Latin Name: Jackiopsis ornata
Malaysian Red Ginseng aka Red Tongkat Ali 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 Samadamongst 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”.
