Doesn't matter, they're all the same! Whatever you call it, this herb is one of the most famous ones from Traditional Chinese Medicine. It's been promoted for an extensive list of ailments, but it's been the subject of human clinical studies for only a few of them.
However, Tongkat Ali has shown clinical efficacy for what it has been studied on. Perhaps it's most famous application is for sexual health and its function with testosterone. And it has in fact been shown in a clinical study to increase testosterone status. (1)
Tongkat Ali has also been traditionally used as an immune boosting herb. Therefore, it's been studied on its role in immune health. In another clinical study, it did demonstrate its traditional use by enhancing comprehensive immunity in both men and women. (2)
Plus, anybody who deals with stress should find this interesting. In a study on moderately stressed individuals, it was shown to decrease tension, anger, and confusion. (1) It was also shown to improve the stress hormone profile by decreasing cortisol exposure. The conclusion of the study was that Tongkat Ali could help shield the body from the detrimental effects of “modern” chronic stress. (1)
The dosage used in these studies was 200 mg using a 25:1 standardized extract. This kind of extract standardizes for the active compounds like eurypeptides, glycosaponins, and eurycomanone.
Because of all of these unique and varying benefits, we believe that this is a perfect ingredient to be supplemented into just about anybody's diet. Therefore, we included it in both our Pinnacle Men's and Women's Multis! And unlike other multivitamins that try to include Tongkat Ali for these very same reasons, we actually include the clinical dosage.
Other multivitamins might include 5, 25, or maybe up to 50 mg. But we include the full 200 mg! And we use a very high quality extract. It's a 100:1 standardization, which is even more potent than the 25:1 extract that was used in those studies.
This helps us ensure you actually get all the testosterone benefits for men, immune system effects, and anti-stress effects. And the best part is that you don't have to rely on this ingredient alone. If you want those benefits, then The Pinnacle Men's and Women's Multis have you covered.
They have multiple ingredients at their clinical dosages, alongside a full 100% RDA/AI dosage of all the different essential vitamins and trace minerals for those purposes. See what it can do for you!
