Nite Rider capsulespose a serious risk to your health and should not be taken.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested Nite Rider capsules and found that:
they contain the undeclared prescription substance yohimbine,despite the product label claim that it is 100% Natural
consumers are advised that yohimbine is a prescription-only substance, and a prohibited import under Customs law. There are currently no products included in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) containing the substance yohimbine.
as the product contains an undeclared prescription substance, it is considered to be a risk to people consuming it without medical supervision.
The supply of Nite Rider capsulesis illegal.
Nite Rider capsuleshave not been assessed by the TGA for quality, safety or efficacy as required under Australian legislation, and the place of manufacture is not approved by the TGA.
TGA investigations have shown that a number of people in Australia have bought the product online.
Information for consumers

Action the TGA is taking
The TGA is working with Australian Customs and Border Protection Services (Customs) to help stop future shipments of Nite Rider capsules from entering Australia.
If these capsules are found at the border by Customs they will be seized and destroyed.
