What is Epimedium Sagittatum for?

Epimedium, also known as horny goat weed, was allegedly discovered when a Chinese goatherd noticed increased sexual activity among his flock after they ate the plant. This legend points to the apparent sexual potency of horny goat weed, and its honored place in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 2,000 years. The plant contains chemical compounds known as phytoestrogens, which is believed to be the main reasons for its numerous health benefits.
