    I have heard of several men praising Horny Goat Weed and a natural way of helping with E/D. One is married to an RN, she lectures on many topics including herbal treatments. He has prostate problems and this allows him to perform. Another was a "pumper" for years, herniated himself from all the pumping and then could not complete the act.. limp before he was done. He tried the HGW and swore it was like being 16 again.

    GNC here carried it, also online as well. The name is finny but Chinese herbalist apparently have used it for years. Now I am not in a hurry to tried powdered animal penis, like you often see in the Chinese remedies for such a thing..lol.. but this seems to really work!

    Has anyone tried this and what have you experienced?

    I did a search for a thread on this topic but the results were so random and none specifically named as this is.. :cool:

    HGW works very well as does Maca.. Some report some mild side-effects.

    I have tried HGW and Maca but find no effect at all. Perhaps I have not yet found the proper dose for me but the recommend use on the label equaled nothing.

    What does work, if not overdosed, is "Stamina-Rx". Get it at CVS now but you can find it for less money on the internet [ebay store or amazon etc].

    I suggest the first time you try it cut the tablet in half and see how that does. Wait an hour or so. If that doesn't give you the desired effect or if there are no side effects like a headache, then take the other half. One is too much for me. It is powerful stuff.

    You might want to run Google on it to see the ingredients and other descriptions, sources and prices. It contains no Maca or HGW.

    Enjoy!

    I wouldn't recommend maca or horny goat weed.

    Maca makes you hornier, but not through increasing testosterone.

    Horny goat weed has often been scientifically discredited.

    Try using Ginkgo. A good one has specs similar to this one:

    Ginkgo Biloba Certified Extract 120 Mg, 365 Capsules

    Also, L-arginine HCL powder is great for achieving erections, it will increase
    growth hormone and testosterone too if done before bedtime, which again
    will aid the erection process.

    Lastly, try having your diet consist of fat for at least 40 procent or more. Testosterone requires fat to get constructed, that and cholesterol.


    Take care

    I've tried HGW, but didn't really get anything out of it. Most of the effect is probably mental rather than physical. Be careful of any botanicals, just because it's natural doesn't mean that it is safe. The dose makes the poison.

    Guys be careful with these herbs because they can be toxic. If you've ever had hepititis, DO NOT USE MACA or any other strong herbs because they will cause severe liver and kidney problems. Another thing I'd like to say, I've had several skin cancers on top of my bald head for several years now and after drinking aloe vera jell everyday mixed with a few ounces of unsweetened cranberry or pomegranate juice and an ounce of flaxseed oil, they have disappeared within the last 2 months. THEY ARE GONE! I use "Lily of the Desert" whole leaf aloe, R.W. Knudsen juices and any good flaxseed oil. The aloe is about $25 a gallon but it's worth every dime. Don't bother with the cheaper aloe, it's not nearly as good. Aloe is a healer on the outside as well as on the inside. A friend in Florida healed severe lesions on his liver with this stuff and baffeled his doctors. You know, they don't want you to know these things.

    I have been using L-Arginine for 3 months now. With much success. I sometimes get a pudgy just from pissing and can stay hard during sex no problem. I take 1000mg daily with food.

    Horny Goat Weed, itself, is an herb whose botanical name is Epimedium. Most forumlations sold as Horny Goat Weed are combination of ingredient products that include Maca and several other things, such as Mucuna pruiens.

    Epimedium is supposed to work by increasing your level of free testosterone.

    Maca is supposed to increase your endurance. It usually has some effect on blood pressure, and reportedly can raise it under some circumstances and lower it under others.

    Mucuna pruiens contains L-dopa which gets converted into dopamine. If you don't have a dopamine deficiency, consuming Mucuna pruiens or anything else that contains L-dopa (such as fava beans) can send your blood pressure soaring to the level of hypertensive crisis.

    I have tried Epimedium by itself. The effect I felt was very mild and nothing to get excited about.

    Gingko has been recommended for various things. It acts as a vasodilator in the extremities, particularly the head, and can give you a headache. Also, it is a farely potent blood thinner.

    Stamina Rx, when it first hit the market, contained Cialis. The FDA made the manufacturer take the Cialis out. Supposedly it still contains yohimbe, which elevates blood pressure substantially by blocking alpha2 receptors.

    One herbal product that doesn't get mentioned much around here that works pretty well for me without any side effects is Muira puama. Solaray sells is in 300 mg capsules. I take just one capsule. It isn't an erectile aid, and it doesn't increase endurance much. But it does make you feel hornier. Your cock and balls feel more sensitive, sort of a pleasant itching-like feeling similar to what you would get from using a vibrator or electrostimulation.
