The latest "Feel Free" craze is just a bit controversial.

In a previous podcast I described why you've seen me throwing back a small blue bottle of absolutely euphoric, energizing goodness that is one of my favorite discoveries of late for energy, workouts, sex, a better mood, and more.

Inside the bottle is a tonic of plants from the South Pacific and Southeast Asia, a unique and potent blend of the earthy and spicy tones of the ancient tropical plants kava and kratom, along with refreshing pineapple juice, coconut, and premium sweet stevia leaves.

So what's to worry about?

Problem is, since releasing that episode and also ranking Feel Free amongst my 5 Healthy Energy Shot Recommendations, I've gotten a lot of flack because some folks have reported upset stomach, a feeling of drunkenness or dizziness, addiction, withdrawal symptoms, and other problematic issues with Feel Free.

So in a recent podcast, I dove into the safety profile of the stuff, why some people genetically can't handle the kratom component, why most people are probably overdosing on the stuff and a host of other issues.

...many of the problematic issues have been solved by making a capsule version of Feel Free that has the exact 10 kava to 1 kratom ratio in the original product. Three capsules equal one serving of the tonic, which is 1/2 bottle.

My guest on today's show is the inventor of Feel Free, JW Ross.
