Eurycoma Longifolia Jack/Tongkat Ali Boost Testosterone at the Source

Tongkat Ali has been used for centuries as an aphrodisiac in Indonesia and Malaysia. This plant is also known as Malaysian ginseng. The mechanism of it's testosterone boost appears to be by stimulating the Leydig cells in the testes. Leydig cells convert cholesterol in to testosterone.

In addition, to boosting testosterone, tongkat ali may free up testosterone from SHBG for greater uptake by muscle tissue.

Products that a 20:1 extract appear to work the best. LJ100 found in Source Naturals Tongkat Ali and in Now Foods Testojack is a 100:1 extract.

Take 200-300mg two or three times per day.
