What is Yohimbine ?
Yohimbe Bark has been mainly used as an aphrodisiac that increases libido in both men and women. It is thought to encourage blood flow to the penis and stimulate the pelvic nerve ganglia, enhancing sensations and helping men with erection problems; and as a stimulant to the general nervous system, it is regarded as an herbal treatment for impotence brought on by fatigue, tension and stress. Yohimbe Bark contains the alkaloid, yohimbine, a compound that is also included in pharmaceuticals that treat erectile dysfunction, improving both the quality and staying power of erections by increasing the production of the norepinephrine that is essential for the formation of erections.
It is said that Yohimbine is an alpha2-adrenoreceptor antagonist that increases the plasma levels of noradrenaline by increasing noradrenaline release from the sympathetic nervous system. Blocking of alpha2-adrenoreceptors results in increased blood supply to cavernous body tissue. Aphrodisiac activity of yohimbine may be caused by its dilation effect on the genital blood vessels and the enhancement of sensation to genital tissue and an increased reflex excitability in the sacral region. In addition, it seems to help older men by reducing the effects that ageing may produce on hormones that cause constriction of blood vessels. Recent research claims that diabetic-related impotence may also be helped with the use of Yohimbe.
Common names: Yohimbe also is known as yohimbehe, and yohimbine. This tree grows throughout the African nations of Cameroon, Gabon, and Zaire. The alkaloid yohimbine also is obtained from Aspidosperma quebracho blanco and Rauwolfia serpentina.
What is it used for?
The bark of the West African yohimbe tree is rich in the alkaloid yohimbine, and both the crude bark and purified compound long have been hailed as aphrodisiacs. The bark has been smoked as a hallucinogen and has been used in traditional medicine to treat angina and hypertension.
Today, yohimbe is being investigated for the treatment of organic impotence, in particular patients with diabetes, and for use as an aphrodisiac. 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.
