What is Tongkat Ali?
Tongkat Ali, also called Longjack, comes from a tree or flowering plant known as the Eurycoma longifolia. Native to areas of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Southeast Asia, this plant has also been used by these cultures for centuries as an immune system booster and for its aphrodisiac effects. The supplement is reported to help as not only a powerful sexual aid but is also a natural way of boosting testosterone.
Tongkat Ali and Testosterone
The primary benefit on Longjack, or Tongkat Ali extract, is that it helps to raise your levels of free testosterone naturally. This is actually quite important since the lionâ€™s share of testosterone that circulates throughout the body is bound by a protein called the sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Once your testosterone has become bound in this fashion it is considered ineffective, at least in terms of promoting all the benefits you have come to expect from natural testosterone. With an increased level of testosterone, it also becomes easier to build muscle and achieve top fitness levels. This can lead to gains in lean muscle mass as well as strength in weight training individuals.
Tongkat Ali Sexual Enhancement Benefits
Although it is somewhat unclear exactly how, Longjack is able to act as an aphrodisiac. There have been a number of studies bearing this out, including rat models showing those who took the supplement had more frequent erections and showed more interest in the females in their cage. This has been shown to lead to a higher sex drive, increased libido, and produce longer, harder, and more spontaneous erections.
Tongkat Ali Additional Benefits
Researchers have also determined several non-sexual related effects of Longjack. This includes being able to show significant cytotoxicity against unhealthy human lung and breast cell lines. Additional benefits include increased bone mineral density, an improved sense of well-being, and reduced stress levels.[2,3,6]
