WHAT IS YOHIMBE BARK EXTRACT?

Yohimbe [yoh-heem-buh] powder is extracted from an evergreen tree native to central and western Africa, where it has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. The tree bark contains a chemical compound called yohimbine (hence its name), which researchers believe gives it several health benefits. From protecting your heart to boosting your mood and your energy levels, yohimbe is a master of multi-tasking.

GET HAPPY!

Studies suggest compounds in yohimbe bark work as alpha 2-antagonists, meaning they interact with the nervous system and increase adrenaline, boosting alertness, energy, and even mood. One study found that yohimbine could be as effective as anti-depressants in improving levels of serotonin (the feel-good chemical) in the brain. (x)
Because yohimbe affects your mood, be sure to talk to your doctor before taking it if you're already on mood-altering medications.

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

If you take yohimbe before you head to the gym,  you might notice an improvement in your workout performance. That's because, like caffeine, yohimbe acts as a stimulant, improving your energy, concentration, and focus. (x)  This means that yohimbe could help you work out harder and longer for  more noticeable results. Be careful not to take too much: yohimbe has been known to cause caffeine-like jitters when taken in excess.

WEIGHT LOSS

Yohimbe has thermogenic properties, meaning it heats up the body and could even burn fat. One study examined its effects on professional soccer players and noted significant decreases in the athletes' body fat percentages after they took yohimbe for 21 days. (x) Another study found that yohimbe promoted weight loss in overweight women eating a low-energy diet. (x)

Though research is ongoing, scientists believe yohimbe's weight management properties stem from its ability to curb appetite and improve lipolysis, the process by which the body breaks down fat. (x)

BLOOD PRESSURE MANAGEMENT

Yohimbine may be able to increase blood pressure, potentially benefiting men's sexual health and alleviating symptoms associated with diabetic nerve problems. It may also relieve dizziness associated with chronic low blood pressure.

If you have a history of blood pressure or heart problems, talk to your doctor before taking this supplement. And skip the caffeine when you take yohimbe--because they're both stimulants, taking them together could cause side effects like nervousness, rapid heart rate, headaches, and stomach upset.
