Horny Goat Weed- A Herbal Plant That Would Make You Horny?


There is a piece of history behind this herbal plant. Horny Goat Weed is used in traditional Chinese medicine, and is native to China. Hundreds of years ago, a goat herder noticed incessant sexual behavior in his goats. He observed the goats and noticed whenever they ate certain weeds, the goats promiscuous behavior became even more noticeable - hence, Horny Goat Weed.

Horny Goat Weed
is also called Ying Yang Huo in Chinese, and has been used to treat kidney, joint, liver, and back disorders, and it's also used as an aphrodisiac. Horny goat has testosterone
like effects, stimulating sexual activity, desire, increases sperm production, and stimulates sensory nerves.

How Does Horny Goat Weed Work?
Horny Goat Weed has been used as an aphrodisiac for hundreds of years, and research has also proven its effects on improving sexual desire and performance. So how does Horny Goat Weed work? Research has shown that Horny
Goat Weed can inhibit an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase (AChE). AChE rapidly stops neurotransmission at cholinergic synapses like those found in the brain and at neuromuscular
junctions, which are needed for speedy responses in the neuromuscular system. By inhibiting AChE, Horny Goat Weed supports higher levels of the key cholinergic neurotransmitters
associated with sexual arousal.

Horny Goat Weed Research
There has been much research done on Horny Goat Weed , and its aphrodisiac effects have been well demonstrated in animals and humans.

In a study done by Steven Lamm, M.D, 38 men were administered 2 capsules (2 X 800mg) of herbal complex of epimedium grandiflorum, maca pure (lepidium meyenii), mucuna pruriens, and polypodium vulgare (in short, Horny Goat Weed) for 45 days: 25 were healthy men and 13 were men already taking Viagra. Another 4 capsules of Horny Goat Weed were taken 1 to 2 hours prior to sexual activities. The study found 13 of 20 healthy men responded positively to Horny Goat Weed, and 6 of the 13 men already on Viagra also had a positive effect from using Horny Goat Weed. In most cases, the men reported overall improvement in sexual satisfaction and increase in sexual desires.
