Damiana Leaves General Information
Damiana is a small shrub with smooth leaves that are pale green on top and the flowers are yellow that rise singly at the top of a stem. This herb is native to the American Southwest, Mexico and the West Indies. The Mayans and Aztecs used it as a sexual stimulant and as a treatment for respiratory disorders. Damiana was sometimes burned ceremoniously to enable participants to "see visions". In addition to its use in herbal medicine, this herb is used in Mexico today as a substitute for Chinese tea and as a flavoring for liqueurs.

Damiana Leaves Uses & Scientific Evidence For
For thousands of years, Latin American cultures have ritualistically used Damiana as a sexual stimulant. Since the 19th century this herb has been used as an overall body tonic, and can be used for a variety of ailments for both men and women. Damiana acts as an anti-depressant. It reduces anxiety, nervousness, and mild depression and promotes a general feeling of well-being. It also stimulates the circulation of the body, which raises energy levels, thereby promoting weight loss.

Today Damiana is used to treat asthma and other respiratory diseases, depression, digestive problems, menstrual disorders, and various forms of sexual dysfunction such as impotence in men, and inability to achieve orgasm in women. While Damiana is still popular as an aphrodisiac for males, the effects appear to be rather mild, and no scientific studies have been reported. Even though Damiana contains arbutin, a urinary antiseptic, the levels are probably too low to make this herb a useful treatment for bladder infections.

There are herbalists that recommend that Damian can relieve anxiety, nervousness and mild depression, especially if these symptoms are combined with sexual issues. The herb is also used as a general tonic to improve wellness.
