A Closer Look At Yohimbe

Aug 17, 2007
As a bodybuilder I have probably tried just about every natural testosterone enhancing product available for enhancing muscle growth, the side effect of many of these products is enhanced sexual performance as well. There are also some side effects that are unwanted, such as heart palpitations and insomnia. In this article I want to look closer at Yohimbe.

Yohimbe has been used for years by bodybuilders for muscular enhancement but it has also been used as a sexual enhancement due to its inherent ability to produce erections, in fact it is probably the best product available for that.

Yohimbe is named for the bark of the Yohimbe tree but the actual active ingredient is an alkaloid called yohimbine which is responsible for the actual effects. You get the benefits of Yohimbe from eating a significant amount of the bark or from the prescription medicine named after yohimbine.

Unfortunately, the very qualities that make yohimbine such a strong supplement for sexual enhancement also contribute to its weaknesses. Yohimbine does not affect only the sexual and muscular systems of the body, the effects are systemic for the entire body resulting in irregular heartbeat and insomnia for as long as 30 hours after even using just a small amount of yohimbine making it worse for sleep than 20 cups of coffee.

Never happened to you? That's probably because the majority of Yohimbe supplements on the market today are comprised of tiny amounts of the yohimbine alkaloid and are therefore devoid of any benefits.

Authentic Yohimbe bark is acquired in large quantities by the pharmaceutical industry and is used to make prescription yohimbine tablets. The Yohimbe supplements sold in most health food stores contain almost no yohimbine.

Due to the popularity of the product the Yohimbe plants are becoming more and more rare and hard to find. The reason for this is mainly due to the fact that the harvesting of the bark kills the tree and it takes over 10 years for a tree to grow to harvesting size.

If you are looking for true yohimbine be sure that it is pharmaceutical grade.
