Hello,

Many of the health supplements contain steroids and creatine which will cause adverse effects to the body including erectile dysfunction. Better not to use them and always seek help from a nutritionist before starting health supplements.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
