What is Horny Goat Weed?

Also known as barrenwort and bishop’s hat (ha!) and nature’s Viagra, horny goat weed is a spring flowering evergreen with a long history of use in traditional Eastern medicine. According to legend, a goat herder noticed his flock became more amorous after eating the plant, hence its name. 

Horny Got Weed and ED

Horny goat weed is a time-tested libido enhancer, and its active ingredient is icariin – which helps prevent erectile dysfunction (ED). ED occurs when an enzyme interferes with the smooth muscle in the arteries and the body’s ability to maintain an erection. The icariin in horny goat weed helps to allow blood to fill the arteries and the three cylinders in the penis to maintain a firm erection, in much the same way as prescription medications like Viagra and Cialis.

It’s estimated that as many as half of New Zealand men over the age of 40 experience erectile problems or ED. Due to embarrassment, only around 5% of men ever end up seeking help. Natural supplements that don’t require a prescription offer a great alternative to men looking to increase their libido and erectile function naturally.
