FDA Warning Against Valentine Herbal Aphrodisiacs

In view of the upcoming Valentine's Day to the American Food & Drug Administration has issued a warning to men to stay away from herbal aphrodisiacs or supplements because so many of them contain compounds that are harmful to health.
Food & Drug Administration officials in undercover operations have identified over 50 so called sex enhancers that had not been registered according to the law with the American health authorities. These products were immediately confiscated but this is no guarantee that they cannot be sold on the black market or online.
Emilio L. Polig from the FDA said that many of the product labels were not even written in English but in Chinese characters. The warning was also extended to Chinese herbal sex teas.
The FDA said that the products sometimes contained amphetamines, steroids or the altered active ingredients of one of the three erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. We have come across hundreds of these fake so called herbal erectile dysfunction aids and we have seen how dangerous they can be from the reports of men being hospitalised after using them.
Unfortunately at around this time of year with Valentine's Day coming up many men experiment with these products and the results can be dangerous. If you want to get help for erectile dysfunction you should always go and see a doctor and get a prescription for Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. This can be done online at the Ukmedix web site and it is also possible to check that the drugs you are buying are genuine using the Pharmacheck system.
The FDA has undertaken to continue to test all herbal sex stimulants and check whether they are registered with the appropriate authority. The market in these supplements has grown massively over the last few years and need to be clamped down on not only in America but also in the UK and other European countries.
Be warned that just because something is for sale in a health shop in the UK does not mean that it is genuine.
