horny goat weed manufacturing-1.jpg

Horny Goat Weed or barrenwort was first discovered by Chinese goat herders hundreds of years ago. These humble goat minders observed that their animals would eat the Horny Goat Weed before mating. They noted that the animals would become very generally energetic, playful, and express an increased interest in running, mating, and play. Since then, the herb has been used by supplement brands all over the world as an aphrodisiac, a health supplement, and an energy enhancer. 

The herb is generally considered safe for anyone except those with a particular allergy to this and similar flora. For anyone with a heart condition, it is advised that a physician is consulted before using horny goat weed as it is known to elevate heart rate over extended periods of time.

Horny goat weed is a naturally occurring herb used to make medicine. There exist as many as fifteen species of horny goat weed which are known in Chinese medicine as “yin yang huo.”

Horny goat weed is used to treat a number of conditions including;

  • Weak back and knees
  • Joint pain & osteoarthritis

How Horny Goat Weed Works

The weed contains chemicals which are believed to help improve blood flow and boost sexual function.

It contains phytoestrogens, chemicals which act like the female hormone estrogen, that may reduce bone loss in women after menopause.

Cultivation of Horny Goat Weed

Varieties of Epimedium have been cultivated in the west for over 100 years. There is a wide range of Chinese species being newly cultivated, many of which have only been recently discovered.

There are many older Japanese forms. Few plants have seen such a dramatic rise in new species which in this case is due to the work of dedicated herbalists and scientists in Japan and the United States.

Most Chinese species of Epimedium are not well tested.

The early assumption that the plant would thrive only in native conditions has proven overly cautious. Most varieties are extraordinarily amenable to general cultivation.

How Horny Goat Weed Supplements are Made

As a naturally occurring dietary supplemental herb, very little needs to be done in order to deliver the effects of this popular plant.

However, in order to offer it to all of the many different types of supplement consumers and market demographics, a number of different processing and delivery methods have been developed.

Also, because the herb, in its natural state, will have a very limited shelf life- the demands of international commerce require it to be processed in various ways.

For the production of pills and powders, the herb must be dried and commingled with preservatives.

The quality of horny goat weed supplements depends primarily on three factors;

  • Purity of the essential herb
  • Quality of the essential compounds
  • The nature and ratio of the preservatives used

A Plethora of Horny Goat Weed Variants

Supplement brands may select among a wide range of attributes based on those three quality determinative factors alone.

As a brand,  you have a broad range of options open to you depending on what kind of goat weed product that you would like to produce. There are a lot of herbs that are known to produce valuable health effects such as immune support, blood vessel dilation and so on.

But few offer these positive effects while also boosting energy, sexual function, and improving attention. In our modern industrial and fast paced society, these attributes are highly prized in a supplement.

For this reason, horny goat weed has found its way into many popular fitness and nutritional products. Some of these are;

  • Energy boosters
  • Pre-Workout shakes
  • Asthma treatments
  • Bronchial dilators
  • Aphrodisiacs
  • Focus enhancers
  • and more
