How long do yohimbe cold chills last?

How long do yohimbe cold chills last?

Probably not long: It is hard to find reliable information on this. If you get chills it's an indication that you have taken a dangerously high dose & I would caution against taking high doses again. The best info I found show that the "half-life" is about an hour but this is for the yohimbine component & the chills are caused by other alkaloids with unknown half lives-but I expect it would last a few hours at most. ...Read more

Is it safe to take dhea, and yohimbe?

Is it safe to take dhea, and yohimbe?

WHY?: Dhea is converted to cortisone, testosterone and estrogen - and you have not control as to which or how much. Also, most of the dhea supplements don't have much dhea in them, and who know what else is in there. You don't even know why you're taking them or how to measure your response. Don't get medical info from tv, friends and the internet. Yohimbine won't do anything positive for you either. ...Read more

The best supplement for pre-workout is a combination of carbohydrates and proteins taken anytime between 30 minutes to 2 hours before exercise. ...Read more

Do any of the following products by gnc, - arginmax, or horny goat weed, yohimbe, or panax ginseng- contain amphetamines, and methamphetamine s?

They can't: The answer is categorically "no way, no how! " to paraphrase the wizard of oz. The explanation is simple, anything with amphetamine in it would have to be a prescription drug and could not be purchased over-the-counter. On the other hand, anything containing methamphetamine and sold over-the-counter gets you 10-20 years in every state of the union last time I checked (unlike marijuana). ...Read more
