Information on Horny Goat Weed

What is Horny Goat Weed?

Horny Goat Weed, otherwise known as Epimedium or Yinyanghuo derives its comical layman names from goats and sheep who acted hornier or friskier after eating the Epimedium herb that grew in their fields. It can also be known by its active ingredient, Icariin. Icariin has been shown to exert the majority of the aphrodisiac effects that Horny Goat Weed provides and it has also been shown to improve the testosterone levels in men when consumed in higher doses. Other compounds within the herb have shown that they can raise the levels of oestrogen in post-menopausal women. The Horny Goat Weed herb acts as an aphrodisiac for both genders.

Despite the comical name, Horny Goat Weed is an aphrodisiac that is able to increase the libido of men and women as well as having pro-erectile properties for men. It was first described in ancient classical Chinese medicinal texts and has been used in the Far East for millennia. Horny Goat Weed is still held in the highest of regards by traditional Chinese medicine and is gaining popularity all over the globe.

Icariin is not the most stable compound in the intestines due to the ever present enzymes in this area of the body. Icariin is rapidly digested into its respective metabolite via hydrolysis. However, co-ingestion of a lactose inhibitor preserves a greater amount of Icariin and increases its bioavailability. Icariin is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and has the ability to act as a neuroprotective substance as it inhibits the pro-oxidant and pro-inflammatory markers in response to stress. This is why Horny Goat Weed is also seen as cognitive booster.

Research has suggested that the Icariin found in Horny Goat Weed is effective at preventing osteoporosis as it is an osteogenic (bone-forming) substance. The metabolite of Icariin, Icaritin, has been shown to increase levels of oestrogen in post-menopausal women, but it has not been shown to increase oestrogen levels in men. This negates any concerns over its use as a testosterone booster. Horny Goat Weed can provide substantial differences in erectile potency as well as increasing testosterone levels. Studies have demonstrated that the active ingredient, Icariin, exerts pro-erectile properties and is more effective when consumed repeatedly. It is believed to be about half as potent as Viagra. When Horny Goat Weed is consumed along with Yohimbine, they share the same inhibitory mechanisms as Icariin and can be synergistically pro-erectile. This is theoretical based on other research and has not yet been clearly demonstrated.
