In April 2016, we have obtained new high-pressure extraction equipment. It allows for the extraction of tongkat ali non-cellulose constituents at room temperature. The old extraction technology required higher temperatures.
The new extraction technology results in extracts being of a lighter color. About two thirds of consumers prefer the extract produced with the new technology. But others tend to have better results with the more traditional extraction method.
On the new extraction method, we receive more reports of tongkat ali causing agitation.
Anyway, we offer all extracts in both versions, high-pressure extracted and extracted at lower pressure.
We request that buyers who prefer the older extraction method to indicate this when they order, otherwise we ship the high-pressure extracted tongkat ali.
