To offer this improved extract, we have increased the price. There is no way around this. With the increase in potency comes a substantial increase in our costs to produce it.

Who Is Tongkat Ali Right For?
Tongkat Ali is ideal for men desiring to rebuild healthy testosterone levels.*
Tongkat Ali is a powerful Pro-Androgenic herb that is used to promote healthy testosterone levels.* Using Tongkat Ali (or any Pro-Androgenic herb) to heal from low testosterone is not promoting hyper-masculinity. Instead—and in stark contrast to—using Tongkat Ali is promoting holistic, vital health and aging (including mental health) while supporting a long, fulfilled life.*
Who Isn't Tongkat Ali Right For?
As a tonic and adaptogenic herb, the benefits of Tongkat Ali reveal themselves—become noticeable and apparent—when used consistently and over time.
Tongkat Ali does not supplement the body with testosterone; instead, it works with the body to support increases in (endogenous) testosterone production.* This takes time.
While Tongkat Ali is ideal for those in search of a natural way to promote health and wellness, Tongkat Ali is not right for those seeking a "quick-fix."
Tongkat Ali is a Pro-Androgenic and Adaptogenic herb of the elite level.*
Tongkat Ali Is Not Just a Pro-Androgenic Herb
Tongkat Ali is much more than an outstanding Pro-Androgenic herb, so much so that we believe the focus solely on Tongkat Ali's Pro-Androgenic properties is doing it a disservice.
Tongkat Ali Extract may support the following:
- The body's own (endogenous) production of the male sex, androgenic hormones, including Testosterone;
- Enhanced libido and desire;
- Lean muscle mass;
- In laboratory research, Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia Jack) has demonstrated anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties, including beneficial actions against prostate cancer cells (let it be extremely clear, RAW Forest Foods is not claiming that Tongkat Ali—or any product—is a cure for cancer);
- Benefiting male reproductive health;
- Traditionally used in Indonesia as an aphrodisiac and tonic herb, as well as a folk medicine for several tropical diseases. *
Customer Reviews of Tongkat Ali Extract Powder and Extract Capsules
I feel better than I did in my early twenties
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!
Some Of the Best Out Here
The quality of RAW Forest Foods Tongkat is some of the best I’ve had. It has a slightly bitter taste, but that’s how you know it’s authentic. I feel re-energized when I take it and it’s long term use (used alongside other herbs) has also promoted a strong and healthy immune system for me and my family =)
Tongkat Ali Extract Key Benefits
Ample contemporary, scientific research has been performed on Tongkat Ali, shedding light on the long-standing traditional uses of the herb. Additionally, this research has revealed even more potential uses for Tongkat Ali outside the realm of its ethnobotanical history.
Today, the vast majority of research on Tongkat Ali focuses on the following possible benefits and uses of the herb (provided as reference):
- Anti-aging and antioxidant properties;
- Improvement of brain function;
- Strong aphrodisiac and sexual health restoration;
- Significantly increases testosterone production;
- Increases vasodilation;
- Immune system modulator;
- Anti-fatigue properties and metabolism correction;
- Skin quality rejuvenation;
- Anti-oxidant properties 15 times greater than resveratrol;
- Strengthen bowel movements;
- Promote healthy circulation and circulatory system;
- Nutrition and nourishment;
- Increase strength and athletic performance.*
As time passes, and as an increasing amount of research is done into Tongkat Ali, the plant continues to reveal itself.
The wide-ranging benefits the herb awards is the exact reason why we promote using a broad, full-spectrum Tongkat Ali Extract.
By using a broad, full spectrum extract, as is our 200:1 concentrated extract, all of the medicinal and therapeutic compounds present in Tongkat Ali are conserved. With that said, we recognize that most who are using Tongkat Ali are doing so to support healthy testosterone levels.
Eurycomanone and the Isolated Compounds Present in Tongkat Ali
Several therapeutic quassinoid compounds have been isolated and identified in Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia Jack). These quassinoids are known to possess a myriad of positive actions (benefits) in the body.
Research into the isolated quassinoids in Tongkat Ali both highlight the broad benefits of the herb (the possible anti-tumor, antiviral, antifeedant, antiamoebic, and anti-inflammatory properties) and highlight the pro-androgenic properties benefits of Tongkat Ali.
Tongkat Ali contains 65 isolated, known and identified compounds, including:
- Beta-carboline alkaloids;
- Eurycomaoside. *
Does Tongkat Ali Increase Testosterone?
Tongkat Ali, Eurycomanone, and Testosterone
The major quassinoid present in Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) is Eurycomanone. Research indicates Eurycomanone is what makes Tongkat Ali such a potent pro-androgenic herb.
In a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, researchers write that:
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 that:
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 Eurycomanone present in Tongkat Ali increased testosterone levels and sperm production by stimulating the body's own endogenous production of testosterone by activating the HPA/HPG axis, and that Eurycomanone decreased the conversion of testosterone to estradiol (e2) by blocking the enzyme aromatase.
This research indicated that Tongkat Ali has two separate pro-androgenic properties:
- Increasing testosterone production;
- Increasing levels of free (active) testosterone by blocking the conversion of testosterone to estradiol. *
It is hard to stress just how unique and important of a pro-androgenic herb this makes Tongkat Ali.
Does Tongkat Ali Increase Dopamine?
Tongkat Ali and the Neurotransmitter of Desire
In both herbal medicine circles and in academic research, the effects of Tongkat Ali on promoting libido are widely understood and accepted. Long attributed to the increase in testosterone production and in protecting against raising estrogen (estradiol), it was assumed that Tongkat Ali drove libido by driving testosterone. And, without a doubt, the connection between Tongkat Ali, sex hormone levels, and sexual desire is unbroken.
But there is more to the story—Dopamine.
We often think of dopamine as the reward neurotransmitter. Dopamine is what 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 I think of dopamine less as the reward neurotransmitter and more as the desire neurotransmitter. Because dopamine doesn't just reward us for achieving a goal, but it motivates us to pursue that goal. Without dopamine we have no drive. No motivation. No desire.
The science behind this 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 more dopamine means higher libido.
What is True Tongkat Ali?
True, authentic Tongkat ali is known botanically as Eurycoma longifolia Jack, and it is one of the most interesting (and strongest) pro-androgenic herbs that we know of. However, there are two main issues facing the use of Tongkat Ali.
The first issue is that with Tongkat Ali's recent popularity, a large amount of misunderstanding and misinformation has been promoted and has been presented as fact.
There are several different plants that are commonly referred to as Tongkat Ali, but only the yellow Eurycoma longifolia is true Tongkat Ali.
Research only validates the effectiveness of Eurycoma longifoloa Jack, although many seemingly reputable companies sell other types of "Tongkat Ali," such as "Red Tongkat Ali" and "Black Tongkat Ali." The issue is that neither of those are Tongkat Ali.
At RAW Forest Foods, we offer only true Eurycoma longifolia extract, either as a broad, full spectrum 200:1 concentrated extract or as our isolated Eurycomanone extract.
The second issue is that Eurycomanone, the pro-androgenic compound present in Tongkat Ali, occurs at very low levels. In the unextracted root, the levels are too low to offer any effectiveness.

How to Use Tonic and Adaptogenic Herbs
Tongkat Ali is an adaptogenic and tonic herb, and so being, consistency and time are vital in receiving the full benefits of it.
Adaptogens and tonics are herbs which work with the body to produce change and adaptation. In fact, the root word in "adaptogen" is adapt. This type of change—this type of adaptation—requires dedication, consistency, and time, but it is also the most profound and the most beneficial.
Before evaluating the effectiveness of any adaptogen or tonic, we advocate a trial of between four and six weeks of daily use.
Similar to exercise, while a single workout is good for you and will most likely make you feel better, no real change will be seen without dedication, consistency, and time.
RAW Forest Foods offers a full 60 days refund policy on all products. This extended refund policy allows ample time for a customer to judge the effectiveness of these types of products.
And as the saying goes, "Give yourself enough time to be successful." And this applies to adaptogens, too.
Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use if safety seal is damaged or missing. Store at room temperature.
Herb cycling schedules can be beneficial when healing. If you prefer to rotate your adaptogenic, pro-androgenic, and tonic herbs, we suggest a schedule of five days on, and two days off, or four weeks on and one week off. *
