Traditional Use and History

The use of Damiana dates back many centuries. There are reports of its use by the Maya civilization as an aphrodisiac, as well as to treat dizziness and loss of balance. It was also used by the Aztecs as a tonic that was believed to improve overall health and wellbeing.

Then when the Spanish missionaries arrived in Mexico, they started to export Damiana and in the 1870s Damiana began to spread as a commercial product. Later, in the USA, it was sold as an ingredient for tonics, elixirs and tinctures. At that time, it was predominantly being used as an aphrodisiac.

Knowledge about Damiana was gradually lost, until it was rediscovered in the 1960s by ethnobotanists and hippies. Damiana has since then had a permanent place in the medicine cabinets of herbalists and phytotherapists.

 Main Mechanism in Men

• Nitric Oxide (NO) release – The mechanism of action involves several molecular pathways participating in NO release and libido arousal.

• PDE 5 activity inhibition – which induces smooth muscle relaxation, resulting in erection.

• Increases testosterone levels – inhibits testosterone degradation due to its anti-aromatase activity.

Main Mechanism in Women

• Nitric Oxide (NO) release – increase the release of NO, promoting normal behaviour of the first stage of female sexual function to further promote normal sexual activity.
• PDE 5 activity inhibition – induces smooth muscle relaxation, resulting in vaginal smooth muscle relaxation.
• Increases testosterone levels – inhibits testosterone degradation due to its anti-aromatase activity.
