What is Horny Goat Weed?

Also known as barrenwort, horny goat weed is known for its ability to stimulate sexual appetite. (It got its name from Chinese folklore, in which a shepherd noticed a spike in sexual activity in his herd of goats after they ate it.) In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it promotes balance to support the reproductive system and reduce menopause-related symptoms.*

What are the Benefits of Horny Goat Weed?

Horny goat weed is thought to ease typical PMS symptoms, improve energy, sharpen the memory, and stimulate blood flow to enhance arousal. Its influence on hormones stems from its high content of phytoestrogen, which can dictate everything from bone health to circulation.*

Horny Goat Weed Benefits: 

Horny Goat Weed in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Yin yang huo supplements the Kidneys, strengthens Yang and increases the libido. The Kidneys in TCM store reproductive energy. The Kidneys also “govern” the lower body, where they keep the lower body strong and regulate urination.

Epimedium leaves warm the Kidney Yang and stimulate sexual function to treat impotence, infertility, urinary frequency, forgetfulness, withdrawal, and painful, cold lower back and knees. This warming function also can help alleviate spasms, or cramps in the hands and feet, joint pain and numbness in the extremities, contractures, and numbness or hemiplegia following stroke.*
