HORNY GOAT WEED

          Horny goat weed, an herb, has many names but is often called epimedium. This time-tested herb can be extracted from many species of the epimedium plant, including epimedium (grandiflorum, brevicorum, and sagittatum) available in Japan, China, and Korea. Horny goat weed is also known as yin yang huo, barrenwort, rowdy lamb herb, randy beef grass, and brain tonic of the immortals, among others. With a 2,000-year history in traditional Chinese medicine, and now being used in the Western world, horny goat weed has been well-established as a solution to erectile dysfunction, primarily. Other uses related to sexual health include increased libido and reduced fatigue. The active ingredient in horny goat weed is icariin, which is extracted from the epimedium plant. There are around 60 species of epimedium, but only five of these are recorded and utilized as supplements for sexual health through the use of icariin.

 

Horny goat weed’s most-often used purpose is for erectile dysfunction.

          These difficulties are addressed through horny goat weed’s ability to inhibit PDE-5. Many times, erectile dysfunction can be caused by phosophodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5), an enzyme that blocks nitric oxide and cyclic guanosine monophophate (cGMP). These two substances, especially nitric oxide, are essential in erections. Known to allow the smooth muscles of the penis to relax, which will encourage blood flow into the penis, these substances are directly related to erection. As more blood flows to the penis, it increases in length, girth, and can be maintained for longer periods of time. In addition, horny goat weed supports erections due to its main ingredient, icariin, which blocks the enzyme, PDE-5, therefore allowing dilation of the arteries. With this enzyme blocked, blood flows into the spongy tissue that makes up the bulk of the penis, called the corpus cavernosa. Within this cave-like structure are two sections that run from the pelvic bone to the head of the penis, and fill with 90% of the blood flow that reaches the penis. These sections support erection of the penis from both sides and the bottom.

 

          When insufficient blood flow reaches these sections, erection will not occur, occurs but is not maintained, or is not as large, hard, or long as it could be.

 

Horny goat weed has been associated with many other sexual health benefits including increased testosterone, libido, blood circulation, lean muscle mass, and the decrease of bone loss and cortisol levels.

 

          Related to increased testosterone, horny goat weed’s active ingredient, icariin, a  prenyl-flavonoid compound, may inhibit PDE-5, therefore increasing nitric oxide which could result in increased testosterone.

          Phenyl-flavonoids, like icariin, also include antioxidant properties which can reduce some of the symptoms of aging and imitate estrogen in the body by serving as a natural phytoestrogen.

 

Other compounds included in horny goat weed are:

  •  Epimedium A, B, and C
  •  Desmethylicaritin and anhydroicaritin, which may increase libido, in a different way than caritin
  •  Ikarioside A and B
  •  Diphylloside A and B
  •  Sagittatoside B

 

Horny goat weed is considered to be a natural aphrodisiac and may reduce stress on the body by lowering cortisol.

With less stress hormone, issues such as lower libido, cognitive fatigue, and hormonal imbalances may be reduced. As horny goat weed creates a better balance between testosterone and estrogen increases in energy may result.

 

 

          Revisiting the main purpose of horny goat weed, erectile dysfunction, this herb may reduce hardened arteries, or atherosclerosis. As arteries become softer, they will widen, allowing nutrient and oxygen-rich blood to flow from the heart to other sections of the body, including the penis. Wider arteries are an excellent means of reaching larger penis size as more blood flow occurs. With less fat in the arteries that lead to hardening, blood pressure also decreases. As sexual encounters are pleasant, but stressful on the body, cardiovascular health is of great importance. With a stronger heart, concerns related to sexual relations are reduced, stamina is increased, and lower body fat can be reached with cardio exercises. As atherosclerosis is related to a sedentary lifestyle and obesity, among other things, reducing hardening may increase the satisfaction of both partners due to increased health.

 

          Overall, horny goat weed provides a plethora of sexual health benefits. With a history spanning centuries, this herb has a proven track record of benefits. Dosages and frequency vary depending on body type, weight, and desired result. Consulting with a physician is recommended for all male sexual enhancement products before use, as results differ and preexisting medical conditions may be present.

 

          Decreased penis size, low libido, and fatigue are conditions that can be improved with horny goat weed.
