Maganin Burantashi is a native Hausa-Fulani powder derived from the bark of the African tree Pausinystalia johimbe. It is known as Yohimbe in English and called agbo idagbon in Yoruba language. The plant is native to western and central Africa. Extracts from yohimbe have been used in traditional medicine in West Africa as an aphrodisiac and have been marketed in developed countries as dietary supplements.
The extracts contain the alkaloid yohimbine, an alpha-2 antagonist that has been studied for treating erectile dysfunction, but the whole bark of the tree was not studied until recently. In one recent study, pure Burantashi powder obtained from a local suya vendor in Lagos, Nigeria was extracted aqueously and studied on the renal circulation of Sprague-Dawley rats.
A lot of natural substances have historically been known as aphrodisiacs in Africa and Europe, like yohimbine and the mandrake plant, as well as ground rhinoceros horn in the Chinese culture and “Spanish fly” which is actually toxic. Chocolate, coffee, and honey are also believed to have aphrodisiac potential. Men and women have sought aphrodisiacs, agents that arouse or increase sexual response or desire, since the beginning of time. Aphrodisiacs may well be the one thing that crosses all barriers — race, culture, ethnicity, age — making it unanimous: We all want to have better sex.
Benefits of Maganin Burantashi
Popularly known as the herbal Viagra, Maganin Burantashi for centuries has been thought to possess aphrodisiac qualities. It works by stimulating nerve centers in the spine, thereby improving the capacity for erection without increasing sexual excitement. Incoming signals activate connector nerve cells (interneurons) to stimulate nearby parasympathetic neurons. These neurons then transmit erection-inducing signals from the sacral spine to the penile blood vessels. As long as this reflex arc remains intact, an erection is possible.
Side Effects of Maganin Burantashi
Unfortunately, maganin burantashi like many other medicinal herbs in the kayan maza bouquet also comes with some side effects. The side effects to taking this herb include anxiety, weakness, overstimulation, paralysis, and hallucinations. More importantly, A study conducted by School of Basic Medical Sciences, College of Medical Sciences, University of Benin and published in the Journal of Biology and Medicine, indicates that yohimbine (Burantashi) may have some deleterious effects on the kidneys at varied doses. Sounds like a large price to pay for the possibility of better sex, don’t you think?
Why is kidney health important?
The kidneys are a pair of organs located in the small of the back, one on either side of the spine. They are responsible for filtering and removing waste products from the body (as urine via the bladder), keeping bones healthy and looking after blood pressure. As we age we are at increasing risk of our kidneys working less well, but they may also work less well as a result of certain medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, or as a result of long term use of certain prescription medicines. It is not always possible to know what has caused a particular person’s kidneys to work less well.
Most people will not notice if their kidneys are working slightly less well than they used to because this does not usually cause symptoms or stop the kidneys from working. In most cases, kidney performance is affected in a mild way but remains stable for many years, while for a small minority of people, it worsens rapidly and will cause problems with their health. All kidney impairment, whether it be mild or severe, is nowadays referred to by doctors as ‘chronic kidney disease’. So before you consider buying kayan maza or burantashi consider the health effects. SEE: Best Herbal Cure For Premature Ejaculation In Nigeria
