What’s in Mushroom Revival’s Herbal Aphrodisiac Tincture?
Made with 100% mushroom fruit bodies, no mycelium on grain, double-extracted and certified organic for a potent blend of herbs and mushrooms, our Bow Chicka Wow Wow tincture is sure to spice up those steamy nights.
Maca root (Lepidium meyenii)
Ancient Andean shepherds fed Maca root to their livestock and ate some themselves to promote fertility and as a nutritious supplement. The Incas domesticated Maca and believed that it contained properties to boost energy, elevate mood, and increase resistance to diseases. Modern studies have indeed proven that Maca root increases fertility and boosts energy. Not only does Maca increase energy, it specifically increases sexual energy—which is why it is a go-to herb in herbal aphrodisiac tincture formulas.
Damiana herb (Turnera diffusa)
If you feel a lot of anxiety around sex and performance, this herb might be the solution you’re looking for! Damiana is classically used as an herbal aphrodisiac that also aids in adapting to chronic stress. For hundreds of years, people have been using this herb to treat impotence, infertility, erectile dysfunction, and low libido. This bitter herb invigorates the nerves, brain and genitals, and is also noted for supporting anxiety, depression, and neuralgia.
Cacao bean (Theobroma cacao)
Cacao bean: the origin of chocolate, the flavor of love. The Aztecs and Mayans drank cacao, which they called “bitter water,” for its aphrodisiac properties. The Spanish brought this bean over to Europe after learning of its worth. Studies have shown that Cacao is heart medicine, supporting heart function, and treating heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. It helps with fatigue, lethargy, and digestive problems (soothes stomach after eating), and it promotes physical and psychological well-being. In our herbal aphrodisiac tincture, cacao releases endorphins to get you in the mood.
Ashwagandha root (Withania somnifera)
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic root, a term coined by Russian scientist N. V. Lazarez and his student, Israel I. Bekhman. Adaptogens have properties that help the body adapt to physical and emotional stress. Ashwagandha root is used as a sexual tonic, aphrodisiac, sedative to the nerves, and to promote fertility. This root supports energy building, stamina and endurance. It is also used for concentration, headache relief, enhanced immunity, and stress resistance.
Rose petal (Rose centifolia)
What do you typically give to a lover on Valentine’s Day? Rose is a symbolic representation of love, affection and romance. It is said that the Egyptians used rose petals as perfume and to “woo” lovers. This flower opens the heart emotionally and spiritually. Rose is an aphrodisiac, heart tonic, and cardiac support, with antibacterial and antioxidant properties. The essential oils give off a calming and intoxicating odor, which we think you’ll ♥ in our herbal aphrodisiac tincture.
Sweet Cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum)
The Ancient Chinese used Cinnamon for fever, diarrhea and menstrual properties. Cinnamon bark promotes healthy circulation, aiding in the flow of blood to all the right places, thus supporting erectile dysfunction. As an aphrodisiac, Cinnamon also boosts libido. Its antimicrobial properties from essential oils assist the body in keeping a healthy immune system even after those late nights.
Cordyceps mushroom (Cordyceps militaris)
Native to the Himalayan mountains and revered as one of the most common treatments in parts of Nepal, Cordyceps mushroom supports healthy libido, energy, and stamina. This mushroom helps boost your body’s ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production and your lung capacity/oxygen production to increase your athletic and sexual performance. Cordyceps is also a powerful aphrodisiac and adaptogenic mushroom that helps your adrenal system combat stress and fatigue, increase your energy, and put you in the mood. That’s why cordyceps is an essential ingredient in our herbal aphrodisiac tincture.
Our certified organic Cordyceps are grown and processed with love on our farm in South Deerfield, MA, USA. We use 100% fruiting bodies — no mycelium grown on grain in our medicine. Cordyceps can be found in our Manifest, Mycelial Brain, Bow Chicka Wow Wow, Mush 10, Cordyceps, and Mushroom Immunity (coming soon!) blends. Interested in more info on cordyceps? Visit our blog post!
Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum)
Reishi, known as the “mushroom of immortality,” has been used in traditional Chinese homes for 4,000 years to promote longevity. Reishi mushroom is considered warming and acts to nourish and support the nervous and cardiovascular systems. Reishi is used to improve sleep and enhance immunity, so that you can “get down tonight” and not worry about staying up too late or catching a cold.
