According to webmd.com: "Xanthoparmelia is a type of lichen. Lichen is an organism that is made up of fungus and algae living together. Xanthoparmelia is used to make medicine.
Xanthoparmelia is used to treat sexual dysfunction, especially erectile dysfunction(ED), as well as to increase sexual desire (as an aphrodisiac). It is also used for cancer.
Products containing xanthoparmelia are often marketed for sexual enhancement. In 2004, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seized numerous brand name supplement products containing xanthoparmelia because these products also contained the prescription drug tadalafil (Cialis). This drug is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED)."
From the manufacturer:
Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs is pleased to offer a 12:1 Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa Extract. The Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa Certificate of Analysis (COA) of this particular batch is shown above. Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa may induce smooth muscle relaxation allowing for maximum arterial dilation and increased blood flow. Due to the fact that Xanthoparmelia increases blood flow, it is excellent for those seeking a better "pump" during exercise. *** These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on slow speed equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.
