Right out of the gate, without debate from anyone who has tried it, this woody vine is an aphrodisiac for both women and for men.
Its white flowers are pollinated by butterflies, and produce flat bean pods. The wood, rich in essential oils, has a strong aroma like cloves. The wood when cut across displays a golden Maltese cross surrounded by dark red outer wood. The pattern itself is believed by some to be indicative of, and source of, the male and female aphrodisia the plant produces.
However, it is the mashed vine bark, which is actually used to produce the valuable alcohol extraction of phytonutrients. The Brazilian scientists discovered a unique phytonutrient in Clavo Huasca that they named Tinantina.
Clavo Huasca is a cornerstone of the two most popular aphrodisia/potency formulas in South America. Clavo Huasca is also used as a digestive aid, for fevers - and for rheumatism and arthritis.
