1. Mood Enhancement and Stress Reduction
A common use of damiana herb is managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, nervousness, lethargy and insomnia. It is considered to be an adaptogen herb by some researchers since it can help build the body’s defenses against stress.
Damiana may help you feel more relaxed, alleviate physical symptoms tied to stress (like muscle tension or headaches) and allow you to fall asleep more easily. It is said to help improve “overall wellness” by reducing many physical symptoms, such as pain and fatigue, and improving digestion, energy, concentration and sexual desire.
2. Can Help Increase Libido/Sex Drive
Damiana has historically been known as a natural aphrodisiac because it’s said to improve sexual arousal and blood flow to the genital area. It’s believed that caffeine, arbutine and flavonoids are the main active compounds found in damiana that help with sexual function.
It can help both men and women when it comes to improving libido, plus it may help reduce impotence. Another reason that damiana is considered to have aphrodisiac qualities is because it can help improve energy levels, fight chronic fatigue, reduce the effects of stress (one of the biggest killers of sex drive) and improve stamina.
