Epimedium Sagittatum Extract Icariin 60% Powder Oil Introduction
Epimedium, also called horny goat weed, grows as an ornamental herb in Asia and the Mediterranean. In Asia, its leaves have been used for treating fatigue and boosting sex drive for a long history since 16th century. Nowadays, the plant is a traditional Chinese medicine and is widely used as dietary supplement in western countries.
Epimedium offers effective support in conditions that result from kidney yang deficiency, such as impotence and chronic prostatitis in males, and irregular menses, infertility and menopause in females. Epimedium's glycosides help to tonify and regulate both androgenic and estrogenic reproductive functions. have aphrodisiac properties in males, increasing the production of sperm, stimulating the sensing nerves, and indirectly promoting sexual desire. Epimedium is ideal for adding to sexual enhancement formulas.
Epimedium extract is a product processed from dried stems and leaves such as Epimedium. The product extract has many specifications, and icariin or total flavonoids are usually used as standardized indicators. It has a male hormone-like effect, which is used to improve the body's immunity, reduce blood pressure, and has obvious inhibitory effects on infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus and poliovirus; there are also antitussive, expectorant and antiasthmatic effects.
1. Impact on sexual function
Epimedium extract has a certain role in promoting gonadal function. Flavonoids such as icariin have the effect of tonifying kidney and strengthening yang. 30-1000 μg/l can promote the secretion of estradiol from follicular granulosa cells, and promote the secretion of corticosterone from adrenocortical cells at 1000 μg/l. At the same time, EPS can increase the level of gonadotropin and mainly increase the level of FSH.
2. Improve the body's immune function
50% methanol extract of Epimedium can inhibit lymphocyte transformation. The total flavonoids of Epimedium can make the "yang deficiency" mice form high cell function and antibodies, and significantly enhance the immune function of human T cells. Both EPS and EI have immunomodulatory effects.
Both EPS and EI have antioxidant activities that enhance antioxidant enzyme activity and reduce the role of free radical products.
4. Anti-aging effect
Epimedium extract can inhibit the cell passage, prolong the growth period, regulate the immune and secretion system, improve the body's metabolism and function of various organs and resist decay.
5. Cardiovascular effects
The non-amino acid portion of the icariol extract significantly increased the coronary flow of the isolated rabbit heart. Decoction and alcohol infusion have a blood pressure lowering effect. Icariin can directly relax vascular smooth muscle and expand the coronary, femoral and cerebral arteries. The mechanism of action is to inhibit the extracellular calcium influx of vascular smooth muscle cells.
6. Other effects
It has the effect of preventing osteoporosis, and the crude extract of Epimedium has antitussive, antitussive and antiasthmatic effects.
