Tongkat Ali - Benefits

Tongkat Ali has been recently looked into by scientists as a potential treatment for Osteoporosis. In simple terms, Osteoporosis means an individual's bones are porous. 

Tongkat Ali showed properties which were conducive to bone development, and showed potential for use to treat Osteoporosis. Here are some findings:

 “Tongkat Ali was found to strengthen bones and ultimately treat male osteoporosis by a group of researchers at the Faculty of Medicine, the National University of Malaysia. This finding was due to Tongkat Ali’s major role in increasing testosterone levels, which not only stimulates the production of bone-forming cells (osteoblasts), but also activates the death of bone breakdown cells (osteoclasts), which eventually leads to bone mass preservation.”
