What is Muira Puama?

Muira puama is a flowering shrub most commonly found in the Amazon rainforest. Traditional remedies call for using the entire plant; however, modern herbal usage relies on the bark and roots.

Muira Puama Powder

Muira puama powder is primarily used as an aphrodisiac to enhance sexual performance; it is particularly effective in older men [1]. It has also been used a nerve tonic by the Amazonian population [2]. Individuals also take muira puama for its cognitive and adaptogenic benefits. While the mechanism of action is not well understood, terpenoids are the most likely component that account for this supplement's benefits, ptychonal in particular [2].  

 

Muira Puama Benefits

This supplement functions as an aphrodisiac for men and women alike. In one study conducted on 202 women (pre and postmenopausal), a combination of muira puama and ginkgo biloba noted significant improvement across all parameters of the study (sex life satisfaction, ability to reach orgasm, as well as intensity) [3]. In another study focusing on 262 men, both libido and erectile function saw dramatic improvements after supplementing with muira puama powder for two weeks [1, 3]. This supplement also has numerous implications for cognitive enhancement as well. This includes nerve regeneration (Nerve Growth Factor or NGF), neuroprotection, and a boost to both short and long term memory [2, 5, 6, 7]. This supplement is also an adaptogen, which means it helps attenuate the physical and chemical side effects of stress. One rat study in particular noted that muira puama supplementation was able to prevent increases in anxiety altogether [8]. It is able to improve mood as well [9].
