Damiana grows wild in the subtropical regions of the Americas and Africa and is widely used in traditional medicine as an anti-cough, diuretic (increasing urine flow), and aphrodisiac (sexual stimulant) agent.
In traditional Mexican culture, Damiana is used for gastrointestinal disorders. Damiana extract has shown antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, which may have gastrointestinal effects.
Damiana appears on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) GRAS (generally recognized as safe) list and is widely used as a food flavoring. However, because Damiana contains low levels of cyanide-like compounds, excessive doses may be dangerous so caution should be used in it's consumption.
Traditionally, 2-4 grams (2 oz = 56 grams) of dried Damiana leaf, three times a day, or the same dose steeped in 150 milliliters of boiling water for 5-10 minutes, consumed two to three times a day has been used. 3-4 grams of powdered leaf in tablets or capsules can be used two to three times a day. These are the traditionally recommended doses for Adults.
