Dangers of Herbal Viagra

Comments Off

Unless you are living under a rock, you have likely heard about ex-pro basketball player and reality celebrity, Lamar Odom, overdosing recently, and reports he was possibly overusing herbal Viagra.  It has been reported Mr. Odom was known to take eight to ten herbal Viagra pills at one time.  Whether or not this supplement is the blame for Mr. Odom’s dire condition, it is a wake-up call to being careful when taking herbal sexual enhancement supplements, with the description as herbal or natural not guaranteeing safety.  In fact, it can be that consumers take such supplements with more abandon than they might a prescribed drug due to them being sold in over-the-counter products in the form of pills, gums, and are touted to be natural and fast-acting.  Powders and herbs promising vigor, stamina and virility often claim to contain natural ingredients such as horny goat weed.  They are readily available online, in stores, at gas stations, or even in vending machines, but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned that such supplements can contain other chemicals possibly unsafe to the body and they do not go through the rigorous testing of FDA approved product.  The supplements used for sexual dysfunction have the capacity to lower blood pressure dangerously.
