The active ingredient in yohimbe is called yohimbine, found in the tree bark, and available as a prescription drug under common brand names Erex, Testomar, Yocon, Yohimar, and Yohimbe.

The TGA advises Australian consumers that yohimbine is a prescription-only medicine and a prohibited import. There are currently no products on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) containing the substance yohimbine.

Yohimbine Affects Brain
Clinical trials with Yohimbine show it works on the brain and spinal cord and central nervous system to relax blood vessel walls in the penis, through the release of nitric oxide, allowing for better blood flow and better erections.

In the brain yohimbine stimulates the release of norepinephrine which increases sexual arousal and body temperature.

It may also release dopamine to increase sexual interest.

Alternatives to Yohimbe
Yohimbine is a standardised extract of guaranteed purity. It is not clear what strength of yohimbe – which is not the same as yohimbine – is required to get the same effects without accompanying unpleasant and possibly dangerous side effects.

Yohimbine is available as a prescription-only medicine in Australia. Yohimbe is not legal under government regulations. Alternatives to yohimbe include tribulus terrestris in trusted erectile dysfunction supplement Herbal Ignite.
