“Tongkat ali” – does it work for men?

Eurycoma longifolia is a flowering plant native to some parts of Asia – it’s commonly known as tongkat ali.

People across many parts of Asia use tongkat ali as an herbal medicine.

Some of its purported benefits include increasing testosterone, treating ED, and boosting libido.

Human research shows that it can be very effective in improving many aspects of male sexual performance.

The researchers did this human trial at Northridge Hospital Integrative Medicine Program, California. The Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine published the findings.

26 men completed a 12 week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

One group of 12 participants received a tongkat ali supplement.

In the other group, 14 men received a similar-looking placebo supplement.

The tongkat ali supplement consisted of 300 mg of freeze-dried tongkat ali extract and herbal antioxidant.

“Physta is a proprietary product containing a freeze-dried water extract of Eurycoma longifolia (tongkat ali), which is traditionally used as an energy enhancer and aphrodisiac.”

The men in the study were between 40 and 65 years old.

They completed detailed questionnaires about their sexual life before and after the 12-week study.

“We evaluated erectile function, satisfaction with intervention, sexual intercourse performance, erectile hardness, mood, and overall quality of life.”

The study found that supplementation improved most aspects of sexual performance at six weeks.

The improvements were greater again at 12 weeks.

They didn’t see similar improvements in the placebo group.

“Significant improvements were noted in scores for the Sexual Intercourse Attempt diary, Erection Hardness Scale, Sexual Health Inventory of Men, and Aging Male Symptom scale.”

Those questionnaires cover almost every aspect of male sexual performance.

Sexual drive was increased, as was performance.

“Our study demonstrates significantly improved subjective libido scores as well as improved sexual performance when compared to placebo.”

Testosterone levels went up in both groups, but it went up more in men taking tongkat ali.

The study also found that waist size went down at six weeks in men taking the supplement.

Waist circumference was smaller again at the end of the study.

“The waist measurements in the active group was significantly lower than those of the placebo group at week six and week 12.”

The study also included basic safety testing because plant materials can often be damaging to the liver and kidneys.

But the lab results could not find any changes in liver or kidney function in men taking tongkat ali.

“Laboratory evaluations, including liver and kidney function testing, showed no clinically significant abnormality.”

Seven men dropped out over the course of the study – but none of those dropouts were determined to be caused by the supplement.

“Three adverse events were reported in the active group and four in the placebo group, none of which were attributed to [the] study product.”

There has been some concern over the safety of tongkat ali supplements in recent years, particularly in the US.

But these scares are the result of adulterants in products marketed as tongkat ali… They’re not because of tongkat ali itself.

As with any supplement, you should take care to find a high-quality product.

While the Food and Drug Administration has banned a number of dietary supplements that claim to include tongkat ali, the herb itself has been passed as “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS).

But they banned these products because of other ingredients.

The study found tongkat ali effective at improving male sexual performance.

“Tongkat Ali was well tolerated and more effective than placebo in enhancing sexual performance in healthy volunteers.”

You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about treating and diagnosing health-related problems.

You can’t get great erections until you clean out your liver

It sounds weird, but it’s true.

As we age, our livers get clogged up with fatty deposits and various toxins.

And this messes with our liver’s ability to produce testosterone.

And you probably know that low testosterone can make getting an erection very difficult if not impossible…

So if you want good, high testosterone and great, long-lasting erections, you need to clean out your liver.

And I’ve developed a powerful natural liver cleanse protocol just for men that does just that.

I call it the CT Cleanse… And you can have it today for free.
