A member of the ginger family, Krachai Dam (also known as black galangal or ‘Thai Viagra’) is found mainly in the north and north-east of Thailand, where it has been used for centuries to enhance sexual potency (i.e. to increase libido, and promote and maintain erectile function). Krachai dam is traditionally popular with muay thai fighters because it increases strength and power, boosts energy and vitality, improves endurance and stamina, and reduces fatigue. Its ability to reduce fatigue has informed another common use with long distance driving (especially at night).
Further, in the traditional medicine system of Thailand, krachai dam has been used to aid in the prevention of strokes, to treat irregular heartbeat and heart palpitations, to reduce cholesterol and manage high blood pressure, to reduce blood sugar, and to improve blood circulation (including to ‘cold’ hands and feet). Krachai dam has also been employed against digestive disorders and gastric ulcers, and hemorrhoids. It is also known to be a rapid and potent remedy for the common cold. Krachai dam has anti-depressive, anti-inflammatory, anti-malarial, anti-mutagenic, anti-allergic, anti-plasmodial, anti-fungal, and mild anti-mycobacterial properties. When taken by women, krachai dam helps to balance hormones, regulate menstruation, enrich the blood, and freshen the skin.
