Malaysian Red Ginseng aka Red Tongkat Ali (scientific name: Jackiopsis ornata) is a rare tree found growing along rivers, sandy or swampy soil in virgin rainforests up to 400 metres altitude in Peninsular Malaysia. Also known as Akar Haji Samad amongst Malay herbalists, the root of this tree has been used by all the indigenous races for relieving joint pains, back ache and for enhancing energy and sexual potency.
The advantage of Red Tongkat Ali over yellow Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) is that it has a pleasant ginseng-like taste and hence it is also being promoted as “Red Malaysian Ginseng”. Each attractive box contains 50 grams of Red Tongkat Ali slices.
This can be enjoyed as a tea by simply adding 3-4 small slices to a cup of hot water or 6-8 slices to a pot and let steep for 3 minutes. For a stronger brew, boil for several minutes. Try adding a slice of lemon or lime and sweeten to taste if desired. Alternately, add to your favourite herbal soup recipe.
Each attractive box contains 50grams of vacuum packed Red Tongkat Ali wild root slices.
