Damiana also improves libido in both males and females (which is very important when trying to conceive).
Damiana is best known for its ability to remedy impotence by encouraging circulation to the male sex organs. It is also believed to improve sperm count and motility.
This wonderful herb helps to balance hormones by its action on the pituitary and adrenal glands, two of the most important glands for hormonal balance. The toning action on the adrenals help the body with stress levels, energy levels, and stamina.
Damiana may be used safely by both men and women to help enhance libido, erectile function, sperm count and motility, as well as egg follicle maturation and viability.
Natives of central and Southern America have drunk damiana tea to help with all these issues.
