Increasing Sex Drive
Butea Superba has a long history of use in traditional medicine for enhancing sex desires. A study was focused to check the hair regrowth of men by the consumption and Butea Superba and he also reported improved sex desire after its consumption. Lab tests have also revealed the abnormal higher levels of male sex hormones (dihydrotestosterone). Lesser androgen levels cause erectile dysfunction and less sex drive in men.

Another study was focused to compare the effects of Viagra and Butea Superba. The first round of research has shown that herbal formulation was more effective than the Viagra drug. The results of the second round were not similar to the first-round results and later on, it was revealed that the herb in the first study was blended with the other herb that caused inhibition of phosphodiesterase-5 and its mechanism is the same as those of erectile dysfunction medicines, and drugs.
The right dosage for treatment of various medical conditions is dependent on various factors such as the age of the patient, level of health problem, and prevailing climatic conditions. There is no proper human-based testing scientific recommendation about its dosage and all the medicinal plants are not always safe for regular consumption. Some animal-based research has shown that a daily dose of 200 mg for a 50 kg person is safe and does not cause any problems. Its optimal use at low dosage is always safe but higher doses may cause mutations. Therefore, it is important to follow instructions provided by a physician.
