If you are male, chances are you may have bought sex supplements, i.e Viagra, or even natural viagras such as Tongkat Ali.
Well, consumer demand is never rational.
Whether you are consuming sex supplement pills or sex-enhancing food or candy that promises improvement in your libido, it is a good time to reassess your action.
The market is filled with counterfeits and illegal sex supplements that are destroying our society, morality, and state of health.
Recent news of USD 1 million worth of fake viagras seized by US customs is just the tip of the iceberg.
Despite greater enforcement and strict controls, that does not deter consumers to purchase illegal or fake Viagras online.

Lest we forget, the list of fake viagras, sex supplements, and not forgetting fake natural viagras such as Tongkat Ali is growing each day.
And here is a snapshot.
Almost 70% of the Viagras sold online are fake
A study by Dr. Irwin Goldstein of San Diego Sexual Medicine in California showed that 77% of Viagra samples bought online were counterfeit and contained only between 30% and 50% of the levels of the active ingredients.
Thus searching for an authentic Viagra or natural viagras can often be disappointing.
For natural viagra fans of Tongkat Ali, here is the hard truth.
Almost 70% of Tongkat Ali brands sold in the market today are filled with sawdust, high level of mercury and often mixed with illegal substances such as Viagra or Cialis.

The above is a growing list of fake and illegal sex supplements.
Like it or not, there will be new brands of Tongkat Ali or natural viagras in the market everyday.
The supplement industry is constantly filled with irresponsible sellers who are looking ways to make quick profits in expense of other people’s lives.
And you can stop this by sharing this list and information with others.
Sex enhancing foods contain illegal substances
Please think twice before consuming sex-enhancing candies for recreational purpose.
Sex enhancing foods in the form of candies or chocolate bars can often disguise themselves to avoid detection by authorities.
Hamer Candy was banned by the Singapore Health Authority (HSA) in August 2020 as they found nortadalafil — chemically related to tadalafil, a prescription medicine used to treat male erectile dysfunction.
According to HSA, «the use of nortadalafil may lead to increased risk of serious adverse effects including low blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks»
HSA has issued warnings to the Hamer Candy sellers and directed the respective website administrators to take down the affected listings.

At the same time, the Malaysian Health Ministry has seized Hamer Ginseng & Coffee Candy and is actively monitoring 87 websites selling Hamer candy.
Malaysian impose strict laws and those found guilty can be fined up to RM3,000 or jailed not more than one year, or both.
Despite that, Hamer Candy is still selling actively in China.
Hamer Ginseng & Coffee Candy sold in China. But are the Chinese authorities aware of the ingredients?
Sex enhancer drinks can be dangerous too
Apart from the list of sex supplements that are illegal, sex enhancers these days are available in the form of energy drinks.
Unfortunately, some of these illegal substances can be found in coffee too.
Tongkat Ali coffee is a century-year-old tradition in Malaysia and touted to revitalize health in many ways.
Although Tongkat Ali can be legally sold in the United States due to its scientifically proven health benefits, USFDA is constantly monitoring to ensure that Tongkat Ali products do not contain sildenafil and other illegal substances.

Tongkat Ali coffee brands such as Kopi Jantan was banned by USFDA, as it contained sildenafil — thus giving Tongkat Ali a bad reputation in the global market.
Yes, you can still drink Tongkat Ali coffee in general, but think twice before purchasing any pre-mixed Tongkat Ali coffee brand, or other sex-enhancer drinks.

The dangers of consuming fake or illegal sex supplements
It is widely reported that fake Viagras are detrimental to health.
And here is why.
Any excessive amount of sildenafil or illegal substances can cause contraction of blood capillaries and increase of high blood pressure. This will result in rapid heart movement and can potentially lead to premature death or sudden heart failure.
An Associate Professor Tchoyoson Lim, of the National Neuroscience Institute Singapore, found that the effects of illegal sex drugs can lead to brain damage or death.
Along with the danger, there are side-effects that you may experience:
- Nausea, flushing,
- Heart attack
- Rapid heart beat
- Breathing difficulty
- Blocked nose
- Blurry vision or sensitivity towards lights
Bottom Line - Research Before You Buy
The growing list of fake viagras and sex supplements is a worrying trend. We, therefore, encourage consumers to research more about the brand or product before buying.
Look out for tell-tale or warning signs such as “excessive marketing claims on health benefits” which are not substantiated by credible research papers or links to credible sources, or poorly written /designed websites.
Worst still if there is no contact person on the website that you can refer to.
Make no mistake in your future purchase!
We believe in promoting transparency and education to others on Tongkat Ali to fulfill your health objectives. Only pure authentic Tongkat Ali can deliver the greatest benefits without jeopardizing your health.
