Mobile Internet access in Thailand


All cell phone operators in Thailand offer prepaid Internet access per day, week, or month, or per set chunks of data transfer, measured as megabytes or gigabytes. Time-based arrangements are much more economical.

Foreigners can buy SIM cards at shops of the mobile operators, and at some phone shops.

There is great diversity of Internet packages, and many promotions are poorly published.

Buying tongkat ali


By Serge Kreutz


So you have decided to try some tongkat ali. But before buying, some important decisions are to be made.

Do you want tongkat ali roots, or do you want tongkat ali extract?

If you buy roots, the cost of shipping will be much higher than the roots themselves.

Brewing your own tea will also be time-consuming.

If you want extract, you first have to decide whether you want genuine tongkat ali or fake tongkat ali?

Unfortunately, more than 90 percent of all tongkat ali extract on the market is simply fake.

There are two kinds of fakes:

1. those that are any root powder or plant, mostly tribulus terrestris. These simply have no effect at all.

2. powders laced with sildenafil analogues, often at high dosages. These have an effect, just like Viagra has. But it's not the hormonal effect of tongkat ali. It's an effect of sildenafil, tadalafil, or vardenafil. And unfortunately, these fakes regularly kill users.

xxxxxxxxxx

Tongkat ali is a root, and as such, it consists mostly of cellulose. Cellulose is not a pharmacologically active substance. The pharmacologically active ingredients only form a very small part of the root.

The raw root, whether powdered or chipped, is not fit for human consumption. This is not just the case because humans cannot digest cellulose but also because the raw root often is infested with fungi and bacteria, some of which are harmful. This is absolutely normal for anything that grows underground. Is there anything humans would pull out of the soil and consume uncooked?

Raw root powder is commonly sold in Malaysia as well as in the US, both in brick-and-mortar shops and by Internet retailers.

There is, of course, nothing wrong with root powder or chipped root, as long as you know how to handle it.

If you do not buy a ready-made extract, you have to prepare the root powder or chipped root as your own extract. This can be a liquid extract or a dry one. If you prepare a liquid extract, you will have to consume a lot of fluid to get a proper dosage. Producing your own dry extract will take a lot of time.

Root powder in capsules is nonsense because one should not ingest raw tongkat ali root, even not if it is packaged in gelatin capsules. The most likely effect of ingesting raw root powder is diarrhea, caused by salmonella bacteria. And if you are unlucky, you get a strain that causes typhoid fever.

Tongkat ali is so bitter, and tastes so lousy, that the only way one can ingest a proper dosage is to get it down as quickly as possible. Capsules of dried tongkat ali extract are a good solution because extract is concentrated, and you can swallow the tongkat ali without tasting it.

The only problem with dried extract in capsules is that you are easily cheated. It is very difficult to check yourself whether you actually get tongkat ali extract, or just tongkat ali root powder, or something else altogether.

Tongkat ali root has to be boiled, and before being boiled. Use about half a liter of water for 50 gram of root powder or chipped root. 50 gram of root powder or chipped root will yield about 2 normal dosages, or a single dosage for an experienced user or a bodybuilding athlete.

I know what I’m talking about because I did make my own extract. I did so because I am a suspicious character, and so that I could write about it.

I used 500 gram of chipped root, soaked in 5 liter of water for 24 hours. I brought the whole thing to a boil, and then filtered the water. I then left the 5 liters of water for almost 2 days on an electric stove with heat control (about 50 centigrade) until I got a thick sap. I further heated the sap in an electric oven (about 40 centigrade) and then got a rather hard crust. Working this crust through an electric coffee mill, I ended up with about 10 gram of powdered extract. Which means: an extract of the strength 1:50. 10 dosages out of 500 gram.

I discussed this extraction process with two German pharmacists and the assistants of a plant analytical laboratory of a university. They all assured me that mine has been a proper extraction process.

There isn’t much technology to preparing water-based extracts. The solvent has to be water, and just water, otherwise the result would not be an aqueous (water) extract. In proper extracting facilities, they have integrated machines that speed up the evaporation by doing it under high pressure, or by other means. Some companies that sell such evaporating equipment have patents on these machines.

But if a website claims that they have patented the extraction by water of tongkat ali, then that’s bulls. They just want you to believe that their extract is special (so that you won’t buy somewhere else), and that it justifies an inflated price.

Tongkat ali has been researched well, though not in full. But one thing is certain: the traditional use is as an aqueous extract (extraction by water, as in tea or coffee), and that way, it has been used in Southeast Asia for hundreds of years.

Other extraction possibilities would be by ethanol (alcohol) or chloroform, and a plethora of other chemical solvents. But such extracts have only been tested recently, and only one thing is clear: their LD50 values are much worse than those for aqueous extract. I would not experiment with tongkat ali extracts in which the solvent has been anything but water.

Extract strength is another critical topic. I know from my own experiments that 100 grams of root yield a dried extract of 2 gram. So, 1:50 seems to be genuine strength of an aqueous extract.

Of course, 1:100 sounds much sexier. But who is to check on such claims? Even if a new trader should decide to proclaim that his extract is 1:1000, who is going to examine whether the claim is true?

A 1:100 extract, or one that is proclaimed to be 1:1000, doesn’t necessarily contain more active ingredients. In order to turn a 1:50 extract into one that is 1:100, I really just have to discard half of the 1:50 extract. I can do so by passing it through a smaller mesh, which will just remove the coarser part of the ground crust I got from drying the aqueous extract.

Thus, turning a 1:50 extract into a 1:100 extract means just that they sell half the extract, probably for double the price. It says NOTHING about the efficacy of the extract.

Furthermore, there are justified suspicions that what is sold as 1:100 extract may only be root powder. I have seen documents on the FDA website (www.fda.gov) that show that people marketing 1:100 extract capsules have just applied for a registration of tongkat ali powder in capsule form, not of extract in capsules. To see these documents on www.fda.gov, please use their search engine and enter the search term “eurycoma”. The scientific, Latin name of tongkat ali is eurycoma longifolia, and official documents deal with the plant under this name. Do not search for “tongkat ali”, as this will not get you to the FDA correspondence about the product which is sold as 1:100. A search for the combined name, “eurycoma longifolia”, doesn’t seem to work well on the FDA site. It is best to just search for “eurycoma” only.

I also cannot recommend purchasing from Internet spam sites.

Their expertise is not tongkat ali but Internet marketing. They know how to force their own site(s) to the top of search engine rankings, and then hunt sales commissions from the manufacturers whose products they promote. This is why the information they provide is not their own but just taken from other sites (like mine) and then more or less reworded.

I believe that it makes sense to buy tongkat ali or tongkat ali extract at the origin. From a company whose product is tongkat ali, and not from a company whose product is Internet marketing, and who will sell any merchandise for which they can get a high search engine ranking.

Tongkatali.org Butea superba doping


Butea superba improves athletic performance in humans. This has been well established, even in research by the Thai Doping Control Center at the Mahidol University in Bangkok. See scientific study here:

https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/12f9/c34f3def0c87f0c968df48d1c6c334e712f9.pdf

Article continues below printscreens:





However, butea superba is not yet on the list of prohibited substances of the World Anti Doping Agency, WADA.

It's not that they wouldn't like to prohibit it. But they don't know how to test for it.

Butea superba affects the whole hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Thus, ratios of hormonal metabolites are not skewed as they would be with outright testosterone or anabolic steroids doping.


Tongkatali.org's Phantom food


By Serge Kreutz


If you are new to the idea of kreutzing food, and not yet convinced, you will probably come up with the following objection:

“Well, if I don’t swallow my food, I won’t be satiated. I will be hungry all day!”

The trick is that you should drink plenty of water with the meals that you do not swallow.

If you do this, your mouth will have all the taste sensations you love, and your stomach will be full, but you do not burden your body with an oversupply of nutrients.

It is easy to be satiated from the taste sensations of food and a stomach full of water. This combination feels the same as having swallowed a meal. You could label such a meal phantom food.

Of course, the water will not stay in your stomach as long as a fatty pork chop or a chili con carne. And after an hour or so, you will feel hungry again.

So what?

Feeling hungry more often during the day is a positive effect of kreutzing food, not a negative one.

Hunger, the urge to eat, has about the same quality as libido, the urge to have relationships.

Our urge for relationships is not a disturbance of a happy life. It is an essential component. A good number of today’s humans know this. Former generations mostly lacked the appropriate understanding and took efforts to kill their relationships drive. How stupid!

If you do not have relationships appetite first, you cannot experience the utmost satisfaction from orgasms. And then your life is devoid of sense.

It is a similar story with hunger, so not quite as extreme. But certainly, all food tastes better if you feel hungry, just as all relationships feels better when you have strong desires.

Don’t prematurely kill your hunger!

If you eat for the pleasure of food, then stuffing your stomach with solids is as stupid as premature ejaculation.

The wise man who can derive optimal pleasure from engaging in relationships intercourse will postpone ejaculation. Because once he has ejaculated, the pleasure potential is no longer there.

And once your stomach is full, food in your mouth does not taste as great as it does before you filled it.

If I do not swallow food beyond what all by itself passes through my throat, I can eat for two hours.

Actually, I play with tastes just as I play with my relationships fantasies during intercourse.

To play with food, I may fill 5 to 10 small bowels with about 50 ml of coconut milk, one of the best neutral carriers of taste, and an ideal ingredient for kreutzing. Coconut milk, of course, is the carrier of taste for curries.

But to play with tastes, I don’t just cook curries, and I never use other peoples recipes.

I heat the coconut milk in the bowls, and put fresh milled coriander seeds in one, fresh sliced ginger in the next, wasabe powder in yet another, cardamom in the next, and so on.

Be aware that with some of these taste carriers you have to add sweetness to get the full body of flavor. This sweetness can either com from plain sugar, or palm sugar, or even sauted onions. Without the sweet ingredient, tastes from roots and seeds may have some hallow bitterness, even in coconut milk.

I then play with tastes. I roll a teaspoon of wasabe coconut milk, spit it out, drink some water, take a teaspoon of a coriander / cardamom mixture in coconut milk, spit it out, drink some water, and then try a teaspoon of fennel coconut milk.

I may then mix some ginger coconut milk with some wasabe coconut milk (you don’t even need sweetness with that), or any other two. And after mixing several such bowls, I have a curry… a different one every day.

On other days, I do the same with cheeses and red wines. All without swallowing either. My stomach only gets water in between the tastes.

But even if I do not fill my stomach with noticeable quantities of nutrient-containing food, I will get bored after some time, or become interested in other activities.

Be assured that I feel satiated, even so I have consumed almost no calories.

You may call it a phantom meal, but the psychological effect is the same as that of a traditional meal, minus the burden, heartburn, headache triggers, and intestinal irritants. And minus any gourmet obesity.



Standardised water‐soluble extract of Eurycoma longifolia, Tongkat ali, as testosterone booster for managing men with late‐onset hypogonadism?

M. I. B. M. Tambi M. K. Imran R. R. Henkel

Summary

In most countries, millions of people are relying on herbal medicines as remedy for numerous ailments. In South‐East Asia, Eurycoma longifolia Jack, also known as ‘Malaysian ginseng’ or Tongkat ali, is used to combat stress and disease and to improve physical strength. Moreover, the compounds of the roots of this plant are reported to have aphrodisiac and testosterone enhancing effects in the rat. Considering that human studies are not available, 76 of 320 patients suffering from late‐onset hypogonadism (LOH) were given 200 mg of a standardised water‐soluble extract of Tongkat ali for 1 month. The Ageing Males’ Symptoms (AMS) according to the standardised rating scale and the serum testosterone concentration were taken. Results show that treatment of LOH patients with this Tongkat ali extract significantly (P < 0.0001) improved the AMS score as well as the serum testosterone concentration. While before treatment only 10.5% of the patients did not show any complaint according to the AMS scale and 35.5% had normal testosterone levels, after the completed treatment 71.7% and 90.8% of the patients showed normal values, respectively. Thus, Tongkat ali extract appears to be useful as a supplement in overcoming the symptoms of LOH and for the management of hypogonadism.
