killer


In the absence of the Viagra/Cialis alternative, N-Hanz that the Malaysian researchers have reported to have developed last year using walnuts, the only available walnut-based anti-erectile dysfunction solutions should be those from China, one of which was exhibited in last year’s Canton Fair.

Yesterday, the Singapore Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has issued a warning against a product called ‘Power 1 Walnut’. The name of the product must have misled ignorant sexually dysfunctional people into thinking that it contains natural herbal ingredients, not knowing that this Power 1 Walnut contains 2 potent ingredients, glibenclamide and sildenafil which can be deadly if mishandled. These 2 are strict prescription medicines – glibenclamide is used for treating diabetes and sildenafil is the drug found in Viagra which treats impotency.

Power 1 Walnut’, supposedly manufactured by a company in Guangzhou, China is one of the 36,000 illegal sexual enhancement pills seized by police and HSA 2 evenings ago.

At the time of the report by ChannelNews Asia, 6 male people who had consumed ‘Power 1 Walnut’ suffered a serious adverse reaction, resulting in hypoglycaemia (very low blood sugar levels) and if untreated in time, could lead to unconsciousness, seizures and sometimes death. Although the 6 patients were discovered and treated, one of them is critically ill and is under close observation in a hospital.

HSA founded that this ‘wonder‘ pill is more like a diabetes drug than a sexual enhancement one as it contains 90mg of glibenclamide – about 5 times the amount prescribed to a diabetic patient – and only 7mg of sildenafil, far below the 25mg to 100mg needed for any sexual enhancement effect.

This kind of unscrupulous company who“挂羊头卖狗肉” (displays goat’s head but sells dog’s meat) should be severely punished as it again also tarnishes the reputation of honest manufacturers and also other decent “Made in China” brands of health enhancement products.

10 things about the killer Constipation that I’ve learned 

Constipation in the past to me was just about the inability to pass motions smoothly, or in the crude language, inability to shit successfully in the toilet. 

My ignorance and indifference ceased when I have to understand this as part of the learning about our Good Image Tea, the unique tea which proves to resolve and prevent constipation, apart from its ability to detoxify the body particularly the gastro-intestinal system, promote metabolism, escalates toxin removal, enhances complexion and swiftly remove excess fats. 

Besides fats, constipation is what I keep hearing. Now, I have learned 10 things about not messing with constipation. 

(1) Constipation is not just about the problem of having hard stools or problems in passing stools, Constipation can also be defined as having fewer bowel movements than usual. It is a symptom and not a disease. 

(2) It is one symptom that no one particularly the older folks wants to admit or talk openly about. Doctors especially in the
U.S. probably knew best since it is the most common gastrointestinal complaint there clocking about 2 million patient visits annually.
 

(3) 1 in 2 women suffers from constipation, I read in one brochure on constipation.  Elsewhere, on the net, we can read that older people are more likely than younger people to become constipated. 

(4) 80% of
New York women constipated.
This is what a doctor author wrote in his book about the amusing
New York women protest in 1994 demanding the government heath department to address the constipation issue plaguing women. According to the 1991 National Health Interview Survey, about 4 1/2 million people in the
United States say they are constipated most or all of the time.
 

(5) Constipation is the weight that even the strongest man in the world will not be able to force out easily. For those who have constipated, you will know what I meant? 

(6) Constipation can be the worst nightmare and it is better off getting pregnant than constipated. This is what one blogger wrote about her ordeal of “Numbness, pain, sometimes balance loss or limping, insomnia” “after two days of not normal toilet visits”. “The soonest it ends everything goes back to ‘normal’”. 

 

(7) What shocked me is that constipation can be the cause that resulted in stroke or heart attack. 

I recalled about people who died in their sleep or died sitting in their sofa, car, etc. Postmortem showed that they died of stroke or heart attack. But to think it can also be due to constipation is surprising. 

During my recent trip to
China with my factory boss, we met our partners and friends about packaging our Good Image Tea.
 

They told me that it will be extremely dangerous for those who had constipation and yet do not know that they have high blood pressure or brain tumor. If they decide to force the stools out, the prolonged strain will naturally cause the blood pressure to shoot up which might trigger a stroke or heart attack. 

Even if the person does not have a heart attack, straining oneself while holding one’s breath to force out the stools can cause the haemorrhoidal blood pressure to increase. The rough dry faeces might cause abrasions and rupture the surrounding tissues of the anus and thus cause bleeding, painful defecation and stress. 

(8) The hard stools that causes constipation is at the front and is just 3 to 5 cm long while the rest following that are soft or watery. 

(9) The large intestine (colon) which is about 1.5 meters long receives the waste from the small intestine at about 10 cm per hour. It compresses the waste and absorbs the water before the solid waste or stools reach the anus. If the stools are stuck at the anus for too long, it will lead to the hardening of the stools starting from the front. Just imagine that if we eat and eat and do not pass out the stools in 15 hours, the whole large intestine will be jammed. 

(10) No wonder the Chinese has a saying that “一日不排便,毒胜三包烟” which means that if one does not discharge stools from the body every day, its toxin in the body is worst than smoking three packages of cigarettes.
