The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning stating that consumers should not use or purchase ‘Man King,’ a dietary supplement allegedly designed to promote sexual enhancement. An FDA lab analysis has found that Man King contains undeclared sildenafil, a drug that may interact with nitrates and cause blood pressure to drop to dangerous levels. Sildenafil has been linked to serious side effects including pounding heartbeats, vision changes, trouble breathing, strokes and seizures.

FDA: Beware Dangerous Drugs Masquerading as Dietary Supplements
The FDA warning on Man King is intended to inform consumers that a growing number of companies are marketing so-called ‘dietary supplements’ which contain undeclared or unapproved drugs or chemicals. The vast majority of these products – which are often deemed ‘all natural’ – are marketed for sexual enhancement, weight loss, and body building. Due to the fact that the administration is unable to conduct adequate testing on all such products, consumers are urged to use extreme caution before taking any product in the above categories.
