What You Should Know
Eurycoma Longifolia is sold as a testosterone building supplement. Also called Tongkat Ali and Pasak Bumi, the supplement is most often found in herbal erectile dysfunction supplements. There is evidence that Eurycoma Longifolia increases sperm counts in rats, but it is a study completed at the University of Malaysia that may link the supplement to the fitness and weight loss community. According to that study, Eurycoma Longifolia is more effective at increasing muscle strength when compared to the results of a placebo.

Testosterone supplementation requires a medical prescription from a doctor. Eurycoma Longifolia claims to naturally increase testosterone and thus affect muscle growth and size. Bodybuilders commonly take the supplement during intense periods of weight lifting. The product is not taken as a standalone supplement, in most cases. Traditionally, it is used as an ingredient in bodybuilding supplements.
There have been problems in the past with Internet vendors selling fake Eurycoma Longifolia or tongkat ali. Experts suggest contacting the seller before placing a purchase for more information on the facility where the supplement was created or manufactured.
Tongkat ali includes the active ingredient Eurycoma Longifolia Jack. Supposedly, Eurycoma Longifolia Jack works within the body to reset testosterone maximum levels. When the body would normally stop producing testosterone, called the natural peak, muscle building is also stopped. Eurycoma Longifolia Jack allows testosterone levels to reach beyond peak. Supplements with Eurycoma Longifolia sell for as little as $10.00 per bottle.

Eurycoma Longifolia is not your typical weight loss product. While websites selling the supplement do not market Eurycoma Longifolia for men only, it has been shown to affect sexuality, arousal, and sperm levels. Increasing testosterone levels in women can have negative side effects on reproduction and menstrual cycle. When a supplement is not intended for every dieter, we tend to suggest dieters turn to a different product.
Effective weight loss supplements will also offer testimonials supporting weight loss and muscle building effects. Due to the fact that Eurycoma Longifolia is typically added to supplements with many other ingredients, there are no testimonials on the effects of Eurycoma Longifolia taken alone that promote the claims of increase muscle. Most reviews are from men who support Eurycoma Longifolia as an herbal arousal stimulant.
