I just started taking this herb with the hope of quick results. I hope it works but for now, I will give 3 stars and if it works I will make it 4. †
A friend of mine insisted that I try this tongkat ali due to the effects of the supplement on him. After persistent persuasions, I decided to buy the product and I'm glad I did. I feel stronger and I sleep better at night now. My [Redacted adult content] is also enhanced. †
I have been taking 3 pills daily for about three weeks now and I can say this product has really improved my health. I no longer feel fatigued when I wake up in the morning and my metabolism is better now. †

What is Tongkat Ali?
Tongkat Ali is a plant native to a few countries in South-East Asia including Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand. It is grown in smaller quantities in Laos, Vietnam, and India. The plant also referred to as Eurycoma longifolia, Pasak Bumi, or long jack is a tall medicinal plant traditionally used in these regions for its aphrodisiac, anti-estrogen and pro-erectile benefits. Rehman, S. U., Choe, K., & Yoo, H. H. (2016). Review on a Traditional Herbal Medicine, Eurycoma longifolia Jack (Tongkat Ali): Its Traditional Uses, Chemistry, Evidence-Based Pharmacology and Toxicology. Molecules, 10;21(3):331. doi: 10.3390/molecules21030331
Testosterone levels of men have been decreasing for decades. Anawalt, B. D., & Page, S. T. (2016). Testosterone and the brain: the power of a negative study. The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, 4(8), 632-633. doi.org/10.1016/S2213-8587(16)30142-5 And while it has been generally believed that Testosterone production naturally declines with age, research on this topic shows that the decline in testosterone with age is the result (not the consequence) of deteriorating health. Liu, Z., Liu, J., Shi, X., Wang, L., Yang, Y., & Tao, M. (2015). Dynamic alteration of serum testosterone with aging: a cross-sectional study from Shanghai, China. Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology, 13(1), 111. doi.org/10.1186/s12958-015-0107-z This research shows that age alone does not cause testosterone levels to drop and points to the fact by improving your health through the right lifestyle and nutrition, you could improve your testosterone levels.

Supports Sexual Health*
Research shows that tongkat ali may have a positive effect on erection, libido and sperm quality. *† Udani, J. K., George, A. A., Musthapa, M., Pakdaman, M. N., & Abas, A. (2014).

Increase Muscle Mass and Strength*
Testosterone has been shown to increase strength and muscle mass and reduce body fat. *† Early studies show that tongkat ali might help increase muscle mass and power output when paired with adequate exercise. *† Yusof, S.

Improve Your Mood*
Scientific studies indicate that daily supplementation with tongkat ali root extract can improve stress hormone profile and certain mood state parameters. This suggests that this “ancient” remedy may be an effective approach to shielding the body from the detrimental effects of “modern” chronic stress, including general day-to-day stress, as well as the stress of dieting, sleep deprivation, and exercise training. *† Talbott, S., Talbott, J., George, A., & Pugh, M.

Why Choose Herbolab’s Tongkat Ali?
We Are One Of the Few Companies Selling Standardized Tongkat Ali
Tongkat ali products are popular worldwide, however, the number of counterfeit tongkat ali products on the market is staggering. A 2015 study conducted in Malaysia analyzed major tongkat ali brands and discovered that a shocking 41% of products did not contain any tongkat ali at all. Norhidayah, A., Vejayan, J., & Mohamed, M. Y. (2018). Detection and Quantification of Eurycomanone Levels in Tongkat Ali Herbal Products. Journal of Applied Sciences, 15(7): 999-1005. doi: 10.3923/jas.2015.999.1005 A ratio such as 50:1, 100:1 and 200:1 can’t actually be verified, anyone can claim to have concentrated tongkat ali without offering any proof.
Luckily, tongkat ali studies have shed some light on the active components of tongkat ali. One of such components, namely Eurycomanone, has been linked to several of tongkat ali benefits. Eurycomanone can be identified and quantified by a lab technique called HPLC, opening a new era for tongkat ali products: standardized tongkat ali extract. By measuring Eurycomanone, you are guaranteed to get the real thing. Learn more about why you should only buy standardized tongkat ali.
Tongkat Ali FAQ
I often get asked about the best cycle structure. There is no such thing as the “best” because people respond differently. If you have a hard time sticking to a cycle, what I can suggest is that you adopt a cycle that can be easily fit in your schedule.
The point of the cycle is to leave regular pauses to avoid getting your body used to TA by constant intake. This pauses help “reset”. Resting 50% is just conventional usage, but you can get your own pattern. For example:
- Take Monday-Friday, rest on weekends. For every bottle finished, pause an additional week.
- Take 20 days straight, rest 10 days before starting a new bottle
- Take Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays
Whatever works for you.
The general usage of 4 capsules a day, take 2 and rest 1 day is a convention, but you can find the dosage and rest periods that works best for you with a little experimentation.
Can I take Tongkat Ali 200:1 extract with other medications such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc.?
Black, Red and Yellow Tongkat Ali are all unrelated medicinal plants that share a similar common name in some regions of Malaysia. However, the name Tongkat Ali is most commonly in reference to yellowTongkat Ali (yellow) or Eurycoma longifolia, of the family: Simaroubaceae. The other roots that share this name are:
Black Tongkat Ali = Species: Polyalthia bullata, Family: Annonaceae
Red Tongkat Ali / Akar Haji Samat = Species: Jackia (Jackiaopsis) ornata, Family: Rubaceae
Each of these herbs is used in Malaysian traditional medicine for energy and sexual dysfunction, however, only Eurycoma longifolia has a large body of supporting scientific research for its effects related to boosting testosterone and male sexual health. In this website when we mention Tongkat Ali it refers to the botanical species Eurycoma longifolia.
Tongkat ali works by 4 mechanisms:
- Stimulating the secretion of Luteinzing Hormones (LH) which in turn stimulates the Leydig cells of your testicles to produce testosterone.
- Reducing the conversion of Testosterone to Estrogen (aromatization),
- A decrease in sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG)
- Reduction in cortisol, the stress hormone that lowers testosterone
Most people taking tongkat ali are looking for effect #1, however, this won’t happen if you are injecting exogenous testosterone. As long as you are supplying Testosterone your body won’t produce any, that’s just how our body works. However, you can still benefit from effects 2, 3 and 4. It will be hard to measure any real increase in total testosterone, but you might able to observe increased free testosterone ratio, less Estrogen, and less cortisol.
If you are purchasing a tongkat ali product that is not standardized, the starting raw material can make a huge difference. For instance, the younger version of the plant does not have the same amount of active ingredients as an older plant.
One way to tell the relative quality of the tongkat ali is to do a taste test. In fact, in Malaysia, they have a monitor to help figure out if the supplement is real and pure. You can taste the powder from the capsule and judge how bitter it is. It is highly bitter when it is pure. If the mixture you are sampling is not bitter enough to give you pause, you probably have a fake or a less pure compound on your hands.
Some signs of mercury poisoning include peripheral neuropathy, shedding of skin, and a pink discoloration to the skin. If you take the tongkat ali with this heavy metal included, you may begin to notice these symptoms occurring slowly over time. For severe cases, you may need to see a physician, but usually, you can solve the problem with the cessation of the supplement.
Lead is another common problem in supplements from China, Malaysia, and Indonesia, and they discover it in many other supplements besides tongkat ali. You need to ensure that the vendor you purchase the supplement from guarantees that no heavy metals are present. Do not buy a supplement from a disreputable dealer or the cheapest available because you may end up causing yourself harm.
Some symptoms of lead poisoning include insomnia, hallucinations, tremor, and confusion. However, lead poisoning often is subtle, and sometimes you can have high levels with no symptoms. For this reason, it is vitally important to find a supplement that is verified free of heavy metals.
Since there are so many problems with the sale of tongkat ali, many government bodies have banned the sale of the supplement in their countries. The FDA has banned over 30 supplements that have claimed tongkat ali as a supplement. They discover many of these to be counterfeit or contain high amounts of heavy metals. Unfortunately, some of these companies merely changed their names and continued to sell the product unabated. It takes the FDA a long time to shut down the companies and supplements that spring up, and this is how they have been able to sidestep the bans. As with any medication, supplement, vitamin, or herb, the buyer must beware and take steps to ensure the product is safe.
Before you even consider to purchase, you should do thorough research on the company that sells the tongkat ali product. As you may know due to the popularity of the concentrated 200:1 tongkat ali there are quite a number of fakes out there. The easiest way to avoid fakes is to do some research on the seller.
You can ask yourself the following questions:
Are They a Registered Company?
There are many sellers online, but being online doesn’t mean that they don’t have the responsibility to register the business in their own country. Never buy from a business that is not registered, they can run away with your money (or worse, put your health in danger) and you will not be able to trace them.
Do They Answer Your Questions About the Product?
Related to the point before. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Where do they manufacture it? Does the health authority know about it? Proof of quality and safety test, etc.
Are They Making Any Suspicious Claims? (Works In 30 Minutes, Guaranteed To Work, Etc)
Tongkat ali is a natural product, is not a miracle cure. Fakes and scams may have something else than tongkat ali (like some cheap prescription drug). There is nothing as 100% guaranteed to work either, no natural product will work the same for everyone. If you read any suspicious claim, go ask the seller (refer to the point above).
Paying Customs Duties
There are a few countries that might have special regulations for the import of tongkat ali. If you are unsure about placing your order because possible customs issues please contact the online retailer first.
For example, Herbolab ships regularly to the United States (US), Canada, Australia, United Kingdom (UK), Malaysia, Indonesia, and many other countries without any customs issue.
Every country is different when it comes to their customs duties. You want to buy from a company who has active customer support who can field your questions and be responsive to following up on your order shipment.
Check to see that the retailer you order from will do everything they can to prevent import duties when possible. Just keep in mind that every country is different and in some cases import duties may apply.
In our experience, after thousands of shipments worldwide we have only a handful of cases were import duties apply. We ship regularly to the United States (US), Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom (UK), Malaysia, Indonesia, and many other countries without any customs duties.
There are some foods that could hamper the testosterone boosting effect of Tongkat Ali, these are garlic and soy products (in large amounts), Broccoli, cauliflower and other cabbage-derived vegetables.
Diabetics should pay extra attention as Tongkat Ali may lower the sugar level in blood. Anyone with hormone-related cancer, taking immunodepressants, with heart disease, sleep apnea or kidney disease are encouraged to talk to their doctor before taking Tongkat Ali. You should talk to your doctor if you are taking prescription medication.
ED becomes a problem when it happens consistently over time, and it’s then when men usually are concerned about it and start to seek treatments or options for improvement.
Health supplements like tongkat ali can be one of such options to improve the erection. Make sure to check this post on tongkat ali and Erectile Dysfunction.
It is important to note that tongkat ali does not “cure” ED. Is not like you can take tongkat ali and your erection problems are forever gone, there is no miracle cure like that. Tongkat ali helps increase testosterone naturally and this has many benefits, one of which is improving erection quality. Often times older guys have lower testosterone levels and this affects the erection quality when testosterone has increased the quality of the erection can be improved.
Dark color tongkat ali powder is the result of a traditional extraction method that involves air drying the tongkat ali powder. During this drying process, the powder becomes dark due to oxidation.
Our tongkat ali used to be dark color but we switched to a more modern extraction technique that doesn’t involve air drying, hence there is no oxidation and the color of our tongkat ali powder is light brown/beige. More important than the color of the powder is the fact that our tongkat ali is standardized for Eurycomanone content, hence we can guarantee potency. Dark tongkat ali powder is usually not standardized hence the company may claim 200:1 concentration but actually have no proof that is true.
When it comes to the increasing size of your penis, 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 of doing stretching exercises than taking pills.
I believe this article can help better explain everything about increasing penis size, https://herbolab.com/blog/men/natural-penis-enlargement-what-works-and-what-doesnt/
You are rightfully worried about the authenticity of tongkat ali products sold online. Due to the expensive market price for tongkat ali and the fact that the tree is becoming a depleted resource, manufacturers may intentionally substitute raw materials with cheaper materials and the product may not even contain tongkat ali at all. One method a company can ensure the authenticity of their tongkat ali powder is by providing third-party lab test results of Eurycomanone content (the active component in tongkat ali) of their tongkat ali powder.
At Herbolab we send every batch of our tongkat ali to the Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) (one of the leading institutions in tropical forestry research in the world) for evaluation of Eurycomanone content. We have these tests available to our customers so that they may request a proof of authenticity of our tongkat ali anytime by contacting us through email.
I hope this information will help you feel secure about our products.
