Buying tongkat ali? Better be careful with your health

Our company, Sumatra Pasak Bumi, is a government-supervised facility, authorized to sell herbals with medical applications.

In particular, our 1:200 Indonesian tongkat ali extract has undergone a licensing process that has taken years to complete, first between 2000 and 2005, and again after 2015, when the Indonesian government implemented new, very strict regulations. See below the latest license for our 1:200 tongkat ali extract. It is issued by the Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan, the Indonesian equivalent of the American FDA. In Indonesia, this Nomor POM is colloquially still referred to by the previous of such a license, Nomor Depkes (an acronym for Departemen Kesehatan = Department of Health).

For us, the number of tests and studies necessary to obtain a Nomor POM has run into hundreds of thousands of US dollars.

Should you care?

Yes, because this licensing process is for YOUR health and safety. We wouldn't spend hundreds of thousands of US dollars on licenses and lab testing and then sell you some junk. We sell what we have been licensed to sell. Genuine Indonesian 1:200 tongkat ali extract.

Anybody else can easily set up a website claiming to be a tongkat ali or herbals company. They can also claim to sell 1:200 tongkat ali extract... presumably the same extract that we produce, and for which we hold a government license. However, any tongkat ali product that is branded 1:200, but not produced by us, is simply a fake. Be especially suspicious of spam that emphasizes "natural" in their naming.

Any scammer in a rented flat can claim (and they do claim) to be the world's number 1 supplier of tongkat ali... or to offer the best tongkat ali for the last decade.

I am sure, you have come across such lines.

All bullshit.

The two worst tongkat ali scammers (one is Chinese, one is Arabic Spanish) are run out of flats in Singapore. Another is Scottish. Check their contact-us pages.

Because Singapore has such a miserable reputation as the world's fake medicine hub, Singaporean scammers have set up company fronts in the USA, which is easy to do and costs almost nothing. They have also joined some herbals groupings to obtain graphics that look like seals of approval.

Do you really want to entrust your health, your safety, and your life with scammers? Then buy their wares which may be tongkat ali or not even tongkat ali at all. Even if these wares contain tonkat ali plant parts, it's never, never 1:200.

If you care for your health, and so you should, ask those who offer Indonesian tongkat ali on the web for a Nomor POM (the permit number from the Indonesian Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan... the equivalent of the US FDA). They will give you loads of excuses why they don't have on. Of course they talk a lot.

The bottom line is: if an Internet operation can't be bothered to get their product tested by government laboratories, don't put your health into their hands (or their purse).
