Icariin holds many benefits especially so for men and that's what we will be focusing on in this article, yes Icariin is beneficial for women too however it is far more fruitful in terms of its benefits for the male variety.
The benefits of icariin for men are as follows:

Increased Muscle Mass For Bodybuilders
Boosted Mental Energy and Stamina
These benefits above result from the two primary functions of icariin, which are boosted Nitric Oxide and increased Testosterone delivery. These two functions make icariin from Horny Goat Weed a hugely sought after supplement for both men with sexual health-related issues and also for bodybuilders and other endurance type athletes.
Well there we are, you now know the benefits of icariin and how it works, so next, we will look at Horny Goat Weed in terms of icariin purity. Icariin content in Horny Goat Weed is measured as the percentage of icariin contained in any Horny Goat Weed extract and it does vary quite significantly. More commonly you will find Horny Goat Weed capsules which contain only 10% icariin, these are generally the cheapest to buy and the most commonly found extracts on the market. Then you will find 20% icariin, 30% icariin, 40% icariin, 50% icariin, and finally the most potent extract at 60% icariin purity.
If you compare a 10% icariin Horny Goat Weed extract to a 60% icariin Horny Goat Weed extract the difference in the benefits you will gain are literally 6 times greater for the 60% icariin, hence the purity of Horny Goat Weed is a hugely important factor which is often overlooked by first-time Horny Goat weed buyers.
