Why Not to Trust Gas Station Sex Enhancement Pills
You’ve probably seen those gas station sex pills promising amazing results. Still, as a board-certified urologist, Dr. Jed Kaminetsky points out that studies have shown that these unregulated pills contain some dangerous ingredients and can be extremely harmful to your health.
Most people have gone into a gas station and looked over the counter to see these strange pills that look almost comically fake. Pills with names such as Krazzy Rhino, Gold Rhino, Platinum Rhino, the list goes on. Unfortunately, it’s no joke you’re seeing – these are actual pills sold over the counter and at many gas stations across the United States. You would think that buying a pill at a gas station would be illegal, and even if it’s legal, people wouldn’t spend hard-earned money on these types of supplements, would they?
On the contrary, many people choose to continue to purchase these enhancement pills without knowing just how truly dangerous they are. It’s important to stay educated on what these pills are, claim to do, and how to avoid them and use natural ways to make an erection last longer and boost your stamina.
What Do Gas Station Sex Pills Do?
These sex pills vary widely in their claims, some of which are quite outlandish. However, for the most part, these pills claim to:
- Sustain an erection longer
- Improve stamina and performance
- Improve sensation of the penis
- Make the penis larger
More importantly, these sex pills claim to do all of these things using only natural ingredients. This means that you might find these pills not only in the gas station but also on websites like Amazon and all over the internet. Generally, if it’s not prescribed and doesn’t claim to list any other types of ingredients besides “all natural ones,” these types of pills are unregulated by the FDA.
Why Doesn’t the FDA Regulate Them? Doesn’t that make them Safe?
Some people might think that because these pills aren’t regulated, they must be safe. On the contrary, the FDA’s jurisdiction falls outside of regulating dietary supplements like male enhancement pills. These dietary supplements claim to use all-natural ingredients to supplement the body’s nutrition, or in this case, help promote better sex and stamina.
Why Not to Trust Gas Station Sex Pills
For starters, you should never ingest any type of pill that hasn’t been prescribed to you by a doctor or fully examined. This is especially true of male enhancement gas station pills. Studies on these pills have shown that many of them contain the chemicals Sildenafil and Thiosildenafil.
These are compounds that are the main ingredients in drugs such as Cialis and Viagra, two of the most famous drugs on the market to improve erections and help older men or men with certain conditions sustain an erection for longer. However, there’s a reason that these types of powerful drugs are only available by prescription.
Both Thiosildenafil and Sildenafil have the potential to negatively interact with blood pressure medication. If someone has high blood pressure, their doctor will generally provide them with medication to help them lower their blood pressure. This medication works by thinning out the blood and widening blood vessels to help reduce blood pressure.
However, when these medications are combined with male enhancement drugs, a man might experience a dangerously low drop in blood pressure. This can lead to signs and symptoms such as:
- Difficulty concentration
- Shallow breathing
Having low blood pressure is scary for anyone, but can be made even worse for older men that are experiencing issues with performance. That’s why it’s important to get a doctor’s approval before getting a prescription for Viagra or Cialisis, or any other erection-improving drug. Your doctor will understand your risks and determine if this type of prescription is right for you.
What Ingredients Do Help with Erection?
There are several ingredients popular on the market today that might be a little better for increasing performance. Again, these dietary supplements are not regulated by the FDA, so there’s no telling what types of ingredients are truly inside of these supplements or whether or not they truly contain what they say they do. For this reason, it’s best to stick to natural foods that can increase testosterone, which can in turn help increase libido and sex drive. You might also hear these foods referred to as aphrodisiacs, which are used to help boost the sexual drive.
These foods include:
- Red meat
Other Ways to Improve Performance
Besides these foods and using prescription medication, there are other tips and tricks you can use to boost your sex drive, stay healthy, and also get back into the mood for better health overall.
Exercise is one of the best tools for overall improved health. More importantly, exercise can help naturally boost testosterone, send feel-good chemicals to get you into the mood, and keep you healthy so you can have the stamina to perform. Exercising is always a good idea even for older men.
Kegels are another tool you can use to improve the functioning of your pelvic floor muscles, which start and stop your urination. To perform Kegels, tighten up the muscles in your groin area and hold it for 5 to 10 seconds. Let go and repeat 10 times, and you’ll find that you have a better feeling down there as well as better stamina.
Use Delay Sprays
Delay sprays or wipes are now commonly used to decrease the sensation of the penis, so you can last longer with a partner. By decreasing the sensation, not only can you improve your performance, but you also have the ability to truly enjoy sex more and help your partner achieve orgasm (which takes a bit longer to do in women than in men).
Although they might seem innocent, gas station pills are never a good option. Instead, follow our tips above to experience better stamina in a truly natural way
