It's difficult to recommend a dose that will suit everybody but if you are slightly built or elderly, 1 capsule daily may be enough. If, on the other hand, you are a huge hulking bodybuilder you may need 2-4 daily. As it is an expensive supplement, it may be best to take 1 daily for 5 days or so and increase as required. For best results we suggest taking Tongkat Ali in cycles. Use either a 7 days on 4 days off cycle, or a 10 days on 5 days off cycle, whichever is more convenient.
* This is such a potent and concentrated extract that the capsules should be taken with food and plenty of water, to avoid possible stomach discomfort.

There have been many worrying reports of increased risk of heart attack in older men receiving testosterone therapy. Tongkat Ali does not contain any testosterone - it simply stimulates the body to produce more natural testosterone, so there is no increased risk of cardiovascular events when using Tongkat Ali.
Notes on the colour of Tongkat Ali extract
There is a popular misconception that Tongkat Ali (TA) extract should be dark brown. This is not true and is normally propagated by sellers of dark brown TA. In fact, the purest form of Tongkat Ali extract is white! The main active ingredient of TA, and the one that is responsible for enhancing testosterone production and improving sperm health, and also for reducing the conversion of testosterone to oestrogen (responsible for the formation of "man boobs") is a compound called Eurycomanone. Eurycomanone is snow white in its purest form. The colour of the spray dried Tongkat Ali powder after extraction varies according to many of the parameters of the extraction process, such as the amount of time that the roots have been dried, and how finely they are chipped, the extraction method itself – whether the chipped root is soaked in cold water, soaked in hot water, boiled, or repeatedly boiled. Other factors that affect the final product are: is it filtered or centrifuged, is it concentrated before drying by repeated boiling.
There are many scientific papers we have found describing the extraction process, and the resulting powder is variously described as creamy white, off white, green/yellow, tan and brown. In fact, the further from white the appearance is, the more impurities there are. However, it should be remembered that Eurycomanone is the most intensively researched of the active ingredients in TA, and, in addition to its effects on testosterone and sperm, may yet have a part to play in the treatment of malaria and some cancers. There are many other compounds that have been identified but not fully researched yet, so it may be that a combination of its ingredients will prove even more effective than Eurycomanone itself.
Unfortunately the traditional extraction methods are very hit and miss and it is only fairly recently that scientific methods have been used and it is hoped that in the near future the extract strength will be measured by the percentage Eurycomanone in the final product, instead of the extremely inaccurate 50:1, 100:1, 200:1, etc.
