Would you believe if we tell you that the famous Tungkat Ali in Malaysia is growing wild in a mountain in Palawan? Yes, it is the very same plant in Malaysia that is reputed to have aphrodisiac attributes.
Now, one company is planting about six hectares to Tungkat Ali in Palawan. In six years, we were told, the plants will be harvested and the Tungkat Ali extract will be taken from the roots. They hope to come up with a drink with a “kick”, whatever that means. Of course we are not at liberty to disclose the mountain where Tungkat Ali is growing wild.
