The most important things to look for when trying to find a Good Tongkat Ali brand is:
- The Authenticity of the Product
- The Manufacturing Process
- The Colour of the Tongkat Ali Supplement
- The Dosage (And Extract Ratio)
- The Ingredients List
- The Company’s Reputation
Authenticity Of The Tongkat Ali Extract
Look for Tongkat Ali products that have been certified by an independent body for example. our Tongkat Ali capsules have been certified to be to the standards set by the WHO (World Health Organization) and the Indonesian Ministry of Health. We’ve also got an HPLC certification that tested our powder to make sure it was extracted at the exact 200:1 ratio (or approximately 2% Eurycomanone). A lot of retailers on the Internet will claim that their Tongkat Ali products are “certified” but in most cases, these certifications are nothing more than a piece of paper with a stamp on it.
Look for Tongkat Ali Manufacturer that has a GMP certified facility (or equivalent). This is the gold standard in the supplement industry and ensures that the manufacturing process is done in a way that meets the highest quality control standards.
Some Tongkat Ali manufacturers use harsh solvents such as acetone, hexane and ethanol during the manufacturing process, which can extract harmful toxins from the Tongkat Ali root.
Our Tongkat Ali is manufactured using a water-based extraction process, which is much safer and results in a higher quality product .. it is also certified organic, halal as well as Kosher and is produced to GMP standards. Which holds us to a very high-quality manufacturing level.
The Colour Of The Tongkat Ali Supplement
Another thing you need to be aware of is the colour of the Tongkat Ali supplement. Many low-quality Tongkat Ali supplements are an almost black colour (sometimes even red) because they’ve been poorly processed and/or dies have been added to give it a more ‘unique’ look – strictly for marketing purposes.
Our Tongkat Ali is a natural light brown colour (just like the actual root) because it’s been extracted and processed using the highest quality standards which retain the Tongkat Ali Root Colour, resulting in a very pure Tongkat Ali Root extract.
The Dosage (And Extract Ratio)
Another important thing to look for is the dosage and extract ratio. Some Tongkat Ali supplements have a very low dosage (often as little as 50mg per capsule) and/or they use an extract ratio of 100:1 or lower.
Look for Tongkat Ali supplements that have an extract ratio of 200:1 or higher. This will ensure you’re getting the most bang for your buck.
With a little research on the internet, you will see that benefits from lower dosages are questionable at best and in most cases, you’re better off taking a higher dosage of a quality product.
We’ve also compiled a bunch of research studies (see here) on proven tongkat ali health benefits.
Another thing you should check before buying any tongkat ali supplement is the ingredients list. Many Tongkat Ali supplements on the market in Australia contain a lot of fillers and additives which can be harmful to your health.
They also might contain other ingredients in a ‘patented formula’ blend which can have adverse effects on your body.
Our Tongkat Ali supplement contains only the purest Tongkat Ali Root Extract and no fillers or additives.
Finally, you should always do some research on the company selling the tongkat ali supplement to make sure they have a good reputation. There are a lot of companies out there that are only interested in making a quick buck and will put profit before your health.
