YohimBurn - Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS YOHIMBURN?
Yohimburn is a topical fat burning gel that specifically targets stubborn fatty deposits.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Yohimburn's active ingredient is Yohimbine. Yohimbine binds to sites in your body called Alpha-2 (A2) receptors. Yohimbine is an Alpha-2 antagonist, which means that it blocks these A2 receptors sites. Yohimburn delivers Yohimbine to the site where it is applied. Which should be a site with a lot of A2 receptors, which we will get into later.

WHY IS BLOCKING THESE A2 RECEPTOR SITES BENEFICIAL?
If you block the A2 receptor it prevents the receptor from telling your body to stop producing Nor epinephrine (NE) at that site. The increase in NE at the site causes considerably more fatty acids to be released. This release of fatty acids, to be used for energy, is often referred to as "FAT BURNING".

WHERE ARE THESE A2 RECEPTOR SITES?
Well they are located throughout your body. But their highest concentrations are in STUBBORN FATTY DEPOSITS. It is the high number of A2 receptors in these areas that makes them stubborn.

DO I HAVE LOTS OF THE A2 RECEPTORS OR NOT?
(Is Yohimburn going to work for me)?

There is one main factor, other than genetics, that is involved in determining an individual's number of A2 receptors. It is exposure to ESTROGEN. Estrogen agonizes these A2 sites, which shuts down even further the use of fatty acids. What this means is that it stops fat burning at the site. Even worse, repeated exposure to Estrogen INCREASES the number of A2 sites. If you are a women you will tend to have a lot of these A2 sites because of the fact that women have considerably higher levels of Estrogen. Areas where these A2 sites are typically richest.. they tend to be highest in thighs, gluteus , hips and often the triceps ( the back of the arm). The high number of A2 receptors in these areas is why it is often so difficult to lose fat there.

SO, IF I AM A MAN, IT WON'T DO MUCH FOR ME?
No, quite the opposite Yohimburn can be very effective for men. However the areas where it is most beneficial are less consistent than those of women.

HOW ARE THE AREAS OF EFFECTIVENESS DIFFERENT?
Men often, but not always, have less A2 rich fat tissue. Having less A2 rich tissue is part of the reason that it is easier for men to lose weight. However, genetically most men have some A2 rich areas. In men these areas are the lower abs, love handles and lower back and sometimes thighs. Before you jump to the conclusion that Yohimburn will only work on those areas you need to know there is also the fact that men are exposed to more and more estrogenic substances from the environment. This exposure which comes in many forms, which include but are not limited to chemicals, pesticides and even many plastics that are in our food and water and air. Of interest and concern to some, Alcohol use increases levels of estrogen and marijuana use results in estrogenic cannabis metabolites. There is also exposure to estrogen that takes place during puberty where the raging production of testosterone is excessive and thus converted to estrogen. The worst part for men is that most of their estrogen is produced through the enzymatic conversion of testosterone by aromatase, which is produced peripherally in THESE VERY FAT STORES and is somewhat dependent on their size. Thus for men these stores of Fat represent a vicious cycle where the fat acquired sustains and propagates itself. Men with higher estrogen levels will have some characteristics of female fat storage, one of the worst of which is fat stored around the chest and the nipple.

I AM A MAN WITH GYNECOMASTIA WILL THIS YOHIMBURN HELP ME?
If you have "true" gynecomastia Yohimburn will have no direct effect on the hard tissue that has formed under your nipple. It may have an indirect effect that may lead to a reduction of the tissue size. This reduction, which has been noted by some of our customers may be due to the decrease in local aromatase production which is due to the reduction in local fatty stores.

If you have soft tissue gynecomastia, which is also referred to as pectoral feminization, Yohimburn will be of great help to you and will help you to quickly reduce these fatty tissue stores as they are almost always very A2 rich.

SO IF I HAVE A SAGGY CHEST WITH FAT CONCENTRATED NEAR THE NIPPLES IT WILL WORK?
Yes.

WHAT IF I HAVE ENLARGED AND/OR PUFFY NIPPLES?
Yohimburn will help, but it may take longer to get the nipple size to reduce and the nipple puffiness to recede. For some people the water retention locally will be bad, so don't let the lack of immediate results with this particular condition dismay you. Of course, some people get almost immediate reduction of both nipple puffiness and nipple size. The main difference seems to be the cause of the puffiness. If it is caused by Estrogen it goes away very quickly with Yohimburn use. If it is caused by prolactin or progestins it may not be effective.

How is Yohimburn applied?
It is applied directly to the area where you have stubborn fat pockets. You use the pump to squirt a measured amount onto the skin, which you then rub in.

Is there anything that I need to do to prepare my skin for the application?
1. you should exfoliate the area, at least 2 to 3 times per week. Exfoliation gets rid of the dead surface layer of skin that may hinder your results. It is also recommended that areas with hair be shaved for optimal results. Shaving also enhances absorption because it removes dead skin.
2. you should apply to clean skin, usually after a shower. If not applying after a shower, just rub the application site with a warm/hot wet cloth or rag. Warm skin is preferable.

SO HOW LONG WILL A BOTTLE LAST ME?
It really depends on how much you use and the frequency of use but a bottle typically lasts 4-6 weeks.

How often should I apply Yohimburn?
Once or twice a day. Though some people like to apply it more often. When applying more often you must be aware of the fact that Yohimbine and its metabolites can build up in your system and the above side effects may "sneak" up on you with more frequent dosing.
One application 20-30 minutes prior to working out is highly recommended for the best results. The second, optional application depends on whether or not you have problems sleeping when it's applied at night.

DO I HAVE TO DIET AND EXERCISE?
Some people don't, but you will get considerably better results if you do diet and exercise. If you over eat it may help to keep you from getting fatter, at least in the A2 rich fatty tissue, but it will not help you to lose fat. The amount of fat you will lose without diet and exercise may not noticeable.

CAN I APPLY IT EVERY DAY?
Yes . It should be used daily 20-30 minutes before working out. If you don't work out every day then it should be applied at the time of day that you would work out if it was a training day.

HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS?
It varies and depends upon a lot of factors. The three main factors are diet, exercise and water retention. But results can been seen in as little as one week.

ARE THE RESULT PERMANENT OR JUST TEMPORARY?
The results are "permanent" loss of fat, not just temporary losses of water which is sadly the basis for many fat loss products. The permanent is in " " because as with any fat loss if you overeat or are exposed to the same biochemical environment, usually in conjunction with the overeating, fat can return. But is as permanent as any other fat loss. In another section we will deal with managing estrogen, which is important for both men and women.

ARE THERE ANY STIMULATORY EFFECTS FROM YOHIMBURN?
Yes, which is why it is recommended that one of the applications should be 20-30min prior to workout. Applying before your workout will give you extra energy, will improve fat burning effects, and will result in less perceived exertion.

HOW IS YOHIMBURN DIFFERENT FROM TAKING YOHIMBINE ORALLY?
Orally Yohimbine is not very effective at fat burning. Yohimbine when taken orally, which comes in formulations like NYC or NYC+, has stronger stimulatory effects because it is all delivered systemically. The stimulatory effects of Yohimburn are not as strong but they are more even and last longer. With oral Yohimbine intake the "spike" is very quick and Yohimbine is metabolized VERY quickly. The half life of Yohimbine, once in the bloodstream, is 7-11min.

The advantages of Yohimburn are that you get a slower release over several hours, meaning longer effective fat burning. This slow release results allows for a larger more effective dose without causing the negative side effect of over stimulation Yohimburn is also much more effective at Fat Burning, because the large dose if Yohimbine is delivered locally to the fatty tissues where it is needed. You could not achieve the same concentrations locally, even with massive oral doses.... which would be very unpleasant.

I AM A WOMAN AND STIMULANTS MAKE ME JITTERY CAN I TAKE YOHIMBURN?
Yohimburn is well tolerated by women. They often find the mild stimulatory effects very pleasant, though just like men they can take too much.

SINCE IT IS STIMULATORY CAN I TAKE IT BEFORE I GO TO BED?
This really depends. Some people can and some people cannot. If when you sit around after application you tend to become tired then you are more likely to be able to sleep. This can be true even if taking it right before bed
