Summary of Rauwolscine

Primary information, health benefits, side effects, usage, and other important details

Rauwolscine is what is known as a diastereoisomers of Yohimbine. There are 3 diastereoisomers, the other two being corynanthine and 3-epi-alpha-yohimbine. Basically, it is an alternate form of it with slightly altered properties.

It's mechanisms of action are very similar to yohimbine, as it can act as an Alpha(2)Adrenergic antagonist and thus aid in fat burning (not so much by inducing fat loss, but by alleviating pressures the body exerts to preserve fat mass; its like preventing the body from stopping the fat loss, but doesn't induce it directly). Rauwolscine shows some promise in being more effective due to higher potency on the same receptor.

It also shares the same aphrodisiac and mood-elevating effects as yohimbine, although the potency on this relative to yohimbine is not known.

How to Take

Medical Disclaimer

Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details

There is insufficient information for recommending a dosage of rauwolscine, although usually the dosing of yohimbine supplementation is extrapolated onto rauwolscine.

Primary Function:

Also Known As

Alpha-yohimbine, isoyohimbine

Do Not Confuse With

Yohimbine

Goes Well With

  • Adrenaline increasing compounds like Caffeine

Caution Notice

Rauwolscine has more potent MAO inhibitory effects than does yohimbine, and the same cautions of pairing monoamines with an MAO extend to Rauwolscine with a bit more weight.

  • Rauwolscine is highly stimulatory and may also be mood-elevating.
