Anti-Oxidant Benefits

Eurycoma longifolia was studied for its antioxidant and in-vitro anti-inflammatory properties. The antioxidant activity (free radical scavenging) was evaluated to determine the total antioxidant capicity of extract Eurycoma longifolia Jack. The DPPH assay showed significant antioxidant activity in all concentrations. The antioxidant property of the extract was compared with the values of ascorbic acid, a standard antioxidant. Human RBC (HRBC) stabilization method was utilized to evaluate the in-vitro anti-inflammatory activity of the extract. The extract showed a significant anti-inflammatory activity in all the concentrations tested, and the activity was increased in a concentration dependent manner.

Male Osteoporosis Benefits

Tongkat Ali strengthens bones by:

  • Increasing testosterone levels.
  • Stimulating the production of osteoblasts, or bone-forming cells.
  • Triggering the death of cells that break down bone tissue (osteoclasts).
  • Decreasing bone loss and preserving bone mass.
  • Thus, it may be used for male osteoporosis treatment.

    In the lab, Tongkat Ali activated the production of bone-building proteins (such as BMP-2, RUNX-2, and OCN), which increases bone formation.

    Tongkat Ali also prevented calcium loss in the bones of castrated male rats with osteoporosis
