Damiana is a small shrub with aromatic leaves found throughout
Mexico, Central and South America and the West Indies. The botanical name of the
plant describes its use as an aphrodisiac. For more than 100 years, Damiana's
use has been associated with improving sexual function in both males and
females. Damiana acts as an anti depressant, tonic, diuretic, to treat coughs
and as a mild laxative. It is said to relieve headaches, control bed-wetting,
and stimulate muscular contractions of the intestinal tract. Damiana is a
stimulating nerve tonic used for debility, depression and lethargy. The leaves
are used in Germany to relieve stress and for its tonic action on the hormonal
and central nervous system.
