Why Yohimbe?

Weight Loss Efforts

While research is still being carried out, patients have found that Yohimbe combined with daily exercise has increased their weight-loss efforts and they have seen a drop in stored fat, specifically around the abdomen, breasts, buttocks, and thighs.

A study was conducted among twenty female obese outpatients for six weeks. For the first three weeks the women were given instructions to only consume 1,000 calories per day. After the first three weeks, ten individuals were given yohimbine and the other ten individuals were given a placebo. The study was conducted for another three weeks, while still maintaining the 1,000 calorie per day diet.

At the end of the study, researchers found that the ten women who were given yohimbine had significant weight-loss, around 3.55 kilograms on average, versus the placebo group, which lost on average 2.21 kilograms.(1)
