We share our Top 5 Rules

Number 1 : Find Mature Tongkat Ali Root

The extract of Tongkat Ali  comes from the root.

Tongkat Ali root has the highest bioactive ingredients as it absorbs the most nutrients from the soil.

But before the root can accumulate the bioactive ingredients, it needs time to grow! Tongkat Ali need time to grow and consume more nutrients over a longer period.

Senior scientist Dr. Annie George  has spent years in Biotropics, studying Tongkat Ali bioactive ingredients from various samples and trees in Malaysia. From her studies she has reported;

“The best Tongkat Ali root with the highest nutrient is from a 5 year old plant.” - Dr. Annie George, Senior Scientist - Biotropics

Unfortunately many Tongkat Ali manufacturers and suppliers often harvest young premature plants. Many Premature plants, averaging 2-3 year old, are often harvested illegally for mass export to China, and sold as Tongkat Ali powder extract across the world.


Number 2: Country of Origin

Malaysia is blessed with rich biodiversity including soil that is rich in nutrients. The best Tongkat Ali plants are left to grow naturally in 100 million-year-old Malaysian rainforests, fueled by the best soil with the best nutrients. 

Generally, Tongkat Ali roots sourced from Malaysia have higher bioactive ingredients compared to other Indonesian Tongkat Ali.

“Malaysia is blessed with strong Tongkat Ali supply chain with robust ecosystem.” - Nik Fahmi, Biotropics


Number 3: Yellow Tongkat Ali

There are three types of Tongkat Ali roots and each come from different plants:

  • Yellow Tongkat Ali – Eurycoma Longifolia

  • Black Tongkat Ali – Polyalthia Bullata

  • Red Tongkat Ali – Stema Tuberosa

Yellow Tongkat Ali comes from a plant known as Eurycoma Longifolia.

The Yellow Tongkat Ali is the most widely researched Tongkat Ali with more than 100 research studies and clinical trials published to date.

The Yellow Tongkat Ali delivers more health benefits and continued compared to red or black Tongkat Ali variants. It is also extremely bitter which is due to the high level of eurycomanone – a key indication to measure the potency of Tongkat Ali.

Eurycomanone is the prominent bioactive quassinoid found in Tongkat Ali which has been proven by scientists to increase testosterone whilst exhibiting anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.


Number 4: Check The Extraction Process

The best Tongkat Ali herbal relies on the extraction method and technology to ensure right among of bioactive compounds is extracted.

We strongly recommend Physta® which is the worlds first patented freeze dried extraction. This was developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Physta® standardized Tongkat Ali extract contains one of the highest bio-active compounds in the industry, making it the most potent Tongkat Ali on the planet

Some of key features of Physta:


  • Standardized 200:1 using hot-water freeze-dried extraction method

  • Produced in a manufacturing facility inspected by the United States Food and Drugs Agency (USFDA)

Quality controls performed by in-house laboratory scientists and researchers

Number 5: Single Origin Tongkat Ali

Single origin means it is harvested at the same location by the same community.

You can find single origin Tongkat Ali, harvested by highly-trained indigenous people in remote Malaysian states of Pahang and Johor

What does this mean for you? Single origin provides better long-term sustainability from replanting effort and practices.

Also Most of the research and proven clinical trials are based on 100% single-herb Tongkat Ali – typically from single origin handpicked roots with quality standardized extract.

ne mass preservation.

There is evidence in other studies to suggest that the consumption of Tongkat Ali stimulated bone formation as it triggers the manufacture of proteins which are bone-building in nature (such as OCN, RUNX-2, and BMP-2).

Super Botanic Tongkat Ali

Tongkat Ali’s global popularity in recent years is contributed by years of scientific studies, technology innovation and proven health benefits. The wide range of health benefits has made it popular not just by active sports professionals, but by both men and women across a wide range of age-group.

There are many versions of Tongkat Ali avalible but the latest technology Physta® freeze-dried water extraction technology offers superior health benefits due to higher potency. The most potent Tongkat Ali comes from its roots, with the highest concentration of eurycomanone, glycosaponin, protein and other bio-active compounds. Unfortunlety other brands often dilute it’s potency by mixing with less potent parts of the plant – eg: the branches or bark making it both cheap and less effective.

Our Tongkat Ali is based on handpicked roots from the rainforest state of Pahang in Malaysia -this is where the most potent Tongkat Ali can be found.

A study showed that Tongkat Ali found in Pahang contains higher crude protein (39.3%) compared to Tongkat Ali found in Perak (15.5%)

We have worked closely with our partners in Malaysia to deliver the best bio-active compounds of the herb.
