Damiana is a plant originally from Mexico, where it has a long history of traditional use. It is most well known for its reputed aphrodesiac effects, but also has an array of other actions.

Damiana supports and nourishes the nervous system, is used as a tonic for women, and it has a relaxing, yet uplifting and euphoric effect.

It is the leaf which is most commonly used, and it has been found to include a range of constituents including: cyanogenic glycosides, flavonoids, maltol glucoside, phenolics, monoterpenoids, sesquiterpenoids, triterpenoids. This product is an alcoholic tincture of Damiana at the concentration of 1:5, and 40% alcohol. It may be used as is, or consumed in beverages.

Alcohol extracts are far superior to any other method of extraction. It extracts the most amount of the chemicals compared to any other solvent. It helps the medicine to also diffuse quickly into the bloodstream. Alcohol is warming and medicine unto itself. To add, it also can esterify vitamins, oils and other medicinal chemicals making them more bioavailable and water soluble. To be really specific: the amount of alcohol in tinctures is incredibly tiny. Less than you will get from eating a few pieces of bread.

If you are taking 20 drops of a 60 percent alcohol tincture every hour for an acute condition, you will get less than 2ml of alcohol over the course of a day. If you are taking a general dose of 20 drops three times daily, this is less alcohol than you will get from eating two slices of bread.

If alcohol is a serious problem for you, then consider alternative extracts. Please store in a cool dark place, out of sunlight, heat & air exposure. This product has not been evaluated by the TGA for safe internal use. It is sold as a raw botanical product for ethnobotanical research purposes only.
