Because no adequate studies have been conducted on yohimbe, dosing for the supplement has not been clearly established. Some studies that have been done on yohimbine (the active compound in yohimbe) used 15 mg to 30 mg a day. However, various yohimbe products may contain different amounts of yohimbine, so a standard dosage cannot be recommended.
An Introduction to Yohimbe DosageIt is important to note that unlike medications (for which the standard doses have been well established), there is less information available for determining the best dose for herbal supplements, including yohimbe.
Reasonable Dosing for YohimbeAlthough yohimbine (the active compound in yohimbe) has been evaluated in clinical studies, no adequate studies have been done using yohimbe itself. As a result, a safe and effective yohimbe dosage has not been determined. For yohimbine, most studies used doses of 15 mg to 30 mg a day. Because different yohimbe products may contain vastly different amounts of the yohimbine component, a single standard dose of yohimbe cannot be recommended.
- Because the manufacturing of supplements (such as yohimbe) is not closely regulated, it is important to choose a trustworthy manufacturer of yohimbe supplements. It is a good idea to look for the "USP" symbol, as this means that the supplement has been tested and contains the right ingredients in the right amounts.
- If you have any chronic health problems or take any prescription medications, it is probably a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before taking yohimbe.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or yohimbe dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider.
