    There is also Macha root from the Peruvian highlands. It is supposed to have many many physical/mental benefits, including improved sexual function. A sustainable agricultural product for the world market? Sex sells….

    The local Asian supermarket here in Seattle has carried horny goat weed tea for as long as I can remember. Never verified it if works as intended though ;)

    I tried the truck stop horny goat weed pill once (no lie, they sell it in western Massachusetts) and fell asleep unaroused.

    Hey guys I hope this comment doesnt fall under the “spam” category but I struggled with ED for along time. When I started using Horny Goat Weed things finally started “looking up” for me.

    But the problem is I had a hard time finding a place online that didnt try to sell me fake viagara and a bunch of stuff I didnt want.

    Lately Ive been buying from http://www.getthegoat.com – they’re straight up, ship fast, and as far as I can tell theyre the real deal. Take from that what you will – it definitely worked for me.

    Happy Holidays!

    I’ve never tried Viagra so I can’t compare, but I have been taking HGW & MACA together with Ginkgo Biloba for a couple of months and the effect is most definitely noticeable. It definitely doesn’t have an ‘instant wood’ effect like Viagra is supposed to, but after taking for about a week, it definitely took less effort to get there and lasted much longer… YMMV.

    I think it’s hilarious that people are selling this stuff. Here in New Mexico (and other places I’m sure) it is an invasive pest. I’ve been trying for years to eradicate it from my yard, but it just keeps coming back. Maybe if it becomes really popular, people will over-harvest it from the ditch sides and arroyos around here.

    THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS!!!! BUY IT!!!

    Why is this news? Haven’t natural remedy stores been selling this for years already, alongside Maca root?

    They’ve sold it in mainstream supermarkets here for years, and even have a “Horny Goats Weed for Her” version as well :)

    Hey there I was a very active member of a enthnobotanical forum for quite a few years. “Horny Goat Weed” does indeed work.
    I’ve used it with my then girlfriend for those all night extended sessions we had.

    The person that really brought this to the western market is the owner of http://www.omchiherbs.com. oh about 10 years ago.
    He’s the one that dove into the old books and did the research.
    (There’s quite a few other interesting plant extracts he’s dug up over the years that are also well looking into).

    I’m not mentioning this because I used to chat with him. I’m mentioning this because his research and bringing this to the west should be rewarded.
    Here’s the specific page relating to the article. While not using the same scientific name for “horny goat weed” it is the “same thing” in active amounts.

    james david…
    not all those herbal supplments are the same.
    There’s lots of rip offs in the industry by quick buck con men that mix up stuff and sell it to cash in on the herbal buzz or the new thing.
    The above link is for a source I can recommend.

    Also, you’ll need a friend or something to aid you in “Activation”
    Affects aren’t only for standing at attention but also for additional flow and intensity… or at least in the pills I’ve used. ymmv.

    WOW! what a find.

    Chinese medicine only caught on to that one a few thousand years ago!

    Re: #6
    I like how they substituted “licentious” in the name of the herb.

    Funny name thats for sure but I must admit iam a bit of a horny goat weed fan, I now use the high strength 60% icariin horny goat weed and it has been an absolute gem for me in the bedroom quarters for quite a while now :)

  16. mcjake says:

    You know, I have to say I doubt this study just because of the fact that I had a friend who took “penis enlargement pills” that were Horny Goat Weed and Vitamin C in them and he never once mentioned the type of effect that viagra has.

    And trust me, this guy would have. And yes, he really was a friend not a “friend.”

    Horny Goat Weed has been a folk remedy for ED for who knows how many years. It never stopped being sold for that purpose when Viagra et al hit the market, but we’re just now getting around to actually testing it out? There have been many folk remedies through the years that have proven quite effective, so it’s not that huge a surprise that this one works too.
