FDA Warns of Another Tainted Male Enhancement Product
Back in early December of 2014, I reported on two so-called “male enhancement products” – Weekend Warrior and O.M.G. that were actually tainted with sildenafil – the active ingredient in Viagra.
Here we are not even at the end of January 2015, and that demon has once again reared its ugly head. A similar report has just been released by the FDA on another “harmless herbal supplement” – this one known as Happy Passengers.
It is available on Amazon, and other websites, and even on the shelves of respectable retail stores. This has been an increasing trend among these so-called “all natural” or herbal male enhancement supplements.
What Are The Risks?
That these products are tainted with a prescription medication is cause for concern for several reasons. First of all, obviously anyone who is taking such a product as a “natural” alternative to prescription medication is being duped. But more importantly, Happy Passengers, and products like it claim to be safe “for all men, of all ages.”
That is a dangerous lie. Viagra and similar ED drugs are not prescribed to men with certain health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or taking nitrates for heart disease. Sildenafil can be harmful, even fatal, to such men.
This is very upsetting, as these are the very men who may be drawn to such “alternatives” if they believe they are not candidates for the prescription medications.
The FDA does not as of yet have any official report of deaths or injuries related to the taking of Happy Passengers, but warns, “consumers should stop taking Happy Passengers and dispose of the product immediately. If you have experienced an adverse event, contact your doctor. Possible negative side effects, which would be similar to those when combining Viagra with nitrate medications, may include dizziness, fainting and even heart attack or stroke.”
The Real Deal on ED Treatments and Penis Enlargement
Do not let this latest news about yet another dangerous erectile dysfunction treatment lead you to believe that ALL such treatments are bogus at best, and hazardous to your health at worst.
It just means you must be that much more vigilant. Just as the rise in popularity of the internet and mobile communications attracts hackers, scammers, and identity thieves – our aging population attract dubious marketers of male enhancement products.
But not every claim made about a male enhancement product or procedure is false. There are medically proven, safe and effective alternatives to prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction. You must now be particularly on your guard to separate the facts from the myths.
Remember to listen to your gut instincts. If something is cheap, available without coming from a doctor or other medical professional, and it seems too good to be true, you are probably right.
Here is the truth. Number one, even the proven Oral ED medications only improve your ability to get and maintain an erection. Viagra does not, and cannot increase the size of your penis.
Secondly, despite what you may have heard about this pill, pump, or cream, 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 penal implant surgery involves the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, as in the Gains Enhancement. The Gains Enhancement uses the stem cells and the growth factors in your own blood to not only improve your ability to gain an erection by increasing blood flow to the penis, but adds inches just where you want them by stimulating the growth of new cells. The Gains Enhancement therefore is the only ED treatment that can provide both a cure for ED, and an increase in penis size.
The bottom line is, you can obtain real male enhancement, but only by steering clear of the rip-offs, scams, and even unsafe products.
