More widely known as butea superba, the plant is of the vine family and grows primarily in Asia in countries such as Vietnam, India, China and Thailand. The plant is known by a variety of names throughout the world such as butea gum tree, kwao krua dang, red kwao krua and red kwao krua daeng. Also known as ‘flame of the forest’, the tree itself is a medium sized one that features compound leaves that fall during the winter and bloom between February and March. The parts used for medicinal properties include the gum extract, the seeds and the leaves. 

 
The gum of the butea tree is rich in gallic and tannic acids. Gallic acid is considered to be one of the more effective forms of antioxidants that keep the body free of any free radicals that are known to play a significant role in the development of a number of medical conditions. Despite the fact that butea superba is rich in gallic acid – which is very beneficial for a number of serious medical ailments, perhaps its most well-known use is the fact that it is very effective in boosting an individual’s sexual performance as well as helping cure certain issues like erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. This is primarily because of the fact that there is some evidence to suggest that the chemicals that are present in butea superba are known to act similarly to the hormones that help in the regulation of sexual performance and function.
