While everyone has heard of “the birds and the bees,” the Health Ministry has
discredited “Honey Sex” - honey sold in pharmacies and natural food stores that
claims to improve sexual pleasure.
The ministry’s Pharmaceutical Crime
Unit became aware of the illicit, unapproved claim and sent the honey to its
Jerusalem lab. Contrary to the label that says it contains “natural ingredients
only,” the honey was found to include sildenafil – which is the active
ingredient in Viagra, the prescription-only drug for erectile
Taking the drug without a doctor’s prescription can cause
complications in men with cardiac and other problems.
The ministry warned
the public not to use the product, as it is “dangerous and is liable to cause
harm to the public health.”
