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.


The case against tongkat ali standardization for eurycomanone



By Serge Kreutz

Tongkat Ali Research, 2019

More and more websites selling tongkat ali, or alleged tongkat ali, claim that their product is standardized for eurycomanone. As if this would be a mark of superior quality. But it isn't.


Tongkat ali's bioactive constituents

Potentially active compounds in tongkat ali (scientific name: Eurycoma longifolia) are many. See below for a rough idea.

While there has been a lot of research into tongkat ali extract, it is still unclear which of the 50 or so biochemical constituents works on the human hormonal system. It may well be that the effectiveness is in a combination of several tongkat ali phytochemicals, in that one constituent is the main effector, and others work as catalysts.


Eurycomanone is not linked to tongkat ali's testosterone and libido enhancement powers

There are many scientific studies linking tongkat ali extract to elevated testosterone and heightened libido. How about eurycomanone and testosterone, or eurycomanone and libido?

Let's run a search on PubMed, or Medline (alternative names for the same institution). Medline (or PubMed) is the medical database of the National Institute of Health of the US government. The criteria for an inclusion on Medline are more stringent than for Google Scholar, which is prone to the commercial manipulation with non-scientific publications. Medline contains the abstracts or full texts of more than 25 million scientific medical studies.

So, what do you get if you search for: eurycomanone testosterone

Nothing. Zero.

Eurycomanone hasn't been studied even just once for a connection to testosterone. Not in genuine research.

So, how about: eurycomanone libido

Same story. Zero results.

Again, there isn't even just a single scientific study that would have examined a link between eurycomanone and libido.

But a lot of research is being done on eurycomanone and cancer. Eurycomanone is cytotoxic to certain cancer cells. This means: eurycomanone kilks these cells. But the research is preliminary. It is done on isolated cells (in vitro), not on living organisms (in vivo), not in rats, and certainly not in humans.

Eurycomanone in pharmaceutical dosages kills certain cancer cells. Nobody knows whether it also kills healthy cells, and if yes, which. Even if you have cancer, you don't want to be a guinea pig.

But as far as testosterone and libido goes, eurycomanone is the hype of Internet scammers who want to sell inferior or fake tongkat ali for a high profit. The same scammers also often claim GMP certification, or academic credentials from Swedish universities, with both untrue.


Tongkat ali is traditionally boiled as tea

Tongkat ali has a long tradition as folk medicine in Southeast Asia, the only part of the world where it grows. The conventional method of preparation and ingestion is to boil the root for about half an hour or longer, and then drink the resulting tea. Root chips are often boiled for several rounds.


This liquid essentially is an extract, though one that is highly diluted because of a large quantity of water. The dilution as a tea doesn’t make the tongkat ali less effective, it is just dissolved or suspended in more water.

Many prominent people in Southeast Asia consume tongkat ali. Best-known among them is Mohamad Mahathir, a medical doctor (MD) and prime minister of Malaysia. That guy is in his mid-90s, and is fit as if he were in his 50s. He was re-elected prime minister of Malaysia in 2018 at age 92, after having held the post in his relative youth from 1981 to 2003 (age 56 to 78). Does tongkat ali tilt the odds of reaching 100 in your favor?

As for Dr. M's virility: he has seven children, and it's easy to lose count on the number of his grandchildren, as there is constant upward fluctuation.

Here some advice on preparing a tongkat ali tea from another Southeast Asian politician, the former Singaporean presidential candidate Tan Kin Lian. Mr. Tan Kin Lian was apprehended for tongkat ali smuggling (tongkat ali is a protected plant in Malaysia). He is only in his 70s. Thus, his interest in relationships is quite natural (by Asian standards, anyway).

More recipies for tongkat ali tea:



How much eurycomanone is in tongkat ali tea or aqueous tongkat ali extract

The traditional method of consuming tongkat ali is by boiling it for a long time. Substantial heat over considerable time is needed to dissolve tongkat ali phytochemicals in water. Boiling over time will result in a brown fluid (an aqueous extract) with its characteristic miserable (and I do mean MISERABLE) taste.

Cold, even lukewarm, water will not dissolve anything in tongkat ali root. You can try this yourself by placing tongkat ali root chips in a bowl of cold or tepid water for a day or two. Nothing will happen. No brown fluid, for sure.

You could also apply some simple logic. Tongkat ali roots are tree roots. The function of tree roots is to absorb water and water-dissolved nutrients, even chemicals. That would be strange if roots, or species-defining phytochemicals in roots, would dissolve in water. They don't.

Heat is an essential component of any water-based (aqueous) tongkat ali root extract.

Scientific studies were mostly done with an aqueous extract of tongkat ali. And this, per se, means that root particles were boiled for considerable time. The studies were then conducted with a cocktail of phytochemicals which resulted from boiling tongkat ali root particles.

But now, be aware of this: the eurycomanone in tongkat ali is NOT heat-resistent. When tongkat ali root particles are boiled, the eurycomanone quickly degrades due to the heat.

Even when just drying roots at 70 degree Celsius (158 Fahrenheit), a large portion of the eurycomanone in tongkat ali will already be destroyed. See the conclusion of the following study.



This, again, indicates that the multiple positive effects of tongkat ali, observed in traditional use and scientific studies with aqueous tongkat ali extract, are NOT due to eurycomanone. The eurycomanone will have been degraded in the preparation process.


Why all that focus on tongkat ali's eurycomanone in the first place

This is where things start getting murky.

In 2011, the Malaysian Department of Standards, a government agency within the Malysian Ministry of International Trade and Industry issued a document (MS 2409:2011) titled: Phytopharmaceutical Aspect of Freeze Dried Water Extract From Tongkat Ali Roots - Specifications. It was somehow based on an involvement of the Scientific And Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM), which is a government-owned Malaysian business.

The website of the Malaysian Department of Standards is: http://www.jsm.gov.my/



They have a search function on the home page. I thought it may be interesting to have a look at this standards guideline.

I tried searching for MS 2409:2011, and for tongkat ali. Results look like this:

Then I went Google:



The page from Standards Malaysia probably once existed, but it now doesn't load.

Standards Malaysia is... how should I say? Maybe we can put it like this: Standards Malaysia is... sub-standard.

I didn't want to give up. And finally, I found a printscreen on the website of a Malaysian tongkat ali trader.



This document from SIRIM, adopted by Standards Malaysia, is full of grammatical, linguistic, and logical fallacies. I guess it is what you get when some office workers in government offices of Third World countries start playing scientist.

Based on the forgotten printscreen, the document is titled: Phytopharmaceutical Aspect of Freeze Dried Water Extract From Tongkat Ali Roots - Specifications

Malaysian companies trying for a marketing edge claim that this document recommends 0.8 to 1.5 percent eurycomanone.

But the document of Standards Malaysia doesn't state these figures.

But even if it were, it would have little credibility. This is just intellectual Third World. The headline already is confusing: "Phytopharmaceutical Aspect of Freeze Dried Water Extract From Tongkat Ali Roots - Specifications".

So, liquid tongkat ali extract is not covered, and vacuum-evaporated extract also not. Only freeze-dried water extract. But freeze-drying is a method of removing water from a complex, moist preparation (freeze-dried coffee, or a freeze-dried spaghetti meal from 7-11). Freeze-drying is decisively not a method for extracting phytochemicals from roots.



Why is the document from Standards Malaysia no longer online? Maybe someone higher up decided: we better follow Lincoln's advice and don't continue publish this on the net.



Even though there is no sound basis to standardize tongkat ali products for eurycomanone because eurycomanone is not heat-resistant, the idea of standadization went viral among Internet scammers because something can be written on labels (standardized for ... percent eurycomanone) which no consumer ever can check.

And what happened when a university lab checked commercial tongkat ali products for eurycomanone? Some of the more-reputed products which went through a registration effort with the Malaysian medical regulatory board, the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau, did not contain any eurycomanone.


Article continues below printscreens


Are these products fraud?

Not so fast, please.

The products without eurycomanone probably were honest water/heat extracts. And the others just contained some tongkat ali root powder.

Because it may just be that unprocessed root powder will have the highest eurycomanone percentage.

Should you thus consume tongkat ali root powder rather than extract?

Of course not. Eurycomanone anyway isn't responsible for tongkat ali's testosterone and libido-enhancing properties. And unprocessed root powder that may contain eurycomanone will most likely give you a diarrhea, possibly severe, for its infestation with salmonella and E coli. This is why in every traditional application of tongkat ali, the root is ALWAYS thoroughly boiled, even cooked.


Play it safe: trust traditional knowledge on tongkat ali

Nowadays, many people tend to belittle herbal medications. But through thousands of years, herbals have always been the mainstay of treating and healing illnesses.

An important difference between herbal and pharmaceutical substances is that herbals have a shared evolutionary history with humans and other forms of life, while most pharmaceuticals are xenobiotics. They are not known in the evolution of life. And while some xenobiotic substances can be used successfully to ameliorate certain conditions, the chances are 99.99 percent that xenobiotics have long-term detrimental effects.

Mind you, the insectide DDT was initially thought to be completely harmless to humans. And it yielded billions of dollars in profits to the chemical industry, plus a Nobel Prize in Medicine (not Chemistry) to the man who discovered that DDT kills insects.




This is not the only obscurity of medical science, and also not the only obscurity in the history of Nobel Prices in Medicine.

Another example: a physician who treated psychiatric patients by drilling holes into their foreheads (lobotomy) also was awarded a Noble Prize in Medicine.




The surgeon most notorious for using lobotomy to engineer humans with reduced impulses and limited or no free will was ironically named Freeman, Walter Jackson Freeman II, to be exact.



Some of the famous victims of lobotomy were the sister of US president John F. Kennedy, and Evita Peron, the wife of Argentine president Juan Peron.



The idea of creating persons without free will was later picked up by Jeffrey Dahmer of Milwaukee. He drilled holes into the forehead of a 13-year-old Laotian boy, Konerak Sinthasomphone, and infused some acid, which made Konerak a relationships-slave zombie.






The sometimes limited trustworthiness of science

Unfortunately, the less people are educated, the more convinced they tend to be of the infallibility of science and modern medicine. For illiterate peasants, every doc is a god.

But some people with a degree in science or medicine are just incompetent (which doesn't hinder them to formulate "standards" for herbals), and some scientists and physicians are fraudsters for reasons of wealth or fame, or incarnations of the devil.

Elizabeth Holmes is a case of scientific dishonesty for the sake of financial gain. Her case was unfolded by the investigative journalist John Carreyrou (we need more of those, and fewer health bureaucrats).





The Korean Dr. Hwang Woo Suk is a case of scientific fraud for vanity. Some scientists just want to be famous.



And the German Dr. Josef Mengele was an example of the devil in a white coat.




It's hard to return to a civilized topic like the sometimes limited trustworthiness of science after having considered what humans are capable to do under the cover of medical research.

But what is published in scientific journals is sometimes dubious, sometimes biased, and sometimes nonsense, accidental or intended.

Anti-male gender studies nonsense:




Plain nonsense, not intended as nonsense:




As we have arrived on the topic of ass-wiping: A study claiming to have found out that leftist British politicians wipe their asses with the right hand, and conservative politicians wipe their asses with the left hand, also made it into a scientific journal.



The ground-breaking study on how politicians wipe their asses was published here:



Why, in the context of tongkat ali standardization, these examples of what gets published in scientific journals? We want you a bit less gullible, a bit more critical when tongkat ali traders refer to scientific studies or methods in their sales pitch. The seller could be a scammer, the study could be wrongfully interpreted, or the study could be a dubious construct of Third World scientist who earned a degree on the connections-and-money route, who are affiliated with business interests or the national development plans of Third World governments. ?

We cite dubious science because we would like you to respect traditional knowledge. Ethnobotany, traditional knowledge on the healing potential of certain plant, including tongkat ali, is an example of crowdsourcing of wisdom in pre-Internet times. And like in the case of Wikipedia, crowdsourcing can produce balanced knowledge.

Healers in ethnobotany are usually highly respected in traditional communities. They may not be able to cure defined illnesses as specifically as clinical physicians who know what antibiotic to use for what infections.

But overall, herbalists are likely to be closer to what academic medicine professes as paradigma: the Oath of Hippocrates.



Folk medicine may not have pharmaceutical hammers like Viagra in its repertoire. But Viagra can cause strokes and be fatal, and Viagra-assisted relationships is satisfying on a limited scale only.

A herbal relationships enhancement stack based on tongkat ali and incorporating butea superba, mucuna pruriens (velvet beans), krachai dam (black ginger, kaempferia parviflora) may not be a quick fix like a synthetic high-affinity phosphodiesterase inhibitor, but it may well be the better long-term fix. The task is not erections on demand. The task is life-long good relationships. And anyway: krachai dam is also an (albeit low-affinity) phosphodiesterase inhibitor, tongkat ali extract (but not eurycomanone) elevates testosterone, as does butea superba, and mucuna pruriens increases dopamine tone in the brain, but not as brutally as cocaine and meth.

Folk medicine, or ethnobotany in scientific parlance, is a treasure trove for gently improving a person's health.





Dubious tongkat ali standardization for eurycomanone, and other attemps to kidnap traditional knowledge for the development plans of Third World countries, are just attempts to corrupt ethnobotany.

Tongkatali.org's Pharmacological enhancement


By Serge Kreutz


Unfortunately, many more herbs have a reputation to aid in relationships function than actually have an effect. And some of the herbs that do have a clear effect, such as yohimbe, have bad side effects. Yohimbe certainly aids erections, but it’s too heavy on the heart to be a comfortable choice.

Prescription drugs also have their downsides. Sure, phosphodiesterase inhibitors all work well to engineer erections. But the erections caused by each of these medications are cold. The above three do not increase relationships pleasure. Dopaminergics can increase relationships excitement, but for most of them, the window of opportunity isn’t very wide, and one has to know what to expect.

Many dopaminergics, including sublingual apomorphine (Uprima) have a tendency to make you feel unwell. A slight nausea sets in when dopaminergics become effective, and one desires to lie down (even without a relationships partner at hand). For many people, including me, the slight nausea is accompanied with sleepiness. Sleepiness, of course, is, in men, often accompanied by erectile ease.

So, combining apomorphine with a phosphodiesterase inhibitor like Pfizer’s Blue will certainly produce a nice erection, and relationships excitement (in spite of the accompanying nausea) if one gets the timing right. This means, one has to start to engage in relationships intercourse at the time the dopaminergic kicks in (when the slight nausea first appears). If one misses this point, and falls asleep, even just for 15 minutes, the opportunity for relationships enhancement has passed and the combination of a dopaminergic and a phosphodiesterase inhibitor is likely even worse than just taking the phosphodiesterase inhibitor alone.



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.

Talk to us.!



Price comparison krachai dam


By Serge Kreutz


During our current promotional period, we ship krachai dam, 450 grams for 85 US dollars, including shipping. This translates (85÷450) into 0.19 US dollars per gram. This is the cheapest krachai dam on the market.

If you prefer our product in capsules, you can purchase 400 capsules of 500 mg each for the same price, 85 US dollars. This is 200 grams net. The price per gram (85÷200) is 0.425 US dollars per gram.

On ebay, you can buy 180 caps @ 350 mg for 17.83 US dollars, or (180x0.35=63grams), which translates (17.83÷63) into 0.283 US dollars per gram. This is slightly cheaper than our capsules, but more expensive than our loose extract.

Please note that krachai dam has a pleasant gingery taste. It can easily be mixed into sauces, curries, or even just warm water. Thus, no need, really, for capsules.

On Amazon, you can buy 100 capsules of an unspecified weight for 40 US dollars. Assuming 500 mg per capsule, this would be 50 grams, or a price per gram (40÷50) of 0.8 US dollars, more than 4 times the price of our cheapest promotional offer.

Our own krachai dam (kaempferia parviflora) is also on Amazon. The regular price on Amazon is 250 US dollars. Here, on our own page, we currently sell for a promotional price of 85 US dollars. Same product.

For a definite effect, dosages can be 1 to 3 grams, or 2 to 6 capsules, three times daily. Thus, small bottles of 100 caps won't get you very far.

The packaging is an additional good reason to buy our product. We package in double-layer food-grade paper bags before inserting into plastic containers. Thus there is no contiguity between our product and any plastic. This is important because most plastics can leach chemicals with estrogenic activity. You probably don't want that in a male enhancement supplement.

If you look at the websites of manufacturers of motorhomes, or if you look at motorhome magazines, or even when you view units at motor shows, you will encounter mostly beautiful sofa groups, inviting upholstery, and loads of interior schnickschnack.

This, by the way, also happens with the living room or kitchen sets you see and buy at Ikea.

Why?

Because once you start to occupy such a unit, whether your new motorhome or the set purchased from Ikea, you will have to accommodate all the things you need in your daily life. And you will notice that you never have enough storage space.

Now, if you live in a stationary house, you may be able to set aside some rooms just for storage.

But in a mobile home, you are more limited. So, if indeed you buy a unit that impresses with beautiful upholstery and design schnickschnack, you will find yourself shifting bags that you place on your sofa, then the table, then the beds, then back to the sofa, and so on. Your living room will look like a rumpelkammer.

For the sales staff of motorhome showrooms on the one side, and for you on the other side, the motorhome serves different purposes.

For them, it’s a means for generating income.

For you, it’s a practical extension of yourself, or that is what it should be.

Their attitude is the same as that of a wheeler dealer. Nobody in the world polishes cars as diligently as second-hand car salesmen. Because they know that potential customers are easy to impress by a neat appearance. Even if the engine may hang after less than a thousand kilometers.

The purpose of a motorhome is efficiency in whatever your endeavors are in life. Whether you pursue business or pleasure, a motorhome allows you to be close to where the action is.

A motorhome primarily is a box in which to take along the things you need in life. Motorhome living is not a purpose in itself.

And then, you need a place where you can rest. The bedding has to be comfortable, not too hard. And you don’t want to be disturbed by bad odors or noise. And you want your rest place at a comfortable temperature.

You wake up like a king.

How photogenic your bedding, is of minor importance to you (but very important to sales staff).

A motorhome has to be built as an optimal sleeping place. Because whatever goals you pursue in life, you will be more successful if you sleep really well.

Potential motorhome buyers from Europe and North America are usually not very aware of technologies to optimize sleep quality through structural features.

Because what you need in cold climates is just either heating or proper blankets.

But in tropical countries the problem is heat, not cold weather.

During nights in the tropics, it would be immensely comfortable to just sleep outside. But you can’t do that because of mosquitoes and other animals that are after your blood.

So, people sleep inside, with windows closed (also advisable for security reasons). But buildings in tropical countries heat up. Even when the outside climate would be just ideal to sleep, the interior of buildings feels stuffy, and people have to use electric fans or air conditioning.

Who sleeps well in air conditioned rooms or with an electric fan blowing at you all night?

Motorhomes in tropics have to be equipped with exhaust fans (exchanging all inside air with new outside air in less than 1 minute), and many openings that are designed to be kept open at night. So that owners can enjoy a good rest in a fantastic tropical night climate.



Tongkatali.org - Durian addiction and optimal health



By Serge Kreutz


Many people in Southeast Asia believe that eating durian will make them stout, or even fat.

But they are wrong. Durians, or more precisely, durian flakes are an excellent choice for a weight-loss diet.

And here is why.

First of all, it's not what you eat that makes you gain weight, but how much of it goes into your stomach.

Better read the above again.

Durians, or durian flakes, are a very satisfying food.

Satisfying is not the same as satiating.

A large bowl of boiled beans or corn porridge may be satiating (you are full), but your taste buds are unlikely to be contented with such a bland meal. Your mouth will salivate when you smell something else more delicious.

This would be unlikely after you have eaten durian. And it's not because you would necessarily be full. But you are satisfied. You do not crave other food. You don’t want anything else.

On the other hand, if you eat fresh durian, you cannot just consume one bite. The whole fruit has to be eaten, because otherwise it will spoil, or it's stink will spoil your social environment. A durian fruit, once it has been purchased, has to be eaten soon, the sooner the better. This can translate into generous servings, even if you share a fruit with two friends.

Fresh durian is hard to store. Your house, your apartment (the whole block), your refrigerator, all your other food, your car, your clothes, everything will stink of durian.

Furthermore, durian, the most expensive fruit in the world, is to costly to throw away.

So, naturally, people think, better eat it than discard it. This leads to overeating.

If you overeat on durian, you may gain weight. The same goes for overeating on pizza, pasta, potatoes, and porridge.

The great advantage of dried durian flakes when compared to fresh durian is that you can limit quantities at will. You may just nibble on the equivalent to maybe 5 or 10 raisins. That is enough for the taste to stay in your mouth for 15 minutes, and a memory of the taste for an hour or so. You won't crave other food for that length of time.

And then, durians, in spite of not being salty at all, make people want to drink water.

No problem, water has no calories. Drink as much as you wish. It's healthy and temporarily increases internal stomach pressure, which contributes to a sense of satiation.

But what if you don't feel like stopping consumption of durian flakes all day?

Of course, for the connoisseur and aficionado, durian flakes are tempting. There is pleasure in eating on and on.

But wait a moment.

What was it what you read twice at the entrance of this article?

It's not what you eat that makes you gain weight, but how much of it goes into your stomach.

Your stomach that is. Not your mouth. You can handle (or should we say mouthle) your durian flakes the same style as a vintner does with the wine he produces.

A vintner tastes it all along in the production process and he has to, in order to determine fermentation interruption... but he doesn't swallow, otherwise he'd be drunk before noon every day.

A vintner tastes his wine, and spits it out.

Brilliant idea.

The taste, and the taste pleasure, is in the mouth. But unless you want to get drunk, wine ia a burden to the digestive tract.

So, if you are really determined to lose weight, a lot of weight, consume durian flakes without swallowing them. Chew them and melt them in your mouth, then discard by spitting.

Be more civilized than Indian or Burmese areca/betel chewers. Don't spit on the street. Bring a few smallest size plastic bags along.

This approach to food consumption, of course, doesn't have to be restricted to durian flakes. And, by the way, it has a name. It's called kreutzing food, or the Serge Kreutz diet.

Durian flakes are ideal for a Serge Kreutz weight loss diet because their taste is so satisfying, omitting any craving for other food.
