‘Natural sex aid’ contains Viagra

Viagra's main ingredient, Sildenafil, has proven highly effective in helping men to battle erectile dysfunction.

But some supposedly 'herbal' impotence remedies are being produced that include the ingredient without mentioning it on the packaging; one of which called 'Vigor-25', and this drug is now being blamed for the death of a 26 year old man in America.

The Food and Drug Administration believe that the young man may well have been killed by the ingredient.

Sildenafil can lower blood pressure to dangerous levels when it mixes with other prescription drugs. Any legitimate providers of Viagra warn about this, and only offer the drug to people who are not taking other medications, and do not already have a low blood pressure.

The FDA is now warning men away from Vigor-25 and other herbal alternatives to Viagra.

If you are suffering from impotence, and want to treat this condition, the most effective and safe options are Viagra and the other erectile dysfunction treatments, Levitra and Cialis.

Viagra is the most tried and tested anti-impotence drug available. It has been on the market since 1998 and has garnered billions of pounds in profit for its manufacturer Pfizer, who recently even approved a film about the medication called 'Love and Other Drugs'. The romantic comedy, based on the memoirs of real-life Viagra salesman James Reidy, is out now.
