Yohimbine is a popular weight loss supplement, but how does it actually work? And can you use it to target stubborn fat? Listen to this show to find out.

It seems like every time you turn around, there’s a new weight loss supplement clamoring for your attention.

You know, one that promises to shrink your belly fat, curb your appetite, or maybe even allow you to eat anything you damn well please and still lose weight.

It all sounds great at first, but by now, most of us realize the idea of a “weight loss pill” is, at bottom, bunk.

No amount of pills or powders alone can give us the lean bodies we want.

Does that mean we should write off weight loss supplements entirely, though?

Not so fast.

When you look at the scientific research, evidence suggests some weight loss supplements can actually move the needle and thus are worth considering.

You just have to know what to look for and how they affect your body, so you can use them properly.

And that brings us to yohimbine.

It’s often found in pre-workout supplements (because it’s a light stimulant) and fat burner supplements (because it purportedly accelerates weight loss), but what is it exactly?

Does it actually help with weight loss? What about dosing and side effects? Is it dangerous?

Well, this episode is going to answer all those questions and more.

By the end, you’re going to know exactly what yohimbine can and can’t do and you can then decide if it’s worth your money.
