Tongkat Ali Extract —— Benefits and Side Effects
Aug 30, 2017

What is the Tongkat Ali?

Tongkat ali (TA) is increasingly being used in male enhancement and testosterone booster supplements. Tongkat ali root extract is essentially a medicinal herb native to Southeast Asian countries including Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam. The locals call this plant the Malaysian ginseng, whereas scientists refer to it as Eurycoma longifolia.

The plant contains active ingredients such as eurycomalacton, eurycomanol and eurycomanon that make it ideal for treating a wide range of diseases. According to the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN), Tongkat ali extract powder has found use in enhancing libido, improving sports performance and weight loss, as an anti-ageing remedy, improving a person’s overall wellbeing, and reducing fatigue. 


Tongkat Ali Extract Benefits

* Boosting Libido

Tongkat ali contains a class of peptides called “eurypeptides” that improve sex drive. To achieve this goal, eurypeptides restore normal levels of testosterone by increasing the rate of release of “free” testosterone from the sex-hormone-binding-globulin (SHBG). As such, it works differently than say anabolic steroids that boost testosterone levels by enhancing “testosterone synthesis.”

* Treating Cancer

A study appearing in the Natural Products Journal states that this herb’s root extracts contain beta-carboline alkaloids that show significant cytotoxicity against breast and lung cancer cells. Researchers involved in this study were able to identify 3 new beta-carboline alkaloids and 19 existing ones that are highly cytotoxic.

* Anti-bacterial Characteristics

Acetone and alcoholic extracts from the Malaysian ginseng leaves and stem have potent antibacterial agents, according to the results of a study carried out in Malaysia and published in the Saudi Medical Journal. Extracts used in this study were effective against Staphylococcus, Serratia marscesens, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella typhi bacteria strains.

* Treating Malaria(Also suggested the  (+)-Artemisinin)

Researchers involved in the same study on Tongkat Ali extract’s effects on cancer cells published in the Natural Products Journal also found that beta-carboline extracts are effective at treating malaria.

* Stress Reliever

According to a study published in the ISSN Journal, 200 mg of TA root extract taken every day lowers cortisol levels leading to improvements in one’s stress hormone profile.

* Anxiety Remedy

A study published in the Japanese Journal of Pharmacology found that this plant is an effective remedy for anxiety . In fact, this study showed that TA produces similar anxiolytic effects as those produced by diazepam.

* Testosterone Booster for Men with Late-onset Hypogonadism

Late on-set hypogonadism (LOH) is a condition in which the body’s testosterone production is inadequate. In the US, LOH affects three million men. The good news is this herb’s extracts can improve the Aging Males’ Symptoms (AMS) scores of such men, according to a study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).


Tongkat Ali Extract Side Effects

* Increased metabolic body heat. 

To counter this side effect, you should increase your daily water intake

* Insomnia. 

Tongkat ali extract can cause insomnia as the body gets used to its effect. To avoid this, it is advisable to start with small doses if taking the plant’s extracts for the first time.

Abnormally high levels of testosterone may increase irritability, impatience and restlessness. Just like any other medication, exceeding the recommended daily dosage can prove dangerous. An NIH publication recommends 50 to 200 mg per day of water-extracted Eurycoma longifolia root standardized to 22% eurypeptides. Tongkat Ali extract’s bitter taste may put off some people. However, the NIH warns that Eurycoma longifolia extracts that do not taste bitter are either fake or sub-potent.
