"Hello Serge, I really appreciate your advice here. Thank you again, I will try "sour" based fruit drinks in the morning. After several months of Tongkat Ali I am starting to really enjoy the physical improvements here. TKA is a real blessing; being totally disabled from advanced, degenerative joint disease. I am feeling like a "new man!" Just fantastic! By "cycle" are you referring to the dosage periods of ten days on, five days off? I did not quite understand this, or is it twenty days on, five days off? Or is it different for body building, or sex purposes? (I want both) Also, how would you store tka short term, long term? Really appreaciate your experienced opinions here! Thanks again"

Tongkat ali and weight loss


Tongkat ali, in sufficiently high dosage (about 2 gram of 1.50 extract per day), can act as weight loss agent, especially in women.

This is a direct consequence of tongkat ali's power to raise testosterone levels.

High testosterone suppresses prolactin (and vice versa). Furthermore, there is a direct correlation between prolactin and the neurotransmitter dopamine . If prolactin is elevated (as it happens in pituitary cancer), both dopamine and testosterone are depressed (which is why pituitary cancers are typically medicated with dopaminergics).

The testosterone-suppressing effect of prolactin is so strong that an almost total absence of libido is a major diagnostic symptom of pituitary cancer.

If testosterone levels are raised through tongkat ali, prolactin levels automatically drop. If prolactin levels are kept down, various effects of dopamine are pronounced, especially libido.

When stimulating neurotransmitters such as dopamine and norepinephrine are in the driver's seat, appetite for food is suppressed and appetite for sex is pronounced. Most diet medications work by enhancing dopamine and norepinephrine, and therefore suppressing appetite for food. Amphetamine and cocaine are the classic medications in this department.

Tongkat ali in a sufficient dosage has a similar, though less dramatic effect. This is the case because its dopamine-enhancing power is exerted on the slow lane, via testosterone.

The advantage is that the typical side effects of direct dopaminergic and norepinephrinergic stimulation are avoided. On tongkat ali, one definitely feels much more balanced than on dopaminergic medications or amphetamine. Actually, one doesn't feel as if one has "taken something".

But it is not only via the testosterone - dopamine - control of appetite route that tongkat ali aids in weight loss. Proper testosterone tone also supports an anabolic metabolism. This means a tendency to burn fat and to build muscle instead.

And last not least, tongkat ali will effect subtle lifestyle changes that are in support of weight loss. Increased sexual activity and enhancement of exercise or athletic performance, as likely on regular usage of tongkat ali, will do.

Tongkat ali now patented for weight loss


For years I have been propagating tongkat ali in high dosages for weight loss. Now somebody patented this idea in the US.

See this for details:


A printscreen of the above article can be read here:


That water-based tongkat ali extract changes body composition in men from fat to lean body mass has been confirmed in a human clinical trial.

This study was published in the Britisch Journal of Sports Medicine.

The scientific index for this study is:

Br J Sports Med.2003; 37: 464-470

An abstract of the study can be accessed via the following URL: http://bjsm.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/37/5/464

Access is free, but requires a registration.

A printscreen of the abstract can be read here:


The study was made with men. However, it is known that testosterone modulation has a greater effect on women than it does on men. Therefore, it is likely that if tongkat ali water-based extract causes fat loss in men, it will do so more dramatically in women.

However, those intending to use tongkat ali for weight loss should be aware that the tongkat ali available in health food stores in Western countries is low-ratio and low-quality, and that a lot of the extract sold on Internet spam sites is fake, and/or mixed with cheap other stuff.

Tongkat ali and athletic performance


One thing I know for sure: tongkat ali is a strong enhancer of athletic performance.

Optimal sexual function is no longer just a matter of the right attitude towards life (a psychological problem). In as much as our 'modes of production' (or, in a more narrow sense, our technologies) are evolving, optimal sexual function is becoming an affair of technical know how.

Some time in the future, genetic engineering will assure that we all get the most out of our sex lives. But even at this stage of human history, we are not just powerless bystanders.

Pharmacological intervention can go a long way if we want to improve our sexual function, and there is much more to the chemical arsenal than just Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra.

On the other hand, as a man beyond midlife, I am fed up with the constant implied requirement that I as a man would have to produce a world-class erection out of the blue in every sexual encounter.

Fact is that the responsibility for an optimal penile-vaginal fit ought to be shared by a man and a woman. It's not that satisfactory intercourse should only be guaranteed by the man in that he supplies a large organ of optimal rigidity.

The shared responsibility would mean that a woman also takes care so that she doesn't have a loose, over-lubricated vagina.

As a Western man who has been living in Southeast Asia for decades, I can testify that a lack of rigidity on the part of the man is easily compensated by vaginal tightness of a woman. To be more precise: if a semi-erect man begins inserting his organ into almost virginal vagina, the orgasmic sensation will follow nevertheless, in spite of lacking rigidity. Or, alternatively, because the almost virginal vagina has a tight grip on the semi-erect man, a full erection will develop all by itself.

Now, compare this to a sexual attempt with a woman with a monster hole. Not only will there be no orgasmic stimulus. A full erection will also not happen because the man's organ is lost in an oversize swamped cavity and feels nothing (except maybe disappointment) - no vaginal grip anyway.

It's no surprise that vaginal canal reduction surgery has become so popular. It is an, albeit desperate, attempt of women to become able again to satisfy their husbands, or the man a woman wants to become her husband.

However, vaginal reduction surgery has its pitfalls. A scared vagina doesn't provide the smooth feeling of a naturally tight vagina. And mind you: the vagina of a woman who has undergone vaginal reduction surgery cannot be used for up to a year. Now, this certainly is not conducive to a plan to hold a man by providing him with optimal sexual satisfaction.

Women in the West ought to learn from their sisters in Southeast Asia, where a number of herbs have been used for centuries to reduce vaginal size, such as daun sirih and kayu rapat (the tightness wood).
