Attributed with many different qualities, Catuaba has a long history of use in South America as an aphrodisiac. First attributed with the discovery, the Tupi Indians of the Amazon have used the bark of the Erythroxylum catuaba tree in many concoctions for hundreds of years. The bark is considered the only part of the tree that has the herbal properties attributed with this species. Over the passing of time, many folk songs have been composed by the indigenous peoples of the rainforest praising the benefits of Catuaba. Presently this prepared ingredient is big business all over the world giving a valuable source of income to those who harvest from the Catuaba tree.
Native to Northern Brazil, this small vigorous tree grows to a height of around 2-4 metres, produces yellow to orange flowers, a deep green long leaf and a dark yellow inedible fruit.
