- It also appears to boost production of sex hormones, and to excite the nerve endings in the genital area
Muirapuama has been well-researched as a sexual tonic for both men and women
- Muirapuama is also used as a general tonic for the nervous system and can help treat exhaustion, anxiety and depression, PMS amd menstrual cramps.
- Muirapuama was one of only three (along with Catuaba and Damiana) that were recommended for further research
- Apart from the leaves, all other parts of the bush are rich in resins, lupeol, campestrol, and beta-sitosterol
Some years ago the Brazilian Government researched 120 local remedies that were in use as aphrodisiacs
- Scientists are unsure how Muirapuama works, but it is thought to stimulate sexual desire both psychologically and physically, through a direct action on brain chemicals (dopamine, noradrenaline and serotonin)
- It improves libido and the ability to attain climax, and has been frequently used in cases of erectile dysfunction
None known at therapeutic doses.
Muirapuama is generally used in capsule form. Take two capsules in the morning after breakfast and two capsules in the evening two hours before retiring. A regular course is essential, with the best results coming after five to six weeks.
Rio Health is the direct-mail division of Rio Trading Co (Health) Ltd. which was founded in 1986 and is based in Brighton on the Sussex coast. The company was founded by Graeme Lewis, Denise Sheldon and Ben Nash to enable them to share the many benefits of South American herbs, after experiencing the effects themselves whilst living in Brazil.
From the beginning the company has always had high ideals about operating a fair trade policy, using natural ingredients and minimising the use of any additives. That is why we always try and negotiate a fair trade price with our growers and make sure the products come from sustainable sources. This ideal is still very important and alive today.
Rio Trading are also exclusive U.K. distributors for Green Magma Organic Green Barley Juice extract, Nutramedix products and Earth•Line and Sea•Line natural body care products. We believe that these ranges fit perfectly with our vision to becoming an all-round supplier of quality natural health products.
