I am beyond 50, and when I have taken my daily dosage of 1 gram of 1:50 tongkat ali extract, I do double the number of pull-ups, compared to when I am tongkat ali sober.
The strength gain is greatest after the second day of a tongkat ali cycle, and it lasts for about two additional days after I have ended a tongkat ali cycle.
The strength gain is greatest for the kind of exercise that requires muscle strength: pull-ups or running up stairs (an exercise form I personally prefer). There is less benefit from tongkat ali for exercise that is more on endurance, rather than strength, for example distance running over flat terrain.
I think it would be most interesting to do a scientific study on the athletic performance enhancing effect of tongkat ali. Initially, a test utilizing an animal model would be appropriate, e.g. a forced swim test for mice. In such a test, it could easily be determined and measured what effect tongkat ali has on athletic performance.

They say that words are mightier than swords. Which is true. Nazi Germany started with Hitler speeches. And no Islamic terror without extremist preachers.
In the beginning was the word, says John’s gospel. Yes, all religions are constructs of language. Constructs of language have been the root of more violence among humans than any motivation not rooted in language.

Chances are you arrived at this website because you were looking for a herbal solution for benign prostate hyperplasia. I am aware of the fact that saw palmetto is fairly well established for this. But I know, and you probably know, that there are definite downsides to saw palmetto. They are the same downsides as when we use finasteride.
Aging, from a certain age onwards, is a decline of physical and mental functions.
It partially depends on outside impact (accidents and illnesses caused by external pathogens), and partially is self-regulated (the human body withdraws itself from life).
Compulsive sexual desire is a highly perception-dependent morbidity. Some men, like the Thai subject cited above, feel uncomfortable with this symptom. Other men may take it as an indication of exceptionally good sexual health.
Whether butea superba induces compulsive sexual behavior in a person consuming it will also depend on baseline values and dosages.
The Serge Kreutz food philosophy is for both dieters and gourmets what Charles Darwin’s principles of evolution are for biologists.
Bromocriptine has been the first dopaminergic medication I have been using for sexual enhancement. And indeed, bromocriptine can be a definite enrichment to the sex life especially of a novice user. The main disadvantage of bromocriptine is that it will only work well for sexual enhancement for 20 or 30 times. Already after the 3rd usage, the effect wears off.
Sildenafil is a high-affinity, somehow specific phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor. There are 12 different phosphodiesterases in the human body. Phosphodiesterase type 5 is predominant in penile tissues.
I have always been amazed by the versatility of tongkat ali.
No other herb has such a wide array of applications.
Sexual success is the ultimate purpose of my, and any man's existence.
I want to bed the best girls around, and so does any competitive man. OK, regardless of whether this is my train of thought or not, some men believe in true love and are in committed exclusive relationships.
The agenda is better sex. It’s that clear and simple. Actually, most things in life are subordinate to better sex. This is the case because, in a very essential way, we, as humans, and probably more as males than as females, derive philosophical meaning for our existence primarily from sexual satisfaction. If sexual satisfaction is no longer available, we are vegetating rather than living.
Tongkat ali and butea superba are both testosterone boosters. As such they also elevate dopamine, an important brain neurotransmitter.
