    Recently was given a bottle of this stuff by a good friend who owns a nutrition store. I mentioned to him that my latest blood tests showed low test (I know, I know... everyone on OT has low test) and he said if it is a hormone related this should help. I believe the low test is more related to stress, but I was given the bottle regardless and want to research it before I start poppin' anything.

    Anyone ever use this stuff? It has an extract ratio of 1:50...

    it's a root sometimes made into tea quite popular with (older) men here in south east asia. our herbal version of viagra. i take it every now and then, doesn't do much for me except make my piss smell weird.

    pasak bumi literally translates to "earth root" in malay... Google "Tongkat Ali" as well.

    Why don't you buy a testosterone supplement? Fuck these herbal shit.

    I wasn't planning on doing anything other than relieving my current stress level. I do IT work for this nutrition company and in passing mentioned my blood test results to my buddy who runs the store - needless to say, he gave me a bottle and said give it a whirl.

    The stuff isn't very cheap, so I figure there is some demand for it for a reason.
