Prostate Complete is a comprehensive, natural formula designed to support a healthy prostate. It is marketed by Vitabase as containing an exclusive blend of prostate-supporting herbs (like saw palmetto) that help to reduce chemical overload in the body. The product is supported by Dr. Kevin Passero, vice president of Maryland’s Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Prostate Complete is bolstered by a 60-day, money-back guarantee.
Prostate Complete contains a large number of ingredients including vitamins, minerals, and natural herbs. Vitamins include B6 and E. Minerals include zinc, copper, and selenium. Natural plant extracts include 300 mg of saw palmetto, 450 mg of beta-sitosterol, 150 mg of pygeum bark extract, red raspberry, graviola, green tea, cat’s claw, broccoli, lycopene, stinging nettle, reishi mushroom, shiitake mushroom, maitake mushroom, and a proprietary blend of other herbs.
Efficacy: Moderate to High
Saw palmetto is the most effective natural herb for treating the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Even the Mayo Clinic recommends saw palmetto as an alternative to prescription drugs, saying that it is just as effective. Interestingly, the saw palmetto in Prostate Complete appears to be a hybridized version, which may or may not be as efficacious as the normal version.
Pygeum extract, graviola, cat’s claw, and beta-sitosterol have all been linked, in some way, to improved prostate health. Many also work with one another to boost the benefits of any supplement that contains them in combination. As with the saw palmetto, Prostate Complete appears to contain powdered forms of these herbs rather than pure extract, a factor that may reduce potency to some degree.
Lycopene has recently been linked to an increased risk of aggressive prostate problems. Prostate Complete contains a relatively low dose of lycopene, which will help to mitigate any negative effects. It would be better if Vitabase eliminated it from their supplement entirely.
Final Grade: B – C
Prostate Complete is likely effective and mostly safe. The product could be improve through the use of pure herbal extracts rather than condensed powders and through the removal of lycopene. The rating on this product hovers between a C+ and a B.
