The United Kingdom's Office of Fair Trading (OFT) following extensive correspondence with a company based in Latvia has obtained promises that they will no longer send out mail shots and promote a product said to cure erectile dysfunction in the UK. The product called "STIFF Strips" was marketed all over the United Kingdom by the company S.I.H.N using the name Reprohealth.
Reprohealth said their product was a new discovery which contained extremely powerful impotence agents which would have an effect on erectile function within five minutes. They also claimed that by using STIFF Strips you would be able to have sex for hours and hours. The product was also supposed to be five times more potent than any other type of impotence remedy on the market.
The mail shots were also accompanied by testimonials from a number of men who claimed that STIFF Strips had had an incredibly dramatic effect on their sexual performance. Lastly but by no means least Reprohealth claimed that the product would work for women too.
In line with correct practice the Office of Fair Trading requested from Reprohealth clinical evidence that supported the claims that were being made by the company. As expected they failed to provide any proper evidence to support any of their claims and thus they were asked to immediately stop selling the product in the United Kingdom.
Reprohealth was also operating two web sites based in the United Kingdom which allowed customers to buy the STIFF Strips online. Is not clear exactly what the STIFF Strips contained but it is likely that they either contained absolutely nothing and relied purely on a placebo effect or that they were laced with the active ingredients of either Viagra, Cialis or Levitra.
Tens of thousands of people every year in the UK become victims of elaborate scams involving "miracle" health supplements and products. You should always speak to a doctor before using a product for your health.
