Top Ingredients to Burn Fat - Alpha Yohimbine

Fat burners are an interesting breed of dietary supplement in that they attack the problem of weight loss from multiple directions.

Or at least, they should….

You see, the typical fat burner contains not much more than a truckload of caffeine alongside some green coffee bean extract and other questionably-effective ingredients. Aside from a modest boost in energy and trivial increase in calorie burning, conventional fat burners don’t actually burn much fat.

The best fat burners include ingredients that not only stimulate the metabolism, but also ingredients that impact the host of underlying biological processes that affect the release, transportation, and oxidation of stored body fat.

Today, we look at one of those vitally important “supporting” players in fat burners that doesn’t get enough credit in rauwolscine.

Rauwolscine is a stereoisomer of yohimbine, which is why the compound is commonly referred to as alpha-yohimbine.


Rauwolscine is naturally occurring in rauwolfia vomitoria and functions remarkably similar to “standard” yohimbine.


Namely, rauwolscine antagonizes alpha-2 adrenergic receptors and stimulates serotonin receptors. How does this enhance fat burning?


Well, fat cells (adipocytes) have alpha and beta receptors. When fat-burning catecholamines (adrenaline and noradrenaline) bind to beta receptors, fat cells become “unlocked” and release their stored fatty acids into the bloodstream where they can be taken up by cells and used for energy.


However, when these chemicals bind to alpha receptors, fat burning is blunted.


As an alpha-receptor antagonist, rauwolscine (alpha-yohimbine) binds to the alpha receptors, “clogging” them and preventing adrenaline and noradrenaline form binding. This allows greater amounts of the fat-releasing chemicals to bind to beta receptors and rev up the fat burning process.

Due to this combination of effects, rauwolscine can stimulate the CNS, improve mood, and enhance the fat burning process. For these reasons, we’ve included 3mg of rauwolfia vomitoria extract in every serving of Exterminator.
