According to Reuters Health, a highly regarded medical resource:
"It should be strongly noted that alternative or natural
remedies are not regulated and their quality is not publicly controlled. In addition, any substance that can affect the body's
chemistry can, like any drug, produce side effects that may be harmful. There have been a number of reported cases of serious
and even lethal side effects from so-called natural products.
For example, some products are marketed for improving
sexual function (Verve, Jolt) that contains gamma-butyrolactone (GBL). This substance can convert to a chemical that can cause
toxic and life-threatening effects, including seizures and even coma.
In addition, some so-called natural remedies
have been found to contain standard prescription medication. Most problems reported occur in herbal remedies imported from
Asia, with one study reporting a significant percentage of such remedies containing toxic metals. Even if studies report positive
benefits, most, to date, are very small. In addition, the substances used in such studies are, in most cases, not what are
being marketed to the public.
The Food and Drug Administration has a program called MEDWATCH for people to report
adverse reactions to untested substances, such as herbal remedies and vitamins (call 800-332-1088)."
