What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Erectile Dysfunction is a topic that interests most men but often less discussed in public forums or amongst friends. The World Health Organisation (WHO) published an estimate over 150 million cases of ED worldwide and forecasted to reach 320 million cases by 2025.
At the very basic level, ED is defined as trouble getting or keeping an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. Whilst arousal takes longer as man ages, chronic erectile dysfunction requires medical attention.
There are two commons types of ED:
- Organic Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
- Premature Ejaculation (PE)
If we look deeper at the medical definition from Hopkins Medicine on the organic Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – which is the most common ED amongst men, you will find the following definition:
“Organic ED involves abnormalities the penile arteries, veins, or both and is the most common cause of ED, especially in older men. When the problem is arterial, it is usually caused by arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, although trauma to the arteries may be the cause. The controllable risk factors for arteriosclerosis–being overweight, lack of exercise, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cigarette smoking–can cause erectile failure often before progressing to affect the heart
Poor ability to maintain an erection is often an early symptom of erectile dysfunction. Although the condition is called venous leak, the real problem is not with the veins but malfunction of the smooth muscle that surrounds the veins.
The end result is difficulty with maintain a firm erection (or losing an erection too quickly) that is now believe to be an early manifestation of atherosclerosis and vascular disease.”
Common treatments for ED
- Medical Treatments
Most doctors will recommend prescription drugs such as Slidenafil, Vardenafil, Tadalafil, Avanafil. Most consumers and patients are using male enhancement pills such as Viagra which contains the above ingredients.
These laboratory manufactured drugs contains chemical ingredients that may produce side-effects – headaches, dizziness, nausea, muscle pains are common amongst viagra users.

2. Hormone replacement therapy
Most patients are seeking alternative remedies through natural ways with less or no side-effects to restore that long lost hormone. In this case, testosterone is one key hormones responsible to give back the arousal and libido.
Natural aphrodisiac or herbs such as Tongkat Ali can be part of a testosterone replacement therapy to potentially improve energy, mood, increase muscle mass and weight, and heighten sexual libido in older men who may have deficient levels of testosterone.
The inevitable rise of natural aphrodisiac
Chris Kilham is a reputable medicine hunter who researches natural remedies all over the world, from the Amazon to Siberia. Located in the United States, he advises herbal, cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies, is a regular guest on radio and TV programs worldwide, and is the author of fifteen books.
His recent discovery of Tongkat Ali in Malaysia has drawn global curiosity of this magical herb. You may watch the video by ABC News here:
Tongkat Ali from the plant Eurycoma Longifolia has a long history. Once only a remedy of the Orang Asli aboriginals in Malaysia, Tongkat Ali is gaining popularity in United Kingdom, Japan, Korea, China, and the U.S., where it is mainly consumed in capsules. This explains the increasing number of Google searches on Tongkat Ali over the years.
As a global household name, Tongkat Ali is quintessentially Malaysian. Part of the secret of the herb’s success according to Chris is that beyond the marketing hype, scientific results from research papers showed positive signs of boosting libido and improves sperm concentration in men.
And while the pharmaceutical industry was shocked by the shift of consumer demand towards herbal alternatives, Tongkat Ali herbal root seemed to be meeting consumer expectations with scientifically proven health benefits and fewer side-effects.
Rising Herbal Sales Boosting Tongkat Ali's popularity
The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 1 out 5 people have now used herbal products as dietary supplements or to improve health. This trend does not mean consumers are walking away from medicinal drugs but rising awareness of natural remedies mean consumers are presented with plenty of options to restore their health.
In the U.S. herbal market, Tongkat Ali has been around for years, but now the herb appears to be rising in popularity, largely due to the increased awareness as a safe choice from published research activities.

This is something that the various erectile drugs do not do. And in an era of “low T” awareness, Tongkat Ali appears to be gaining recognition at just the right time. Even researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have studied Tongkat Ali, finding in the root numerous beneficial compounds.
Currently the only patented formulation for Tongkat Ali extract is Physta® – a water-soluble extract technology jointly developed with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with US Patent: 7132117 and another EU Patent: 1313491.
The finest Tongkat Ali is usually harvested for 5 years, deep in rainforests away from human contamination and pollution. And each raw Tongkat Ali is subjected to chromatography fingerprinting to ensure the quality extract.
Do you know that Chris has been to Malaysia several times to investigate, validate and publish the Tongkat Ali? Well, Chris may be the lucky one but he is not the only one who has been to such exploration.
As the net export of Tongkat Ali, Malaysia is blessed with natural herbal remedies that have been around for centuries.
Together with standardized manufacturing practices and strict quality control, brands such as AKARALI was born to meet the growing demand in the Vitamins, Minerals , Nutritional and Herbal supplements (VHMS) industry as more consumers are returning to natural herbs to revitalise energy and health.
