Q. Before I buy this herb I would like to know is it okay to combine muira puama with catuaba or other herbs?
A. It is a good idea to first learn how each herb influences you by itself and the right dosage that works for you. Once you know how each herb works for you then you can combine them, reducing the dosage of each by half so as not to overdose.
Combining with aphrodisiac formulas
Q. Can muira puama herb be taken the same day as Passion Rx with Yohimbe?
A. Passion Rx is potent by itself, therefore it is preferable not to take both the same day but you can alternate their use. Passion Rx does contain a high potency muira puama extract.
Mood effect, better feeling
Q. I have noticed that my mood is better when I use muira puama, have others reported a similar benefit?
A. Yes, a few people have emailed us that, after several days of taking muira puama, they have noticed an improved sense of well-being. However, if a person takes a high dose of muira puama for several days, the resulting shallow sleep from the overstimulation can lower mood. Therefore, it is important that you find the right dose of muira puama that works for you without causing insomnia.
Comparing the potency of different sexual enhancing herbs
Q. Which of these herbs are more potent, catuaba, muira puama, maca, tongkat ali, tribulus terrestris, mucuna pruriens, or yohimbe?
A. Much depends on the dosage used and the extract potency. Generally tongkat ali is quite potent, and so is yohimbe. Tribulus terrestris, catuaba, Mucuna pruriens, and muira puama are similar in potency but keep in mind that they each work in different ways. Some people respond better to one herb than another. We prefer combination formulas that take advantage of the benefits of each herb. One such excellent combination formula with tongkat ali, catuaba, muira puama, tribulus terrestris, maca, and other herbs is Passion Rx with Yohimbe that we carry.
Dosage, amount to take for benefits
Q. What is the right muira puama dosage?
A. Most people will find one capsule of muira puama taken daily five days a week to be a good dosage. Others may need a higher dosage. Once muira puama benefits begin, the dosage can be reduced or the herb can be taken less frequently.
For a male and female
Q. I am a 46 year old woman who has decreased desire and I just placed an order for this product. But some things I read seem to point to the fact that this is a product geared more towards men. Is this true? I would not want to take anything for a woman that is of benefit for a male only.
A. Muira puama works equally well in men and women.
Prostate health, cancer
Q. I would like to know if a man diagnosed with prostate cancer can take muira puama extract.
A. We have not seen any studies regarding the use of muira puama extract in men who have prostate cancer, so we can't say whether use will offer benefit or cause harm or side effects. We doubt it has a major influence on the prostate gland.
Andrology (Los Angeles, California). 2015. Treatment with a combination of ginger, L-citrulline, muira puama and Paullinia cupana can reverse the progression of corporal smooth muscle loss, fibrosis and veno-occlusive dysfunction in the aging rat. Aging associated erectile dysfunction is characterized within the corpora by a progressive apoptosis of the smooth muscle cells and their replacement by collagen. Nitric oxide has been shown to inhibit these histological changes in the corpora while PDE5 inhibitors (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra) as well as certain nutraceuticals such as ginger, paullinia cupana, muira puama and L-citrulline are known to enhance the effects of NO. We evaluated whether the daily oral administration for 2 months with a combination of ginger, paullinia cupana, muira puama and L-citrulline can effectively delay the ongoing corporal fibrosis, smooth muscle cell apoptosis and cavernosal veno-occlusive dysfunction seen in middle aged rats similar to that seen with tadalafil. An oral combination of ginger, muira puama, Paullinia cupana and L-citrulline seems to be as effective as daily PDE5 inhibitor therapy in either delaying or reversing the onset of the histological and functional characteristics of aging related erectile dysfunction.
