question about yohimbe
I recently purchased a bottle of Yohimbe caps. Once I got home studied the bottle more closely and noticed a warning that this product is not for use by females. The serving size is 1 capsule which contains 1,111mg Yohimbe extract (Pausinystalia yohimbe bark standardized to 2% yohimbine). Why is this warning on the label? I am a 27yr old female that weighs 130lbs with around 14% bodyfat. I had prevoioulsy heard many great things about this supplement for use in fat loss. What is the opinion and/or experience of this supplement on the boards?
This is not something I have much knowledge on (yohimbine and women), but I have frequently seen woman use it, orally, and have never heard of a concern in this regard.
Indeed, we recommend it topically to women all the time.
My hunch is that it was just a warning stuck on a label without much thought.
Hell, the articles that I consider the standard texts for using yohimbine while dieting were written by Elzi Volk.
I wouldn't worry about it too much.
It is probably due to the fact that it could possibly elevate Testosterone levels. If it does, the effect is minor, nothing to worry about. You are still better off with yohimbine HCl than yohimbe though.
