Plenty of you out there power up every day with energy drinks under the assumption that the ingredients are all natural. The usual ingredients in most energy drinks include things like B vitamins, caffeine, and lots of sugar. But according to a report on the Guardian, an popular energy drink in in Zambia, Africa has been banned after it was tested and found to contain sildenafil citrate AKA Viagra - the popular blue pill that aids in sexual performance by combating erectile dysfunction .
Natural Power Energy Drink SX is a popular drink among Zambian men which is sold mostly in supermarkets and bars. The drink is also sold throughout Africa. The drink came under the scope of the Uganda National Drug Authority after drinkers reported unusual and unexpected reactions. One man reported an erection that lasted nearly six hours. Officials tested the drink and confirmed the presence of Viagra, then ordered that the company stop producing the drink until quality control issues could be addressed.
If only we could get this stuff here in the United States. Maybe EBay?
