I’ve used Horny Goat Weed as a sex hack for years now, I’ve tried several libido-enhancing herbs and supplements and Horny Goat Weed is the best.
I have the best sex of my life one this stuff. It’s a sensation enhancer, it makes you hornier and it improves your erections. You might be concerned that you’ll orgasm after like 3 minutes if you take something that makes you hornier and more sensitive, perhaps it works that way for some men but in combination with tantric breathing techniques and doing Kegels, I’m able to maintain control and stave off orgasm long enough to bring Mrs. Roseland to orgasm.
Booze can be a bit of sex hack if you get the dosage just right — there’s a sweet spot of just enough alcohol to keep you from ejaculating prematurely while too much alcohol will give you whiskey dick, as most men have shamefully experienced. If you’re going to do a little drinking before an adult horizontal session a teaspoon of Epimedium will keep your dick rock hard. It’s an effective whiskey dick countermeasure!
An herbal biohack for sexual performance enhancement by naturally supporting testosterone.
Herbal Nootropics are a much more acute and enjoyable experience when taken as a tea. Taken in capsule form or just washed down with a glass of water you get less of an experience. For this reason, I highly recommend making a Horny Goat Weed tea, this is my go-to pre-coital adult beverage. It dissolves nicely in steeped water and tastes pleasant. With Horny Goat Weed it’s ok to use a lot of the stuff, there’s a difference between using just a few hundred milligrams and take few heaping teaspoons of the stuff. It’s a benign herb so you can take a big dose without concerns about an overreaction or side effects.
Ashwagandha is also reputed as a sex and libido biohack, but I’ve found that if I took a bunch of Ashwagandha that I would sometimes have weak erections. But I do like taking some Ashwagandha in the evenings to wind down a bit from a long day and I usually mix it with Epimedium. I’m not sure if the two are synergistic but together they put me in a relaxed yet randy mood.
Subjectively, there’s not a huge noticeable difference between how my dick feels on this stuff versus other powdered Epimedium I’ve used but I trust this stuff more because it’s lab-verified as pure and free of toxins — see the PDFs attached below.
Summary of Epimedium Science
On Pubmed, you can find +700 scientific papers referencing Epimedium and two clinical trials in the past 5 years. I’ll summarize some of the recent interesting findings…
A recent animal study suggested a synergy between Epimedium and Metformin in decreasing Mitochondrial autophagy.
Sex Med. 2020 Mar 5. pii: S2050-1161(20)30020-9. doi: 10.1016/j.esxm.2020.01.006. [Epub ahead of print]
Icariin, the active ingredient in Epimedium had a beneficial effect on the heart health of Diabetic rats in a recent Chinese animal study.

It’s an immune hack.
A recent paper suggests that it helps to fortify the immune system from damage done by the all too common toxin Benzene. Chinese researchers in 2019 found that Icaritin the active ingredient in Epimedium, promotes tumor T-cell infiltration and induces antitumor immunity in mice. American and Chinese researchers collaborated on a 2018 paper, The effect of icariin on immunity and its potential application, which describes in-depth its wide array of positive effects on the immune system…
Recently, more and more studies have demonstrated the application of [Icariin] in autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, bronchial asthma, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus due to its anti-inflammatory. Additionally, [Icariin] also has the anti-tumor activities.
The effect of icariin on immunity and its potential application
Icariin (ICA) is a major bioactive monomer belonging to flavonoid glycosides attracted from Epimedium, being a classic…
A healthy immune system is your first line of defense against cancer, and there’s a lot of evidence that it’s more effective than the Slash, Burn, and Poison mainstream (and very expensive!) cancer treatments. Growing research indicates that Horny Goat Weed’s active molecular constituents have potent anti-cancer effects. Icariside II suppresses cervical cancer cell migration, according to another animal study. Chinese, American, and Japanese studies further validated an anti-cancer effect.
An animal study found that it was an antioxidant hack
Flavonoids ultrasonically extracted from [Epimedium] considerably affected antioxidant defense system in [Drosophila]
Flavonoids from Epimedium pubescens: extraction and mechanism, antioxidant capacity and effects on…
Background: is a famous medicinal plant in China, Southeast Asian and some other regions. Flavonoids are regarded as…
In bioscience, you come across the Latin word Drosophila, from time to time, do you know it means? Dragonfly.
A recent paper established its neuroprotective effect
Therefore, icariin treatment accelerated locomotor function recovery in [spinal cord injury], and its protective effects may be mediated via its antioxidant, anti‑inflammatory and anti‑apoptotic bioactivity.
Neuroprotective role of icariin in experimental spinal cord injury via its antioxidant…

A 2019 Singaporean clinical trial suggested that it could be a preventative measure of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women — this is a bone-weakening condition that causes many elderly to suffer from frequent injuries.
Levels of Epimedium prenylflavonoid metabolites observed in this study were consistent with levels demonstrated to have anti-osteoporotic effects in cellular and animal studies.
Pharmacokinetics of Prenylflavonoids following Oral Ingestion of Standardized Epimedium Extract in…

A Vietnamese study found that it reduces bone loss.

Purity is a concern with Nutraceuticals
Nutraceuticals come from the natural world, they tend to absorb the toxins in the environment around them, making many of the herbal supplements that you might find possibly Iatrogenic — they may actually do you more harm than good. This is why I wouldn’t buy any old Epimedium that I found on store shelves or online, especially if it’s cheap. I’d also prefer not to get my Epimedium in a “multi-vitamin” stack that combines it with a bunch of other things unless they proved its purity with a certificate of analysis. I enthusiastically recommend Lost Empire Herbs as they have the highest standards in the industry for quality assurance and purity testing.

Epimedium Dosage and Directions
- We have a 10:1 Water Extract available of Epimedium grandiflorum. This is far from isolated icariin as some other companies sell.
- Recommended dose is 1 teaspoon which is 1 gram. Some people like to take it 30–60 minutes before sex.
- Other people will find better results when they take it daily for a few weeks.
