Yohimbe bark Pausinystalia Yohimbe
Today Yohimbe is used to treat impotence and enhance sexual performance. Some herbalists believe it is more effective than the purified drug yohimbine, because of its unidentified active ingredients. Studies have shown that a Yohimbe bark extract, increases blood flow to the penis and may also increase the amount of a known substance called, cGMP, which is needed to stimulate and maintain an erection. A clinical study in Rhode Island tested the active ingredient in Yohimbe on a group of men who had experienced chronic sexual dysfunction. For those who had been impotent for less than two years and taking a moderate dosage over a period of one month, experienced an improvement rate of 81%. Two out of three patients who had previously experienced partial erections only, and had failed in normal intercourse at least 50% of the time, reported fuller and more lasting erections, leading to consistently successful sex and lovemaking.
Yohimbe has also been shown to elevate mood, reduce anxiety and depression, prevent heart attacks, and help build muscles. It has also been recommended in small doses for use as an anti-depressant.
Many women have reported significant arousal and increased pleasurable sensations, and it has been helpful in cases of frigidity and lack of sexual interest.
