Right on Valentine’s Day, the EcoWaste Coalition raised red flags concerning products sold that claim to improve sexual performance and energy. These products may contain harmful ingredients not listed on the label, which can harm one’s health.
The toxics watchdog group cites the advice of health officials from the USA, Canada, and the Philippines. They stated that consumers should only buy products that have passed safety checks.
“These products may cause potentially serious side effects and may interact with medications or dietary supplements a consumer is taking. Consumers should use caution when purchasing these types of products,” the US FDA explained.
The Philippine FDA has cautioned the public about certain “food supplements for men” that are not registered. In June 2023, they found one of these supplements to contain a prescription drug called tadalafil, which is used to treat erectile dysfunction. This drug is not allowed in food supplements due to its potential health risks, especially for people with heart, kidney, stomach, bleeding, or blood cell problems, as well as those with high or low blood pressure.
With that in mind, it is better to be safe than sorry. If you have used any products suspected to be unauthorized, seek medical advice right away. It’s important to care for your health and not ignore any symptoms. Explicitly adult fun times should be done responsibly!
