Description: Our Muira Pauma tincture is an infused alcoholic solution, at a ratio of 1:4 (25% alcohol). Muira pauma is an evergreen tree native to the rainforests of South America; it grows to a height of 15 metres. The outer bark is browny-grey whilst the inner bark is tinged red, the ovate leaves have short stalks and are approximately 8cm in length, glossy, dark green with paler green midribs. The flowers grow off the leaf stalk in panicles of 4-6; they are white in colour and have a fragrance analogous to jasmine.
Interesting Fact: Despite having been used in South America as a tonic for centuries, it wasn’t until around 1930 that muira puama began to make an appearance in Western herbals; it made its first appearance in the Brazilian Pharmacopoeia around the 1950’s and later, then around 1983 it was entered into the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia as a treatment for dysentery and impotence. In German herbals it’s been used to treat intestinal parasites such as hookworm and rheumatism.
