Minyak Gamat Langkawi – Langkawi Sea Cucumber
The Malay word gamat means sea cucumber and it refers to medicinal remedies made from any of several species of the animal. The golden sea cucumber (Stichopus horrens) is commonly used. Gamat is usually the dried, powdered bodies of sea cucumbers made into a lotion or other topical salve. It is sometimes mixed into clay and applied as a facial mask, or put in tea and consumed for stomach complaints. Users believe that a solution of sea cucumbers can heal cuts, skin eruptions, and ulcers, and claim that it has a beneficial effect on the immune system. Click Here

What Is Gamat ( Sea Cucumber ) ?
Gamat Emas is rather a more interesting marine sea cucumber, which can rarely be seen in the open seabed. Although can be classified under holothurians, unlike most of the sea cucumber, this marine species is very rich in mucopolysaccharides and chondoritins and other soft tissues resembling soft cartilage, explaining for the facts that it melts when exposed to the sunlight.

Our analysis also shows that it is rich in other natural nutrients such as protein, vitamins A and C, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, iron, manganese, calcium, magnesium and zinc.Gamat Emas is widely known among the Malays in Malaysia as a wound healing. Villagers wonder of nature and reaping its benefits; obviously firm believers that gamat emas is the perfect remedy for cuts, sores and inflammation.The research on 'air gamat' - the name for the water extract derived from the golden sea cucumber of Malaysia took a long time to materialize. Locals have used this marine substance for about 500 years. In fact, Malays swear by the usage of air gamat as a remedy for cuts, peptic ulcers, chest pain, sores and inflammation.After 10 years of research in University of Malaya and the Japanese Universities, we have now discovered the active substance and the mechanisms of its actions.

Beside it's proven efficiency in enhancing the body's resistance towards various diseases, from common flu to more problematic conditions, including diabetes, cancer, it is also known that it contains a cell growth factor which has the ability to accelerate the regeneration of biological cells, bone, collagen and rejuvenates skin. We have now refined the extract and come up with new generations of scientifically prepared products based on this purified polypeptide substance.
