I am a 24-year-old female that takes birth control that drastically reduced my sex drive. Taking these herbs along with Damiana pills works wonders! It increases sex drive without nasty side effects.

Muira puama, also called "potency wood," is a small tree up to 15 feet in height native to the Brazilian Amazon. The bark and root are the primary parts that are utilized. Indigenous peoples use muira puama for the therapy of sexual debility, fatigue, neuromuscular problems, and rheumatism.
The root and bark of muira puama are rich in free long-chain fatty acids, essential oils, plant sterols, coumarin, lupeol, and an alkaloid named muirapuamine. Because of its various constituents, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact chemicals responsible for its sex boosting effects.
Muira Puama is one of the most active botanicals with a long history of traditional use as an energy tonic, general health improver and remedy for impotence & sexual insufficiency. It is known in some circles as "the Viagra of the Amazon" and in fact, many people now consider it the new Yohimbe but with considerably less possible side effects.
I love this product. Muira Puama is one of my favorite herbs. Nature's Answer's Muira Puama is as good a quality as I've ever tried and significantly cheaper than most other sources I've found.
Muira Puama consistently gives me a wonderful lift in mood, libido, energy, and a general sense of well-being. The only negative I can say about it is that if taken daily for too long (perhaps more than 2 weeks), the effects eventually dissipate. Otherwise, I would use it every day. As it is, generally use it on weekends only to keep my tolerance down.
Bear in mind that when used in high doses most common side effects is insomnia. This is because of the alertness it produces, and, logically, if you are too alert when you go to bed, you are likely to toss and turn in bed. To avoid this limit your daily intake of muira puama to one-two capsules and do not take it before bedtime.
If interested in it's aphrodisiac properties, I highly recommend combining it with Catuaba Bark. They have a wonderful synergistic effect.

I ordered this after researching on-line at various sites regarding the usage of this herb. I checked out prices, also. iHerb.com has the best price, and the product arrived quickly. Most importantly, this herb gives me more energy, raises libido, and does exactly what it is claimed to do. One side effect is supposedly insomnia if you take too much. That is also true. Follow the directions and it is amazing.
Love it... for energy

I have been taking this for energy (just two in the morning) and it makes a huge difference for me.
It may raise blood pressure, but that's ok for me, as I tend to have low blood pressure.
Unhappy that price has gone up. Vitacost currently sells this for $4.99. Why are iherb prices less competitive these days?

This does not work as I remember. It is okay to try, since we are all different but I did not notice an enhancement in my sex drive.
