Yohimbine is a powerful supplement that comes from the bark of an evergreen tree originally grown in the West African nations of Zaire, Cameroon, and Gabon.
Yohimbine is also considered to be an alkaloid and is the most active and effective ingredient found within this plant. As a supplement, Yohimbine has found its way into a number of diet and weight loss formulas, as well as sports and energy drinks.
One of the main beneficial effects of Yohimbine HCL is as a fat burner and weight loss agent. This supplement is reportedly particularly helpful for individuals looking to lose fat from their trouble areas, like the abdomen and thighs.
Yohimbine helps to speed up heart rate and even helps blood vessels to dilate, or open up, enabling an increased blood flow. This improves circulation and cardiovascular function. But more importantly, it also speeds up the metabolism and increases the core body temperature, which leads to an improved fat tissue breakdown and removal.
Another interesting benefit of Yohimbine HCL is that it can boost libido. This effects occurs in both women and men, although in slightly different ways. Women will experience increase blood flow to their genitals, which will ordinarily lead to a greater enjoyment and sensitivity to sexual activity.
Men will also experience increased blood flow to their genital area, usually resulting in more frequent, firmer, and more intense erections. This is also part of the reason why this supplement is useful in treating incidents of erectile dysfunction.
There are some Yohimbine side effects that should be considered. These include an irregular or rapid heartbeat, stomach upset, excitation, tremor, sleep problems, anxiety, high blood pressure, dizziness, drooling, sinus pain, irritability, headache, frequent urination, bloating, rash, nausea, and vomiting.
It is not advisable to use high doses, as this could result in potentially serious side effects. This includes difficulty breathing, very low blood pressure, and possible heart problems. It is always advisable to consult with a qualified medical professional before beginning usage.
People with Schizophrenia and prostate problems should use this supplement with caution. Those with PTSD, liver disease, kidney disease, high (or low) blood pressure, chest pain, heart disease, anxiety, depression, or diabetes should not use Yohimbine.
