Catuaba Bark - Erythroxylum Catuaba
This well-known herb, growing in the Amazon rainforest, has an extremely positive effect on the human body. According to one story it was discovered by the Tupi Indian tribe and was used for several purposes. First, it facilitated the survival of a person whose nervous system, after taking it, functioned more optimally - it stimulated, sharpened the senses, and at the same time relieved from stress. Secondly, it facilitated the survival of the entire tribe because of its aphrodisiac properties.
Typically made into a tea.
Sold by the ounce.
