Heat up the Bedroom With This Ancient Herb
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Getting older comes with its share of frustrations.
And nothing’s worse than what it does to your love life.
It seems like you’re never in the mood. Or on the rare occasion that you’re feeling frisky, you’re unable to perform.
And that doesn’t just take a toll on you — it affects your partner, too.
Fortunately, all of that might be about to change.
Because there’s an all-natural plant that can help save you (and your partner) from these embarrassing disappointments.
Plus, there’s no need for a prescription — which means you can skip those embarrassing and costly doctor’s visits.
This miracle plant is called tongkat ali, and it’s long been used by traditional Asian healers to combat disease and stress and improve physical stamina. More recently, scientists have discovered it can up your testosterone levels.
You see, as you get older (past age 30), your testosterone levels begin to take a dive. When this happens, your energy drops, you begin to gain weight and your libido goes AWOL.
But if you can boost your testosterone, you can reclaim your body, restore your vigor and get back to business in the bedroom.
And tongkat ali is just the herb to help you.
In one study, only 35 percent of men had normal testosterone levels at the beginning. But after only one month of taking 200 mg per day of tongkat ali, the number of men with healthy testosterone levels skyrocketed to over 90 percent.
A different double-blind, placebo-controlled study showed that men who took tongkat ali every day experienced significantly improved erectile function and increased libido, and some even experienced fat loss.
This means by taking tongkat ali every day, you could restore your testosterone, which could improve your energy and help you bring your A game in the bedroom once again.
Tongkat ali is available through natural health retailers, but you need to be careful who you buy it from.
A recent study found that around 26 percent of tongkat ali supplements contain dangerous levels of mercury. Only get your tongkat ali from a trusted source with documented testing.
