Horny Goat Weed is one of the most popular supplements on the natural libido booster market at present day and it’s popularity keeps getting stronger and stronger. When most people hear the name Horny Goat Weed they have a quick laugh to themselves however behind this comical name is a very powerful sexual health supplement and one that commands respect in it’s field, so how does Horny Goat Weed actually work? (I hear you ask).
Well Horny Goat Weed is the funny but applicable name given to extract of the plant group called Epimedium, for obvious reasons the name Horny Goat Weed is more commercially apt than the name Epimedium which is somewhat a rather boring name in comparison.
Horny Goat Weed unlike many other natural alternative medicines has undergone a huge amount of studies, studies of which have proven that a single element derived from this plant is the hidden power behind this extract in terms of its sexual boosting properties.
This element is called icariin and icariin is contained in all of the various species of Epimedium plant. Icariin has two beneficial effects on the human body, both of which are very vital contributors to sexual health, especially male sexual health, which is what we are focusing this article on today. The powers of icariin come from it’s ability to replenish both the levels of nitric oxide delivery and testosterone delivery to the reproductive organs, both these two natural properties are vital to sexual health and now you will find out exactly how.
How Does Horny Goat Weed Work To Cure Impotence In Men?
Due to Horny Goat Weed containing icariin it is astonishingly good at boosting up the bodies natural transmission of Nitric Oxide (a naturally existent gas element within the human body). Nitric Oxide is the primary requirement in the equation of gaining a solid penile erection, the reason for this is that on successful transmission of Nitric Oxide the body acts by delivering blood around the body when and where necessary at any one time. This successful delivery of blood also includes the penis glans and so if a man suffers from low levels of Nitric Oxide transmission he will notice a definite reduction in blood delivery to the penis and also to other parts of the body too for example the muscles when working out.
Icariin is by far the most powerful lab tested 100% natural Nitric Oxide booster and so this is the primary reason why Horny Goat Weed is recommended for men suffering from Erectile Dysfunction problems.
How Does Horny Goat Weed Work To Increase Sex Drive In Men?
Just because Horny Goat Weed can cure Erectile Dysfunction in men, the above function doesn’t relate directly to its ability to also massively increase male sex drive. The key to why Horny Goat Weed is known as the king of natural aphrodisiacs is due to the fact it has two functions and the second function is the increase in delivery of free circulating testosterone hormones.
Testosterone is a major player in the male sexual biology equation and is almost entirely responsible for a man’s healthy level of sexual motivation or as more commonly stated ‘sex drive’. A reduction in testosterone delivery can occur for many reasons and although it occurs in men of any age, generally the most common reason is aging. When this happens men usually notice a severe loss of sexual appetite and also a loss in vigor for daily activities. Icariin from Horny Goat Weed has been proven to mimic the production of testosterone and what this has shown to do is to have the effective of actually increasing the the delivery of free-circulating testosterone which otherwise would remain idle and obsolete in the body.
Another benefit of health testosterone levels worth noting here is that testosterone contributes directly to the production of healthy sperm so I’m sure it is becoming clear as to just how crucial the sufficient delivery of testosterone actually is.
Which Horny Goat Weed Extracts Contain The Most Icariin & Yield The Most Benefits?
Now that we understand exactly how Horny Goat Weed works, we shall look at the varying standardized strengths available. Horny Goat Weed strength is measured by the overall percentage of icariin contained within the finished (extracted) powder. The strength range available for Horny Goat Weed extracts at present start at just 10% icariin purity, that being the lowest strength, then the purity usually increases in 10% increments i.e. 20% icariin, 30% icariin, 40% icariin, 50% icariin and lastly 60% icariin which is the purest standardized Horny Goat Weed extract available.
The difference in beneficial effectiveness between a 10% icariin extract and a 60% icariin extract reflects exactly to the increase in the figure, hence if you are a man who is in need of a major boost sex drive and/or you suffer from erectile dysfunction/impotence then it’s wise to take the high purity 60% icariin Horny Goat Weed supplements rather than the lower strengths.
