Catuaba can improve sexual performance

Actually there are several plants popularly called catuaba. The most common are the roots of Anemopaegma arvense (Bignoniaceae) typical of cerrado states such as Goiás, Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais and São Paulo, and the stem bark of Trichilia catigua ( Meliaceae), which is a small tree common in the Atlantic forest, but commercially originated in the state of Bahia.

Catuaba nutrients

The roots of Anemopaegma arvense contain substances such as chinchonaina Ia, IIa and kandelina A1, among others. These substances showed antioxidant activity. The shells of Trichilia catigua have coumarins, tannins, flavanolignans, steroids and saponins. The latter is the species with the highest number of pharmacological studies currently, surpassing much of the other species, so it is the most oriented.

Benefits of catuaba study

Improves sexual performance: As Trichilia catigua barks have two effects related to male sexual activity. Studies in animals have observed that they cause vasodilation in the cavernous penial body similar to sildenafil, active in Viagra. Yohimbine, a platelet activating factor (PAF) alkaloid, leads to a reduction in platelet adhesion, contributing to vasodilation of the penile artery, increased blood flow to the corpus cavernosum and prolongation of the erection time. In addition, they act on neurons promoting decreased receptivity of neurotransmitters, particularly serotonin and dopamine, acting as an antidepressant and physical stimulant. Taken together, such effects should prove to be extremely beneficial to elderly patients with erectile dysfunction due to genital vascular problems and mild depressive states, conditions very common in middle-aged men.

Antioxidant activity:

Experimental studies in vitro and in animal models, suggest the antioxidant potential of Trichilia catigua in its pharmacological activity especially to the prevention of neurological disorders associated with oxidative stress and reduction of blood flow. Ethanolic extract has been shown to inhibit the production of reactive oxygen species (EROS) in mouse brain cells, suggesting the protective effect attributed especially to the polyphenolic content of the plant.

Stimulating flacons should also be avoided for the same reason. People who already use vasodilators, patients with heart problems, hypertensives, and those who have hemophilia should talk to their doctor before taking catuaba. It is also not targeted to those who use synthetic fluoxetine-based antidepressants and derivatives.

Although there are no extensive studies on the risks of excessive consumption of catuaba, it is documented that it can lead to mydriasis (dilation of the pupil), elevating intraocular pressure and being contraindicated in people who have narrow-angle or closed-angle glaucoma. High doses may increase heart rate and blood pressure, and may cause symptoms such as anxiety, dizziness, headache, irritability, and insomnia. In addition, it is contraindicated and should be used by medical follow-up in patients with renal or hepatic dysfunction, hypertension, heart disease and psychiatric diseases.
