Horny Goat Weed for Impotence

horny goat weed - impotence treatment

Horny goat weed is found throughout Asia and the Mediterranean and has been known for centuries in many cultures as a herb to increase libidoimprove erectile function and relieve menopausal symptoms, as well as many other general health conditions including memory loss and anti-ageing.

The Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences classified horny goat weed as a special class of herbs that can slow down ageing and contribute to longevity.

There are at least eight different species of epimedium, the botanical grouping to which horny goat weed belongs. Horny goat weed contains icariin, a PDE 5 inhibitor which helps blood flow to the penis. Erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra and Cialis are based on pharmaceutical grade PDE 5 inhibitors.

The US Patents board accepted that icariin in horny goat weed has been used in Chinese medicine to treat erectile dysfunction for hundreds of years, disallowing Viagra’s claim to be the first treatment for erectile dysfunction using PDE 5 inhibitors.

Chris Kilham medicinal plant researcher and author of the book Hot Plants, says horny goat weed is regarded by China’s top traditional practitioners as “the very best sexual tonic for both men and women.”

 

Although horny goat weed has traditional use as a treatment for kidney, joints and the liver, its principle use is for better erections, as an aphrodisiac and for fatigue, according to Dr Ray Sahelian in Natural Sex Booster (Square One Publishers, 2004)

 

Dr Sahelian says personal use as well as reports from his patients leads him to conclude: “Horny goat weed is, in fact, likely to make you horny! Most users will notice a mild to moderate sexual effect on the third to fourth day of use.”

 

He suggests horny goat weed works well in combination with other herbs for sexual health like tribulus terrestris and maca.

 

Most of the studies into the benefits of horny goat weed for erectile dysfunction have been by Chinese scientists and have not been reproduced in the West. One study quoted by Dr Sahelian with 22 patients with chronic renal failure on dialysis showed they reported horny goat weed had a sex-enhancing effect and improved their quality of life.

 

Horny Goat Weed Improves Penile Blood Flow

rabbits - horny goat weed impotence treatmentStudies on the effects of horny goat weed in rats and rabbits have given support to the view that horny goat weed helps boost blood flow to the penis (thus improving erections) by relaxing smooth muscle in the penile wall.

 

They concluded horny goat weed could also enhance the effects of PDE 5 inhibitor drugs like sildenafil and vardenafil.

 

Interestingly the rabbit study published in Nature magazine showed more purified extracts were less effective than “whole plant” and suggested there was a synergistic effect from whole ingredients rather than just a purified icariin extract.

 

The Livestrong website reports icariin behaves like a PDE5 inhibitor, which means that it blocks an enzyme that degrades a substance called cyclic GMP that resides in the cells that line the corpus cavernosum of the penis.

 

This matters because cyclic GMP is a messaging chemical that signals smooth muscle cells to relax to permit blood to flow into and expand the corpus cavernosum.

 

A study abstract published in the March 2006 issue of Urology reported that epimedium extract triggered penile erection in rats due to an increase in nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is required to achieve and maintain an erection because it triggers the release of enzymes that produce cyclic GMP.
