Muira Puama Extract (Ptychopetalum olacoides) 8 fl oz: HH

Effectively used as a thick boiled alcohol decoction (tincture), not as a tea. Muira puma has a long history in Amazonia as an aphrodisiac, and as a tonic for the nervous and gastrointestinal systems. Muira puama is also helpful with rheumatic problems. In 1925, a pharamacological study was published on muira puama which indicated it effectiveness in treating disorders of the nervous system and sexual impotency which indicated that 'permanent effect is produced in locomotor ataxia, neuralgias of long standing, chronic rheumatism, and partial paralysis.' The active bark constituents are not water soluble, nor are they broken down in the digestive process. For human consumption, Muira puama's unque chemistry is, literally, best boiled in booze – for at least 20 minutes. The contemporary British Herbal Pharmacopoeia recommends Muira puama for dysentery and impotence. It has been in the Brazilian Pharmacopeia since the 1950's. Two recent human trials in France have shown 'a dynamic effect' on men experiencing erectile dysfunction and loss of sexual desire.
