The Competing Histories of Horny Goat Weed

Horny goat weed – it’s as powerful an ingredient as it is silly a name. This weed can help your joints, knees, back, arthritis and even memory loss. Of course, with the name, you were also able to guess that it can help boost sexual desire and even erectile dysfunction. It’s not just limited to offering benefits to men, either: it can reduce bone loss in women post menopause, too. It’s been used for thousands of years to help with all of those issues. However, there is some debate as to where that giggle inducing name came from.

Horny Goat Weed Origins

Swanson Vitamins noted, around two thousand years ago, there was a goat herder in some of China’s highest elevated regions. There he watched his goats closely as he was good at his job. He noticed some weird behavior in them one day. As he kept close watch of the goats, he couldn’t quite place his finger on it. Then, one day it hit him: seemingly out of nowhere, the goats became really sexually excited. He couldn’t figure out why. He kept researching, and eventually discovered that the goats acted that way when the goats were by a “particular patch of flowering plants”, says Swanson. Hence, the weed. That’s one story.

One Story: Goats in a Field

That origin story for the name “horny goat weed” makes sense. There were many goats, when they were around the weed, they got… well, horny. Very straightforward. An article from Medicine Hunter noted, “The plant was reputedly a favorite of the sexually hyperactive yin yang, a mythic creature which enjoyed one hundred orgasms a day”. So hyperactive in fact, that Yin Yang is known for having “one hundred orgasms in a day”, says . This story is a bit less believable than the one with the goat herder and his goats, but nonetheless, it shows the appeal of this goat weed and why people continue to use it today.

Why Supplements Include the Weed

We put horny goat weed in our Pure Balance supplements because it helps to balance out everything else in the supplement. So, when you take it, you’ll get the goat weed to ignite your sex drive, but you’ll also get all of the vitamins and ancient herbs that help you to manage stress better, too. Instead of just having a few peaks of sexual desire, you’ll feel good the entire day through. Instead of having to take some pills for increased sexual desire and some more pills to feel better and yet more pills for anxiety, you can just take two pills a day to get the entire effect.

Stronger Blood Flow = Energy

The key to how the weed works is that it leads to stronger blood flow. Of course, that’s going to make anyone’s sexual drive take off. But, that’s also part of how it gives you the increased energy and more.
