Horny Goat Weed, Testosterone, And Boosting Libido

Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium) is a potent testosterone booster as well as a libido booster that the company that creates Viagra tried to patent, but couldn’t due to it being a natural substance….

When you’re looking for a natural way to boost your testosterone levels as well as your libido, Horny Goat Weed, despite it’s suspiciously catchy and seemingly marketing-driven name, is actually quite potent.

The most potent aspect of Horny Goat Weed and it’s ability to boost libido is found in an ingredient within Horny Goat Weed called icariin.

Icariin mimics and increases testosterone. It also increases nitric oxide levels in the body, which increases bloodflow (obviously important for sexual function in men).

While much of its testosterone-boosting effects surround it’s icariin content, Horny Goat Weed also has 37 different flavonoids and is an extremely strong antioxidant, making it a legitimate ‘superfood’ if there is such a thing.

2. This study found that icariin  “inhibitory to all three PDE5 isoforms with similar IC50 values, which were approximately three times greater than those for zaprinast”, meaning that it inhibited the PDE-5 enzyme, making it a very potent erectile dysfunction ingredient.

3. This study on rats found that 80 mg’s/kg dose of icariin was able to triple the subjects testosterone levels.

4. This study was used against the Viagra Company’s patent as have the only PDE-5 inhibitor, meaning that icariin is also a strong PDE-5 inhibitor, not just Viagra’s synthetically produced one, and thus is also a source for natural erectile dysfunction relief in a natural substance. It also shows icariin’s potency for aiding erectile dysfunction.
