Epimedium plant is also known as barrenwort, fairy wings or the more common ‘horny goat weed’ because of its proven aphrodisiac properties. The Epimedium plant is said to contain certain chemical compounds, otherwise known as flavonoids that has antioxidant properties, in addition to having phytoestrogens which have effects similar to the estrogen. This phytoestrogen, known as epimedium icariins is said to block the activity of a certain enzyme in the body, somewhat similar to the drugs that treat erectile dysfunction.
Basically, icariins helps in the efficient transmission of an important cellular signaling molecule, Nitrous Oxide, which in turn increases the free form testosterone hormones. For somebody who wants to take icariin orally, it is important to understand that icariins dosage will depend on the strength of the icariin that is usually represented by the percentage of the actual flavonol present in the epimedium supplement.
