Can Horny Goat Weed Naturally Boost Sex Drive?

The Horny Goat Weed (lat. Epidemium) is an evergreen perennial herb originally from Asia, especially China, and the Mediterranean area. It is also called “barrenwort”, “bishop’s hat”, “fairy wing”, and “yin yang huh”. First described over 2,000 years ago in ancient classical Chinese medicinal text, it is used traditionally ever since.

It's been praised highly as a natural aphrodisiac, for enhancing sexual performance and libido, boosting testosterone in men, and treating sexual problems such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

The Horny Goat Weed is also used to treat high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, hay fever, mental and physical fatigue, lack of libido in men and women, pre-menopause and menopause problems, etc.

How Exactly Does Horny Goat Weed Work?

The herb contains phytochemicals that increase the blood flow in the sexual area, flavonoids, polysaccharides, sterols, phytoestrogens, alkaloids, and icariin, which is the main active constituent and a flavonoid called epimedin.

Icariin inhibits the action of PDE5 that blocks that dilatation of the arteries in the penis, allowing blood to fill the arteries and the cavities in the penis to create a strong and long lasting erection. This natural PDE5 inhibitor is actually very comparable with Viagra’s active synthetic component named sildenafil.

As a result, it's become a wildly popular choice of natural male and female sexual enhancement. Amazingly, it can provide vigor, endurance, sexual drive, sexual energy, and sexual vitality for both sexes!

Horny Goat Weed Supporting Studies

Icariin was found to act as a helper in treating erectile dysfunction in men, in a study led by Xin ZC, Kim EK, Lin CS, Liu WJ, Tian L, Yuan YM, and Fu J, at the Department of Urology, in Peking University, Beijing, in China, in 2003.

In 2006, a study at the Institute of the Traditional Medicine, School of Medicine, at the National Yang-Ming University showed that the Horny Goat extract caused a relaxation effect on the corpus cavernosum smooth muscle (penile tissue), which is great news for the future of treating erectile dysfunction.

In 2008, Dell’Agli M, from the Department of Pharmacological Sciences, University of Milan, Italy, discovered in a study that among several herbs that were traditionally used to treat impotency and erectile dysfunctions, icariin from Epidemium Brevicorum was the only active compound and has been declared a “promising candidate for future development.”

Also, Icariin was shown to increase the neurite length of the pelvic ganglia in a study published in 2010 by Shindel AW and colleagues, at the University of California, Knuppe Molecular Urology Laboratory, Department of Urology, School of Medicine, from San Francisco, California.

How to Naturally Power Up the Strength

The potency of Horny Goat Weed and stamina provided is increased when combined with Gingko Biloba, Maca and Muira Puama or Maca in particular.

Maca (Lepidiuuum meyenii) is not really a herb, but a root vegetable originally from Peru used as food and medicinal herb. It contains a variety of beneficial vitamins and minerals, such as selenium and magnesium.

But Maca is rich in phytohormones with powerful aphrodisiac properties that increase sex drive and stamina, relieve anxiety and depression, and alleviate menopause syndromes.
