Yohimbe or yohimbine – which is better?


By Serge Kreutz


I have long been undecided on what would have the better effect: yohimbe, the bark, or yohimbine, the pharmaceutical.

I am now convinced that yohimbine, the pharmaceutical, is to be recommended over yohimbe, the bark.

The bark contains a good number of alkaloids, of which yohimbine is just one. Other indole alkaloids found in yohimbe bark are the yohimbine stereoisomers “-yohimbine” and allo-yohimbine, as well as ajamalicin, dihydroyohimbine, corynanthein, dihydrocorynanthein, and corynanthin (rauhinbin).

While some of the other alkaloids found in yohimbe bark have been suspected to aid in the bark’s function as aphrodisiac, their pro-relationships effect definitely is not as pronounced as the one of yohimbine. Other effects may be attributed to them.

Traditional uses of yohimbe bark are not limited to its pro-relationships effects. Yohimbe bark has also long been smoked or otherwise ingested to facilitate hallucinogenic experiences. I have tried smoking the bark. It doesn’t burn well, and as I am a non-tobacco smoker, I don’t have much tolerance for inhaling smoke. I smoked a mere quarter of a gram of the bark. It caused a mild nausea nothing pleasurable.

I have read sources on the Internet in which people with a history of “drug abuse” cooked some 7 teaspoons of bark as a tea. The word “tea” suggests that they didn’t ingest the cooked bark but just the water in which they tried to extract the bark.

But yohimbine is difficult to extract by boiling. In the industrial production of yohimbine, hydrochloric acid is used. Stomach acidity is needed to extract the yohimbe from ingested yohimbe powder. Yohimbe tea will not do.

I have tried the ingestion of about 1 teaspoon of finely ground yohimbe bark, simmered in orange juice under addition of about 1 gram Vitamin C. This was not a tea; there was no bark leftover. The ground yohimbe floated in the orange juice.

From this concoction, I had a mental effect that I usually do not feel from ingesting yohimbine tablets or yohimbe extracts. It gave me a headache. The genital effect was lesser.

On the other hand, sleep has been even more difficult after ingesting yohimbe bark instead of yohimbine, the pharmaceutical. From an honest 10 mg of yohimbine, I can have a pronounced pro-relationships effect and usually can find sleep some 20 hours later.

If I ingest raw powdered yohimbe bark in an amount small enough that it doesn’t give me a headache, I have very little pro-relationships benefit but may not be able to sleep for 24 hours or more. If I haven’t ingested the yohimbe bark in the morning right after getting up, this can add up to 36 or more hours without sleep.

For yohimbe bark, the sleep-prohibiting effect sets in at a dosage still too small for a pronounced pro-relationships effect, and it seems that yohimbe alkaloids other than yohimbine are harder to break down by my metabolic system. Therefore, I judge the synthesis of yohimbine as a clear progress.

I assume that the relationship between yohimbe bark and yohimbine is similar to the relationship between raw opium and morphine or heroin. I have never consumed heroin but have once been on morphine (for a tonsils operation), and I have once (in India) smoked opium. I have also talked to a number of addicts in Europe. They characterized morphine and heroin as much “cleaner” in its effect than opium. Smoking opium largely immobilizes, and opium smokers are drowsed. Those who do morphine or heroin usually are not. I get an idea when they characterize opium as “dirty” drug. It affects all kinds of bodily functions while morphine and heroin are said to just give a persistent orgasmic pleasure. (This is obviously no endorsement of morphine or heroin; one pays too dearly for a kick a few times.)

I have considerable experience with yohimbe bark, yohimbe extracts, and pure yohimbine. I, too, would describe yohimbine, the pharmaceutical, as “cleaner” in effect than yohimbe, the bark. Yohimbine is more concentrated on relationships effects, and it doesn’t give me a headache, or make me feel dumb. Not at all; rather it promotes mental alertness.

Obviously, yohimbe is more readily available in most countries than is yohimbine. In the US, yohimbe bark is sold in health food stores while yohimbine is a prescription drug. That’s a disadvantage to US consumers.

It’s a disadvantage not only because the effects of yohimbine are more specifically pro-relationships than the effects of the alkaloid mixture of the bark. It’s a disadvantage also because it is almost impossible to give proper dosage recommendations for the bark. If you use bark or bark extracts, you will always have to try, and often not have the desired effect because the dosage is too small; but you can’t start with a generous dosage either because you may accidentally just have a good specimen.

Even genuine yohimbe bark varies greatly in its content of yohimbine. It could be 1 percent, but it could also be considerably more or less. How much yohimbine is found in yohimbe bark depends, for example, on what time of the year it is harvested. Exposure to more rain is believed to increase the yohimbine content of yohimbe bark. Exposure to sunlight (after harvesting) is considered to have a negative effect on the yohimbine concentration.

Another problem is that what is sold as yohimbe bark is not always the bark of the Pausinystalia yohimbe (Corynanthe yohimbe) tree but also of the more common Pausinystalia macroceras tree. Even experts have a hard time to keep the two apart, and in West Africa, Pausinystalia macroceras bark is used as a substitute for Pausinystalia yohimbe bark in areas where the latter has become extinct due to over-exploitation. However, Pausinystalia macroceras bark is much lower in yohimbine content; instead it boosts a higher content of the related but largely ineffective alkaloid yohimbinine.

Sure, some yohimbe extract capsules may have a good yohimbine content. Luckily, the first ones I myself have tried were very effective on me. And I have never found a bark extract of similar strength. Many commercial products I tried later were largely ineffective.

Technical Resources International, Inc. reported: “Betz and coworkers (1995) investigated yohimbine in commercial yohimbe products. Gas chromatograph determinations were done on liquids and powders (from capsules and caplets). Virtually all the products tested did not specify on their labels that the product contained yohimbe bark extract. Concentrations of yohimbine in the commercial products ranged from >0.1 to 489 ppm, compared with 7089 ppm in the authentic bark material. Of the 26 products examined, nine contained no quantifiable amount of yohimbine; eight contained only trace amounts (0.1-1 ppm). The authors suggest that the absence of alkaloids in the products indicated that the original extraction was aqueous (because the alkaloids are not particularly water soluble), the extract was extremely diluted in the final dosage form, or no yohimbe bark was used to make the product.”

With yohimbe and yohimbe extracts, one never knows. Most yohimbe products are weak, but occasionally one gets a real strong one on which one can potentially overdose. You can’t go by the labels. The only way to know the strength of the capsules contained in a particular bottle is to try them (or to make a laboratory analysis). When testing a new yohimbe product, I always start with a very low dose, about half a capsule, and then work myself up to several capsules a time, depending on how well a lower dosage worked.

Yohimbe capsules standardized for a certain amount of yohimbine are now emerging on the market. One of the first standardized products was Twinlab’s Yohimbe Fuel for which they claim 8 mg of yohimbine per capsule.

Laboratories sell all kinds of yohimbe extracts, 1:2, 1:4, 1:8, or 1%, 2 %, 4 %. If you see a bottle that claims “Yohimbe Extract”, you don’t know nothing yet. How strong it is may depend on the logics applied by the manufacturer of the specific capsules. Some manufacturers may want to err on the safe side, so they use a weak extract; others may see a market for a brand name of yohimbe extract that actually works. So they may go for a strong extract.

One reason why I recommend yohimbine over yohimbe is that working with yohimbe will waste a lot of time. When you open a bottle, it will take three or four trials until you really can judge the contents. With yohimbine tablets you can be much more certain as to what to expect.

Tongkat ali, rest assured: not standardized for eurycomanone

By Serge Kreutz

Tongkat Ali Research, 2019

Websites claiming to sell tongkat ali standardized for eurycomanone are scams throughout. They are run out of apartments, with sales of a few dozens or a few hundred bottles per year. They don't have a factory and couldn't afford standardization anyway.

This is one of the rare instances where, in hindsight, you have reason to be glad that you were lied to.

Why? Because there is no indication whatsoever that the chemical eurycomanone would be responsible for those parameters for which you bought, or intend to buy, tongkat ali: increased testosterone, increased libido.

Just do a search on Medline, the online medical and scientific database of the US National Institute of Health with abstracts of more than 25 million research papers.

Results:

Eurycomanone testosterone = zero



Eurycomanone libido = zero



It's just not a topic, except for scammers.

But there are hundreds of studies on "tongkat ali testosterone" and "tongkat ali libido".


Why Sumatra Pasak Bumi does not standardize tongkat ali for eurycomanone

We at Sumatra Pasak Bumi do not standardize tongkat ali extract. And it's not because we wouldn't be dedicated to quality. It's because we do not believe in lying to and cheating customers.

We have been in the tongkat ali trade for more than 25 years, and as a company, we have the intention to span several generations. With such a perspective, we don't join marketing fads that come and go.

Sumatra Pasak Bumi manufactures tongkat ali extracts at two ratios, 1:50 and 1:200. The two ratios refer to the number of kilograms of root in relation to one kilogram of extract. It's something we can measure fairly easily with a normal scale.

In the past few years, many websites selling inferior or outright fake tongkat ali have suddenly come up with claims of standardization. 2 percent, 4 percent, 8 percent, 20 percent eurycomanone.

The eurycomanone content of 1 kg of dried tongkat ali root lies in a natural range of in between 0.1 and 0.5 grams.

Using an extraction method of heat and pressure over a certain period of time, one can arrive at extracts that contain between 0.5 and 2 percent of eurycomanone.

To standardize an extract for eurycomanone sounds easy on the paper of labels, and the claim can be worded on websites in a matter of seconds.

But in real life, things are not so simple.

If standardization would be done in accordance to international lab rules, first one would have to establish the exact natural occurence of eurycomanone in any given lot of tongkat ali extract. This requires a chromatograph and time.

Then, if the measured eurycomanone is below what one wants to print truefully on a label, additional eurycomanone would have to be added. There is no other way.

To manufacture pure eurycomanone, it has to be separated from other consituents through a variety of chemical processes.

A method to isolate eurycomanone on an industrial scale, as it is possible for yohimbine or caffeine, doesn't currently exist. So it needs filtering, centrifuging, dissolving, and chemical reagents. Therefore, pure eurycomanone is really expensive.

It can be bought from chemical supply houses of the kind of Sigma Aldrich. Here a Chinese source:

https://www.mybiosource.com/prods/Biochemical/Eurycomanone/datasheet.php?products_id=6094178

eurycomanone for sale

This is reagent grade. Not pharmaceutical grade, and not even food grade. Ethics guidelines in many countries would not even allow the substance for tests on life animals.

Chemical supply houses don't sell to just anybody. You have to send credentials, such as proof that you are a researcher at a university.

Anyway, if it were available, pure pharmaceutical grade eurycomanone would have to be added in an ever variable proportion to any tongkat ali extract to make it standardized. That would be a huge effort, at astronomic costs.

Just consider this.

A high potency extract has maybe 2 percent eurycomanone. For a 300 mg capsule, this would be approximately 6 mg.

If a product were 300 mg per capsule, and 8 percent eurycomanone, than at least 18 mg of pure eurycomanone would have to be added, at a cost of 18 x 1520 US dollar = 27,360 US dollar per capsule. Times 100 capsules = 2,736,000 US dollars, just for the standardization of 1 bottle.

And then the scammers offer it at 69 dollars per bottle, buy 2, get 1 free.

Ridiculous. Every website claiming "standardized" tongkat ali extract is a scam.

And why should those scammers bother even with just genuine tongkat ali when, as a matter of fact, they can ship sawdust, or all-purpose flour, and still print "standardized tongkat ali" on labels, or include the claim on a web page. Nobody will or can check. Scammers are interested only in your money. Scammers are not interested in your health

Tongkatali.org - Engineering happiness


By Serge Kreutz


I have a great interest in the modulation of the human mind and body, with the aim of achieving a higher level of happiness. It’s about engineering happiness through pharmacological means.

We are aware of street drugs used to this end, but they are all inadequate. Cocaine and amphetamines produce happiness through the crude enhancement of dopaminergic brain activity, but they do a lot of long-term damage to the functions they momentarily enhance.

Opiates make happy through sedation, but their effects wear off, and inactivity and dullness accompany the happiness they induce.

Ecstasy surely creates a beautiful sense of harmony, but here, too, the effects wear off, and a desired state of happiness becomes harder to achieve when sober after having relied on ecstasy.

Humans are inadequately predisposed to be happy, simply because a good dose of unhappiness is superior in the Darwinian fight for survival. Natural selection of the fittest sides with those who try harder, and in order to be highly success-oriented, one has to be discontent with one’s status quo.

Until genetic engineering will take care of the current shortcomings of humans in their quest to be universally happy, pharmacological intervention is the only realistic alternative. But, to emphasize it again, the pharmacology of cocaine, opiates, ecstasy, amphetamines and the like is too crude to be a sensible solution.

All humans are equipped by nature with a delicate system to experience happiness: sexuality. Pharmacological mediators of happiness should act to enhance relationships experience. This is the great potential of tongkat ali. By tilting the hormonal balance towards testosterone, tongkat ali creates windows for the best relationships ever, regardless of age. Due to the workings of the hormonal system, the effect of tongkat ali may not be as predictable as that of sildenafil citrate. But tongkat ali can account for the most memorable relationships episodes in a lifetime.

Desexualizing pharmacological agents, such as some antidepressants, do not point into the right direction.



Tongkatali.org's Growth hormone


By Serge Kreutz


I have tried almost every medication that has been reported to have relationships side effects. When I achieved no clear relationships effect from testosterone, I even tried female birth control pills. Not recommended.

Information on growth hormone on the Internet typically is of two categories:

1. enthusiastic reports on the use of growth hormone for practically every medical condition on sites that also sell growth hormone

2. critical reports, usually by people who have never tried it.

I have injected about 300 IUs of growth hormone over several months. I know one thing: you can forget it for relationships enhancement.



Tongkatali.org's What are Serge Kreutz restaurants?


By Serge Kreutz


No, they are not owned by me, Serge Kreutz.

But they follow a basic concept, propagated by me. That is: Not every food that is fit for taste is fit for digestion.

And that means: you put it into your mouth but don’t pass it via your esophagus, stomach, and intestine.

There are so many delicious foods and drinks that are just not appropriate for digestion.

Alcoholic drinks, for one category. Cognac tastes just great, many liquors do. Alcohol is a great substance to capture tastes and convey them to our taste buds.

But once swallowed, the effects are all negative: intoxication, a burden to the liver, damage to the brain.

For tea, it’s a similar story. OK, I can do with some theobromine in my bloodstream. That would be equivalent to one or two cups a day.

But I love the taste of tea. When I eat Asian dishes, or sweets, I like to rinse my mouth with strong tea after every spoon.

And then? Swallow the tea?

That would be simply stupid. I rinse my mouth with tea, then discard the tea.

Not via the esophagus. I spit it out.

Haha, I can feast on a 5000 calorie meal, not yet counting the wine and cognac, and what reaches my stomach is just 500 calories: some rice, a fried egg, a few olives and nuts, a bit of fruit, plain water.

I can not do this in a normal restaurant. It does not look appetizing to other guest when I sit there and empty most bites into a container instead of swallowing it.

So, Serge Kreutz restaurants have to be different. They have to be designed with water streams on table height where guest can get empty their bites without having to swallow them, and all of this in an aesthetic setting.

Yes, it’s an architectural challenge, but based on a concept “swallow” restaurants can’t compete with.



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.

Better than high-tech


By Serge Kreutz

Many gadgets for a comfortable life are developed not because there would be a genuine need for them but because businesses, and economies, need something they can sell.

Yes, some high-tech gadgets are justified. Some way or another, they improve our lives. But most is junk. At best they make us lazy. A worse aspect is that they make us unfit and stupid. And at worse they make us unfree.

I want to live away from civilization, for the freedom that comes with it. But I am aware of the fact that without technologies, this will not be feasible. And not only will I need technologies, I will also have to master them. Away from civilization, I cannot call a repairman for the heating or an aircon, and not even an electrician may be at hand. But I still will want electricity. And I better have a good practical understanding of electricity.

The same applies to food preparation and my own health care.

I have to maintain my shelter and I better understand dangers.

Living away from civilisation is not for “uncivilized” people if we define “uncivilized” as uneducated, backward, or stupid.

Stupid people better move to cities where they can become ever more stupid because life is not a challenge. Even thinking is taken out of their hands, or out of their brains if you so wish, and taken over by TV, advertising, and social media where group pressure and trends substitute an individuals own opinions.

I am not stupid. I have learned many technologies, and I can learn a few more. But learning technologies takes time (of which I do not have enough), and if the technologies are not necessary for my freedom, I do not want to spend time learning them. Because I long for freedom.

Wigwam homes are freedom housing. not only because all shelter we build can easily be moved from one location to another, but also because everything is designed so it can easily be maintained by oneself. Some solutions may seem low-tech, but because they are pro-freedom, they are better than high-tech.
