Icariin Benefits and Uses

 

Icariin, or Horny Goat Weed extract, is a natural flavonoid occurring in plants of the Epimedium genus, best known for supporting sexual vitality and a healthy libido.

 

The scientific name for Horny Goat Weed is Epimedium, but it can also be referred to as Barrenwort, Bishop’s Hat, fairy wings, or Yin Yang Huo. Most Horny Goat Weed supplements contain extracts from the Epimedium grandiflorum species.
