In the stiflingly hot and stark landscape of harshest Mexico, there survives a small shrub whose leaves have been used by everyone from Mayan Witch Doctors to Spanish settlers to reinvigorate the sexuality of those in need. The fabled Damiana leaves are now here, readily available for your 100% natural solution to problems of libido and fertility.
Also known as Turnera Diffusa, this seemingly unremarkable shrub, native to Texas and South and Central America, is perhaps best known for its role in Mexican folk history.
The Mayans were the first to harness the power of the Damiana leaves but they were yet to recognise it fully for it's quality as an aphrodisiac. Under the different moniker of Mizi Bcoc, they actually used it to cure giddiness and a loss of balance.
It wasn't until the Spanish missionary Father Juan Maria de Salvateria came across a group of Mexican Indians using it for altogether more unsavoury purposes that the Damiana leaf began to show its true colours as a future cure for impotence and or loss of libido in women.
By the 1870s Damiana had started to make some waves outside of its native Mexico and the good people of Texas, USA realised that they too had the heat resistant shrub growing on their doorstep. The result was the mass production of Damiana tincture which was advertised to the nation as nature's most powerful aphrodisiac.
"To improve sexual ability of the enfeebled and the aged and to promote increased activity to all the pelvic secretions."
Unsurprisingly, the Damiana leaf sold like hotcakes, much as it still does today.
Much of the allure of the Damiana leaf came from its transferrable ability between the sexes. If anything, today, it is seen perhaps as more for women than it is for men. The truth is that this potent sexuality tonic can work equally well for both sexes.
In Mexico, such is the longstanding popularity of the Damiana leaf that it is also used to make a notorious sweet liqueur. This liqueur not only claims to be one of the original ingredients of the Margarita cocktail but also comes in a bottle in the shape of a pregnant lady.
How does this miracle leaf work? It is thought that there are two elements at work here that are both surprisingly simple. First there is a little kick of caffeine, simple yet effective. Second, is the oxygenation effect of the leaf on the body upon consumption.
By supplying a better line of o2 to the pelvic region and genitalia, they are instantly invigorated. This results, in the short term, is an enriched energy source for your reproductive organs.
