This is what several authorities on Chinese herbs have to say about the ingredients:
Epimedium sagittatum: "Epimedii is a very powerful yang (male) tonic herb. It’s power ranks almost with the animal yang tonics…It’s name can be translated as "the herb for the man who likes sex too much, like a goat" or "passionate goat weed"…This is what Epimedii is famous for. Women, too, take this herb to increase their sexual drive…This herb has been studied extensively in laboratories and clinics in modern China, Korea and Japan. It has been shown that Epimedii does increase sexual activity in animals and humans…It stimulates the sensory nerves throughout the body, and in particular the genital region…Epimedii increases sperm production in men…shown to have a moderate androgen-like influence on the testes, prostate gland and anal muscles, which will influence sexual desire and activity." (1)
"…Epimedium has powerful immune stimulating properties which can support the immune functions of healthy individuals and significantly enhance the immune systems of those who are immune-compromised…Recent confirmed studies have shown that Epimedium has significant anti-HIV activity."
"…People who are in good health may use Epimedium safely and regularly to enhance their sexual power and build their immune systems. HIV infected individuals and other people with weakened immune systems may use Epimedium regularly as long as they are getting a full spectrum of yin tonics, chi tonics and blood tonics." (1)
"’Licentious Goat Weed’: literal english translation for Epimedii…fortifies the yang (male) ..for impotence…" (2)
"…fortifies yang…for impotence…" (3)
"Warms the kidneys and strengthens the yang element (virility)…" (4)
"It is a Beriberidaceous plant said to have strong aphrodisiac properties…goats eating the plant are excited to excessive copulation, hence the Chinese name (yin-yang huo)" (5)
Schisandra chinensis: "Both men and women use it to promote vigor and alertness…if used for 100 days, Schisandra is said to purify the blood, sharpen the mind, improve memory, rejuvenate the Kidney energy (especially the sexual functions in both men and women) and cause the skin to become radiantly beautiful...Schisandra is respected as a health giving tonic in the same class as Ginseng and Ganoderma (Reishi)…it is said to increase ‘the water of the genital organs’ referring to the sexual fluids….Schisandra is said to promote the production of semen and is famous for it’s ability to prevent premature ejaculation, relieve sexual fatigue and increase sexual staying power in men…"
Schisandra is said to increase circulation in and sensitivity of the female genitals…
Many women claim increased genital warmth and sensation after using Schisandra for a period of time "…for both men and women, Schisandra is considered to have aphrodisiac qualtities…it tends to contain sexual fluids until the appropriate time for their release. Thus, consuming Schisandra for a period of time, one tends to build up sexual fluids." (1)
