Is Yin Yang Huo effective for erectile dysfunction?
Yin Yang Huo is an herb with the botanical name Epimedium sagittatum. It has a soft, green, colorful, heart-shaped leaf and is found in the wild in Asia (China and Japan) and Europe. Ying Yang Huo literally translates as Horny Goat Weed. Other names for this plant include barrenwort, rowdy lamb herb and Bishop’s hat.
Ying Yang Huo has been in use in traditional Chinese medicine for about 2,000 years. It got this name when a Chinese goat herder noticed that his goats became more sexually active after feeding on the Ying Yang Huo plants that were growing near the fields.
How Ying Yang Huo works
The main aphrodisiac components in Epimedium sagittatum are icariin and noricariin. These substances are 5-phosphodiesterase inhibitors. When these agents inhibit 5-phosphodiesterase, they cause vasodilation of the blood vessels (vascular lumens become wider), which increases penile blood flow and produces an erection.
Effectiveness of Ying Yang Huo for treating erectile dysfunction
In ancient Chinese books, the main functions of Ying Yang Huo focused on its ability to warm up the kidney and the reinforcement of ‘yang’, which lead to the recovery of male erectile function. As a natural remedy for erectile dysfunction, Ying Yang Huo has a history that goes back several centuries.
Scientific investigations into the anecdotal claims of efficacy led to some clinical trials in humans, which showed improvement rates of more than 90%.
Apart from its vasodilation effect, Studies have also shown that Ying Yang Huo may restore low levels of testosterone and thyroid hormone, which may well lead to higher energy levels. Ying Yang Huo also causes an increase in muscle mass and it is used as a treatment for fatigue and aging.
A study found that Ying Yang Huo improves erectile dysfunction and increases the expression of nitric oxide synthase (which promotes vasodilation and erection).
Another study stated that horny goat weed could theoretically work better -- and cause fewer side effects -- than current drugs for erectile dysfunction.
These scientific studies and the substantial traditional claim of effectiveness support the use of Ying Yang Huo for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
