Tongkat Ali an Aphrodisiac

tongkat ali aphrodisiac

Eurycoma longifolia (aka, long jack or Tongkat Ali or Pasak Bumi) is a flowering plant in the family Simaroubaceae, native to Indonesia and Malaysia. It is a small evergreen tree growing to 15 m (49 ft) tall, with spirally arranged, pinnate leaves 20-40 cm (8-16 inches) long with 13-41 leaflets. The flowers are dioecious, with male and female flowers on different trees; they are produced in large panicles, each flower with 5-6 very small petals. The fruit is green ripening dark red, 1-2 cm long and 0.5-1 cm broad.

It is traditionally used for the treatment of malaria, high blood pressure, diarrhea, boils, ulcer, tuberculosis, jaundice, dysentery, fever and loss of sexual desire. However, the plant is a traditional secret of Malays as a booster for strength, stamina and possibly immunity. The first documentation on tongkat ali was done in 1939 in the Dictionary of Malaysian Medicine. It is the roots of at least a 7-year old plant that is harvested. It is said that tongkat ali is five times more potent than ginseng.

Tongkat Ali was dubbed the "Asian Viagra" in a May 1999 report in the New Sunday Times.

Scientific studies suggest that tongkat ali appears to work by increasing levels of the hormone testosterone. The “British Journal of Sports Medicine” published the results of a scientific study in 2003, which showed that Eurycoma longifolia caused increased muscle strength and size because of its “testosterone-boosting” properties. Because of this, some athletes and body builders now use Tongkat Ali extract in the hope that it will act as a testosterone-booster, to improve muscle size, strength, and performance without drugs. Tongkat ali is also studied for its action against lung and breast cancer as well as anti-malarial activity (the original traditional use). This could be attributed to the presence of phytochemicals called quassinoids and diterpenoids. It also contains an anti-oxidant called super-oxide dismutase.

Tongkat ali is now a very popular natural product for increasing libido, enhancing orgasm, voluntary control of sexual performance, enhanced energy and stamina; providing the natural solution to erectile dysfunction in a gradual and safe manner. Animal studies have shown that tongkat ali produces androgenic (male hormone property) effects similar to testosterone treated animals. It can also produce arousal, libido and sexual motivation in sluggish, old rats. Tongkat ali appears to stimulate the availability of endogenous testosterone (natural testosterone content of the body).

Tongkat ali is the natural supplement that has the property to effect a complete improvement in testosterone level. This improvement in testosterone is reported to be achieved in two weeks of intake; bringing back the normal level that has declined with age. (Normal testosterone levels maintain energy level, mood, fertility, and sexual desire.) These imply that tongkat ali acts naturally in the body and achieves a level of testosterone needed for a successful male sexual performance. For the men who are infertile due to problems with the quality of their sperm, Tongkat ali can raise the amount of available testosterone that will help in improve the morphology, activity (motility) and count of sperms.

  3. Attraction Explained: Your Social Circle

    Our social circle is one of the biggest determining factors in who we meet. Going back a bit, in a 1956 study 70% of married American couples lived within 20 blocks of each other before marriage. Now admittedly that was 1956 and this is now, but the basic principle holds true - you're more likely to find success with someone closer to you than you are someone further way.

    So, how do we use this to improve our chances? Simple - we expand our social circle!

    1) Network, Network, Network
    2) Organise a night out, invite all your friends, tell them to bring friends
    3) Join a club. A sports club, a movie club, a dinner club, a sex club - whatever you fancy!
    4) Don’t try and jump into an encounter or relationship with every attractive person you meet.
    5) Put people in contact with each other.
