Caffeine & Yohimbine HCL – Why Do They Work?
Yohimbine HCL can be tough to dose correctly, and often causes sickness or nausea. It is also a stimulant, but where its value comes is its ability to ‘block’ alpha 2 receptors within fat cells.
These alpha 2 rich areas are known to have a poor blood supply, so even when we exercise, it’s hard to mobilise and ‘move’ these fatty acids. They also appear to ‘inhibit’ fat loss via signalling of HSL (Hormone Sensitive Lipase), which works as a key fat releasing enzyme in the body.
The above is all a theoretical mechanism by how Yohimbine works but where the real magic lies with regard to fat loss would be the potential appetite suppressing effects, leading to better fat loss outcomes due to improved adherence.
At the end of the day, once you get lean enough your body WILL start tapping into these more "stubborn" areas with or without yohimbine so please don't think it's going to make or break your results.
When you are pushing to get those last bits off though, the process does get a lot more challenging so anything we can add in to help keep us on track isn't going to hurt which is where Yohimbine can be a potent addition.
