Works, But Halve Capsule
Tried a number of different energy & "T" boosting supplements. Found Yohimbe to be by far the most effective. But like others, consuming a whole capsule delivers slew of side-effects such as skin-crawling jitters, elevated heart-beat, heat-prickling & then chills.
Experimented with cutting dose in half (i.e. biting thru & consuming only half) capsule - taking other half either every 6-8 hours or occasionally every 12 hours.
That worked! Received sought after benefits (increased energy, libido, etc) translating into greater stamina - especially during gym work-outs. There are still some side-effects, such as shortened period of slightly elevated heart-beat and bout of slight chills. But all seem to quickly fade during exercise or gym workout...
Consequently, rated "Convenience" low since a smaller dose capsule (such as 250 or 300 mg) would be closer to ideal!

Works, I guess,, but it's Not for me
Took this product for the first time, within a hour had cold sweats and jitters, I guess it works for for some, but doesn't seem to agree with my system, I will be sending back for refund, I love Swanson s guarantee and free shipping labels.

nervous breakdown in a bottle
I had good experience with Swanson's regular Yohimbe, and took advantage of a 2 for 1 offer for this "superior herbs" version, but it was so "speedy" it nearly had me crawling out of my skin! I was sweating and nervous all evening and was a complete wreck! Needless to say, that is not the effect I was looking for in this product! I even tried just taking a half a capsule another night (because I was reluctant to throw away 2 full bottles!), but even that was unpleasant. Product tossed in the trash now.

Potent--watch out for those side effects....
So I picked up a bottle of the yohimbe, just to see what all the buzz was about. Lots of people swear by this stuff.
Had a bit of a snack (some swiss cheese) then took a pill. BIG mistake.
After the fact I took a closer look at the labeling and on-line; found out that certain foods and yohimbe are a very bad combination. This includes cheese. Greatly increases the chances of getting yohimbe's side-effects...including abnormally high blood pressure.
Essentially, I started feeling the side-effects--very heavy legs with a throbbing feeling, pressure-headache, and the like. Lasted for about 2 hours.
So, I'm pretty sure yohimbe will work as advertised...but be careful about interactions!

Only taking for two months. Seems to be improving some things.

I tried this product several times and determined that the substance was not for me. It makes me weak and gives my cold sweats and rapid heart beat. I wanted it to work. But the side effects were too negative. I carefully checked out Swanson & the product before buying, and my consistent response over several tries serves to confirm the quality of the product. Thanks anyway!

Too Powerful for me!
This certainly works in the bedroom, but at a price for me. Can't sleep. Feel wired. 200 mg of Yohimbe is much better for me. We are all different. I can't use this much powerful potency of Yohimbe but it might be fine for others. You can't lose with their money back guarantee. Swanson's is the Best.

Friend had bad reaction
Bought this for a friend who had a very bad reaction - hot and cold, sweats, nausea. Probably just him, but be careful to only take one and wait a few hours and monitor your body's reaction, if any.

I use the Yohimbe 500 mg. 2% yohimbine alkaloid content occasionally.I recommend following the directions on the bottle.This is a very powerful herb.The way I took it the 2nd time was to open a capsule. Pour out the contents of the short side of the capsule into the bottle lid.Get it with my tongue and drink water to swallow.Pour the large side of the capsule into a suitable container for later use.By doing this,you can find the amount of this herb that is just right for you.The way I took it the 1st time,was one whole capsule,with water.It comes on slow and builds over a few hours.It made me feel a little hyper or antsy,so I cut back on the amount the 2nd time.Overall,I like this yohimbe 500 mg. with 2% yohimbine alkaloids.
The % of alkaloids varies among yohimbe products,the higher the %,the stronger it is.
As I said before,follow the directions on the bottle,do my method of having "some",not "all" of a capsule in order to find the amount that works best for you.Do a search to find out more info about yohimbe,and enjoy.

Seems to give a fairly clean energy boost with no crash. I take ONE with a cup of tea or coffee and have no issues (I started with only the Yohimbe plain with no caffeine to test the effects). DO NOT over-use stimulants while on this supplement. You will be restless at night.
This is standardized to a high quality of Yohimbine alkaloids (about 10 mg) which is perfect for one dose.

Pay attention to the warnings
This is not for everybody but if used as directed by those that can use it, this is safe and pretty much effective. I find that if I take two at once it gives me an odd and unpleasant feeling not so conducive for the primary reason of taking it in the first place. So now I follow the labels direction with no problems. Your results may vary but again use as directed.

Product works as advertised and is smoother than other brands I've tried. Doesn't give me serious jitters-just effective enhancement.
