Muira Puama

Derived from the rainforests of Amazon, Muira Puama is similar to Horny Goat Weed in that it contains icariin as its active ingredient.

What about the science?

In one noteworthy study, French sexologist Dr. Jacques Waynberg treated 262 men with Muira Puama who either had erectile dysfunction or libido issues.  Two weeks into the treatment 61% of the men reported “dynamic improvements” and after a full month, 63% of the men reported that things were getting progressively better, with no side effects whatsoever.[i]

Another study strictly for females at the Institute of Sexology showed the combination of Muira Puama with a standardized extract of Ginkgo leaf created significant improvement in sexual desires, intercourse, excitement, fantasies, satisfaction, ease in reaching orgasm, and orgasm intensity for 65% of the women taking the supplement.

 And while the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition also reports that Muira Puama may have testosterone-boosting effects in both men and women, definitive studies are limited.  Ditto for cortisol as the only real studies that show a lowering of cortisol were performed on mice so you may need to test this one out and see how it performs for you personally.[ii]
