I will also point you towards a top quality Tongkat Ali product that comes with the peace of mind of a full year long guarantee!
Let’s get with the main subject and topic of this article and answer the question as best as I can!
What Is Tongkat Ali?
Tongkat Ali is a herb that is very well known for increasing testosterone levels and is found in many different bodybuilding supplements. It is also used for the restoration of sexual prowess in both men and women!, so be warned it can have that effect of making you as horny as hell!
Besides, being a powerful testosterone booster and a rather effective sex drive booster as well as a remedy for erectile dysfunction it is actually a very handy and strong anti-viral useful for the treatment of malaria and dysentery to name a few, as well as being a rather effective treatment for common colds and flu’s. This is thanks to the high content of quassinoids, of which Tongkat Ali has 2x as much as the common aspirin.
This humble herb due to its number of different uses is actually classified as an adaptogenic herb – meaning it is adaptable and can treat a number of different conditions such as those mentioned above. Due to its adaptogenic effects some people refer to it as Malaysian Ginseng, however, this classification is not correct as it comes from an entirely different botanical family as Ginseng.
Predominantly speaking this herb, which is actually a tree, is grown deep in the rain forests and jungles of South East Asia where it’s name changes and translates according to the various countries in which it is grown. It Indonesia it is known as Pasak Bumi, Plaplai Phueak in Thailand and Cay Ba Benh in Vietnam.
It is in the English speaking nation and the former British colony of Malaysia where the vast majority is grown that it is Known as Tongkat Ali, which translates from the Malay language to “Ali’s Walking Stick”.
In English, and most western nations Tongkat Ali is known as long jack.
The botanical name is Eurycoma longifolia, perhaps where the long jack name is adapted from. Typically it is the trees root that is used to make the herb. A tree is normally grown and cultivated for at least 10 years before it is used to make the powerful testosterone enhancing herb.
How Does Tongkat Ali Increase Testosterone?
In my humble opinion, it is important but not essential to understand how a particular herb works in your body in order to determine if it can do the job that we want it to do and how effective can it be at performing that particular function. In our case, that is of increasing testosterone levels.
It is very interesting to me, and very useful for us all to know that this herb actually works in harmony and in balance with our bodies meaning it is very safe to use as a testosterone booster.
It works by stimulating a group of cells that are located in our anterior pituitary gland that are known as gonadotropic cells, remember that name – “gonad-o-tropic” which tells you it has something to do with the gonads. When these are stimulated they release gonadotropins like follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone , which sets off a lovely testosterone producing chain reaction in a particular group of cells located….you got it… in the gonads called Leydig cells and this stimulates the production of testosterone.
In addition to working with your body to stimulate the production of extra free non binding testosterone, it works very well to maintain those gains by blocking and inhibiting its metamorphosis into estrogen by means of the aromatization process. This is a very nice win-win situation for boosting testosterone.
Furthermore, Tongkat Ali helps in lipogenesis, which is fat burning, the burning of body fat via thermogenesis. With excess body fat being a cause of low testosterone and augmented levels of estrogen, which can bind to free testosterone and render it inert and thus lower testosterone levels. – a further win, another plus point in the herbs ability to augment T-levels making it a win win win for enhancing testosterone!
For our beautiful lady friends and readers, the augmented sex drive effect work just as well for you as it does your husband, in fact, it can help him if his “pocket rocket” is not as firm as it once was. It can also help you around that time of the month if you are having a particularly difficult time as Tongkat Ali also helps to regulate hormones, helping to rebalance them when they are “all haywire and out of sync” and due to the luteinizing hormone stimulating the ovaries it helps your ovaries to release the egg.
Another interesting and useful use for ladies, particularly older ladies is that it can help with symptoms of the menopause.
