Epimedium Powder



While you may not have heard of Horny Goat Weed or Epimedium before, you’ve probably heard of male performance enhancing medications like Sildenafil, or Viagra, and Vardenafil, or Levitra. The interesting thing about Epimedium is that it produces the same effects in men with erectile dysfunction as these drugs do. In fact, the only difference between the two is the fact that drug therapies for erectile dysfunction are relatively new, while Epimedium has been in use for thousands of years.

Like male performance enhancing drugs, the primary target of Epimedium is type 5 phosphodiesterase, or PDE-5, an enzyme that breaks down cyclic guanosine monophosphate, or cGMP. This is important for you to know because cGMP depletion is the deflating factor involved in erectile dysfunction. An erection cannot occur without the release of sufficient amounts of nitric oxide to dilate blood vessels. If there isn’t enough cGMP available, nitric oxide release can’t happen. Epimedium contains a substance called icariin, which effectively suppresses PDE-5.

Bodybuilding Benefits of Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed):

Horny Goat Weed is a great source of the testosterone mimetic, Icariin. Research on Icariin has shown it to increase circulating testosterone levels as well as improve reproductive organs, making it a great therapeutic for hypoandrogenic states (like right after a steroids cycle).

On top of the testosterone mimetic capabilities of icariin, it also has some very interesting metabolites. In vivo research has shown icariin to metabolize into icaritin and desmethylicaritin. What’s great about these guys is the fact that they are very strong estrogenic receptor antagonists.

Bone and Muscle Benefits

According to Herbal-Supplement-Resource.com, epimedium supplements can also benefit the muscle and skeletal systems within the body. Epimedium as a supplement features ingredients that can help manage cortisol levels within the blood. As a result, a reduction of bone deterioration and an increase in muscle mass can occur within the body since cortisol levels directly affect these body structures.


Researchers at China’s Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Pharmacy studied the anti-aging effects of flavonoids, or colorful antioxidants, derived from Epimedium plants on laboratory animals. They reported that all important age-related metabolites like unsaturated fatty acids, saturated fatty acids and amino acids showed evidence of being reset to a younger level after the administration of the Epimedium extracts. They concluded that the anti-aging effects might be caused by the intervention on lipid metabolism and its property of anti-oxidation.

Erectile Dysfunction

As the name suggests, horny goat weed has been used not only as an aphrodisiac but also to treat erectile dysfunction. A study in Milan published in the October 2008 issue of the “Journal of Natural Products” synthesized a new molecule from icariin that inhibited phosphodiesterase 5 in vitro. The researchers believe it could have the same effect on erectile tissue in the penis, in much the way Viagra works.


Traditional Medicinal Uses & Health Benefits of Epimedium

The name “Horny goat weed” is based on a colorful Chinese legend.

Epimedium, also known as Yin Yang Huo or Horny Goat Weed, is a powerful remedy in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been used for thousands of years to promote male potency, libido, and as an aphrodisiac. In Chinese medicine, Horny Goat Weed is named Yin Yang Huo in honor of the mythical yin yang creature that achieved 100 sexual climaxes each day.

Modern Chinese herbal medicine uses epimedium (usually in combination with other herbs) not just to treat impotence, but also for asthma, bronchitis, cervical dysphasia, congestive heart failure, leucorrhoea, leukopenia, and viral infections of the heart. It is officially listed by the Chinese Academy of Medial Sciences as one of an elite group of herbs that slow down aging and promote longevity. Perhaps even more important have been the recent discoveries that Epimedium has powerful immune-modulating activity.

Traditional Chinese MedicineTCM practitioners use this herb used to increase the Yang energies, for instance, it would be used to enhance male sexual performance. Recent research has confirmed that Horny goat weed can increase sperm production and stimulate sexual desire.
