Is Tongkat Ali Safe?
At Tongkat Fitness we have been using Tongkat ali extract since 2004, in this time, we have tested many variants of Tongkat ali extracts produced in all corners of the globe. Below we have listed some of the key reasons using Tongkat ali is safer than testosterone replacement theropies and also some important safety factors to take into account when purchasing Tongkat ali extracts.
Tongkat ali extract encourages your body to produce testosterone naturally, so your body does not shut down production like it would if you were introducing an external source of testosterone such as patches, injections, or oral steroids.
No Gyno (Gynecomastia)
Tongkat ali extract contains a number of active quassinoids that have a positive effect on testosterone production and the hormonal balance, one of those being Triacetyleurycomanone, acting as a mild aromatase inhibitor, Triacetyleurycomanone reduces the chance of Gynecomastia occurring.
(SAFETY NOTE 1) Ideally, use a standardized extract no stronger than 2.8% Eurycomanone to ensure the Triacetyl-eurycomanone content is at the correct ratio to be effective against gyno.
(SAFETY NOTE 2) When stopping using Tongkat Ali extract, it is highly recommended that you slowly lower the dosage, increasing the time between taking the capsules, allowing your testosterone level to decrease gradually.
No PCT Required
If you are using Tongkat ali as directed in our dosage guide, no Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) is required, your testicles will be naturally producing testosterone, and your hormonal balance will be stable.
Buy Safe Tongkat Ali Extract
Although we have established that Tongkat ali is a safe, natural testosterone booster, Tongkat ali is grown in Southeast Asia, because of this, there are three small considerations needed when buying Tongkat ali.
(1) PRODUCTION LOCATION Look for an extract produced in Europe or the U.S. where safety standards are strict, and production quality is very high.
You will find many companies retail Tongkat ali produced in Indonesia, Malasia, or remote parts of Southeast Asia, where the local water is not fit to drink. In many cases, the same undrinkable water will be used in Tonglat ali extract production and the cleaning of machinery used, because of this, the quality of the extracts coming from these regions are often substandard.
(2) CERTIFICATION Following on from reason one above, we recommend using a Tongkat ali extract with a full ISO 17025 certificate of analysis that includes Heavy Metals (As, Pb, Cd, Hg), Microbial testing for E.coli, Enteros, Y&M, Bacillus, Salmonella.
We deal with European testing authorities, SGS, and Intertek, who advise us that safety analysis certificates from regions of the world where "bribery is just how things get done" are not to be trusted.
(3) STANDARDIZATION With standardization, you receive a consistent strength allowing you to manage your dosage from batch to batch, year after year with no unexpected spikes in strength.
