Beware of Adulteration of “Herbal Supplements” for Erectile Dysfuntion

We recently performed an analysis of a competitive product for a company working on developing “herbal supplements” for erectile dysfunction. They ended up not paying for the analysis so we thought we would just publish it generically as a “point of interest”. It was described to us that the product worked incredibly well which immediately made it suspicious … NB: we didn’t actually try it out ourselves. The bottom line is that the product was not “herbal” at all .. it was thiosildenafil an analog of Viagra.

“Herbal Supplement”

Viagra

Stacked comparison plot.

Beware out there. If you are on alpha-blockers for heart condition and buy an innocent looking “herbal” for ED issues .. it may actually be pharmaceutical grade viagra with all the use warnings that go with it.
