Firm Recalls Supplements Containing Undeclared Erectile Dysfunction Drug

Jack Distribution is voluntarily recalling certain lots of its Rize 2 The Occasion capsules and Rose 4 Her capsules because they contain an undeclared ingredient similar to the active ingredient of an erectile dysfunction (ED) drug.

An FDA analysis found some lots of the dietary supplements, manufactured and packaged in 2007, contained thiomethisosildenafil, an analog of sildenafil, the active ingredient in Pfizer’s Viagra. This chemical poses a potential threat to consumers because it may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels, the FDA said.

From strippercise to circus-trapeze aerobics, gyms and fitness gurus keep coming up with new ways to make working out less of a chore.

Study Shows Fish Oil Improves Heart Function

Some fish migrate thousands of miles each year. The secret to their marathon abilities could be that fish oil makes the heart stronger.

Recent medical research has shown that it also works for human hearts. In one study, researchers demonstrated that healthy hearts can work better with two important fish oils, docosahexanoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

NZ Rugby Team Considering Calf's Blood Extract for Playoff Push

The Manly Sea Eagles are considering using a controversial calves' blood extract to help boost the endurance of their players in the lead-up to the finals.

The Sea Eagles, who are top of the premiership, have adopted a cutting-edge approach to the use of science in recent years, and an emphasis on altitude training has been credited for their second-half dominance this season.

Under the guidance of physiologist Steve Dank, Manly have led the way in introducing DNA testing of players, GPS tracking to monitor their performances at training, and the use of radical herbal supplements such as the $300 per litre anti-inflammatory product Lact-Away, which is made from the bark of French pine and was initially a racehorse treatment.

Bill C-51: No More Easily Accessible Vitamins and Supplements?

So you want to take Vitamin C, how about if it was illegal to take that vitamin C, what if it was so illegal that you could be thrown in jail for up to 2 years and fined up to $5,000,000! Sounds like fiction doesn't it?
Well it's about to become reality unless people become aware of what is going on. The Canadian Government is trying to pass a bill known as Bill C51. This bill has already passed its second reading and it is flying under the radar, it is very close to becoming law and some powers that be DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW! This bill would give entire control of supplements over to drug companies by only allowing MDs to "Prescribe" them as they see fit. Of course we know here in this country the government controls the doctors and the pharmaceutical companies tell the government what laws they want inorder to make more profit. What this means is that if you want to take a multivitamin or some Omega-3, you have to book an appointment with your doctor, go in and try to convince your doctor that you are in need of these supplements. If you doctor doesn't approve or better yet decides a certain drug would be better off for you then you unfortunately won't have access to your supplements anymore.

On top of this the entire natural supplement industry will collapse on itself, thousands of jobs will be lost and even more stress will be placed on our already crumbing over-stressed medical system. Imagine waiting over a month to get in to see your MD just to request if you can take some oregano oil for a cold that has now come and past, only to have your request denied anyway.

The irony of all this is that MDs who are NOT trained in the use of herbs and supplements for the most part will have full control over what you can and CANNOT TAKE.
