Gum has long been used for a lot of things: fresh breath, hunger suppressant, quitting smoking.
What about sex?
Well thanks to an Opa Locka company, there's a whole lot of chewing going on.
Meet Sexlets Gum, whose makers claim it enhances male libido and performance.
"It's an antioxidant, testosterone booster blood stimulator, energizer," said Tommy Babil, the man behind the gum. "As soon as you chew the gum and bite into it, it releases all these natural ingredients which are instantly absorbed into the body through the capillaries."
Sexlets are not a FDA approved prescription drug like Viagra or Cialis, they're a berrymint flavored, all-natural blend of herbal supplements.
So what exactly is in a piece of the gum? According to the back of the box, some of the active ingredients include Ginseng, Vitamin E and herbs called Yohimbe Bark, which have been used for male enhancement for hundreds of years.
"It's been around for a long, long time, used by American Indians I believe, and it does increase the blood flow to the penis," Samowitz said, adding that there are side effects. "The Yohimbe has been know to affect blood pressure."
Babil, 37, has been in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry for 10 years. He first started producing the herbal blend in capsules and last year turned it into gum.
His factory produces about a million pieces of the stimulating gum a month to keep up with demand.
"We suggest you take three pieces of gum a day," Babil explained.
But the real question is, does the gum work?
"That's the real question, you know even a placebo has a powerful effect," Dr. Samowitz said. Though he doesn't endorse the product, Samowitz believes some men could benefit from chomping on the gum, adding that it's probably safe if it isn't overused.
But before you pop one in your mouth, take note: there's one ingredient that might make you a bit squeamish.
"Orchic powder, and they don't talk a lot about it but that is ground up testicles," Samowitz said.
