As you stated I found many 40% icariin supplements. I do believe though that anything 40%+ is good.
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?
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.
My girlfriend is sort of a nympho (she says I turned her into one..LOL..I have no idea how...) but this stuff helps in many ways.
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 , , and (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 effects and 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 & 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.

Ive taken 20%, granter never took 1200mg of it. But old NP bulk 50% at 500mg was awesome! Veins, Pump, Strengh, Libido! One of my all time fav compounds I can actually feel!
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'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 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 also use Dopadex and have never suffered headaches from it.
