MLB issued a hard warning to its players this week: Stay away from petrol station sex tablets.
According to multiple reports, Major League Baseball sent a memo on Monday warning about the”very real threat” of over-the-counter sexual enhancement pills, after at least two players have blamed them for favorable PED evaluations so far this season.
The memo, that was obtained by ESPN, says the pills in question are often contaminated with prohibited and unsafe ingredients including anabolic steroids.
It reminded players that anyone who tests positive for a banned substance is subject to discipline by the league — no matter how it got into their system.
Based on ESPN sources, players use these supplements so often the team felt compelled to send the memo and warn players of their risks.
Male or male enhancement products present a very real danger of drug-tested players the memo stated, and the high likelihood for contamination or unidentified ingredients in those products underscores the importance of consuming only those products that are NSF Certified for Sport.
The memo also suggested that any players who suffer from erectile dysfunction or other legitimate issues related to sexual performance… talk to a certified physician about the a variety of prescription medications (e.g., Viagra, Cialis, Levitra) available to deal with those conditions.
The memo did not reveal which two players blamed their positive tests on the pills.
