Yohimbine HCL question
hey guys. I just bought 1 gram of yohimbine HCL in powder form and I am trying to dissolve it in 200 mg of water to give 5 mg/ml. I thought yohimbine was supposed to be completely hydrophilic but some of it is not dissolving and is clumping in certain areas.
Any recommendations?? Should I just keep stirring?

add a drop or two of everclear, and shake the hell out of it

warming it up (not too much as yohimbine is somewhat temp sensitive) will increase solubility.
yohimbine actually has very poor solubility in water.
the addition of alcohol will increase solubility, somewhat. It will also decrease bacterial issues. (add alcohol AFTER heating).

thanks for the advice. Any recommendations on guggulsterone? It is supposed to be lipophillic but it do is not doing so well.
This isn't a major problem, just a pain in the A*S. I am shaking the heck out of both solutions and quickly drawing up the desired amount with a syringe.
