Epimedium is a botanical used for centuries in Chinese traditional herbalism to support healthy sexual activity. The product combines epimedium extract standardized for the beneficial constituent, icariin, with whole leaf for a full spectrum of epimedium’s benefits.
Preliminary animal studies suggest that part of epimedium’s effects may be due to its ability to stimulate endocrine secretions of a type of androgen. Androgens are substances, such as androsterone and testosterone that stimulate male characteristics. Epimedium has also been shown in a pharmacologic study of 104 individuals to enhance sexual vitality in a majority of the subjects.
