Horny Goat Weed consists of a group of plants belonging to the Epimedium genus that have been used in Chinese medicine for many centuries to assist in sexual health as an aphrodisiac 1. Other potential health benefits have been identified, with multiple studies suggesting usefulness of this group of plants to help manage osteoporosis 2, 3.

The alleged aphrodisiac properties of Horny Goat Weed are believed to be due to a key ingredient called Icariin. Icariin is believed to be a PDE5 inhibitor, which according to at least one study breaks down the smooth lining of blood vessels within the penis to promote its erection 4. In a study involving castrated rats it was allegedly shown that rats supplemented with Icariin had an increase in biomarkers associated with normal erectile function 5.

Another study allegedly found that Icariin extract from Horny Goat Weed may facilitate the regrowth of damaged nerves. It was allegedly found that rats which had damaged penile tissue that were subsequently administered Icariin displayed biomarkers indicative of penile nerve regrowth, suggesting potential neurotrophic (nerve repairing) properties of Icariin 6.

In a study examining the efficacy of Icariin and Horny Goat Weed for nerve regrowth, lesioned rats were divided into three groups and supplemented with either – 1) Horny Goat Weed, 2) pure Icariin extract, or 3) a placebo pill. It was allegedly found that the Horny Goat Weed and Icariin extract groups had greater regenerative effect in rats with lesions compared to placebo. Furthermore, the Horny Goat Weed supplemented group allegedly experienced greater lesion repair than the Icariin extract group, suggesting that Horny Goat Weed contains other phytochemicals in addition to Icariin that may be responsible for its alleged regenerative effects 7.

Besides the preliminary studies suggesting the use of Horny Goat Weed as an aphrodisiac and promoter of nerve regrowth, other interesting properties have been examined. One study suggested that Icariin may play a role in protecting against free-radical DNA oxidative damage 8. Another study examining this role of oxidative damage prevention allegedly found that mice supplemented with Icariin or Epimedium plant extracts from 12 months of age experienced an increased lifespan compared to control mice 9.

From these studies, it seems Horny Goat Weed may have promising effects, however unfortunately large scale human trials are lacking, with most evidence derived from studies in rats. Caution is strongly advised against combining Sildenafil (Viagra) and Horny Goat Weed, since both allegedly operate via a mechanism of PDE5 inhibition. One study allegedly showed potential adverse reaction between these two substances even at low dosages 10.

    :

    Well this does increase my stamina and erectile dysfunction so overall its good. Not as effective as viagra though, but much cheaper. I find I need to take 3 pills to get erection. The addition of all the other herbs in the product is a nice touch.
