The research and development behind identifying the many benefits of this wonder compound was discovered and documented by award winning scientist. Dr. Wichai Cherdshewasart.
Butea Superba, or locally known as Red Kwao Krua in Thailand is a plant herb in the family Papilonaceae. This plant has the characteristics of being a crawling vine that wraps itself around large trees. Many species of this plant exist. Through an arduous research effort two species were selected for commercial cultivation. They are used for medical research, health supplements as well as for beauty treatment. Although there are chemical similarities to Pueraria Mirifica (White Kwao Krua) these two plants are very diverse in their chemical attributes. With the research effort it has been established that Butea Superba does facilitate vasodilation in the utilizing similar mechanisms as the prescription drug rejuvenate herb. Subjects also report an increase of energy without an increase in nervous system stimulation. Butea Superba has been used safely with no known side effects. According to research, this herb can be utilized as a mild alternative aphrodisiac.
Found mainly in Thailand, Butea Superba can be found in the forests of the northern and eastern regions, and along Kanchanaburi province. The roots and stem of the plant are medicines used for strength and power for centuries, and it has been revered as a health tonic.
Dr Wichai, as he is known, has numerous scientific degrees, but he is really considered an Ethnopharmacologist. Ethnopharmacology is the study the biological properties of plants and plant components as potential medicinal remedies. Many valuable drugs in the world today (taxol, atropine, ephedrine, tubocurarine, digoxin, morphine, guanidine, physostigmine) came to use through the study of indigenous plant remedies. The world's largest pharmaceutical companies employ many ethno pharmacologists and chemists who continue to use plant-derived drugs as prototypes which they can then bring to market the synthetic derivative.
Through his research Dr Wichai developed a unique extraction and preparation process while identified and isolating the unique active component in Butea Superba that makes it such an effective compound for erectile function issues. Currently "Dr. Wichai" is a Professor in the Biology department at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand, often referred to as "The Harvard of Thailand", for its high academic standards and the accomplishments of its faculty.
Dr. Wichai began his research on Butea Superba in 1991, first by traveling all over rural parts of northern Thailand to search for and identify the best, most potent strains of Butea Superba. He achieved this through examining botanical characteristics, chemical analysis, consumption history, toxicology testing, as well as laboratory and non human clinical trails. In 1998, King Bhumibol of Thailand appointed him to Thailand's National Board of Biosafety, a group which concerns with protecting and preserving the natural plants that are found only in Thailand. The international organization Greenpeace praised his efforts to ban genetically modified foods from Thailand in one of their recent high-profile international campaigns.
In 1999, a research team at Ramathibodi Hospital got together with the team from the Institute of Thai Traditional Medicine. It was financially supported by the Thai Traditional Medicine Foundation and technical support from Department of Medical Sciences at the Ministry of Public Health. The team started animal testing trials for acute and semi-chronic toxicology of Butea Superba produced by Dr. Cherdshewasart. The data obtained will be used in the future in designing the clinical testing on humans.
Men from all over Thailand and other parts of the orient travel great distances to head for the hills of Thailand in search of the Butea Superba plant. As a result of this activity the Thailand government is stepping up its efforts to crack down on Butea Superba poachers and is considering a ban on the plant's export to prevent piracy to foreign countries.
Butea Superba or Red Kwao Krua has demonstrated multiple health benefits in several studies concentrating on its benefits toward male health. Derived from clonal selection, the cultivar with the highest flavonoid and flavonoid glycosides have been selected and grown via organic farming.
The raw extract from the root of Butea Superba contains flavonoids and flavonoid glycosides demonstrating comparable benefit as that of any commercial male enhancing pill, without any of the side effects. Studies have showed that high flavonoid and flavonoid glycoside content may support blood flow to male genitals, may promote normal sexual function and erectile capacity, enhances sensitivity and performance.
One study indicates that Butea Superba has some anticholinesterase activity. This would mean that Butea Superba can increase levels of acetylcholine in the body. Acetylcholine is known to be involved with erectile function and memory. While White Kwao Krua has business potentials for females, Red Kwao Krua seems to have such commercial promises for males that it has been called the "Rejuvenating herb".
Another study shows that Butea Superba works primarily by increasing the relaxation capacity of the corpus cavernous smooth muscles (which are the two chambers in the penis) via cAMP phosphodiesterase (PDE5) inhibition and it also is believed to act on the brain by actually triggering the improvement of the emotional sexual response. PDE 5 is often called the "erection killing" enzyme in your body. PDE 5 sole job is to deflate erections. Men who have trouble achieving and maintaining an erection most often it is because of the PDE 5 enzyme has not been neutralized. The longer the PDE 5 enzyme can be neutralized the longer erections last, the easier it is for erections to occur and the more the chambers of the penis can expand thereby increasing the size, quality, fullness, firmness and frequency of erections. No other natural compound can do this.
Animal studies on 10 middle-aged male rats force-fed for 10 days with 4 mg/kg of Butea Superba showed no short-term abnormality. Human studies on 3 male volunteers (age 20 to 55) receiving up to 1.6 g/day of Butea Superba for 2 months showed dramatic penile responses such as induction and elevation of early morning erection, erection frequency, penis strength, prolongation of erection, post-ejaculation erection, and intercourse frequency. The response was found to be dose-dependent, while a few volunteers felt neck ache and backache.
