    What's The Best Quality High % Icariin Supplement


    Been reading about icariin having to be at least 50% not to have too much estrogen producing ingredient in horny goat weed and to truly feeling positive effect mainly on erection but also on libido.

    Was looking at nutraplanet but only saw 1 supplement containing 50% icariin by APS with 0 reviews and low rating from 7 votes so I guess can't test buying there.

    Few other products there has 40% icariin.

    Heard 60% icariin products exist but expensive - still if anybody tried and had great experience I'd love to hear it.

    What's the highest % icariin supplement available at the moment or is any new product soon out having 50% icariin or higher?

    As you stated I found many 40% icariin supplements. I do believe though that anything 40%+ is good.

    I love high quality Icariin but have only used 40% and 50%. I have not had a chance to try 60% yet, but there are a few places that sell it. I made a post in an Icraiin thread a while back that listed some potential sellers/sites that I have watching. Here is a link to my post:

    Icariin - the estrogen booster

    Also, since that post was made I found that one of the retailers that only sold through EBay and Amazon now has their own site for direct selling. The company is Health Supplement Wholesalers. I have read at other boards that HSW is for real and that products are real, but so far it has only been for the most of their less expensive bulk items. I have yet to find a review for their 60% Icariin yet. I am considering giving them a try once my current supply of 40% Icariin is used up, but that might be a while. If you end up getting some 60% please share your results as well as where you were able to obtain it. I'd like to be able to find a reliable source for when I need to resupply.

    HSW has now 1 review not to feel anything so I guess finding good source is similar challenging as with Tongkat Ali source.

    What product containing 40% icariin are you using now?

    Well its only a 40% extract but I highly recommend this product if taken daily for sexual health if thats what your aim is.

    I'm tempted to order Icariin 60% by World ABS cause they are the same company where I ordered Tongkat 200:1 (2 years ago and still effective) which is the real deal so best chance their icariin should also be working.

    But won't test before end of April since now I'm testing fat burning stack since I've bought Alphamine, Forskolin-95, Erase Pro and Endosurge (on top of old stash of Tongkat).

    Actually had 2 bottles already in cart to buy then said to myself no point having bottles 6 weeks at home and not start testing.

    They even have discounts but not on their main website but at icariinhealth and ship domestically to US, UK and Canada so would appreciate if anybody wants to try and let me know how it works before I probably order in next 4-6 weeks.

    Like Forskolin-95 effects and Erase Pro as well regarding erection and libido at just 5 days.

    Looks like I might make my dream stack for erections & libido soon (so far Tongkat & Erase Pro best stack).

    higher %'s are not always better.

    This can be seen with Mucuna Pruriens/L-Dopa. When the % of extract gets too high, people start to report side effects.

    For almost all herbs, I much prefer a lower extract %, but taking a higher overall dose.

    I'd say yes and no with higher extract.

    Similar was with Tongkat Ali when standard extract was 50:1 then 100.1 came and when 200:1 came out most said it's scam cause it's not possible to make such extract and they were proved wrong since most 50:1 were under dosed.

    Most also say they don't feel much with icariin 20% or have estrogen side effects so I'd think icariin 60% should be best choice which of course needs to be tested in practice - same as with Tongkat 200:1.

    Usually more important is finding trustworthy supplier than high % extract and if you can manage both then this should be the way to go.

    In case of Mucuna I'd agree with you - 98% L-Dopa containing extracts of Mucuna I don't fancy cause do belive other stuff in Mucuna works synergistic with L-Dopa inside so I'm a bit skeptic why new Endosurge Turbu contains 98% extract when original has 75% and 25% that work so great hmm.

    I was able to source a kilo from a raw ingredients supplier that deals directly with supplement companies and contract manufacturers. A good friend of mine owns a business that occasionally does business with them and he allowed me to order through his company. The supplier was hesitant due to the small order size, but they eventually found a source that was willing to do a small order and they got it for my friend as a favor. It wasn't cheap though, and I had to cap the whole kilo myself, but I have enough to last me a while. My friend was curious what I wanted it for as well as what it did and when I gave him some to try, he was hooked as well.

    I've heard that 50% or higher can cause visual disturbances in some and this was supposedly why some formulators switched to 40% starting back in 2009/2010. I think this is partly true, but the main reason they switched was probably due to the rising cost as that was around the time that Icariin started to get expensive.

    I'm leaning towards World ABS as well, but I might also buy a 1-2 months supply of bulk powder from HSW as well just to compare. I remember though that the original company that licensed 60% icariin to World ABS was MDA supplements and they claimed to use a water extraction method, so I am wondering if that would make a difference in potency and purity since most high extracts are usually done with ethanol extraction. This would make for a good future experiment.

    Extraction in water or ethanol can influence what other stuff you get in such extract or even how much icariin you get out of a plant.

    I think I've read somewhere that water extracts contains far less bad stuff like heavy metals but I'm not sure if i remembered correctly hmm.

    That vision disturbances could be similar as some experience with Viagra since icariin has 10% of it's potency so at taking their recommended 3x 300mg cap you'd get potency of 54 mg Viagra so could be true statement but at least you could try 2x/day instead of 3x/day which would land you at 36mg potency of Viagra.

    I've even read new discoveries on Viagra to be beneficial for brain activity which is claimed by icariin as well so long term usage of icariin for health benefits could be interesting to test as well.

    Maybe would be even more appropriate if 1 cap would contain only 1/3rd it's current dose to take it for this usage as well so you'd have more room to experiment and start with lower dose to take longer period hmm.

    Weird with so many benefits there're almost 0 feedback online for icariin 60% using long term for health benefits.

    I agree with everything you have said and more or less came to the same conclusions when I was trying to find out more about this ingredient after I had tried it. As for the benefits, depending on the person it can be hit or miss. Aside from differences in individual brain and body chemistry, there are also issues of whether or not the person is using the correct dosage for their size, the quality/potency/purity of the extract they are using, diet/training/lifestyle of the individual, as well as how in-tune the individual is with their own body.

    Taking Dopadex (250 mg 98%) 3 time daily and not a headache yet. Not saying it can't happen but it hasn't for me. Also using green tea with it.

    I ordered Icariin 60% by World A.B.S. and tested it for a week doing 2x 1cap (300mg) and 3x 1 cap and 2x 2 caps and 7th day 3 caps at once.

    Good is that there was no side effects but not much desired effect either.

    I read online half life of icariin extracts of horny goat weed to be around 2.5h (pure icariin around 3.2h) so taking 3x 1 cap 4-6h apart can't do much for you in erection department. They say effects build with time mostly on NO effect so would need to take longer time to test this.

    Erections are most correlated with amount of desire (being horny) so with Icariin mainly working on improving erections (if you're horny), I didn't see much improvement in erection department.

    I did notice sleep was better, toilette dump was softer and maybe mood slightly better but not much in libido department.

    I did take it just for a week so next week I'll stack it with Tongkat Ali (TKA) and Erase Pro (EP) and test it for 12 days (5 days on/2 days off).

    Have to say when I take nothing but have sexy chat with few girls I'm horny and hard more than any pill can do it for me - even if pill should work on making you horny and hard.

    Mostly it's all in your head not in your dick and that's why most products fail - even Viagra to work you need to be horny and with Icariin it's the similar thing.

    I've read one comment by one herbalist saying icariin turn your mind into mind of a sex rapist but I think this is not likely - would bet my money on TKA to do this before Icariin.

    Will report in next 2-3 weeks how stack of TKA & Icariin & EP works on me.

    Anybody else do share your experience as well.
