Efficacy and Effects of Icariin Solgar

Icariin Solgar, as one of the active ingredients of Epimedium, a kidney-invigorating and yang-boosting herb, can promote the function of the reproductive system. Icariin can inhibit ferrous sulfate/hydrogen peroxide-induced oxidative stress injury of human sperm, activate ERK1/2 signaling pathway, promote the proliferation of testicular vegetative cells Sertoli, and enhance male reproductive function; The thalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis up-regulates the expression of dopamine and serotonin in the hypothalamus, activates the PI3K/AKT/eNOS/NO signaling pathway, increases the concentration of NO and serum testosterone, shortens the capture latency and ejaculation latency, and improves capture and ejaculation rates As well as testis and prostate index, it can improve the sexual function of male mice; it can activate the NO-cyclic guanosine monophosphate signaling pathway, inhibit the expression of phosphodiesterase type 5, and improve erectile dysfunction. Icariin Solgar can also up-regulate the levels of cytochrome P450 17 and 19, promote the expression of aromatase, induce the proliferation of ovarian granulosa cells, and increase the production of estrogen and progesterone; it can increase the weight of the ovary, uterus and pituitary gland, and promote the growth of female. Pubertal development in rats, prolonging the duration of estrus in pubertal rats. In addition, icariin can reduce the levels of follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, increase the level of estradiol, up-regulate the expression of ovarian anti-Mullerian hormone, increase the Bcl-2/Bax ratio in ovarian tissue, and improve the ovary of aging mice Follicular development, inhibits follicular atresia, and improves its fertility.

Icariin Solgar has a good effect on improving various neurological diseases such as cerebral ischemia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and depression. Icariin Solgar can increase the level of superoxide dismutase (SOD), reduce the expression of amyloid precursor protein and β-secretase, reduce the production and accumulation of Aβ, and attenuate the Aβ-mediated axon and dendrites. Atrophy, and improve the spatial learning and memory ability of Alzheimer’s disease model rats. Icariin also inhibits Aβ-induced hyperphosphorylation of serine 396, 404 and threonine 205 of tau protein, thereby exerting a protective effect on nerve cells. Icariin Solgar can activate the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/protein kinase B (Akt) and MAPK/ERK signaling pathways, and reverse the B-lymphoma-2 gene in the striatum ( B-cell lymphoma-2, Bcl-2), Bcl-2 associated X protein (Bcl-2 associated X protein, Bax) and caspase-3 (cystein-asparate protease-3, Caspase- 3) Changes in expression that inhibit the sustained decrease in striatal dopamine content and the loss of tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive neurons. Icariin also inhibited 6-hydroxydopamine/lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammatory damage and behavioral changes of brain dopamine neurons in rats. Icariin Solgar can inhibit NF-κB inhibitory protein α degradation and NF-κB activation, up-regulate peroxisome proliferators-activated receptors (PPARs) α and γ protein levels, and alleviate neuroinflammation. Icariin can also reduce the levels of lactate dehydrogenase and malondialdehyde, attenuate SOD activity, enhance antioxidant capacity, inhibit the increase of intracellular calcium concentration, and attenuate ischemia/reperfusion neuronal damage.

Icariin Solgar can promote the formation and activation of osteoblasts, while inhibiting the formation and function of osteoclasts to relieve osteoporosis. Icariin can activate ERα-Wnt/β-catenin and Notch signaling pathways, up-regulate the expression of runt-related transcription factor 2, a key osteoblast gene, and play an osteogenic role; it can activate mitogen-activated protein kinase (mitogen-activated protein kinase) kinase, MAPK) signaling pathway, increase the gene expression of type I collagen, osteocalcin and osteotin, enhance the self-renewal ability of bone mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) in vitro and in vivo, induce BMSCs to osteoblasts differentiation, thereby enhancing osteogenic differentiation. In addition, icariin can promote the synthesis of estrogen and has estrogen-like effects, and can activate extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), c-Jun N-terminal kinase (c-jun n-terminal kinase) , JNK), promote the proliferation of osteoblasts, activate BMP-2/Smad4, and increase the viability of osteoblasts. Icariin Solgar can down-regulate hypoxia-inducible factor-1α, prostaglandin E2 and osteoclast differentiation factor-nuclear transcription factor receptor activator ligand by inhibiting the activity of MAPKs and nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB). The synthesis of receptor activator of NF-κB ligand (RANKL) inhibits the differentiation of hematopoietic cells into osteoclasts.

Icariin Solgar can activate the p38MAPK pathway, increase the expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator-1α, PPARα and nuclear respiratory factor 1, promote the differentiation of embryonic stem cells into cardiomyocytes, and upregulate the specificity of cardiomyocytes after differentiation. The expression of myosin light chain-1v, atrial natriuretic peptide, cardiac troponin I, troponin, and sodium-calcium exchanger maintains the normal functional structure of cardiomyocyte beating. In addition, icariin can also activate the ERK-dependent signaling pathway and stimulate the differentiation of mouse adipose-derived stem cells into cardiomyocytes.

Icariin Solgar can inhibit the activation of caspase-3, up-regulate the level of eNOS, promote the production of nitric oxide (NO), and reduce the oxidative stress damage of endothelial cells. Icariin can reduce reactive oxygen species levels, activate PI3K/Akt/eNOS signaling pathway, and delay homocysteine-induced endothelial cell senescence. Icariin can reduce the expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 and E-selectin, inhibit the adhesion of monocytes and endothelial cells, and improve atherosclerotic lesions.

Icariin Solgar improves the condition of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, bronchial asthma, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus, which is related to the regulation of lymphocyte function. Icariin can inhibit the differentiation of helper T cells (Th) 1, 17 and improve autoimmune encephalomyelitis in mice. Icariin can inhibit the activation of STAT3 in T cells, down-regulate the proportion of Th17 cells, inhibit the production of interleukin-17, and improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; it can regulate the ratio of Th1/Th2 cells in the lung tissue of asthmatic rats, the proportion of asthmatic The balance of Th17/regulatory T cells in mice improves asthma; it can increase the activity of lymphokine-activated killer cells and natural killer cells, and improve human immunity.

In addition, Icariin Solgar has anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-aging and other effects. The various pharmacological effects and low toxicity of icariin lay the foundation for its wide application. According to the relevant national website information, there are 183 formulas involving the raw material Epimedium in the formulas of health care products for relieving physical fatigue, indicating that Epimedium has great potential for development and utilization, so Epimedium as the main carrier of icariin is Epimedium Agaricus extract is bound to make a difference.
