Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs now offers a high potency 10:1 Muira Puama Extract. Muira Puama (Ptychopetalum olacoides), which is also known as "Potency Wood", has been utilized in Amazonia for centuries - primarily and traditionally to increase libido, but also as a tonic for nervousness. The modern British Herbal Pharmacopoeia recommends Muira Puama for impotency, and it has been in the Brazilian Pharmocopoeia since the 1950's. Bottled in Glass! No Stearates! No Fillers! No Junk!
***These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on hand-operated equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.
Although Muira Puama has been and is still utilized as a strengthening tonic for males and as a central nervous system tonic; it is most oftentimes used to increase libido in both men and women, generally in combination with the herb Catuaba (also available in potent extract form from Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs). A paper presented at The First International Congress on Ethnopharmacology held in Strasbourg, France, in 1990, described a trial done at the Institute of Sexology in Paris on 262 men with function problems, including a lack of libido. Researchers found that over half of the subjects given a daily dose of 1 to 1.5 grams of Muira Puama extract over a two week period experienced positive benefits in their libido. This herb has been gaining in popularity in the United States, where herbalists and health care practitioners are using it for libido, menstrual cramps and PMS, nerve pain, and for central nervous system disorders. The active ingredients in Muira Puama are a group of terpenes, phenols and resins which are not very soluble in water and which are not digested in the stomach. Thus, taking the raw herb in capsules or tea provides little benefit. The extract utilized by Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs has been extracted with an ethanol/water solution which is then evaporated, thereby ensuring that the full benefits of this product may be obtained when taken orally.

There are some strong hormonal "supplements" I use that can shut down my sex drive. Sometimes high stress levels for too long can also do this. Your muira puama is excellent for boosting that back to normal and beyond. A.C., Surrey, Canada (8/14/15)
