    Hi Guys,

    This article about “horny goat weed” just appeared on MSN. I thought some of you might be interested in reading it. http://health.msn.com/health-topics/sexual-health/mens-sexual-health/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100217370&GT1=31028

    Yep, readers may be interested to know that Horny Goat Weed is also one of the ingredients in Enzyte and other such 'natural male enhancers'. You can go to their site and read the ingredients and actually make your own natural male enhancement by visiting your health food store. As I recall other ingredients would be: aveena sativa, tribulus, ginseng, I believe ginko biloba, and a few others. It used to contain Yohimbe, but as I recall they had to remove it from people having bad side effects. Yohimbe can actually be somewhat dangerous. I've tried it before, but it can mess with your heart. So be very careful if you ever try it.

    Hi All,

    I take Horny Goat Weed myself, but not every day. If I plan a session, I usually take it. It is available from a bunch of sources like Oh!! has said. I like the brand from GNC.
    I take yohimbe, but very, very rarely now because of the dangers. When my supply is depleted, I will no longer purchase more. Another vitamin I don't take as often now is vitamin E, because it is now known to be toxic to the body over time with larger doses.

    Most of the vitamins and minerals I take now are usually separate and not combined with others.

    B complex, C, tribulus, zinc, ginko biloba. and most important is my Omega 3, which I do take in larger doses.

    Oh!! I know you are an advocate of fish oil, and I'm with you!! I cannot say enough about Omega 3!
    It is not just great for helping with SEX, but also with your skin, cholesterol, heart, digestive system, etc.

    Good article rumel... Thanks

    skeeter_g,

    I second everything you say about fish oil, and to your list I add improved mood, more happiness and sense of well-being, and also anti-inflammatory effects. It is also my most important supplant. It's "horny Marmot weed"!

    Hi marmot,
    You are absolutely correct! I really forgot about a bunch of other good things about Omega 3!

    Everybody should be taking this elixer of life! (Except folks that are allergic to fish).
  • Hi Skeeter_G

    As you are an experienced user, can I ask does Horny Goat weed work within a short period of time like viagra or do you have to take it as a course of treatment?

    Regards

    Hi Paul,

    Horny Goat Weed extract and Viagra are not the same, but with use of "Omega 3" and adding HGW, sometimes it does seem similar.

    Horny Goat Weed work relatively fast in the system, but it does depend on your system and how fast you metabolize substances like vitamins or herbs.

    I have only tried Viagra a few times, and found that I don't like it at all. Taking Viagra for me was more of an experiment to see what all the talk was about.

    Viagra works very quickly because of its mode of action. And as quickly as you can achieve an erection, the benefits fade. I did not like the stuffy nose, or the bad stomach aches I had to deal with for the short time I go an erection.

    HGW, by itself will not give you an erection, (at least in my case) but used in conjunction with other natural herb substances, you will get very horny, and can have erections for sure!

    HGW tends to have few, if any, side effects and drug interactions, maybe allergies to some.

    Becaues herbs like HGW are not drugs, yes, you’ll need to give them a chance to "build up" in your system for your body to fully respond.

    I personally do not look for erections myself when using the Aneros, nor do I need an erection for a super-O. I think you will find this to be true of a lot of the members here on the forum.

    The biggest player of ALL the vitamins, minerals or herbs I take, is "Omega 3 fish oil", and in large doses!

    When I expect to have multiple sessions, I will supplement my Omega 3 with Horny Goat Weed, Maca, and sometimes extra Ginkgo Biloba for that "extra push". :D

    Hi G

    Thank you for this...

    I take 1,000 mg Omega 3 and 6,000 mg Ginko Bioba each day (one capsual each). What quantities do you take for the extra push?

    Regards

    Paul

    Hi serenget,

    I have to give some of the credit for my Omega 3 usage to Marrena Lindberg and to her book "The Orgasmic Diet".
    Marrena goes by the name of zaneblue here on this site... and does pop in from time to time.
    You can find her book on Amazon and it is only about $12.00 in paperback.

    Anyway, I take: EPA 3400mg, DHA 2600mg, daily. I get mine off the web, and it is one of the most expensive available, but is also one of the highest qualities. Omega-RX from Zone labs is the brand.

    Lots of Omega 3 oils are available, but try and get some really clean and pure oil.
    Don't try and take a large quantity all at once, you need to build up to the amount you will ultimately want to stay at for daily intake.

    My intake is based on my size and weight. Most men have to take a bit more because of their size and weight, where ladies can get by with a whole lot less because of their size and weight.

    I find that the Omega 3 really does turn me into a horny bastard, and I usually only have a few down days once and a while. Ginkgo Biloba is not one I take in huge quantities, but do take about 120mg per day. I do take Maca also, as I have mentioned, and I take at least 1000 mg a day.

    The one I usually save for the Viagra type affect is the Horny Goat Weed. and usually 1200mg is sufficient for me, but it may vary with others. At the same time I take the HGW, I will also take one extra 500mg of Maca.

    Definitely don't use the cheap fish oils as they may contain pesticides, heavy metals, PCB's taken from fish. Your brand should be very pure. Mollecular distillation is one technique to look for. Also the better brands won't tend to upset your stomach but the cheap ones will even in small amounts. You also want highly concentrated oil. That way you don't have to take a ton of it daily to get the affect. I currently use GNC's Triple Strength Fish Oil and add their DHA product. I take 4 triple strength and 7 DHA daily. Previously I used Res-Q brand. It was good and a good price, but caused some in the family more upset stomachs. I never have any problems with the GNC brand. Also nowadays you can get fish oil as a prescription. Depending on your co-pay that may be a good deal for you. The prescription fish oil is called Lovaza. Actually I just got a script that I haven't filled yet. I haven't calculated it yet, but it may be cheaper that way, and Lovaza is super pure and concentrated.

    As for Horny Goat Weed - I've never tried it by itself. Actually I need to get a bottle and check it out. Sounds like I am missing out on some fun. However a friend of mine bought some Enzyte off the web and gave me about 12 pills. I took a few of them just to see what they would do. I didn't notice much of an effect - you have to take them for a month or so for the main effect. However I did notice they put me in a very odd mood. It would make me somewhat mean around the house. Mentally I was feeling very indifferent and cold. I'm not sure if that was the horny goat weed in it doing that too me, but would be one thing to watch for as I try it, or any of us for that matter.

    Oh PS Marrena's forum is www.zaneblue.org - I bought her book too. :D

    PSPS: Don't forget to take your daily dark chocolate. I recommend 70% or above Cacao. Seems this really makes a difference particularly right before a session.

    Hi OH!!,

    Good additional info...
    I have been thinking of going and trying to get the prescription Fish Oil Lovasa myself.
    Let me know what you think when you fill your prescription. I personally don't understand why it is prescription... but oh well.

    I also used the Res-Q myself, but it does give me a slight upset stomach, and I burp up a bit of a lemon taste. Not one I plan to purchase again, but it may be OK for some folks.

    Sense you are now getting the GNC fish oil, GNC has a good Horny Goat Weed, That is where I purchase mine.

    Hi Skeeter_g, yep, as for the Res-Q for some reason some folks have a bit of problem with it even though it is supposed to be very pure. I think it may be derived from a different source and that may be part of the issue. I don't think it ever bothered me much, but I've never, ever had any burps or problems with the GNC brand. Talking with my Doc the other day when I got my Lovaza prescription he mentioned that not only is the quality important to prevent the fish burbs be he claimed the enteric coating of the capsule. The higher quality ones release further down in the digestive system.

    Sorry, I misspelled Lovaza previously above, but have edited / fixed. Here is a link also: http://www.lovaza.com/

    Yep, I'm sure GNC has a good Horny Goat Weed. Come to think of it I believe I've seen it there before. I can also possibly buy at Sun Harvest Farms, or Whole Foods. GNC is a good place, but sometimes there prices are a bit higher. That is true for the Tribulus I buy all the time. There used to be a body builder place nearby that had Tribulus for about $13.99/bottle and it was fairly concentrated. GNC is quite a bit higher. However, yeah, I think I'll pick up a bottle of the Horny Goat Weed and see what it does for me. When I actively want to hit on women all the time I know I have the right mixture. :lol:

    Thanks OH!!
    I did check out lovaza site before... Hey...I was just checking on the GNC site, and the Triple strength fish oil is better than I though... looks good, I may try out a couple of bottles.
    I was also checking the mg I should take from GNC, and I'm very similar to yours and what you are taking now.

    Do you get the extra DHA also from GNC? I notice they have a DHA 250 available that would be good for my extra DHA needed.

    Now foods/sports has a good Tribulus... 1000 mg, here is a good site and pricing. I take it also, (it is a horse pill).

    http://www.vitadigest.com/now-tribulus-90.html

    Check it out. may be what you want or need. 10.50 per bottle.


    To All,

    I usually take three items in combo to get to the sexual height of things:

    1. daily, Omega 3 fish oil, overall just very good for you body and mind, well being, etc.,etc. (makes me feel very sexual).
    2. daily, Maca, extra overall energy, sexual energy, and alertness. 1800-2250 mg. (no side affects, 0 toxicity).
    3. Can be taken daily, Horny Goat Weed! depends on my system. (Usually shoots me over the top like Viagra). :D

    Yeah, I currently use GNC's DHA, but at my dose I have to use a lot of bottles a month. I may see if I can find another source for the DHA where I don't have to take 7 a day.

    Actually since I'm going to try Lovasza - (4 daily) I'll have to calculate if I need to supplement that any to meet my previous level of EPA and DHA. I'm hoping my $50 monthly copay will be a better price than all the other fish oil I buy.

    Hey Skeeter_g, I stopped into Whole Foods Market today and picked up a bottle of Horny Goat Weed, and also some Aveena Sativa. I saw the Maca, and considered, but I didn't know anything about that and decided to pass.

    I'm starting to wonder though....I'm gonna get so jacked up these sexual herbs my mojo will to through the roof. :shock: I better have some good targets for all that sexual energy. On the other hand I believe sexual energy is also motivational energy for doing lots of activities such as physical exercise, etc.

    Guess if I put enough of these herbs together I'll have my own personal Enzyte, or Extends type product. I don't really have a problem with ED, but perhaps a little extra could never hurt. 8)

    Yep OH!!, you are making your own Extends type product without the bad stuff added. :D

    The beauty of that is that you can taylor it to you own sexual needs, and it is a hell of a lot cheaper!

    I have never had an ED problem myself, but you are correct, it does not hurt to have a little extra push when needed.

    I don't remember all my herbs (Just too many), but isn't Aveena Sativa kinda potent? let me know. I could be totally incorrect in my thoughts, and knowledge.

    Maca.... Maca is grown only in the high mountains of Peru. The peruvians add it to everything...
    The cook it into their daily food, for health, and vigor.
    There is "0" side affects, and no known toxicity to Maca.
    Maca is relatively new to the USA, and has become one of the new sexual herbs...

    Hi Guys!

    Thanks for starting this thread, Rumel!

    I started HGW with Maca every day (2 caps) and have done so now for 2 weeks, with no ill effects or drug interactions!

    I AM also taking 6000mg of Fish Oil and 200mg of Extra Strength CoQ10 (expensive!).

    Well, I think I have my Mojo back!

    I am so horny, I just can't stop feeling like I have to hump a fence post or whatever else presents itself to me or gets in my way! (watch-out!) LOL!

    I, for one, enjoy the feeling of being randy all the time and a little un-grounded . . .

    Works for me!

    Later, Hlaser99
