What is andropause?
Andropause refers to the appearance of signs and symptoms associated with a slow but steady decline in hormones such as testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone in middle-aged men. A decrease in testosterone occurs in men naturally as they age, but during andropause, which is more correctly called "hypogonadism" from a technical point of view, the levels of these hormones fall below the normal range for a given age.
If you haven’t seen an advertisement for “low testosterone” drugs on television or in the press, keep in mind that testosterone prescription drug providers are actively promoting their products to “hook” men with their fast-moving testosterone therapy. However, it should be said that knowledge about andropause and low testosterone levels are highly controversial. Futhermore, the objective of this article, is based on exposing the effect of yohimbe plant on andropause by getting rid of its symptoms.

Taking yohimbine dilates the blood vessels in the genitals of men and women, thereby increasing blood flow to them. As is known, this leads to an erection in men. There are indications that yohimbe bark extract promotes blood flow to the part of the brain that controls sexual function.
The height of the arachnid yohimbe can reach up to 30 meters, although most trees of the species are about 15 meters high. The stem is straight and rarely reaches a thickness of over 50-60 cm in diameter, and the crown is strongly branched. The bark, which is the most sought after part of the tree, is gray to reddish-brown, with longitudinal and horizontal cracks. It peels easily and has a bitter taste.
The inner bark is pinkish and fibrous. The sapwood (living wood) is yellowish and the core is colored in ocher shades. The wood is fine, fine-grained, relatively dense and moderately hard.
Yohimbe leaves grow in groups of three on short (about 2 cm) leaf stalks. The sheets are oval in shape, between 11-47 cm long and between 5-17 cm wide.
Yohimbe tree is found mainly in West and Central Africa, in the forests and jungles of Cameroon, Congo (Brazzaville), Gabon, Nigeria, Cabinda, Equatorial Guinea.
