Tongkat Ali is a recognised ancient gem of the Southeast Asian tropics. But rest assured, the process of extracting its precious component — the very heart of our Physta® extract — is anything but old! 

Appreciating the herb from an academic standpoint has helped us embrace the hard work it takes to deliver our product as per global standards. Creating our premium Tongkat Ali supplements doesn’t stop at harvesting top-notch batches of the plants. From root to capsule, our Tongkat Ali extract has been analysed with the meticulousness that all phytochemical researches require. What you see in each Biotropics bottle is a ready-to-consume remedy that has undergone stringent discovery research. Our Physta® extract has undergone 14 clinical studies and 21 studies that have all identified the potency of its bioactive contents. As a result, the safety, efficacy, and quality of our supplements are guaranteed.

So what is Physta®

Found abundantly throughout Malaysia and some parts of Southeast Asia, Tongkat Ali is also known as longjack, or more officially, Eurycoma longifolia. Meanwhile, Physta® is a standardised bioactive component of the extract we derive from the plant’s roots.

We take pride in the ethical and scientifically sound method we use in our labs to derive the extract right from the plant’s roots. Our extraction technology is achieved through the collaborative works between the Malaysian government and experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States of America

In a nutshell, Physta® is unlike generic Tongkat Ali Extracts — it is the only research-backed, lab-tested, and patented Tongkat Ali to ensure that you experience the purest and safest consumption of the herb. Because here at Biotropics, quality precedes everything else.

What’s also great about our Tongkat Ali extract is that it modulates our hormones naturally. It helps to address various health issues simultaneously — at the source. This feature is unlike other extracts available in the market, which often focus on single health conditions.

So What is Physta good for?

The adage goes that prevention is better than cure. Remarkably, Tongkat Ali adheres to this principle with its myriad health benefits that span from the physical to the emotional. 

Then, there is the apparent fact that this immunity-boosting herb improves male fertility by optimising testosterone count. Beyond the bedroom, this feat helps not just active men but also active women to increase their athletic performance — on top of building their muscle tone and bone strength.

Tongkat Ali is also a natural catalyst for mental wellness. With its proven ability to fight fatigue and reduce stress, it also primes you to focus mentally.

And so with these benefits in mind, now imagine when Tongkat Ali’s extract that you get is lab-tested and scientifically proven to be 100% natural safe and effective.

That’s where our versatile Physta® comes into play.

What goes in the process?

So what exactly takes place in our labs when we extract Physta® from our carefully selected Tongkat Ali plants? What is the process of extracting the component is genuinely like? Now, the most potent part of Tongkat Ali is its roots. To ensure that we get the best extraction, we not only use this part of the plant but ones that pass our qualification tests.

But what truly makes a Tongkat Ali root a successful candidate? 

The answer lies in the degree of its bioactive compounds, which, when optimally extracted, are scientifically proven to be safe and beneficial for health. These compounds contain quassinoids, including eurycomaoside, eurycolactone, and eurycomanone. They make up a significant portion of the root’s phytochemical constituents and are responsible for improving your energy reserve, reducing fatigue and improving your body’s overall level of endurance.

Be wary of suppliers offering Tongkat Ali extracts boasting high chemical markers such as eurycomanone>2% and even up to 8%. While these can be easily achieved from simple processing manipulations and adulteration techniques, without actual substation of safety and efficacy – it may prove to be more harmful to your customers and ruin the brand of your company.

To ensure that the extracted compounds meet the expected level, we follow a stringent quality control protocolthat satisfies the safety levels set by national and international standards such as SIRIM and the British and American pharmacopoeias. Additionally, we also practice a batch-to-batch quality control regime to ensure that our supplements contain the right amount of these bioactive compounds, ensuring that you receive the proper dose.
