    Has anyone tried these? My pub has started selling them so I tried one and now I have splitting headache. I think it would make me feel good like cannabis but I feel like my head is going to explode!

    I still have my box, but under "ingredients" there are lots of really long words I have never heard of.

    What is it exactly?



    A 'root' in Australia is a slang word for having sex.



    So, a 'golden root' would be worth talking about.

    Wolfgang

    There is information on this plant on wikipedia (yes I know), under the name "Rhodiola Rosea"

    I would advise not to take drugs of any kind (through bitter personal experience) especially anything casually bought in a pub

    Stay safe....

    That applies to most things you buy.



    Would you buy something if it was labelled as containing acetylsalicylic acid?

    But if it is labelled as aspirin then that's OK



    Golden Root is mainly sold as a herbal version of Viagra. So maybe there is a connection with the Australian usage of the word that David mentioned.



    But why did you buy it? And why did you take it? What did you expect it to do?

    Review: Does Golden Root Complex Work?



    Product Description: Golden Root complex is a unique combination of 15 safe and effective herbs. It is the only herbal Viagra available in UK. Golden Root Complex has become very popular as it is said to be approved by MHRA, a government body who is responsible for safety, quality and performance.



    However, here’s what we found from MHRA’s website: “The MHRA is aware of a number of cases where a product is being sold under the name of “Goldenroot Complex”, promoted as a herbal alternative to Viagra for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, are being incorrectly advertised on the Internet as registered and approved by the MHRA. Any herbal product that is regulated and approved by the MHRA will have a product licence (PL) number or Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) number on the packaging. These herbal products must meet assured standards of safety, quality and patient information. There are no products containing Golden Root (Rhodiola rosea) in the UK licensed or registered for sexual dysfunction.”



    Ingredients Golden Root Complex contains the following: Rhodiola Rosea, Cynomorium Songaricum, Tongkat Ali, Leuzea Carthamoides Ext, Siberian Ginseng Ext, Schisandra Chinensis Ext, Schisandra Chinensis, Muira Pauma, Saw Palmetto, Damiana, Chuchuhuasi, Guarana Seed, Cayenne, Grape Seed Ext, Kwaopet.



    Verdict: No doubt, these ingredients may be helpful to your sexual performance and overall health. However, we are not sure what’s the purity and potency of the ingredients inside Golden Root Complex. In addition, it may not work well on your body.

    All it accomplished for me was that it stopped me going to sleep. Maybe that is what it is supposed to do? But it means my body clock is all messed up now. It does not indicate that it is for sexual dysfunction on my box, and my virility does not need to be enhanced so I doubt I will be buying it again.

    I love Wolfgang's protestations.



    I think some drugs affect your blood pressure leading to headaches but you should be ok with the herbal variety Mr Floppy.

    My "Walkabout" screencaps provide as much inspiration as any man can possibly want.
