What is HP8?
Of all the prostate products available online nowadays, one that is worthy of a review that is called HP8 by American BioSciences Inc. This company has a good reputation in the health supplement industry so we felt it warranted further exploration. This supplement claims to address symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate with its breakthrough proprietary formula. It claims to have powerful nutrients that boost health and well-being.
HP8 contains the following active ingredients:
- Licorice Root Extract
- Saw Palmetto Berry (dry extract)
- Bromelain 2400 GDU/Gram
- High Selenium Yeast
- Willow Herb Extract 4:1
- MegaNatural Gold Grape Seed Extract
- Grape Skin Powder
- Wild Rosella Calyx
- Passion Fruit Powder
Inactive ingredients include: silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate USP, dibasic calcium phosphate served in a vegetarian capsule.
No added: cane sugar, lactose, artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservative or animal derived ingredients.
The manufacturer suggests taking 2 (two) capsules a day. However, for maximum benefit, take 4 (four) capsules per day.
A bottle contains 70 vegetarian capsules and costs, via Amazon, $23.03. We could not find an easy way to purchase this directly from their website. If you took this as per the manufacturer’s recommendations, it will last you 28 days.
Possible Side Effects
This product comes with several health warnings. Most obviously, that it is not intended for women or children. If you are taking an anticoagulant or blood pressure medication or are being treated for liver, heart or kidney disorders, consult with a healthcare professional before use. This product contains licorice root, which in some people may cause changes in blood pressure. If you experience changes in blood pressure while taking this product, discontinue use and consult your healthcare provider.
Perhaps more alarming is the that it states – California Prop 65 Warning: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or reproductive harm.
HP8 do not offer a money back guarantee, which is disappointing. They do have several positive testimonials on their website, but only a handful. We failed to find more reviews on other review sites leaving us slightly nervous as to the performance of this product.
The Bottom Line
All in all, HP8 is a fairly good product containing some good prostate supporting ingredients to help quickly deal with symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. We liked the fact that this supplement is delivered in a vegetarian capsule and the price was pretty much on par with other similar products. We did not find any offers for multiple purchases, which can reduce the price a lot for consumers looking for long term prostate support. Their website does not offer a money back guarantee, like some of our other top products, which is definitely a weak point – guarantees show the manufacturer’s confidence in their product. Perhaps the most startling issue we had is the fact that it includes ingredients that are harmful and cancer causing. They don’t specifically state which ingredients these include but they do provide a link to a page that provides more details. However, it is not so detailed and unclear exactly what the risk is, maybe it is minimal but either way, we felt that this was a little risky to take, given the lack of information about which ingredients could be harmful.
