Muira Puama: the “viagra” of the Amazon

Muira puama or Ptychopetalum olacoides is a plant that is found in the Amazon. It awakens, stimulates and increases sexual desire.

Muira puama promotes well-being and improves the memory. It is equally useful for men and women. Colloquially, it’s known as the “Viagra” of the Amazon.

Although further studies regarding the workings of Muira puama are needed, it is considered to be one of the best aphrodisiacs. This is possibly due to the synergy between its active ingredients.

Muira puama increases the libido and can improve erectile dysfunction. Muira puama inhibits acetylcholinesterase, which is responsible for the degradation of acetylcholine.

A high level of acetylcholine relaxes the corpora cavernosa, dilates the blood vessels in the area and stimulates blood flow, facilitating the erection.

We can deduce that Muira puama stimulates other neuro-transmitters such as dopamine, noradrenalin and serotonin and as a result of this; a feeling of wellbeing is achieved when this aphrodisiac plant is ingested.

Muira puama can improve a person’s mood by acting upon the cholinergic, adrenergic and serotonergic systems.

In addition to its main mechanism of action, Muira puama improves the memory by increasing acetylcholine levels and acting upon the dopaminergic neurotransmitters.

Muira puama is recommended for Alzheimer’s disease in conjunction with omega 3 and phospholipids.

Due to its mechanism of action, it is not compatible with antidepressants, tranquillisers, anti-anxiety drugs and acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, and should not be taken you are taking these.

One of the commercially available products containing pure Muira puama powder is SupraMan.
