Aromatase inhibitor (acts to prevent breast cancer cells from proliferating)
Damiana has been treated as one of the strongest aphrodisiacs in Central America since the time of the ancient Mayan civilization, as you can see from its fascinating scent and taste. It also acts as a tonic to maintain physical and mental balance, so it was enshrined as a sacred medicine in the Maya civilization.
Since then, for over a century worldwide, the use of Damiana has been associated with increased energy and reproductive function for both men and women. Damiana\'s effects are also effective as antidepressants, tonics, diuretics, coughing drugs, and remedies, and it is said that it is also effective for mental and physical disorders caused by menopausal disorders in women, infertility, and menstrual disorders.
Dr. James Balch\'s book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing, lists Damiana\'s benefits as headache relief, bedwetting control, and intestinal muscle contraction promotion. In Germany, Damiana leaves are used to relieve symptoms of menorrhagia and memory weakness, as well as hormones and tonics for the central nervous system.
