There is ground root powder, which is yellow, and that is not an extract. That is, it’s not as potent as a 1:50 or 1:200 extract. The dark brown extract is the result of refining the raw root powder, either boiling then drying 50 grams to make 1 gram of extract (1:50), or boiling then drying 200 grams to make 1 gram of evern stronger extract (1:200).
You can optionally pay more to have the extract put in capsules. I don’t care about the taste so I just get the extract powder (they ship it in a ziploc bag) and measure out doses myself.
They have extract powder 100:1 at 10grams US$34.95
I worry about getting through customs here in Australia with the power, so the caps are the go. It also tastes extremely bitter I’m told. Recommended cycle is 5 on 2 off - easy as it aligns with PE.

Seriously, I’d make the cycle much longer. The effect of Tongkat takes quite a while to build up: 5 days is not long enough. I do a 20/10 day cycle: at the end of 20 days I start to get the burned out feeling which means “time for a rest”.
I just noticed that the 1:100 extract are only 50mg caps at therootofthematter site, whereas you guys have 400mg caps 50:1 or 200:1. Hmmm, they go on about their LJ100 product being the stongest extract currently available http://tongkat-ali-herb-testosterone.com/. For bodybuilders they recommend 200mg per day and up to 500mg is safe. Also mentioned is a tapering improvement above this.
I have tried RedKat, and the Coffee blend from amazingherbs.com
They did not work on my as well as the 1:50 I have from Indonesia. I am eager to try my 1:200 purchase once it arrives.
I had tried Red-Kat…only a benefit the first time. No good the rest of the bottle. Also, amazingherbs.com had it blended in a coffee didn’t do anything.
Hate to sound like an advertisment, but really I did tons of research about Tongkat in the months before I tried it and I do believe that the 1:200 capsules from www.tongkatali.co.uk is well priced and of high quality. They have always delivered promptly and answered my (numerous) emails with tons of literature and recommendations.
BigFatLuvRocket: I tried taking Rad Kat for a week but there were no effects. Do I have to take more than the dosage specified on the bottle?
I tried double the regular dosage. It really is not potent. I tried it for two months. $90 down the drain.
I’m very happy with the 1:50 extract from tongkatali.org. My order for 1:200 is on the way. Needless to say I’m very eager to experience the effects at that strength.
