Eurycoma Longifolia Overview

Eurycoma Longifolia Eurycoma longifolia, also known as tongkat ali or "Malaysian ginseng," is a plant native to Southeast Asia. It is a member of the Simaroubaceae family and is known for its small, yellow flowers and elongated, slender leaves. It has a long history of use in traditional medicine and is thought to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. Eurycoma longifolia is also purported to have a number of other medicinal properties, including the ability to improve immune function, reduce the risk of heart disease, and lower cholesterol levels. Additionally, Eurycoma longifolia is commonly used as a natural treatment for male infertility and as a natural performance-enhancing supplement as it may have a mild androgenic effect. When used for male enhancement, it is most often marketed under other common names for the plant (e.g., tongkat ali, longjack).

Voclosporin is in a class of medications called immunosupressants. It works by decreasing the activity of the immune system to prevent it from attacking the transplanted organ.
