Black Ginger aka Kaempferia Parviflora, is a medicinal root from Thailand (known as Krachai Dum in Thai), which is traditionally used in Thailand as a male tonic herb*, energy enhancer* and longevity agent*.

It is famous among Muay Thai fighters as Thai Ginseng, since they believe it increases endurance*, vigor* and muscle strength*. It remains one of the most popular herbal remedies in Thailand.

In conjunction with the “one village one product” campaign raised by the Thai government, Black Ginger has been promoted as a healthcare food in the country to increase public awareness and protect the plant.

​​Clinical studies have suggested that Black Ginger may be beneficial for improving energy production*, body composition* and blood flow*. You can view links to these clinical studies in the “References” tab above.

The Future of Nitric Oxide Supplementation

Black Ginger Supplement may be so much more than a simple nitric oxide booster.

The clinical studies we outlined above have suggested it may improve overall energy production which would be beneficial to muscle endurance and physical performance*. As well as may increase hand grip strength*.

Research also showed that Black Ginger Supplementactivates AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase) as well as activates BAT (brown adipose tissues) which is the ‘good' type of fat mass which is thermogenic, abundant in mitochondria (the powerhouses of the cells) and beneficial for energy expenditure*.

This may suggest positive effects in terms of improving body composition* which clinical studies such as this one has also suggested.

Physical Performance*

Hang Grip Strength*

A Natural Source of PDE5 Inhibitors

Clinical studies have shown that Black Ginger extract contains natural PDE5 inhibitors which inhibits the enzyme that breaks down nitric oxide (NO)*.

PDE5 inhibition may increase the availability of nitric oxide and prolong vasodilation*.

The most common PDE5 inhibitors on the market inhibit this enzyme very strongly and may come with plenty of side effects such as back pain, vision disturbances, dizziness, flushing, dyspepsia, nasal congestion and rhinitis*.

Black Ginger Supplement, inhibit this enzyme to a milder degree with no known side effects*.

PDE5 inhibition may increase the availability of nitric oxide and prolong vasodilation*.



Research suggest Black Ginger extract ​may work in two ways; by potentially improving vasodilation and blood circulation (PDE5 inhibition)*, as well as by boosting the levels of feel-good neurotransmitters and their sensitivity*.

Neurotransmitters play an important role in the body.

Clinical studies have suggested that Black Ginger Supplement may work as an mild anti-depressant* because the way it potentially modulates the amounts of neurotransmitters by stimulating dopaminergic function in the hypothalamus*.

Keep in mind that the effects of Black Ginger extract are ​NOT comparable in strength to other common PDE5 inhibitors on the market although they may work in similar ways.




Black Ginger extract has no known side effects and does not affect blood pressure negatively if already low, as well as does not affect hormone levels.

Our Black Ginger supplement is sourced directly from farmers in Northern Thailand. We process and lab test (see results at top of this page, tab "Lab Results") the root powder ourselves to make sure we have a clean, safe and effective end product for you as a consumer.

Recommended dosage: 1 gram twice a day (gram spoon included). Our product is formulated to last 30 days per bag taking this dosage. You can also get an even further boost by occasionally consuming an additional dose of Black Ginger extract.

This is the upper end of recommended dosage ranges to make sure you benefit maximum effects from the product. The powder is bitter in flavor so we recommend you mix it in a drink such as coffee or hot chocolate.

Traditionally in Thailand, it is recommended to combine Black Ginger (Kaempferia parviflora) with Butea Superba (another natural herb) as they make an excellent combo for men's health.

Black Ginger Supplement has been tested for toxicity (LD50) as well as mutagenicity (Ames Test). LD50 is set to be higher than 2000mg/kg (no abnormal changes was seen in a mouse model at this dosage) and was shown to be non-mutagenic. So if centuries of traditional use was not be enough to suggest Black Gingers benefits and safety, the above mentioned study does.

Keep in mind that Black Ginger supplement has to be consumed daily for 2-3 months for best effects to build up. Although many people will notice some effects within the first 1-2 weeks.

Do not combine Black Ginger supplement with prescription drugs without consulting your doctor first.
