Horny Goat Weed for Men’s Health
Horny goat weed has long been used in Asian medicine for erectile dysfunction in men and low libido and menopausal symptoms in women, and increasingly it is being discovered in the West as the best herbal sexual tonic.
A study published in the 2004 Asian Journal of Andrology concluded that four weeks of treatment with icariin, one of goat weed’s active ingredients, can improve erectile function.
That isn’t surprising, because icariin is a flavonoid complex with similar pharmacological action to erectile drugs used in Western medicine.
According to a paper published in the Journal of Huazhong University Science and Technology in 2006, icariin behaves like a PDE5 inhibitor, which means that it blocks an enzyme that inhibits blood flow to the penis.
Goat Weed for Men’s Sexual Performance
According to the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database, active ingredients in horny goat weed might:
- Boost hormonal activity
- Improve blood vessel tone
- Increase immunity
Goat weed for men is used for treating sexual performance problems such as:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Premature ejaculation
- Low libido
Goat weed works by increasing blood flow to the penis, by increasing nitric oxide, dopamine and serotonin – all of which play an important role in orgasm – and improving heart function and reducing blood pressure.
Goat Weed for Men’s Bone Health
Horny goat weed is also used for managing osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
An age-related loss in bone mineral density in both men and women has become a worldwide health problem, according to a May 2011 paper offered in “Osteoporosis International.”
Hip fractures – directly related to osteoporosis – have increased during the last 50 years.
Several studies have shown horny goat weed reduces bone loss due to hormonal change and helps bone rebuild when it has become fragile.
A clinical trial described in the July 2007 issue of the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research tested the ability of horny goat weed to prevent bone loss.
Postmenopausal women received either horny goat weed (botanical name Epimedium) or placebo for two years. Women given the supplement showed less bone loss than those given a placebo.
Goat Weed Prevents Bone Loss
Goat weed treatment also decreased a chemical known to indicate bone loss.
The Livestrong website also reports goat weed keep your bones strong. A laboratory study published in the 2002 Chinese Journal of Stomatology found that goat weed inhibits bone resorption, or bone loss.
Goat Weed for Men – Heart & Brain Health
Other uses for goat weed for men include:
- High blood pressure

Goat Weed For Men’s Immunity
A genus of goat weed called Epimedium sagittatum may stimulate your immune system and also enhance DNA synthesis in those with suppressed immune systems, according to The Pharmacology of Chinese Herbs, by Kee Chang Huang and Walter Michael Williams.
This may have an important application in cases of HIV because the anti HIV-agent AZT can cause a reduction in DNA synthesis.
Epimedium may help reverse DNA inhibition in people taking AZT and reduce toxicity due to AZT, note Huang and Williams.
However, this supplement should be used only under a doctor’s direct supervision if taken for such purposes.
