By now, you’re probably no stranger to Tongkat Ali, one of the main ingredients of Male UltraCore. The popular Asian ingredient has been well-known since the 90s when traditional medicine experts started calling Tongkat Ali the Asian Viagra as a reference to the ingredient’s unique ability to increase libido and erection quality.
Tongkat Ali is now one of the most prolific supplement ingredients in the world, with dozens of scientific research and clinical trials about the famed ingredient, published in scientific journals around the world.
Quality and potency are two of the most important factors that affect the effectiveness of Tongkat Ali, and the highest grade purity of Tongkat Ali is one of the most expensive ingredients in the market, which is why only the most premium supplements feature a standardized Tongkat Ali extract, with 30% 9-hydroxycanthin-6-one, it’s most active phytochemical. Many supplements that claim to contain Tongkat Ali in their formula are likely to have only dehydrated leaves that may not produce the same results as described in the studies.
In this article, we’ll show you how Male UltraCore was able to maximize the potential of Tongkat Ali in increasing testosterone and performance.
What is Tongkat Ali?
Tongkat Ali, also known as Longjack and Eurycoma longifolia jack, is an herb native to Indochina, which is where it is almost exclusively grown. The herb has been used for centuries as a key part of traditional Chinese medicine as a cure for impotence and infertility. By the 90s, the herb gained notoriety, in part due to the popularity of the erectile dysfunction medication, Viagra, as many were looking for alternative erectogenics to take in place of the much more expensive drug.
Because of its popularity, it was frequently referenced by new so-called sexual enhancement products in the late 90s to the early 2000s as the ingredient that could improve erection quality. The name and quality of the herb were adulterated to a point that the FDA had to crack down on products and supplements that claimed to have Tongkat Ali but instead contained analogs of prescription drugs to trick their customers into buying their product.
Since then, it became one of the most in-demand ingredients in the supplement market, but the popularity of Tongkat Ali took a hit when consumers started doubting the effectiveness of penis enlargement pills and libido boosters.
Over the last decade, there has been a resurgence of the demand for Tongkat Ali. New research and new studies discover the true potential of the supplement, and more supplements are vying to get the herb into their formulas, but many of these brands failed to truly maximize the potential of Tongkat Ali.
Male UltraCore is equipped with the highest potency rating of Tongkat Ali (Longjack), with a standardized extract of 30% 9-hydroxycanthin-6-one, its most active component. The formula also contains a hefty 550mg daily dose of Tongkat Ali, which is one of the highest in the market.
How does Tongkat Ali work?
While Male UltraCore was in development, we discovered that there is more to Tongkat Ali than what most supplements use it for. The early application of Tongkat Ali was only supposed to increase testosterone production, which on its own has a direct impact on your energy, muscle performance, and libido. However, its real benefit is revealed in higher concentrations of the product. Research referencing the standardized extracts of Tongkat Ali revealed that the ingredient is also capable of acting as an anti-aromatase agent, a cortisol inhibitor, and as a free testosterone booster.
Increased testosterone production
Tongkat Ali works by initially boosting the stimulation of the Leydig cells to increase testosterone production. This is the most basic benefit of taking Tongkat Ali, which even low-grade powders of Tongkat Ali can marginally increase testosterone levels by stimulating the Leydig cells. This effect, however, is maximized in standardized Tongkat Ali extracts, where it can boost testosterone production by as much as 50-70% compared to low-grade Tongkat Ali powders.
The ingredient builds on its ability to boost testosterone production by preventing other factors that reduce testosterone production. Tongkat Ali inhibits cortisol, the stress hormone, and this directly impacts testosterone production. Cortisol buildup causes the body to slow down its production of testosterone, and it shifts the body from a muscle-building (anabolic) to a muscle breakdown (anabolic) state. By lowering cortisol levels, Tongkat Ali effectively enhances testosterone production, and it helps build muscle mass in the process.
With increased testosterone levels, the next challenge in increasing testosterone levels is to preserve testosterone and prevent its metabolites from building up. Much of the side effects related to testosterone aren’t directly linked to testosterone, but its metabolites. The body converts a portion of its total testosterone to hormones, such as estrogen and dihydrotestosterone.
An increase in dihydrotestosterone (DHT) causes benign prostatic hyperplasia (prostate enlargement), and it can also increase your risk of prostate cancer. Other side effects of DHT are hair loss and acne. Although DHT is an androgen that can help increase libido and muscle growth, its overall impact on the body makes it something that you definitely want to avoid. Tongkat Ali inhibits the aromatase enzyme to stop the conversion of testosterone to DHT, effectively preventing its side effects, while preserving optimal testosterone levels.
Increased free testosterone levels
Lastly, Tongkat Ali helps increase free testosterone levels by binding to the proteins such as albumin and the sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). Typically, testosterone binds to proteins, but this makes them unable to bind to certain androgen receptors. Free, unbound testosterone is the bioavailable type of testosterone, which makes them impact a man’s physical and sexual health more efficiently.
Is Tongkat Ali Enough to Boost your Testosterone Levels?
Tongkat Ali is one of the most versatile testosterone-boosting ingredients you can find in the market today, and on its own, it’s highly capable of boosting testosterone levels. However, the results you get may not be up to par with what you would expect from a real performance-enhancing supplement. If you want the best results, you’d want a supplement that produces results that you can see and feel, and Tongkat Ali may not be enough to produce such results.
That’s why at Male UltraCore, we worked for years to develop a formula that would maximize the impact of Tongkat Ali in the body. We combined Tongkat Ali with other powerful ingredients and standardized extracts, to work synergistically and maximize the potential of each ingredient. In Male UltraCore, not only Tongkat Ali’s potential is magnified, but all of the ingredients in the formula.
How can you boost the impact of Tongkat Ali?
The most important factor that affects the effectiveness of Tongkat Ali is its potency. Dried leaves and powdered aerial parts of the plant will not have enough of its active compounds to produce any decent result. Through the process of extraction and compound isolation, Male UltraCore can isolate the active components of Tongkat Ali, including the phytochemical 9-hydroxycanthin-6-one, to maximize the potency and effectiveness of Tongkat Ali.
9-Hydroxycanthin-6-one is a potent phytochemical that is responsible for most of Tongkat Ali’s physical and sexual performance-enhancing properties. Its most powerful contribution to the formula is its ability to potentiate erections, and it can also help delay ejaculations, giving men the ability to have full control over their sexual performance.
Standardizing Tongkat Ali to 30% 9-hydroxycanthin-6-one is the key factor that makes Male UltraCore’s Longjack more effective than your garden-variety Tongkat Ali, and its combination with other ingredients makes it more effective than ever. Male Ultracore contains 550mg of standardized Longjack, which is more than double the dosage used in the studies that support the ingredient’s effectiveness in increasing testosterone and performance.
How does Male UltraCore maximize the benefits of Tongkat Ali?
We developed Male Ultracore to have Tongkat Ali as the core ingredient as it does everything we could ever want in a testosterone booster. It’s the focal ingredient in our S.T.E.M. formula, which targets certain performance factors to produce an amplified result. We boosted the effectiveness of Tongkat Ali by pairing it with ingredients that are clinically proven to increase testosterone in the same method or pathway as Tongkat Ali.
All of Male UltraCore’s core ingredients, such as ZMA, Ashwagandha, and Fenugreek, all work synergistically with Tongkat Ali to produce astronomical results.
ZMA is a mineral performance blend of Zinc and Magnesium Aspartate and is commonly seen as a standalone supplement used by athletes and bodybuilders to support muscle growth. Zinc is known to synergize well with Tongkat Ali because it also stimulates the Leydig cells to produce testosterone. Zinc is also known to increase semen volume, which is a lesser-known benefit of Tongkat Ali.
Meanwhile, Magnesium Aspartate is best known for its impact on free testosterone levels. It helps enhance free testosterone levels by allowing bioavailable testosterone to freely interact with androgen receptors, and this perfectly complements the protein-binding effect of Tongkat Ali to further maximize bioavailable testosterone.
KSM-66 is a licensed standardized extract of Ashwagandha, which helps improve testosterone levels, mood, and cognitive performance. Like Tongkat Ali, KSM-66 is also a cortisol inhibitor, which helps increase testosterone levels by reducing the impact of cortisol in the anabolic process. In contrast to Tongkat Ali, KSM-66 is a more potent cortisol inhibitor, and this perfectly complements the cortisol inhibition properties of Tongkat Ali, as both ingredients work together to lower the body’s cortisol levels to fully maximize testosterone production.
Fenugreek is the second ingredient in the formula derived from traditional Ayurveda that helps to increase and sustain testosterone levels. Tongkat Ali has an extremely potent testosterone-boosting core, and Fenugreek helps by keeping testosterone metabolites in check. Tongkat Ali acts as an anti-aromatase agent that prevents the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, while Fenugreek inhibits the 5alpha-reductase enzyme to reduce the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Fenugreek was specifically selected for this unique benefit, and combining Fenugreek and Tongkat Ali in the same formula ultimately makes Male UltraCore a lot safer and more effective.
Tribulus Terrestris is a plant known for its ability to inhibit the aromatase enzyme. Just like Tongkat Ali, Tribulus Terrestris works to lower estrogen levels by inhibiting the enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen. In the same process, Tribulus Terrestris reduces the anti-androgenic impact of estrogen, and it also prevents erectile dysfunction, mood changes, and male breast growth, which are all directly linked to estrogen buildup.
L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that helps regulate blood pressure and blood flow. It acts as a precursor to nitric oxide, which helps blood vessels relax and dilate. L-Arginine works in conjunction with the active component of Tongkat Ali, 9-hydroxycanthin-6-one, to help induce erections and delay ejaculations. L-Arginine essentially increases blood flow to the penile artery, which is then boosted by Tongkat Ali to help you achieve fuller, more robust erections.
