Some coffee can help you lose weight and some has properties found in viagara -better don't drink them!


This week, the authorities give warnings and raided on two companies that sells coffee that reportedly has health benefits only found in prescribed drugs.

One coffee in Canada, initially known as the "Lose weight coffee" then now calls itself the slimming coffee contains sibutramine. This drug can help a person to lose weight.

However, this is also a drugs that should only be used under supervision from a health care practitioner, it might caused reactions such as high blood pressure, chest pain and even stroke.

So, if you come across such coffee -do be aware of it and seek medical advice before drinking it.

Then, in another part of the world, Malaysia, they are selling coffee that has properties found in Viagra. This coffee contained sildenafil, a drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction and found in Viagra.

This coffee company added this controlled substance into the coffee to better their selling pitch (they claimed this male boaster properties come from herbal drugs).

The Malaysian authorities found out that this drug is being brought into the country illegally and the company was raided and is now in some legal issue from the State.

So, folks -coffee should be coffee. A drink that is nice to taste, good to drink and gives you some relaxing moment. I think coffee that has medical properties is just so wrong. In fact, I thought I was told that one should not eat medicine with coffee or tea, because the caffeine inside would dilute its properties...
