Hello...

Both Butea Superba and Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa are safe to have.

Both are commonly used for male sexual problems.

There is no much documented scientific evidence of any adverse reaction as well as drug interaction were reported.

Since both the herbs are not like medicine, and a food supplement, the chances of interaction will be least significant...however, kindly maintain one hour gap between your modern drugs and the herbal supplement intake.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
