How does it work?
The long and fibrous root is the primary component of the tree that is used for these effects. The root of Tongkat Ali is loaded with various nutrients, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that all work together to provide many of the incredible effects of this herb upon consumption. The primary active constituents are considered to be a group of compounds called quaddinoids. Tongkat Ali also contains various triterpenes, eurycolactones, and glycosaponins.

How to take it?
Our tinctures contain 40% grain alcohol in order to preserve the quality of the solution. Since alcohol can have a rather offensive taste, we have a number of suggestions for how to ingest this:
Place the drops directly under the tongue and chase with a small glass of water, juice, or any other fluid that may taste more pleasant
Place the drops directly in an ounce or so of water or other fluid and drink that
If serving to children under the age of 21, or if you want to avoid the harsh taste of the alcohol, you can either let the tincture sit out or heat it up on very low heat, until the alcohol evaporates (the alcohol evaporates faster than water)
About our tinctures:
Personal Health Shop tinctures are a great alternative to herbal teas, capsules, and pills. They are fast-acting and last for years when stored properly. We pride ourselves on selling the highest quality tinctures available. We use only the finest, highest quality herbs from reputable growers all over the world.
Personal Health Shop tinctures contain 40% grain alcohol, rather than what has become the industry standard of 30% or less (watch out for companies that list it as 50 proof, that just means it contains 25% alcohol). Alcohol is what ensures that each tincture is completely sterile and free of any bacteria, spores, or microbes. We also use high-quality extracts instead of actual plant material to maximize the concentration of the solutions and minimize the amounts of plant material floating in each tincture.
Other suppliers claim to use large quantities of plant material, but they do not specify whether it is fresh or dry. Fresh plant material contains 80% or more water by weight. We exclusively use dehydrated plant materials to ensure potency, purity, and reliability of strength. We are confident that we provide the highest quality tinctures available. If you are not 100% satisfied with your order, we will either give you a replacement or a full refund.
Our tinctures are stored in amber brown glass Boston Round bottles with glass droppers (8 oz size does not come with a dropper) attached and sealed with perforated shrink bands to ensure the purity and quality of the product. Orders are shipped within 1-3 business days through USPS First Class or USPS First Class International.
