Mucuna pruriens, aka velvet beans, is a plant that contains L-dopa. L-dopa can pass the blood-brain barrier, and is metabolized in the brain into dopamine. Dopamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter that, among many other functions, is a good deal responsible for sexual excitement. But not all velvet beans are the same. In India, velvet beans are grown as animal feed, and those cultivars are void of L-dopa as L-dopa would impede weight gain. Tongkatali.org's mucuna pruriens extract is made from wild Thai mucuna pruriens, naturally high in L-dopa. Be careful of cheating products, even on Amazon, which write a high L-dopa content on labels when in fact these products contain almost no L-dopa. If you want to test: the L-dopa of mucuna pruriens would cause nausea at dosages beyond a few grams.




Tongkat ali, dopamine, and eternal sexual desire, part 1


By Serge Kreutz


Natural Dopaminergic Research, 2019


L-dopa, mucuna pruriens, and dopamine agonists

Dopamine agonists have been around for many decades, and their pro-libido effect has been known for a long time. The assortment of dopamine agonists includes L-dopa, mucuna pruriens, bromocriptine, cabergoline, pergolide, pramipexole, lisuride, apomorphine, and a few more.



Dopamine agonists are used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Even after decades of attempts to come up with alternative regimens, the gold standard for raising dopamine in the brain is still L-dopa. As long as the desired treatment effects are achieved with L-dopa in conjunct with carbidopa (Sinemet, Pharmacopa, Atamet, Stalevo), physicians often do not see a necessity to add any of the other medications.



L-dopa occurs naturally in mucuna pruriens (velvet beans), and unlike what is the case for other Parkinson’s remedies, no prescription is needed for mucuna pruriens. Furthermore, if a mucuna pruriens extract is used, the carbidopa that is included with L-dopa Parkinson’s medications, can be avoided.

Carbidopa is added to L-dopa Parkinson’s medications to reduce the side effects of high dosages of L-dopa, but carbidopa also reduces the pro-libido effects. Thus, when one considers sexual enhancement with L-dopa, or any dopaminergic, L-dopa-containing mucuna pruriens should be the first choice.



The emphasis here is on "L-dopa-containing" because unfortunately, most mucuna pruriens supplements sold in healthfood stores in the US, or on Amazon, are a cheap Indian cultivar of mucuna pruriens which contains practically no L-dopa. The Indian mucuna pruriens was and is planted as animal feedstock, and was cultivated precisely to not contain any L-dopa because a high L-dopa percentage in mucuna pruriens preempts weight gain in lifestock (and humans, by the way). The best L-dopa-containing mucuna pruriens is wild-growing mucuna pruriens from forests in Thailand.



Among the Parkinson’s medications developed as alternatives to L-dopa, apomorphine (brand name: Uprima) was temporarily sold in Europe as a medication for erectile dysfunction. But that was wrong marketing. Dopamine agonists don’t work for erections like phosphodiesterase inhibitors. They work on libido. But who says that great sexual desire is less relevant than erections?



Uprima was a disappointment for men whose erection problems are vascular. But Uprima was sold as a medication for erectile dysfunction (at an exorbitant price) because erectile dysfunction is an accepted medical condition, but low libido is not.

While phosphodiesterase inhibitors like sildenafil citrate, or the natural alternative kaempferia parviflora, and yohimbine work on erections, and while elevating testosterone levels is of an unpredictable, questionable pro-sexual nature, dopamine agonists, including mucuna pruriens, can enhance both sexual excitement and orgasmic intensity reliably.



Because dopamine agonists suppress the hormone prolactin, which in turn suppresses testosterone, dopamine agonists can, in people with elevated prolactin levels, function in the same way as a testosterone replacement therapy would. This mostly happens in patients with pituitary cancer, which typically expresses itself in strongly elevated prolactin levels. Those afflicted by the disease have very low testosterone levels. Thus, for them, dopaminergic agents work as hormonal therapy.

Tongkatali.org's integrated male relationships success


By Serge Kreutz


Tongkatali.org provides an integrated service for male success, with a focus on East and Southeast Asia. Male success has a lot to do with male sexual success. Tongkatali.org sells sexuality-enhancing herbals with a proven scientific track record. This is our core operation.

But apart from that, Tongkatali.org is dedicated to the sexual success of our customers on a much wider scope.

Tongkatali.org, for example, offers consultation to customers on dental work and cosmetic surgery in Southeast Asia. This service is free for our customers, and can save them a lot of money and protect them from some bad experiences as well.

We often refer to our customers as members. For more than a decade, we have run formal memberships via sergekreutz.com. There were sexual function memberships and sexual opportunities memberships, both priced separately at 250 US dollars each. We have discontinued these, because there simply are too many phony consultation services around which use the same language.

As it stands now, anything related to information is free for members of Tongkatali.org (membership is automatic for those with an order history of 1000 US dollars or more for tangible items, mostly sexuality-enhancing herbals.

Some men are in lifelong exclusive sexual relationships. We respect and congratulate customers to whom this applies.

Most men are not made of such timber. Most men, and a large number of our members, have a profound interest in sexual variety.

For these men, if they are Westerners, East Asia has a lot to offer. Not only is the East Asian approach to physical relationships much more down-to-earth and open to negotiations. The age of men is also of much less relevance, if of any.

Tongkatali.org and Serge Kreutz started out in the early 1980s (around 40 years ago!) with travel guides on Southeast Asia. Unlike standard travel guides, these travel guides already did cover physical relationships. Travel guides nowadays never touch this topic.

Little has changed in Asia in 40 years. Of course, there are better roads, and now there is Internet. And immigration has become more complicated. But the mentality of the people up-country has changed amazingly little.

For members, Tongkatali.org provides free lifestyle advice, tailored for Western men considering moving to East Asia to achieve better physical relationships.

There is more. Tongkatali.org also trades domain names, and our members can rent unique motorhomes designed for Southeast Asian weather and infrastructure. These motorhomes are suited for couples or families going for extended holidays in Southeast Asia, and also for unattached men roaming isolated areas for physical adventures. Mind you: in Asia, the further away you get from modern, urban centers, the better your relationships will be.

Tongkatali.org Butea superba doping


Butea superba improves athletic performance in humans. This has been well established, even in research by the Thai Doping Control Center at the Mahidol University in Bangkok. See scientific study here:

https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/12f9/c34f3def0c87f0c968df48d1c6c334e712f9.pdf

Article continues below printscreens:





However, butea superba is not yet on the list of prohibited substances of the World Anti Doping Agency, WADA.

It's not that they wouldn't like to prohibit it. But they don't know how to test for it.

Butea superba affects the whole hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Thus, ratios of hormonal metabolites are not skewed as they would be with outright testosterone or anabolic steroids doping.



Phytochemical and pharmacological activity mucuna pruriens.

Yadav, M.K., Upadhyay, P., Purohit, P., Pandey, B.

The plant Mucuna pruriens (Fabaceae) is an established herbal drug, widely known as “velvet bean,” a vigorous annual climbing legume originally from Southern China and Eastern India, where it was at one time widely cultivated as a green vegetable crop. It has been shown that its seeds are potentially of substantial medicinal importance. The ancient Indian medical system, Ayurveda, traditionally used M. pruriens, even to treat such things as Parkinson’s disease. M. pruriens has been shown to have antiparkinson and neuroprotective effects, which may be related to its antioxidant activity and used for the management of male infertility, nervous disorders, and also as an aphrodisiac.
