Too bad Groupon made them post their ingredient list. They gave away their secret ingredient: Horny goat weed. Yes, it's a real thing. WebMD says:
"How does it work? Horny goat weed contains chemicals which might help increase blood flow and improve sexual function. It also contains phytoestrogens, chemicals that act somewhat like the female hormone estrogen, that might reduce bone loss in postmenopausal women." So maybe this is meant for women? I wondered, so I looked at a webpage that shows the side of the label that Groupon does not. It says:
"Warnings: Do recommended for female consumption." Yes, I typed that in right. That's the funny thing about supplements that people make themselves, rather than drugs that the FDA monitors. You can write odd things like that.
I have confirmed with a company that tests supplements that they have NOT certified this Monster Test product, despite what the company claims.
If a company lies and says that they are "are Certified Drug Free by the Banned Substance Control Group," but are not, logic dictates that they are more likely to contain banned substances and that their other claims are also lies.
Consumer Reports just did a report on supplements, and how bad many are. DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER TAKING A SUPPLEMENT FROM A COMPANY WITHOUT FULLY UNDERSTANDING THE COMPANY THAT MAKES IT, WHAT THE PRODUCT CONTAINS, AND WHAT IT REALLY DOES.
