There’s a new coffee on the market that promises to perk you up more than any other on the market – it allegedly gives any one who sips it an erection.

The instant brand, appropriately called Stiff Bull, comes from the jungles of Malaysia and allegedly produces effects that “last up to 2 to 3 days”.

“Stiff Bull is an all-natural herbs Coffee that contains a propriety blend of ingredients such as – Tongkat Ali, Maca Root, and Guarana,” a description reads on the official website.

“These Herbs grow wild in the jungles of Malaysia and have been used for centuries by the people of Asia and South America to greatly improve sexual health, libido, and overall wellness.”

All sounds great if you’re after the alertness and stamina to go the distance, but Stiff Bull has reportedly fallen foul of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the US.

Men’s Journal reports that the FDA has advised consumers not to buy the coffee because it contains a hidden ingredient not listed on the packaging.

A lab analysis from UPI discovered the rouge, unlisted ingredient, called desmethyl carbodenafil – the same active ingredient found in Viagra.

“This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels,” the FDA said.

Viagra can also cause a drop in blood pressure – resulting in dizziness, chest pains and blurred vision – but the drug requires a prescription from your doctor.

So if you find yourself tempted to buy this particular brand of herbal coffee, know that you’re potentially heading for trouble.
