Yohimbine is an indole alkaloid derived from the bark of the Pausinystalia yohimbe tree in Central Africa. Up until the invention of Viagra, yohimbine was the primary treatment for sexual dysfunction in men. It is considered a stimulant, an aphrodisiac, and a MAO inhibitor as well as antagonist of the Alpha 2 adrenoceptor. It is a prescription medicine by the name Yohimbine HCl, and it causes ADHD like symptoms in users. it is important to note that while the terms yohimbine,yohimbine hydrochloride, Alpha yohimbine, and yohimbe bark are related, they are not interchangeable.
Many supplement companies claim they have Yohimbine on the label, but if you look closely its just the bark. This has a mixture of conflicting versions of Yohimbine, not the medicine Yohimbine HCl which we will discuss here as thats the main one used in GOOD supplements. 850mg of yohimbine bark has only 5 mg of Yohimbine HCl in it! You will see on many supplements that claim to have yohimbine, its only 50mg of BARK not HCl.
Who Is It Prescribed To?
Main prescription of yohimbine is for people with dry mouth from tricyclic antidepressants (norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors) and for the sexual dysfunction of SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) antidepressants like Prozac and Paxil. The National Institute of Health (NIH) has declared that there is a sufficient amount of evidence that yohimbine effectively treats Erectile Dysfunction, Orgasmic Dysfunction in men, and Hypoactive Desire Disorder in women (low sex drive).
In english; Yohimbine increases sex drive in women, increases the hardness of erections, and helps guys reach orgasm if they can’t normally. I would like to point out what it does in a man it would do in a woman and vice versa. We have the same basic parts, just men’s are outside and womens are inside. So It should enhance the pleasure of sex for women and the drive for sex in men as well.
How It Works
Yohimbine blocks the alpha 2 receptor but not the alpha 1 receptor. This results in more Nitric Oxide (NO-) to be released which allows the penis to fill with more blood faster thus becoming harder and larger. Then the yohimbine causes more norepinephrine to bind to the vessels leading out of the corpus cavernosa causing them to close, trapping the blood in the now swollen penis. This means your erection lasts longer.
In English: Yohimbine causes more Nitric Oxide to be released causing your penis to get bigger and harder and more adrenaline to be released allowing your penis to stay hard longer.
Broken down Barney style: Yohimbine makes your penis bigger and harder for a longer amount of time than otherwise possible. It also makes vaginas more sensitive.
Rise and Swell Is a product I designed to increase the bodies ability to produce testosterone naturally, and I included yohimbine with it to make it the perfect male sexual enhancer. Between the testosterone boosting effects of DAA and vitamin D3, the NO producing effects of Agmatine Sulfate, and the erection enhancing effects of Yohimbine, Rise and Swell is the perfect male sexual enhancer. I even increased the bodies testosterone receptors with L-carnitine!
Yohimbine is well known for its fat loss abilities. Because it binds to the alpha 2 receptor it is particularly useful for people who care what they look like! The reason is many people have stubborn fat. Places on their body fat won’t mobilize from. On men its the midsection and around the organs, the life threatening visceral fat. In women its the butt and thighs and back of the arms.
Use of yohimbine WHILE losing fat will make these stubborn fat areas give up that fat! It DOES NOT burn fat directly, only tells your body its “OK” to lose fat from those stubborn fat locations.
One way to get yohimbine to the target fat is topical application. By applying yohimbine to the skin over the fat you want to burn with a carrier vehicle and ingredients that bring blood flow to the skin you can get the yohimbine into the fat cells you want targeted for destruction without having it act on all the Alpha 2 receptors in the body the way a pill would.
Lipotherm Y Is a product which does that, a topical yohimbine that helps your normal diet and training burn fat from the specific places you want to burn fat from when you exercise.
This of course does not hit the visceral fat in men, To do that you would either need to take Rise and Swell First thing in the morning or Wyked 2.1 pre workout
You probably know someone who claims that they don’t use Yohimbine because its dangerous. This person is full of shit.
The doses used in sports performance products are never over 5 mg. But the normal prescription dose for Yohimbine is 15-30mg!! The side effects these hypochondriacs claim to have are if someone has over 40-100 mg. There are allergic reactions which are possible at low doses, but that occurs with all substances, youre just as likely to drop dead from an allergic reaction to a popsicle as you are to yohimbine. Think of all the people you know who whine and complain. Do you take them seriously? Then don’t take phobic people seriously either. If they really had a bad reaction they wouldn’t be here to whine would they? Usually people are just making stuff up to get attention for sounding like the ‘educated consumer’.
However right I feel I am, I’m only one doctor. Here are what my colleagues say:
“Hallucinations or paralysis may occur with doses greater than 40 mg. Higher doses of oral yohimbine may create numerous side effects, such as rapid heart rate, overstimulation, anomalous blood pressure, cold sweating, and insomnia. In rare cases panic attacks,hallucinations, headaches, dizziness, and skin flushing have occurred”.
These are all symptoms of anxiety and stress. If a person with mental illness, heart issues, or blood pressure issues took yohimbine then the dose that would be necessary to cause these side effects would be lower than the 40 mg listed. This is how people get these reactions with low (5 mg) doses: they already had the problem, but the yohimbine made it worse fast enough to be noticeable. Prior to taking yohimbine they were just “used to it” since it was always there. This is for anxiety, dizziness and all vague subjective symptoms that a person cant prove they have since there is not real symptoms, just their feelings.
Please keep in mind these are already depressed people who are prescribed this on OTHER MEDICATIONS. Remember how its a MAO inhibitor? How many drug commercials have you seen where they have a warning “Do not take if you’re on an MAO inhibitor”? A lot right? So it stops other drugs from breaking down increasing the amount of time they are active in your body. One of the drugs this does this to is our fat burning friend Synephrine. Synephrine is totally harmless by itself, but with yohimbine the fat loss possibilities are endless!! The Synephrine Burns the Fat from the location the yohimbine designates and the L-carnitine transports it to the mitochondria for fat Burning. T2 increases this fat burning.
So using Synephrine, L-carnitine, Yohimbine and T2 together is the ULTIMATE in fat loss. To achieve this men should use Rise and Swell + Rezolution V2 + T2, while women can use T2 + Rezolution V2 + Wyked 2.1.
