Internal Factors

Internal factors mean that new Kratom users have a low tolerance towards Kratom. This is normal due to the body’s reaction to the Mitragynine content in Kratom.

To avoid this, new users should find out information about kratom or consult about the right dosage.

External Factors

External factors have many causes. This is because of the various causes of Nausea that we can find every day. The causes of external factors are:

Salmonella and E Coli

People who consume Kratom may ingest Salmonella or E Coli bacteria, both of which can cause nausea, weakness, and lack of appetite.

Salmonella and E. Coli contaminate Kratom usually through a less hygienic production process.

Contaminated with a dangerous non-kratom substance

This non-kratom substance serves to increase Alkaloid levels and can be a mixture of leaves other than Kratom, or synthetic alkaloid materials so that the reaction that arises after taking Kratom is faster. This can harm the Kratom user by causing Nausea.

In Dr. Michele Ross’ book “Kratom is Medicine” said that the Alkaloid Content, Mitragynine should not be more than 2%. This is exactly in line with the Kratom Consumer Protection Act (KCPA).

Metal Compounds

Metal compounds that contaminate Kratom usually occur in the process of drying Kratom that is not sterile.

In the traditional way, people process Kratom and dry it in any place, which allows Metal Compounds to attach to Kratom.

Metal compounds that are the main concern are Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, and Cadmium. This metal compound often causes nausea and other digestive disorders.

Too high dosage

Apart from the other ingredients in Kratom, dosage also affects Kratom users getting Nausea. As Internal Factors explain, taking too high a dose can cause Nausea. New users and long-term users can both experience Nausea.

Trying new Kratom products or wanting to get instant effects usually causes some cases of nausea that occur in long-term users.
