Summary of Massularia acuminata
Primary information, health benefits, side effects, usage, and other important details
Massularia Acuminate is a chewing stick and herbal aphrodisiac from the Yoruba medicine in Nigeria.
It was investigated in the past for efficacy against gingivitis, but has recently been delved into for its aphrodisiac properties. Preliminary studies in rats suggest that this herb can increase testosterone and sexuality.
Not much data exists on it however.

How to TakeMedical Disclaimer
Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details
Based on rat studies, doses of 50mg/kg and 1,000mg/kg appear to increase testosterone while the higher dose is associated with some liver toxicity. Due to this, the estimated human doses based off of 50mg/kg would be:
550mg for a 150lb person
700mg for a 200lb person
900mg for a 250lb person
Due to having no human evidence at this moment in time, the above recommendations are naught but estimates.
