Is Irexis Male Enhancement Pill Too Potent? The EFSA Says Yes

Popular U.S. made male enhancement pill Irexis has been restricted from sale in the UK, Canada and Europe for its too potent formulation.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, October 3, 2013 / -- Irexis male enhancement pill, a popular brand in the USA and one of the longest sellers of natural sex pills since 2004, is restricted from sale in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Canada, Australia and New Zealand because it contains too potent a formulation for the key ingredient Yohimbe.

Yohimbe is not restricted in the US, and has a fairly good safety record. The US Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act (DSHEA regulates supplements in the US) states that substances found in nature can be used in supplements until they are deemed unsafe. Few harmful side effects have been reported in the US for yohimbe.

In the UK, Canada and Europe, there is a penchant for banning many substances that aren't proven dangerous. Many popular vitamins and minerals sold in the US are also prohibited in Europe. The EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) recently reviewed (July2013) the safety in use of yohimbe bark and preparations originating from Yohimbe (Pausinystalia yohimbe (K. Schum.) The Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources added to Food (ANS) recognized preparations obtained from the bark of Yohimbe have been traditionally used in West Africa as general tonic, a performance enhancer for athletes and as an aphrodisiac.

Yohimbine, the major alkaloid of yohimbe bark and raubasine, another alkaloid occurring in lower concentrations in the bark, are used as active ingredients in a number of medicinal products. The ANS panel reviewed the available scientific data on possible associations between the intake of yohimbe bark and its preparations and potential harmful effects on health. The Panel concluded that according to the Guidance on safety assessment of botanicals and botanical preparations the chemical and toxicological characterization of yohimbe bark and its preparations for use in food (supplements) are not adequate to conclude on their safety; thus they could not provide advice on a daily intake of yohimbe bark and its preparations.

No traditional medicinal products containing yohimbe bark and its preparations appear to be authorized or registered in the EU, and an assessment report on the safety and efficacy of this botanical is not available or currently expected from the Committee on Herbal Medicinal Products (HMPC) of the European Medicines Agency. In the UK, neither yohimbe nor its constituent alkaloids are scheduled, however, while they are not widely available at retail they may be purchased from Internet vendors based in the USA or elsewhere.

Yohimbe bark (herbal) is not to be confused with Yohimbine HCL which is the medicinal form of yohimbine. Yohimbe as an herbal extract is an over-the-counter product widely available in health food shops; however, yohimbine HCl in pill form is a prescription-only medicine sold under the trade name Yocon.

Irexis male enhancement pills are formulated with herbal yohimbe and the company reports no customers have reported any harmful effects. Some users may experience minor, but not dangerous reactions which may include headache, nausea, insomnia, anxiety, or diarrhea in much the same way as an overdose of caffeine.
