Catuaba is a medium-sized tree native to the Amazon Rain Forest that produces attractive yellow and orange flowers along with small, oval, dark yellow fruit.

The Tupi Indians of Brazil have a long history of harvesting Catuaba as one of the leading therapeutic plants used in their culture. While it’s typically grown in the Amazon, Catuaba is readily available worldwide and its extensive study is beginning to show numerous beneficial qualities especially for women.


Traditional Indian cultures have always depended on Catuaba for a wide range of uses, but its ability to act as a Libido endorsing and stimulating potent aphrodisiac for both men and women appears to be its most popular claim to fame. Catuaba contains yohimbine and studies show that this is apparently the active compound that provides a stimulatory effect to the libido. [9]. Research has determined it increases dopamine levels in the brain, resulting in greater sensitivity to erogenous stimulation. What does that mean? Simple, it has side effects including create erotic dreams, heighten sexual satisfaction and orgasm intensity with regular use. Yes please.


Therapeutic natural supplements from the Amazon, like Maca root, Muira Puama, and Suma Root, all possess natural mood-lifting properties and Catuaba is no exception. A study from Brazil examined the effects of this plant on mood and found that it is highly effective for supporting a sense of overall well-being while promoting mental acuity and memory. [10] Women suffering from PMS will be excited to know that the Catuaba is great for supporting a normal response to stress; in other words, it’ll help you cope better with that special time of month.


If you’re thinking about supplementing with Catuaba bark extract, make sure you are using a high-quality source. Catuaba is mainly prepared from the bark of Erythroxylum vacciniifolium and Trichilia catgut, two trees that provide similar benefits. Always make sure at least one of these names are mentioned on a Catuaba supplement. LibiGem® contains only the highest quality Catuaba prepared from Trichilia.
