Swanson Muira Puama is a dietary supplement that includes a highly concentrated extract of the Muira Puama root. Ratio 10: 1 means that up to 10 g of raw material was used to obtain 1 g of extract. This translates into a high concentration of bioactive substances, and thus the effectiveness of the product.
The supplement belongs to a group of strong, herbal aphrodisiacs and is most often used to improve sexual condition and strengthen libido. Interestingly, it works equally well with men and women. In addition, it has a beneficial effect on the work of the nervous system, has an anti-stress effect, and promotes the improvement of memory and concentration. The preparation is particularly helpful in situations when problems in the potential or mental performance are the result of excessive, long-term stress.
Muira Puama (Ptychopetalum olacoides) is a small tree from the Amazon rain forests. Indigenous Indians refer to them as the "fertility tree" due to the strong aphrodisiac action. Initially, the extracts from Muira Puama were used only as a booster of sexual function. Recent scientific reports indicate their ability to regulate the neurotransmitter economy and a beneficial effect on the action of the central nervous system.
For therapeutic purposes, mainly the roots of the plant are used. Researchers identified a number of bioactive compounds from them, such as fatty acids and their esters, essential oils, sterols, triterpenes, and a new alkaloid called muirapuamin.
Strengthening sexual function
Extracts from Muira Puama are recommended primarily to people who have lost interest in sex, do not feel lust and do not get satisfaction from intercourse. The effectiveness of their effects has been confirmed in clinical trials conducted with women and men. In both groups, the level of libido and satisfaction with sexual life increased, the frequency of intercourse increased and orgasm was more often achieved. In men, sexual performance has also improved, especially in the area of achieving and maintaining an erection.
The exact mechanism of action of Muir Puam remains a mystery. Researchers postulate that it’s related to the beneficial effect of bioactive substances present in the plant's root on the general physical and emotional condition. All those who participated in the study reported that, apart from improving the quality of erotic life, their overall well-being significantly improved.
Muira Puama can be considered an adaptogenic plant. It works exceptionally well during periods of chronic stress. It reduces its negative impact on the body, especially on the psyche and prevents depression that can develop as a consequence of chronic stress. Indigenous people of Brazil have used extracts from this plant for centuries to strengthen the psychophysical condition and increase resistance to stress.
Muira Puama's stress-resistant properties were confirmed in rodent tests. In one study, it was proven that the effectiveness of Muira Puama extracts in reducing the symptoms of stress-induced depression is comparable to the standard dose of imipramine. The rodents that received the Muira Puama extract after stress exposure did not exhibit such strong anxiety behaviours as those receiving a placebo. They also had lower levels of cortisol and glucose in the blood, suggesting that the nervous system is stable and there are no dysfunctions on the HPA axis.
An interesting feature of Muira Puama is its beneficial effect on memory functions. It has been proven that the bioactive compounds present in the root of the plant are able to inhibit the enzymes responsible for the degradation of acetylcholine within the hippocampus and striatum. Acetylcholine is a key neurotransmitter that is responsible for the formation of memory traces, the ability to concentrate and overall intellectual performance.
Supplementation with Muira Puama extracts can be used in healthy people who want to strengthen their memory. It will also be a good option for patients in whom cognitive decline has occurred as a consequence of a neurodegenerative disease, in particular Alzheimer's disease.
Beneficial effect on the pace of learning
Extracts from Muira Puama not only increase the amount of information stored, but also accelerate the rate of their absorption. Initial research suggests that some compounds found in the root of this plant favour the growth of neurons by increasing the amount of NGF. Appropriately large amount of neurons and keeping them in good condition is crucial for the smooth running of the learning process. Researchers also point to the possible effects of the bioactive substances present in Muira Puama on 5-HT2A serotonin receptors that are involved in the regulation of neurogenesis and the pace of learning.
In conclusion, Swanson Muira Puama is an interesting supplement that has an aphrodisiac and nootropic effect. Ideally suited to situations of excessive stress, which weakens the psychophysical condition, impairs memory and cognitive functions and aggravates sexual performance. It can be used by both men and women.
