Singapore: HSA Warns Against Consuming Four Illegal Sexual Enhancement Products Containing Undeclared Potent Chemical Ingredients
The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) is alerting members of the public not to consume four illegal sexual enhancement products. The four products are 'MR ZACK POWERBRO', 'SPARTA X', 'MAGIC PENIS' and UNLABELLED DARK GREEN CAPSULES. HSA’s laboratory tests found the four products to contain sildenafil and various analogues (chemically-related compounds) of sildenafil, including propoxyphenyl hydroxyhomosildenafil, propoxyphenyl aildenafil, propoxyphenyl thiohydroxyhomosildenafil propoxyphenyl thioaidenafil and propoxyphenyl sildenafil. These illegal products may cause serious adverse effects including loss of vision and hearing, strokes and heart attacks.

They were found to be sold locally and two of these products, MR ZACK POWERBRO’ and ‘SPARTA X’, were sold through the Internet. ‘MR ZACK POWERBRO’ was touted for men’s health while the products ‘SPARTA X’ and ‘MAGIC PENIS’ claimed to maintain male stamina and improve sexual performance respectively. The unlabelled dark green capsules were packaged in blister packs without indicating the name of the product, ingredients or strength of the capsules. ‘MR ZACK POWERBRO’, ‘SPARTA X’ and ‘MAGIC PENIS’ were labelled to contain only natural herbal ingredients.

Members of the public who are consuming these illegal sexual enhancement health products are strongly advised to: stop consuming these products immediately and seek medical attention if they feel unwell or are concerned about their health.

Please refer to the following website in HSA for details:

In Hong Kong, the above products are not registered pharmaceutical products.
