Tongkat Ali Powder
Tongkat Ali is a slender shrub-like evergreen tree most often found in Southeast Asia. Tongkat Ali is used in traditional medicine in Malaysia to improve physical abilities and virility and is prepared as tea. The popularity of the Tongkat Ali plant has grown to such an extent that it is now a protected species. In addition to using the root from the Tongkat Ali plant for a number of different ailments and conditions, Tongkat Ali root and bark are commonly used for boosting athletic performance. Other conditions include fevers, bacterial infections, stress relief, and more.
Benefits of Tongkat Ali
While more research into the health benefits of Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) is still needed, initial studies and much of the research point towards a wide range of benefits that the plant offers, this includes improve mood, and increase muscle mass.
It is a powerful herb that has been used in traditional medicine for centuries for male-specific disorders related to aging. As men age, hormone levels decrease as part of a condition called ‘andropause’ (also called male menopause). Symptoms of andropause include lower desire, a lack of energy, increased mental lethargy, and body fat.
Tongkat Ali for Building Muscle Mass, Improving Athletic Performance and Body Composition
The Tongkat Ali plant may increase muscle mass and strength due to its effects on testosterone levels and will have a greater effect if combined with an intensive exercise routine. For this reason, it is used to boost athletic performance, build physical strength, and promote fat loss. A preliminary study found that 100mg per day for five weeks increased muscle mass and strength in men in an intensive strength training program. Lean body mass increased by 5%, while there was a significant reduction in body fat. This was in comparison to men who only followed the program with no supplementation.
A pilot study also showed that Tongkat Ali could also improve muscular strength in older adults. The study followed men and women between the ages of 57 and 72 over five weeks, taking a dosage of 400 mg of Eurycoma Longifolia extract per day. The extract was found to raise both free and total testosterone levels, as well as muscular force.
The plant contains quassinoids (including eurycomaoside, eurycolactone, and eurycomanone), which may help the body use energy more efficiently. Quassinoids are also associated with reducing fatigue and improving endurance. This means that the supplement works as an ergogenic aid, enhancing physical performance and improving body composition.
