Yohimbe – 1KG
Yohimbe is a natural herbal supplement that is strongly associated with anti-aging effects. Yohimbe has a long history of use in Western Africa, and is still widely used there today, to treat a variety of sexual disorders, including low libido and erectile dysfunction.
Medically, yohimbine is a pre-synaptic alpha-2-adrenergic blocking agent, which is capable of increasing sympathetic nervous system activity, thus resulting in increased amounts of epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) and norepinephrine in the blood stream.
The main effects epinephrine and norepinephrine have on the body include increasing blood pressure and heart rate. Yohimbe is also often used for weight loss, although the evidence supporting this claim is inconclusive.
Yohimbe is an evergreen tree native to central and western Africa. It has a compound called yohimbine in its bark. The bark has been used traditionally as an aphrodisiac and to enhance sexual performance.
Yohimbe is promoted for erectile dysfunction, athletic performance, weight loss, angina (chest pain caused by not enough blood flow to the heart), high blood pressure, diabetic neuropathy, and more.
Yohimbine hydrochloride, a standardized form of yohimbine, is available in the United States as a prescription drug. This is a different product than dietary supplements made from the bark of the tree.
