Species : Due to the dispersal habitat of the plant, many variety had been found. At least, cultivars had been studied and selected for commercialized plantation and were named as Butea I and II.
Chemical properties : This herb exhibits some chemical closely related to that of the Pueraria Mirifica herb but some chemicals are far more different.
The crude extract of this herb showed some similar reaction to that of the male pill; Viagra. They show vasodilatation effect the same as in the Viagra Tablet. Its chemicals also promote energetic body without any nervous or muscular or cardiac over stimulation. This is the reason why this herbal product can be studied and promoted to be the “Herbal Viagra”.
While the commercial Erectile Dysfunction-treated drug is a great interesting product despite its serious adverse effect which some are related to death, a herbal product such as Butea Superba with soft but safe action should be an alternative.
Furthermore, our researcher had found that Butea Superba products could be in both forms; ingested product such as a health food product and a topical application product such as a gel cosmetic product.
