Tongkat Ali (Tonic Herb)
What are the Health Benefits of Tongkat Ali Regarding
Testosterone Levels, Sex Drive, and Muscle Growth?
Tongkat Ali may sound a little funny to say but, do not let the name fool you. This little herb packs quite the punch when regarding its positive effects on a male’s libido and hormone secretion. After the age of 27, the male body begins to change. There is a shift in the production of testosterone. Testosterone is the main sex hormone found in men. It is the most prominent of all their hormones and its decline manifests in an array of afflictions that chisel away at a happy life. To name a few, and most common:
- Reduction in the desire for sex.
- The decline in sexual performance.
- Lack of energy.
- An increase in body fat.
- The decrease in muscle mass.
- Mental lethargy.
Testosterone replacement therapy is definitely an excellent choice for qualifying men suffering from a diagnosed hypogonadal issue. Men should, however, always try to naturally increase their own body’s production of testosterone before introducing the hormone exogenously.

In 2012, a study was conducted in Malaysia where seventy-six men were supplied Tongkat Ali for a full month. Out of these men, 35% of them did not have testosterone level issues. After only a month, the same group of men, which now consisted of 90% of them having normal testosterone levels, expressed the palpable betterment that they had been experiencing overall since beginning supplementation. 
In addition to that test, a double-blind, placebo-controlled test noted that men that supplemented with Tongkat Ali every day experienced improvements in libido, semen volume, and erectile function.
