Yohimbine is a natural substance that is obtained from the bark of the Pausinystalia yohimbe tree growing in Africa. It can also be obtained by chemical reaction as yohimbine hydrochloride. It has a stimulating effect, recognized as an aphrodisiac, affects sex drive and potency, is an effective form of fat burner. In European Union countries, due to the possible side effects, it is prohibited to eat, but there are many specifics available on the market which contain it as its ingredient. Today, we would like to see exactly how yohimbine works, because of its effect on fat burning. What does it make? How it works? What does it lead to?
Action of yohimbine in the human body
Yohimbine on the one hand blocks a2-adrenergic receptors, and on the other, it increases the release of noradrenaline. But what does it actually mean? Adrenaline, as well as norepinephrine, act on various tissues and organs via A1 and A2, B1, B2 and B3 adrenergic receptors. Activation of B - adrenergic receptors leads to stimulation of the enzyme, which is adenylate cyclase, which in turn leads to an increase in the level of cyclic AMP in the cells, thereby leading to the release and burning of fat. And everything would be beautiful, if not for the fact that catecholamines act on the a-adrenergic receptors, leading to a decrease in cAMP, while hindering fat burning. Many people wonder why it is so difficult to burn fat from the lower parts of the abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Truth? And all this is related to the A2 adrenergic receptors, which are in these areas. The use of yohimbine blocks A2 receptors that interfere with fat burning, and adrenaline and norepinephrine may increase the stimulation of beta receptors, further improving fat burning.
Side effects of yohimbine
Everything seems to be perfect to be able to get the coveted figure, but Yohimbine brings many side effects that you have to be aware of if you want to put up with it. First, it lowers or increases blood pressure, causes heart disorder, headaches, or general irritability. It leads to nausea, problems with the intestines and stomach. May cause panic and anxiety. Also affects the kidneys, liver and heart. It impedes the action of many drugs, especially antidepressants, hypotensive, antiallergic and sedative.
Plantal alkaloid or hydrochloride?
You can choose the natural form of yohimbine or vegetable alkaloids as well as opt for its chemical form, i.e. hydrochloride. Which one to choose? Which will turn out to be a better solution? For many this may be a surprise, but a much better form is hydrochloride, because here we know how much yohimbine is in the product, and in the case of a natural form, we are not always able to determine its quantity, thereofre the possible side effects can be definitely greater. It is not difficult to overdose, so extreme caution should be exercised if we want to achieve the desired effects in the form of a slim figure.
