An MLB spokesperson did not immediately respond to the Daily Mail’s request for comment.

In its memo, the league warned about the risk of consuming such supplements: ‘These products are often contaminated with prohibited and unsafe ingredients.’

‘Sexual or male enhancement products present a very real risk for drug-tested players, and the high likelihood for contamination or unidentified ingredients in these products underscores the importance of consuming only those products that are NSF Certified for Sport,’ the memo read.

For those players who are suffering from ‘erectile dysfunction or other legitimate issues related to sexual performance’ the league suggested that they ‘speak to a licensed physician about the various prescription medications (e.g., Viagra, Cialis, Levitra) available to treat those conditions.’

According to ESPN, the unregulated supplement industry is a $30 billion a year industry. Most famously, ex-NBA star Lamar Odom was left in a coma after using what was described as ‘herbal Viagra’ at a Nevada brothel, but he ultimately recovered.

‘We know from experience,’ read the memo, ‘that a number of these sexual or male enhancement products – which are sold online, at retail stores, and on the black market, both in the United States and internationally – contain anabolic steroids and other prohibited substances.

‘For this reason,’ the memo continued, ‘we strongly urge players against taking any sexual or male enhancement product, from any source.’
