Our Tongkat Ali is based on traditional remedies; alongside the raw and natural content of our capsules, it is also backed by scientific research from today’s society. Thus, providing you only the purest form of Tongkat Ali.
Where does our Tongkat Ali come from?
Our Tongkat Ali comes from deep within the rainforests of Malaysia. The indigenous people of the jungle (natives) have been harvesting Tongkat Ali for decades. They are known as the Orang Aslis residing in the rainforests and relying on the daily harvest of the jungle. They are the natural protectors of Malaysia’s deep jungles. Being the natural caretakers of the world, the Malaysian Government have licensed them to be the only ones to harvest the Tongkat Ali.
CaliGold health ensures the sustainable practises by only working with the company that is involved with the indigenous tribe, who treat the rainforest as their beloved sanctuary since the beginning of time. In a nut shell the Eurycomanone in the Tongkat Ali are affective in increasing Testosterone levels, strength, leaner muscle mass, vitality and sexual desires.
Why have many companies have increased levels of Eurycomanone present in Tongkat Ali.
Many factors affect the Eurycomanone levels in Tongkat Ali such as soil, geography, altitude, moisture and temperature. However, one thing remains constant the Eurycomanone for various parts of the jungle in Malaysia does not exceed 2%. Furthermore, when companies label their products 2% or above, one must be wary and consider the fact that it may be adulterated for eg. Many products may have Viagra/ Sildenafil and Tadafil / Cialis which are all prescription drugs that are used to spike Tongkat Ali, thus providing unnatural results in terms of Libido benefits. Therefore CaliGold Health only sources and provides the maximum dosages of Eurycomanone that is available from Malaysia. This will naturally help our customers without fake results. Our Eurycomanone does not exceed 1.8%. Please see the bar graph below for all the areas in Malaysia that the Tongkat Ali is sourced from.
Each part of Tongkat Ali contains different levels of Eurycomanone, but the root is the only part that contains Eurycomanone while other parts of the plant may also contain small traces of it. Other compounds contained in Tongkat Ali are Quassinoids and Alkaloids.
Companies claiming extract ratios
Numerous supplement companies claim extract ratios from 1:20 to 1:300 without any information on this methodology or purity. (For eg. Ethanol vs Water). Basically, Tongkat Ali extracts that don’t taste bitter are either not true or are fake extracts. CaliGold Health does not believe in using ratio analysis as ours is pure and in its original form. Unfortunately, those claiming to have Tongkat Ali extraction ratios 100:1 and even 200:1 are false and only propagated by marketing people, not scientists / phytochemists.

Side effects of Tongkat Ali.
Every person’s body chemistry varies. The common side effects that some may experience are dizziness / headaches after consuming. Whilst others may experience an upset stomach. Luckily, these last for a short while which eventually will go away. The reason for this is quite normal as Tongkat Ali is quite a strong herb and your body will adapt to taking this herb and adjust accordingly. This is why it is always recommended to take a smaller dosage to get your body used to Tongkat Ali and within a week or two, some side effects will disappear. Also, some have reported a stronger odour for their urine and some experienced slight heat flushes. This is normal as well therefore we do recommend you take more water whilst taking Tongkat Ali.
What is the dosage i should take?
For Male, the dosage would be 1-2 capsules every day. The more active the higher the dosage.
For Females, the dosage would be no more than 4 capsules a week, as female hormones work differently in terms of testosterone in the body. If you are very active the results come within weeks. However, if you are not as active it may take up to a month to feel energised.
Can women also benefit from Tongkat Ali?
Everyone believes that women taking testosterone would lead to looking manly such as increase in adam’s apple size, deeper voice, becoming muscular or reversing their hormonal levels. This is all false.
Men and Women have testosterones and Estrogen levels. Men have higher testosterone levels whereas, women have higher Estrogen levels so in terms of women having a low testosterone level leads them to being easily tired; having low energy levels; having weak muscles and low sexual drive. Therefore, women should take 3-4 capsules of Tongkat Ali a week to maintain their certain levels of healthy testosterone in their body which will ultimately keep them active, youthful, strong and maintain a high sex drive.
