Horny Goat Weed may not sound serious, but in reality, it could provide a serious boost to those who need it.

Horny Goat Weed is a traditional botanical used in China and Japan. This herb (which also goes by the names Yin Yang Huo, Inyokaku, and Herba Epimedii) has a history of traditional use for joints, liver, back and knees. According to one herbal author, Horny Goat Weed has testosterone-like effects. It supports healthy sexual activity in both men and women.

Mechanisms Of Action

Research has shown that Horny Goat Weed significantly increases testosterone in mice. This certainly appears to be the herb’s mechanism of action.

However, an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inactivates cholinergic neurotransmitters within 1/500 of a second. As it turns out, research shows that Horny Goat Weed is capable of inhibiting AChE.

In addition, research has shown that Horny Goat Weed has anti-fatigue effects and helps prevents adrenal exhaustion.
