Horny Goat Weed Supplement Information

People use a supplement called horny goat weed (Epimedium) for a variety of different reasons, although it is most commonly used to enhance sexual function. The supplement contains plant compounds that may have antioxidant activity and estrogen-like compounds, one of which is a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor, much like Viagra® (sildenafil) and other similar prescription impotence medications.
 
Information about horny goat weed should be carefully reviewed before you begin treatment to help ensure your safety. For example, even though it is a "natural" product, the herbal supplement can cause side effects, some of which include vomiting, dizziness, and dry mouth. Although the product is claimed to be effective, there is actually little scientific evidence confirming this.
