Caffeine is an alkaloid found in multiple different leaves, nuts, seeds and berries. We primarily source the caffeine from coffee beans. Our dose of caffeine is generally recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration and is significantly less than that of a regular cup of coffee (<10%). We have added it to our supplement to give that little extra boost of sexual excitation.
As 90% of North American adults consume caffeine regularly, it is generally well tolerated. Avoid if you are especially sensitive to caffeine.
Native to the Americas, damiana is a small shrub with sweet spicy aromatic flowers and leaves. Damiana tea has long been thought of as having a strong aphrodisiac effect. In fact, damiana usage has been shown to improve sexual excitation and performance in lab rats.
A biennial plant found natively in the high altitudes of Peru, maca is often known as a female aphrodisiac. We use the root portion to work synergistically with our other ingredients, specifically chasteberry. Aside for the multiple medical issues it is used to manage in humans, Maca is used to treat fertility problems in livestock. It has been suggested to help manage the sexual side effects of people taking some anti-depressants.
A fragrant and butterfly-attracting tree found on many continents, its fruit and seeds have been dubbed “the women’s herb” because of the effects on female hormones. In our supplement, the chasteberry dose is such that increases progesterone. This has a direct effect on a woman’s sex drive.
Possible S/E: gastrointestinal irritation, dizziness, dry mouth
An amino acid, which are the building blocks of proteins. There are multiple different sources of L-arginine such as meat and dairy. Ours is sourced from natural sugar (unlike some dietary supplements that use human hair sources!) L-arginine is frequently used for heart and coronary conditions, erectile dysfunction, and inflammatory disorders. In our supplement, this amino acid works with the nitric oxide system and promotes blood flow to the clitoris.
Possible S/E: abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea.
A very interesting and slow growing tree that appears to be unchanged from its fossils meaning it has survived major extinction events. Ginkgo has been used for years in many different health disorders from vertigo to memory loss and asthma to depression. In our supplement, ginkgo acts on the nitric oxide treatment similarly to ginseng. It is also thought to help reverse the sexual side effects of many antidepressants including SSRIs.
Possible S/E: gastric upset, headache, dizziness, constipation, skin irritation
A perennial plant grown primarily in North America and Asia, ginseng is frequently used in dietary supplements, tea, cosmetics, hair products, and even coffee.
