Yohimbine - YHCL (Updated 16Jan2016)

What is Yohimbine/YHCL? - Layman's Terms

It "loosens" up fat in the hard to lose areas. Torso for men and legs and ass for women. This makes it easier for someone to lose weight everywhere at the same rate instead of faster on face, arms, etc and leaving you with a massive gut. If you want more details on what it does, check the info and resources below.

I don't know what to get, please show me!

We've found that a lot of people preferred weighing out their own dose with bulk Yohimbine powder. We've added links for bulk powder and other options to go along with your powder. If you wish to use the capsules, disregard the powder section below. If you wish to use the powder, BE CAREFUL. There is a greater risk of error and overdose. We recommend the scale and the calibration weights so you can test your scale before weighing out your powder.

Capsules (each capsule is 2.5mg of YHCL)

Don't have to measure out yourself, safer, more convenient.

Powder (Measure out your own doses)

Cheaper, more control over dosage, more dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. We recommend using capsules to lower the risk of overdose. Not all of the products are necessary, some people like to make their own capsules, and even combine their caffeine with yohimbine in the capsules. We recommend the scale and calibration weights for more accurate dosing.

Okay, I've got it. Now how do I use it? (dosing)

how do I use it?

  • 0.2mg per kg of bodyweight - there is a calculator below
  • use ONLY while fasted - 16/8 intermittent fasting is good
  • take about 15-20 minutes before performing 30-60 minutes of low intensity steady-state cardio (ie: walking; medium is okay as well, but watch your heart rate)
  • combine with 200mg caffeine per dose but do NOT use other stimulants
  • for your first day, take a single capsule. 1/4 dose on second day, 1/2 dose on third, 3/4 on fourth, finally a full dose on the fifth day
  • there is no cycling, you can use yohimbine indefinitely

Important Information (please read)

Important Information

Do not eat within 3-4 hours before taking Yohimbine. Yohimbine only works in the absense of insulin. Insulin is released into the bloodsteam when you eat, so you have to be fasted for it to work. Also, do not eat immediately after your cardio, as it will continue to work afterward. You can stack this with the EC stack (ephedrine/ephedra + caffeine), but you will not want take them at the same time. You would be replacing one EC dose with this, and not taking your next EC dose until 4 or more hours afterward.

Some users have stacked Yohimbine with Ephedrine and Caffeind (we recommend you not do this), with a reduced dosage for each. For example, if their dosage of Ephedrine would be 25mg and Yohimbine would be 15mg with 200mg caffeine, they would take 12.5mg Ephedrine + 7.5mg Yohimbine + 200mg caffeine.

I'm not a doctor or physiologist. I've run across this stuff on the internet and just gathered it and put it together. I'm not responsible for you and your actions, do your own research. All supplements are not for everyone, there is a possibility of allergic reactions and abuse resulting in stroke, heart attack, death, alien abduction, transgender metamorphosis, etc. Besides, everything on the internet is a lie.
