Aphrodisiac and Other Health Benefits of Damiana

It is an indisputable fact that modern medicine is at constant development and improvement. Nevertheless, it is not always able to solve some health problems. In this case we should remember our nature that is a rich source of precious and effective remedies. Damiana herb is one of the drugs, created by the Nature.

Since ancient times Damiana has been used as an aphrodisiac (an agent that arouses sexual desire) by the Mayan tribes. The herb’s aphrodisiac properties were first mentioned in the official medicinal literature approximately 100 years ago. Damiana is supposed to increase libido. Thus, it improves sexual potency in men and women, as well as positively influences the functioning of the reproductive system. The herb’s active components have the ability to widen blood vessels, thus relieving symptoms of impotence and providing hard and stable penis erection in men.

Unfortunately, we have not much evidence on Damiana aphrodisiac properties. There is only one serious study that proves the suggestions. This study was conducted by Italian scientists in 1999. They gave a portion of Damiana to two groups of rats – sexually potent and sexually impotent. As a result, Damiana extract made sexually impotent rats more active and had no influence on sexually potent rats.

Besides its use as an aphrodisiac, Damiana has a wide range of other applications. First of all, it is used as a general tonic to give energy and strength, to boost the immune system. The herb is also effective for women during menopause. Its active phytochemicals regulate the level of female hormones and control hot flashes.

Damiana is also known as a good antidepressant. It has the ability to calm and balance nervous system, as well as to relieve depression and anxiety signs. The herb extract may be used as a nervous system tonic. Moreover, the herb may have positive results in treating mood disorders (hypochondria, obsessive compulsive disorder, neurosis, paranoia, etc).

Some specialists consider Damiana to be helpful in the treatment of diabetes. The herb’s hypoglycaemic properties were documented by Mexican scientists in 1984. The studies demonstrated that giving Damiana leaf infusion might reduce blood sugar (glucose) level. The studies were not verified in vivo. We need more researches to avoid controversy.

It should be mentioned that Damiana demonstrates antibacterial effects due to its chemical composition. It may be also used as a mild laxative. This herb is applied in the treatment of digestion problems and constipation.

There is no doubt that Damiana is a precious gift of the nature. Provided that more research data is available, Damiana may become widely used in traditional medicine to treat many illnesses and diseases.

damiana is potent and strong and should be smoked in moderation, because the natural form of the plant containscyanogenic glycoside which when crushed or ground up makes hydrogen cyanide.

Indeed, damiana not only increases my sexual appetite, but ensures a hard and stable penis as well as builds my semen to unbelievable levels. I drink about a cup of herbal infusion, made with boiling water, once a day. The longer the herb sits in the water, the stronger the tisane.
