On our English pages, you often see the word "relationships". This is just sanitized language. On our English pages, "relationships" refers to what couples, when not sleeping, do in bed. Or, if so inclined, on the kitchen table.

English is a rather hypocritical language. Many words for natural bodily functions and processes have dirty connotations, and polite speakers like us have to go to considerable length to communicate meanings without naming them. But we nevertheless hope you get the point.


Tongkat ali, rest assured: not standardized for eurycomanone

By Serge Kreutz

Tongkat Ali Research, 2019

Websites claiming to sell tongkat ali standardized for eurycomanone are scams throughout. They are run out of apartments, with sales of a few dozens or a few hundred bottles per year. They don't have a factory and couldn't afford standardization anyway.

This is one of the rare instances where, in hindsight, you have reason to be glad that you were lied to.

Why? Because there is no indication whatsoever that the chemical eurycomanone would be responsible for those parameters for which you bought, or intend to buy, tongkat ali: increased testosterone, increased libido.

Just do a search on Medline, the online medical and scientific database of the US National Institute of Health with abstracts of more than 25 million research papers.

Results:

Eurycomanone testosterone = zero



Eurycomanone libido = zero



It's just not a topic, except for scammers.

But there are hundreds of studies on "tongkat ali testosterone" and "tongkat ali libido".


Why Sumatra Pasak Bumi does not standardize tongkat ali for eurycomanone

We at Sumatra Pasak Bumi do not standardize tongkat ali extract. And it's not because we wouldn't be dedicated to quality. It's because we do not believe in lying to and cheating customers.

We have been in the tongkat ali trade for more than 25 years, and as a company, we have the intention to span several generations. With such a perspective, we don't join marketing fads that come and go.

Sumatra Pasak Bumi manufactures tongkat ali extracts at two ratios, 1:50 and 1:200. The two ratios refer to the number of kilograms of root in relation to one kilogram of extract. It's something we can measure fairly easily with a normal scale.

In the past few years, many websites selling inferior or outright fake tongkat ali have suddenly come up with claims of standardization. 2 percent, 4 percent, 8 percent, 20 percent eurycomanone.

The eurycomanone content of 1 kg of dried tongkat ali root lies in a natural range of in between 0.1 and 0.5 grams.

Using an extraction method of heat and pressure over a certain period of time, one can arrive at extracts that contain between 0.5 and 2 percent of eurycomanone.

To standardize an extract for eurycomanone sounds easy on the paper of labels, and the claim can be worded on websites in a matter of seconds.

But in real life, things are not so simple.

If standardization would be done in accordance to international lab rules, first one would have to establish the exact natural occurence of eurycomanone in any given lot of tongkat ali extract. This requires a chromatograph and time.

Then, if the measured eurycomanone is below what one wants to print truefully on a label, additional eurycomanone would have to be added. There is no other way.

To manufacture pure eurycomanone, it has to be separated from other consituents through a variety of chemical processes.

A method to isolate eurycomanone on an industrial scale, as it is possible for yohimbine or caffeine, doesn't currently exist. So it needs filtering, centrifuging, dissolving, and chemical reagents. Therefore, pure eurycomanone is really expensive.

It can be bought from chemical supply houses of the kind of Sigma Aldrich. Here a Chinese source:

https://www.mybiosource.com/prods/Biochemical/Eurycomanone/datasheet.php?products_id=6094178

eurycomanone for sale

This is reagent grade. Not pharmaceutical grade, and not even food grade. Ethics guidelines in many countries would not even allow the substance for tests on life animals.

Chemical supply houses don't sell to just anybody. You have to send credentials, such as proof that you are a researcher at a university.

Anyway, if it were available, pure pharmaceutical grade eurycomanone would have to be added in an ever variable proportion to any tongkat ali extract to make it standardized. That would be a huge effort, at astronomic costs.

Just consider this.

A high potency extract has maybe 2 percent eurycomanone. For a 300 mg capsule, this would be approximately 6 mg.

If a product were 300 mg per capsule, and 8 percent eurycomanone, than at least 18 mg of pure eurycomanone would have to be added, at a cost of 18 x 1520 US dollar = 27,360 US dollar per capsule. Times 100 capsules = 2,736,000 US dollars, just for the standardization of 1 bottle.

And then the scammers offer it at 69 dollars per bottle, buy 2, get 1 free.

Ridiculous. Every website claiming "standardized" tongkat ali extract is a scam.

And why should those scammers bother even with just genuine tongkat ali when, as a matter of fact, they can ship sawdust, or all-purpose flour, and still print "standardized tongkat ali" on labels, or include the claim on a web page. Nobody will or can check. Scammers are interested only in your money. Scammers are not interested in your health

Kaempferia parviflora (krachai dam) for relationships prowess and sports


By Serge Kreutz


Maybe it’s no coincidence that kaempferia parviflora is a plant with a very limited geographic reservoir. It is found only in Thailand, quite possibly the sexiest country in the world.

Thai cuisine uses rhizomes more than any other the cuisine of any other country. Rhizomes like ginger, tumeric, galangal give an authentic taste to most Thai dishes.

Kaempferia parviflora is a rhizome, and extremely rare in the wild. And we do mean “extremely”. Would this rhizome plant not have been cultivated in Thailand as a medicinal plant, it would probably long have been extinct.

The name of the plant, kaempferia, suggests some connection to martial arts, and a German-speaking botanist in naming it. Kaempfer is German for Fighter.

And indeed, one could not find a kickboxing camp in Thailand where krachai dam (kaempferia parviflora) wouldn’t be widely consumed.

Is there scientific evidence? Of course, there is.

Kaempferia parviflora is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, not just of phosphodiesterase class 5 like sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil, but also of class 6 phosphodiesterase.

Phosphodiesterase acts on blood vessels, inhibiting constriction. For the organ, this causes an erection. And for the kickboxer, it causes an increased blood supply to about every muscle of the body. Obviously, increased blood vessel diameter means increased blood supply, and increased blood supply means more oxygen for every muscle.

And this is exactly what trainers in Thai kickboxing camps promise. Every blood vessel fully saturated.

Not that kickboxers only appreciate this physiological effect of kaempferia parviflora.

The herbal is not yet on the list of the World Anti-Doping Agency, so, as word spreads, expect some professional cyclists participating at the Tour de France to develop a marked preference for Thai cuisine. Or how about a Thai cycler riding down the Champs Ellysee in a yellow jersey.

And then there are bodybuilders who, in cutting cycles, just struggle to achieve just this for esthetic endeavors: relaxed blood vessels that show on the surface of the skin.

Clearly, kaempferia parviflora (krachai dam) has enormous potential.
