Yohimbe and Manhood Health

Yohimbe and Manhood Health
Manhood health could easily be considered a subset of sensual health;
certainly the health of the member is going to play a role in the functional
aspects of manhood health. Many men who experience manhood health
issues involving weak or absent tumescence try various strategies to achieve
or maintain a hardened state. In many cases, men turn to over-the-counter
options, often sold as “supplements” or “natural enhancers.”
Yohimbe is a supplement believed by some to help address tumescence
dysfunction. But does it actually do this? And if it does, does it do so safely?
Made from the bark of an African tree, yohimbe is sold as both an herbal
supplement by itself and as an ingredient in other over-the-counter products.
Though it has long been marketed as a way to overcome tumescence
dysfunction, it has in recent years also been used by bodybuilders seeking to
hurry along fat loss.
Yohimbe has been used for hundreds, if not thousands, of years by people in
Africa who believe it has power as an aphrodisiac and tumescence booster. It
has a good reputation for effectiveness among those who promote herbal
medicines. But what about among the standard medical community?
Several studies have focused on whether yohimbe is actually effective at
improving manhood health and, in particular, tumescence issues. Although
the studies do not conclusively prove or disprove the thesis, some do
indicate there is a potential benefit in terms of manhood health.
For example, one study which looked at 82 men with tumescence
dysfunction examined treatment with yohimbe versus treatment with a
placebo. Only seven percent of those taking the placebo reported any
improvement. However, in the group taking yohimbe, 34% reported a small
improvement and 20% reported that they were functioning successfully.
There are side effects which may occur after using yohimbe. This is
important to consider because, as an over-the-counter herbal supplement
rather than a tablet, yohimbe is not regulated by the Food and Tablet
High blood pressure, anxiety, gastrointestinal problems and an increased
heart rate are among the more commonly reported sided effects associated
with yohimbe or with products containing yohimbe. Kidney injury, seizures
and heart attacks have also been reported, although much less commonly.
The fact that over-the-counter yohimbe is not regulated by the FDA adds to
this problem. It means that the product may have inaccurate labeling. So, for
example, it may claim to include 10mg of yohimbe in a tablet when it fact it
contains maybe 1mg or even100 mg instead. Or there may be other
ingredients included which are left off the label. It’s also important to realize
that many supplements present yohimbe in a much more highly concentrated
form than is found in nature.
So should a man with manhood health issues use yohimbe? That is a
personal decision, but he would be well advised to consult with a doctor
before doing so – and to be aware of any potential risks that might be
associated with using it.
Whether a man uses yohimbe or any other treatment options for his sensual
health, he still needs to pay attention to general male organ health. One way
to do so is to regularly use a top notch male organ health crème (health
professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven
mild and safe for skin). Many men may be interested in a crème which
contains L-arginine. This vital amino acid helps the body to create nitric
oxide, which is key in keeping male member blood vessels open and
receptive to the increased blood flow that sustains a tumescence. The best
crème will also include vitamin A, the antibacterial properties of which can
be very effective at fighting persistent and unwanted manhood odor.

Good manhood health is a fine goal for any man, especially one experiencing tumescence issues. Some promote the use of yohimbe to help with this problem, but there can be side effects.
