If you’re from the West, chances are you’ve never encountered Black Ginger before. If, however, you’re from the East, and in particular Thailand, the legendary reputation of this herb precedes itself.
This is NOT your everyday kitchen ginger...
This is the Fighter's Friend.
But what makes it so powerful for Muay Thai, MMA, and other fighters?
Also known as Kaempferia Parviflora (Krachai Dum in Thai), Black Ginger is traditionally used in Thailand as a male tonic herb. Especially touted for its effects on improving blood flow in men*.
Nicknamed locally in Thailand as "Fighter's Friend", Black Ginger is widely used among many elite Muay Thai fighters for its effects on circulation, and hence the rejuvenation of tissues.
Studies have revealed that Black Ginger is a natural phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor (2).
PDE5 inhibitors block the action of PDE5 on cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), a chemical messenger that relaxes the blood vessels and smooth muscle in the body. (3)
Together with nitric oxide (NO), cGMP promotes vasodilation, meaning the relaxing of the blood vessels, which is extremely beneficial for overall blood circulation in men.*
Better blood supply to the muscles automatically means improved function, performance, and recovery—and that's exactly why it's so popular with Muay Thai fighters!
Numerous studies have already confirmed Black Ginger’s positive effects on circulation and physical fitness without any recorded side effects. Over 1000 years of use in Thailand can also attest to that.
If you’re trying to boost your blood flow naturally then Black Ginger may be your best shot.
And if you're working to reach new heights as a fighter, Black Ginger is definitely your best friend: (1)
► Increase grip strength
► Enhance endurance
► Speed up recovery after exercise
Traditionally Black Ginger is often combined with another natural Thai herb called Butea Superba to fight aging in men. Butea Superba is a herbal prohormone and powerful natural source of phyto-androgens that may help get your male hormones back into gear*.
