Damiana Teabags are beneficial for men and women with a low sex drive who experience decreased sensitivity of the genitals and have difficulty achieving arousal.
The fragrant leaves of the Damiana shrub are known across South America, the Caribbean and Mexico. It makes an intriguing tea which has a high reputation as a calmer of the mood and an anti-depressant. The volatile oils are probably part of the trigger to a more positive frame of mind and for this reason the tea is also used as a loving cup. The sitosterol content may account for its stimulating effect on the sexual response in both men and women.
Damiana (Turnera diffusa) is a central nervous system tonic with proven benefits for the reproductive organs. Historically, it has been used to relieve anxiety, nervousness, and mild depression, especially if these symptoms have a sexual component. Damiana is specifically used in cases of anxiety and depression where there is a sexual problem such as low sex drive.
How many herbs can you say have ties to the original alcoholic version of Coca-Cola and the original version of the margarita? The damiana herb certainly has a colourful history that can be dated back to the Mayan Indians, most notably with improving sexual function in both males and females. No wonder Coke called itself the "real thing."
So this Damiana - What is it?
It is actually a small shrub, found in hot and humid regions in Central America, South America, and in Texas. Damiana Flowers are said to have a fragrance similar to chamomile from the oils present in the plant. The word damiana itself is derived from ancient Greek and Italian with the meaning "to tame or to subdue." Its root is the same as the names Damon and Damian.
Medicinally, the herb has been used as an aphrodisiac, as a relaxant, to improve digestion, to treat constipation, and to help relieve certain menstruation symptoms. In Holland, it is renowned for its sexual enhancing qualities and celebrated for the positive effect on reproductive organs. The pharmacology of the plant suggests that its alkaloids could have testosterone-like actions.
It is thought that damiana’s pro-sexual effect involves the participation of the nitrous oxide pathway, recent studies indicate that at identical doses to sildenafil (10 mg/kg) it helps with erections and premature ejaculation - and without the awful side effects linked to sildenafil. So, it is great for encouraging circulation and blood flow where it is most needed - it should also be noted that for this reason, it should not be used while taking blood pressure tablets as it might cause them to over-perform.
But wait! Damiana tea isn't just effective for your libido - it is used all round the world to treat various conditions:
- In Indian medicine - it is used to treat asthma.
- In the Bahamas, steam produced when the herb is boiled in water is inhaled and used to treat headaches.
- Pleasant mood enhancer is used in alcoholic liqueurs in Mexico
So pull up a chair, lets have a brew - Damiana could be just the 'pick me up' you've been waiting for!
