Beware of Scams and Dangerous Male Enhancement Drugs and Products
Male enhancement is all the rage. And why not? Who couldn’t use a little bedroom boost, or a few more inches “in all of the right places.” But, that is all the more reason that men need to not buy into all the dubious claims of increased penis size and improved sexual performance that are probably clogging your email.
Many of the claims made by these unregulated, and largely untested products are dubious at best, and some can be downright dangerous.
The FDA, always weary about such male enhancement products, is now becoming more actively involved in trying to stem the tide of what it labels a disturbing “and emerging trend” of dangerously mislabeled products with names such as Weekend Warrior and O.M.G., that promise male “sexual enhancement.”
The problem is, instead of being harmless “herbal supplements” as claimed, these products contain prescription medication and other potentially harmful ingredients. The FDA has issued “notifications” on at least 20 such male enhancement pills that are actually tainted with sildenafil – the active ingredient in Viagra. In each of the official notifications, the FDA warns men who may have purchased the product to stop taking it, and dispose of it immediately.
Sildenafil has several side effects, and is not recommended for all men with erectile dysfunction (ED). This is why doctors prescribe it with caution.
For example, men with heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes who may be taking nitrates for those conditions, should not take Viagra, as it can cause a serious drop in blood pressure.
Men with these conditions who know they cannot take Viagra, may be turning to what they see as a “safe,” alternative, only to be putting themselves at a severe health risk. The combination of Viagra and nitrates can actually be fatal.
Furthermore, since these supplements are unregulated, there could be other ingredients in them that can be harmful to all men, whether they are at greater risk from the side effects of sildenafil or not.
Other names of the products targeted by the FDA include: Full Throttle, On Demand, 3 Hard Knights, and SexRx. You can see a complete list of the tainted products on the FDA website.
Despite these warnings, 18 of the products on the list are still being sold online and in retail stores.
It is also important to remind men interested in male enhancement, that these products laced with sildenafil may have a similar effect on ED as Viagra, but like true Viagra, they do nothing to increase penis size.
Real Medical Male Enhancement
Now, all of this is not to say that there is no such thing as a real male enhancement product, or procedure. Or that there are not medically proven, safe and effective alternatives to prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction.
There are — you just have to be very careful to separate the truth from fiction.
- First off, like many claims in the gray areas of sexual wellness, follow your instincts. If something seems too good to be true – like, “gain five inches overnight,” you are probably right!
- Secondly, there are only two clinically proven methods to permanently increase the length and/or girth of your penis — one involves surgery, and the other does not.
The only technique with results comparable to implant surgery involves the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, as in the Gains Enhancement. The Gains Enhancement uses the growth and healing factors in your own blood to rebuild collagen, and stimulate new nerve growth that leads to the desired effects.
The Gains Enhancement
The Gains Enhancement incorporates other safe and effective techniques, with a proprietary blend and male enhancers that increase sexual energy and improve performance. This combination produces real results that take effect quicker, and last longer than other treatments.
The bottom line is, if you are seeking true male enhancement, avoid the scams, rip-offs, and even dangerous products, and seek the sound advice of your medical professional, or use the comments below to contact me directly.
