The maca plant has exploded in popularity in recent years. A plant native to Peru, it has traditionally been used to:
- enhance fertility (including increasing sperm production and improving sperm quality)
- boost sex drive (in both men and women)
- as well as to improve energy and stamina.
- Maca can also improve symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes and disrupted sleep at night.Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo’s health benefits are thought to come from its high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also known to increase blood flow, play a role in how neurotransmitters in the brain operate and help relieve premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms.Panax ginseng
Going back to ancient times, Panax ginseng was used to increase energy and stamina and to give the immune system a boost.According to a comprehensive data review of six randomized trials that occurred over 15 years, Panax ginseng may also be an effective and safe treatment for erectile dysfunction.** A 2011 review of alternative medicines for sexual function arrived at a similar conclusion, finding Panax ginseng the only dietary supplement to improve erectile function with no safety issues.*****Khera M, Goldstein I.

As well as its better known beneficial effects on oxidative stress, inflammation and digestion, ginger also has a reputation as an aphrodisiac that can be traced back to the first century AD (when physician Dioscorides recommended ginger for stimulating the male organ). And today, many cultures around the world, continue to use ginger as a libido boosting treatment.L-Arginine
L-arginine is an amino acid that helps make proteins. It also becomes the gas nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO is important for erectile function because it helps blood vessels relax, so more oxygen-rich blood can circulate through your arteries. Healthy blood flow to the arteries of the penis is essential for normal erectile function.Damiana leaf
Damiana, also known as Turnera diffusa, is a low-growing plant and wild shrub with yellow flowers and fragrant leaves. It’s native to the sub-tropical climates of southern Texas, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Damiana’s use as an herbal remedy predates written history. By the time the Spanish crossed the Atlantic, indigenous cultures had been using it for centuries as an aphrodisiac and bladder tonic.Organic black pepper
Piperine is the alkaloid responsible for the pungency of black pepper and long pepper. Black pepper has been included to potentiate the absorption and effect of the other herbal actives – a well-known herbalists’ combination.
Black pepper, combined with Ginger Root and Ginkgo increases the effectiveness of all the products.
