Does Kalembu MamaJuana have an aphrodisiac effect?
I had this in the Dominican and it seemed to give me some effect.
There are many different ingredients used in the preparation of mamajuana depending on personal preferences and the region where it is made. In the first place you need rum, the better the quality, the better the end result. If a poor quality rum is used the mamajuana can give you a hangover and the taste will not be as good. The same goes for the honey and wine used. The most important ingredients are the plants used because these determine the taste and the effects. In general mamajuana is made with a combination of a variety of plants native to the Dominican Republic.
Most common are plants such as Gouania lupuloides (chewstick), Caesalpinia echinata (brazilwood), Cryptorhiza Haitiensis (canelilla leaf), Anamú (Petiveria alliacea), Anis Estrellado (Star Anise), Bohuco Pega Palo (Cissus verticillata), Bojuco Caro (Princess Vine), Marabeli, Clavo Dulce (Whole Clove), Maguey (Agave spp.) leaves, Serjania Polyphylla (basketwood) , Timacle (Chiococca alba)
There is no rule including or excluding any ingredient in making mamajuana. Nevertheless there are certain plants that should be used in order to give it the authentic mamajuana taste. - See more at: http://mamajuana.info/#sthash.hdOzPPut.dpuf
