4. Epimedium Grandiflorum Extract – “Horny Goat Weed”
For thousands of years, horny goat weed has been used in China as a medicinal herb in reproductive tonics for boosting libido and treating impotence.
Horny goat weed works as an adaptogen by increasing levels of epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine when they are low-promoting energy-but reduces cortisol levels when they are elevated (an anti-stress effect). High stress conditions and increased cortisol levels cause fatigue and tiredness and this leads to loss of libido. Horny goat weed also works to restore of low levels of testosterone and the thyroid hormone to normal, improving sex drive.
Horny goat weed also contains a variety of flavonoids. One prominent flavonoid is icariin, which is a cGMP-specific PDE5 inhibitor like synthetic drugs but does it naturally.
