A great deal of research has been done in recent years concerning human performance and libido drive. Some of that research have focused on natural, botanical ingredients which have legendary history as natural aphrodisiacs, and Horny Goat Weed is among the top performers.
Horny Goat Weed is a low growing, deciduous perennial with leathery leaves (up to 1 foot long) spreading by underground stems. The flowers of this plant are 1 to 2 inches wide, resemble a bishop's hat (pendant-shaped), have long spurs, and come in various colors (purple, pink, yellow or white). The leaves of the plant contain a variety of flavonoids, polysaccharides, sterols and an alkaloid called magnaflorine.
Many cultures have reported that Horny Goat Weed supports libido levels, healthy performance, and support from menopausal discomfort. While the scientific community has focused mainly on men for healthy performance, women's performance and loss of sex drive (among both sexes) are also hot issues today. In recent studies, a daily dose of Horny Goat Weed extract has shown significant results as a performance enhancer for both men and women - boosting energy and stamina.
Horny Goat Weed lowers blood pressure by dilating capillaries and blood vessels while slowing the adrenal production that can hinder blood flow to the sex organs. Men achieve better erections due to this effect and it is thought that women benefit from the increased blood flow as well, and perhaps from other alkaloids and sterols within the plant. Research has also shown that Horny Goat Weed significantly increases energy in mice.
Horny Goat Weed is a traditional Chinese herb of long-standing use by those in the health care profession, where it can be used to help support liver, joint, knee, and back problems. The Chinese Academy of Sciences recommends the regular use of Horny Goat Weed to slow the aging process, as it improves the overall quality of life as well.
