Icariin molecular structure:
Icariin increased cardiovascular and cerebrovascular blood flow, promote hematopoietic function, immune function, and bone metabolism, kidney impotence, anti-aging, anti-tumor efficacy.
1) Endocrine role:
Icariin promotes sexual function is the hypersecretion of semen, seminal vesicle full stimulation of sensory nerves, indirect excited libido.
2) Impact on the function of the immune system:
kidney patients the number of T cells, lymphocyte transformation rate, antibodies, antigens, and reticuloendothelial system phagocytic dysfunction after Epimedium kidney drug treatment can improve.
3) Anti-aging effects:
icariin affect aging mechanisms from different aspects. As affect cell passaging, to extend the growing season, the regulation of the immune and secretion system, improve metabolism and organ function.
4) The role of the cardiovascular system:
Icariin of pituitrin rat cardiac ischemia has a protective effect, with significant antihypertensive effect.
3. Icariin for Promoting Male Sex Performance
The first major sexual health benefit of Iariin is that it can increase Nitric Oxide production. A boost in Nitric Oxide is vitally important for healthy male erectile function because Nitric Oxide acts as a chemical transmitter to instruct the successful and plentiful delivery of blood to the penis tissue, hence if Nitric Oxide production becomes somewhat impaired then a male will experience a decrease of blood delivery to the penis which will lead to either a partially erection or a completely non-erect penis, even when sexually stimulated.
Iariin has the powerful function to rejuvenate the transmission of Nitric Oxide signalling when taken over an adequate space of time and this rejuvenation results in greatly promoted circulation within the body especially to the penis tissues.
Promoting the levels of free-circulating testosterone around the body improving overall testosterone delivery is the next benefit of consuming Horny Goat Weed extract containing various percentage of Iariin. Testosterone has long been regarded to be the primary male sex hormone contributing to the male sexual stimulation because testosterone hormones are critically responsible for such health aspects as Most importantly, such beneficial effects of icariin are prominent in men of all ages no matter you are at age of 20 or 60.
4. Scientific Support
Animal studies have shown that epimedium may function a bit like an adaptogen (such as cordyceps, rhodiola, ashwagandha, and ginseng) by increasing levels of epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine when they are low (an energy-promoting effect), but reducing cortisol levels when they are elevated (an anti-stress effect).
There is also evidence that epimedium can restore low levels of both testosterone and thyroid hormone (bringing low levels back to their normal levels) – which may account for some of the benefits of epimedium in improving libido (sex drive). Animal studies using epimedium have shown a reduction in bone breakdown, an increase in muscle mass, and a loss of body fat-each of which may be linked to the observed return of abnormal cortisol levels back to normal values (and rhythm).
In a series of studies conducted in humans and animals by Chinese researchers, immune-system function was directly suppressed and bone loss was accelerated, by using high-dose synthetic cortisol (glucocorticoid drugs). Subsequent administration of epimedium extract reduced blood levels of cortisol and improved immune immune-system function (in the humans) and slowed bone loss and strengthen.
