What is it?
Yohimbe is an herbal extract from the bark of the African tree Pausinystalia yohimbe. Yohimbe contains the alkaloid yohimbine, which is considered to be the active ingredient.

Where is it from?
Yohimbe is a tree that grows throughout the African nations of Cameroon, Gabon, and Zaire. For centuries, natives from these areas have ingested both the crude bark and purified compound as a tonic to enhance sexual prowess, and as an aphrodisiac.

What is it used for?
Yohimbe is a popular hormone stimulant among men seeking sexual enhancement and improved overall vitality. It blocks alpha-2 receptors to increase neurotransmitter activity and stimulates blood flow to sexual organs in the male body. Yohimbe bark stimulates chemical reactions in the body that may aid in psychogenic cases of impotence due to fatigue, tension, and stress.
