***These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on slow speed equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.
Tongkat Ali is a popular folk name for Eurycoma longifolia, a medium size slender tree reaching 10 metres in height. The name Tongkat Ali means "Ali's walking stick." Another folk name for the plant is Longjack. Tongkat Ali is native to Malaysia, lower Burma, Thailand, and Indonesia. Tongkat Ali is a scientifically studied plant which holds up brilliantly under close scrutiny. The root contains a plethora of beneficial compounds, including potent protective antioxidants which inhibit cellular aging. Quassinoids in the root prove twice as potent as aspirin against fevers. Most importantly, Tongkat Ali extract increases the formation of testosterone levels fourfold.
This product is pure, unadulterated Sumatra Pasak Bumi Tongkat Ali wild-harvested on the Island of Sumatra, and extracted at a ratio of 200:1 in Sumatra Pasak Bumi's extraction facility there. This product utilizes the more modern extraction technique and does not yield a burnt smelling and tasting product. These capsules contain 600mg of the 200:1 extract meaning there is 36 grams of the extract in each 60 count bottle. This is 20% more of the extract than is found in the normally seen 100 count, 300mg Pasak Bumi product. Further, Barlowe's uses vegetarian capsules that are Kosher and Halal certified, instead of gelatin capsules, and bottles this product in glass.
