    If I were capping the 1000mg would be okay.
    But since I am just probably going to take the straight powder I prefer a higher strength and smaller dosage.

    Yeah thats fine but I was just saying people in general think 500mg at 50% is stronger than 1250mg at 20% and thats not the case, the dif. is actually with the supplier and the quality of the Epimidium.

    Well, that and the fact that with the higher extract, you are getting more Icariin and not everything else in HGW that you may not want to take a higher dose of. So in that regard a higher extract is far superior than mega-dosing HGW.

    True.... plus, there is a lot to be said for the extra space that can be utilized for other ingredients in a cap.

    All the alkaloids in HGW are important. Icariin is only important as a PDE-5 inhibitor and to increase acetylcholine.

    The libido and the semen volume and cortisol reduction come from other actives in HGW.
