures have long used the seeds to elevate mood, decrease appetite, and increase energy levels.
  • Fermented kanna – Fermented kanna is slightly stronger than unfermented kanna and it tends to be associated with mood elevation and relaxation (whereas unfermented kanna generally has more stimulant properties.)
  • Sakae naa – Sakae naa (combretum quadrangulare) is native to the riverbanks of Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. Its effects have been said to include relaxation/stress relief, euphoria, and improved alertness.
  • Kava extract – Kava, also known as kava kava root, is a plant that’s native to the Pacific, where it has been used for generations for its ability to relieve stress and anxiety naturally.
  • Blue lotus flower powder – Also known as Egyptian lotus or blue water lily, the blue lotus flower (nymphaea caerulea) contains a psychoactive alkaloid called aporphine. Aporphine has been associated with relaxation and improved mood.
  • Blue lotus flower extract – Blue lotus flower extract is a more concentrated preparation of the dried and ground blue lotus flower leaves.
