Does A Natural Viagra Exist?
Yohimbe Bark preparations are widely used as aphrodisiacs and also as stimulants. In Cameroon, for instance, the Yohimbe bark is popularly known as ‘the African Viagra’. In Gabon, small quantities of the Yohimbe bark are chewed to dispel sleep, while as an aphrodisiac it is used in larger quantities or more frequently.
The Yohimbe bark can also be used as a local anesthetic, a hallucinogen, to treat angina, against constipation and intestinal worms, as a performance enhancer for athletes, and to increase the clarity of singers’ voices. In Congo, a Yohimbe bark decoction is drunk for the treatment of pelvic pain. In Gabon, the Yohimbe bark is used as a fish poison.
