Testimonial, experiences
An interesting side effect – I just returned from an 11 day cruise. I rarely take the elevator onboard, and daily activity is much more than I’m normally used to. Swimming, hiking ashore, plus all of those stairs. After a week or so, I’m pooped. My legs ached from all of this extra exercise. One evening I needed to stay awake for a couple of onboard shows, so I took a horny goat weed capsule (from Physician Formulas – about 500mg) more for it’s stimulating properties than for what it is advertised for. Much to my surprise the aches in my overworked muscles completely disappeared within less than an hour. It also kept me awake and alert for the needed time.

Q.  I have recently purchased a bottle of Horny Goat Weed extract from Physician Formulas and I am very happy with the product. I am looking for both a muira pauma extract as well as a catuaba extract but have found none that I trust enough to purchase. Physician formulas website offers muira pauma in 500 mg capsules but it does not state that it is an extract. Also, does arginine help in this combination?
A. Some herbs are better used as extracts, others as the full powder. In the case of catuaba and muira puama, feedback thus far reveals that the regular non extract powder is working well. We do not find the amino acids arginine or citrulline to be of significant benefit as ED amino acids.

What is the right dosage? How quickly does it work?
Each person responds differently, but, as a general rule, one option is to try a horny goat weed supplement extract of 200 mg in the morning two days on, one day off and then base your future dosage on your initial reaction. Future dosage could be higher or lower depending on how it makes you feel.

Q. Is there a load-up period before results can be noticed? I know that some herbs and supplements have a period of time that the product needs to be taken and be built up in the body before the desired results can be noticed.
A. Some people are sensitive and may notice an effect from horny goat weed within a day or two, for others it may take several days. Yes, most aphrodisiac herbs take several days for their full benefit to be apparent.

How quickly does it work?
I just started using Horny Goat Weed herb. I took one capsule yesterday and one today in the morning. I don’t feel anything yet. How long should i take this herb to be sure that it’s not effective? Should i increase the dosage after a while?

A. Single sex herbs take longer to work than some formula combinations. It may take a week or two. It is a good idea to take a day off after 2 days of use.


Use by a woman, it works in women, too
Q. I am taking 5 mg of Crestor daily for cholesterol lowering. Is it safe to mix it with horny goat weed with maca. Plus I am a woman. Will it work on females?

A. We can never promise that a supplement is safe when combined with medicines. Much depends on the dosage used. Always start with a low amount. It does work in women.

Studies and clinical trials
Our Chinese study investigated the therapeutic effect of epimedium sagittatum on 22 patients with chronic renal failure on hemodialysis. Twelve patients with hemodialysis were served as controls. Horny goat weed had a sex enhancing effect and improved their quality of life.

There is no reliable information that it works for weight loss, working out, or bodybuilding. It may have slight influence on depression but there are other more effective supplements for mood elevation such as St. John’s wort and 5-HTP.

Mechanism of action and how it works
The exact way that horny goat weed works remains unclear. Animal studies have shown that it may influence levels of neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine and reduce cortisol levels. The leaves contain a variety of flavonoids (one prominent flavonoid is icariin), sterols and an alkaloid called magnaflorine. It’s quite possible horny goat weed influences several aspects of human sexual biochemistry. Icariin is known to help with erectile function.

Horny goat weed side effects warning
Side effects from horny goat weed are likely with high dosage use. Horny goat weed herb has not been available long enough in western countries for us to have a good understanding of its potential side effects when misused. However, there is a possibility that very high doses  – just like many herbs that have a stimulating nature – can cause heart rhythm disturbances or increase heart rate. A more common adverse reaction is insomnia when this herb is used in high doses.

Combining with other aphrodisiac products
When used in low dosages, such as a small portion of capsule, horny goat weed can be combined with maca, tongkat ali, and other sex herbs.

I have been taking horny goat weed and maca and I can certainly feel the effects of a more firmer and for a better word alive penis. also my urination is more powerful, but I believe that this has caused my blood pressure to be up a bit, not terribly high. My doctor has recommended some medication for my blood pressure. If I use Passion Rx would that create a problem? Also, I am 64 yrs old but in really good health other wise, I exercise a lot, I live on an extremely healthy diet and not overweight. My issue is that I am planning to get married to some one who is 40 , we will be meeting in about a month from now; can I use Passion x at this time to condition my self? or is there some thing else that you would recommend and then use the Passion Rx closer to the time I will have intercourse.
A. It takes a few days of using Passion Rx 2 days on, 1 day off, to get the maximal benefits. We don’t suggest using Passion Rx the same days as horny goat weed or maca. Passion Rx, may, in some people, raise blood pressure slightly.

I read that tongkat ali root comes from a tree in Southeast Asia, Malaysia or Indonesia. I think it is also found in Thailand. Sure enough by the evening of the second day there was a general enhancement of arousal and the next morning better erections. I did not take any on day three and still had the arousal, and it persisted on day four but not as much. Cycling it is a good idea from my experience. I did not feel horny goat weed herb with icariin worked as well as this product
Note: Some people like tongkat ali, others find horny goat weed works better for them.

Composition and substances in the plant
Horny goat weed herb has a number of substances including prenylated flavonol glycosides, ikarisoside A, icarisid II, epimedoside A, icariin, epimedin B, yinyanghuo A – E, and epimedokoreanoside. Flavonoids include chrysoeriol, quercetin, apigenin, kaempferol, and luteolin.

Combining with ED drugs or medications
Can horny goat weed extract be taken with Cialis at the same time, i have read up on horny goat weed herb and am contemplating on trying it out but am afraid of bad side effects happening. Does it also increase male fertility? I’m a smoker so i suppose that’s no help.

We prefer horny goat weed and other sexual improving herbs not be taken the same day as Cialis or other erectile dysfunction herbs. Often it takes a few days for aphrodisiac herbs to have their full benefits. Therefore, horny goat weed herb can be taken three or four days, and then Cialis, Viagra, or Levitra can be taken on the day of activity but the horny goat weed can be skipped the day the drugs are taken. Each person is different in their response and hence have approval by your doctor. As to fertility, see fertilityinformation.

Can a person take horny goat weed supplement while using the nitro patch?
Many of the sexual herbs increase heart rate and very high dosages could lead to heart rhythm problems. If a person is on a nitro patch that means they have heart problems, therefore horny goat weed supplements are not recommended.

Epimedium 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.

Drug interactions
Mucuna Pruriens and the ingredient in Horny Goat weed “Epimedium Leaf Extract” are said to have issue with any one taking anticoagulants, blood thinners etc. I take an 80mg aspirin daily and have very thick blood. I am starting a regime of taking a different supplement a day for 7 days and repeating. The two mentioned are in the list. If it is only once a week spread apart could I just ½ the usual dosage and probably maybe get away with it. I do not know if the disclaimer means it thins out the blood or thickens the blood. If it has the possibility of thinning out the blood I am fine with that. It is the thickening that worries me. Can you tell me what they mean when they mean when they mention the supplement could possibly have issues with blood thinners? It makes it thinner or thicker?

Most of the time it means the herbs thin the blood thus potentially reducing the needed or required dose of aspirin or other blood thinners.

Horny goat weed is an herb found in Asia. The Chinese call it Yin Yang Huo, which loosely means “licentious goat plant.” Legend has it that the name horny goat weed came from a herder who noticed his goats becoming more sexually active after eating the plant. Although horny goat weed has a history of traditional use for disorders of the kidneys, joints, and liver, its principle use in the western world is as an aphrodisiac and to combat fatigue.
