» Horny Goat Weed

What is it?

Epimedium is a flowering herb which is popularly known as horny goat weed. The plant derives its name from its most active component, epimedium. This is present in the leaves, which has been in use in China, parts of Europe, and South East Asia since ancient times. Traces of icariin are found in horny goat weed supplements, which stimulate and increase the nitric oxide level present in a human body. This helps in the relaxation of muscles.

What does it do?

Horny goat weed is used for menopausal pain and discomfort, erectile dysfunction (ED), low libido, allay fatigue, and other sexual problems. Although earlier goat weed uses were just based on beliefs, recent studies and research have proven that extracts of this herb restricts the blood circulation in the penis by blocking the functions of an enzyme. Basically, epimedium functions like a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. Benefits of goat weed also include treatments of hardening of arteries and osteoporosis. However, as research on horny goat weed is still in progress and not yet fully proved, experts don’t consider this supplement a safe and effective treatment.
