Yohimbe, aka Pausinystalia Yohimbe, is taken by mouth to arouse sexual excitement, for erectile dysfunction (ED,) sexual problems caused by medications for depression called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs,) and general sexual problems in both men and women. It is also used for athletic performance, exhaustion, checst pain, high blood pressure, and low blood pressure that occurs when standing up, diabetic nerve pain, and for depression along with certain other medications. Seek medical attention in an emergency room if the erection lasts longer than four hours. Yohimbe is a vasodilator, which means it expands blood vessels. This allows for easier blood flow and superior circulation. Lower doses of Yohimbe can also lower blood pressure and increase heart rate, which can help your body deliver nutrients to working cells. Yohimbe is also a popular ingredient in weight-loss and fat-burning products.
