Subject: YOHIMBE - SOME FACTS
Well guys, lots of questions about Yohimbe. Thought I'd just post a small article about it from personal and customer experience.
Yohimbe contains an active alkaloid called yohimbine bitartrate. This effects the nerbes and changes blood flow regulators in the genital area. And guess what? Produces the same effect in women.
Most men try the encapsulated herb with limited success. To draw out the alkaloids you have to simmer the herb for about 20 minutes in water with some form of citric acid, like lemon juice added. Strain out the herb and take only a teaspoon of this decoction at a time, perhaps 30 to 60 minutes before you would like the effects to reveal themselves. Some men will achieve a lasting erection for hours, others may just feel aroused or sensitive in the genital area and find that they are ready to another orgasm within minutes of the first, and in still others, it may have absolutely no effect.
WARNING WARNING WARNING
STAY COMPLETELY AWAY FROM YOHIMBE IF YOU HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, DIABETES, GLAUCOMA OR HISTORY OF MENTAL DISTURBANCE, PARTICULARLY BIPOLAR DISORDERS.
YOHIMBE WILL INCREASE BLOOD PRESSURE AND HIGH RATE.
I've had this experience personally. Within 10 minutes, my heart rate jumped to 110 beats per minute and remained that way for hours. Scaring oneself by suspecting an imminent stroke or heart attack does absolutely nothing for the sex drive.
USE THIS HERB WITH CAUTION!!!!!!
