Now 650mg capsules! Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs is offering a quality Tongkat Ali (Longjack) 100:1 Extract at a very reasonable price. This is a water/alcohol extract of high quality, and Barlowe's is able to sell this powerful product at such a low price because it is produced from cultivated Indonesian Tongkat Ali roots which are then processed and extracted in China. The Tongkat Ali Certificate of Analysis (COA) for this particular batch is shown above. Since this product raises free testosterone levels in the blood, it is a good idea to take High Potency Nettle Root Extract with it, as a substance in the Nettle prevents the testosterone from binding with the Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) in the blood stream. Some clients report a reduction in back pain with the use of this Tongkat Ali Extract.
***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.
The hormone promotes secondary sex characteristics including the appearance of facial hair, enlargement of the larynx (producing a deeper voice), sexual desire and sexual behavior. In both sexes, testosterone stimulates metabolism, promotes lipogenesis (burning of fat), increases the formation of red blood cells, and accelerates muscle growth.

The British Journal of Sports Medicine reported that in a double-blind placebo controlled scientific trial, the use of Tongkat Ali extract caused a 5 % increase in lean body mass in the treatment group. On the other hand, no significant changes were observed in the placebo group. Among other interesting facts, the journal article states: "The mean arm circumference of the treatment group increased significantly by 1.8 cm after the supplementation, from 30.87 (1.88) to 32.67 (1.96) cm (p = 0.011), but there was no significant increase in the placebo group."

Eurycoma longifolia, which contains quassinoids such as eurycomalacton, eurycomanon, and eurycomanol, has been reported to have aphrodisiac properties and to increase testosterone levels in men. Previous studies have established that the testosterone supplementation increases fat free mass, muscle strength, and muscle mass, which are important for physical function and athletic performance. Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the effect of the increase in testosterone levels, obtained by administration of Eurycoma longifolia, on body composition and muscle strength and size in man. Fourteen healthy men performed an intense strength training programme with initial load of 60% RM (2 sets of 10 repetitions with 1 minute rest between, for 10 stations) on alternate days for five weeks. Simultaneously, seven men were randomly selected to consume 100 mg/day Eurycoma longifolia water soluble extract, and seven men received placebo.
The intensity of the exercise was increased by 10% RM/week. Body composition, arm circumference, one repetition maximum (1 RM), and surface electromyography (sEMG) activity were measured and recorded one day before and after the five weeks of supplementation and intervention. The lean body mass of the treatment group showed a significant increment, from 52.26 (7.18) kg to 54.39 (7.43) kg (p = 0.012), but no significant changes in fat free mass were observed in the placebo group. Percentage body fat was significantly decreased in the treatment and placebo group, from 31.30 (5.48)% to 28.44 (6.43)% (p = 0.01) and from 22.83 (2.43)% to 21.33 (2.35)% (p = 0.001) respectively. The 1RM test showed a significant increase from 73.71 (16.63) to 78.71 (17.0) kg (p = 0.006) in the treatment group and from 77.29 (8.9) to 79.43 (8.8) kg (p = 0.011) in the placebo group. The increase in strength in the treatment group was larger than in the placebo group (6.78% and 2.77% respectively). The mean frequency of sEMG on the biceps in the treatment and placebo groups decreased significantly, from 121.77 (40.0) to 90.47 (64.6) ÂµV (p = 0.012) and from 127.95 (30.9) to 98.8 (50.1) ÂµV (p = 0.036) respectively.
The treatment produced 2.92% greater reduction in electrical activity of the muscle measured at the end of the experiment compared with placebo. The mean arm circumference of the treatment group increased significantly by 1.8 cm after the supplementation, from 30.87 (1.88) to 32.67 (1.96) cm (p = 0.011), but there was no significant increase in the placebo group. The results suggest that water soluble extract of Eurycoma longifolia Jack increased fat free mass, reduced body fat, and increased muscle strength and size, and thus may have an ergogenic effect. Further investigations are warranted. Source: Abstract is taken from the website of British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Study Objective: Effect of Eurycoma longifolia on libido in middle-aged male rats: The effect of increasing doses of various fractions of Eurycoma longifolia extracts on libido was examined in middle-aged male rats. The results showed that a high dose (800 mg/kg) of all E. longifolia extracts significantly increased mount frequency (MF) (P < 0.05) over that of untreated controls, but had no effect on the frequency of intromission or ejaculation. Methanol, chloroform, water, and butanol fractions exhibited MF of 2.5 +/- 0.1, 2.6 +/- 0.3, 2.5 +/- 0.1 and 2.6 +/- 0.2, respectively, in adult, middle-aged male rats, and retired breeders versus 2.3 +/- 0.1 in untreated controls. This translated to a minor increase in MF of 8.7%, 13.0%, 8.7%, and 13.0% for these fractions, respectively, during the 20-minute observation period. The results of this study show that Eurycoma longifolia extracts can increase libido in middle-aged male rats.

The production of testosterone (the principal male-determining sex hormone) falls progressively from age 40. Experts call this "partial androgen deficiency of the aging male." Androgens are steroid hormones with specific effects on tissue growth (muscle, fat, skin, hair and others) and brain function. They play important roles in men and women, but are produced in much larger quantities in men. In men after puberty, the testicles produce most androgens, mainly as testosterone. It has been suggested that Tongkat Ali may block negative feedback to the hypo-thalamus and pituitary glands, so the body continues to produce testosterone at elevated levels.

Recently purchased a couple bottles of Tongkat Ali from you to go along with my re-intro to working out and can say I'm thoroughly impressed once again with your products. Z.S., New York, New York (04/06/2017)
Hi Barlowe, I am a regular user of your Tongkat Ali. It raised my low testosterone by 40% when I first started using it! R.R., Tacoma Park, Maryland (11/21/2016)
I got the order of Kanna and Tongkat within 6 days which is really fast shipping to Canada. Thank you very much. I also like to thank you for the sample pack. I ripped the ligaments and tissue of my T12 vertebrae eight years ago. When it first happen I started using pain killers. From there I went to herbs - Kratom and Kava - but it was getting expensive. On a website I saw one person report how much relief he got from joint pain using longjack ali. So I ordered some and tried it. Within a week I wasn't in pain. In the last two weeks my back flared back up. I was taking 20 Tylenol with codeine so I wouldn't be crying at work. Monday morning the Tongkat I ordered from you arrived. Today is Wednesday and I woke up without pain and throughout the whole day I have only taken two Tylenol with codeine to numb the pain a bit. You sell some of the best Tongkat I have ever tried. I hope you share this with people because I know all about severe chronic back pain and no one needs to go through it. Thanks Barlowe. K.F., Ontario, Canada
Hey Barlowe, hope you're doing well. I just wanted to tell you that I am overly impressed with your 100:1 tongkat. It seems to be extremely potent. I'm taking 4 a day and have noticed the effects after only three days. I have noticed more energy and my libido is through the roof. I'll keep you informed on future results but I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am so far. Thanks for everything! J.L., Hazlehurst, GA (5/27/2013)
Hi- I'm S. C., a 58 year-old bodybuilder. I bought about 16 of your products a while back. These things have really kicked in, and made a noticeable difference in my testosterone state. I am losing fat while gaining muscles, with the most productive weight lifting sessions I have had since I started 3 years ago. I just wanted to let you know. S.C. Apple Valley, MN (6/04/2013)
Your Tongkat Ali (100:1) is dynamite, best I've tried, works well before a weight workout. Thanks. D.S. Upland, CA (10/04/2013)
Having tried a few testosterone supplements on the market I feel I’m qualified enough to give a product review and recommendation. Also I’m forty net year and therefore old enough to get some benefit from the products. Your fenugreek supplement is the best natural testosterone boosting supplement available. The increase is greater than that of D Aspartic acid and sustained for a much longer period of time. It’s so effective I’d almost insist it’s taken in conjunction with an estrogenic inhibitor. I would challenge anyone to have blood test against an alternative supplement that could rival it. Your tongkat ali extract (100:1) is a strong second. The testosterone rise is not as large but it’s aphrodisiac and male performance qualities are superior to any product on the market. B.P., Victoria Point, Australia (11/06/2014)
