Yohimbe is the name of an evergreen tree that is found in Zaire, Cameroon, and Gabon. The bark of yohimbe contains a chemical called yohimbine, which is used to make a herbal medicine.
Yohimbe is used to arouse sexual excitement, for erectile dysfunction, sexual problems caused by medications for depression called selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and general sexual problems in both men and women. It is also used for athletic performance, weight loss, exhaustion, chest pain, high blood pressure, low blood pressure that occurs when standing up, diabetic nerve pain, and for depression along with certain other medications.
Yohimbe contains a chemical called yohimbine which can increase blood flow and nerve impulses to the penis or vagina. It also helps counteract the sexual side effects of certain medications used for depression.
Please note this herbal powder should be used carefully – it can cause tachycardia and hyper-tension if dosed improperly and should generally only be used under the supervision of a practitioner knowledgeable in herbal medicine. Not to be used in pregnancy or whilst breast-feeding. Yohimbe may interfere with other drugs and should not be used with certain medical conditions. Please check prior to use.
Suggested use: the recommended dose or for problems with sexual performance: 15-30 mg daily of yohimbine, the active ingredient in yohimbe.
