China is the geographical distribution center of Epimedium. There are 40 Epimedium varieties. At present, there are 15 kinds of main types of medicinal materials. Among them, 7 Epimedium species are the most widely used, which is Epimedium sagittatum E. sagittatum(Sieb.etZucc.)Maxim., Epimedium E.brevicornumMaxim., Coarse Epimedium E.acuminatumFranch., Korean Epimedium E.koreanumNakai, Epimedium pubescens E.pubescensMaxim., Epimedium Qianling E.leptorrhizumStearn, E.wushanenseT.S.Ying.

Epimedium Powder Benefits:
1. Considered a Natural Aphrodisiac
Epimedium Powder may be able to help normalize cortisol levels and reduce some of the negative effects of stress on the body, which can include lowered sex drive, mental fatigue and various problems with hormonal balance or sexual performance. By helping to normalize testosterone and estrogen levels, it may be useful for combatting symptoms like low energy, involuntary ejaculation and vaginal dryness.
Icariin is also a vasodilator, helping to increase blood flow, and has some anti-inflammatory abilities. Another effect that research suggests icariin may have is inhibiting an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase (AChE), which has effects on neurotransmitter synapses and various neuromuscular functions. Use of icariin has been associated with positive changes in body composition — such as increased muscle mass, strength and bone growth — which can enhance performance, energy and even confidence.
2. May Help Treat Erectile Dysfunction
As mentioned above, one suspected mechanism of action of epimedium sagittatum powder when it comes to treating ED is helping to increase circulation in blood vessels connecting the penis — thus, operating as an erectogenic and improving erectile function.
After sexual stimulation, nitric oxide (NO) is released in order to dilate the blood vessels of the corpus cavernosum (tissue that forms the penis) in order to produce an erection. While this is happening a compound called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) accumulates, which can be broken down by the substance PDE5. Because icariin has the ability to stop PDE5 from doing this, it boosts nitric oxide’s effects even more, helping to sustain an erection.
3. May Increase Testosterone Levels
Icariin has been shown to have natural testosterone-mimicking properties, one reason it helps to improve sexual desire, strength and even athletic performance. In one study involving rats that were given icariin extract, researchers found that icariin improved the overall condition of reproductive organs and increased the circulating levels of testosterone compared to the rats that were not given the extract. (10) More studies are needed to see if it will prove to be a testosterone booster for humans.
4. Can Help Balance Hormones During or After Menopause
In TCM, Yin Yang Huo is considered to help promote “yin” energy, restoring energy levels and balance. With it’s “spicy, sweet and warm” properties, it’s helpful for people who are feeling fatigued or “yin deficient,” especially those going through hormonal changes such as menopause.
Because prenylflavonoids act as phytoestrogens, they have been shown in some studies to help increase estrogen levels and reduce symptoms of menopause in females. Thus, horny goat weed can be considered an estrogenic which contains many different prenylflavonoid compounds that have been associated with decreased symptoms of menopause, such as low libido and bone loss, with the strongest being icariin.
5. Can Help Increase Muscle Strength
In some studies epimedium sagittatum powder has had positive effects on lean muscle production. Research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine states “ICA (icariin) may have neurotrophic effects in addition to known phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibiting effects.” (Neurotrophins are types of proteins that help with development, growth and function of neurons. It’s suspected that icariin helps the body secrete proteins that allow cells to grow and contribute to tissue repair.
It’s not uncommon for those looking to “bulk up” and put on muscle mass, such as athletes and body builders, to use icariin as an active ingredient in supplements. Its use has also been linked with improved recovery following exercise and better athletic performance. Although it isn’t considered to be a stimulant and doesn’t work the same way that something like caffeine does, some find that taking supplements containing icariin can help improve their strength, stamina and endurance.
6. May Help Improve Bone Health
Research done by the Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology at the University of Tokyo found evidence that Epimedium Powder has positive effects on restoring bone density and therefore may help prevent symptoms related to osteoporosis, such as fractures or decreased bone density of the spine. Findings from animal studies done at the university showed that “icariin is a strong candidate for an osteogenic compound for use in bone tissue engineering.” The researchers observed significant new bone formation in rats treated with icariin after four weeks, and further increases in bone thickness after six weeks.
