  • Yohimbine - wow

    Not to be confused with Yohimbe; this is the synthetic derivative of the active ingredient in yohimbe.

    I got it on Amazon:

    Amazon.com: Serious Nutrition Yohimbine 2.5, 100 Count: Health & Personal Care

    Man oh man this stuff is scary effective. To the point that I (6'2", 200lb Saber Cat) have to open and empty half of a capsule that I take at 7am in order to go to sleep by 9:30pm. A full capsule has me feeling my heart beat at the tip of my fingers with super-charged ADD brain unable to sleep (and capable of running a 5k) at 3 AM

    what it does:

    - think the affects of caffeine with some added rage
    - increase heart rate
    - literally increases core body temperature (sometimes uncomfortably - my girlfriend said I was an oven, while naked and on top of the covers at the middle of the night)
    - increases blood flow to the extremities
    - penis stuff

    I started using it last summer and stopped after three weeks because it increased (my otherwise nonexistent) anxiety, insomnia. So I wouldn't recommend taking it on a daily basis but rather for a tactical advantage. eg on Sunday I used it before day two of my crossfit competition - finished the final two wods in Beast Mode style. I could push beyond my normal limits once I reached my threshold (or so it felt).

    Highly recommended to weight lifters, athletes as an interesting boost to compare to your normal intensity base line.

    A few caveats: I recommend taking half dosage (emptying a pill half way) at first and seeing how you react - especially if you are smaller than me. Secondly I recommend taking it as early in the morning as possible so as not to affect your sleep at night.

    This is the most terrifying recommendation of anything I've ever read.

      Yeah, it actually sounds pretty awful.

        Poison's in the dose and I know nothing about human use or efficacy from oral admin...but taking a drug that will cause tachycardia and then doing a crossfit WOD is probably not doing great things for your cardiovascular system

            I've tried Yohimbe in its natural form which was ok, but definitely gave me more of a jolt than caffeine does. I felt energized for hours. I got a little jittery at first but it subsided.

            However, extracting the active ingredient and taking it in its pure, unadulterated form just feels like asking for all KINDS of trouble. The regular stuff was plenty for me, so I won't be screwing around with any extracts of it anytime soon.
            "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                Seriously. I never want to touch this stuff thanks to you. It might literally kill me since I'm half your size.

                    I'm pretty sure this supplement might give us the ability to grow one if we took an entire pill.

                        Anyone have experience with yohimbine, and also tribulus or L-arginine?

                            I've used it. Very effective for getting down to a really low bf%. but it only really seemed to help when i was already around 10% or lower. It does make me super anxious though.

                              Hmmm...I don't think I'd take it to work out. I don't even like to drink coffee too close to working out. But this might be helpful for my upcoming bar exam...It's certainly cheaper than five-hour energy, which is the only thing that gets me through those last few days of cramming AND the three-day exam.

                              Edit: Yes, I've taken the bar before (July), and, no, I didn't fail it. It was a different state.

                              Edit 2: Upon further research, i.e., reading the relevant Wikipedia article, I've decided that it would not be a good alternative to five-hour energy. It has a low therapeutic index and can cause certain undesirable side effects when combined with other things.
