The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Consumer alert: Zencore recalled

    The advertisement claims, Zencore Tabs are an all-natural herbal supplement, clinically tested, that enhances male sexual performance. Each tablet contains 22 powerful natural herbs.

    Now, Bodee LLC is recalling it from the market.

    It turns out that somewhere along the line aminotadalafil, an analog of tadalafil (Cialis), found its way into the bottle. The reason is unclear, since the 22 natural herbs are so “powerful.”

    Oops, what’s this? Another lot of Zencore Tabs contained sildenafil (Viagra).

    The bottom line?
    The main problem is that both undeclared chemicals pose a threat to consumers because they may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.
