The Zambian authorities have reportedly banned an energy drink, known as ” Power Natural High Energy Drink SX”., which is made in Zambia.

This comes after a Ugandan man complained that it had caused him to have a prolonged erection.

Power Natural High Energy Drink SX, which is made in Zambia, is not marketed as a sexual aid, but an investigation by Ugandan health authorities in December revealed that the beverage contained sildenafil citrate – the active ingredient in Viagra.

Since then, news of the drink’s side-effects has reportedly boosted its popularity.

According to the BBC, in Lusaka, there has been increased demand for the soft drink, which is sold in supermarkets and by street vendors across the country.

Despite the ban, the drink is still on sale in shops in the capital, Lusaka. The packaging on the drink clearly states that it “increases libido” and is an “aphrodisiac”.

It also claims to “revitalize the body and mind”.

Viagra is the brand name of sildenafil citrate, the medication used to treat erectile dysfunction. It is normally only available on prescription.

Meanwhile, the drink’s manufacturer, Revin Zambia, has not commented on the ban.
