What Is Tongkat Ali used For

Tongkat ali is commonly used in plant extract form, taken in capsules as a health supplement or added to food and beverages to boost natural testosterone production. In extract form Tongkat ali has gained notoriety as a safe, powerful testosterone booster used to alleviate the symptoms of low testosterone in men, and also for those looking to push their testosterone levels to the maximum for building muscle and decreasing body fat.

Why Is Tongkat Ali Better Than Other T-Boosters

Tongkat ali stimulates natural testosterone production rather than introducing testosterone to the body through injections or patches. By encouraging the body to produce testosterone naturally, you avoid the side effect known as "shut-down" that can cause an hormonal imbalance to occur.

Tongkat Ali Vs Tongkat Ali Extract

If you're new to Tongkat ali, you are probably wondering what the extract version is, and why it is more popular than chipped root.

Tongkat ali root extract is a fine water-soluble powder that contains a concentrated amount of the active testosterone boosting ingredients found within the roots of the plant.

Tongkat ali extract is more popular than chipped root because it comes in capsule form at a consistent strength, making it easy to use and safer. In contrast, chipped root requires a time-consuming mix of boiling water and chipped root, stewing over a long period to achieve a brew of undetermined strength.

What Does Tongkat Ali Extract Look Like

Tongkat ali root extract is a fine water-soluble powder that contains the active quassinoids found within the roots of the plant. Tongkat ali extract can vary in color from light sandy brown to a dark reddish-brown depending on the roots selected for use, and the production methods used during the extraction process .

Standardized Tongkat ali extract tends to be lighter brown as it has fewer impurities, a well-produced traditional extract will often have a slightly darker tan color sometimes with a reddish tint. In some cases you may come across dark brown extracts, these have been overheated in the drying phase, if this is the case the extract will have a charcoal smell and characteristics.
