Main Uses:

 

  • Believed to be beneficial for the male and female libido.
  • As an aphrodisiac, Epimedium stimulates the production of androgenic or sex hormones while increasing nitric oxide levels in the body helping to relax smooth muscles thereby allowing more blood to flow through them. As from the sexual benefit that this process offers, it may also help to enhance athletic performance by reducing muscle fatigue.
  • There are studies which suggest that Epimedium increases testosterone production. This can be of great benefit to those trying to achieve a higher level of fitness because testosterone increases endurance and supports the development of lean muscle. Icariin is the active ingredient in Epimedium extract. It has been proven to relax muscles by increasing levels of nitric oxide.
  • Perhaps the most important health benefit Epimedium offers dieters is its ability to work as an adaptogen, helping the body to better respond to stress. In more practical terms, the herb can help protect the muscles from the stress and damage of overtraining.
