Horny Goat Weed is a herb (Epimedium, Herba Epimdii, Icariin, Yinyanghuo, Fairy Wings, Rowdy Lamb Herb) that is known for being an aphrodisiac and touted as a men's sexual organs booster.

Botanical Source

 Epimedium is a plant that comes from the botanical family ‘Berberidaceae’. 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. Basically, icariin helps in the efficient transmission of an important cellular signaling molecule, Nitrous Oxide, which in turn increases the free form hormones.

Main ingredient

 Icariin, the Active ingredient of Epimedium Extract, is known as a 'prenylated diglycoside of kaempferol'. Specifically, the basic structure has a prenyl- group attached to the kaempferol molecule (depicted below, its the bendy tail heading upwards from the hexagon) and has two sugar molecules attached to it; a glucose molecule at R2 and a rhamnose molecule at R1. The other three popular molecules found in Horny Goat Weed, Epimedin A-C, have the same following backbone but just different sugars at R1 and R2.
