Efficacy of Yohimbe

Yohimbe extract is a beneficial natural substance derived from the inner bark of the Yohimbe tree in South Africa that has been shown to help expand blood vessels, promote sexual performance, boost libido, fight against symptoms of erectile dysfunction, and stimulate weight-loss efforts.

While studies are still being conducted, researchers believe that Yohimbe extract may even help individuals who suffer from episodes of exhaustion and symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and stress.

What Does Yohimbe Extract Supplement Do?

Yohimbe extract utilises its compound, alkaloid yohimbine, to expand the blood vessels throughout the body, but mainly in the extremities, such as the genitals. The alkaloid yohimbine chemical naturally promotes a feeling of sexual interest, improves sexual performance, and helps burn stubborn fat.

Yohimbe Used to Reduce Erectile Dysfunction

Yohimbine extract in the Yohimbe supplement can help relieve symptoms associated with erectile dysfunction. Through several trials, researchers were able to determine that Yohimbe extract is superior to placebo in the treatment of erectile dysfunction(1), making it an effective therapeutic alternative to prescribed medications that may improve sexual performance, as well as libido.
