Raw, non-GMO Muira Puama Root is said to possibly support the psychological and physical aspects of vitality and a healthy female cycles. Muira Puama is one of the most active botanicals with a long history of traditional use as an energy tonic. It is known in some circles as "the Invigorator of the Amazon" and in fact, many people consider it the new Yohimbe but with considerably less possible side effects.
Muira Puama was the subject of a study conducted by the UCLA School of Medicine. The study showed a significant improvement in both endurance and impulses. The Amazon natives have known this for centuries, as this herb has been widely used as an excitatory plant by both men and women, and is commonly known as "potent wood". The short term effects of Muira Puama may help support healthy circulation. Longer term use may support the production of jing.
Muira Puama has also been as a possible support of a healthy stress response and sensory response. It has been used to tonify the senses and to perhaps support the body in cases of mild exhaustion. It may also support a healthy digestive system.
While so-called "invigorators" have come and gone in history, Muira Puama has risen above this class of products and may well provide the most effective natural therapeutic approach for loss of stamina in both genders.
