Test Delicious and Potent Black Ginger Extract with 5% methoxyflavones.
Sometimes referred to as "Thai Ginseng," Black Ginger Is Quickly Becoming One of The Top Tonic Herbs.
Dosage and Potency
This extract has a whopping 5% methoxyflavone content, so the dosage is quite low.
The recommended dose is one sixteenth(1/16) of a teaspoon, which is roughly 200 mg.
Thus each 200 mg serving contains roughly 10 mg of methoxyflavones.
Each 20 gram jar contains roughly 100 dosages.
So what you have here is a purely potent black ginger extract at a measly $0.35 per dosage, or only $0.28 with the 4 pack option.
Completely different than your regular ginger...
Kaempferia parviflora, also known as black ginger or Thai black ginger, is quite different from regular ginger (Zingiber officinale.)
It’s a different species altogether, with a different appearance, taste, aroma, and active compounds.
The Top Benefits of Black Ginger Extract For Men
Black ginger contains compounds like methoxyflavones that may help boost T production in men. This male hormone is important for muscle mass, bone density, libido, energy levels, and more.
Early studies indicate black ginger may improve sperm concentration, motility, and morphology in infertile men. It’s thought to exert antioxidant effects that protect sperm.
Black ginger extracts have exhibited anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects that may benefit prostate health. It may help prevent enlargement and protect against oxidative damage.
By optimizing T levels, black ginger may act as a natural aphrodisiac and improve sexual desire and performance in men. This can boost libido.
Some research notes improved exercise endurance in athletes taking black ginger. It may reduce fatigue and allow men to workout longer and harder.
Compounds in black ginger like methoxyflavones have shown potential to improve memory, focus, and cognition in men. This can enhance mental clarity.
So in summary, black ginger shows particular promise for enhancing T levels, fertility, prostate health, libido, physical performance, cognitive function.
How do the methoxyflavones in black ginger help boost T levels?
Stimulating Luteinizing Hormone
Methoxyflavones may stimulate the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland. LH then signals the testes to produce more testosterone.
Reducing Aromatase Activity
Methoxyflavones can inhibit the enzyme aromatase, which converts T into estrogen. Lower aromatase activity means more T remains available.
Blocking Sex Hormone Binding Globulin
These flavonoids may block SHBG, a protein that binds testosterone making it unavailable. This leaves more free T.
Studies show black ginger can lower cortisol levels. Cortisol is a stress hormone that can interfere with testosterone production.
Improving Blood Flow
Better circulation to the testes delivers more oxygen and nutrients to assist testosterone synthesis. Antioxidants in black ginger improve blood flow.
So in summary, methoxyflavones appear to work through multiple pathways - from stimulating LH to reducing inflammatory damage and improving circulation - to help optimize testosterone status in men.
A Natural Alternative to Viagra?
Black ginger extract, derived from Kaempferia parviflora, has been found to have potential PDE5 inhibitory effects, similar to prescription drugs.
Several studies have demonstrated the PDE5 inhibitory activities of black ginger extract, which is the predominant phosphodiesterase found in the corpus cavernosum and represents an important pharmacological target for erectile dysfunction.
These findings suggest that black ginger extract may work on PDE5 and could potentially be used as a natural alternative to pharmaceutical PDE5 inhibitors like Viagra.
Overall, black ginger shows promise in improving erectile function and sexual health for men. But it is not likely as fast-acting or potent as prescription medications.
It may be considered an alternative natural supportive supplement, but not a direct replacement for drugs to treat erectile dysfunction.
Does Black Ginger extract have benefits for Women?
Yes, black ginger extract offers several potential health benefits for women as well.
Improves Blood Circulation
Better circulation provides nutrients and oxygen to female reproductive organs and tissues.
Systemic anti-inflammatory actions of black ginger compounds benefit conditions like arthritis, IBS, and autoimmune diseases.
Methoxyflavones can help regulate estrogen levels. This may ease PMS symptoms, menopause transition, and menstrual irregularities.
Early studies indicate methoxyflavones may inhibit proliferation of certain breast cancer cells. More research is needed.
These flavonoids may support bone density by stimulating osteoblasts involved in bone formation and remodeling.
Women report enhanced focus, memory and clarity of thought with methoxyflavones. This could help with productivity and multitasking.
Methoxyflavones may influence metabolism, fat burning and energy levels in a manner that aids female weight loss efforts.
Some research notes improved markers of egg quality in infertility patients taking methoxyflavone supplements. More studies are warranted.
In summary, while more research is still needed, the preliminary evidence indicates methoxyflavones can positively influence hormone regulation, breast and bone health, skin, cognition, weight management, pain relief, and fertility for women.
Who Should NOT take it?
Black ginger extract is generally considered safe for most people. However, there are some contraindications and precautions to consider:
Hypersensitivity to ginger: Individuals who are allergic to ginger or the Zingiberaceae family should avoid black ginger extract>
Bleeding disorders: Black ginger might increase the risk of bleeding, so individuals with bleeding disorders should use it with caution or avoid it.
Cardiac disease: There is a caution for individuals with heart conditions, so they should consult a healthcare provider before using black ginger extract.
Avoid taking black ginger extract if you are already using PDE5 prescription medications.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding: Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctors before using black ginger extract.
Surgery: It is recommended to stop using black ginger extract at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery, as it might affect blood clotting and cause extra bleeding during and after surgery.
In general, it's important to consult a healthcare provider before using black ginger extract, especially for individuals with existing medical conditions or those taking other medications.
