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 widely researched and proven to ensure best in class 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.
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).
Eurycomanone is a major bio-active chemical found which is unique to Tongkat Ali. It belongs to the quassinoid molecule family structure and have been widely reported by reseachers due to its potential role as antiplasmodial, anticancer, anti-HIV and other pharmacological benefits. Physta® patented extraction offers higher level of eurycomanone content than other methods.
Saponins are chemical compounds that are widely found in a range of natural plants including Tongkat Ali. Saponin is 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. Physta® extraction method offers significantly higher glycosaponin level than Panax ginseng (i.e 15% saponins)
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.
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.
