What is Mamajuana?

Just What is Mamajuana?

A play on a word perhaps? That was my first thought when I serendipitously came across a discreet ad for mamajuana, while ordering food in a quaint little shop. Of course I thought immediately about the more popular '....juana' also known as weed, maryjane, etc.

Mamajuana was being sold in a 12 ounce bottle. Should I try it? Should I just go ahead and get a bottle and let the chips fall where they may? Well, no, as always I must do some research - and after doing so, I am glad--being a woman and all--that I did not buy a bottle and guzzle. Anyway...

Get to the point - what is mamajuana?

Originally made by the Taino Indians, mamajuana is a beverage that seems to have several different recipes, depending on whether it comes from the Dominican Republic, Haiti or one of the Islands.

What is in the recipe?

It is made by boiling certain herbs and roots to make a tea and adding honey to sweeten. In fact, authentic mamajuana can be made with as many as 20 different herbs and roots.

So why, as a woman, are you glad you didn't buy it and guzzle?

It seems the main purpose of mamajuana is to correct impotency. Mamajauana, it turns out, is also known as Viagra Dominicana. There are a number of recipes, but overwhelmingly, it is said to stimulate the male libido.

How has the recipe changed?

Added to the boiled herbs, roots and honey now, is wine and rum - a half and half mixture. The herbs and roots can be bought dry and you add your own honey, rum (ideally overproof - like 151 proof), and red wine, and some have cinnamon added. Or you can buy a bottle of prepared mamajuana. What I saw was a bottle of a prepared drink - a commercial product.

What are some of the herbs and roots?

They include canalilea (a Dominican cinnamon), Bitter ginger, Batata, Bejuco de Costilla, Bejuco de Indio, true yam/yname, Anamu and many other herbal ingredients. Some freshly made drinks may include sea foods.

How is it served?

It can be served warm, over ice, mixed with soda or with juice. One shot of the freshly prepared mamajuana is said to be enough.

Where is it sold?

Buy it all over the Dominican Republic, probably online - and if you live in Brooklyn, New York City, like I do, you can buy it - and everything else.

So not for women at all?

Actually, this is an old formula and the recipe can change a bit to suit the health condition - so think of it as a healthy herbal drink. Certain herbs are said to be beneficial if you want to get pregnant, for arthritis, to energize, to help with agility, clear the head, cure the flu, correct ovarian and prostate disorders, remove internal parasites, and my favorite - the use of Bejuco de Indio which, when used by men - gets the bottom part of the body vibrating (I'd like to see this) and helps release pheromones.

Does it work?

As a woman, I don't know, but I think it would be fun to say to a guest real fast "Hey, you wanna try some of this mamajuana?" Depending on the caliber of your guest, they may think you are offering another product and quickly say "Yes!" - so this may just be a fun thing to do.

And yes, if I come across a mamajuana product created for a woman, say to energize me, I'd try it. I'm a believer in herbs. How can you go wrong with honey, cinnamon, wine, overproof rum, and 20 herbs and roots?

Meanwhile, if you are interested in other interesting beverages, perhaps a little less complicated, you can try the lettuce tea recipe, below, which calls for one ingredient. Or take a look at some of the other links to beverages of interest:

First of all....you get a five star rating just for using the word serendipitously! lol This is fabulous!! I would buy this stuff just for the name and now I'm going to have to be on the look out for it. Seriously..who has ever heard of such a thing? LOVE it! Brilliant hub as always!

That is so interesting, it seems every culture has had their own natural viagra for a while. I went to Cali, Colombia not too long ago and they sell this awesome drink called "jugo de borojo" which is their local aphrodisiac; I don't know if it fulfills the viagra promise but it is delicious at the very least.


BkCreative profile image

BkCreative 6 years ago from Brooklyn, New York City Author

So true C_Pinto - every culture relies on nature for everything. One of the things about living here in NYC is that every culture on earth lives here and there is a natural cure for everything. I am learning so much. And it's exciting. Honestly, were I a man, I'd be afraid to take viagra and would look for something else.

Thanks for writing and sharing the Columbian information!

Ohh .. What a hub!! Reading the headline, I was thinking it to be something aweful but reading your hub, I can understand that it is a wonderful indigenous product!!

It was so much fun dreamreachout - coming across this product a couple weeks back - just by chance - and it's been around forever it seems. Perhaps, I'll go back now and buy a bottle just to have - a great conversation piece. Thanks so much for your kind words!

You always come across the most interesting things BkCreative. Now I am going to have to keep a look out for this. My husband is of Cuban and Domincan descent and he laughed out loud when I called him and asked if he had ever heard of Mamajuana.

He used to live in N.Y. city as well and would frequently go and visit family in the Dominican Republic so he was familiar with this - though he has never tried it. It sounds like a good product to keep in mind - just in case ;)

BkCreative 6 years ago from Brooklyn, New York City Author

Fabulous Veronica Allen! I'm sure all the older people your husband knows, know all about using mamajuana. NYC has a huge Domincan community - all over. We can find the real stuff here in the City. I think I find so much interesting stuff Veronica Allen, just because I live here in the City - everything is here. Everything!

Thank you timorous! Natural has been here forever. Too bad we've been steered away from it in the name of pharmaceutical profit. But, isn't it great to know, that if you need it, not that you do, that it'll be there! Yay!

My goodness what a creative, fun name for a product, its bound to do well in sales for those who want to get some kind of kick out of a drink! I tried the lettuce tea, by the way, two nights ago and last night, and on the first evening, I was too sleepy, like if I had taken a sedative. Very cool how it works, so thanks again for sharing.

BkCreative 6 years ago from Brooklyn, New York City Author

It is that name Bingskee - that caught my attention in the shop - and made me laugh. I was thinking the same thing - how clever. Although I can't help but to think that the word 'mama' is important because mama has always been the herbalist and healer.

Yes, Darlene Sabella, we can have fun with it - and it would make a fun gift. I am curious about the taste though and will have to investigate that a little further.

Thanks carmelloyoshi - now we know. Next time I am in that restaurant I am going to ask some questions.

It is fun VioletSun - and I thank the hubber theherbivorehippi for suggesting I write about it - because it does have such a fun name. I am soooooo glad you are giving us an update about the lettuce tea. There were two nights I had to get up at 6am - and usually I am up until after midnight - and just the thought of 6am - stressed me out and I could not sleep. But the tea - worked ever so gently. It does have sedative effects. Ah, nature - everything we need - is there!

You're welcome Hello, hello. Hope you find it and let us know what you think!

Thanks for the comments. This was a fun topic to research and write about.

OMG - that is hilarious - I wonder if it would make women's lower parts vibrate? Yikes! I'm almost tempted to buy it and ask Bob to be my so-called guinea pig but I don't think he would think that was very funny.....I think by adding liquor to it it would be much like the old 'remedies' sold in the traveling show - if you add enough alcohol to something, I think it can 'cure' just about anything. The 'patient' probably is so snockered they'd believe they were better no matter what else was in the preparation! Too clever a hub....thanks for sharing.

BkCreative profile image

BkCreative 6 years ago from Brooklyn, New York City Author

You know angelnwu - I am tempted to buy a bottle of the commercial stuff and see what happens - it is probably such a mild version of the real stuff - surely minus that overproof rum - but sure - next time I am in that little restaurant - I'll get a bottle. It was such a manly restaurant that they may discourage me from buying it - but then I can ask a lot of questions.

So true akirchner - I am sure liquor will cure a whole bunch of what ails us - and for sure help us pass out and rest enough to heal. If you do buy it...and get Bob to try it...will you report back to us? I'm so glad you enjoyed the hub and got a kick out of it.

Thank you Paradise7 - I'm glad you found it a fun hub - I so enjoyed researching it.

For sure Coolmon2009 - I'm sure that name is a great selling feature! It certainly got my attention.

Yes, Chris Eddy111 - what's old is all brand new again - and we are all probably better for it!

It seems nancy_30, there are a number of places online that sell mamajuana. If you google just the one word - mamajuana - you'll find a lot of options. There are commercial brands and you can also buy the herbal blend, which sounds ideal, and then add your own honey, and perhaps wine and rum.

You're welcome rls8994. You and me both - imagine a vibrating lower body? Sounds like a lot of fun - something to catch on film!

LOL LOL a vibrating lower body . . hummm. Anyway rated up, bookmarked and shared. I do so enjoy reading your hubs on herbs. Their informative, visually stimulating and you're so knowledgeable.

Mamajuana . . that is a new one. I wouldn't mind picking some up for women myself for enegry promotion, but with the alcohol content you should receive a feeling of general well being.

Beautifully done hub my friend

I'm a big fan of herbal teas - and of you. I believe the aururveda (sp?) teaches that when you participate in your own cure you heal faster and it lasts longer so whenever you can you're supposed to make your own tea, grind your own herbs etc. grow em and pick em too! I use raspberry leaf a lot. Lots of herbs have b vitamins that are so healing. Never tried lettuce tea, but I will. Thanks for this info. Sadly, I probably wouldn't get to try out the results if I tried mamajuana for women! lol


BkCreative profile image

BkCreative 6 years ago from Brooklyn, New York City Author

Thanks so much for your comments and input. It just makes soooo much sense - get involved in your own healing. We've turned everything over to someone else - like a doctor - it sounds so irresponsible. Who knows us better than...well, us. Yes, lets makes our own tea and grind our own herbs - we are sooo worth it. And I'm sure I need more vitamin B.

A million thanks!

I, too, thought the title contained a typo, and needless to say, that got my attention right away. I wonder how it got its name, meaning roughly in English, Mommy Jane? This thought makes me almost howl: Must women be the ones to take care of even "that"? Super Hub, BK. Thanks for broadening my world!

BkCreative 6 years ago from Brooklyn, New York City Author

You're welcome Sally Trove - and you raise a good point about the name of Mommy Jane. It seems women have always been the nutritionists and healers. This is certainly true of my mother and grandmother and all the elder women and every ancient culture I've traveled and lived in. Of course there are many women around the world who will not put up with a flaccid man - something has to be done!!!

mamajuana has positive effects on the libido, for men AND women. It is because of the tannins.

It also seem to help against the flu and hardly gives hangovers.

You should try it. I personally prefer it in cocktails

Wow! Thank goodness it was tea! I thought the hub was about a new variant of another thing that sounds like mamajuana. Perhaps they're both made of plant leaves that they have almost similar names. Anyway, perhaps this would also be addictive for men once they know what it can do to them.

Ah hah! I bet it is addictive to many men - who know what it is good for! Good point there PaperNotes.

Thanks for commenting!

This sounds great. Can't wait to try it. When we return to our place in NYC, this will be on my shopping list. I love to try new drinks and foods. As long as they are healthy and as you say, how can you go wrong with herbs.
