Ultimate Prostate Formula is manufactured by HerbalLife. It is offered up to consumers as the best way to support proper urinary function by increasing antioxidant protection and reducing inflammation. It is claimed that the soft gel capsules also help increase efficacy by increasing absorption by the prostate.
Ultimate Prostate Formula contains vitamin E, selenium, saw palmetto lipid extract (180 mg), pumpkin seed oil, lycopene (1 mg), and dried black pepper extract.
Ultimate Prostate Formula contains a high-potency form of saw palmetto. Unfortunately, it contains very little of it. The recommended dose is 320 mg and Ultimate Prostate Formula contains only 180 mg. That said, the benefits of the increased potency do help to offset the lower quantity.
The additional ingredients in Ultimate Prostate Formula have not been shown to have any effect on acute prostate problems. Pumpkin seed extract may have some benefits, but reports are based entirely upon anecdotal evidence.
The ingredients in Ultimate Prostate Formula have few and insignificant side effects. The lycopene dose is so low that it need not be of concern. In fact, the lycopene dose is so low that it could probably be eliminated from the supplement altogether.
Final Grade: C
Though the quantity of saw palmetto is low, the purity is high. Ultimate Prostate Formula is likely to be an effective treatment for BPH, but it probably isn’t as effective as it could be. The addition of ingredients like beta-sitosterol, pygeum extract, or quercetin could greatly improve the efficacy of this particular supplement. Given the availability of other, higher quality supplements on the market, we recommend avoiding Ultimate Prostate Formula even though it is one of the better supplements we have tested.
