Clinical Trials Involving Damiana

damiana-leaf-250-pThere is a distinct lack of any trials actually involving human test subjects… There have been trials involving lab rats, looking at the supposed aphrodisiac effects of Damiana…

Overall the results provided no distinct proof of its claimed effectiveness… a few sporadic improvements were noted especially when the rats were fatigued, but nothing constant or anything that would effectively back up many manufacturers claims of its libido boosting properties.

Can Damiana Boost Testosterone

There is no proof or any clinical studies that Damiana has any beneficial effect on Testosterone production whatsoever. It has been shown to have possible anti aromatase properties ( in clinical trials using rats), so could be useful in guys coming off steroids who are looking to reduce any increased estrogen levels..

For any man seeking to boost low testosterone levels and to invigorate his sex drive and energy, we strongly suggest that you should not rely on Damiana to redress any shortfall.. there are plenty of other more clinically proven natural ingredients that can do this and much more….
