Recomended Uses as a dietary supplement for the folliwng ailments:.
Yohimbe is an herbal supplement. It has a long history of use in West African traditional medicine to improve sexual performance.
More recently, yohimbe has been sold as a dietary supplement with a wide variety of common uses. These range from treating medical conditions like erectile dysfunction to aiding in weight loss.
The supplement is derived from the bark of an evergreen tree found in western and central Africa called the Pausinystalia johimbe.
It is often sold in capsule or tablet form and marketed as yohimbe bark extract or yohimbine, the active ingredient in yohimbe bark. Many believe that yohimbine works by blocking receptors in the body called alpha-2 adrenergic receptors (1).
These receptors play an important role in inhibiting erections. Therefore, yohimbine is thought to help alleviate erectile dysfunction by blocking the receptors responsible for preventing erections (2).
Yohimbine may also promote the release of nitric oxide. This could lead to the dilation of blood vessels and an increase in blood flow to sexual organs (2).

Yohimbe May Help Erectile Dysfunction
Yohimbe is most well known for its claimed abilities to alleviate erectile dysfunction, but many wonder if there is any evidence behind this claim.
A review of seven controlled studies indicates there may be truth to the claim.
In this study, yohimbine was clearly more effective than a placebo in treating erectile dysfunction (3).
One of the studies in the review examined the effects of yohimbine on 82 male veterans with erectile dysfunction (4).
After a month of treatment, 34% of patients taking yohimbine experienced at least a partial improvement in symptoms, while 20% of patients reported full and sustained erections. Only 7% of veterans taking a placebo reported any improvements.
