Horny goat weed is a pungent hardy perennial native to Korea, Japan and China renowned for its benefits for sexual health – in particular for improving erections and low libido and relieving menopausal symptoms. 

There are at least 50 sub species of the herb – botanical name epimedium – and most are endemic in China, but they have spread throughout the world as a garden plant for their attractive four-petalled flowers.

As well as horny got weed, other common names for the epimedium genus include barrenwort, bishop’s hat, fairy wings, rowdy lamb herb, and randy beef grass.

Only some of the wide range of epimedium plants are used as herbal sex tonics.

Herbal Ignite contains a type of horny goat weed with the botanical name epimedium brevicornu.
