FDA Warns Not To Use “Magic Power Coffee” – Contains “Horny Goat Weed” Active Ingredient

Posted Jun 21 2010 12:31pm

For a little history here on ED drugs, not too long ago the US Copyright office declined to give Pfizer the trademark on Viagra, saying it was too close to Horney goat weed, and hey if nothing else you have to love the name of this herb.  I had actually mentioned this product as one of the alternatives that people are looking at in image the area of ED.  If you read the link below you will find some other interesting ED alternatives too, like a rabbit who received a penis grown in a Petri with stem cells dish and it worked. 

Now horny goat weed is also being studied in the labs so who knows maybe the goat weed will come under the FDA, as the active ingredient is a”cousin” to the active  ingredient in Viagra.  We just don’t want to take the chances says the FDA on accidentally have a side effect reaction with any of the potential other prescription drugs one may be taking, so no Magic Power Coffee.  BD 

"Horny Goat Weed" Shows Promise In Lab Studies as alternative for Viagra

SILVER SPRING, Md., June 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers that Magic Power Coffee, an instant coffee product marketed as a dietary supplement for sexual enhancement, contains an active drug ingredient that can dangerously lower blood pressure. 

Consumers who have Magic Power Coffee should stop using it immediately.  Sexual enhancement products that claim to work as well as prescription image products are likely to expose consumers to unpredictable risks and the potential for injury or even death.

In the case of Magic Power Coffee, the FDA collected and analyzed the product and determined that the product contains hydroxythiohomosildenafil. This is a chemical similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra.  Hydroxythiohomosildenafil, like sildenafil, may interact with prescription drugs known as nitrates, including nitroglycerin, and cause dangerously low blood pressure. Consumers and health care professionals should be aware of this problem and the health hazard it presents. 

When blood pressure drops suddenly, the brain is deprived of an adequate blood supply, which can lead to dizziness or lightheadedness.

"Because this product is an instant coffee labeled as an 'all natural dietary supplement,' consumers may assume it is harmless and poses no health risk," said Deborah M. Autor, director of FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Office of Compliance.  "In fact, Magic Power Coffee can cause serious harm."
