What is Damiana?
Damiana is a small flowering shrub that grows easily in hot climates, like southwestern Texas, parts of Central and South America, and the Caribbean. When the shrub is flowering, its leaves are harvested for use in traditional wellness practices. Known for its potent aroma and small yellow flowers, this traditional plant has been used for centuries. In fact, damiana was used by the ancient Mayans, who reportedly combined the herb with sugar. The herb was even included in the 19th century “energy drink” predecessor to Coca-Cola, Pemberton's French Wine Coca.
Be sure to check with your health care professional before taking any type of nutritional supplement. While the herb’s leaves can be dried and brewed into tea, supplements are more popularly available in capsule or liquid form.
Damiana Directions for Use
Since there is no standardized damiana dosage, be sure to follow the manufacturer's directions before beginning a supplementation regimen. Commercially available supplements generally range in potency from 300 mg to 500 mg.
