Top 5 Questions We're Asked at Herbolab

So many of us talk about things we want to do — “I want to lose weight” or “I want to feel younger” — but we never get specific about HOW we want to do them. We just leave them as dreams.

Then, when we get confronted with an opportunity that might help us get closer to our goal, some of us get scared and nervous and skeptical. This is a completely understandable reaction, in fact, it should be our “default” mode. Especially when so many unscrupulous companies are making all sorts of claims.

I get a TON of questions daily, today I’m answering the top 5.

Top 5 Questions We're Asked at Herbolab

Q. I’ve seen the same tongkat ali product much cheaper, why is yours so expensive?

A. No you haven’t see the SAME product, what you saw is probably: (1) a nonconcentrated version or (2) a fake/dubious product from China (get full details about those in my article here).

Let’s review the facts: Tongkat ali is a small tree that grows wild in the jungle, it’s becoming increasingly scarce and it takes a good amount of manual labor to harvest. Each bottle of tongkat ali 1:200 you buy from me was made out of almost 5 kg of raw material.

That material has to be transported from the jungle to the manufacturing facility, has to be processed, encapsulated, tested for quality, shipped to Singapore, tested again, bottled…

Then there has to be enough margin to pay to cover for people hired to do customer support, website software and maintenance, storing, logistics, all sort of fees, etc. I don’t mean to bore you with the details, but if you see a concentrated tongkat ali that cost $30, then obviously it can’t be the same product.

The real thing is expensive, and it can only get more expensive over time.

Q. How long before sex should I take the product?

A. Unfortunately, this is the wrong question. Our products are not like prescription medications, not even close. If you think you can take them one hour before your moment of truth and you will be ready to go, then you got the wrong impression somewhere.

Our products are natural products that can help when using consistently over time. They are not “quick fixes”, they need to build up in your system.

Moreover, they work best when you adopt a healthy lifestyle in combination to taking these supplements.

In summary, you can’t expect to take them just before you need them. You have to commit to the change you want to see and put the effort it requires.

Q. Will I have to take them for life?

A. Yes and no.

The bad news is that any effects any supplement can bring will disappear over time when you stop taking the supplement. That’s life.

The good news is, it can help you “snowball” positive change that will last.

Let me explain.

Remember the story of Wayne from my previous email?

Thanks to the positive changes he started to see when taking the products he got motivated to join a gym, which brought even more positive change. Then he was motivated to stop drinking and eating healthier.

That’s the snowball effect.

Wayne needed less product to support the level of the effect he was looking for after some time, in fact, he used tongkat ali and maca as a support, not as the main means.

That’s what a supplement is supposed to be, extra help.

Q. Does tongkat ali help increasing penis size?

A. I don’t think so. I can’t say “no” for sure because I have a bunch of customers that report increased size.

At the same time I can’t say “yes” because there is no study to prove it and honestly, it just doesn’t seem possible.

I think that tongkat ali could help with blood flow to the penis, which could give the effect of increased size. However, I highly doubt it will help you grow the tissue and muscle per se.

If you are looking for size, you will have a better chance doing stretching exercises than taking pills.

If you’re looking for more information, I have written about penis enlargement here and here.

Q. What if I don’t get any results, how can you guarantee it will work for me?

I can’t guarantee any result. In all honesty, there is a chance that you won’t experience any benefits.

I want to be clear that supplements are not miracle cures.

The term “clinically proven efficacy” means that in scientific studies it shows that there is a greater chance to experience a result than what is expected if you took a pill without active substances.

In other words, increases your chances, but that doesn’t mean “for sure”.

You might not experience the benefits you are looking for in the following cases:

  • Any health supplement has a percentage of users that do not respond to them.
  • If your expectations are unreasonable, you might get disappointed. Example: if you expect an everlasting erection within 30 minutes of taking it, you are better off buying prescription medication. That’s why in an earlier email I was asking for your goals.
  • If you are experiencing sexual issues that are not related to lack of testosterone (example: drugs side effects, psychological, etc.) then supplements might not be able to help.
  • If you don’t take the products consistently or never put some effort into having a better lifestyle, the results might be inconsistent.

That’s that, plain and simple. I don’t want to discourage you, I just want you to have realistic expectations.

The fact is, it can work if done properly, and that’s why a lot of my customers keep coming back.

As long as you are not expecting a miracle and are ready to make a commitment to use consistently, you have a good chance to get positive effects.

The next step…
