Can I Take Tongkat Ali Without The Capsule?

The short answer is yes; the contents of the capsules are safe to drink or eat raw, although 1:200 Standardized Tongkat Ali extract is extremely bitter tasting.

Although you are safe to consume the raw Tongkat Ali extract without the XTR DRS capsule, many of the active compounds that make up Tongkat Ali extract are acid sensitive. Therefore, it is recommended to use the Duration Release capsule that is designed to safely transport the contents of the capsule past the stomach acid to the intestine for digestion.
