Yohimbe is a tree native to Africa whose bark contains a chemical called yohimbine. Yohimbine is one of the most effective erectile treatment drugs on the market but can have negative side effects. Yohimbe is probably one of the most commonly used ingredients in over-the-counter male enhancement supplements.
How Can Yohimbe Help To Enlarge The Penis?
Many clinical studies have shown that yohimbe is an effective aphrodisiac, sexual stimulant, and can be used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. This implies that yohimbe has the capability of increasing the amount of blood flow to the penis which is important for hyper-engorging and nutrient supply.
Problems With Yohimbe
Although yohimbe is effective for increasing blood flow to the penis, there are many potential negative side effects, some of which include increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, insomnia, headaches, skin flushing, and more. The other problem with yohimbe as a penis enlargement supplement is that the proper dosage for effective treatment is on a thin line between too much (causing negative side effects) and too little (causing no effect on the penis). Although it is safer to be on the ‘not enough’ side, it may still be better than taking nothing, especially in addition with other penis enlargement supplements.
Do We Recommend Taking Yohimbe?
We would only recommend yohimbe to relatively healthy people, as long as you follow the strict guidelines. With that said, we should also advise you to speak with your healthcare practitioner before use, especially if you have pre-existing conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, or insomnia.
As a side note, I have personally taken yohimbine up to 50mg and experienced no side effect other than rock solid erections. I am 170 pounds, very good shape (6% body fat), and eat healthy.
Anywhere from 5-50 mg of yohimbine can be effective. Up to 1000 mg of yohimbe can be taken. Take at least one week off from yohimbe after each month of use.
Studies On Yohimbe
Pharmacological and physiological aspects of sexual exhaustion in male rats
Departamento de Farmacobiología, Cinvestav, Mexico
The present article reviews the current findings on the interesting phenomenon of sexual satiety. Knut Larsson in 1956 reported on the development of sexual exhaustion in the male rat after repeated copulation. We have studied the process and found the following results. (1) One day after 4 hours of ad libitum copulation, two-thirds of the population showed complete inhibition of sexual behavior, while the other third displayed a single ejaculatory series from which they did not recover. (2) Several pharmacological treatments, including 8-OH-DPAT, yohimbine, naloxone and naltrexone, reverse this sexual satiety, indicating that the noradrenergic, serotonergic and opiate systems are involved in this process. Indeed, direct neurochemical determinations showed changes in various neurotransmitters during sexual exhaustion. (3) Given enough stimulation, by changing the stimulus female, sexual satiety was prevented, suggesting that there are motivational components of the sexual inhibition that characterizes sexual exhaustion. (4) The GABA antagonist bicuculline, or the electrical stimulation of the medial preoptic area, did not reverse sexual exhaustion. These data suggest, on the one hand, that sexual exhaustion and the postejaculatory interval (which is shortened by bicuculline administration) are not mediated by similar mechanisms and, on the other, that the medial preoptic area does not regulate sexual satiety. (5) The androgen receptor density in brain areas closely related to the expression of masculine sexual behavior, such as the medial preoptic nucleus, was drastically reduced in sexually exhausted animals. Such reduction was specific to certain brain areas and was not related to changes in the levels of androgens. These results suggest that changes in brain androgen receptors account for the inhibition of sexual behavior present during sexual exhaustion. (6) The recovery process of sexual satiety after 4 hours of ad libitum copulation reveals that, after 4 days, only 63% of the males are able to show sexual behavior while after 7 days all animals display copulatory activity.
Conclusion – Yohimbe can be an effective male enhancement supplement.
