What is the correct 60% icariin Horny Goat Weed dosage?

Recommended Icariin Horny Goat Weed Dosage

Please Note: The following information covering ‘the correct dose of 60% icariin Horny Goat Weed extract and how much icariin one should take each day’, is a guide aimed specifically at men.

The majority of independent dosage advice regarding Horny Goat Weed/icariin has been structured upon 'non-human based' trials and research, however the way and ratios in which humans process and utilize active plant ingredients differs from other mammals, therefore such guidance is inaccurate. The only truly reliable means in which to gage the amount of icariin required for humans to gain the best possible health benefits, is to perform trials at a 'human level'. This is precisely why the following dosage information is based on trials and research performed entirely at human level.

The dosage per day figures below remain the same whether one is taking Horny Goat Weed/icariin for erectile dysfunction (male impotence), low sex drive (low libido), bodybuilding, or for boosting up sporting performance of any nature.

To gain the best possible results in terms of replenishing ‘nitric oxide delivery’ and/or increasing the ‘effective utilization of free-form Testosterone’, men should take an amount of between 800mg to 1,000mg of 60% icariin Horny Goat Weed extract each day. This translates to a recommended dosage of 'actual pure icariin flavonols' of 480mg to 600mg per day (i.e. 60% of 800mg = 480mg & 60% & 1,000mg = 600mg respectively).

This 'daily dose milligram range' allows an individual to efficiently build up their levels of sexual health and/or athletic performance at a safe, steady and effective rate.

What Daily Dosage Does Icariin 60™ Weigh In At?

Based on the most effective 60% icariin Horny Goat Weed extract dosage range per day of between 800mg and 1,000mg, icariin 60™ sits very comfortably at the high-potency dosage of 900mg per day i.e. 3 x 300mg capsules per day (as per the manufacturer). This yields an 'actual pure icariin flavonols' intake of 540mg per day.

What Is The Recommended Way To Take Icariin 60™ Capsules?

There are three dosage options in which icariin 60™ Horny Goat Weed capsules can be taken for full benefit, these are as follows:

  • Taking 3 capsules in one serving (one time-slot) each day.
  • Taking 2 capsules in the morning and 1 capsule in the evening.
  • Taking 1 capsule in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening.

In respect to the above three dosage options, people usually adopt the one that is the most convenient for their particular lifestyle. A glass of water is always suggestible when taking the capsules. Food however is by no means a requirement, but simply an option.

HOT TIP!!

How To Calculate The 'Actual Pure Icaiin Flavonols' Dosage Per Day Of Any Given Horny Goat Weed Supplement/Product

STEP 1:

Firstly locate the 'Supplement Facts' table for the product in question, this is usually on the rear of the product label and/or some web-stores will display an image of it on their product page. Then you need to locate the actual 'extract' milligram figure for the Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium). This can be trickier than first thought because some manufacturers' like to state the 'pre-extracted' milligram figure which refers to the weight of the raw Horny Goat Weed plant parts prior to actual extraction down to a pure powder. This 'pre-extracted' figure will sometimes be referred to as whole plant, whole herb, plant parts, dried herb, dry plant, raw leaf etc. and is usually a very high figure in the thousands. The figure you need to locate is the actual 'extract' (powder) milligram figure and if this is not stated clearly by the manufacturer then avoid altogether, as you essentially cannot ever know the actual dosage of the product.

Here are 2 examples of how some Horny Goat Weed manufacturers' describe their milligram figures:

**Horny Goat Weed Extract 100mg (20:1) equivalent to  2,000mg** - This example is relatively easy to understand i.e. the 'whole plant' equivalent weight (pre-extracted) is 2,000mg and has been extracted down at a ratio of 20:1, therefore the actual 'extract' milligram figure is 100mg.

**Horny Goat Weed Extract equivalent to whole Horny Goat Weed 1,000mg** - This example is somewhat deceptive because they mention the word "extract" but then straight after that they state "equivalent to whole", so in this example the 'pre-extracted' (whole) milligram figure is 1,000mg however the 'extract' figure is never actually given, meaning that you don't ever really know the actual amount of Horny Goat Weed 'extract' you are taking. In this situation simply avoid the product entirely.

STEP 2:

Once you have the 'extract' milligram figure you then need to calculate how many milligrams of extract are contained within each capsule/tablet. To do this you need to once again look at the 'Supplement Facts' table and check whether the label states 'Amount Per Serving' or 'Amount Per Capsule/Tablet'. If the label states 'Amount Per Capsule/Tablet' then you have the figure right there, finished. However, if the label states 'Amount Per Serving' then all you need to do is look at the section above for the 'Serving Size', and however many capsules/tablets the 'Serving Size' states, you then simply divide the 'Amount Per Serving' extract milligrams figure by the number of capsules/tablets in the 'Serving Size'.

For Example: Let's say that a manufacturer's Horny Goat Weed product has a 'Serving Size' of 2 capsules/tablets and an 'Amount Per Serving' of 600mg Horny Goat Weed 'extract'. All you then need to do is divide 600mg by the 2 capsules/tablets which means that each capsule/tablet contains 300mg of Horny Goat Weed 'extract' powder.

STEP 3:

Now that you know the milligrams of Horny Goat Weed extract per capsule/tablet, you next need to calculate the milligrams figure of 'actual pure icariin flavonols' contained within each capsule/tablet, and to do so, simply divide the extract milligrams figure by the standardized icariin percentage stated on the product label/website. So, continuing with the above example, each capsule/tablet contains 300mg of Horny Goat Weed extract and let's say that the standardized icariin percentage is 60%, therefore the calculation is simply 60% of 300mg equaling 180mg of 'actual pure icariin flavonols' per capsule/tablet.

If the manufacturer/retailer does not state clearly the standardized icariin percentage on their product label/website then avoid, as this failure to declare is very common in Horny Goat Weed products that contain very low percentages of pure icariin flavonols.

STEP4:

And Finally, now that you have the milligram figure of 'actual pure icariin flavonols' per capsule/tablet you can easily calculate how many milligrams of pure icariin flavonols per day the Horny Goat Weed product is providing as its dosage. Do this simply by multiplying the milligrams of pure icariin flavonols per capsule/tablet figure by the number of capsules/tablets in which the manufacture recommends to take per day. Hence continuing with the example above, the 'Serving Size' is 2 capsules/tablets and let's say the 'Directions of Use/Suggested Usage' is to take 2 capsules/tablets daily, the figure is therefore calculated as 2 x 180mg, equaling a total dosage of 360mg of 'actual pure icariin flavonols' per day.

As you can see, based on the recommended dosage of 'actual pure icariin flavonols' i.e. 480mg to 600mg per day, an intake of 360mg per day is not enough to gain the maximum benefit from Horny Goat Weed extract, hence the importance of knowing how to calculate the dosage figures.
