Horny Goat Weed

If you’re just starting to look into natural libido boosters, you’ve probably found your way to Phalpro with one question in your mind: ‘Horny goat weed’? Really?

Yes, really! Its official name is epimedium, but the ‘horny goat weed’ nickname didn’t come out of nowhere. Here are a few things worth knowing about this plant, and how it might help you out in the bedroom.

What Is Horny Goat Weed?

Native to Japan, China and Korea, epimedium has been a staple of traditional Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years, and is often used as a libido enhancer, and to help women relieve their PMS or menopause symptoms. It can also be used to alleviate erectile dysfunction. It is picked wild, not farmed, and only the leaves are harvested, allowing the plants to grow back naturally. While the leaves themselves are edible off the plant, epimedium is extremely bitter, and is often sold in powdered or capsule form.

Horny goat weed acquired its raunchy nickname from its long use in Chinese medicine, even entering local mythology as the favorite food of a creature rumored to have a hundred orgasms per day!

What Can Horny Goat Weed Do for Me?

Epimedium’s strongest active ingredient is icariin, which works by helping relax your smooth muscle tissue. This helps your body achieve a more relaxed state, rather than being involuntarily tensed up when all you want to do is relax and enjoy your partner. Smooth muscle tissue includes that around the heart and blood vessels, promoting better blood flow to where you need it most. Icariin also inhibits the production of enzymes that interfere with a man’s ability to hold an erection – exactly the same thing that the active ingredient in Viagra does!

In addition to its bedroom benefits, horny goat weed has also been used to treat osteoporosis, fatigue, and high blood pressure, among many other ailments.

How Safe Is Horny Goat Weed To Use?

As with any supplement or medication, have a talk with your doctor before you start using epimedium. If you have low blood pressure, you may want to avoid it. Likewise, if you’re allergic to the Epimedium plant family, horny goat weed will do you far more harm than good! Taking horny goat weed during pregnancy, or while nursing, isn’t recommended.

In rare cases, irregular heartbeat has been reported as a side effect. It’s far more likely you’ll experience somewhat increased sweating, as well as a stimulatory effect from taking horny goat weed. Since icariin also stimulates nitric oxide production, many long-term users have developed a drop in blood pressure over time, so be careful.

Your doctor can help you determine the right dose, if any, for you to get the maximum benefit both in and out of the bedroom.
