Extenze Plus: Another Tainted Male Enhancement Supplement

Some time ago, health product regulators in the United States warned about Extenze Plus found to contain hidden, and potentially, unsafe ingredients. That warning was a reminder that extra caution is important when buying supplements, especially those for sexual enhancement, bodybuilding, or weight loss.

Extenze Plus appears to be a popular male enhancement supplement for men who desire stronger and bigger erections. According to its maker, the formulation is 100% herbal and is completely safe to use.

The product is one of those so-called “herbal Viagra.” It aims to work in a similar way as sildenafil (Viagra) while using only natural ingredients. But some of such offerings have been known to contain other, non-natural ingredients that are not disclosed on their labels.

The company making Extenze Plus boasts that it has been proven to be the best for men worldwide. It is made for those in search of cheaper alternatives to prescription drugs and surgical procedures.

FDA warning on Extenze Plus

In August 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a “Public Notification” about Extenze Plus found to contain sildenafil. The ingredient was not disclosed on the label of the supplement.

The American government agency warned the public to desist from buying or using the product as a result of this finding.

Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, is a prescription drug. It is not supposed to be in any dietary supplement that people can buy over the counter. The compound needs to be prescribed by a doctor before anyone uses it to ensure the safety of the user.

Unfavorable interaction between sildenafil and drugs containing nitrates, for instance, could make blood pressure to drop dangerously low. This means people using drugs for blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol control may be at a considerable risk.

The more worrisome thing is that people using such a tainted product will be unaware of these hazards. They will believe that they are using a product containing only natural ingredients.

Protecting yourself

In spite of the FDA warning, Extenze Plus still seems to be somewhat popular among users. This might make some men still want to give it a trial.

Health authorities do not regulate dietary supplements including male enhancement supplements such as Extenze Plus and Vigrx Plus as strictly as they do drugs. As such, they typically do not endorse the products. It is mostly left to the consumer to decide what they think is worthwhile.

It may help for any man who is buying Extenze Plus to buy only from the official website to avoid getting any tainted products. The manufacturer says it can only guarantee a completely genuine product when users purchase directly. There is no assurance of that when buying anywhere else.

The company that makes Extenze Plus does not recommend buying on third-party websites. Customers buying at such places may end up with expired or even fake supplements that contain prescription substances such as sildenafil, according to it.

It does stand to reason to buy directly from the manufacturer. This enables the consumer to be completely sure they got the original product in the event that they experienced an adverse reaction. It may also help when planning to report any side effects to health authorities.
