News is spreading in the United States about horny goat weed, also known as epimedium, a botanical used for centuries in Chinese traditional herbalism to support healthy sexual activity. 

Planetary Herbals Full Spectrum™ Horny Goat Weed is available in double-strength 1,200 mg potency. This product combines epimedium extract standardized for the beneficial constituent, icariin, with whole leaf - for a full spectrum of epimedium's benefits.

A History of Traditional Use:

Epimedium is one of the most valued tonics of Chinese herbalism. Its first recorded use dates back to the ancient text, Shen Non Ben Cao Jing (ca. 200 B.C.-100 A.D.) It was viewed as a kidney / adrenal tonic, used for male endocrine function, erectile function and enhancement of libido in men and women. Epimedium was said to "tonify life's gate" - a term used to refer to the vital energy responsible for male sexual capability - as well as to strengthen tendons and bones.

Epimedium received its colloquial name, horny goat weed, when goats grazing on the herb were observed to increase their sexual activity.

Scientific Research:

Preliminary animal studies suggest that part of epimedium's effects may be due to its ability to stimulate endocrine secretions of a type of androgen. Androgens are substances, such as androsterone and testosterone that stimulate male characteristics.

The Full Spectrum Difference:

Planetary Herbals Full Spectrum™ Horny Goat Weed combines a standardized extract of Epimedium sagittatum with whole leaf epimedium. It is standardized to 10% flavonoids as icariin. The stem and leaf of epimedium also contain des-O-methlicariin, ß-anhydroicaritin and magnoflorine. Combining standardized epimedium extract with whole leaf maintains the integrity of the botanical while providing a concentrated source of its valuable constituents, according to modern scientific investigation.
