Systematic Review of Eurycoma longifolia Reports Herb Improves Health, Vigor for Male and Female Subjects

The objective of our study was to review contemporary knowledge of trends in the clinical and laboratory use of Eurycoma longifolia.

A systematic review of the medical literature from 2016 and early 2017 demonstrates that the traditional herb Eurycoma longifolia, commonly called Tongkat Ali, supports overall health and improves vigor in males and females.

Traditionally, the herb has been viewed as a supplement for men, but new research indicates that it improves CD4+T Cell Counts in both sexes if taken on a daily basis. What is more, patients who have taken the nutraceutical reported an immunological age four years younger than others taking a placebo. Improvements seen in hormonal balance, strength, quality-of-life, and sexual health, previously reported in the medical literature, were also reaffirmed.
