What Is Eurycomanone Standardized Tongkat Ali Root Extract?
There are two forms of tongkat ali root extract available on the market today, traditional and standardized, traditional extract is strength rated by the amount of root used to produce a single gram of extract, this method of production is highly inefficient, allowing for a large margin of error in actual finished extract strength. This is because the active ingredients in a tongkat ali root extract will vary depending on the age and quality of the root used to produce the extract, rather than simply the amount of root used.
An example of this would be as follows: If two separate batches of tongkat ali root extract were produced each using 50 grams of root to produce 1 gram of finished extract (1:50), the first batch using eurycomanone rich root while the second used roots with a low eurycomanone content, the two finished extracts would be completely different in strength, although each batch used 50 grams of root per 1 gram of finished extract.
How Is Standardized Tongkat Ali Root Extract Produced?
Standardized tongkat Ali root extract is produced in much the same way as traditional tongkat ali root extract, but rather than basing the strength rating on the amount of root used regardless of quality, we engage FRIM (Forest Research Institute of Malaysia) as Thrid Party Verification, who use analytic equipment in the form of ultra-high-pressure liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry to monitor the levels of several key active ingredients, primarily the eurycomanone content of the extract.
What Are The Benefits Of Standardized Extract?
Besides the obvious benefits of safety and quality through consistency, using analytic equipment to produce plant extracts stops the unnecessary waste of raw materials by adjusting the formula at a granular level. Additionally this method of production helps to reduce fraudulent activity in the supply chain, as the process is completely verifiable from start to finish.
Does Tongkat Ali really work?
Tongkat Ali works on several mechanisms involved with hormonal function and Intimacy performance. In other words, Tongkat Ali minimish ageing on the men reproductive system by increasing body’s free testosterone bio-availability.
- Stimulating the Leydig cells of your testicles to produce testosterone.
- Reducing the conversion of Testosterone to Estrogen

- Reduce stress hormone
Estrogen levels of the average 54-year-old man are often higher than those of the average 59-year-old woman. Too much estrogen contributes to a wide range of health, weight gain and libido problems. High serum levels of estrogen also trick the brain into thinking that enough testosterone is being produced, thereby slowing the natural production of testosterone. Results of studies have confirmed Tongkat Ali may be of assistance in the following areas:
- Create free testosterone level
