|Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium) Full Spectrum Herbal Supplement|
Chinese Tonic for Sexual Vitality, Original and Professional Strength
Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed) is one of the most valued tonics of Chinese herbalism.
In China it is especially used for supporting healthy sexual activity-thus its
name, Horny Goat Weed. Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Horny Goat Weed combines
epimedium extract (standardized to 10% flavonoids as icariin) with whole leaf
epimedium, to insure a full spectrum of important constituents.
Epimedium Traditional Use
Epimedium is one of the most valued tonics of Chinese herbalism. Its first recorded
use dates back to the ancient text, Shen Non Ben Cao Jing (ca. 200 B.C.-100 A.D.)
Epimedium was viewed as a kidney/ adrenal tonic, used for male endocrine function,
erectile function and enhancement of libido in men and women. Epimedium was said
to "tonify life's gate" - a term used to refer to the vital energy responsible
for male sexual capability - as well as to strengthen tendons and bones. Epimedium
received its colloquial name, horny goat weed, when goats grazing on the herb
were observed to increase their sexual activity.
Horny Goat Weed Scientific Research
Preliminary animal studies suggest that part of epimedium's effects may be due
to its ability to stimulate endocrine secretions of a type of androgen. Androgens
are substances, such as androsterone and testosterone, that stimulate male characteristics.
Epimedium has also been shown in a pharmacologic study of 104 individuals to enhance
sexual vitality in a majority of the subjects.
The Full Spectrum Difference
Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Horny Goat Weed combines a standardized extract
of Epimedium sagittatum with whole leaf epimedium. It is standardized to 10% flavonoids
as icariin. The stem and leaf of epimedium also contain des-O-methlicariin, B-anhydroicaritin
and magnoflorine. Combining standardized epimedium extract with whole leaf maintains
the integrity of the botanical while providing a concentrated source of its valuable
constituents, according to modern scientific investigation.
