The Anmat prohibited some pills to improve sexual performance

The National Administration of Medicines, Food and Medical Technology (Anmat) prohibited the commercialization throughout the country of as pills to improve sexual performance. It did so after a consumer reported that the tablets caused a “rapid rise in blood pressure.”

This is the article “All Natural Herbal Supplements, marca Shelex – Male Sexual Enhancement, 8 Capsule, Distributed by American Nutraceutical Technology Inc., El Monte, CA 91731, USA”. As detailed in Provision 447/2022, published this Friday in the Official Gazette, “it lacks product and establishment authorization, consequently turning out to be an illegal product.”

“Because it is a product that cannot be reliably and clearly identified as produced, processed and/or fractionated in a specific establishment, it cannot be produced anywhere in the country, nor marketed or sold in the territory of the Republic” explains the rule.

The investigation that led to the banning of the product began with a complaint from a consumer, who warned that “Intake of the investigated product would have caused a rapid increase in blood pressure.”

The label of the product details that it is used for “improving the sexual performance of men”, and warns that care should be taken if mixed with alcohol, that more doses than recommended should not be consumed, and that it should be kept out of the reach of children.

Other drug prohibited

On the other hand, Anmat prohibited the use, commercialization and distribution throughout the national territory of all batches and presentations, until it is registered in the Registry of Medicinal Specialties, of the following product: “BAO JI WAN GINSENG FORTE, GINSENG. Manufactured by: GUANGZHOU WANGLAOJI PHARMACEUTICAL CO. LTD, CHINA. Imported by: GLOBAL PHARMACEUTICAL CORPORATION SAC, Calle Fray Luis de León 479, San Borja, Lima, Peru and by TRADING INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION for Latin America”.

Through Provision 448/2022, the agency explained that it is a drug, but there are no product registration records in the Registry of Medicinal Specialties (REM) of this National Administration with the trade name BAO JI WAN GINSENG FORTE. “Therefore, -they say- it is not possible to determine if it was prepared in the circumstances indicated by the law and what its true composition is.”
