Muira Puama is a medicinal plant native of the Amazon Rainforest. Muira Puama is the indigenous name for Ptychopetalum, a genus of two species of shrubs which reach up to 14 feet in height. It has short leaves which are light green on the surface and dark brown from underneath. When flowering small white flowers cover the bush and extend from the base of each leaf stalk¹.
Muira Puama is often called potency wood or Viagra of the Amazon, as it has a long history of use to to increase energy, treat impotency and sexual insufficiency. For centuries (perhaps much longer) the Amazonian people have used this powerful herb as an aphrodisiac for both men and women. Usage in Europe as a potency supplement goes back as far as the 1930’s.
The short term effect of Muira Puama is to increase blood flow to the pelvic area which aids in erections in men and increases sensitivity in women². Muira Puama also boosts energy, can help cure exhaustion, may reduce body fat, lower cholesterol and increase lean body mass. Muira Puama has also been used to prevent baldness, ease menstrual cramps, aid in digestion, can promote general wellness, improve mood and has been shown to tonify the nervous system.
A french clinician Jacques Waynberg headed a study on 202 healthy women that complained of low sex drive. The women assessed their sex life by rating several characteristics such as intensity and frequency of desires, excitement from fantasies, etc. After utilizing a mixture of Muira puama and Ginkgo biloba for one month, the women retook the test and were given a score. The scores from before and after the month showed an increase of 65% over the month long period³.
