Dodder Seed extracts as male sexual enhancement material.:
In line with its traditional use to purge black bile, dodder is still considered a valuable, though rarely used, herb for problems affecting the liver and gallbladder. Dodder is thought to support liver function and is taken for jaundice. Dodder has a mildly laxative effect and is also taken for urinary problems.
With male sexual enhancement products reaching new heights of popularity in the marketplace, developers need to be on the lookout for new and promising ingredients for these products. One such effective herbal male sex tonic that is more well known in the east than the west is Dodder seed.
Dodder seed comes from the viny parasitic climber Cuscuta chinensis that grows in China. A member of the family convolvulaceae, Dodder is an annual that produces a small brown seed with powerful effects on the male constitution.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dodder seed is known as a kidney yang tonic and is widely used to remedy sexual problems like impotence, nocturnal emission, premature ejaculation, and low sperm count that arise from kidney yang deficiency. In general, it nourishes the kidney organ in the body, boosting energy levels. As such it is also helpful for others symptoms of kidney deficiency like low back pain, tinnitus, diarrhea, dizziness, and blurred vision. It also has a long history of use as a longevity herb.
Although effective on its own, Dodder seed is often grouped with other herbs in male sexual enhancement formulas. It works particularly well when paired with sexual tonic Yin Yang Huo (Horny Goat Weed, Epimedium sagittatum; See related Extrax Fax articles #1 , #2 and #3) because of their complementary effects. Dodder Seed enhances the activity of Epimedium. Both are kidney yang tonics, both have documented effects on testosterone metabolism, but Epimedium is more warming while Cuscuta has a neutral character. In combination, the sexual enhancement effect of these herbs on the body is augmented but more balanced.
While there is certainly a wealth of empirical evidence in the form of traditional use in China to support the effectiveness of Dodder seed, scientific studies lend further substantiation to the herb. Pharmacological studies show a cardiotonic effect in toads and a hypotensive effect in dogs.
In male rats, the herb increased blood levels of testosterone and luteinizing hormone, and enhanced the growth of testes, epididymis, and the pituitary gland. Combinations of Epimedium and Dodder seed together were shown in animal studies to increase testosterone secretion and cyclic AMP production; to stimulate the growth of the testes, epididymis, and seminal vesicle; increase cerebral blood flow; and act as a vasodilator.
Human clinical trials also showed positive results. In one study, 50 patients with impotence were treated with a combination of Epimedium and Cuscuta for 50 days. 76% (38 patients) experienced total recovery and 16% (8 patients) were improved for a total effectiveness rate of 92%. A 2 year follow up interview was done on 20 patients from the total recovery group with no recurrance of impotence.
Dodder seed is an effective male tonic that is interesting and novel for many western formulators. Now is a great time to try this product and consider its addition to your male enhancement products.
