    Anyone had any experience with Muira Puama, also known as Ptychopetalum olacoides. What was your dosage, did you take bark, a powdered extract in a capsule or a tincture.
    Thanks

    It works well, it's stimulating like kratom or cocaine, dose can be 2-5 gram powder. If you take it everyday it gets stronger everyday, after 3-4 days you get over-stimulation, very horny and loose much sleep, it causes insomnia, simply stays to long in the system, I stopped using it because of that.

    Well, SWIM gave this one a shot finally and does not feel any more stimulated or horny. I have swallowed 1.5 g of an extract tar so far (very reputable vendor, though I plan to try the raw material just to be sure) and not a hind of an effect.
    I have read that this product is high in L-dopa, so maybe I am just dopamine depleted and will become a normal person again ?

    I will try again sometime at a higher inital dose. Maybe it is a weak extract. I have heard it is synergistic with catuaba bark, so I will try to track some of that down.
    Any other experiences with either ?

    Muira Puama is one of swim's favorite libido boosters. It makes me very very horny and passionate. Catuaba bark was also in swim's formula and she likes that as well. I took her formula in a capsule that contained several other libido-boosting supplements. Macuna Pruriens contains L-dopa and was also in the formula. I find this formula to work well and make her into a wild woman. It seems to have the same effect on men also. It could be that snapper needs a bigger dosage or use a combination for greater effects.

    Perhaps a combination. In irritation at the lack of effects, I took about 5 g of extract, and still nothing. It's also supposed to be a mild stimulant, and none of that either. I will try a different source and see if it is just the batch and will get raw plant material too ...
    Betsym, has Muira Puama alone worked for you, or only in combo ?

    Snapper, Muira Puama alone has worked for me but I like to take one product with everything combined. Swim can tell You which one if you send a PM. Swim's favorite product has several things like the Muira Puama, all working together toward the same goal.
