Tongkat Ali Dosage

In this section, you will find our simplified guide to Tongkat ali dosage. We have formulated this guide from our own first-hand experience using Tongkat ali extract over several years.

Tongkat Ali Dosage Overview

Firstly, we have separated Tongkat ali usage into three different cycles: Increasing, Maintaining, and Lowering. Using Tongkat ali extract in this way will help you to manage your testosterone levels and get the most from your Tongkat ali purchase.

Increasing Cycle

To increase your testosterone level with TKA1:200 Tongkat ali extract, we advise taking the full manufactures recommended dosage [R] of three capsules per day as follows:

  • One 400mg capsule first thing in the morning
  • A second 400mg capsule in the middle of your day
  • And a third 400mg capsule last thing at night

Tongkat ali should be taken in this dosage until you feel that your testosterone has reached the desired level.

Bodybuilding Usage

If you are using Tongkat ali for bodybuilding, wait until you can feel the testosterone boost positively affecting your workouts and then move to one of the maintaining cycles listed below.

Low Testosterone Usage

When using Tongkat ali for low testosterone, it is best to start with the increasing cycle until you feel your symptoms subsiding, keep using the increasing cycle for another four days and then move to one of the maintaining cycles listed below.

Maintaining Cycle

We have illustrated two methods of maintaining a high testosterone level with TKA1:200 Tongkat ali extract; you will have to experiment and find which method works best for you.

Method 1: Take one capsule first thing in the morning and a second capsule last thing at night. Take your Tongkat ali like this for five days in a row, with two days off.

Method 2: Use one capsule per day taken last thing at night, with one day off every four days.

It is best to experiment with the above methods to find which one works best for you. The maintaining methods shown above can be used indefinitely, but we recommend having a complete two-week rest from Tongkat ali at least every fourteen weeks.

Lowering Cycle

If you wish to reduce your dosage or stop using Tongkat ali altogether, it is best to taper down the number of capsules you are using, rather than just cutting off the Tongkat ali usage overnight.

If you have been taking the three capsules per day as per the Increasing Cycle, drop to the Maintaining Cycle method for five days, followed by maintaining cycle Method 2 for three days and then move to the lowering cycle illustrated below.

From taking one capsule daily as per the maintaining cycle Method 2, lower down to one capsule taken on alternating days for five days running, take a break of three days and then take one capsule midday on alternate days for another three days.

Tongkat Ali Dosage Long-term

We are often asked, "how long can I stay on Tongkat ali extract?", this depends on what you are using your Tongkat ali for, and how you are using it.

If you were suffering low testosterone levels and corrected this using Tongkat ali extract, you can use Tongkat ali indefinitely by using the maintaining cycles as illustrated above.

When using the maintaining cycle correctly, your body should be producing a healthy level of testosterone naturally, and side effects should be non-existent.

If you are using Tongkat ali extract at higher dosages for bodybuilding, then you will need to take a rest period of at least four weeks every twelve weeks of usage.
