Horny goat weed – For increasing your sex drive and your lust for life

240px-Epimedium_grandiflorum_leafThe hilarious name of this herb comes from the fact that goat herders noticed that just before mating season, goats would eat large amounts of these leaves.  They’d then get very frisky and lustful, hence the name of the herb.

Research indicates that horny goat weed does have hormonal balancing and hormone-improving qualities which may be what makes it potentially so powerful as an aphrodisiac.  I have personally found this to be the case though it does depend on what else is going on for you.  It’s not necessarily going to make you crazy with lust, but it will bring things back into balance for you and give you the level of sex drive that is right for you, assuming any other factors are resolved.

Horny goat weed is an excellent immune-supporting herb.

The interesting thing about all of the yang jing herbs like this one, is you get excellent results if you vary them.  If one day you have horny goat weed, the next you have cistanch, then the next you have tribulus, then eucommia and so on, this has the effect of keeping your hormonal system in a state of constant improvement.

Increased sex hormones doesn’t just improve your sex drive but for many other things such as good memory and good bone formation, and improved function of the brain and nervous system.  Increasing your sex hormones has knock on beneficial effects in many areas of your life.

Horny goat weed is the herb for you if you feel a lack of lust, not just for your partner but a lack of lust for life.  If you never seem to feel motivated to go to the gym, or do your yoga or weight training, or whatever you promised yourself you’d do, then I really recommend horny goat weed.

This herb does have quite a strong and bitter flavour.  It can help if you use a bit of a liquid sweetener like stevia extract.  Give it a try, especially before you go to the gym.
