Local Aphrodisiac - Mas Cotek

female species with 3 black dots

Nature is truly amazing..... and thanks to the wisdom of our elders who discovered the many cures in wild plants when modern medicine was not available.

In Southeast Asia, this Mas Cotek (Ficus Deltoidea) is used in traditional Malay healing preparations. As a drink, it is believed to be good for reducing blood sugar level, regulating blood pressure. It also reduces joints and nerves pains; cholesterol and removes toxins in our bodies.

For the women after birth, it aids womb contraction.

The next function makes our eyes grow big : Increasing and recovering sexual desire

It's an Aphrodisiac. A local version of viagra or tongkat Ali. lol


This plant has male and female versions. The female species is characterised by its larger leaves and by the presence of three black dots on the back of its leaves. The male species has only two black dots on the back of its leaves.

Every one became interested in mas cotek. :D

I'm not sharing the prescription here..... in case the wild Mas Cotek in Singapore go bald. lol

  3. Don't worry about the mas cotek going bald. I'm sure there are other plants that have such properties too eg. the tongkat ali.
