Butea superba directly increases testosterone levels. But because levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine are partially regulated by testosterone, butea superba also increases levels of dopamine in the brain.
Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of motivation, including sexual motivation.
To put it mildly, everything in the human body is interconnected. Augmenting testosterone levels, as it is easily achieved with butea superba, is a good entry point for numerous beneficial physiological and psychological effects.
Dopamine levels are positively correlated to testosterone levels. Dopamine is not just the neurotransmitter for everything that excites us, including sex. It even affects such purely physiological functions as the control, and elegance, of body movement (ballet dancers take note).
A pathological lack of dopamine in the brain causes neurological problems, such as Parkinson’s Disease, which manifests itself as a movement disorder. Both uncontrolled shaking and rigidity are symptoms of Parkinson’s, also referred to as shaking palsy.
Parkinson’s typically is a disease of the elderly. And it is much more prevalent in men than women.
The etiology of Parkinson’s, and failing brain health in general, show a striking parallelism to the decline of testosterone as people age. And just like Parkinson’s, a general decline in testosterone also affects men more than it does women.
Because organ systems don’t function in isolation, a holistic approach to health is appropriate.
So, if we up-regulate testosterone to youthful levels, multiple benefits are derived. Higher dopamine in the brain is just one of them. Increasing dopamine by up-regulating testosterone results in a path that well illustrates how everything in human lives, and human health, is interrelated.
High dopamine caused by high testosterone results in high libido. High libido is a prerequisite for healthy sexual conduct, and frequent powerful orgasms.
Frequent powerful orgasms give our lives sense. They also have a relaxing effect on the mind. People with sexually satisfied lives seem to be natural authorities, natural leaders.
A healthy sex life, characterized by youthful testosterone, also reinforces a person’s immune system. And a strong immune system fends off practically any illness, from the common cold to any kind of cancer.
And while the dopamine-Parkinson’s link of high testosterone is well established, it has also been shown that a disturbed testosterone balance even has a role in Alzheimer’s.
