    Acute neurotoxicity after yohimbine ingestion by a body builder


    I'm really sick of seeing this dangerous ingredient in fat loss and libido/enhancer type products. There are so many products out there that use it and it is really not safe. This is not an isolated incident. Just google it and you will find a ton more. The choice is up to you but personally I stay far away from anything with this ingredient in the profile.

    I detest yohimbine... but the guy took 5000mg of the stuff. The most I've seen in a single product is 8-10mg per dose. WTF?

    I have read that insulin can neutralise yohimbine's effect totally.
    sounds not a very effective stuff, compare to its risk.

    Yeah and it really upsets me that you can buy ibuprofen and take 300 caps and die /s

    5grams of yohimbe is obscene,

    Overdose requiring hospitalization occurring from as little as 2 grams of caffeine has been reported.

    I usually take 9mg and I'm appropriately stimmed, but 5 GRAMS!!! Did he think he was scooping into his protein tub or something, damn.

    Given Yohimbine is a gray area supp, a general rule for anything you ingest is keeping it in moderation. Vitamin C is toxic at excessive doses. When you take 555.5% of the max recommended dosage for Yohimbine, which in a sense would be about 11,110mg of Vitamin C, you'd end up going to the hospital for that one as well.

    I mean really, 5 GRAMS, the guy is an idiot. That's like taking 140mg of Ephedrine in a single setting or whatever idiotic, excessive dosing of a supplement and/or vitamin. Everything in moderation, because almost anything abused is bad for you. There's even such a thing as water poisoning for gawd sakes.
