Chemical composition[edit]

Eurycoma longifolia has been reported to contain the compounds eurycomanol, eurycomanone, and eurycomalactone.[12]


The plant is used in the traditional medicine of Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam. In Indonesia and Malaysia, the root of the plant is boiled in water, and the water is consumed as a health tonic for post-partum recovery, as an aphrodisiac, as well as the relief of fever, intestinal worms, dysentery, diarrhoea, indigestion, and jaundice.[12] In Vietnam, the flower and fruits are used to treat dysentery,[12] and the root is used to treat malaria and fever.[13] In Malaysia, a paste of the plant is applied topically to relieve headaches and stomach-aches.[12]

In modern times, E. longifolia is generally known as an aphrodisiac.[12][14][15] Other health benefits attributed to this plant include antimalarial, antidiabetic, antimicrobial, and antipyretic activities.[16] There has been some scientific research carried out on E. longifolia towards analyzing its benefits.

In Indonesia and Malaysia, E. longifolia has been widely commercialized. Its root, which is highly bitter,[14] has been used as the basis for supplements, as well as food and drink additives. As a supplement, it has been marketed for the supposed benefits of sexual health improvement, as an energy and stamina booster, for improving blood circulation,[12] and as a testosterone booster.[17][18] In the drinks market, it is a common ingredient for coffee and functional beverages positioned as energy drinks.

Commercialization issues[edit]

Adulteration and contamination[edit]

There have been a number of cases of products falsely claiming to contain E. longifolia as an ingredient, as well as E. longifolia product contamination cases. Examples are listed below.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has banned numerous products such as Libidus,[19] claiming to use E. longifolia as principal ingredient, but which instead are concoctions designed around illegal prescription drugs, or even worse, analogues of prescription drugs that have not even been tested for safety in humans, such as acetildenafil.[20] In February 2009, the FDA warned against almost 30 illegal sexual enhancement supplements,[21] but the names of these products change quicker than the FDA can investigate them. Libidus, for example, is now sold as Maxidus, still claiming E. longifolia as the principal ingredient.[22] In relation to such tactics, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration preventive measures taken in 2008 saw the seizure of more than 14,000 dosages of products originating from China under multiple names.[23]

In Malaysia, there are over 200 registered E. longifolia products, but when quality tested, one study determined that 36% were contaminated with mercury beyond legally permitted limits.[24][25] The Malaysian government has also banned numerous fake products which use drugs such as sildenafil citrate instead of tongkat ali in their capsules. To avoid being hurt by bad publicity on one product name, those who sell fake tongkat ali have resorted to using many different names for their wares.[26]

A number products claiming to contain Tongkat Ali have been warned against on LegitScript, the only independent institution endorsed by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to verify whether websites selling medications and herbal supplements conform to the consumer health and safety standards of the NABP. Websites who do not conform to these standards are flagged as a warning to the public. [27] As not conforming to NABP standards, LegitScript has flagged XP Tongkat Ali Supreme,[28] Tongkat Ali Super Power,[29] SD-200 (Singapore),[30] and Indonesia Tongkat Ali manufactured by Real Herbs (Singapore)[31]

In February 2015, the New York Times and Washington Post reported that the New York attorney general examined major brand supplements and found them to be mostly fillers.[32]


Products stating various E. longifolia extract ratios of 1:60, 1:200, and 1:600 are common on the market. However extracts based on this ratio system are often misleading and hard to verify. Scientific research done on herbal products in general indicates that in many cases the content of bioactive constituents varies between products.[33][34] One perception is that a higher extraction ratio indicates a stronger product, but higher extract ratio just means that more of the original material was removed. Another option is for extraction techniques to utilize standardization methods to monitor the bioactive content and quality of the extract against standardization markers. Among standardization markers that have been used for E. longifolia are eurycomanone, total protein, total polysaccharide and glycosaponin, which have been recommended in a technical guideline developed by the Scientific and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM).[35]


A water extract has been copatented by the government of Malaysia and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology[36] for sexual dysfunction and male infertility. A polar organic solvent have also been patented with approximately similar claims.[37] Other patents in relation to tongkat ali have also been filed which claims use for maintaining anabolic hormone profile during weight loss and intense exercise.[38]

However, the idea that products of nature on which exist a large body of knowledge among indigenous peoples can be the subject of intellectual property rights, even of national governments, has long been challenged in peer-reviewed law journals.[39]

Conservation and sustainability[edit]

E. longifolia is mainly used for its roots, which necessitates uprooting the entire plant when it is harvested. This has led to concerns over the long-term sustainability of its use.[40][41]

In Malaysia, E. longifolia has been listed as one of the priority medicinal species for conservation, and the harvesting of wild trees is restricted according to Act 686 on International Trade in Endangered Species.[42][43][44] In 2016, Ahmad Shabery Cheek, the Malaysian Minister of Agriculture, said that the species may go extinct within twenty years if cultivation and replanting efforts are not made quickly.[45]Despite this, the Malaysian government has encouraged the commercialization of high-value herbal products based on this plant,[46] notably in its 2010 Economic Transformation Programme, where Tongkat Ali is listed among the top five herbs to be developed on a large scale.[47] To support this commercialization, the Malaysian government made attempts to encourage the long-term commercial cultivation of the plant, through the provision of grants for farmers, enabling agronomy research by MARDI, and the formation of cluster farms under the East Coast Economic Region.[48]
