It turns out that this widely advertised product is not as “natural” as its manufacturer claims.

Bodee LLC is recalling it after being informed by the FDA that it contains benzamidenafil, a PDE5 inhibitor.

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Benzamidenafil is likely to have the same pharmacological properties as the other 3 PDE5 inhibitors, sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra), which are FDA-approved drugs for erectile dysfunction.

Using Levitra as an example, here are side effects and precautions associated with taking a PDE5 inhibitor.
