Lamar Odom's 'Natural' Erection Supplement Probably Contained Actual Viagra

Lamar Odom's

Lamar Odom came off life support and regained consciousness today after collapsing while visiting a brothel in Nevada. The apparent culprit(s), according to the Nye County sheriff: cocaine combined with 10 tabs of natural "sexual performance enhancer supplements" -- a.k.a. "herbal Viagra." But it's possible those supplements secretly contained the real deal. And it nearly cost Odom his life.

Normally, erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra and Cialis are only available by prescription, and there's a good reason for that: the active ingredients can have some serious side effects when combined with other drugs. And when you have no idea you're taking them, it's hard to plan around potential drug interactions.

That's the trouble with so many of these "natural" herbal products: they may contain things that aren't on the label, because they're not subject to same set of rigorous protocols and regulations as prescription drugs. In fact, FDA tests have found that a lot of these companies touting alternative herbal remedies for erectile dysfunction are spiking their herbal erection enhancers with actual Viagra.

Odom purportedly used a brand of supplement called Reload, which triggered an FDA warning in 2013 after it turned out to be just regular Viagra. And it's not the only shady "herbal Viagra" supplement out there. This year alone, FDA tests found prescription ED drugs in the following herbal erectile enhancement products.
