The pharmacological effects associated with Epimedium tonifying kidney and strengthening the bones and muscles are the functions of enhancing gonadal function, regulating immune function, promoting bone growth, and delaying aging. Epimedium also has a strong medicinal and health value, such as strong heart, lowering blood pressure, antiarrhythmia, increasing cerebral blood flow, bacteriostatic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, hypolipidemic and anti-tumor effects. However, today's development research is still in its infancy, and the research on the active ingredients of Epimedium is not deep enough, and the microscopic mechanism of pharmacological effects observed at the macroscopic level needs further study. Therefore, it is necessary to use our country's resources of Epimedium to combine the traditional medical experience of the motherland with modern science and technology, and conduct in-depth research on its active ingredients, preparation technology, pharmacological effects and clinical applications. Epimedium may become It has a promising prospect for enhancing immune function and immune regulation, anti-osteoporosis, and treating cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and has broad application prospects.
