The main active ingredient of Yohimbine hydrochloride is an extract obtained from the bark of the evergreen tree Corynanthe yohimbe, which grows in West Africa, where it is traditionally used as an aphrodisiac. In Europe, scientific interest in the erectile properties of this plant arose as early as in the 1900s, because yohimbe demonstrated a strong aphrodisiacal effect in animals and humans.
The drug is both an alkaloid and an aphrodisiac, which ensures its wide spectrum of action: treatment of erectile dysfunctions, fat burning, and a general stimulating effect on the body. The effect of Yohimbine is based on the stimulation of adrenaline production and the suppression of regulatory processes in cells, which under normal conditions inhibit the process of lipolysis. Also, its effect is due to the excitation of the nerve endings of the spinal cord, which are responsible for the sexual arousal and increased blood circulation in the pelvic area. The pills help:
- Stimulate the work of the nervous system, which positively affects the attraction to women;
- Improve the filling of the penis with blood, which strengthens the erection and prolongs sexual intercourse;
- Improve the psycho-emotional background, which has a direct effect on the sexual sensations, and help to eliminate a feeling of discomfort, insecurity, stiffness and fear;
- Increase blood pressure and stimulate the work of the heart muscle
The drug is often taken by athletes to normalize the cardiovascular system, reduce body weight and increase endurance, that is why it is often included in the list of dietary supplements for sports nutrition. Many companies that sell bodybuilding products provide supplements with yohimbine for the local reduction of fat tissue. This is due to the ability of the active component to block alpha-adrenergic receptors. As a rule, the reviews are positive, noting a pronounced fat-burning effect, especially in combination with a smart diet regime and an active lifestyle. However, as a prescription medicine, doctors recommend using Yohimbine hydrochloride only for the purposes indicated in the official description.
