YOHIMBE (Pausinystalia johimbe)
Yohimbe derived from a tree that is native to Africa has become quite popular due to its reputation as a strong aphrodisiac. It dilates the blood vessels of the skin and mucous membranes, thus bringing the blood closer to the surface of the sex organs and simultaneously lowering blood pressure. Yohimbe has been found to make erections harder and firmer through increased circulation to the genital area.
PLEASE NOTE: Yohimbe should NEVER be taken at the same time as foods or substances containing tyramine, an amino acid. Foods high in tyramine include: liver, cheese, and red wine as well as certain diet aids and decongestants. This herb SHOULD BE AVOIDED if there are heart arrhythmias or high blood pressure present.
