The world knows only two botanicals with an impeccable reputation for better sex: mucuna pruriens and kaempferia parviflora.
Mucuna pruriens (rather harmlessly called velvet beans) is for libido and orgasms, kaempferia parviflora (krachai dam, black ginger) is for sensation and erections. Together they are ideal.
By comparison, the reputation of all other herbals that have been tried for better sex is so-so, and while yohimbe has an effect on erections, its reputation is stained by the fact that it diminishes orgasm intensity, and by its lousy side effects.
Thus, mucuna pruriens and kaempferia parviflora truly are in a league of their own.
Mucuna pruriens contains L-dopa, a protein that crosses the blood-brain barrier and is converted in the brain into dopamine. Well, most mucuna pruriens contains L-dopa. The mucuna pruriens grown by AAZA Farms manufactured into extract by AAZA Herbs does. And in this, AAZA is an exception.
Mucuna pruriens has long been cultivated as animal feedstock especially in countries like India. And for an animal feedstock, the L-dopa in mucuna pruriens is unwanted because L-dopa impedes weight gain. Obviously, farmers want their cattle and hogs fat. Thus, in a process of many decades, India in particular has cultivated a mucuna pruriens strain thay is largely void of L-dopa.
And that's the strain sold as mucuna pruriens by all retailers except us. US healthfood stores, in particular, sell L-dopa-free mucuna pruriens. Large US chains don't want you to have an effect from L-dopa because it can cause nausea in higher dosages, and they are afraid of litigation.
So, while they may still print "libido" on labels, what they sell is cheap Indian feedstock mucuna pruriens that contains no L-dopa. The Indian mucuna pruriens only makes fat... cattle, hog, and humans.
We at AAZA on the other hand have cultivated our own strain, grown by AAZA Farms on several hectars of suited land. We obtained wild mucuna pruriens plants from Thai rainforests, and multiplicated these until we were able to produce commercial quantities which we now trade.
Our cultivar is much different from the Indian one. The pods are covered with serotonin-containing hairs that cause extreme itch on contact. By contrast, Indian mucuna pruriens pods are naked.
Furthermore, our cultivar can be harvested only once a year, while Indian feedstock mucuna pruriens is good for up to three harvests per year.
The other herbal we grow at AAZA Farms and manufacture as extract at AAZA Herbs is kaempferia parviflora (krachai dam, black ginger). Kaempferia parviflora is a plant which, as so happens, is rich in natural phosphodiesterase inhibitors.
Phosphodiesterase inhibitors are the class of pharmaceutical agents that account for the effectiveness of sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra).
However, while the phosphodiesterase inhibitor content of kaempferia parviflora is substantial, these phosphodiesterase inhibitors are of a lower affinity than those of the three above-named prescription drugs.
Affinity in pharmacology discribes the certainty with which a ligand binds to a receptor.
Sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil are high-affinity phosphodiesterase inhibitors. They bind to receptors whatever the physiological setting. This means that there will be an erection even when the sex is pretty miserable.
With a low-affinity phosphodiesterase inhibitor, an erection will be world-class if the sex is good. The overall response on sexual stimulation is more natural.
Furthermore, kaempferia parviflora can and should be taken on a continuous basis. It is the case because the phosphodiesterase inhibitos in kaempferia parviflora do not knock out other physiological control mechanisms.
Kaempferia parviflora should be taken on a continuous basis because its effects accumulate. The longer one takes it, the greater will natural erectile ease and stability be. World-class natural sexual function, that is.
And then, because kaempferia parviflora enhances blood flow to the penis, the penis at all times, even when flaccid, will present itself with a bigger size.
And what man would object to this "side effect"?
