Yohimbine HCL: What You Need to Know

Mobilize and burn fat in stubborn areas with this supplement. Here's how.

Make sure you don't confuse this with Yohimbe bark, which can be tough to dose correctly and can often cause nausea or sickness. Yohimbine is also a stimulant, but it's more specifically known as an "alpha-2 adreno receptor antagonist."

It's unique in its ability to essentially "block" alpha 2 receptors within the fat cells, and stubborn body fat areas are linked to sites rich in these alpha 2 receptors.

The alpha 2 rich areas are known to have a poor blood supply, so even when we exercise it's hard to mobilize and move these fatty acids. They also actually appear to inhibit fat loss via signaling of HSL (Hormone Sensitive Lipase), which is a key fat-releasing enzyme in the body. So theoretically, if we can try to switch off these alpha 2 receptors, we may increase blood flow as well as switch on lipolysis (fat burning) in the stubborn areas.
