While Yohimbine HCL has been proven to be a very effective supplement in a number of areas, you do need to ensure that you are taking the proper dosage as taking too much could lead to some unwanted side effects.
Thankfully, even a small dose will set off the andrenergic system of the body that regulates the levels of adrenalin and noradrenaline within your body.
As the levels of these two hormones increase, there are a number of effects within the body.
The heart begins to pump blood faster
The blood vessels themselves begin to dilate, enabling an increased blood flow
Your core temperature rises, increasing the effect of calorie burning
Adrenaline and noradrenaline start to work on the cellular level causing more fat to be released from within your cells
White aidpose (i.e. stored fat) tissue is broken down and released into the blood, and then burned for more energy.
A good rule of thumb for determining the proper dose is by looking at your current body weight. Many different clinical studies and trials have determined the ideal dose is .2 mg of Yohimbine HCL per kilogram of body weight.
This means that someone weighing 180 pounds (80 kg) should take about 16 mg of Yohimbine per day. Someone who weighs 220 pounds (100 kg) should take closer to 20 mg per day.
Many individuals take Yohimbine as a sexual aid. For this purpose, you should definitely take less than if you are looking to simply use weight. A good rule of thumb might to use half of the recommended dosage for weight loss.
Women may even consider an even lower dose if using solely for the purpose of increasing sexual stimulation.
Ideally, you want to spread this total dosage out over three equal-sized administrations throughout the day. For example, take your first dose shortly after waking up, the next just before lunch, and the final administration either 30 minutes before the evening meal or 30 minutes before exercise or a workout.
It should also be noted that this supplement is best taken on an empty stomach, followed by aerobic activity. This allows you to get the full benefit of the appetite suppression effects. It will also likely help you to perform better and have increased stamina when taken before a workout.
