Catuaba (Trichilia catigua) is a hardwood tree, and member of the mahogany family, that is native to the Amazon Rainforest. The bark of the Catuaba tree has a long history of documented use, and it is still popularly used by Brazilian couples today.
It is thought that Catuaba was first discovered by the Tupi Indians - who call it ´The Tree of Love´ or the 'Tree of Togetherness´ - and have composed many songs in praise it. In Brazil it has been used for generations and is still one of South America´s most famous herbs.
The chemical constituents found in Catuaba include alkaloids, tannins, phytosterols, lignans, sequiterpines, and flavonoids. A Brazilian researcher documented (in 1958) that Catuaba contained the alkaloid yohimbine, but it is unclear exactly which species he was researching.
