Yohimbine is a sex herb that is actually available in the United States as a prescription
medecine for impotence (erectile dysfunction). It is said to be very effective in some patients but not all.
The evergreen yohimbine tree is native to West Africa and is said to be one of the few genuine aphrodisiacs in
nature. It is also found naturally in Indian Snakeroot (Rauwolfia serpentina).
The main active chemical present in yohimbe bark is yohimbine HCl (indole alkaloid). The levels of yohimbine that
are present in yohimbe bark extract vary widely and are often very low.
Yohimbine works on improving the body's sexual function by dilating the blood vessels of the skin and the mucous
membranes and bringing blood close to the surface of the sex hence improving penile function. It also increases the
volume of ejaculated semen in dogs.
It favourably affects both psychological and physical impotence and has even been used to counteract the loss of
libido and other side effects associated with the use of anti depressants (SSRIs).
Yohimbine is also reputed to help you lose weight by stimulating fat loss and has been used as a weight loss aid
although there is not a a lot of evidence to support this.
It is generally the pharmaceutical derivative(which is the prescription drug) that has shown results
but most Yohimbine herbal supplements display little of this power as they are not concentrated enough.
However no form of Yohimbine should be considered a first choice solution to erection problems as it is
associated with numerous side effects and interactions.
Yohimbine should be used with great caution if you have hypertension, heart disease, diabetes,
a thyroid disorder, kidney disease, mental illness or you are taking any other medication and be discussed with
your practitioner first.
My advice would be to avoid Yohimbine if possible because it is associated with serious side effects and can
even be dangerous if used in excessive quantities. If you do decide to use it, do so with the advice and
supervision of your doctor.
