Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed)

Epimedium, also known as Rowdy Lamb Herb, Barrenwort, Bishop's Hat, Fairy Wings, Horny Goat Weed, or Yin Yang Huo, is a genus of about 60 or more species of herbaceous flowering plants in the family Berberidaceae.

Many species of Epimedium are alleged to have aphrodisiac qualities. It is sold as a health supplement, usually in raw herb, tablet, or capsule form and sometimes blended with other supplements. The "active ingredient" in Epimedium is icariin, which can be found in standardized extracts from 5% up to 60% potent.

Icariin is purported to work by increasing levels of nitric oxide, which relax smooth muscle. It has been demonstrated to relax rabbit penile tissue by nitric oxide and PDE-5 activity. Other research has demonstrated that injections of Epimedium extract directly into the penis of the rat results in an increase in penile blood pressure.

Like sildenafil (Viagra), icariin, the active compound in Epimedium, inhibits the activity of PDE-5. Epimedium has been shown to up-regulate genes associated with nitric oxide production and changes in adenosine/guanine monophosphate balance in ways that other PDE5 inhibitors do not.
