ARE PHEROMONES SAFE?
This question came to mind early on in my search for a Safe Pheromones. Being that mostly all of these products were sold on the internet made me a little skeptical. 95% of the information available on the internet on Pheromones, is from the Pheromones suppliers themselves and you know THEY will have nothing bad to say about their products. So I found other sources (Science Daily, Wikipedia, Journal of Physiology, Ehow) for my information that was not biased towards Pheromones products. I researched the Pheromones chemicals themselves…androstenone, androstenol, androsterone, androst and androstadienone. These Chemical replications are made in a lab. Most come from China or Europe. Some are derived from Boar and Pig saliva. They are neurosteroids derived from the testosterone metabolism. All androgens, including androsterone, can cause increased blood pressure, increased cholesterol, increased blood glucose levels and increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Additionally, androsterone can lead to acne, infertility, hair loss and shrinking of the testicles in men. This is why THEY ARE NOT APPROVED FOR USE BY THE FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) or the IFRA (International Fragrance Association). They can be absorbed by the blood through application on the skin. Most of the internet suppliers get around these issues selling these Pheromones products because they are made overseas outside of the control of U.S. regulations. So until they get banned you can still get them. There are a few Pheromones providers that make their products in the U.S. and conform to FDA and IFRA standards and derive their scents from approved fragrances rather than using potentially harmful Lab made chemicals. These Safe Pheromones Products are available. Read more at: Side Affects Of “ANDRO” Chemical Steroids.
