Laboratory analyses found traces of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5 inhibitors) in several of A&H Focal’s dietary supplements.
PDE-5 inhibitors are a class of medications which include the active ingredient in the erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs Viagra and Cialis. This renders the dietary supplements unapproved drugs under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
PDE-5 Inhibitors are dangerous because they may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.
