Catuaba is a medium-sized tree native to the Amazon Rain Forest that produces attractive yellow and orange flowers along with small, oval, dark yellow fruit. The Tupi Indians of Brazil have a long history of harvesting Catuaba as one of the leading therapeutic plants used in their culture. While it’s typically grown in the Amazon, Catuaba is readily available worldwide and its extensive study is beginning to show numerous beneficial qualities especially for women.
Yes, it’s a Natural Aphrodisiac
Traditional Indian cultures have always depended on Catuaba for a wide range of uses, but its ability to act as a Libido endorsing and stimulating potent aphrodisiac for both men and women appears to be its most popular claim to fame.

A study investigating its libido-boosting potential evaluated 202 healthy women with low sex drives. After one month of supplementation with Muira Puama, 65% reported improvements in Libido desire and sexual satisfaction.
Oh, and one more little fact; the women in the study also experienced more fantasies and increased orgasm intensity.  (Or should I say “O”)
