What is Yohimbe?

Yohimbe is a natural herb that is derived from the inner bark of the Yohimbe tree native to Africa. Known worldwide as a powerful aphrodisiac, Yohimbe extract has been used as a tonic to enhance sexual performance, boost libido, and fight against symptoms associated with erectile dysfunction. Long ago, West African tribes used Yohimbe tea to help treat fever and cough, as well as improve heart health and immunity.

Yohimbe 500mg extract has become a popular supplement for men and women for years. When taken, the body converts it to yohimbine (alkaloid) and assimilates it into the bloodstream. Once it is in the system, the compounds act as a vasodilator that expands the blood vessels, allowing for better blood flow to extremities, including the genitals.

Why should you take Yohimbe extract?

Not only its effects have ignited its popularity as an aphrodisiac, but research also believes that this natural herb contains very effective antioxidant potential that can fight free radicals and strengthen immunity. Yohimbe extract focuses on increasing blood flow, boosting libido, improving sexual performance, and assisting with weight-loss efforts.

Which scientific studies give evidence to support this?

According to a study that was conducted through the Centre for Sexual Function, researchers found that Yohimbine (main compound in Yohimbe) may be an effective remedy to help individuals with erectile dysfunction. The study observed 18 non-smoking men with erectile dysfunction. Researchers measured nocturnal penile tumescence (erection while asleep) with the RigiScan monitor, hormone profiles, a questionnaire, and clinical responses.

The researchers found that 9 out of 18 men were successful in completing sexual intercourse in 75% of the attempts. In conclusion, men with less severe erectile dysfunction were more responsive to the Yohimbine treatment; therefore Yohimbe extract may be an effective alternative remedy to assist men with erectile dysfunction symptoms.(1)

Yohimbine is an active ingredient in many bodybuilding supplements, and it is presumed that Yohimbe extract improves blood flow, which increases energy levels. As energy levels rise, this boosts workout and bodybuilding performance that naturally burns fat and promotes lean muscle mass.

How much should be taken? Are there any side effects?

People taking Yohimbe should avoid foods containing tyramine, such as cheese, red wine, or liver, also antidepressants such as Prozac should not be taken in combination with Yohimbe, unless approved by your physician.
