Tongkat Ali GNC | What you need to know before buying Tongkat Ali at GNC

Monday, January 23, 2017

GNC, an US company, is focused on the retail sale of health and nutrition related products, including vitamins, supplements, minerals, herbs, sports nutrition, male enhancement pills, diet, and energy products.

 

 

Many people from all over the world are searching also for Tongkat Ali products on the GNC website. Today we will take a closer look at their 2 most popular Tongkat Ali products GNC has currently in their online shop.

 

Product No. 1: Source Naturals® Tongkat Ali Male Libido Tonic

Product No. 2: Now® Testo Jack 100™

 

We are going to find out whether or not we can recommend buying these products based on the information displayed on the GNC website and on the product label itself.

 

The criteria we are going to look at are the ingredients and the quality/price ratio of both products. Again, in the end we are only considering the amount of Tongkat Ali per product, as this is what we are interested in and as this is what matters in the end when buying a Tongkat Ali product.

 

As everyone should know when buying a Tongkat Ali product, there should be only one ingredient inside the capsules and this is Tongkat Ali.

 

Lets get started:

 

Ingredients: 

In general, to be able to properly determine the quality of Tongkat Ali, we need to be able to see the following information on the label:

 

Ingredient break down per capsule

Concentration

Weight per capsule

 

Product No.1: Source Naturals® Tongkat Ali

Ingredient break down per capsule: LJ100® Eurycome longifolia root extract (40% Gluco Saponins 22% Eurypeptides) (80mg),  Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Stearic Acid, Modified cellulose gum, Silica

 

Concentration of Tongkat Ali: No information on the GNC website nor on the product label provided.

 

Weight per capsule: No information on the GNC website nor on the product label provided.

 

Summary: OK, we know we have 80mg Tongkat Ali per capsule, its alright. However, what we don't know is in which quality/concentration. Is there a 1:50 extract or a 1:200 extract in the capsules, we don't know. Plus, there are other ingredients in the capsule that are not needed.

--> Can not really say much about the quality of the product as there are some information missing to be able to judge. In my opinion you don't really know what you are buying and is this good? I guess not.

 

Price: 80mg Tongkat Ali extract per capsule x 60 capsules per bottle = 4,800mg per bottle. Current selling price on GNC website per bottle is USD 41.58. To break this down and to be able to make this result comparable to other Tongkat Ali products:

 

For 1 USD you get 115.44mg of Tongkat Ali (of unknown concentration/quality)

 

............................

 

Product No.1: Now® Testo Jack 100™

Ingredient break down per capsule: Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCl) 3.50 mg, Magnesium (from magnesium aspartate) 150.00 mg, Zinc (Monomethionine and Aspartate) 10.00 mg, ZMA® 808.00 mg, Eleuthero Root (Eleutherococcus senticosus) 300.00 mg, Tribulus terrestris fruit (Protodioscin 20%) 250.00 mg, LJ100® Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) 50mg. --> (Serving Size 2 Vcaps,  Servings Per Container 60, which means 120 capsules per bottle.)

 

Concentration of Tongkat Ali: No information on the GNC website nor on the product label provided.

 

Weight per capsule: No information on the GNC website nor on the product label provided.

 

 

Summary: As we can see from the list of ingredients, there are many other ingredients than Tongkat Ali inside. If you are after Tongkat Ali only, this might not be the most efficient supplement for you. There might be some synergetic effects, however is the amount of Tongkat Ali provided even enough to experience some noticeable results? I doubt it.

 

Price: 50mg Tongkat Ali per capsule x 120 capsules per bottle = 6,000mg per bottle. Current selling price on GNC website per bottle is USD 42.99. To break this down and to be able to make this result comparable to other Tongkat Ali products:

 

For 1 USD you get 139.57mg of Tongkat Ali (of unknown concentration/quality)

 

............................

 

Now if we compare the above to another Tongkat Ali product, lets see what we get.

 

Product No. 3: Tongkat Ali root extract from Sumatra Pasak Bumi

 

Ingredient break down per capsule: Tongkat Ali root extract

Concentration: 1:200 extract

Weight per capsule: 300mg per capsule

 

Price: 300mg Tongkat Ali root extract per capsule x 100 capsules per bottle = 30,000mg per bottle. Current selling price on our website per bottle is USD 69.95. To break this down and to be able to make this result comparable to other Tongkat Ali products:

 

For 1 USD you get 428.88mg of real Tongkat Ali root extract from Indonesia.

Should I buy Tongkat Ali products from GNC website? I think the above facts are clear enough and everybody can draw their own conclusions.
