Yohimbe, and its subset yohimbine, are fat-burning compounds, primarily used to lose fat during short term fasting.
Yohimbine is also an aphrodisiac and can aid erectile dysfunction. It is also a general stimulant.
Yohimbine works by increasing adrenaline levels in the body, as well as inhibiting a regulatory process in fat cells, which normally suppresses fat burning.
The effects of yohimbine are partially negated by food intake, which is why it is often taken in a fasted state.
Note; dosage information is only for scientific reference purposes. SARMs Central, does not condone the human consumption or use of this substance outside of a controlled scientific environment (i.e. a lab).
Dosages of 0.2mg/kg bodyweight have been successfully used to increase fat burning without significant implications on cardiovascular parameters like heart rate and blood pressure. This results in a dosage of:
- 14 mg for a 150lb person
- 18 mg for a 200lb person
- 22 mg for a 250lb person
Supplementation is most effective between meals or during short term fasting.
