Epimedium Leaf Extract
A natural herb native to China, other parts of Asia and the Mediterranean, epimedium leaf is truly one of a kind. Most commonly known as horny goat weed, epimedium is an herb that is present in most male enhancement supplements (VigRX Plus, including).
Epimedium contains a component known as icariin which as a natural chemical used for erectile dysfunction. The component works by boosting the levels of nitric oxide in the body thus relaxing the blood vessels which causes better circulation— poor circulation being one of the top causes for erectile dysfunction and other sexual issues. What many people don’t know is that poor circulation is also to blame for many diseases such as vertigo and high blood pressure.
The plant can generally grow no matter what time of the year it is but are generally harvested during the summer to ensure that the flowers grow back rapidly. The plant itself isn’t the only thing that grows back quickly. Some studies have shown that when patients with osteoporosis were given epimedium leaf they had an increased number of osteoblasts.
What epimedium leaf is most famous for is its ability to stimulate a strong sexual appetite. Like it’s commonly used name, ‘horny goat weed’ denotes, this herb was actually eaten by goats in China circa 200 C.E. when a goat farmer noticed his goats had an almost insatiable sexual appetite after grazing the herb. This, of course, is just a legend but I think you get the idea.
