Muira Puama Root
The Amazon Rainforest is home to some of the world’s most powerful medicinal plants, one of which is Muira Puama, also known by its botanical name, Ptychopetalum olacoides. This small South American tree can grow up to 5 meters in height and produces small, white flowers with a scent similar to jasmine.
Considered as an herb similar to kratom, Muira Puama root and bark are traditionally prepared as a tincture, decoction, or extract, and taken as a remedy for various health ailments including sexual impotency. It’s no surprise, then, that this rainforest plant is also known as “potency wood” and even “erection root!”
