The traditional use of Tongkat Ali—combined with validated insights provided through contemporary scientific research—offers ample credence for Tongkat Ali's moniker, "The Original Indonesian Aphrodisiac."

Tongkat Ali is an Adaptogenic and Tonic herb in its own right, with therapeutic potential overshadowed only by its promise as a Pro-Androgenic herb.

As a Pro-Androgenic herb, research has shown that Tongkat Ali may increase natural (endogenous) testosterone production by stimulating the HPA and HPG axis, which can naturally raise testosterone levels. * Tongkat Ali possesses anti-aromatase properties, which could raise free testosterone levels and lower estradiol levels. *

Tahna Prana Elevated Tongkat Ali Extract is an expert formulation of our full potency, full spectrum Tongkat Ali (200:1 concentration) and highly purified, isolated Eurycomanone extract. To maximize absorption, we add Piperine, a compound extracted from Black Pepper Fruit.

This unique combination maximizes the full potential of one of our all-time favorite—and one of the most essential—Pro-Androgenic herbs.

  • Made with select, choice, wild-harvested Eurycoma longifolia Jack—the only authentic Tongkat Ali;
  • Contains the strongest broad-spectrum Tongkat Ali Extract available for full potency, purity, and quality;
  • Fortified with the highly sought-after isolated Eurycomanone (Std. to 2%), the main compound responsible for Tongkat Ali's Pro-Androgenic effects;
  • Tongkat Ali offers unparalleled support for healthy and high testosterone levels;
  • Elevated with Piperine, an extract of Black Pepper. Piperine has been shown to increase the absorption of some herbs by almost 20x (2000%) and is an exercise mimetic;
  • Domestically produced in an NSF, GMP-registered, and certified organic facility. *

Who is Tongkat Ali For

Tongkat Ali is an ideal herb for those interested in raising testosterone levels, which may have dropped due to illness, aging, or other reasons.

Tongkat Ali is a powerful Pro-Androgenic herb that promotes healthy testosterone levels. * Using Pro-Androgenic herbs to heal low testosterone is not about promoting hyper-masculinity. Instead, and in stark contrast, it is about promoting wellness, quality of life, and healthy aging.

Who isn’t Tongkat Ali For

Tongkat Ali is not for those seeking a "quick fix." Tongkat Ali's benefits as an adaptogenic and tonic herb are revealed with regular and consistent use.

Tongkat Ali does not supplement the body with testosterone; instead, it works with the body to increase its own (endogenous) testosterone production. * And that takes time.

Tongkat Ali is ideal for those searching for a natural way to promote health and wellness.

The Importance of Tahna Prana Elevated Tongkat Ali Extract

Let's look at the ingredients to learn what makes this formula special.

Tongkat Ali Extract (200:1 Concentration)

Tongkat Ali is much more than purely a Pro-Androgenic herb.

Instead of thinking of Tongkat Ali as a Pro-Androgenic herb with Adaptogenic and Tonic properties, Tongkat Ali is an Adaptogenic herb with strong Pro-Androgenic properties.

To harness the full potential of Tongkat Ali as an adaptogen and tonic herb, and thus offering the widest range of benefits, we use a full potency, full spectrum extraction of authentic, wild-harvested Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) (see the attached Certificate of Authenticity linked below).

A full-spectrum extraction ensures a full spectrum of benefits.

Isolated Eurycomanone

Authentic Tongkat Ali contains a class of therapeutic compounds called quassinoids. Tongkat Ali contains over 60 quassinoids. Researchers identify these quassinoids as offering a wide range of possible therapeutic uses, including protection against some cancers, stopping viruses, and reducing inflammation. * To be clear, while research indicates these properties, we are not suggesting that Tongkat Ali—or any herb—can, or should be, used to prevent or treat any disease, including cancer.

One of these quassinoids is Eurycomanone. Eurycomanone is the driver of the Pro-Androgenic benefits of Tongkat. *

As with all of the quassinoids in Tongkat Ali, Eurycomanone in unprocessed Tongkat Ali roots is present in levels too small and too insignificant to offer therapeutic benefit.

To combat the naturally occurring low levels of the therapeutic quassinoids found in Tongkat Ali and to offer unparalleled support, our Tahna Prana Elevated Tongkat Ali Extract Capsules combine a potent full spectrum (200:1 / 200x) Tongkat Ali extract at equal amounts with a Tongkat Ali extract standardized to 2% Eurycomanone. This unique combination maximizes Tongkat Ali's broad benefits with its specific Pro-Androgenic benefits. *

Piperine

Piperine is a compound present in Black Pepper (Piper nigrum). Here, Piperine offers two main functions as a Phyto-Therapeutic: Firstly, Piperine can increase the absorption of other herbs, including turmeric, by 2000% (see more below).

Secondly, Piperine is an exercise memetic, meaning it can mimic some of the benefits of exercise (again, more on this below).

The effective dose of Piperine is between 10 and 20 milligrams. Each serving of this formula contains 20 milligrams of Piperine—only 4.17% of the total ingredients. You receive all the benefits without compromising the total amount of Tongkat Ali.

Key Benefits Associated With Tongkat Ali

Tongkat Ali is much more than just an outstanding pro-androgenic herb. Focusing only on its pro-androgenic properties does Tongkat Ali a disservice.

Ample contemporary scientific research on Tongkat Ali illuminates the significance of the long-standing traditional uses of the herb.

As time passes, and as more research is done on Tongkat Ali, the plant continues to reveal itself with great potential outside the realm of its ethnobotanical history.

The wide-ranging benefits are why we are such promoters and proponents of using a broad, full-spectrum Tongkat Ali Extract.

Today, we find that the vast majority of attention on Tongkat Ali focuses on the following possible benefits and uses of the herb:

  • Supporting the body's own (endogenous) production of the male sex (androgenic hormones), including testosterone;
  • Promoting lean muscle mass, including physical strength and energy;
  • Aiding male reproductive health;
  • Increased levels of testosterone and the neurotransmitter dopamine, thereby increasing libido and desire;
  • controlling the hormone cortisol, thereby improving the body's stress responses (adaptogenic);
  • Promoting blood flow;
  • Promoting cognitive function;
  • In laboratory research, authentic Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia Jack) has demonstrated anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties, including beneficial actions against prostate cancer cells (again, it is vital to be extremely clear that no claim is being made that Tongkat Ali—or any product—is a preventative or cure for cancer);
  • Traditionally used in Indonesia as an aphrodisiac and tonic herb, as well as a folk medicine for several tropical diseases. *

What is Tongkat Ali?

Tongkat Ali is a traditional Phyto-Therapeutic medicine of Southeast Asia. In addition to Tongkat Ali, it is sometimes called Pasak Bumi or Longjack. Tongkat Ali is the common name for the plant botanically known as Eurycoma longifolia Jack.

Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) is native to Southeast Asia (Indochina) and Indonesia, which includes Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Borneo, and Sumatra. The bark of the roots of Eurycoma longifolia is used for its medicinal and Phyto-Therapeutic properties. *

Two other plants have been mislabeled as Tongkat Ali, commonly referred to as Black Tongkat Ali and Red Tongkat Ali.

Botanically, the authentic—or true—Tongkat Ali plant is Eurycoma longifolia Jack, which can be shortened to Eurycoma longifolia or E. longifolia. These names can be used synonymously, yet care should be taken to minimize confusion between Eurycoma longifolia and other plants mislabeled as Tongkat Ali.

To avoid confusion between authentic Tongkat Ali and these other botanically distinct plants, unless we are directly addressing this misunderstanding, we exclusively use the name Tongkat Ali to reference Eurycoma longifolia Jack.

Why make the distinction?

Distinguishing authentic Tongkat Ali—Eurycoma longifolia Jack—is critical because the historical use of Tongkat Ali as a medicinal, Phyto-Therapeutic herb and the significate amount of contemporary research validating it is exclusive to Tongkat Ali from Eurycoma longifolia.

The most common plant misidentified as Tongkat Ali is Polyalthia bullata, often distinguished from authentic Tongkat Ali by calling it Black Tongkat Ali. It is also known as Pasak Mubi.

Polyalthia bullata shares no botanical relationship with Eurycoma longifolia. While Polyalthia bullata may hold potential as a Phyto-Therapeutic herb, it should not be misidentified as Tongkat Ali from Eurycoma longifolia.

Identifying the Different Colors of Tongkat Ali

Some classify Tongkat Ali by color and understanding the origins of these classifications can help identify true Tongkat Ali.

White Tonkgat Ali & Yellow Tonkgat Ali

White Tongkat Ali and Yellow Tongkat Ali refer to the botanically correct Tongkat Ali: Eurycoma longifolia Jack.

As mentioned above, bark from the roots of Tongkat Ali is used for its medicinal properties. The bark is light in color and results in the extract being yellowish.

In Malay (the language of Malaysia) and Indonesian, authentic Tongkat Ali is called Bedara Putih and Pasak Bumi Kuning.

In these languages, Putih translates as "white," and Kuning translates as "yellow."

Black Tongkat Ali

Black Tongkat Ali refers to the plant Polyalthia bullata; however, this plant bears no botanical relationship to Eurycoma longifolia. While the plant may contain Phyto-Therapeutic benefits, it does not have the extended historical use or scientific evidence to support it, as does Tongkat Ali from Eurycoma longifolia.

In Malay and Indonesian, Black Tonkgat Ali is known as Pasak Bumi Hitam.

In these languages, Hitam translates as "black."

Red Tongkat Ali

Very little is known about Red Tongkat Ali—so little that no botanical plant name can be cited.

The closest we can get to identifying Red Tongkat Ali is Stema tuberosa; which you will find for sale on the internet.

The problem is that no such plant exists.

There is Stemona tuberosa, native to a similar region as Eurycoma longifolia and Polyalthia bullata, yet Stemona tuberosa bears no relationship to either, botanically or in use as a phyto-therapeutic.

In Chinese medicine, Stemona tuberosa is used therapeutically. Named Bai Bu (Hundred Parts), Stemona tuberosa is used for the treatment of parasites and to moisten the lungs and relieve coughing.

In Malay and Indonesian, Red Tonkgat Ali is referred to as Pasak Bumi Merah.

In these languages, Merah translates as "red."

It is possible that the plant exists but has not reached the West. More research is required into what—if anything—Red Tongkat Ali is before its safety or effectiveness of it can be assessed. We found zero entries in the scientific or research databases for "Stema Tuberosa" or "Pasak Bumi Merah."

A single entry can be found in the database of the National Institutes of Health, which is a paper discussing the use of authentic Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) as an alternative treatment to pharmaceutical testosterone replacement therapy in the treatment of osteoporosis. This paper does not include any mention of Black or Red Tongkat Ali.

Quassinoids: The Active Compounds of Tongkat Ali

Several therapeutic quassinoid compounds have been isolated and identified in Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia Jack). These quassinoids possess various positive actions (benefits) in the body. *

Research into the isolated quassinoids in Tongkat Ali highlights the broad benefits of the herb (including the possible anti-tumor, antiviral, antifeedant, antiamoebic, and anti-inflammatory properties) and highlights the pro-androgenic properties of Tongkat Ali. *

Tongkat Ali contains 65 isolated, known, and identified compounds, including:

  • Beta-carboline alkaloids;
  • Eurycomalactone;
  • Eurycomanone;
  • Eurycomaoside. *

Tongkat Ali, Eurycomanone, and Testosterone

Does Tongkat Ali Increase Testosterone?

One of the noteworthy quassinoids present in Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia)—and one of the most relevant—is Eurycomanone.

Comprehensive research indicates that Eurycomanone is responsible for the Pro-Androgenic properties of Tongkat Ali.

In a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, researchers write:

Eurycoma longifolia Jack (Simaroubaceae family), known locally as 'Tongkat Ali' by the ethnic population, is popularly taken as a traditional remedy to improve the male libido, sexual prowess, and fertility ... Eurycomanone, the highest concentrated quassinoid in the root extract of E. longifolia improved fertility by increasing testosterone and spermatogenesis of rats through the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis, but the mechanisms underlying the effects are not totally clear.

The researchers conclude:

Eurycomanone enhanced testosterone steroidogenesis at the Leydig cells by inhibiting aromatase conversion of testosterone to oestrogen, and at a high concentration may also involve phosphodiesterase inhibition. The quassinoid may be worthy for further development as a phytomedicine to treat testosterone-deficient idiopathic male infertility and sterility.

In short, the researchers found that the compound Eurycomanone in Tongkat Ali increased testosterone levels and sperm production. It did this by increasing the body's own production of testosterone by activating the HPA/HPG axis and by stopping the enzyme aromatase from turning testosterone into estradiol (E2).

This research indicates two separate Pro-Androgenic properties present in Tongkat Ali:

  1. Increasing testosterone production;
  2. Increasing levels of free (active) testosterone by blocking the conversion of testosterone to estradiol. *

It is hard to stress just how unique and essential these dual properties are and how unique and essential Tongkat Ali is as a Pro-Androgenic herb.

Tongkat Ali, Libido, and Dopamine—The Neurotransmitter of Desire

Does Tongkat Ali Increase Libido?

In both herbal medicine circles and academic research, Tongkat Ali's effects on promoting libido are widely understood and accepted. Because the positive effects of Tongkat Ali on male sex hormones have long been known, it was assumed that Tongkat Ali affected libido only by increasing testosterone levels. And without a doubt, there is a relationship between Tongkat Ali, sex hormone levels, and sexual desire.

But there is more to the story—Dopamine.

We often think of dopamine as the reward neurotransmitter. Dopamine makes that first bite of food taste way better than the second. Dopamine is what makes us feel good when we accomplish a goal. But think of dopamine less as the reward neurotransmitter and more as the neurotransmitter of desire. Dopamine not only rewards us for achieving a goal; it motivates us to pursue that goal. Without dopamine, we have no drive. No motivation. No desire. Libido is desire.

The science behind Tongkat Ali and dopamine is compelling, with researchers stating that:

The current data confirm the aphrodisiac and anabolic activities of E. longifolia roots aqueous extract in male Sprague-Dawley rats. This can be attributed, at least partly, to elevation of blood testosterone level as well as enhancement of brain cortical and hippocampal dopamine content.

What this means is that in addition to its influences on testosterone levels, Tongkat Ali has been shown to increase dopamine levels and that higher levels of dopamine result in increased libido.

The Importance of Tahna Prana Elevated Tongkat Ali Extract

Let's look at the ingredients to learn what makes this formula special.

Tongkat Ali Extract (200:1 Concentration)

Tongkat Ali is much more than purely a Pro-Androgenic herb.

Instead of thinking of Tongkat Ali as a Pro-Androgenic herb with Adaptogenic and Tonic properties, Tongkat Ali is an Adaptogenic herb with strong Pro-Androgenic properties.

To harness the full potential of Tongkat Ali as an adaptogen and tonic herb, and thus offering the widest range of benefits, we use a full potency, full spectrum extraction of authentic, wild-harvested Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) (see the attached Certificate of Authenticity linked below).

A full-spectrum extraction ensures a full spectrum of benefits.

Isolated Eurycomanone

Authentic Tongkat Ali contains a class of therapeutic compounds called quassinoids. Tongkat Ali contains over 60 quassinoids. Researchers identify these quassinoids as offering a wide range of possible therapeutic uses, including protection against some cancers, stopping viruses, and reducing inflammation. * To be clear, while research indicates these properties, we are not suggesting that Tongkat Ali—or any herb—can, or should be, used to prevent or treat any disease, including cancer.

One of these quassinoids is Eurycomanone. Eurycomanone is the driver of the Pro-Androgenic benefits of Tongkat. *

As with all of the quassinoids in Tongkat Ali, Eurycomanone in unprocessed Tongkat Ali roots is present in levels too small and too insignificant to offer therapeutic benefit.

To combat the naturally occurring low levels of the therapeutic quassinoids found in Tongkat Ali and to offer unparalleled support, our Tahna Prana Elevated Tongkat Ali Extract Capsules combine a potent full spectrum (200:1 / 200x) Tongkat Ali extract at equal amounts with a Tongkat Ali extract standardized to 2% Eurycomanone. This unique combination maximizes Tongkat Ali's broad benefits with its specific Pro-Androgenic benefits. *

Piperine

Piperine is a compound present in Black Pepper (Piper nigrum). Here, Piperine offers two main functions as a Phyto-Therapeutic: Firstly, Piperine can increase the absorption of other herbs, including turmeric, by 2000% (see more below).

Secondly, Piperine is an exercise memetic, meaning it can mimic some of the benefits of exercise (again, more on this below).

The effective dose of Piperine is between 10 and 20 milligrams. Each serving of this formula contains 20 milligrams of Piperine—only 4.17% of the total ingredients. You receive all the benefits without compromising the total amount of Tongkat Ali.

Key Benefits Associated With Tongkat Ali

Tongkat Ali is much more than just an outstanding pro-androgenic herb. Focusing only on its pro-androgenic properties does Tongkat Ali a disservice.

Ample contemporary scientific research on Tongkat Ali illuminates the significance of the long-standing traditional uses of the herb.

  • Traditionally used in Indonesia as an aphrodisiac and tonic herb, as well as a folk medicine for several tropical diseases. *

What is Tongkat Ali?

Tongkat Ali is a traditional Phyto-Therapeutic medicine of Southeast Asia. In addition to Tongkat Ali, it is sometimes called Pasak Bumi or Longjack. Tongkat Ali is the common name for the plant botanically known as Eurycoma longifolia Jack.

Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) is native to Southeast Asia (Indochina) and Indonesia, which includes Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Borneo, and Sumatra. The bark of the roots of Eurycoma longifolia is used for its medicinal and Phyto-Therapeutic properties. *

Two other plants have been mislabeled as Tongkat Ali, commonly referred to as Black Tongkat Ali and Red Tongkat Ali.

Botanically, the authentic—or true—Tongkat Ali plant is Eurycoma longifolia Jack, which can be shortened to Eurycoma longifolia or E. longifolia. These names can be used synonymously, yet care should be taken to minimize confusion between Eurycoma longifolia and other plants mislabeled as Tongkat Ali.

To avoid confusion between authentic Tongkat Ali and these other botanically distinct plants, unless we are directly addressing this misunderstanding, we exclusively use the name Tongkat Ali to reference Eurycoma longifolia Jack.

Why make the distinction?

Distinguishing authentic Tongkat Ali—Eurycoma longifolia Jack—is critical because the historical use of Tongkat Ali as a medicinal, Phyto-Therapeutic herb and the significate amount of contemporary research validating it is exclusive to Tongkat Ali from Eurycoma longifolia.

The most common plant misidentified as Tongkat Ali is Polyalthia bullata, often distinguished from authentic Tongkat Ali by calling it Black Tongkat Ali. It is also known as Pasak Mubi.

Polyalthia bullata shares no botanical relationship with Eurycoma longifolia. While Polyalthia bullata may hold potential as a Phyto-Therapeutic herb, it should not be misidentified as Tongkat Ali from Eurycoma longifolia.

Identifying the Different Colors of Tongkat Ali

Some classify Tongkat Ali by color and understanding the origins of these classifications can help identify true Tongkat Ali.

White Tonkgat Ali & Yellow Tonkgat Ali

White Tongkat Ali and Yellow Tongkat Ali refer to the botanically correct Tongkat Ali: Eurycoma longifolia Jack.

As mentioned above, bark from the roots of Tongkat Ali is used for its medicinal properties. The bark is light in color and results in the extract being yellowish.

In Malay (the language of Malaysia) and Indonesian, authentic Tongkat Ali is called Bedara Putih and Pasak Bumi Kuning.

In these languages, Putih translates as "white," and Kuning translates as "yellow."

Black Tongkat Ali

Black Tongkat Ali refers to the plant Polyalthia bullata; however, this plant bears no botanical relationship to Eurycoma longifolia. While the plant may contain Phyto-Therapeutic benefits, it does not have the extended historical use or scientific evidence to support it, as does Tongkat Ali from Eurycoma longifolia.

In Malay and Indonesian, Black Tonkgat Ali is known as Pasak Bumi Hitam.

In these languages, Hitam translates as "black."

Red Tongkat Ali

Very little is known about Red Tongkat Ali—so little that no botanical plant name can be cited.

The closest we can get to identifying Red Tongkat Ali is Stema tuberosa; which you will find for sale on the internet.

The problem is that no such plant exists.

There is Stemona tuberosa, native to a similar region as Eurycoma longifolia and Polyalthia bullata, yet Stemona tuberosa bears no relationship to either, botanically or in use as a phyto-therapeutic.

In Chinese medicine, Stemona tuberosa is used therapeutically. Named Bai Bu (Hundred Parts), Stemona tuberosa is used for the treatment of parasites and to moisten the lungs and relieve coughing.

In Malay and Indonesian, Red Tonkgat Ali is referred to as Pasak Bumi Merah.

In these languages, Merah translates as "red."

It is possible that the plant exists but has not reached the West. More research is required into what—if anything—Red Tongkat Ali is before its safety or effectiveness of it can be assessed. We found zero entries in the scientific or research databases for "Stema Tuberosa" or "Pasak Bumi Merah."

A single entry can be found in the database of the National Institutes of Health, which is a paper discussing the use of authentic Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) as an alternative treatment to pharmaceutical testosterone replacement therapy in the treatment of osteoporosis. This paper does not include any mention of Black or Red Tongkat Ali.

Quassinoids: The Active Compounds of Tongkat Ali

Several therapeutic quassinoid compounds have been isolated and identified in Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia Jack). These quassinoids possess various positive actions (benefits) in the body. *

Research into the isolated quassinoids in Tongkat Ali highlights the broad benefits of the herb (including the possible anti-tumor, antiviral, antifeedant, antiamoebic, and anti-inflammatory properties) and highlights the pro-androgenic properties of Tongkat Ali. *

Tongkat Ali contains 65 isolated, known, and identified compounds, including:

  • Beta-carboline alkaloids;
  • Eurycomalactone;
  • Eurycomanone;
  • Eurycomaoside. *

Tongkat Ali, Eurycomanone, and Testosterone

Does Tongkat Ali Increase Testosterone?

One of the noteworthy quassinoids present in Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia)—and one of the most relevant—is Eurycomanone.

Comprehensive research indicates that Eurycomanone is responsible for the Pro-Androgenic properties of Tongkat Ali.

In a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, researchers write:

Eurycoma longifolia Jack (Simaroubaceae family), known locally as 'Tongkat Ali' by the ethnic population, is popularly taken as a traditional remedy to improve the male libido, sexual prowess, and fertility ... Eurycomanone, the highest concentrated quassinoid in the root extract of E. longifolia improved fertility by increasing testosterone and spermatogenesis of rats through the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis, but the mechanisms underlying the effects are not totally clear.

The researchers conclude:

Eurycomanone enhanced testosterone steroidogenesis at the Leydig cells by inhibiting aromatase conversion of testosterone to oestrogen, and at a high concentration may also involve phosphodiesterase inhibition. The quassinoid may be worthy for further development as a phytomedicine to treat testosterone-deficient idiopathic male infertility and sterility.

In short, the researchers found that the compound Eurycomanone in Tongkat Ali increased testosterone levels and sperm production. It did this by increasing the body's own production of testosterone by activating the HPA/HPG axis and by stopping the enzyme aromatase from turning testosterone into estradiol (E2).

This research indicates two separate Pro-Androgenic properties present in Tongkat Ali:

  1. Increasing testosterone production;
  2. Increasing levels of free (active) testosterone by blocking the conversion of testosterone to estradiol. *

It is hard to stress just how unique and essential these dual properties are and how unique and essential Tongkat Ali is as a Pro-Androgenic herb.

Tongkat Ali, Libido, and Dopamine—The Neurotransmitter of Desire

Does Tongkat Ali Increase Libido?

In both herbal medicine circles and academic research, Tongkat Ali's effects on promoting libido are widely understood and accepted. Because the positive effects of Tongkat Ali on male sex hormones have long been known, it was assumed that Tongkat Ali affected libido only by increasing testosterone levels. And without a doubt, there is a relationship between Tongkat Ali, sex hormone levels, and sexual desire.

But there is more to the story—Dopamine.

We often think of dopamine as the reward neurotransmitter. Dopamine makes that first bite of food taste way better than the second. Dopamine is what makes us feel good when we accomplish a goal. But think of dopamine less as the reward neurotransmitter and more as the neurotransmitter of desire. Dopamine not only rewards us for achieving a goal; it motivates us to pursue that goal. Without dopamine, we have no drive. No motivation. No desire. Libido is desire.

The science behind Tongkat Ali and dopamine is compelling, with researchers stating that:

The current data confirm the aphrodisiac and anabolic activities of E. longifolia roots aqueous extract in male Sprague-Dawley rats. This can be attributed, at least partly, to elevation of blood testosterone level as well as enhancement of brain cortical and hippocampal dopamine content.

What this means is that in addition to its influences on testosterone levels, Tongkat Ali has been shown to increase dopamine levels and that higher levels of dopamine result in increased libido.

    Usually one capsule is a good dosage for my system. It's a very warm tonic. I've used this off and on for years and find it beneficial.

  • I feel better than I did in my early twenties 5

    Posted by Dustan on Nov 12, 2019

    After doing much research into herbal products, I’d found this to be one of the few that used human subjects in the experiments. The studies I found showed 30-46% increases in serum testosterone levels. I had my levels tested prior to starting this product and will have them tested again shortly. However, I wanted to leave a review because I feel amazing. My motivation and strength in the gym has been better than it was 5-10 years ago. My sense of well-being and confidence has increased and I even notice more body hair growth. So, even though I don’t have my Blood Test results yet, I am certain that my testosterone levels have been positively impacted. Thank you so much !
