The world' first patented
Tongkat Ali extract

What is Physta® Tongkat Ali?

Physta® is the world’s first patented Tongkat Ali extract that is used in AKARALI™ products using a standardized freeze-dried method. With the highest quality control, Physta® is proven to ensure the highest molecular bio-active compounds in Tongkat Ali root are retained for maximum potency, safety and health benefits.

Freeze-drying method is recognized and widely adopted by the nutraceutical industry as the best method to preserve nutrients from Tongkat Ali. What distinguishes freeze-drying from traditional heat-drying is in the quality, health benefits and long-term properties.

The key difference is heat from traditional drying method degrades essential bio-active compounds such as proteins. On the other hand, freeze-drying ensures molecular rigidity and minimizes degradative reactions during the extraction process.

Extensive Research and Clinically Tested

Physta® Tongkat Ali has been rigorously researched and clinically testes by independent scientists around the world. This was made possible through a significant investment from the Government of Malaysia with the private sector and university research centers.

The first breakthrough collaborative effort was performed together with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in producing the first patented extraction technology known as Physta® in early 2006 – touted as the finest and premium Tongkat Ali in the market today.

Since then, this has attracted more researchers and institutions to conduct the effectiveness and efficacy of Tongkat Ali.

Here are some institutions that have conducted research on Tongkat Ali using Physta® technology.

Physta® Tongkat Ali Bioactive Content

Physta® Tongkat Ali contains one of the highest bio-active compounds that serve as the benchmark in Tongkat Ali extract. The specifications below are obtained from our Certificate of Analysis (COA).


Total Eurycomanone

Physta® patented extraction offers higher level of eurycomanone content than other methods. 

Eurycomanone is a major bio-active chemical found which is unique to Tongkat Ali. It belongs to the quassinoid molecule family structure and has antiplasmodial, anticancer, anti-HIV and other pharmacological benefits. 


Total Glycosaponin

Physta® Tongkat Ali offers significantly higher glycosaponin level than Panax ginseng (i.e 15% saponins)

Saponin is widely used in vaccine formulations to regulate immune function. Studies showed that saponin reduces cholesterol levels, kill disease-causing bacteria, scavenge oxidative stress and inhibit tumor growth. 


Total Polysaccharide

Polysaccharides are polymeric carbohydrates that are mainly used for storing energy and providing support to cells and tissues. Studies have shown that sulfate polysaccharides exhibit immunomodulatory, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antiviral activities including anti-HIV infection, herpes, and hepatitis viruses.


Total Protein

Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma Longifolia) contains a natural plant-based protein that is safe and can be used to supplement our daily protein intake. Most Tongkat Ali plants found in Malaysia contain 0.3868 and 0.9573 mg mL(-1) of crude protein, making it ideal for vegans who are seeking for alternative source of plant-based protein.

Key features of Physta® Tongkat Ali

  • Standardized 200:1 using freeze-dried water extraction method
  • Stringent quality control using chromatography tests
  • Raw Tongkat Ali roots were carefully handpicked by experts without deforestation and damage to the natural eco-system.
  • Undergone extensive clinical trials, health benefits research studies and toxicology studies.
  • Produced in a manufacturing facility inspected by the officer of the United States Food and Drugs Agency (USFDA)
  • Quality controls performed using in-house laboratory

Physta® is proven by scientists

Physta® is a success story in the herbal industry as a result of extensive research and development by scientists and researchers around the world. Here are some of the scientists and researchers who are actively involved in clinical trials and continuous research on Physta® Tongkat Ali.
