FDA Warns That Ninja Mojo and “Love Rider” Not Really “Harbal”

By on April 5, 2013

Over the counter male potency products Ninja Mojo and Love Rider in fact contain regulated pharmaceuticals as active ingredients.  Ninja Mojo, advertised as an “harbal” product, contains tadalafil, the active ingredient in prescription drug Cialis.  Love Rider also contains tadalafil, which can interact with other prescription and non-prescription drugs and should only be taken when prescribed by a doctor.

This is the latest action by the FDA against similar products advertised as natural cures, a problem the FDA says is growing: “This notification is to inform the public of a growing trend of dietary supplements or conventional foods with hidden drugs and chemicals.”

The products, typically promoted for weight loss, bodybuilding and sexual enhancement, can be dangerous, as they are unregulated, can have severe side effects and may be made at facilities with laxer standards than the FDA requires of pharmaceutical companies. The FDA warns that consumers should exercise caution when considering weight loss, sexual enhancement, and similar over the counter products.
