Tongkat Ali is a family of flowering plants native to Indonesia, Malaysia, and, to a lesser extent, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. It has been well documented that extracts from the Tongkat Ali Root cause serum testosterone levels to increase with subsequent improvements in physical and psychological parameters that are routinely linked to proper testosterone levels. Improved bone density, increased muscle mass, increased strength, reduction in body fat composition, renewed sexual vitality, heightened sexual desire, improvement in sperm count, and elevated sense of well-being have all been demonstrated as effects of the use of Tongkat Ali Root.

It has been noted that most Southeast Asians consume it for the plant's impact on sexual conduct, such that Tongkat Ali has gained notoriety as a symbol of a man's ego and strength because it increases male virility and sexual prowess during sexual activities. A news article from the scientific journal Nature Medicine referred to Tongkat Ali Root as Malaysia's home-grown Viagra.

In in vitro tests, it was found that Tongkat Ali Root increases sperm count. The authors also reported that the plasma testosterone level of the participants was significantly increased when compared with that of the control group. Another group of scientists confirmed that Tongkat Ali Root has the capacity to reverse the inhibitory effects of estrogen on testosterone production and spermatogenesis.

Another journal article cited as result that Tongkat Ali had an effect similar to testosterone replacement therapy in counteracting osteoporosis. An Italian study on the botanical extract noted improved sexual performance in lab animals that could be mainly ascribed to increased testosterone levels.

After scientists investigating Tongkat Ali Root’s effect on sexual parameters had established that sexualizing effects went hand-in-hand with increased testosterone tone, researchers in the field of sports medicine started to look into the anabolic potential of the plant. In a placebo-controlled human study with healthy young men in a weight-training program, it was found that the lean body mass of the treatment group showed a significant improvement. Furthermore, the increase in strength in the treatment group was larger than in the placebo group. The mean arm circumference of the treatment group increased significantly after the supplementation with Tongkat Ali Root but there was no significant increase in the placebo group. The results of the study were published in the peer-reviewed British Journal of Sports Medicine.

The anabolic impact of Tongkat Ali Root has been confirmed!

Further research by endocrinologists have verified this botanical extract’s amazing impact on serum testosterone levels. It has long been known that testosterone increases the body’s ratio of lean muscle mass to fat.

In a human study, half of the subjects ingested Tongkat Ali Root extract and half did not. In an eight-week physical training program, the men who consumed the extract experienced greater gains in muscle mass and strength than the placebo group. This demonstrates the powerful anabolic properties of Tongkat Ali Root. Instead of turning to the use of dangerous and potentially lethal steroids, perhaps more athletes will opt for Tongkat Ali Root.

In other studies by reproductive specialists it was again confirmed that Tongkat Ali Root extract increased the serum level of testosterone considerably. Heightened sexual desire and vitality increased correspondingly. The numerical findings were as follows: controlled consumption of Tongkat Ali Root  resulted in a 91 % improvement in libido, a reported 73 %improvement in sexual function and an 82 % psychological improvement relative to sex among the study participants.

This work clearly shows that while the level of testosterone in the blood decreases with age Tongkat Ali can increase the level of this important sex hormone.
