The plant is part of the genus Fibrolief Review Epimedium, with several varieties growing in many parts of China. It also grows in other regions of Asia and other parts of the world, where it's also known as barrenwort, Bishop's Hat, inyokaku, Rowdy Lamb Herb, and Fairy Wings.Western medicine has long disregarded the legitimacy and efficacy of traditional Chinese medicine, until it was begrudgingly acknowledged that acupuncture was not quackery. Today, it's available in tablet, capsule and tea forms. Some studies have found that the active flavanoids in Horny Goat Weed may work on the body in much the same way as the active compound l-arginine, in that it increases nitric oxide levels in the bloodstream, causing the relaxation of the muscles around the blood vessels and allowing more blood flow to the corpus cavernosum (the spongy structures in the penis that contain all the blood vessels)-creating a stronger, longer lasting erection, and may even lengthen and thicken the penis!Some clinical studies have confirmed that active compound in the plant, known as icariin, inhibits the PDE-5 enzyme, which is same method used by the active ingredient in Viagra. Because horny goat weed is an all natural herb, negative side effects are rare (none were specifically documented) and does not interfere with any prescription medications.In the few studies that have been conducted, active compounds in the herb have been shown to have a variety of effects on the body which may affect different organs and systems. Some of these flavanoids may affect bone density (this the plant has been used to treat osteoperosis in women) and the immune system. In test-tube experiments, other flavonoids found in the plant inhibit estrogen and increase testosterone levels, improving sex drive and promoting proper kidney function.
