Tongkat ali Longjack and aka Eurycoma Longifolia is a natural testosterone booster that has great benefits and has some research behind it to prove it. Here are some things to know about Tongkat Ali.
Eurycoma Longifolia Jack is the herb name for what is more commonly known as Tongkat Ali, Malaysian Ginseng, or Longjack.
The aphrodisiac effects of Eurycoma are quite reliable and appear to span a large variety of animal models, limited evidence in female rats but it appears to affect these to a similar extend as in males. It is difficult to do a comparative analysis between other herbal aphrodisiac to assess potency, but Eurycoma is anecdotally one of the better ones.
In addition to the aphrodisiac effects, Eurycoma can also increase sperm production and may directly act as a proerectile agent. At least one molecule in Eurycoma (9-hydroxycanthin-6-one) is associated with both a delay in ejaculation as well as pro-erectile properties (although the ability of this molecule to act via consuming Eurycoma extract is not known).
Hormonally, Eurycoma appears to have remarkable anti-estrogenic effects in vitro and has a potency similar to Tamoxifen when the active ingredient is injected. Promising, but no human studies exist on it currently or studies assessing oral intake of Eurycoma Extract. On the testosterone side of things, the literature appears to be needlessly promising. No peer-reviewed evidence currently establishes Eurycoma as a testosterone booster in otherwise healthy persons or rats but many studies are quick to cite presentations by an M.I Tambi claiming these boosts in testosterone. None of Dr.Tambi’s research presented in conferences appears to be indexed in Medline and the claims expressed cannot be proven.
The standard dosage of eurycoma longifolia jack is 200-300mg of a 100:1 extract (the concentration is based on the eurycomamone content), which at least in regards to eurycomamone is as effective as 20-30g of the dry root of the plant.
This dose tends to be taken in 1-2 doses throughout the day, and it is unsure if this is the optimal dose.
Eurycoma Longifolia Jack is also commonly referred to as Tongkat Ali, Longjack, or Malaysian Ginseng (although not belonging to the same plant family as Panax Ginseng). Eurycoma Longifolia belongs to the plant family of Simaroubaceae with Eurycoma being the family. Four plants belong in this family; Apiculata, Harmandiana, latifolia, and Longifolia where only the last species is used medicinally.
Other names given to the Eurycoma Longifolia plant are Tung Sawa(Thailand), Pasak Bumi(Indonesian), Cay Ba Binh(Vietnamese), and Langir Siam(Bahrain). Bioactives may vary depending on the location the herb is grown, indicating that standardization would be prudent.

The root of tongkat ali has been used to increase testosterone levels for a very long time indeed. It contains chemical compounds that studies have repeatedly shown can increase testosterone levels. An increase in testosterone has many beneficial knock-on effects for sexual performance, muscle growth and semen production.
A Malaysian study published in 2012 took 76 men of whom only 35% had testosterone levels in the normal range. Following a month of treatment with Tongkat ali, this number rose dramatically to above 90%. (1)
