Genuine tongkat ali is no health risk, even at a generous dosage


But fake tongkat ali kills.

Just consider the news of the past few month. 40,000 sachets of fake tongkat ali coffee seized in Malaysia, Zambia has it's own scandal of fake tongkat ali, and in the US, another fake tongkat ali coffee from Malaysia / Singapore has been recalled.

Most fake tongkat ali is a root powder, which may or may not be tongkat ali, laced with a sildenafil analogue.

Mind you, Pfizer's Viagra is sildenafil citrate. Analogues may be other salts of sildenafil, or a sildenafil, altered on a side string without clear pharmaceutical effects.

Analogues of sildenafil have been around from the time when sildenafil citrate was still patented.

But when you shop for tongkat ali you probably don't want a phosphodiesterase inhibitor.

Sure, phosphodiesterase inhibitors cause erections alright.

But genuine tongkat ali enhances testosterone, with a great positive effect on mood and general well-being.

And these are effects that are clearly felt with our genuine products, but never with fakes.
