Tongat Ali For Male Sexual Enhancement
Tongat Ali is an herbal supplement that is used as a sexual stimulant. Never heard of it? Don't feel bad you are in good company; it is still not widely known about.
Tongat Ali, like yohimbine is a plant based sexual stimulant and like the Yohimbe plant the Tongat Ali is becoming hard to find especially since it is now protected from harvest by law in Malaysia which is the original source of the Tongat Ali extract. The extract when taken in an optimum dosage greatly increases levels of free testosterone and enhances libido and sexual function far better than the aforementioned yohimbine.
Even though the Tongat Ali plant is protected in Malaysia herbal suppliers there have been aggressively marketing the product in the United States using scientific studies that boast of the testosterone enhancing properties of the product. Due to the increased demand and decreasing availability of the plant prices have skyrocketed and counterfeits have begun to appear and like yohimbe most of the Tongat Ali found on the market now are basically worthless with nowhere near the amount of active ingredient needed to be effective therefore if you want to be sure you are indeed getting a pure source have it shipped directly to you from Indonesia.
Customarily, Tongkat Ali has been a botanical found throughout Southeast Asia where In Vietnam it is regarded a cure for everything. In the sex-crazy country of Thailand, it has been used by men as a virility tonic for centuries. And in Malaysia, it has been harvested heavily primarily to be sold in the United States (apart from being used at home).
But Tongkat Ali, just like Yohimbe is a slow-growing shrub, and besides that, the active ingredient is found for the most part in the root. The root, which grows deep into poor hard soil, is very difficult to extract. Large holes must be dug to extract them and therefore in Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, they have now started using the stems and branches of the shrub, instead of relying on the root. Just as there is nearly no yohimbine in the barks of pausinystalia species other than pausinystalia yohimbe, there are almost no active ingredients in tongkat ali stem and branches (the active ingredients are part of the root).
Fact is that almost all the Tongkat Ali that is brought into the U.S. is under dosed at a factor of up to 1000. For example, capsules may contain 50 milligram of root powder, when the therapeutic dosage would be the extract of 50 gram (50,000 milligram).
But on the northern tip of Sumatra (Aceh province of Indonesia) where the Tsunami occurred there still exist forests with a large areas of Tongkat Ali coverage. Tongkat ali from the Indonesia Aceh province can be purchased in wholesale and retail quantities from Sumatra Pasak Bumi.
