A potent herbal extract, this super supplement is sourced from the roots of the Tongkat tree. Used for centuries in Malaysia as a libido, sexual desire and performance enhancer, it 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 And Tongkat Ali
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.(7) Low levels of Testosterone, on the contrary, are synonymous with distinctly unattractive characteristics: “low libido, increased fat mass, fatigue, erectile dysfunction”(1)… Ugh. Stress and age causes Testosterone levels to naturally start dropping every single year. (2) But don’t despair! Did you know that it’s possible to dramatically increase your Testosterone levels – no matter what age you are or how low your levels currently are?
What does increasing Testosterone do for you?
Some of the remarkable effects are: “improvement in libido and sexual function, bone density, muscle mass, body composition, mood, cognition, quality of life and cardiovascular disease.” (3) Sounds good, doesn’t it?
How does Tongkat Ali help achieve this?
It has been shown to substantially increase Testosterone levels. In one study, 75 patients showing signs of reduced function in their testicles took Tongkat Ali extract for one month had some incredible results: “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. Without drugs, special diets or specific exercise almost all of them managed to return to normal levels. And this was only one month! The long-term effectiveness of supplementing Tongkat Ali are so profound that it is now being considered a viable alternative to chemical testosterone replacement therapy (1)
Tongkat Ali And Sperm
Big, natural 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”(4) That’s right… Grandpa was probably packing twice as many healthy swimmers as you.
What am I doing differently from Grandpa?!
Low levels of Estrogen are necessary for men to keep their joints and brains healthy (5) The problem is that men are being exposed to far more sources of Estrogen in their environment, their diets and through pharmaceutical drugs than they were a couple of generations ago (4). 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 full and large, you need to keep your Estrogen levels in check. An in vitro study showed Tongkat Ali to be as successful, or in some cases even more successful, as Tamoxifen (a potent Pharmaceutical anti-estrogenic drug) at lowering Estrogen levels. But that isn’t all! Another study took men between the ages of 30 and 55 years old and gave them Tongkat Ali extract daily. The results were astonishing. At the end of the 12 weeks, the average effect was an increase in: “sperm motility of 44.4%, and semen volume of 18.2%.” 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” (1) The only side effect that most people will notice is a surprising decrease in their stress levels and a renewed and 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 whack. Rebalancing your hormones by boosting your Testosterone and reducing your 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 (7). 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%). Stress hormone profile (salivary cortisol and testosterone) was significantly improved by Tongkat Ali supplementation, with reduced cortisol exposure (-16%) and increased testosterone status (+37%).”(6) What will you do with your new-found energy, increased sex drive, and motivation?
Best time to take Tongkat Ali
As you are likely to experience an increase in your energy and motivation each time you take it, timing is crucial. It’s not usually ideal to feel suddenly awake and ready to take on the world at 11 pm! 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 is a good idea not to overdo it as this can cause tolerance. We recommend using 100mg of concentrated Tongkat Ali extract not more than once a week. Preferably when you know you’ll be having sex! Giving you a potent boost, just when you need it most!
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 war against mediocrity and the quest to achieve peak sexual performance.
