Butea

Origin:

The roots of the plant that exclusively grows in Thailand are used, which contain among other things an androgenic phytohormone, similar to the male testosterone. The plant is, like Pueraria (it is closely related), known as red Pueraria (red Kwao Krua) for generations and was first explored in 1940 by a group of German pharmacists but then again forgotten. Simultaneously with the investigation nowadays Butea has been rediscovered as the equivalent of Pueraria.

Effect:

Unfortunately, this herbal product is advertised as a Viagra alternative in the Far East. Undoubtedly, sexual virility and erectile effects are reported. Furthermore, quantity of the ejaculate (and possibly quality) has been investigated and reported in clinical studies. Appropriate to the business acumen of Asians and the unequivocally claimed effects, such marketing strategies are understandable, as aphrodisiacs are sought substances since ancient times and especially since it is a product where for the first time the effect appears measureable in this indication. Apart from the fact that the comparison with Viagra is pharmacologically wrong, it is unfortunate that the positive anti-aging (regeneration components) only finds second mention.
