Tongkat Ali is highly not recommended to boil water directly with the original piece. The boiled water with the original piece is too bitter and difficult to drink. But Tongkat Ali is generally made into capsules, which are easy to take. Tongkat Ali extract has good water solubility, easy absorption, and quick effect. It is indeed a very good choice.
Tongkat Ali is a wild shrub growing in the primitive tropical rainforest near the equator in Southeast Asia, and its maturity is generally more than 5 years. Tongkat Ali is also one of the most widely studied natural medicinal plants in recent years. Because it is very rare and difficult to cultivate artificially, Tongkat Ali has been listed as a nationally protected plant in Malaysia since 2001.
The chemical constituents isolated from Tongkat Ali leaves stems and roots are mainly diterpenoids and alkaloids, such as eurycomaosode, eurycolactone, eurycomalactone, eurycomanone, and pasakbmin-B. A variety of effective chemical components are mainly concentrated in the root of Tongkat Ali, so the nutritional value of the root is much higher than that of the leaves and stems.
Tongkat Ali extract can help boost immunity, refresh one's mind and replenish physical strength. It also repairs the filtering function of the kidneys and enhances metabolism.
