The secret to the potency of VigRX Plus is its formulation.
The makers of this natural male enhancement supplement did their homework because it is engineered to deliver the maximum results possible.
The formula includes a combination of herbal concentrates and extracts from aphrodisiacs from different parts of the world, including South America, Europe, as well as China.
One of the really potent ingredients in VigRX Plus is Muira Puama (1).
The following are information about it, its uses, and its side effects.
What Is Muira Puama?
Muira Puama is also known as potency wood.
It is a small flowering tree (sometimes people refer to it as a plant due to its small size). This little tree is native to the Brazilian Amazon and Guyana.
What Are Its Uses?
Even before it was used to make herbal supplements in these modern times, Muira Puama has been used traditionally as a type of folk medicine.
Indigenous Brazilian tribes have been using it to treat upset stomach, rheumatism, influenza, and other diseases.
One of its notable uses of this medicinal plant is for treating sexual debility. That is why Muira Puama is also known as erection root.
Note that it is the bark and the roots of this herb that are usually harvested for medicinal purposes.
Today, Muira Puama is used for the prevention of sexual disorders (2). Its extracts are also used as a type of aphrodisiac, which helps to increase the interest of men when it comes to sexual activity.
Its extracts are also applied directly on the skin for the treatment for muscle paralysis and rheumatism.
Here are the other medical conditions for which this medicinal herb is used for:
- Loss of appetite
- Sore joints
- Menstrual disorders
- Upset stomach
- Stress treatment
A study was conducted in Paris, France that involved 262 men who suffered from symptoms of impotence and lack of libido.
The study showed that 90% of the men who participated experienced a sustained erection, 85% of them had improved libido, and almost all men were provided relief from the symptoms of sexual asthenia.
Side Effects of Using Muira Pauma
Using Muira Pauma may produce side effects in some people. Experts who have tested the effects of this herb have discovered that it may cause gastrointestinal problems.
Other than that, it is also known to have some stimulatory effects. In short, you shouldn’t take preparations made with this herb if you are already taking anti-depressants.
Note that extracts of this herb are used in VigRX Plus because of its ability to improve male potency and increase sexual desire.
