  • Yohimbine Safety – What does the science say?

    Yohimbine is an energizing and metabolism-boosting supplement derived from the Yohimbe tree. It increases levels of adrenaline in the body and inhibits an enzyme in cells that normally suppresses fat burning. It is often used as an aphrodisiac because of its effects on vitality. It is also sometimes used as a wakefulness-promoting supplement.[1]

    Clinical studies have found that Yohimbine is effective as an aphrodisiac and energizing supplement that is generally well-tolerated. [2] [3] The serving size used in studies is generally around 5 mg, taken once to four times daily. At this amount, the benefits of Yohimbine generally outweigh the mild side effects experienced by some participants.[4]

    However, when taken at larger servings, Yohimbine presents a number of concerning side effects. Not only this, but it has been found to interact with numerous medications and to aggravate a number of medical conditions. As a result, it is important that anybody using Yohimbine be aware of the potential adverse effects associated with it.
