Horny Goat Weed — The Story Behind the Name

Horny Goat Weed is the literal translation of Ying Yang Huo in Chinese. You read the name and instantly know what it’s all about. As legend has it, about 2,000 years ago, a goat herder somewhere in the high elevations of China noticed some peculiar behavior in his flock. But the behavior only came about at certain times. The goat herder couldn’t figure it out. So he studied the flock until he discovered the secret. The goats became overly sexually excited whenever they fed on a particular patch of flowering plants. That is the reason why the plant is called Horny Goat Weed.
