What is Physician Formulas Prostate Power?
Physician Formulas Prostate Power is a herbal supplement that provides support for optimal prostate function. The formula is a product of Dr. Ray Sahelian, MD and is intended for aging males who are looking for a natural way to keep their prostate healthy.
Prostate Power is comprised of a cocktail of herbs, vitamins and nutrients for promoting healthy male reproductive health. It is marketed as a preventive supplement, which means that you get optimal results when you start usage before symptoms become manifest.
Prostate Power contains the following active ingredients:
- Saw Palmetto
- Pygeum Africanum
- Stinging Nettle
- Beta Sitosterol
- Rosmarinic acid
Non-active ingredients include
- Rice flour
- Magnesium stearate
- Silicon dioxide
Saw Palmetto is a mainstay ingredient of prostate health supplements. It exhibits potent properties against an enlarged prostate and is widely used in alternative medicine. It also promotes overall optimal health of the prostate.
Lycopene is an antioxidant which is known to help protect against heart disease, prostate cancer (as well as cancers of the breasts, ovaries, lungs and colon) and macular degeneration. It is especially vital in aging individuals with increased risk of cancer and macular degenerative issues.
Beta Sitosterol is a substance that closely resembles cholesterol. It helps limit the amount of ‘bad’ cholesterol in the body. It also binds to the prostate, helping to reduce inflammation.
Rosmarinic acid also has various health benefits. It is a potent anti-inflammatory agent.
Suggested use for Prostate Power is to take two capsules daily, preferable on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. It is not taken with food.
Prostate Power costs $22.95 per bottle of 60 capsules. At the time of writing there were no discounts offered on the manufacturer’s website except a referral program.
Possible Side Effects
This supplement, like others that contain Saw Palmetto, is generally well tolerated with long term use not exceeding 6 months. However, some users may experience mild discomforts in the form of stomach upsets, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, constipation and/or vomiting.
The manufacturer’s refund policy is not the most generous. Only unopened bottles (and a maximum of two) are accepted for refund and they must be returned within 30 days of purchase along with a copy of the original invoice. A shipping and handling fee and an additional $7.00 “processing fee” will be deducted from the refund.
The manufacturer notes that no one can guarantee that a particular medication will work for a particular patient. The guarantee made is that its products are of the highest quality.
The Bottom Line
Prostate Power is another supplement that makes big claims but does little to stand by them. While most of the ingredients used are well known for their health properties especially in promoting a healthy prostate, the watered down refund policy puts a notable dent on an otherwise promising product. In addition, we found that the information on the website is solely focused on marketing the supplement without providing substantial support in the form of scientific references.
In conclusion, we have reservations about Physician Formulas Prostate Power and advise you consider alternative supplements that offers a more solid guarantee and more credible research.
