Horny goat weed extract is sold over the counter. The active ingredient is icariin, the extract of a Epimedium plant that’s reported to benefit men who have ED. It’s sold as a tablet, capsule powder, and tea.


Horny goat weed extract is also used to treat: high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), low libido in men and women’s symptoms associated with menopause osteoporosis’, brain injury, hay fever, fatigue. Icariin inhibits the activity of the PDE5 that’s blocking dilation of the arteries in the penis. This allows blood to fill the arteries and the three cylinders in the penis and create an erection. The prescription medication sildenafil (Viagra) works in much the same way.

 Epimedium 1

Horny goat weed has a long history of use in traditional Eastern medicine. According to legend, its name came about because a goat herder noticed his flock became sexually stimulated after eating the plant.

The botanical name for horny goat weed is Epimedium. It’s also called yin yang huo, barrenwort, rowdy lamb herb, randy beef grass, and brain tonic of the immortals. The plant is native to parts of China, Japan, and Korea.

Today, it’s widely grown as an ornamental plant in many areas of the world, including the United States.

 

As with many supplements, the claims about the effectiveness of horny goat weed are expansive. As is also true with many supplements, research on the effects of horny goat weed on humans is limited.

A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine investigated its effects on rats. Researchers found that rats treated with purified extract of horny goat weed showed improved erectile function.

Another study found that icariin is effective in inhibiting human PDE5, the substance that blocks erections, in test tubes. It also determined that sildenafil (Viagra) is 80 times more potent than icariin.

 

The verdict is mixed on the effectiveness of horny goat weed. It appears to have some beneficial properties. However, more research is needed to learn if it’s effective and safe for the general public.
