What Does Strength Potion Do in Minecraft?

When a player consumes a strength potion, their melee weapons, such as swords, axes, and fists, deal more damage for a short period of time.
It also implies that each strike will cause more damage, making it simpler to combat monsters, creatures, and even other players in PvP mode.

Potions of strength are especially useful in difficult scenarios such as defeating strong opponents, conquering dungeons or boss fights, and even mining faster through stubborn blocks like Obsidian. However, it must be used strategically, as combining different potions or overusing them can have negative consequences and injure the player.
