Yohimbe is a stimulant that works by blocking receptors located in the fat cells -- these are known as alpha-2 adrenergic receptors. By blocking these receptors, Yohimbe stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and causes its output to increase and the blood vessels to dilate. This, in turn, causes the release of the neurotransmitters adrenaline (or epinephrine) and noradrenaline (or norepinephrine). The release of these neurotransmitters can result in a faster heart rate and higher blood pressure, both of which can promote a faster metabolic rate and enhanced fat burning.
Yohimbe can be especially helpful for those who are looking to lose stubborn body fat. Many areas that contain stubborn body fat, contain a higher density of alpha-2 adrenergic receptors. Since Yohimbe blocks these receptors and prolongs fat burning, it can give a bit of a weight loss boost to those who are struggling to lean out or looking to lose those last few pounds and are already on point with their training and diet.
In addition to increasing one’s metabolic rate, Yohimbe can also help to improve athletic performance. In many cases, the use of pre-workout supplements that contain Yohimbe can help athletes feel more energized during their workouts (especially when Yohimbe is combined with other stimulants). As a result of their increased energy and stamina, athletes may be able to push themselves farther than they would otherwise be able. This, in turn, can yield better training results and an improved physique. ProSupps’ premium pre-workout product, Mr. Hyde NitroX, contains Yohimbe, along with caffeine and several other effective compounds to provide more energy, enhance performance, and increase your fat-burning potential.
