Longifolia (also known as Eurycoma Longifolia, Jack, Long Jack, Tongkat Ali and Malaysian Ginseng) is a shrub-tree that grows in Malaysia, Burma, Indochina, Thailand, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Phillipines. It traditionally has been primarily used as an aphrodisiac and for improving general health. Other traditional uses include treatment of aches, persistent fever, malaria, dysentery, glandular swelling, bleeding (as a coagulant), edema, hypertension, syphilitic sores, and ulcers. Longifolia is believed to stimulate the production of endogenous testosterone within the normal range and help to reduce the levels of bound and metabolically inactive testosterone in the body. It is believed to achieve this through the production of Leutinizing Hormone (LH) and scientific studies support this.
Longifolia administration may be beneficial for any individual who desires improvements in sexual function and general health. Athletes seeking high levels of performance may also benefit from Longifolia's testosterone supporting properties, which has been shown to help support better lean muscle mass gains compared to placebo and better improvements in performance. Eurycoma Longifolia may be beneficially stacked with other supplements including chrysin & resveratrol, pre-workout supplements, post workout supplements, protein & weight gain powders as well as GH support supplements. It is best to start taking Longjack slowly to assess your tolerance to minimize any potential side effects as large doses can cause light headaches and dizziness in the first few days of supplementation.
