Yohimbe Herb Health Benefits

Yohimbe also known as yohimbehe, and yohimbine is derived from the bark of a West African evergreen tree. Yohimbine is an active chemical (an alkaloid) found in the bark and is cultivated into supplement form.


Yohimbe bark extracts are widely promoted online and in health food stores as a natural aphrodisiac to increase libido and treat erectile dysfunction.


However, there is no evidence to show that the herbal supplements work.


Yohimbe can cause dilation of peripheral blood vessels along with central nervous system stimulation.


Therefore, the drug has been investigated for erectile dysfunction. Clinical studies do suggest that yohimbe may be effective in the treatment of male organic impotence.


The bark has been smoked as a hallucinogen and has been used in traditional medicine to treat angina and hypertension.


But it must be noted that it may be dangerous if used with anti-depressants, sedatives, antihistamines, caffeine, or amphetamines.

It may have other side effects such as racing heart rate, irritability, headache, nausea, sweating, dizziness and frequent urination.


Yohimbe is also sold as a muscle building natural version of anabolic steroids.


However, its action is apparently unrelated to the body’s production of testosterone, which means it probably is of little value in building bigger muscles.


For use take a quarter or half a yohimbe capsule two to three hours before intimacy.


If you are sensitive to herbs, take less than half. This herbal product is not recommended for anyone with heart problems or who has heart irregularities.


Yohimbe herb is not recommended if you have severe kidney or liver disease.


Not to be taken if you are currently on blood thinning medication, and it is not recommended to be taken for extended periods of time.


Anyone with a heart condition, kidney disease, glaucoma or history of gastric or duodenal ulcers should avoid it.
