Lamar Odom

It was sad news for all sports lovers when Lamar Odam had a collapse after he reportedly used sexual supplements and cocaine this week. Read on to know the complete story.

Basketball player Lamar Odom’s collapse this week due to use of cocaine and sexual supplements has actually raised the hornet’s nest. It has once again raised a serious debate on how safe the supplements are and whether they can further increase the risks posed by consumption of illegal drugs.

Here is what every man should know about the dangers associated with “Herbal Viagra.”

According to the Food and Drug Administration, though these supplements are popularly referred to as “herbal Viagra,” hinting that they constitute of a more natural form or a safer version of that little blue pill, many of them actually constitute an active ingredient of real Viagra.

Apparently, Odom took supplements known as “Reload 72-hour Strong and Libimax,” according to the statements made by the legal Nevada brothel’s spokesman. The spokesman shared this while speaking to the Associated Press.

Problems are not only limited to Reload and Libimax. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has detected the presence of unidentified ingredients in about 300 sexual supplements.

The FDA has said that these products may also constitute combinations of extremely high doses or undisclosed ingredients that are big threats to human lives.

Though Viagra is costly in the United States of America, it is quite cheap in China where most of these herbal supplements are made. These companies in China make a massive profit as they sell different sexual supplements for merely as a fraction of Viagra’s cost. Viagra is available in a standard dose but these herbal supplements may not have a standard dose of medication.

The FDA has shared that these supplements have hidden ingredients what can even lead to life-threatening risks.

We just hope that all those sportsmen and others who are in the habit of consuming “herbal Viagra,” take a lesson from the fate of Lamar Odom and be cautious with such supplements.
