Treating Low Sex Drive With Herbal Remedies is Unsafe

May 30th, 2014

The online herbal sex supplements have been known to cause serious psychoactive effects and are not recommended to treat low sex drive.

Many men struggle with sexual problems as they age. To overcome problems with low sex drive, they often invest in herbal remedies that are available on the Internet. New research conducted of over 100 online companies suggests that these supplements are not safe. These herbal remedies contain active ingredients that might induce hallucinations, anxiety, addictive behaviors, panic attacks, and/or mood changes.

About Herbal Remedies

Most of the products purchased for low sex drive contain some of these ingredients:

  • Maca
  • Yohimbine
  • Horny goat weed
  • Ginkgo biboba

These four ingredients have psychiatric effects. They often act as a stimulant, and they have been known to cause some men to have manic episodes. Thus, the risks of taking the pill is not worth the short-term pleasure someone might receive.

Increase in Use

During the last few years, there has been a drastic increase in the use of herbal remedies to combat sexual problems. Unfortunately, when people use them, they do not fully understand the risks involved. For example, taking a pill with yohimbine might help the following problems that come with age:

  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Weight loss
  • Sexual performance
  • Body building

Sadly, yohimbine is also known to cause agitation, anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, tachycardia, and hypertension.

Uncontrolled Availability

The Internet also makes these supplements available to anyone who is willing to purchase them. This creates a serious concern for doctors and public health officials. After all, if someone starts using the pills and has adverse reactions, they might not be able to get the care they need. In addition, since many of the side effects are psychiatric in nature, the people taking them can become a threat to others.

Disreputable Companies

Furthermore, the companies that produce these products are disreputable. A lot of them produce their products in foreign countries where they are unregulated by the United States government. Therefore, a cream that is mildly irritating might actually cause problems with your blood flow. It is important for today’s consumers to do their research and use caution before they invest in sexual products.

Safe Options

Since many men want to combat the problems they are experiencing with low sex drive or sexual dysfunction, it is important for them to turn to safe options. Vitamins and minerals are good options to improve your overall health and stimulate your sex drive. In fact, there are specific supplements that are recommended for men that are aging. These are safe and backed by the FDA.
