Tongkat Ali Root Extract

What Is Tongkat Ali Extract?

Tongkat Ali Extract is a natural testosterone booster that works in a unique way to safely increase your natural production of testosterone; this can have many positive results, such as; reversing the effects of Erectile Dysfunction while increasing your ability to burn body fat and increase muscle mass.

How Tongkat Ali Extract Works

Tongkat Ali contains a combination of the following active ingredients:

  • Scopoletin
  • Eurycomanone
  • 9-methoxycanthin-6-one
  • Laurycolactone A
  • Eurylene
  • β-carboline-l-propionic acid
  • 3β-hydroxy-stigmast-5,22-dien-7-one
  • 13β,21-dihydroxyeurycomanone
  • Iandonol

These compounds work in unison stimulating the Pituitary gland, increasing natural testosterone production while at the same time blocking the negative feedback cycle that occurs when your testosterone level reaches its natural peak. 

As your characteristic peak is reached without Tongkat Ali, your body sends a signal that initiates a decrease in testosterone production; The active ingredients found in Tongkat Ali block this signal allowing your body to produce testosterone at a steadily increasing rate well above your natural level.

The results of increased testosterone in the body are an increase in strength, easier to build muscle mass, a reduction of body fat and increase sex drive.

Why use Tongkat Ali Extract?

Tongkat Ali extract is an effective natural and safe testosterone booster, if you find yourself suffering from the symptoms of low testosterone, Tongkat Ali is an excellent first choice option to remedy these symptoms.

If you are perfectly healthy and looking to push your testosterone level to the maximum to take advantage of the many benefits of high testosterone for muscle building, there is nothing better than standardized Tongkat Ali Extract to achieve your goals safely.

Week (2) By week two you should notice a steady increase in strength and a faster recovery rate after training.

Week (3) During week three you should experience strength increasing, further as well as a heightened sense of well-being. You may also notice a slight increase in aggressiveness towards your workout and a slightly shorter temper than normal this is just a side effect of the extra testosterone in your body (if you find it hard to control your aggression stop taking the Tongkat until you feel you're ready to continue the cycle).

Independent Studies 

In 2003 Tongkat Ali was clinically tested against a placebo and came back with impressive results, the effects of Eurycoma Longifolia Jack documented in the British Journal of Sports Medicine (Article Number 007) The tests show a significant increase in testosterone levels over a 12 week period of usage compared to those using the placebo.

This resulted in the candidates that took the Tongkat Ali having a greater increase in fat-free mass at the end of the trial.

Other Tests on Tongkat Ali

Guidelines For Buying Tongkat Ali Root Extract

1. IDEALLY purchase a standardized Tongkat Ali root extract. TKA 1:200 standardized Tongkat Ali extract is safe and effective for bodybuilding, post cycle therapy or used to boost testosterone for sexual health and low testosterone-related symptoms.

If you decided not to purchase a standardized extract for whatever reason, please look for a 1:200 extract of Indonesian origin that states root extract, not just ground Tongkat Ali or your purchase is likely to be very weak or ineffective.

2. BEWARE of brands claiming high milligram content of their capsules, some will claim 600/800mg capsules when in fact the capsule contains 350/380mg. You can check this yourself with a good set of scales or feel free to send us your capsules, and we will be happy to check them for you.

3. BEWARE of genuine 100% pure Tongkat Ali extract available on the market for less than $55 to $60 USD per 36-gram.

Even when purchased by the metric ton, after transportation, encapsulation, packaging costs plus any other overheads involved in bringing a Tongkat Ali Extract product to market, genuine 1:200 Tongkat Ali standardized extract can't realistically be sold for anything less than $1.50/gram and still worth the effort.

The only reason you will see products claiming to be Tongkat Ali Extract at prices lower than this is because they started life as a genuine extract of some quality and then became mixed down with ground up root powder to save costs.

Alcohol, Water or HPLC Based Extract

You will read of three variants of Tongkat Ali Extract method, Water, Alcohol and HPLC Standardized, we'll break those down into more detail below;

  • WATER Eurycoma Longifolia Jack is quite sensitive to the acidic effects of alcohol, so water is used improving the intact ELJ. 
  • ALCOHOL typically an alcohol/water blend, this was used in the past although since tests showed that Eurycomanone can be rendered useless by the acidity of the alcohol it fastly fell out of trend with manufactures.
  • HPLC Standardized Extract is a modern and ultra clean method of producing Eurycomanone extract primarily intended for sale in the European and U.S. markets. To learn more about Standardized Tongkat Ali Extract please Click Here

    TKA 1:200 HPLC Standardized Extract

    HPLC standardized Tongkat Ali root extract, is an extract produced using modern analysis equipment during the liquid stage; this guarantees an extract that meets a strict set of specifications regarding the strength, safety, and quality.

    To produce a Tongkat Ali extract that boosts testosterone effectively, the extract must contain a very specific mix of the following active components:


    • Scopoletin
    • Eurycomanone
    • 9-methoxycanthin-6-one
    • Laurycolactone A
    • Eurylene
    • β-carboline-l-propionic acid
    • 3β-hydroxy-stigmast-5,22-dien-7-one
    • 13β,21-dihydroxyeurycomanone
    • Iandonol


    In traditional Tongkat Ali extract, the percentage and purity of each active component varies greatly from batch to batch; this meant that you could never be sure how effective your Tongkat Ali purchase would be, despite the strength rating marked on the bottle.

    With TKA 1:200 Standardized Extract, High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) testing is administered during the liquid stage of the extract process, this test is continuously monitoring the purity and specific makeup of the extract.

    Only when the extract meets the required specifications set by World A.B.S will the extract be approved for the drying stage.

    The Benefits of Using Standardized Extract

    Safety: The new HPLC standardization method allows for a 100% contaminate free extract to be produced every time.

    Strength: Because the HPLC extraction process is entirely controlled from start to finish, a consistent strength extract is produced every batch.

    Dosage: With each batch of TKA 1:200 standardised Tongkat Ali extract identical in strength and quality, reliable dosage information can be used delivering consistent results.

    Results: With the standardized specifications for TKA 1:200 Extract the testosterone boosting effects are both more effective and 100% constant from batch to batch.

    Sustainability: With the new controlled levels and testing during the extraction process Tongkat Ali root is no longer selected by color or age, and can be chosen from a wider range of sources.

    Tongkat Ali Dosage

    For best results using Tongkat Ali while bodybuilding it's recommended that you follow the manufactures directions and take your extract three capsules per day, spread evenly throughout your day.

    A six to eight-week cycle is what most bodybuilders typically run with a break period lasting around 40% of your on cycle time, for example if you ran an eight-week cycle you would want to take a break of no less than three and a half weeks.

    If you are using Tongkat Ali to increase your sex drive as many people do, a shorter cycle period is often used. Some users have been known to cycle five days on, two days off as they only wish to increase their testosterone levels slightly but stay on the Tongkat Ali for extended periods of time, again five days on two days off meets the recommended 40% off cycle time.
