Muira Puama

Muira puama, a.k.a. potency wood (Ptychopetalum olacoides), is a shrub native to Brazil that has long been used as a powerful aphrodisiac and nerve stimulant in folk medicine. A recent clinical study has validated its safety and effectiveness in impr oving libido and sexual function in men.

At the Institute of Sexology in Paris, France, a clinical study with 262 patients complaining of lack of sexual desire and the inability to attain or maintain an erection demonstrated Muira puama extract (4:1) to be effective in many cases. Within two w eeks, at a daily dose of 1 to 1.5 grams of extract, 62% of patients with loss of libido claimed that the treatment had dynamic effect while 51% of patients with "erection failures" felt that Muira puama was of benefit.

Presently, the mechanism of action of Muira puama is unknown. Future research will undoubtedly shed additional light on this extremely promising herb for impotence.
