2. Weight loss. Early research suggests that taking a specific combination product containing damiana, guarana, and yerba mate might reduce body weight in people who are overweight.

3. Headaches.

4. Bedwetting.

5. Depression.

6. Nervous upset stomach.

7. Constipa.

8. tionBoosting mental and physical stamina.



Risks and Side Effects

Although damiana seems to be safe when used in small to moderate amounts, high doses have been associated with certain serious side effects in some cases. Side effects that can occur when taking very high doses around 200 grams can include changes in blood sugar, hypoglycemia, convulsions and other symptoms similar to those caused by poisoning.



It’s recommended that women who are pregnant or nursing avoid using damiana since there isn’t yet research showing that it is safe in these situations. If you are diabetic, commonly experience hypoglycemia, have recently undergone surgery, are taking pain-killing medications or are taking insulin or antidiabetic drugs, then avoid using it. Always speak with your doctor first about whether it may be safe to use if any of these situations apply to you.
