Supplements: Three herbal supplements linked to 'dangerously' high blood pressure


Yohimbe is generally taken by those looking to improve sexual ailments, as the supplement increases blood flow and nerve impulses to the genitals.

The plant, which is native to Africa, has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac, explains WebMD.

The Health body adds: “Yohimbe can increase blood pressure and […] slow or stop the flow of urine.”

A study comparing calls about Yohimbe and other substances made to the California Poison Control System between 2000, and 2006, found people calling about Yohimbe were more likely to need medical care than other callers.
