Men’s Supplements For Treating Sexual Dysfunction Are Bogus, Even Toxic

January 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. urologists who reviewed scientific studies on dietary supplements claiming to improve men’s sexual health concluded that some showed promise, but still lacked evidence from clinical trials. Others not only did not improve sexual dysfunction, they were harmful, impure or weak. Some that claimed they were “natural” actually contained traces of the same chemicals – PDE5Is – used in Viagra and similar products. One study found that 81 percent of tested samples of over-the-counter products purchased in the U.S. and Asia contained PDE5Is. Another study found that the widely-used ingredient fenugreek was beneficial in terms of improving sexual arousal and orgasm, and was shown to be safe.
