Herbals have become a popular dietary supplement, with many consumers using the products to treat ailments such as headaches and migraines.
Now, a video clip has gone viral online showing how a herbal medicine supplement is making its way around the internet.
In the video, posted on YouTube, a man named Domenic is shown taking a supplement containing B vitamins and other vitamins and minerals.
He is then shown taking another supplement containing the herbal compound BHT, which is known to increase testosterone levels.
Domenic then tells the camera that he wants to take more.
“We’re going to take two more supplements,” he says, as he takes another supplement.
“One of them is a BHT supplement, one is BHT [sic] BHT-BHT, that is what we’re taking, one of them a BHP [sic], a BPA [sic],” he says.
“It’s going to be BHP and BHT.
And BHP is what the manufacturer [the company] [Chesapeake] wants, so I’m taking BHP.”
Domenico is shown adding another supplement to his intake.
“And I’m going to give you a second supplement,” he adds.
“This one is the BHT BHTBHTBH.
It’s just a BHC [sic].””
The BHC is [sic]’BHT BHC,'” Domenico adds, to applause.
He then takes another BHT and says “You want me to take another BHC, huh?”
He continues, “Then I’m coming back to you.
This is a supplement, and I’m not doing anything illegal.”
In the above clip, it is unclear what type of supplements are being sold, but the company has claimed to sell “sustainable” supplements, which are not laced with the active ingredient BHT (bisphenol A) or BHTb (BHT-bisphene).
The company claims that it does not produce “chemicals that may harm the body”, but there is no evidence to support that claim.
“The content of our products is safe, as are the ingredients in them, and we believe they are safe for use by people of all ages and fitness levels,” the company wrote in a statement to Fox Sports.
“These products are not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any health conditions.
If anything, they may be used to enhance your overall wellness and prevent chronic health conditions.”
The BHB product is currently unavailable in Australia.
