Yohimbine Hydrochloride

What condition does Yohimbine Hydrochloride treat?

Yohimbe is the name of an evergreen tree that is found in parts of central and western Africa. The bark of Yohimbe contains a chemical called Yohimbine Hydrochloride. This is a form of Yohimbine that is commonly used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Yohimbine Hydrochloride can also be used for weight loss.

How does Yohimbine Hydrochloride work?

For erectile dysfunction, Yohimbine Hydrochloride blocks the receptors in the body called alpha-2 adrenergic receptors. These receptors have an important role in inhibiting erections. This is thought to help alleviate erectile dysfunction. It is by blocking the receptors that are responsible for preventing erections. Yohimbine Hydrochloride also promotes the release of nitric oxide. This could lead to the dilation of blood vessels and an increase in blood flow to sexual organs. 

For weight loss, this medication can promote more targeted fat loss. This is because the areas that have higher amounts of stubborn body fat tend to also have higher levels of alpha-2 adrenergic receptors. This higher concentration of alpha-2 adrenergic receptors makes that fat more resistant to mobilization. Yohimbine Hydrochloride binds to them more easily and blocks the receptors from catecholamines. When catecholamines can’t bind to these receptors, it becomes easier to lose that last bit of stubborn fat. Catecholamines are hormones made by your adrenal glands. It plays a significant role in the fight o9r flight response is adrenaline or noradrenaline.
