Tongkat Ali is John Gray's favorite testosterone booster.
The hormone testosterone gives a man his beard and deep voice. It also may give all of us - men and women - better health and longer life.
Research shows that low levels of testosterone may increase the risk for heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, depression and Alzheimer's disease. Low testosterone can also trigger fatigue, enlarged prostate, muscular weakness, poor endurance, irritability, poor concentration and poor memory.
By the time men are between the ages of 40 and 55, they can begin experiencing symptoms of andropause or as John Gray calls it "man-o-pause" in his book, Venus On Fire Mars On Ice. Andropause or man-o-pause is characterized by a slowly diminishing level of testosterone. An estimated 40% of men age 45 and older have testosterone deficiency (total testosterone below 300 ng/dL.).
Tongkat Ali helps increase testosterone in your blood. This all natural herb is not testosterone replacement, nor does is directly increase testosterone. Instead it activates your body’s ability to make testosterone. Other products that either replace or stimulate high levels of testosterone usually have all kinds of side effects. By taking testosterone creams, your body stops making testosterone and your testis gradually begin to atrophy. In addition both testosterone creams other herbal products tend boost testosterone higher than you may need. As a consequence excess testosterone turns into estrogen which in turn turns into belly fat. John uses Tongkat Ali to get the good results and avoid these side effects.
Tongkat Ali is traditionally prescribed in Malaysia as an aphrodisiac. It also enhances energy levels, endurance and stamina, and reduces occasional mental fatigue.
Eurycoma Longifolia Jack is also known as Tongkat Ali, Long Jack, Pasak Bumi, and Ali's Walking Stick. We usually call it Tongkat Ali but John Gray sometimes says Longjack. It is not a testosterone replacement, nor does is directly increase testosterone. Instead it activates your body's ability to make natural testosterone when you need it most. Just a truly amazing, natural product.
It is also gaining interest among athletes because when you increase testosterone levels in your body, you can increase your muscle mass and your strength. Eurycoma longifolia increases energy production in the body by increasing ATP (Adenosine triphosphate). ATP is responsible for nearly all the energy production in the body. During heavy exercise, we can use up our ATP faster than we can replace it, so we become fatigued.
Studies into the therapeutic use of this herb at this time have mainly been restricted to animal models where the aphrodisiac properties of tongkat ali have been positive. One study using human subjects in 2005 found that Tongkat Ali increased HDLs (high density lipoproteins), which are necessary for healthy arteries. Basically, HDLs can help stop the build up of plaque in our arterial walls and lower our risk of heart attack. This same study reports that there was an increase in HGH (human growth hormone) when taking this herb, which may account for Tongkat Ali’s reputation as an anti-aging supplement. HGH lowers as we age; a person at sixty has about twenty percent of the HGH of a twenty year old.
Other products that either replace or stimulate high levels of testosterone have all kinds of side effects. When you use testosterone creams or take hormones to boost your testosterone levels, your body will produce even less natural testosterone and eventually none at all. Testosterone replacements also tend to boost your testosterone levels higher than you may need when you take them. As a consequence, excess testosterone turns into estrogen which turns into belly fat.
John Gray uses Tongkat Ali to enjoy results of increased testosterone and avoid the negative side effects that are possible with hormone replacements. John has tested many different brands of Eurycoma Longifolia Jack and he felt this brand produced the best effects on him. He tested his testosterone levels before and after taking this product and found his own testosterone levels were 25% higher after taking this product for awhile.
