 Eurycoma longifolia is a medicinal plant commonly called tongkat ali (TA) and “Malaysian ginseng.” TA roots are a traditional “anti-aging” remedy and modern supplements are intended to improve libido, energy, sports performance and weight loss. Previous studies have shown properly-standardized TA to stimulate release of free testosterone, improve sex drive, reduce fatigue, and improve well-being. 

We assessed stress hormones and mood state in 63 subjects (32 men and 31 women) screenedfor moderate stress and supplemented with a standardized hot-water extract of TA root (TA)  or Placebo (PL) for 4 weeks. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) with significance set at p < 0.05 was used to determine differences between groups.

Significant improvements were found in the TA group for Tension (−11%), Anger (−12%), and Confusion (−15%). Stress hormone profile (salivary cortisol and testosterone) was significantly improved by TA supplementation, with reduced cortisol exposure (−16%) and increased testosterone status (+37%). Conclusion These results indicate that daily supplementation with tongkat ali root extract improves stress hormone profile and certain mood state parameters, suggesting that this “ancient” remedy may be an effective approach to shielding the body from the detrimental effects of “modern” chronic stress, which may include general day-to-day stress, as well as the stress of dieting, sleep deprivation, and exercise training.

( Keywords Testosterone, Cortisol, Stress, Vigor, Tongkat ali, Eurycoma, Mood
CONCLUSION. A wide range of investigations, from laboratory research, to animal feeding studies, to human supplementation trials, have confirmed the health benefits and traditional use of Tongkat Ali root extract. Laboratory evidence shows that eurycoma peptide stimulate release of free testosterone from its binding protein and improve overall hormone profiles. More than a dozen rodent feeding studies have demonstrated improved sex drive, balanced hormonal profile, and enhanced physical function. Human supplementation trials show a clear indication of reduce fatigue, heightened energy and mood, and greater sense of well-being in subject consuming Tongkat Ali root extracts. It is important to note that the majority of these studies, and all of the human supplementation trials, have been conducted on specific hot-water-extract of Eurycoma longifolia ( whisch is the traditional Malaysia preparation ) produced using a patented extraction process to isolate and concentrate the bioactive compound. In conclusion, Tongkat Ali, used for centuries in traditional medicine systems of South East Asia for treating lethargy, low libido, depression, and fatique, appears to have significant potential for restoring hormone balance ( cortisol / testosterone ) and improving psychological mood state in humans exposed to various modern stressors, including aging, dieting, and exercise stress.)

 Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia; TA) is known to increase testosterone levels and alleviate aging males’ symptoms. This study aimed at investigating TA as an ergogenic supplement for elderly people. Thirteen physically active male and 12 physically active female seniors (57–72 years) were supplemented with 400-mg TA extract daily for 5 weeks. Standard hematological parameters were taken. In addition, the concentrations of total and free testosterone, dihydroepiandrosterone, cortisol, insulin-like growth factor-1, and sex hormone-binding globulin were analyzed. As additional biochemical parameters, blood urea nitrogen and creatine kinase as parameters of kidney function and muscle damage, respectively, as well as the muscle strength by a simple handgrip test were determined. After treatment, hemoglobin, testosterone, and dihydroepiandrosterone concentrations, and the ratio of total testosterone/cortisol and muscle force remained signif icantly lower in female seniors than in male seniors. Hematocrit and erythrocyte count in male seniors increased slightly but were significantly higher than in female seniors. Treatment resulted in significant increases in total and free testosterone concentrations and muscular force in men and women. The increase in free testosterone in women is thought to be due to the significant decline in sex hormone-binding globulin concentrations. The study affirms the ergogenic benefit of TA through enhanced muscle strength. Copyright © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Summary :- In most countries, millions of people are relying on herbal medicines as remedy for numerous ailments. In South-East Asia, Eurycoma longifolia Jack, also known as ‘Malaysian ginseng’ or Tongkat ali, is used to combat stress and disease and to improve physical strength. Moreover, the compounds of the roots of this plant are reported to have aphrodisiac and testosterone enhancing effects in the rat. Considering that human studies are not available, 76 of 320 patients suffering from late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) were given 200 mg of a standardised water-soluble extract of Tongkat ali for 1 month. The Ageing Males’ Symptoms (AMS) according to the standardised rating scale and the serum testosterone concentration were taken. Results show that treatment of LOH patients with this Tongkat ali extract significantly (P < 0.0001) improved the AMS score as well as the serum testosterone concentration. While before treatment only 10.5% of the patients did not show any complaint according to the AMS scale and 35.5% had normal testosterone levels, after the completed treatment 71.7% and 90.8% of the patients showed normal values, respectively. Thus, Tongkat ali extract appears to be useful as a supplement in overcoming the symptoms of LOH and for the management of hypogonadism.  

In conclusion, the standardised water-soluble extract of Tongkat ali proved to be a suitable herbal supplement in overcoming symptoms of LOH and managing hypogonadism. Similarly, men with other causes of hypogonadism may also benefit by taking the herbal extract as an adjunct to their testosterone replacement therapy to enhance their DHEA. Moreover, a treatment like this may be a reasonable therapy for numerous patients, particularly in Third World or emerging countries as such herbal extracts are often cheaper than Western pharmaceutical medicines. In Malaysia, for instance, the supplement is available in most leading pharmacies and popular as a male health supplement. Yet, randomised placebo-controlled studies investigating the positive effects of Tongkat ali on ageing male well-being including its effects on the prostate are missing in the literature thus far and are currently underway.

 April 2012.


He stares like he’s watching a stripper dance. But he’s in a restaurant, not a gentlemen’s club. A middle-aged Chinese man with a simple white T-shirt and jeans, he’s been spooning his teh tarik while glancing towards the back of the kopitiam for a full minute. A TV show starring the young Sharifah Amani hasn’t caught his eye. He’s taken up by  owner to ask her for a price.visions of small sachets. Indecisive, he wonder if he should beckon the store.

The eatery he’s in, Restoran D’Chow Kit, is famous for three things. One, it’s right in the centre of the infamous Chow Kit Road. A relatively obscure street caught in the maze of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre, how Kit has an almost mythical status for more illicit activities like prostitution and drug peddling. Named after millionaire entrepreneur Loke Chow Kit, the street was immortalised by pop legend Sudirman, whose concert here in 1986 attracted 100,000 people and whose song, “ Chow Kit Road”, contained some ironic observation about being careful when crossing this particular junction.

Di tengah bandaraya walau baik orangnya;
Perlu berhati-hati di tipu pencuri.
Bila melintas jalan jangan sesuka hati;
Ditangkap mata-mata baru padan muka.      

Restoran D’Chow Kit is also known for its Ikan Bakar Menangis, a dish they proudly advertise  on their shop-front signboard. It’s stingray, marinated in liberal doses of sambal and chilli. And while it looks furiously red, its reputation precedes itself and the fish is delicious witout burning the naked tongue. What else is the restaurant known for ? A row of aphrodisiacs that line their back wall.

John-that’s hoe he wants to be addressed-has a reason for gawking. He’s a 50-something Singaporean masseur who’s spent the last 22 years making house-calls to clients in the Lion City, using a combination of the more traditional Swedish stroke with the stretching-style of Thai therapy. A skinny guy who hunches, he swears his hands are strong enough for the job.

“Look at how many clients I have,” he says, flipping through his address book on his iPhone. People come back to him, he says, because he’s always up-to date with the latest in the kneading industry. That’s why he come to KL so often, at least once a month for a few days. He visits massage parlours here to get tips, meet old friends and to try them out for himself. Even the dodgy ones. “Not often. But you know, when they offer extra services. You just...” He stops there and laughs.

What he’s really interested in is the restaurant’s infamous “Wall of Flame”. All kinds of love potions are available here-Kopi Kucing Galak, a drink mix that includes herba kucing galak, a small herb that causes cats to moan after smelling it: kopi Jantan, which literally means “macho man coffee”; goat’s milk, with the curious  image of what looks like Kelantan’s Menteri Besar Nik Abdul Aziz  on the front of every packet. Every product  has one common ingredient : an extract from the popular plant eurycoma longifolia, more commonly known as  tongkat ali.

John’s heading to a nearby massage parlour off Chow Kit Road and he’s wondering if he should try a mix labelled “tongkat ali cappuccino”. “I heard it’s damn good. Very powerful.” “You haven’t tried tongkat ali before?”

“No, but I think I should.” He calls the owner, a lady with bright red liptick. And ask her how much for a sachet. “RM23.” She recommends another product, a VR Cafe coffee mix that contain ginseng and tongkat ali. “Better.”

He thinks for a while. Then he hands over RM50. “Two packets.” As he leaves, Restoran D’Chow Kit’s owner looks at me and a smile inches out. The sachets make for an impressive sight in the restaurant and they’re mostly for display. But there are regular customers who make a pit-stop here before they head to the night market or nearby hotels for an escapade. It’s a tidy side-business she’s running and as they say, location, location, location.

“You want to try?” she dares my manhood. I think for a second and find myself doing the stare. The blood ushed to my head. Maybe.

Save the plants, save the world. The idea that the botany around us holds mystical properties blessed from the heavens have been around since time immemorial. More than 35,000 plant species have reportedly been used all over the world for medical purpose and truth is, that number could be much higher. In 1935, English botanist Isaac Henry Burkill documented no less than 1,300 plants in The Malay Peninsular that have been used in traditional medicine. Our land is fertile with urban legends of leaves that cure malaria and of roots that restore your strength. Above this hierarchy of potent plants lies a small treelet with spirally-arranged leaves, a bitter aftertaste and powers that have aided men’s personal uprising since the early 1900s. It is, after all, Ali’s walking sticks.

Tongkat ali as a sex plant isn’t a news flash. A common herb shrub that can be easily found in rain forests situated in Sabah, Pahang and Malacca, its special place in men’s health was documented as early as the 1930s in the seminal tome The Medical Book of Malayan Medicine. The first official laboratory studies took place between 1980 and 1990, conducted by  researcher at Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang and in Universiti Malaya, showing that tongkat ali could lift testosterone levels and increase fertility in mice.

It took a landmark study in 2001 by a researcher named Dr ismail Tambi to confirm the concupiscence raising qualities of the plant. Thirty married, middle-aged men took 200mg of a tongkat ali extract for three  consecutive weeks and after some time, Ismail noted that 73 percent remarked they felt healthy, active and energised. Sixty-two percent felt an increased sexual desire. All showed a rising free testosterone index. Even their level of DHEA, a critical steroid hormone produced by our adrenal glands-and is also banned as an external dietary supplement for sportsmen by The World Anti- Doping Agency had increased from 26% percent after one week to 47% percent after three.

Science backed up generations of Chinese whispers passed down to indigenous folk to city citizens: tongkat ali fulfils your need for speed and opens the right lane down the sex drive highway.

But what’s not so highly published is the other parts of tongkat ali. How for generations, the Orang Asli believe that the plant’s value goes far beyond just boosting a man’s libido. How scientist have since yielded some surprising findings about the herbs. That, quite possibly, tongkat ali could have intrinsic power to fight malaria, reduce stress, has anti-cancer and pro-fertility properties. In a nutshell, if harnessed correctly, tongkat ali is the miracle plant of the future.

What does that means for the potential of a small believes there’s more than meets the eye. And he’s leading a charge to put tongkat ali on the map as Malaysia’s  natural gift to the world.

Ismail Tambi is a doctor blessed with youth. At 62, he look just a notch over 40, with a fresh complexion and the enthusiasm of men many times younger. At his clinic in Damai Service hospital on Jalan Ipoh, where  he’s the consulting clinical andrologist and also the reproductive and sexual health specialist there, his room is filled with the expected apparatus, including one to test penile strength by pushing tiny cushions labelled “soft”, “medium” and “hard”.

Ismail is somewhat of a tongkat ali evangelist. He first presented a paper on tongkat ali in 1986 for the Asia Pacific Congress of Impotence Research, advocating that natural herbs like this one holds vast possibilities for men’s health. It was his research on the plant that paved its way as a legitimately proven aphrodisiac. If that’s not enough, he would points to himself as living proof that tongkat ali has untapped potential for lifting a man’s overall well-being. He should know-he’s been taking tongkat ali religiously for the last 12 years.

“Except for this bald spot here. Tongkat ali can’t help with bald spot here.” He says, chuckling. For all the aphrodisiac qualities of Tongkat ali , it’s the other findings that has Ismail excited. Take the sport industry, specifically the arena of bodybuilding. Annual sales of bodybuilding supplement in America are reported to be around RM 8 billion, and as you can imagine those numbers are boosted by steroids that have well-documented side effects, and are deemed illegal by most governing bodies, Introduce a natural muscle mass building product that seems safe and it’s like waving low-glucose sugar in front ants.

Enter “longjack”, the term bodybuilder have given to tongkat ali for use in their exercise regimens. In a study conducted in 2000 at Universiti Malaya, 14 healthy adult males were split into two groups and given a daily  tongkat ali extract or a placebo. Both groups performed an intensive strength-training programme and when compared after eight weeks, the bunch taking the extract showed improved body mass index when compared to the other test batch. In short, tongkat ali made them stronger. So it’s no wonder longjack has become a popular import into the US and Canada.

“It’s a bloody huge market,” confirm Ismail. “ One thing as well, we did research on it recently and tongkat ali has the potential to hasten fatigue recovery. You do sports, after the game you feel lethargic, tired. We found that if you take this, you won’t feel it, the aches, the pains.” He points to a 2007 study done at the Liaoning Sport Science and Technology Institute In China, where elderly male cyclists who took a tongkat ali extract found that it facilitates fatigue recovery besides  enhancing free testosterone. Even more pertinently, Ismail points out that the extract has been found to be non-toxic even at high levels of 600mg to the body’s vital functions. In other words, you can’t overdose.

Ismail has also done studies that show tongkat ali ability to treat men with infertility. When 75 patients completed a cycle of regular dosage with the extract, there was significant improvement  in the volume of semen, sperm concentration and the percentage of normal sperm in men with infertility issues. “ it can act like a conductor, like a mandu ( drive ) organising systems in the body to be on place. In fact. I was able to place tongkat ali as an adaptogen , compounds  which  can elevate stress, and give wellness without any side effects. It’s supposed to help balance out the body’s health system as opposed to just putting it in one corner and labelling it an aphrodisiac.”

It would seem that more colleagues in the men’s health community are also seeing the potent benefits of the plant. “ I can confirm what Professor Tambi told you about the benefits of tongkat ali.” says Ralf Henkel, a South African researcher who is the deputy chairperson of the Department of Medical Bioscience at the University of Western Cape. He met him in studying the plant. While he’s generally less effusive and cautions against overhyping the plant’s themselves. “ I see a huge market, as male infertility is generally a globally, totally underestimated public health issue. Globally, 10 to 15 percent of couples suffer from infertility. If we also add the huge numbers of elderly men who suffer from aging male symptoms, which include hypogonadism, erectile dysfunction and fatigue, this will make it worthwhile  to market the product,” he explains.

Did deeper and science is uncovering a wealth of merits to this unassuming plant. A study by the Institute for Medical Research in 2005 confirmed that tongkat ali  could help fight malarial parasites and combat malaria fever. Another one in 2001 showed that the tongkat ali extract could induce apoptosis  of cancer cells, much like in chemotherapy. The Vietnamese name for the plant, cay ba binh, literally means “the remedy for 1,000 diseases”. Put in together and what’s stopping tongkt ali from becoming a super-tonic for the 21st century? Turns out, it starts with the tiny square packets at the back of a restaurant in Chow  Kit.
Take a trip to the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia, more commonly known as FRIM , and you immediately enter one of the best-kept secret in the land. Located in Kepong on the borders of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, the area offers more than 1,520 hectares of untouched forests, gardens, wetlands with trails and a thriving ecosystem that has invigorated early morning joggers for years. It also houses the government agency that researches and promotes the best use of Malaysia’s vast forest resources. There are more than 20 different  research area that occupy different parts of this natural park, each tasked with getting the most out of the country tropical greenery.

Tongkat ali has always been of particular interest to FRIM. Already, annual export of the plant are estimated at RM 100 million and the government plans to make the brand synonymous with country, the way green tea is with Japan. Since 1999, FRIM coordinated research and development on the plant  through a biotech programme that includes local companies and the illustrious Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

But what’s proving to be a huge hindrance has  been the proliferation of fake tongkat ali products on the market. Some estimate that over 80 percent of tongkat ali products sold worldwide are counterfeit, many of them online through eBay or other underground websites. The problem isn’t just over our shorelines. In one FRIM study on 200 samples of tongkat ali coffee , only a handful contained the plant extract.. Even then, the active content inside the drinks  were found to be far too low to be of any benefit. The reason is simple : The pure extract of the plant is bitter. “ Very bitter, If it’s used in large quantities , than the drink will be undrinkable,” says Dr Rasadah Mat Ali, FRIM’s natural product division director.

Ali coffee mixer you see in shops, for the most part, contain too small a dosage of tongkat ali to really be effective. When it comes to a certified,  bona fide tongkat ali product, a water-soluble capsule called “Nu-Prep” produced by Biotropics Malaysia Berhad, a government-linked corporation ( and FRIM ‘s own bottles ) remains one of the most legitimate way to get a true-blue tongkat ali experience. But a bottle of 60 Nu-Prep pills cost RM 160 from pharmacies and customers looking for one will find cheaper alternative from peddlers on the street, or in kopitiam  dotted across the landscape.

Ismail acknowledge that a lot of the supposed tongkat ali supplements outside are, by and large contaminated. “ People think that tongkat ali is great for sex and if they can get something that mimics it. That can produce the expected result without knowing how  or what’s inside, then they’ll still go for it.” Among the most popular ways of creating a dubious substitute is to mix small dosage of tongkat ali root powder and a PDE5 inhibitor drug, like Viagra. Some add ash, stearic  acid and even some form of steroid to achieve the same effects, with dangerous consequence, “ If someone is not healthy, has heart problem, or other medicinal issues that put him in the gigh-risk bracker, taking something that isn’t tongkat ali might cause a fatality,” says Ismail.

The counterfeits are even more prevalent on-line, where there are less checks and balance required to sell these tongkat ali variants. Some have taken it upon themselves to educate buyers, including Serge Kreutz, a 60-something online write who  takes particular interest in uncovering scams on the internet. Attempts to uncover his background hit a brick wall-he refuse to divulge personal details- but he’s been passionately exposing cyber-fakes for years.”I have been writing about quackery long before I wrote about tongkat ali, and more aggressively. For example , the worldwide multivitamin hoax, or the Atkins nonsense, or PayPal banking, or e-gold scams. It’s very long list of topics and it goes back 40 years,’ he says.

His website,, has over 100 articles on various internet scams, most of it related to enhancing a man’s Eros. Many of them detail tongkat ali and how it has helped his own sex life-he’s been taking it for around 15 years-and how to avoid the phonies that flood the market. One issue, for example, is the use of stearic acid with some bogus tongkat ali products. “ Most stearic acid used in supplement is made from dead animal parts, many in a state of decay. The cheaper stearic acid comes  from China and is marketed throughout the world. It’s very uncontrolled.” It would be of particular importance to Muslim as this could possible be non-halal in nature. “ Those who fake tongkat ali by adding illegal substances, who fake labels, who fake ingredients claims, are unlikely to have qualms when it comes to printing halal on the label. You may want to bring staeric acid to the attention of ulama councils’” he adds.

But efforts are made to help curb the export of fake tongkat ali within our borders. The National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau has managed to register around 277 products with tongkat ali and there’s hope that the accessibility of the plant extract will cause people with an urge to turn away from fakes. Ismali himself is trying to combat the scourge with more research, including a study into producing a tasteless tongkat ali extract that could, if it enters mass production, revolutionise the drink mix tongkat ali market. “ It has so much potential, and not just as an aphrodisiac. It has anti-aging elements: it’s supposed to interrupt the free radical cycle. It just works.” Even FRIM is getting into the action, putting into motion studies on the energy-boosting properties of tongkat ali and its potential in the sporting ring. “ The studies are looking positive and interesting so far,” says Rasadah. Once the community is in agreement on the potent possibilities, there’s no telling where the path for Malaysia’s ubiquitous healing plant might go. Beyond the confines of bedroom walls and seedy hotels chains. Beyond the back wall of a coffee shop downtown KL.

He stares like she’s watching a kid at a toy shop. She watches as I hold an internal debate. Maybe. Maybe not.

I sahke my head and walk out without looking back. He shop owner bids me farewell, a cheeky smiles still present. You’ll be back, she’s thinking. They always come back.

Shame, because the sun was burning and I had a throbbing headache. My tongue hurt. I was going to get a parking ticket. So I’ll be damned if I didn’t find a pharmacy and buy myself a packet of Panadol.

NOT THAT POTENT – Little health benefits in Tongkat Ali Drinks
There is too little Tongkat Ali herb extract in most coffee products to enable such drinks to have  ANY HEALTH BENEFITH OR EXTRA NUTRITION as claimed by their manufacturers.
Berita harian, front page report, said a Forest Research Institute of Malaysia ( FRIM ) study 10 popular Tongkat Ali coffee drinks, 7 of them contained only 0.25% to 1.6%  of herbal extract & WAS NO SUFFICIENT TO BENEFIT ONE’S HEALTH.

The active content was only between 0.0039%  &  0.0246%  ( 7.8 nano gram to ng ) WAS FAR TOO LOW FOR IT TO BE BENEFICIAL.

To get nutrients from Tongkat Ali needed to take at least 1 mg of its active  ingredient for every kilo of body weight of no exceeding 3 mg for every kilo of body weight daily. Example, if a person weight to 80 kg, he would have to take a minimum of 80 mg Tongkat Ali daily to enjoy it benefit.


Health Ministry to set minimum content for Tongkat Ali Drinks.
Once the standard are set, manufacture could be charged if their products did not have, the required level of the Tongkat Ali, which contain Tongkat Ali aphrodisiac qualities.
( Analysis by the Ministry, Universities & FRIM showed that Tongkat Ali contain is at a minimal level in many drinks & did  not have any effect at all for the consumer )

Health Ministry will set a minimum content under Trade Description Act – will discuss it with the Domestic Trade & Consumer.

Beware of wonder cures

Herbal supplements are not always beneficial to health.

KASMIAH MUSTAPHA looks into the safety aspects to their use
When it comes to herbal supplements, people are known to rely on hearsay rather than scientific proof of their efficacy. For instance, they believe that products with Tongkat Ali can increase the male libido, ginkgo will improve memory and black cohosh  relieve menopausal symptoms.

Cashing in on these beliefs, some companies manufacture product which supposedly contain these herbs – such as Tongkat Ali coffee, juice and water.
In most cases, however, the products do not contain the herbal ingredient but drugs or other types of stimulants instead. While the consumer may not experience drastic reactions to the products immediately, in the long run, they can cause serious health problems.

The Health Ministry recently raided a company that was producing coffee mixed with the controlled drug tadalafil. The manufacturer claims the coffee contains herbal and organic extracts which boots men’s sexual functions. Tadalafil is an oral drug used to treat importance. However. There are serious side effects if patients take it for long periods of time, without a doctor’s prescription. They may suffer from sudden loss of vision, chest pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, irregular heartbeat, swelling in hands, ankles, or feet, shortness of breath and seizures (convulsions).

UNIVERSITI SAINS MALAYSIA (USM) SCHOOL OF MEDICAL SCEINCES DEPUTY DEAN ASSOC PROF DR SHAIFUL BAHARI ISMAIL says consumers have to make sure that the herbal supplements they are taking are GENUINE, backed by scientific evidence.”The study should show the products are safe and efficacious. They also must not contain any other unknown ingredient. It is best to talk to your doctor before taking any herbal supplement,” he advises.
Dr Shaiful, who is also a family physician, also advise patients to check the scientific background of the products and ensure the active ingredient is not combined with other potentially harmful ingredients.

“We have heard stories of herbal products combined with dangerous ingredients, such as sex stimulants. This can cause side effects and at times, death. So if a patient wants to take coffee that is said to contain Tongkat Ali or other herbs, I will ask the patient if there is a study done on the product. If there is none, I will tell him not to take it.
“Some of the products contain probably only 0.001 per cent of the herbal extract and the rest are drugs. Some contain a high dosage of drugs which can cause problems. Those with a good appetite and who take a balanced diet with good amounts of carbohydrate, proteins and minerals need not take any supplement, including herbals.”
Dr Shaiful and a team from UNIVERSITI SAINS MALAYSIA ( USM ) conducted a study on the use of Tongkat Ali as a herbal supplement for the improvement of men’s sexual well-being. The study was sponsored by Biotropics Malaysis Berhad, manufacturer of Nu-Prep, a herbal supplement with a Tongkat Ali water soluble extract.
The 109 men in the study were given the product and a placebo. The study found that there was improvement in sexual well-being, energy and physical functioning after being on the product for 12 weeks.
“I cannot claim that there has been no scientific study on Tongkat Ali before but the study that I conducted using water extract Tongkat Ali is among the first in the country that looks at men’s quality of life and sexual well-being.
‘Based on the 12-week period, we can say that it is safe to use the product for a short term, but we cannot be certain of the same effect if people use it for longer than that.”
Tongkat Ali or Eurycoma Longifolia is a plant famous for its male aphrodisiac properties. However, it is also used for treatment of aches, persistent fever, malaria, dysentery, glandular swelling, bleeding ( as a coagulant), edema, hypertension, syphilitic sores, and ulcers.

Biotropics director of business development, sales and maeketing Siti Nooruhani Ibrahim says the stady was commissioned mainly to confirm and ensure the product is safe.
We need scientific proof that Nu-Prep is safe and effective. We cannot just tell consumers without having the proof to support our claims. We know for centuries that people have been using Tongkat Ali because of its health properties. So we wanted to put the science in the traditional practice.

“Our products are manufactured using the latest technology to ensure they are safe and follow standards. We will continue to do scientific studies on our products to back our claims of their effects. This will keep us ahead of our competitors,”

She says Nu-Prep, which has been in the market for five years, is also distributed to United States and Hong Kong. Nu Prep Tongkat Ali freeze dried extract is powdered and encapsulated to ensure the biologically active components’ therapeutic values are maintained. The company also produces other herbal products including Nu-Famme Kacip Fatimah.

Malaysia’s only clinical andrologist, Dr Mohd Ismail Mohd Tambi, is a doctor, friend and confidant to the thousands of patients with manhood woes.

The man doctor

Malaysia’s only clinical andrologist, Dr Mohd Ismail Mohd Tambi, is a doctor, friend and confidant to the thousands of patients with manhood woes.
Touch it and tell me what you think,” Dr Mohd Ismail Mohd Tambi asks me, placing a chart with four blue “bubbles” in front of me.
He grins impishly while I squirm in my seat.

“Go ahead. You’re not shy, are you? Don’t be shy. It won’t bite!” he encourages, sensing my embarrassment.
I blame my bashfulness on my conservative Asian upbringing.
Samuel the photographer, stifling a giggle, looks away.
Dr Mohd Ismail is holding up the Erection Grading Chart, which comes in four grades of “hardness”. I take a deep breath, swallow and hastily run my fingers over the four little bubbles.

“What do you think?” he asks.
Unsure how to respond, I tell him that I think nothing except that grade four is the hardest. He lets out a laugh.
“All the men who come in here will say they are a grade four but their partners will say they are a grade one or two,” he says. “That’s men! You can call it ego, but for men, having the capacity to make love is a manly thing. If they suffer, everyone around them suffers because they’re shy about getting help.”
As Malaysia’s only clinical andrologist (someone who specialises in male reproductive problems), Dr Mohd Ismail, 60, is a doctor, friend and confidant to the thousands of patients with erectile dysfunction (ED) problems. But no, not all his patients are men — about 30% are female who come to ask for help for their husbands.
The main grouse among men is that they cannot maintain their erection, and that is an early sign of ED, he notes. In the past, most of his patients were above 45 but of late, the age is getting younger.
“I get guys in their 80s who really take care of their health but have ED problems. But I also get the younger men who are in their 20s and might be a little obese or have lifestyle issues.
Nowadays, with peer pressure, the youngsters are clubbing, smoking, drinking and taking drugs, which affects their sexual health,” explains Dr Mohd Ismail.
“This is something disturbing but the mentality is changing in line with development. I’m even getting those who are not married coming to me. ED cuts across all ages, marital status and culture.”
The main causes of ED are multifaceted and include age and hormonal problems while secondary causes include a lack of strength and stamina. Despite help and information being available, men, especially the older ones, don’t want to see a doctor. Some may turn up at Dr Mohd Ismail’s clinic and chicken out at the last minute.
They would rather ask their friends to go, and the issue then becomes part of a conversation at the coffeeshop. Or they resign themselves to the fact that they’re no longer manly, and this puts a strain on the relationship with their spouse.
“However, there is also another group that will die without lovemaking and will go all out to discover ways to improve their manhood. If they’re old, I ask them to bring their wives along because sexuality is still very important to them. Most people can be helped.”
When Viagra was introduced to Malaysians on April 1, 1999, it was no April Fool’s joke. Although it was initially intended for those with heart ailments, researchers discovered it caused an erection and, subsequently, it became an oral tablet for those with ED. Men were delighted.
“In fact, Viagra’s discovery was a blessing. It’s more of a miracle than the discovery of the Pill,” reckons Dr Mohd Ismail.
In 2000, a new drug called Cialis entered the market and later, Levitra was introduced. Two months ago, a more enhanced drug called Zydena hit the local market as the latest treatment for sexual impotency.
“With Cialis, you don’t have to plan lovemaking whereas with Viagra, once you take it, you must have a go. With Levitra, there are side effects but with Zydena, you can take it with other medication. The side effects are minimal and usually, the man will experience flushes or a feeling of being flustered. I know because I try all the drugs before I recommend them to my patients. I may look young but I’m not!” reveals the chatty doctor, who looks no more than 45.
The drugs are getting better over the years, thanks to new research. These drugs are not meant to enhance the user’s sexual desire, but address the physical incapability to have sex. Hence, Dr Mohd Ismail is careful about prescribing it — usually only after he has examined the patient thoroughly. People with heart problems invariably have ED because blood does not flow freely to all parts of the body.
He says, “The ED drugs are here to stay, and it’s a choice men have. Most of the time, our Malaysian men prefer to go to the bomoh for a remedy because they believe someone has put a charm or curse on them. But we know it’s a medical problem, not black magic.”
Dr Mohd Ismail keeps his phone line open all the time and, yes, there are men who call him in the middle of the night to tell him if the drug worked. These are either ecstatic or frustrated.
“I become their sex therapist over the phone!” he jokes.
Dr Mohd Ismail got interested in andrology when he was serving the government in the 80s. At the time, there was a need to advise men on fertility issues but the only specialists available were obstetricians and gynaecologists who catered more to women.
“Fertility is very much a couple issue but back then, men didn’t know where to go for help because there was none available.”
So, when his then boss suggested he study andrology, Dr Mohd Ismail pursued a World Health Organisation research fellowship in clinical andrology and semenology and headed to Australia.
“It was such an interesting course because I learnt a lot about myself. I spent three months looking at sperm cells until every time I close my eyes, all I could see were sperms running everywhere,” he says, poker-faced.
Samuel and I burst out laughing.
Now he has all kinds of posters and contraptions in his office.
“I even have an artificial vulva. You want to see it?” he suddenly asks, catching me off guard. I shake my head and reply no.
“Why not? It’s good for you to know,” he says and proceeds to dig into a drawer to bring out the object.
“Believe it or not, I have to give couples total lessons. Some of them have never consummated their marriage because the wife is scared to make love and, over time, the man cannot get his little brother up. And these are university graduates who are ignorant about sexuality.
“That’s when I have to show them parts of the artificial anatomy, make them touch it, feel it, etc. Sex has an emotional element. If the emotion is shaken, then you can’t do it. You must have fun out of it, not fear it.”
Dr Mohd Ismail laments that most young people have fallen prey to the “dual-pay, no-sex syndrome”, as in Singapore. They are so busy servicing loans, and when they do have a little time, they’d rather be playing video games or sleep than make love. Hence, the birth rates are affected.
“It’s getting worse,” he says, cringing at the thought. “Anyone who comes here for fertility problems, I ask them point-blank how many times a week they have sex. If you don’t have sex, how can you get pregnant?”
At the same time there are also teens getting pregnant and dumping their babies. Dr Mohd Ismail questions the establishment of the school for pregnant teens.
“What kind of syllabus are they teaching? What happens to the mother after delivery? I think more research should have been done,” he says.
The good doctor believes sex education begins at home, and parents should talk about relationships and the different kinds of love there are. The rest can be obtained from formal education or the net.
“Growing up, I was ignorant too. I didn’t know women didn’t have anything dangling between their legs until I was about eight or 10. I only knew when I peeped at my aunt when she was in the toilet, and I became curious. Most of the time, I got information from my friends.”
“Of course, ever since then, I have been peeping at everyone and everything. It’s part of my job!” he jokes.
And it’s a job he loves incredibly.
“So far, there’s no one I haven’t been able to help,” Dr Mohd Ismail says proudly.
