OTC Supplement: This is an OTC supplement commonly found in body building products and in OTC remedies for erectile dysfunction! It is derived from the bark if a tree found in Central Africa! Chemically, in case you are so inclined, it acts as an alpha2 antagonist!

Use with caution, and let your doctor know about it! Best to run it by her/him first, so it's on your medical record. This is not a supplement to take lightly.
