Herbal Viagra Alternative Works -- at Least on Rats

continued...

Not everyone, including Lue, is convinced that BetterMAN is the answer to men's woes. "I believe Viagra is still the drug of choice, "says Lue, who also involved in a clinical trial of Viagra. "However, if a patient doesn't want Viagra and asks for herbal alternatives, I will tell him about it."

Muta M. Issa, MD, an assistant professor of urology at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, compliments the study on its methodology, but tells WebMD the results are "too preliminary" to offer any advice to humans.

"The study is done with rats -- different animal, different species," he says. "It's quite literally there to give someone an idea, if they want to investigate, take it to the next step. Whether [the herbal formula] is promising or not is difficult to say."
