Icariin

The plant family Epimedium, more commonly known as Horny Goat Weed, has been known in China for centuries for promoting an overall sense of well-being.*

Modern scientific research has isolated one compound as a key component to these interesting effects: icariin.

What is Horny Goat Weed?

What is Icariin 20%?

Icariin is the active ingredient in Horny Goat Weed. Our Horny Goat Weed is standardized for 20% Icariin, which allows for accurate and confident dosing of this supplement.

Customers should be wary of vendors without standardized extracts, as there is no knowing how much of the active ingrdient (icariin) their product contains.

Horny Goat Weed is an herb known for its active ingrediient, icariin. Icariin is a flavanol glycoside extract from the Epimedium plant family. [1]

Icarrin vs. Icarrins

There are many different variations of Horny Goat Weed on the market, all touting different varieties and percentages. One difference you might notice between Horny Goat Weed varieties, is the reference to “icarrin” or “icarrins.”

While it may just seem like a typo, it reflects the quality of the product. Icarrin refers specifically to the amount of active flavonols found in the extract, while icarrins indicates a compound of Epimedium plant parts.

This icarrins compound could have an unknown amount of active flavanols, possibly rendering the product useless. When you purchase Horny Goat Weed standardized for icarrin, you can be sure of the active flavanol content.

Horny Goat Weed Benefits

Icariin and Bodybuilding

Icariin extract promotes cardiovascular health throughout the body. [3] Supplements which promote healthy circulation, are coveted in the bodybuilding community, lending their properties to maximize the sought after pump.*

Additional Benefits of Icariins

But Icariin has many other health benefits. It has shown efficacy in supplementing cardiovascular, bone, and cognitive health. [1] Icariin and its derivatives also promote cellular health in the body.* [1]

Horny Goat Weed Dosage

Unstandardized Horny Goat Weed supplements often require you to take a large amount to feel effects; however, ours contains a potent Icariin extract, thus users do not need as much. Our Horny Goat Weed is standardized to 20% icarrin, so 350mg once daily is the suggested starting dosage. Start low and work up to a perfect dose.

Curated Reviews

“This is a great HGW extract. Definitely extremely effective. Icariin is my favorite pre-workout. Nothing I've tried provides better pumps than PDE5 inhibitors. You can feel more blood flow in all your muscles before you even start lifting. I would recommend taking it AFTER any heavy squatting, or keeping the dose low, because I do feel increased pressure in my head, eyes, and ears with heavy squatting on this stuff.” - Mitch
