Beware of natural supplements for sex gain and weight loss


In fact, the Council for Responsible Nutrition reported in 2017 that 87 percent of U.S. consumers have confidence that dietary supplements, such as vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, oils, microbiome bacteria and amino acids, are safe and effective.


Combining them with a drug to treat ED; as the FDA said the makers of Willy Go Wild did, can cause a patient's blood pressure to drop precipitously.


A study in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2015 estimated that dietary supplements led to 23,000 emergency department visits and over 2,000 hospitalizations a year.


Weight loss products or those related to increased energy also caused 72 percent of supplement-related adverse events , including palpitations, chest pain or racing heart rate.


As long as the product contains natural ingredients intended to promote or support health and not to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease, it qualifies as a dietary supplement.


Independent laboratory verification from the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) can help assure that the vitamin or herb specified on the label is in the bottle and that the product has a low risk of microbe, heavy metal or PCB contamination.
