Ingredient Spotlight: Epimedium Extract

Looking for greater blood flow and better pumps, both in the gym and in the bedroom?


Then, you don’t want to miss today’s ingredient spotlight as we discuss a killer ingredient that helps enhance blood flow to all regions of the body.


That ingredient is none other than Epimedium.

What is Epimedium?

Epimedium (aka horny goat weed) is a plant that has been used for thousands of years in China for erectile dysfunction, postmenopausal syndrome, and osteoporosis. This potent botanical is rich in icariin -- a type of flavonoid prized for its ability to boost nitric oxide and blood flow.


Icariin aids blood flow via inhibition of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5).[1,2]


In case you weren’t aware, PDE5 inhibition is the same mechanism through which many world-class male-enhancement products target.


Research also indicates that Icariin may possess testosterone-mimetic properties[3], which is why it’s included in Terminator-Test.


In addition to its alluring anabolic properties, epimedium has also been historically used for cardiovascular support since the bioactives in the plant offer anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and lipid-modulatory effects.

Plus, icariin has also been found to enhance eNOS expression and NO production in human endothelial cells.

Where Can I Find Epimedium?

Every serving of Killer Labz Terminator-Test supplies 150mg of epimedium extract, standardized to 20% icariin.


In addition to horny goat weed, Terminator-Test also supplies a full complement of potent natural muscle builders and testosterone support agents to aid male sex hormone production, lean mass gains, muscle recovery and sexual performance.
