Tongkat ali, dopamine, and eternal relationships desire, part 1


By Serge Kreutz


Natural Dopaminergic Research, 2019


L-dopa, mucuna pruriens, and dopamine agonists

Dopamine agonists have been around for many decades, and their pro-libido effect has been known for a long time. The assortment of dopamine agonists includes L-dopa, mucuna pruriens, bromocriptine, cabergoline, pergolide, pramipexole, lisuride, apomorphine, and a few more.



Dopamine agonists are used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Even after decades of attempts to come up with alternative regimens, the gold standard for raising dopamine in the brain is still L-dopa. As long as the desired treatment effects are achieved with L-dopa in conjunct with carbidopa (Sinemet, Pharmacopa, Atamet, Stalevo), physicians often do not see a necessity to add any of the other medications.



L-dopa occurs naturally in mucuna pruriens (velvet beans), and unlike what is the case for other Parkinson’s remedies, no prescription is needed for mucuna pruriens. Furthermore, if a mucuna pruriens extract is used, the carbidopa that is included with L-dopa Parkinson’s medications, can be avoided.

Carbidopa is added to L-dopa Parkinson’s medications to reduce the side effects of high dosages of L-dopa, but carbidopa also reduces the pro-libido effects. Thus, when one considers relationships enhancement with L-dopa, or any dopaminergic, L-dopa-containing mucuna pruriens should be the first choice.



The emphasis here is on "L-dopa-containing" because unfortunately, most mucuna pruriens supplements sold in healthfood stores in the US, or on Amazon, are a cheap Indian cultivar of mucuna pruriens which contains practically no L-dopa. The Indian mucuna pruriens was and is planted as animal feedstock, and was cultivated precisely to not contain any L-dopa because a high L-dopa percentage in mucuna pruriens preempts weight gain in lifestock (and humans, by the way). The best L-dopa-containing mucuna pruriens is wild-growing mucuna pruriens from forests in Thailand.



Among the Parkinson’s medications developed as alternatives to L-dopa, apomorphine (brand name: Uprima) was temporarily sold in Europe as a medication for erectile dysfunction. But that was wrong marketing. Dopamine agonists don’t work for erections like phosphodiesterase inhibitors. They work on libido. But who says that great relationships desire is less relevant than erections?



Uprima was a disappointment for men whose erection problems are vascular. But Uprima was sold as a medication for erectile dysfunction (at an exorbitant price) because erectile dysfunction is an accepted medical condition, but low libido is not.

While phosphodiesterase inhibitors like sildenafil citrate, or the natural alternative kaempferia parviflora, and yohimbine work on erections, and while elevating testosterone levels is of an unpredictable, questionable pro-relationships nature, dopamine agonists, including mucuna pruriens, can enhance both relationships excitement and orgasmic intensity reliably.



Because dopamine agonists suppress the hormone prolactin, which in turn suppresses testosterone, dopamine agonists can, in people with elevated prolactin levels, function in the same way as a testosterone replacement therapy would. This mostly happens in patients with pituitary cancer, which typically expresses itself in strongly elevated prolactin levels. Those afflicted by the disease have very low testosterone levels. Thus, for them, dopaminergic agents work as hormonal therapy.

Tongkat ali's active ingredients have not been identified... but it's probably not eurycomanone


There are hundreds of specific chemicals present in tongkat ali roots. They mostly belong to the following classes of chemicals:

steroids

quassinoids

coumarins

alkanoids

anthraquinone

triterpenes

flavonoids

The most prevalent ingredient of tongkat ali root, of course, is cellulose (fiber).

Of the more complicated chemicals, two are fairly easy two detect:

eurycomanone and eyrycomanol

Both are quassinoids.

Because eurycomanone is typical for tongkat ali and because it can be detected by liquid chromatography, it has been suggested that eurycomanone is used as a marker chemical.

This means that if an unknown substance is run through a liquid chromatograph, and the absorption pattern of eurycomanone shows on the filter paper, then one can assume that the unknown compound is tongkat ali, or contains tongkat ali.

This has nothing to do with an analysis of what causes the testosterone and libido boosting effects if tongkat ali.

A marker is a chemical that IDENTIFIES a substance. This is different from EFFICACY, the effect-causing chemical.

The effects of tongkat ali and tongkat ali extract may be caused by alkaloids or steroids, or any yet unresearched or undiscovered chemical constituents of tongkat ali root. If you have a faible for chemistry, you can see a yet uncompleted list of chemical constituents of tongkat ali roots below.

One thing is sure: any claim of standardization to certain levels of eurycomanone is cheap propaganda, not science.

If you consider buying tongkat ali, don't be so gullible. Buy something with government approval. That gives you at least some protection.

Here, for those chemically inclined, an expanded list of the not-yet mentioned chemical constituents of tongkat ali. Any of them may be responsible for the desired effects. Most likely, several compounds work in unison.

Squalene-type triterpenes:

eurylene

14-deacetyl eurylene longilene peroxide

Further:

n-pentyl â-carboline- 1-propionate

1-hydroxy-9-methoxycanthin-6-one 5-hydroxymethyl-9-methoxycanthin-6-one

19 known ß-caroline alkaloids

3 ß-caroline lkaloids

1-hydroxy-9-methoxycanthin-6-one

1-hydroxy- 9-methoxycanthin-6-one

Two biphenylneoligans:

2-hydroxy-3,2’,6’-trimethoxy-4’-(2,3-epoxy-1-hydroxypropyl)-5-(3-hydroxy-l-propenyl)-biphenyl

2-hydroxy-3,2’-dimethoxy-4’-(2,3-epoxy-1-hydroxypropyl)-5-(3-hydroxy-1-propenyl)biphenyl)

Another 27 quassinoids:

eurycolactone D, E, F

eurycomanone-type C20 and C19

one klaineanone-type C20

six eurycomalactone-type C19 quassinoids

An epoxy group type of eurycomalactone

pasakbumin-C

13a, 21-epoxyeurycomanone eurylactone

eurycomaoside

Furthermore, for comprehensiveness, there are also 83 volatile compounds, including:

3-phenoxy-1-propanol

2-phenoxy-ethanol

4-ethynyl-4-hydroxy-3 5, 5-trimethyl-2-cyclohex-1-enone

benzoic acid

acetic acid

octanoic acid

Tongkat ali and psychological calories


By Serge Kreutz

Modern Nutrition, 2019

“Psychological calories” is a new way to look at the nutritional value of food. And “psychological calories” is the reason why you can so easily lose as much weight as you want on the tongkat ali diet. We all know that the food we eat can be measured on a calorie scale. Calories are the energy which food provides when being burned in digestion.

Ideally, we should consume food that provides precisely the amount of energy we need for optimal physiological function. Without becoming overweight.

However, humans, and most other animals, lack an organ to sense the energy value of food.

While humans, and other animals, do have sensations related to the consumption of food, the system lacks fine-tuning.

We can feel hunger if we clearly lack food, and we can feel satiation when we have eaten enough or too much. In between these two poles are sensations like appetite (a desire for food because of its palatability) and food aversions (because we associate it with events of physical or mental discomfort).

All of this is very psychological, and much more complex than, for example, feeling too hot or too cold, or energetic or tired.

However, conventional nutritional science, as well as all so-far devised weight loss diets other than the tongkat ali diet, have failed to take into account the psychological satiation value of food.

One thing is sure: the psychological satiation value of food and the burn value of food do not match. And it is the awareness of this discrepancy that makes the tongkat ali diet so successful.

The tongkat ali diet teaches you to differentiate between the conventional nutritional value of food (the energy value, or the health effects of a type of food) and the psychological nutritional value of food (the taste pleasure that food provides).

Food cravings and overeating all have very little to do with the conventional nutritional value of food. They are psychological.

Your stomach and intestines never have a craving for food. Anyway, from the esophagus onwards, there are no taste receptors. If anything, your stomach and intestines would have been grateful if you would not have stuffed them with all that shit you have been eating all life long.

Your stomach and intestines would prefer a light burden, without all those irritants you have given them to digest because of their pleasant taste.

The tongkat ali diet is an entirely new approach to food consumption.

It starts with strictly treating separately the food for your stomach and intestines on the one side (conventional nutrition), and the food for your mouth and brain on the other side (the food that you eat for pleasure).

You can eat any food for its pleasure value, and as much of it as you want.

Just don’t swallow. Discard not into your esophagus. Discard into a plastic bag.

The barrier that you erect is not the lips and teeth of your mouth. The barrier must be your throat.

You can let plain water pass, as much as you desire, or even more than that. For anything else, use strict control. A little fruit every day, minimal quantities of other food that slide down your throaf even though you would prefer to discard in the other direction.

Psychological calories, on the other hand, you can eat as many as your heart and brain desire. You can play with the many exciting tastes of food all day long. No restrictions. Anyway, the tastes of delicious foods are a smart drug, and the best antidepressant of all.

Just stay with the tongkat ali diet approach. Don’t swallow.

I guarantee you will have more pleasure from food than ever before. And you will maintain ideal body weight, without any real effort.




Tongkatali.org - Mainstream monotheistic religions and drugs


By Serge Kreutz


Young people on the path from being a child to being an adult are biologically primed to search for excitement. Basically, the excitement they are primed to search for, is relationships. They are also primed to experiment, and easy to attract to things to which many of their peers are attracted.

If they are sexually frustrated, or at least, if their sense for excitement is frustrated, they easily become disciples of teachings that promise them a grand solution.

This is why mainstream Western religions need sexually repressive morals. In the social orders maintained by such religions, the more their relationships expression is curtailed, the easier it is to turn young people into fanatics. Islam excels in this.

To be willing to sacrifice one’s life and to become a suicide bomber is the ultimate in fanaticism. (youtube video see here) And a paradise in which a man who died as martyr will avail of an eternal stream of young beautiful virgins to play with, is the ultimate of a grand-solution promise.

As an alternative to relationships, drugs can provide the excitement young people are looking for. Not that this would be a healthy solution. But young people who do find excitement through drugs are at least harder to instrumentalize for religious fanaticism.
