AKA LONGJACK...THE NAME SAYS IT ALL
If we were to personify the name of this herb, we’d probably come up with a sort of Asian superhero cat wearing a mask and boxing gloves—and honestly, this herb brings that type of masculine energy to the scene. Tongkat Ali, also known as Longjack, is a traditional Southeast Asian herbal supplement that aids in increasing testosterone in men and minimizing stress.
This herb contains alkaloids, flavonoids, and other compounds which act as antioxidants that combat cellular damage caused by free radicals. Tongkat Ali has been shown to balance stress hormones and improve certain mood state parameters, suggesting that this “ancient” remedy may be an effective approach to shielding the body from the harmful effects of modern stress, which may include general day-to-day stress, sleep deprivation, and exercise.
