January 2 2017

Eurycoma longifolia is a small tree found in the jungles throughout Malaysia and Southeat Asia. It is commonly known as Tongkat Ali and some call it Longjack (you can purchase eurycoma on sale). Natives consider every part of the tree as medicine. Eurycoma is used as a tonic, to treat malaria, and as an aphrodisiac.

Dose and dosage, how much to take
The right dose or dosage is difficult to say since there is a great range of peoples’ reaction to this herb. A reasonable amount to begin with is 200 mg of the root powder in capsule form. If you are sensitive to herbal products, or older, begin with less.

 

How does eurycoma supplement work?
Very little is known regarding the mechanisms of action and how it helps treat impotence. Recent studies indicate that the root contains several compounds including beta-carboline alkaloids and quassinoid-type glycosides. How these compounds and many others ineurycoma influence the human sexual response is not clearly understood at this time. I have read promotional material by some vitamin companies regarding eurycoma  that it enhances testosterone production, however we have not been able to definitively confirm this claim through a Medline search.

Q. Can I take eurycoma pills regularly for many months?
A. As with most herbs, we recommend taking breaks from use. You could take a pill for 2 or 3 days and take a few days off.

Eurycoma longifolia is sold as a powder, and in capsules, sometimes mixed with other herbs in a varieties of dosages and combinations. There are a number of eurycoma supplements available in various potencies, and since each company has a different way of extracting, it is challenging to give dosage recommendations that would be consistently effective. Erectile dysfunction improvement can occur with the use of eurycoma supplements and the use of tribulus extract. There are many herbal extracts that are effective as aphrodisiacs, including rhodiola which is dosed for energy boost, this is an herb that has been used in Russia.

Side effects, adverse reactions, toxicity
One of the shortcomings of Eurycoma supplements is that they can cause insomnia, and lack of sleep can lower sex drive. Therefore it is somewhat difficult to find the right dose that works without causing this insomnia. High dose can also cause increased body temperature. Some people find that they become restless and impatient. Long term effects of eurycoma on human consumption are not known. It is best, until we learn more, to not take eurycoma continuously without breaks.

Energy, fatigue
Q. Does eurycoma give more energy?
A. We believe it is a powerful energy booster. After 2 or 3 days of taking a eurycoma supplement, there is a general sense of enhanced energy that occurs. However, after a high dose of eurycoma, the resulting shallow sleep from the overstimulation can lower energy levels. High doses can cause restlessness and impatience.

To evaluate methanolic, ethanolic, acetone and aqueous extracts from different parts of eurycoma longifolia Jack (leave, stem, and root) for antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and to utilize the leaves and stem parts rather than the root, which is already used for male sexual enhancement in Malaysia. The alcoholic and acetone extracts from leaves and stems of Eurycoma longifolia Jack contain potent antibacterial agents.

Malaria
Among the quassinoids isolated from Eurycoma longifolia Jack, eurycomanone was identified as the most potent and toxic inhibitor of the chloroquine-resistant Gombak A isolate of Plasmodium falciparum.

Antiplasmodial studies of Eurycoma longifolia Jack using the lactate dehydrogenase assay of Plasmodium falciparum. Chan KL, . Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang, Malaysia.
J Ethnopharmacol. 2004.
The roots of Eurycoma longifolia Jack have been used as traditional medicine to treat malaria. A systematic bioactivity-guided fractionation of this plant was conducted involving the determination of the effect of its various extracts and their chemical constituents on the lactate dehydrogenase activity of in vitro chloroquine-resistant Gombak A isolate and chloroquine-sensitive D10 strain of Plasmodium falciparum parasites. Their antiplasmodial activity was also compared with their known in vitro cytotoxicity against KB cells. Four quassinoids from eurycoma longifolia, eurycomanone, 13,21-dihydroeurycomanone, epoxyeurycomanone, eurycomalactone and an alkaloid, 9-methoxycanthin-6-one, displayed higher antiplasmodial activity against Gombak A isolate but were less active against the D10 strain when compared with chloroquine.

Review for sexual enhancement studies in rodents
Eurycoma longifolia Jack enhances sexual motivation in middle-aged male mice.
J Basic Clin Physiol Pharmacol. 2003. Ang HH, Lee KL. University Science Malaysia, Minden, Penang, Malaysia.
Eurycoma longifolia Jack was investigated for sexual motivation activity in adult, middle-aged male mice and in retired breeders, using the modified open field and the modified runway choice methods. Each mouse received 500 mg/kg of one of 4 fractions of eurycoma longifolia Jack, viz. chloroform, methanol, butanol, and water, whereas the mice in the control and yohimbine groups received 3 ml/kg of normal saline and 30 mg/kg of yohimbine daily respectively for 10 d. The results show a transient increase in the percentage of male mice responding to the right choice after chronic consumption of the fractions with 50 percent of the adult middle-aged male mice treated with eurycoma longifolia Jack and yohimbine scoring the right choice after 8 and 5 days post-treatment respectively. In conclusion, this study has shown that eurycoma longifolia Jack continues to enhance sexual motivation in adult, middle-aged male mice and in retired breeders.

The effects of eurycoma longifolia Jack were studied on the sexual qualities of middle aged male rats after dosing them with 0.5 g/kg of various fractions of eurycoma longifolia whilst the control group received 3 ml/kg of normal saline daily for 12 weeks. Results showed than eurycoma longifolia Jack enhanced the sexual qualities of the middle aged male rats by decreasing their hesitation time as compared to controls. Besides these, there was a transient increase in the % of the male rats responding to the right choice after chronic administration of 0.5 g/kg eurycoma longifolia Jack, with more than 50% of the male rats scored right choice after 2 weeks post-treatment and the effect was more prominent at the dose of the observation period. However, there was no sexual enhancement of the middle aged male rats which consumed normal saline since only 45-55% of the male rats responded to right choice throughout the investigation period. Hence, this study shows that eurycoma longifolia Jack enhanced the sexual qualities of the middle aged male rats, further supports the folk use of Eurycoma longifolia Jack as an aphrodisiac.
