Today, in this blog post, I would like to discuss one of my best-selling male fertility herbs known as Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium). Despite its amusing name, it is worth noting that the name originated from a goat herder who observed that his goats became more sexually active after consuming the herb. Clinical studies have also demonstrated similar effects in humans. At Reprovive, I primarily utilize this herb for the treatment of libido issues, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, frequent urination, and infertility. Additionally, it plays a significant role in enhancing cardiovascular health, kidney and liver function, joint health, and addressing back disorders.
One common cause of conditions such as erectile dysfunction is inadequate blood flow to the reproductive organs. However, Horny Goat Weed works by increasing blood flow to these organs, thereby enhancing arousal.
The primary active component in Horny Goat Weed is a flavonoid called Icariin. Icariin functions by inhibiting the activity of PDE5 (Phosphodiesterase type 5), which prevents the dilation of arteries in the penis. Consequently, blood can fill the arteries and the three cylinders in the penis, leading to an erection.
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine investigated the effects of Horny Goat Weed on rats and found that it increased testosterone levels. Testosterone is responsible for stimulating sperm production and influencing sex drive in men. Moreover, the green leaves of Horny Goat Weed can be brewed into a tea and are known to possess muscle-enhancing properties due to the presence of testosterone.
Horny Goat Weed is associated with minimal side effects and can serve as a natural alternative to Viagra. It is commonly found in fertility blends, including teas and supplements, targeted towards men. It is important to note that when purchasing Horny Goat Weed supplements, it is advisable to ensure that they contain a minimum of 10% icariin. In supplement form, a recommended daily dosage ranges from 250mg to 500mg.
Additionally, it is best to speak to a qualified health practitioner before using Horny Goat Weed and other fertility supplements, as there could be potential interactions with other medications.
Overall, Horny Goat Weed can be an effective herb for treating male fertility issues. Therefore, it is worth considering if you are looking for an all-natural solution to enhancing fertility.
