Yohimbine: What Does It Do?
So how did a failed sexual health aid become a wildly popular weight loss supplement? That is what we are going to delve into in this article. So the million dollar question is, what in the heck is yohimbine and what the heck does it do? So if it was the end all be all supplement for erections, how does it aid in fat loss. Yohimbe is a diminutive evergreen tree found in Africa, and it’s scientific name is Pausinystalia yohimbe. Chemically, Yohimbe bark contains the substance yohimbine, plus other similar compounds called indole alkaloids. Medically, yohimbine is a pre-synaptic alpha-2-adrenergic blocking agent, often referred to as an alpha 2-adrenergic antagonist. This action increases sympathetic nervous system activity, and can result in increasing the amounts of epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) and norepinephrine in the blood stream. The SNS (sympathetic nervous system) is involved in controlling the body’s response to stress, as well as triggering the fight or flight response. So when the body is stressed, it dumps fats into the blood to stave off an attack from a predator(think back to our cave man existence).
Huh? What Does The Paragraph Above Mean?
So now that we bored you to tears with science, lets break this down into laymen’s terms. Yohimbine is what I describe as a “sleezy door to door salesman” that you can’t get off your porch. It is like the “shoving a foot in your door” trick. The aplha-2 adrenergic receptor is the door and yohimbine is the foot so to speak. So by doing this, you allow “adrenaline(catch all phrase for the catecholamines epinepherine and norepinepherine)” to do it’s work. Normally the areas of the lower back and abs in men and the hips and thighs in women make it hard to lose fat because these areas contain aplha-2 adrenergic receptors. These are stubborn about releasing fat from the cells. Yohimbine blokcs their activity(see foot in door analogy). This allows “adrenaline” to mobilize fat from these areas, thus ridding you of your stubborn fats stores. The best delivery is topical so it goes transdermally right to the area it needs to do its work. If you ingest it orally, you not only get dergradation via the GI tract, you have to rely on a global effect versus the pinpoint accuracy of a transdermal delivery system. This is what makes Lipotherm Y such an effective fat mobilizer. Get yours today so you can start ripping off that stubborn body fat ASAP!
