Tongkat Ali herb works by increasing the levels of testosterone in the body. It is different from artificial testosterone as an anabolic steroid. Artificial testosterone causes a negative reaction from the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus.
Two of these glands secrete a variety of hormones that send signals to the Leydig cells and other cells that synthesize testosterone to inhibit the production of testosterone.
This will lead to shrinkage of the male penis size, especially in the testis. The official medical term for this condition is testicular atrophy. How the Tongkat Ali totally contrary to the synthetic testosterone.
Basically, Tongkat Ali accelerate the production of testosterone by inhibiting testosterone negative feedback reaction. Tongkat Ali works in such a way so as to increase the level of testosterone in the body did not have any effect on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Therefore, both the gland signall not send anything to stop the synthesis of testosterone.

Research shows that during puberty, testosterone levels increase. The peak is at age 25, and began to decline gradually with increasing age.
Several medical studies show that, in general, testosterone production decreased by 2% per year from the age of 30 years. The decrease in testosterone levels with age is what makes many young men ages experienced an unsatisfactory sexual experience.
It has been found that, even in healthy men even though, at the age of 55, the amount of testosterone that is passed into the blood circulation is far less than 10 years earlier.
In fact, at the age of 80 most of the hormone dropped to levels similar to before the age of puberty. More extreme decline occurred in heavy smokers and alcoholics.
