Eurycoma longifolia (50g)
Tongkat Ali is a medicinal plant that is held in the highest honor in Southeast Asia. In Vietnam, Tongkat Ali is considered a 'remedy for hundreds of diseases'. Tongkat Ali root is used across the region to treat malaria, and the effectiveness of the root in this regard has been demonstrated in numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies.
The collection of Tongkat Ali roots is one of the few remaining opportunities for tribal societies, who live at the forest’s edge, to earn a decent income. It is one of the main factors slowing the migration of tribal societies to the cities in search of work.
'Tongkat' is the Malaysian word for stick, and 'Tongkat Ali' means, literally, 'Ali's stick', a clear allusion to what effect the medicinal plant has on the male sex organ.
Older men often suffer reduced levels of testosterone, leading to decreased libido, diminished energy levels, loss of muscle tone and fluctuations in mood. Tongkat Ali can help to combat these effects by increasing testosterone levels whilst lowering levels of cortisol, a major stress hormone. Hence, it’s reputation as an anti-aging remedy.
Traditional Use: drink as a tonic / tea ( 2-4 Teaspoons )
