Background

Horny Goat Weed is a species of flowering plant in the family Berberidaceae, native to China, Japan and Korea. According to legend, a Chinese farmer saw his goats that had been feeding on the plant becoming quite frisky and wondered why…so the story goes!

Uses

Horny goat weed has been used for sexual performance problems including erectile dysfunction and involuntary ejaculation in men and as an aphrodisiac. It is seen as a useful hormonal balancer, thus could be useful in the treatment of menopausal symptoms although there are no scientific studies to support this. Horny goat weed is also used for weak back and knees, joint pain, osteoarthritis, mental and physical fatigue, memory loss, high blood pressure, heart disease, bronchitis, liver disease, HIV/AIDS, polio, a blood disorder called chronic leucopenia, viral infections of the heart, bone loss after menopause, weak bones (osteoporosis), and as a tonic.

Precautions

Do not take if you are pregnant, breast feeding, on blood clotting medication or have an oestrogen sensitive disorder. Cease taking two weeks before surgery. Care should be taken if you have low blood pressure (hypotension), as Horny Goat Weed might cause fainting. It is possible to have an allergic reaction that can cause nosebleed, thirst and vomiting. Discontinue immediately if you experience any of these reactions.
