We offer one of highest quality Malaysian Tongkat Ali supplements currently on the market.
Tongkat Ali also known as Eurycoma longifolia and Longjack in north America, is an evergreen small tree that is known to produce a wide range of positive effects, especially to men. The herb typically grows in countries within South-East Asia such as Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia. It is mainly due to the presence of eurycomanone in Tongkat Ali (phytoactive ingredient) that makes it a marker for identification and quality.
On average high-quality mature roots will have a eurycomanone range between 0.3% to 1.5%. The extraction process will standardize the content between 1% to 3% for capsules, up to 10% for tablets and around 0.1% to 0.3% for powders, powders are mainly used in Asia as an additive for energy drinks (i.e., Tongkat coffee).
Cheap Tongkat Ali supplements, usually sold as capsules use the lower eurycomanone powders. You would have to consume 10 to 30 times the quality of a cheap Tongkat Ali supplement to match the eurycomanone dosage you get from our supplement.
For capsules, 1% to 3% is the sweet spot for a Tongkat Ali Extract, over 3% and the extract becomes unstable, high eurycomanone content extracts are sensitive to light, heat and moisture and tend to have a high viscosity which leads to a poor flow rate when encapsulating.
Ultrasonic hot water extraction (patented) offers many benefits over ethanol/methanol extraction the key benefit being stability and less sensitivity. Most common question we get asked, what is the difference between our Indonesian and Malaysian Tongkat Ali extract? And the answer is, the most important difference between the two is the extraction method, “Alcohol vs Water”.
Simple test, place one Indonesian and one Malaysian capsule on a tabletop next to each other for a day. The moisture in the air, UV and heat will affect the Indonesian extract far more than the Malaysian. The Indonesian extract will shrink in size and begin turning to a resin whereas the Malaysian powder will become hard, but shrinkage is far less.
It is important you follow the storage instructions on the back of the supplement packaging, the simple acts of sealing the pouch after each use, expelling additional air out the pouch, and storing in a cool dark cupboard will ensure the longevity of your supplements.
The effects of Tongkat Ali have been tested on both humans and animals with over 300 clinical trials, studies, and clinical trials. Tongkat Ali has proven to boost testosterone levels, by up to 46% with individuals suffering from low testosterone.
Testosterone is the male hormone that plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues. It is necessary for muscle, bone and hair growth and is a key factor in the sex drive of males. It also prevents osteoporosis which is a condition where bones become brittle and weak.
Testosterone levels fall drastically as men age. Men can experience a gradual decline in total testosterone levels at a rate of 1-2% annually beginning in their thirties. At the age of 60, testosterone levels are typically 40-50% of youthful levels.
As a man in his late 40's, with a receding hariline and a softness around the middle that does seem to want to go away-I can relate (deep sigh!)
But there is good news… exercise, quality sleep and balanced diet can drastically improve testosterone levels and before purchasing testosterone boosting supplements make the efforts to improve your lifestyle and then consider adding supplements like Tongkat Ali, Fadogia Agrestis, Ashwagandha, etc.
Multiple human clinical studies over the last 20 years have shown the following benefits:
If you are into bodybuilding or getting in shape, Tongkat Ali takes time to work – approximately 48 hours before you can experience a noticeable improvement, and ideally four weeks to notice moderate-to-significant gains in muscle development. Tongkat Ali works well with the right exercises such as resistance training.
For adults, the effect of Tongkat Ali is faster than when you are in your 30’s. If you are into competitive sports, you can feel an instant improvement in strength and stamina.
