Red Kwao Krua (Butea superba Roxb)

Butea superba is an indigenous herb of Thailand, found in the forests of Thailand. It is known as “red kwao krua” or so-called “phytoandrogen” (androgen male hormones derived from plants) by Scientists. Butea superba belongs to the Family Leguminosae, subfamily Papilioneae. Butea superba has been found to contain flavonoid and flavonoid glycoside, of which scientists found that these two substances from the herb have strong cAMP phosphodiesterase enzyme inhibitory effect, which this enzyme is directly related to corpus cavernosal vasodilation. (Note: Corpus cavernosa (corpora in plural) is major tissue of penis, responsible for the rigidity of the erect penis). To inhibit this enzyme will help promote vasodilation (blood flow) at the penis area. Thus, this effect results in stimulating aldosterone male hormones.

Aldosterone male hormones are vital for blood circulation (vasodilatation) and new tissue generation, then resulting in improvement of Erectile Dysfunction, enlargement the sex organs, strengthen sex organ muscles and improve skin texture to promote youthful looks. Because of the effect of vasodilatation to increase blood circulation especially at sex organ, like mechanism of Viagra. Some people recognize Butea superba as “Natural Viagra”. It is interesting to note that from clinical trials in patients who had Erectile Dysfunction problems with additional health problems, such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, heart disease and hyperthyroidism, they responded satisfactorily to Butea superba herb extracts.

From many researches and clinical trials show that Butea superba herb can promote vasodilation (blood circulation) at penis area, resulting in hard effect at penis area. The action is very similar to Viagra. Thus, researchers and scientists recognise and call Butea superba herb as "Herbal Viagra".

When a man is sexually excited, normal mechanism leading to erection. The brain send the impulse to the penis, telling the penis to relax. This is caused by physical or mental stimulation. The arteries in the penis response and widen. This allows more blood to flow into the penis. The arteries expand and then harden. The veins that carry blood away from the penis get compressed. This restricts the blood flow out of the penis. More blood flows in and less flows out. This makes the penis larger and cause hard erection.

The way Viagra acts on a body, it helps release higher Nitric Oxide Gas. This gas in turn, makes the cells to produce a substance called the cyclic guanine mono phosphate (c GMP), which has an expansive, relaxing effect. Thus the arteries carrying the blood to the penis expand and relaxes the muscles relaxes, opening up tiny parts in the erectile tissue that then enlarges giving copious blood flows forming higher polydiasterase leading to higher secretion of androgen hormone which vasodilatation of veins aids in the erection.

Many clinical trials confirms that Butea superba has a similar effect to Viagra.

For Butea superba effect, this mode of action is fully inhibited by Butea superba intake, thus toning up and nourishing the body system. This function is exactly the same function of Viagra. While Viagra is synthetic, it can act immediately while in our herbals, this is achieved over a period of time but the onset of normality is assimilated in the system unlike Viagra , when the drug is out of the system, one need to take another, continuous usage has terrible side effects, especially for men with heart problems.
