Prosplex claims that their prostate support formula contains high-quality saw palmetto, lycopene, and pumpkin seed extract. While that may have been the intention of the manufacturer, the extraction methods used to create the supplement are substandard. The result is that all of the ingredients are of substandard quality and though they will have some effect, they don’t do as much as they could to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
Prosplex contains IP-6 (inositol phosphate 6), saw palmetto extract, quercitin, lycopene, pygeum extract, and pumpkin seed extract.
Prosplex contains everything that it should. It has saw palmetto, which is scientifically proven to fight the effects of an enlarged prostate. It even contains the right amount of saw palmetto at 320 mg per capsule. It contains quercitin and pygeum extract, which boost the effects of saw palmetto and make it more potent. It also contains lycopene, which, in lower doses, can help to control prostate inflammation. Unfortunately, none of the these ingredients is particularly pure and so the efficacy of the entire supplement is diminished.
All ingredients in Prosplex are safe and have minimal side effects. Though the extracts are relatively impure, they do not contain contaminants or products that could cause harm. Simply put, the extracts are not concentrated enough, and so contain other parts of the natural herbs that are not efficacious and only take up valuable space. These additional herbal contaminants are not harmful. Care is even taken to avoid common additives that cause allergy, such as egg and corn products.
Final Grade: D
Prosplex is so close to being great and simultaneously very far from that same goal. The problem isn’t the content of the supplement, but rather the quality of its contents. If Prosplex could improve its extraction mechanisms to produce a purer product, it could easily move into the top 5 lists of best prostate supplements.
