Tongkat Ali for conceiving

Living in Southeast Asia, you are probably well-aware of the notoriety of Tongkat. This Malaysian jungle herb is famous for being a natural sexual aphrodisiac — but did you know that it can also be a great aid in getting pregnant? Scientific studies on this hardy tropical flowering plant have produced increasing evidence that Tongkat Ali not only increases sexual interest, but also boosts sperm count and has the ability to fight cancer. We’ll give you the lowdown on what you need to know about using Tongkat Ali for conceiving.

1. Does Tongkat Ali really work?

The word on the street seems to be that yes, it really does. It’s been ingrained in Malay and Indonesian folk remedies for centuries, but it’s only recently that scientists have found that the proof in Tongkat Ali backs up the claims. The secret seems to lie in a plant chemical in Tongkat Ali’s plant parts called Eurycoma Longifolia that has the ability to increase testosterone production and increase sperm count. Eurycoma Longifolia has also been proven to improve sexual drive and offers some encouraging signs that it can fight off cancerous lung and breast cancer cells.
