I can’t comment on the horny goat weed, but I have sold maca supplements and can comment there. I sell supplements in my chiropractic practice and often do before and after lab work to evaluate the effectiveness. I can’t recall ever using the maca alone, but when used in conjunction with DHEA (and often DIM as well), I have seen improvements in hormone profiles measured in blood.

This protocol in females has been reported to me to improve libido, among other things. The husbands encourage their wives to continue the protocol and don’t complain about paying for it, so I consider that to be some evidence of the effectiveness.
