When to Take Horny Goat Weed - Quick Summary

  • Horny Goat Weed or Epimedium is a popular aphrodisiac and natural testosterone support herb.
  • You want to look for a fairly high Icariin content, which is the main active ingredient. 
  • Horny Goat Weed is often taken first thing in the morning, mid afternoon or just before your workouts.

Benefits of Horny Goat Weed

Horny Goat Weed, also known as Epimedium is a herb frequently used as an aphrodisiac and also as a testosterone support supplement. While most of the positive studies have been done in animals, there is still plenty of promise in the use of Horny Goat Weed to support testosterone and erectile potency. It has also been shown to assist with neuroprotection and benefitting bone health.

Testosterone as many of you know is considered the crucial hormone that is responsible for supporting muscle growth and all the changes that turn a boy into a man. Increased and optimised levels of testosterone not only support performance benefits and body composition but also supports a healthy libido.

How to Take Horny Goat Weed

Horny Goat Weed is often found as an oral supplement and mostly in capsule form, although powdered forms do exist. In supplement form, you want to look for the Icariin content, which is considered the main active ingredient. Different supplements will contain different concentrations of both horny goat weed and its active ingredient Icariin. Here are some pointers on what to look for:

  • Consume roughly 80mg/kg of body weight of Icariin
  • This figure has been calculated from animal studies, so it’s probably best to start off with a smaller dose and work your way up.
  • You can easily work out how much of the active ingredient is present through the often advertised Icariin content percentages, which generally range from 40-60%

Best Time to Take Horny Goat Weed

While it isn’t clearly established what the best time to take Horny Goat Weed is, you could use a similar protocol as you would with most other testosterone support supplements. A dose in the morning with the optional second dose before your workouts or in the afternoon is considered ideal.
