Support Your Body with Damiana
When you say “no, I have a headache”, it could be that a) you really have a headache, b) you are exhausted, c) your sexual drive is low, d) you fear disappointment, or e) your book is far too exciting to drop. Although there is nothing to be done about a great book, there is a remedy that may help with a, b, c, and d at the same time: Damiana.
Damiana is a shrub (Turnera Diffusa) native to Southwest Texas and Central/South America in general. Its small aromatic yellow flowers bloom throughout summer. Damiana tea has a characteristic minty, spicy taste that reminds of the flowers’ perfume. Damiana liquid extract is made from the leaves of the Damiana shrub.
Damiana leaves are an ingredient in a traditional Mexican liqueur that is sometimes used in lieu of triple sec in margaritas. Mexican folklore claims that it was used in the “original” margarita and the damiana margarita is still popular in the Los Cabos region of Mexico.
Damiana leaves were also included in several 19th-century patent medicines, such as Pemberton’s French Wine Coca. Damiana was also one of the main ingredients of the alcoholic precursor of Coca-Cola.
Part of its appeal comes from the ancient belief that damiana is a powerful aphrodisiac. The Aztecs, Mayans, and Guaycura knew Damiana and used it as an aphrodisiac, but also as a remedy for stress and menstrual symptoms.
Today, damiana is still used as a general tonic and a remedy for menopausal discomfort.
Damiana leaves are rich in antioxidant flavonoids and phenolics, including apigenin. They also contain terpenoids, alkaloids, anti-inflammatory plant steroids, saponins, tannins, and caffeine. These bioactive compounds make Damiana a popular well-being tonic that can make you feel overall better when your mood and energy are down. Its bioactive profile includes 28 terpenes (including bisabolol, azulene, kaempferol, salicylic acid, farnesol, etc), 36 flavonoids (including apigenin, quercetin, tannin, etc.), and vitamins (B1, B3, and C).
Damiana is considered hypoallergenic and generally safe with few side effects—the main being that you could get “high” and even hallucinate if consumed at high levels. Thankfully, herbalists have found that moderate doses of damiana work better than higher ones. So, try some Damiana Liquid Extract and keep your energy level high.
