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 treat many other general health conditions including memory loss and anti-ageing.

But it is primarily valued as a herb for better erections, as an aphrodisiac, and for fatigue, according to Dr Ray Sahelian in Natural Sex Boosters (Square One Publishers, 2004.) Dr Sahelian recommends it is best used in conjunction with other sexual health herbs like tribulus terrestris.

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.”

Horny Goat Weed’s Secret
Horny goat weed contains icariina 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. 


Herbal Ignite, the popular supplement for erectile dysfunction, contains horny goat weed and tribulus terrestris.
