Thanks to the effect on adrenoreceptors, the ability of the drug to burn fat, even in the most “problematic” places, which, by the way, are rich in these types of receptors. When exposed to circulating Catecholamines, such as noradrenaline and epinephrine, the alpha 2 receptors inhibit lipolysis (release of fatty acids), while beta receptors stimulate it. In general, adrenaline, noradrenaline, glucagon, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), and growth hormone stimulates the release of fatty acids from adipose tissue into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, fatty acids tend to rapidly oxidize, if the concentration in the blood of fatty acids is not increased from the input of fatty acids, as a result of food intake.

In the treatment of impotence, yohimbine is taken with or after food, while when treating obesity, take on an empty stomach. The fact is that this alkaloid in combination with food promotes the release of insulin, and this leads to the deposition of fat, and not to its burning.

Some athletes use caffeine tablets instead of coffee.
