“Products falsely marketed as ‘dietary supplements’ or ‘foods’ that promise to enhance your sexual performance or increase sexual stimulation might contain hidden drug ingredients or other undisclosed ingredients — and can endanger your health,” said the FDA back on October 1.

Herbal supplements promising sexual performance enhancement are easily bought over the counter. Manufacturers advertise them as effective and less expensive alternatives to FDA approved enhancement drugs such as Viagra. Since they are supplements, they do not require FDA approval, but that hasn’t stopped the agency from speaking out against the “all natural” supplements.

“We’ve seen pills, coffees, chewing gum and dissolvable oral strips that contain hidden drug ingredients or untested chemicals,” a spokesperson for the FDA said following the October 1 statement. The FDA has conducted lab tests which revealed that more than 300 herbal supplements contain hidden drug chemicals that can be found in other prescription drugs.

Consumers can easily be misled by false advertising labels such as “all natural” and “herbal,” which may falsely lead buyers to believe that there aren’t any potentially harmful ingredients. The FDA has called out specific products, Plant Vigra and Herb Viagra, after finding they both contain sildenafil, which is one of the active ingredients in the prescription drug Viagra.
