If you were standing in the rainforest, looking straight up, Jatoba is one of those huge canopy trees towering 90 feet overhead. Its small red flowers produce an edible, odd, brown fruit pod. Its sap is gathered for incense, and a tea, made from its bark, is a favorite health and energy tonic among Amazonian lumberjacks.
According to Brazilian doctors, whoever drinks Jatoba becomes "strong and vigorous, always ready to work - and staying productive."
While Jatoba is also used for prostatitis, mouth ulcers and for bladder and yeast infections, it is not officially regarded as a direct aphrodisiac. However, I suppose a case could be made that a lethargic couple suffering from prostatitis and a yeast infection should possibly address these issues before expecting to move on to the more direct Aphrodisias.

In South America, Jatoba is typically mentioned for laryngitis, bursitis, hepatitis, excessive menstrual bleeding, dysentery, and athlete's foot.
