Recent Studies on Horny Goats Weed

Mario Dell'Agli, Ph.D in 2008, in the Journal of Natural Products discovered that the horny goats weed compound had the potential to treat erectile dysfunction. Dell'Agli found Icariin, the active ingredient of horny goats weed, inhibited PDE5A1 (an enzyme which regulates blood supply to the penis. Inhibition of this enzyme results in more blood flow to the penis) to a greater degree than the other compounds tested. 'This could be the natural Viagra,' said Mr Dell'Agli. 'We have synthesised a new molecule that one day may be able to replace Viagra.'

Alongside this, a study performed by M.N. Markova and published in the Dec. 3, 2007, edition of "Journal of Ethnopharmacology" determined that oral administration of horny goats weed was significantly effective in treating overall erectile function.
