Tongkat Ali for big balls. Does it really work?
Tongkat Ali is a potent herbal extract sourced from the roots of the Tongkat plant.
It’s been used for centuries in Malaysia as a libido, sexual desire and performance enhancer. It also has a growing reputation for being nature’s own Viagra.
Tongkat Ali translates to English as “Tongkat’s Walking Stick.” If you listen carefully, you can still hear the traditional doctors chuckling when they came up with that one!
So, what exactly does it do to your “walking stick?”
Testosterone, Tongkat Ali & Big Balls
Keeping your testosterone levels high is one of the most important things you can do for your health, vitality and sexual appetite.
After all, Testosterone is the “alpha male” hormone. High levels of testosterone and perceived sexual attractiveness go hand in hand.
On the contrary, low levels of testosterone are synonymous with distinctly unattractive characteristics like low libido, increased fat mass, fatigue, and erectile dysfunction.
Stress and age cause testosterone levels to naturally start dropping every single year.
But don’t despair! It’s possible to dramatically increase your testosterone levels no matter what age you are or how low your levels currently are.
Does Increasing Testosterone Make Balls Bigger?
Yes it can – and there’s science to back it up. (source)
Tongkat Ali can certainly give you a boost in this department.
Some of the remarkable effects of this herb include an improvement in libido, sexual function, bone density, muscle mass, body composition, mood, cognition, and overall quality of life. (source)
How does Tongkat Ali help achieve this?
It has been shown to substantially increase testosterone levels.
In one study, 76 patients showing signs of reduced testicle function took Tongkat Ali extract for one month. There were some incredible results:
“While before treatment only 35.5% had normal testosterone levels, after the completed treatment 90.8% of the patients showed normal values.”
This was in men that already had below average levels of testosterone in their bloodstream. (source)
Without drugs, special diets or specific exercise, almost all of them managed to return to normal levels. And this was after only one month!
Tongkat Ali And Sperm
Big balls are an indication of healthy sperm.
The problem is, our balls aren’t as big or healthy as they used to be! Sperm levels in men are decreasing at an alarming rate.
Recent studies have shown that “sperm counts in healthy men appeared to have dropped by more than half in 50 years.” (source)
Grandpa was probably packing twice as many healthy swimmers as you.
The problem is that men are being exposed to far more sources of estrogen than they were a couple of generations ago. Estrogenic compounds are now all over the place in our environment, our diets, personal care products, and pharmaceutical drugs.
In a man, it’s critical to maintain low levels of estrogen in order to stay sexually healthy.
More estrogen = smaller testicles, lower sperm count, less motility and lower semen volume.
How can Tongkat Ali give my sperm a boost?
To keep your sperm levels healthy and your testicles large, you need to keep your estrogen levels in check. Tongkat Ali can help you do that.
An in vitro study showed Tongkat Ali to be as successful, or in some cases even more successful, at lowering estrogen levels when compared to Tamoxifen (a potent pharmaceutical anti-estrogenic drug). (source)
Another study of men between the ages of 30 and 55 years old also confirmed the sperm-boosting effects of Tongkat Ali.
The subjects were given Tongkat Ali extract daily – and the results were astonishing.
At the end of the 12 weeks, the average effect was a 44.4% increase in sperm motility and 18.2% increase in semen volume. (source)
Not bad for some powdered tree root!
Tongkat Ali Side Effects
Studies show that ”thus far, at therapeutic concentrations, no significant side effects of the treatment were obvious“.
The only side effect that most people will notice is a surprising decrease in their stress levels and a powerful sex drive.
Doesn’t sound bad, does it? An increase in testosterone coupled with a decrease in estrogen is highly restorative for men.
Restorative how, exactly?
Most of us are all too aware of what happens during a woman’s menstrual cycle when her hormone levels go outside of the normal range.
STRESS! Moodiness! Irritability!
The exact same thing happens to men when their hormones are out of wack.
Rebalancing your hormones by boosting testosterone and reducing estrogen can restore you to your ideal natural state: a calm, confident, sexually driven alpha male.
The Bonus? Women find men with increased testosterone levels instinctively more attractive.
One study on the effects of supplementing with Tongkat Ali found significant improvements in the Tongkat Ali group for Tension (-11%), Anger (-12%), and Confusion (-15%). (source)
This study also found that stress hormone profile was significantly improved by Tongkat Ali supplementation. Subjects supplementing with Tongkat Ali showed reduced cortisol exposure (-16%) and increased testosterone status (+37%).
Best Time to Take Tongkat Ali
As you are likely to experience an increase in energy and motivation each time you take Tongkat Ali, timing is crucial.
It’s usually not ideal to feel suddenly awake and ready to take on the world at 11pm!
For this reason, it is best taken in the morning before starting your day. That way you’ll be primed and ready to go out and take on the world.
Tongkat Ali Dosage For Bigger Balls
A lot of the supplements on the market are simply ground up Tongkat root.
There’s nothing wrong with that, except that you’ll need to take HUGE amounts to get the desired effect.
Not exactly convenient…
That’s why I recommend a carefully curated 100:1 pure extract that is 100 times more potent. As with most supplements, it’s not a good idea to overdo it as this can cause tolerance.
I recommend using 100mg of concentrated Tongkat Ali extract not more than once a week – and preferably when you know you’ll be having sex!
Tongkat Ali for Big Balls: Conclusion
Tongkat Ali can go a long way to protecting you against the effects of stress, environmental and age-induced decline in your sexual function.
As a safe, affordable and natural supplement, it is an essential weapon in the quest to achieve peak sexual performance.
Update – Does Tongkat Ali Really Increase Sex Drive?
I’ve already covered much of the scientific research out there on Tongkat Ali and its testosterone-boosting effects.
In short, Tongkat Ali has been shown to work quite well as a supplement for raising male testosterone levels. This is especially true for men with reduced testicle function and chronic low T.
Tongkat Ali has also been shown to reduce cortisol levels in men with moderate to high stress levels. That’s crucial because cortisol is a stress hormone (produced when you’re stressed) that can seriously lower testosterone levels.
But remember in the beginning of the article when I said that Tongkat Ali has been traditionally used as a libido-enhancer in Malaysia?
There’s actually science to back that up too.
There have been several studies done on rats to determine the libido-enhancing effects of Tongkat Ali.
Why rats and not humans? Well first off, rats are about 90% similar to humans when it comes to our genes.
On top of that, the primary bodily systems in rats also work very much like those in humans.
So rats are a scientifically accepted stand-in for humans in terms of research. With that said, let’s look at the data.
In one study, the researchers used two groups of rats – one treated with Tongkat Ali, the other a control group.
The rats were placed in an electric grid. At one end the team placed what I can only assume was a highly attractive female rat.
The key here was that to get to the female and mate, the rats had to cross the electric grid and receive a light shock. None of the rats in the control group were willing to take the shock, but the rats in the test group did at a significant rate.
Two other very similar rat studies have found almost the exact same results. (source)
So be warned if you choose to use Tongkat Ali – your sex drive will likely be off the charts and you’ll probably grow huge testicles to boot.
