Male sexual performance
Some research indicates that E. longifolia may enhance male fertility and sexual performance.
According to this study, the beneficial effects of Tongkat Ali may include:
- increased production of testosterone
- enhanced erectile function and sexual performance
Tongkat ali’s potential to increase testosterone in men with low levels of this primary sex hormone is well known and well documented.
Low testosterone can result from aging, chemotherapy, radiation treatments, some medications, injury or infection of the testicles, and certain diseases, such as chronic alcoholism and obstructive sleep apnea.
Effects of inadequate testosterone levels include low libido, erectile dysfunction, and in some cases, infertility. Since compounds in tongkat ali may boost low testosterone, it could treat these issues.

Tongkat Ali also stimulates sexual arousal and may improve erectile dysfunction in men.

- increased semen volumes, sperm count, sperm viability, and sperm motility
This 2022 study published in the Journal of Nutritional Science & Vitaminology suggested that Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma Longifolia) may improve sleep quality and alleviates sleep problems with better circadian rhythm.
The four-week study showed that Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma Longifolia) lowers the Core Body Temperature (CBT) during sleep, and thus improving sleep quality.
Tongkat Ali may aid weight loss by stimulating thermogenesis, a process of heat production that burns calories and converts energy more efficiently.
