Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia)
Tongkat Ali is a flowering plant native to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. Many of the common names refer to the plant’s medicinal use and extreme bitterness. Increased testosterone levels and boosting sperm quality are just some benefits of this powerful herb. An electronic taste sensor was devised to detect the presence and concentration of quassinoids and determine the use of genuine Eurycoma longifolia.
Quassinoids, the biologically active components of Tongkat Ali root, are extremely bitter. They are named after quassin, the long-isolated bitter principle of the quassia tree.
Quassin is regarded as the most bitter substance in nature, 50 times more bitter than quinine.
The plant parts have traditionally been used as herbal medicine because of its antimalarial, aphrodisiac, antidiabetic, antimicrobial, and antipyretic properties.
Apart from its use as a traditional medicine Eurycoma longifolia is used as food and drink additive. According to WebMD, evidence suggests that Tongkat Ali supplements have a role in boosting sperm quality.
Herb powders are usually made from the entire herb, plant or seed meat by the method of dehydration and pulverization of the product. Choose your favorite herb and enjoy the herbal effects.
