What is Tongkat Ali?

Tongkat Ali, also known as longjack, is a herbal supplement that comes from the roots of the green shrub tree Eurycoma longifolia in Southeast Asia. This herb with anti-inflammatory, antimalarial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties has been used as a potent natural remedy for centuries. It’s most well-known use though is as a powerful treatment for male infertility, erectile dysfunction and low libido, as well as an effective way to naturally increase muscle mass and relieve stress.

Tongkat Ali is an adaptogen, meaning that it helps the body adapt to different kinds of stress, including physical, chemical, and biological stress. Its common phytochemical components include alkaloids, flavonoids, phenolics, saponins, tannins, and triterpenes. The plant is rich in various quassinoids including eurycolactone, eurycomalactone, eurycomanol, eurycomanone, and eurycomaoside all of which have been reported to contribute to its remedial properties including increased muscle strength, endurance, and reduced anxiety and stress.

Wilaya Supreme Energy contains 250mg of Tongkat Ali per capsule which is an acceptable daily dose for most men. The Tongkat Ali extract used in Wilaya Supreme Energy is lab tested to ensure it’s healthy for use by everyone. That said, pregnant women and breastfeeding women should not take Tongkat Ali.

Controlled studies have concluded that Tongkat Ali increases testosterone levels by an average of 37%. This explains why it is effective in increasing muscle mass and libido. The same study concluded that Tongkat Ali reduces cortisol by an average of 16% and observed marked reductions in tension, anger, confusion, and overall stress levels.

It is these two hormonal impacts that are responsible for the impressive results it is renowned for. Over the next few weeks we will be rolling out a series of blogs discussing its benefits in depth according to medical research with respect to male fertility/ reproductive support, muscular strength, and stress relief.
