AMINO Z TONGKAT ALI (100:1)
It is one of the harsh realities of aging – a diminished sense of self that is usually accompanied by a reduction in circulating androgens. Inevitably, most men that seek help end up using prescription testosterone replacement therapy, which may seem like the best option at the time.
However, with this comes one major problem – most men are not ready to make a lifetime commitment to using testosterone replacement, and when they decide to stop cold turkey, havoc is wreaked on their natural androgen profile. The end result? Worsening of the initial problems they were experiencing.
One supplement by the name of Tongkat Ali may help change this, as it has been gaining immense popularity in men looking for natural ways to support their hormone levels.
What is Tongkat Ali?
Also known as Eurycoma Longifolia, or “long Jack”, this plant has its origins in Southeast Asia, where it was used traditionally for centuries in the aging male population. Much of its beneficial effects on hormonal profiles is attributed to compounds known as quassinoids[i], which are largely unknown to many people.
Here are some of the most noteworthy benefits of Tongkat Ali that you may be interested in.
Tongkat Ali May Positively Benefit Testosterone Levels
Even though natives of Southeast Asia and Malaysia in particular swear by this effect, in Western medicine claims are hard to trust unless there is some amount of scientific proof surrounding them. One study conducted in 2012 investigated the effect of administration of 200 mg of water-soluble extract of Tongkat Ali over the course of one month on testosterone levels of 76 male subjects[ii].
At the beginning of the study only 36% of subjects had testosterone levels that were considered normal, while at the one month mark a total of 90% now found themselves within the normal range.
Another study which investigated the effect of supplementation on 25 physically active seniors also revealed similar findings, elevating both total and free testosterone values to high normal levels in the majority of subjects.
Tongkat Ali May Help Enhance Muscle Accrual
With the possibility of enhanced testosterone levels comes another very positive effect on the rate of muscle gain, which makes Tongkat Ali a very popular option among the natural bodybuilding crowd.
Studies confirming this are still in the early stages, but one there was one which investigated the combination of resistance training and Tongkat Ali supplementation in a group of 14 healthy men. Over the course of five weeks, subjects given the supplement gained an average of 2.13 kg of lean muscle mass, while the group given placebo showed no significant changes[iii].
Strength increases were also greater in the supplement group along with a greater degree of body fat reduction.
Tongkat Ali May Help Reduce Cortisol Levels
The hormones cortisol and testosterone share a negatively inverse relationship. What this means is that as one increases, the other decreases in similar fashion. They are also on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to muscle gain and loss.
One study known as the profile of mood states investigated supplementation of 200 mg Tongkat Ali against placebo in a group of 64 subjects – evenly split between male and females. The subjects were all considered moderately stressed.
At the end of the course of four weeks, the two groups were compared, with the supplement group experiencing an average 16% reduction cortisol levels and 37% increase in free testosterone[iv]. There was also a reduction in self-reported feelings of confusion, tension and anger.
This may reveal a possible link between the use of Tongkat Ali for the management of stress associated symptoms, both physical and psychological in nature.
May Benefit Men’s Sexual Health
It’s no secret that as men age various aspects of sexual health deteriorate. This can manifest as decreased libido, impaired erectile potency, or decreased sperm volume and motility.
Having been used for centuries in Malay and Thai cultures as an aphrodisiac, studies conducted in animals and humans alike are now confirming these truths, with it possibly benefiting erectile potency and sexual aggression.
It may even have a role as a fertility aid, since it can improve sperm count and motility. One small study of 75 couples found that the male partners given 200 mg Tongkat Ali daily over the course of three months yielded positive results – over 14% resulted in positive pregnancy[v].
Of course, further investigation is warranted but the findings to date are exciting.
Tongkat Ali may be old news throughout parts of Asia, but it is making big waves throughout other parts of the world. For best results be sure that you are getting a 100:1 strength extract. Total daily dosage is about 200 to 300 mg taken in spilt doses.
