Kratom is a powerful substance and one of its strains "Maeng Da" has grown in popularity. This fascinating substance has taken a life of its own and is among the more used strains in the world.
For those looking to lose weight and/or gain energy, it's time to look at Maeng Da in detail and all that it has to offer.
What is Maeng Da?
Maeng Da is a type of kratom strain, which has a unique subset of effects and is well-regarded as a "potent" strain. This red-colored strain is originally found in the heart of Asia and is a ball of energy with regards to its overall impact. It provides a wide-ranging list of advantages and is used for a number of medicinal purposes.
To take this the right way, it's best to start with 50-100 mg to see appropriate change.
Benefits of Maeng Da
1) Fast Weight Loss
When the right Maeng Da dosage is used, the weight is going to drip away rapidly. This is the true power of kratom and why it is openly used by millions of people worldwide. It is able to activate the body's metabolic response and can ensure everything functions properly over time. With this type of change, the weight starts going down.
When it is time to put together a comprehensive and personalized weight loss regimen, it's never a bad idea to start with Maeng Da.
2) Increase in Energy Levels
Along with the weight loss, people note an immediate change in their energy levels. Instead of dealing with chronic fatigue, they end up seeing a nice energy boost that lasts throughout the day and between dosages. Having this level of energy makes all the difference in the world for those fatigued.
A lot of people are unable to function due to this issue and that's where Maeng Da is able to get the job done. It provides a boost that is not only useful but is able to provide a meaningful change to how one feels.
3) Safe to Use
With years of continuous testing and meaningful natural properties, Maeng Da is a strong strain that gets the job done. Of course, it has been tested based on appropriate biological dosages and should only be used in those conditions. As long as the dosage is correct, your body is going to respond well.
This is what safety is all about when it is time to put things together and move towards a healthier life. Whether it is pain relief, weight loss, or simply a source of energy, kratom is safe to use.
4) Stress Relief
Stress can have a tremendous impact on one's life and it can start to seep into everything. Due to how kratom works, it is able to target those stresses at the chemical level and make sure things feel better. It is able to soothe the mind and that is when stress starts disappearing. For those dealing with bouts of pain, kratom is able to get rid of the pain, which helps eliminate stress.
Maeng Da is great for a number of reasons and one of them has to do with a general boost psychologically. People don't have to worry about their long-term mental health.

The strain is one of the most powerful and impactful options a person has and it can make a noteworthy difference. Pay attention to the Maeng Da dosage, make appropriate adjustments, and start noticing a change in how you feel.
It seemed like everything happened overnight because, well… it did.
One moment, my team and I were business as usual, running a multi-million-dollar edible cookie dough company I built from scratch in my at-home kitchen five years ago and the next we were sitting in an emergency management team meeting asking ourselves, "What do we do now?" Things had escalated in New York, and we were all called to do our part in "flattening the curve" and "slowing the spread."
The governor had declared that all restaurants immediately close to the public. All non-essential businesses were also closed, and 8.7 million New Yorkers were quarantined to their tiny apartments for the foreseeable future. Things like "social distancing" and "quarantine" were our new 2020 vernacular — and reality.
What did that mean for us? Our main revenue source was the retail part of the business. Sure, we offered delivery and take-out, but that was such a small portion of our sales. I had built a retail experience where people from near and far came to eat edible cookie dough exactly how they craved it. We had two stores, one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn, which employed over 55 people. We have two production facilities; an online business shipping cookie dough nationwide; a wholesale arm that supplies stores, restaurants, and other retail establishments with treats; and a catering vertical for customizable treats for celebrations of all sizes. And while business and sales were nearly at a complete halt, we still had bills. We had payroll to pay, vendors we owed, services we were contractually obligated to continue, rent, utilities, insurance, and none of that was stopping.
How were we going to do this? And for how long will this go on? No one knew.
As an entrepreneur, this certainly wasn't my first-time facing challenges. But this was unprecedented. Unimaginable. Unbelievable. Certainly unplanned. This control-freak type-A gal was unraveling. I had to make decisions quickly. What was best for my team? For my business? For the safety of my staff? For the city? For my family and unborn baby (oh, yeah, throw being 28 weeks pregnant and all those fun hormones in there, it's real interesting!). Everything was spiraling out of control.
I decided to take the advice I had given to many people over the years — focus on the things you can control. There's no point worrying about all the things you have no control over. If you focus there, you'll just continue spiraling into a deeper, darker hole. Let it go. Once you shift your perspective, you can move forward. It's not going to be easy; the challenges still exist. But you can control certain things, so focus your energy and attention on those.
So that's what I did. I chose, for the safety of staff and customers, to close the retail portion completely — it wasn't worth the take-out and delivery volume to staff the store, open ourselves up to more germs and human contact than absolutely necessary.
I went back to our mission and the reason I started the business in the first place — to spread joy. How could we continue to bring happiness to people during this uncertain time? That's our purpose. With millions of people across the globe stuck inside, working from home, quarantined with their families, how can we reach them since they can't come to us? So I thought back to how and why we got started.
Baking, for me, has always been a type of therapy. I could get lost in the mixing bowl and forget about everything else for a moment in time. Sure, I have a huge sweet tooth, but it's about the process. It's about taking all of these different ingredients and mixing them together to create something magically sweet and special. It's about creating and being creative with the simple things. It's about allowing people to indulge in something that brings them joy — a lick from the spatula or a big batch of cookies.
It's about joy in the moment and sharing that joy with others. So my focus is back on that, and it feels good.
We could still ship nationwide, straight to people's doorstep. So we are making it easier and less expensive to send the ultimate comfort food (edible cookie dough) by introducing a reduced shipping rate, and deals on some of our best-selling packages.
In a way for us, it feels like we are going back in time… back to our roots. When I first started the business, we were only shipping nationwide. There were no stores, no big team, no wholesale. It was just me, a small crew juggling it all, and we made it work then. And we'll make it work again. We have to leverage our online business and hope it floats us through this time.
We are focusing our digital content strategy on sharing recipes, activities, and at-home treats with our engaged, amazing social following so they bake with their families and stay busy at-home. We started live baking tutorials where our fans can bake-along with me and I can share all the tips and tricks I've learned over the years with them.
I've leveraged the cookbook I published last year, Hello, Cookie Dough: 110 Doughlicious Confections to Eat, Bake & Share, to come up with fun content and additional things to do at home. We started shipping it and our at-home baking mixes for free to encourage people to get busy in their kitchens!
And as a business, we will continue to connect with our community to bring them joy and focus on what we can control, including our attitude and outlook first.
During times of uncertainty, which this certainly is, you should do the same. Identify the things you can control and focus your time and energy on those things. Distract yourself with the positive. Force yourself to stop asking and worrying about all the what-ifs. Do what you can for the moment and then the next moment. Make a list, and take it day-by-day.
It's going to be okay. You will be okay. We will all be okay.
