Dosage is as important as the medicine or natural alternative that you consume to combat a health issue! If the dosage is out of place, there’s more trouble than convenience. Similarly, the administration of the drug is important too.
Have you seen anyone drink an injection? Or has any doctor prescribed applying the serum in a capsule? No! That’s because an intravenous medicine has to be injected and a capsule is to be ingested! A simple mistake can cause a big confusion and we are not talking about a simple ‘c’ or ‘s’ here!
This article will describe how to take Akuamma seeds, and it will also highlight the correct dosage with their respective effects. These seeds work to improve moods, reduce discomfort, and provide energy to combat illness.
Many users claim that this natural botanical is an excellent pain suppressant, although there is no scientific evidence. However, if you get your hands on this phenomenal energizer and motivating seed, here’s a brief dosage guide to help you get started.
For any botanical supplement, a standard dose can’t be mapped out because everyone isn’t suffering from the same kind of pain and everyone doesn’t have the same pain threshold.
However, for the convenience of readers, reviews from different drug forums, including Reddit have been added to the article to give you a better insight into the experiences of other people and how you can relate them to yours.
How to take Akuamma Seeds?
If you thought kratom was a bitter natural supplement, you are in for another jolt! Akuamma seeds are much worse! Most people prefer to take this seed as capsules so they can avoid the bitter taste.
Those who take it in the form of powder, add a sweetener, or make it with tea to conceal the bitter aftertaste. Some users take Goji berry along with it and you can try some new innovations and share with us as well!
Capsules are a safe spot!
You can purchase this botanical supplement in the form of raw seeds, ground seed powder as well as capsules. If you have a coffee grinder, go for it and crush the seeds to liberate the goodness of nature!
Measuring the correct dosage is easier when you have the seeds in crushed form. Secondly, do not use a teaspoon as a scale as these measures can be inaccurate. Most natural supplements and alternatives have unpleasant effects when consumed in excess.
Use an accurate digital scale and then find the best capsule size for yourself. You can have vegan capsules too if you are allergic to the other ones. We always recommend Non-GMO and Allergen-free capsules to suit every consumer. Making your own capsules will help customize your dosage and simultaneously ensure quality and freshness.
Fill the capsules according to the dose that you ingest. This way you can have a stock of pills readily available to you.
Toss and wash is a hit
Some users prefer the toss and wash method while others even chew the seeds, but it has been reported that eating the seeds can cause severe nausea and vomiting. To avoid this, you can toss the required dose in your mouth, and quickly top it with a glass of water!
The fast method will not allow the taste to settle in your mouth and the aftertaste is also very short. The water consumed with the crushed seeds makes it easier for the powder to pass down without tantalizing, or in this case torture, the taste buds.
Avoid drinking too much water after it because if you burp you will get the bitter taste all over again in your mouth.
