Tongkat Ali Helps Boost Testosterone Naturally

John Gray


The candles are lit and some romantic music is playing, but instead of fireworks in the bedroom, you find frustration. And it’s not because of the music. When couples experience a lack of libido or sexual dysfunction in the bedroom, it can create a tremendous amount of stress in an otherwise healthy relationship.

Some men between the ages of 40 and 55 can begin to have trouble getting an erection when the moment is otherwise perfect. This is a sign of declining testosterone levels. 

Low testosterone levels have been closely linked to many severe health conditions, like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, hypertension and stroke. As with most life-threatening health conditions, the symptoms are often smaller in the beginning. As testosterone begins declining, it can trigger several quality of life issues like increased fatigue, irritability, depression, lack of focus, poor memory, reduced muscle mass and strength, more body fat and, often the most troubling for men, a loss of libido and fewer spontaneous erections.


Sex Over 40

Your sex life does not stop at 40. The drive is still there. You just need the right fuel.

Men are often prescribed medications that treat erectile dysfunction. The most popular medications, like Cialis (tadalafil) and Viagra (sildenafil), increase blood flow to the penis to help it grow into a healthy erection. And they work.

Unfortunately the side effects can be severe. The more common side effects of Cialis are heartburn, indigestion, belching and stomach discomfort. Viagra comes with the common side effects of diarrhea, headaches, and muscle pain. 

Fortunately, there are natural alternatives that can be just as helpful without these side effects.

My favorite thing is called Tonkat Ali.


What Is Tonkat Ali?

Eurycoma Longifolia Jack is a tall shrub tree which is found in the lush rain forests of Thailand. The most common name of the shrub is Tonkat Ali, which translates to “Ali’s Walking Stick,” but it is also called Pasak Bumi or Long Jack.

Tonkat Ali helps increase testosterone in the blood. It is not a testosterone replacement, nor does is directly increase testosterone. 

Other products that either replace or stimulate high levels of testosterone have all kinds of side effects. When people use testosterone creams or take hormones to boost their testosterone levels, it can cause their bodies to produce less natural testosterone and eventually none at all. Testosterone replacements can also boost your testosterone levels higher than you may need. As a consequence, excess testosterone turns into estrogen, which can turn into belly fat.


Beyond The Bedroom

Tonkat Ali has gained interest among athletes and people who exercise too. Research has shown that 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. By increasing ATP, overall energy and vitality are increased. Studies on humans show that Tonkat Ali supplements increase ATP by creating a favorable anabolic state (building up), while suppressing the catabolic state (breaking down) of muscles.

It’s always good to start slowly with any new supplement. For Tonkat Ali, I suggest starting with 1 capsule each day in the morning for five days and then take two days off. After 7-10 days, start taking 2 capsules each day in the morning for 5 days and continue to take 2 days off. This mimics the natural rise and fall of testosterone in the body. You should notice a difference in your body, brain and the bedroom after a week of taking two each day.
