What is ProstaGenix?

By HighYa Staff
Published on: Nov 15, 2017

Endorsed by Larry King, ProstaGenix contains a blend of 18 natural ingredients the company claims can help most men experience relief from the urgency, staining, dribbling, and nighttime rushes to the bathroom often associated with frequent urination.

Even if you’re over the age of 40, this supplement specifically claims to help men start peeing like an 18-year old again, as well as to address erection problems. How’s it work?

The website tells us that ProstaGenix contains the highest, most potent dosage of beta-sitosterol in any product, which is combined with a polyphenol blend “specifically shown improve prostate health.” Together, they’re said to reduce inflammatory molecules in the prostate and support prostate health.

Taking three capsules per day as directed, Verified Nutrition reports that most men feel a 'distinctive and noticeable change’ in the first 10 days, with maximum results over the course of three to four weeks.

According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, 50 percent of men over the age of 50 are diagnosed with BPH, while men over 80 have a 90 percent chance. If you count yourself among these numbers, let’s see if ProstaGenix can potentially provide some relief—starting the fundamentals.

What Condition Is ProstaGenix Formulated to Address?

Normally about the size of a walnut, the prostate gland is primarily responsible for making a component of semen that helps carry sperm. Starting around the age of 25, this gland begins growing slowly and doesn’t stop throughout a man’s life.

Sometimes, WebMD tells us that this growth can start squeezing surrounding areas; primarily, the urethra, which can cause difficulty urinating, a weak urine stream that frequently stops and starts, and dribbling.

And since the bladder has to work overtime as a result, its muscles can weaken and lead to the sensation of having to urinate (even if you just did), urinating eight or more times per day, a sudden urge to pee, and even incontinence. Cumulatively, this is what’s known as benign prostatic hyperplasia.

And while BPH is rarely a health concern, it can certainly cause some unwanted lifestyle changes—including potential erectile dysfunction. But what does ProstaGenix contain, and can you expect it to deliver on the manufacturer’s claims?

Taking a Closer Look at ProstaGenix’s Ingredients

The supplement facts label shown on the ProstaGenix website listed the following ingredients:

  • Vitamin D3 400 IU
  • Iron 18 mg
  • Iodine 150 mcg
  • Zinc 15 mg
  • Selenium 70 mcg
  • Copper 2 mg
  • Manganese 2 mg
  • Chromium 120 mcg
  • Molybdenum 65 mcg
  • Silica 10 mg
  • Boron Amino Acid Chelate 3 mg
  • Proprietary Master Sterol Blend 1,200 mg: Beta-sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol, brassicasterol
  • Targeted Polyphenol Synergistic Blend 250 mg: Grape seed extract, pomegranate extract, quercetin

The bottom line is that the HighYa team isn’t staffed by medical or clinical experts. This means that, when addressing whether or not an ingredient is ‘effective’ for a specific claim, we rely on the summarizations of the available clinical evidence provided by sites like the Natural Medicines Database, WebMD, and Examine.com.

Cumulatively, they report that taking a combination of zinc, selenium, and iodide (no dosages listed) may help reduce prostate swelling and pain, while improving quality of life.

And while plant sterols, in general, aren't listed as effective for any condition, ConsumerLab indicates that 60 to 130 mg of beta-sitosterol, specifically, has been shown to “significantly improve perceived symptoms of BPH and urine rate flow. However, it hasn’t been shown to actually shrink an enlarged prostate.

Finally, taking 1,000 mg of quercetin daily is listed as possibly effective for reducing pain and improving quality of life in men with BPH, but doesn't seem to address related urination problems.

Of these, keep in mind that the beta-sitosterol and quercetin in ProstaGenix are part of proprietary blends, so we can’t know exactly how much the supplement contains, or if it’s the same dosages found in supporting studies.

Outside of this, these same authoritative sites indicated the supplement’s remaining ingredients didn’t have sufficient clinical evidence to list them as effective for any BPH or erection-related conditions.

Could ProstaGenix’s Ingredients Cause Side Effects?

In general, the Natural Medicines Database, WebMD, and Examine.com indicated that most of these ingredients likely won’t cause side effects in most users. And if they do, it likely won’t be worse than mild, temporary digestive upset (no specifics or dosages provides).

However, it’s important to point out that the recommended daily allowance of iron for men age 19 and over is 8 mg, while ProstaGenix contains more than double this amount. As such, this could increase the likelihood of experiencing more severe side effects like constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain.

Finally, even when taking less than 400 mcg of selenium per day, WebMD reports that long-term supplementation could increase the risk of developing diabetes.

This is why it’s always a good idea to speak with a healthcare professional before purchasing any supplement, ProstaGenix or otherwise. And since you’re likely already in contact with one because of your symptoms related to a swollen prostate, this could represent an ideal time to inquire.

How Much Does ProstaGenix Cost?

ProstaGenix is priced as follows:

  • 1 Bottle (90 capsules): $49.95
  • 3 Bottles: $99.95 ($ per bottle)
  • 5 Bottles: $149.95 ($ per bottle)

All orders come with a 90-day money back guarantee, less S&H, which customers can request by calling 800-801-0294.

A Quick Note Regarding Arbitration

Arbitration clauses are extraordinarily common in today’s marketplace; everything from credit cards to cell phone contracts. In a nutshell, they stipulate that if you have a grievance with the company, you agree to attend an arbitration proceeding, versus going through the court system (e.g., trial by jury, class action lawsuit, etc.).

Keep this in mind, because as soon as you place your ProstaGenix order, you’ll be bound by an arbitration agreement.

What Do We Know About the Company Behind ProstaGenix?

The short answer? Not a whole lot.

First, while there was an image advertising 2,300+ customer reviews on the ProstaGenix website (who gave it an average rating of 4.8 stars), none of this feedback could be browsed to get an overall idea of what everyone was saying.

Furthermore, the company—Verified Nutrition, LLC—doesn’t have a standalone website and wasn’t listed with the Better Business Bureau.

They also advertise that ProstaGenix was “named as the number one product in the world by several prestigious rating organizations,” including The Natural Health Federation.

However, we didn’t find any indication of this honor on the NHF’s website, which is an organization dedicated to protecting “individuals' rights to choose to consume healthy food, take supplements and use alternative therapies without government restrictions.”

How Does ProstaGenix Compare to Other Prostate Supplements?

Searching Google Shopping for the term ‘prostate supplement’ returned dozens of results that contained beta-sitosterol at the time of our research. Other online marketplaces like Amazon returned more than 3,000, while Walmart.com displayed greater than 700.

From a price perspective, we found these supplements tended to range between $10 and $40, placing ProstaGenix at the upper end of the spectrum. Among all these options, how in the world can you choose the best one for your needs?

Actually, your needs are exactly where you should start. Specifically, by discussing any prostate issues you’re experiencing with your doctor, who can ask the right questions, order the appropriate tests, and recommend science-backed options based on your diagnosis.

Even if they recommend proceeding with dietary supplements, though, keep in mind that these products aren’t as regulated prescription medications, so you’ll want to place emphasis on companies who:

  • Have a robust online presence (standalone website, Better Business Bureau rating, etc.), with mostly positive online customer feedback.
  • Offers customers at least 30 days to try their products, with reasonable S&H charges and no restocking fees.
  • Clearly lists all of the ingredients included in their supplements, including dosages.

Does this mean you should do business with Verified Nutrition?

Our Final Thoughts About ProstaGenix

According to WebMD, the “best-studied, most commonly used supplements to treat BPH” are beta-sitosterol, pygeum, rye pollen extract, and saw palmetto, only one of which is found in ProstaGenix.

On top of this, we found standalone supplements containing as much as 800 mg of beta-sitosterol per dose for as little as $20 during our research, which is less than half the price of the product in question.

And since ProstaGenix’s beta-sitosterol is part of a proprietary blend, there’s no way to know if it actually contains the highest, most potent dosage found in any product, as claimed on the website.

At any rate, this ingredient is so common that you’ll almost certainly find it locally at just about any retailer with a health section, thereby saving S&H charges and potentially making the refund process super easy if you’re dissatisfied.

Taking these efficacy and pricing details into consideration, and combining them with the fact that there was zero third-party online customer feedback for the supplement as of this writing, and that it comes from an almost completely anonymous manufacturer, we’d strongly recommend discussing ProstaGenix with your physician before placing an order.

    Made my BPH symptoms worse

    • Watsonville, CA,
    • Dec 7, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I had been taking Saw Palmetto (6-8 450mg capsules per day) for about a year with some improvement but still needing 2-3 nighttime excursions. I stumbled upon Larry King's smooth sell and ordered 7 bottles of this crap. Trustingly, I have been taking it religiously for one month instead of my dose of Saw Palmetto. The result has been a gradual worsening of my condition with increased pain and lower flow. I'm writing this because things got so bad that I considered visiting the ER at our local hospital because I just could not pee and suffered greatly trying. I have started taking Saw Palmetto again and am getting some relief. My conclusion is that either Larry King is a dishonest salesman who will say anything for a lot of bucks or the success of this snake oil is highly variable, depending upon who takes it. If you buy it, don't be a fool like me and waste so much money. Buy just a little, and if it fails to work, don't drag on your suffering hoping that it will eventually kick in. Good luck.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Positive and negative results so far

    • Indiana,
    • Dec 6, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    On the strong recommendation of Larry King I thought, "what the hell?" and ordered it. The price seemed a little steep, but I thought that if it did work it would be worth it. I only ordered one bottle to see if I got any results after the first 2 weeks like other people were reporting on their website. I also figured if it didn't work, then I would only be out the price of one bottle and would just not order any more. The claims of improved urine flow and actual shrinking of the prostate, and Larry's claims of improved sexual function made me quite curious.

    So after about ten days on the product, I did notice more complete emptying and much improved urinary symptoms, and a slight improvement in sexual function. I was quite impressed and quite pleased. I was so pleased that I ordered a second bottle, which I am now finishing up. But I am noticing while going through the second bottle that the improved urine flow has kind of reversed and is back to being closer to where I started before taking this product. The thought of forking over a bunch of money to take this stuff is not turning me on, to say the least. I would imagine there are other products and possibly even natural solutions I could get for much cheaper. Was there an improvement? Absolutely. Did the product really live up to its impressive claims? Absolutely not!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Disappointed in Brantford

    • Brantford, Ontario, Canada,
    • Dec 5, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I'm just about finished a bottle of ProstaGenix that I've been taking regularly for almost a month. Sadly, I'm still up 3-4 times a night running to the washroom to pee. I haven't had a good, complete night of sleep in years and ProstaGenix failed to live up to all the hype created by Larry King! I'm glad I only ordered one bottle. I won't be ordering any more.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Didn't do anything

    • Florida,
    • Nov 18, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I took three pills a day along with their free supplement, and like all other prostate issue pills, it did absolutely nothing for me. Now I will attempt to get my money back. As in other products, there was no reduction in my many night trips to the bathroom and no increased flow.

    I have tried ProstaGenix for over a month with absolutely no help with prostate. I still have two unopened bottles yet and have given up on the product being of any help. I will undergo surgery, "Rezum Therapy," to correct the problem...

    Not as advertised.

    • Red Lodge, MT,
    • Oct 5, 2018

    I have used this product for six months. The product is not as they advertise. I would not recommend to anyone to use it. I have not had a positive experience with this product. I have about $150.00 invested in product that did not work. I would advise people to try another product and not this one.

    Product actually works

    • Reno, NV,
    • Sep 27, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I was a skeptic at first of ProstaGenix, but after taking it, I'm 100% convinced. It is an amazing product. I was having to get up around five times per night to use the bathroom, and now I only have to get up one time MAX. It honestly has changed a large part of my life, and I'm able to sleep better now.

    Now that I can sleep better, I can wake up better and healthier, and give me family the best side of me.

    Truly a fantastic experience.

    Also, I spoke with a customer service representative named Tamara who handled all of my worries and concerns, and I'm glad that she did. Thanks again!

      In that case, it's probably your family's company.

    ProstaGenix

    • Louisiana,
    • Sep 26, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    DISAPPOINTED. I started taking this ProstaGenix on August 19, 2018. It is now September 26, 2018, and like other reviews, I purchased this item on Larry King's recommendation. Never again. I was really hoping this product would work for me so I could have shared my experience with my friends who are also suffering with pee issues. If there is a good product out there, please let me know, because ProstaGenix is not one of them.

      I use Flomax 40 mg, which after trying several other prescriptions seems to be the only smart choice for now. I have been getting a generic brand from my pharmacy, which is larger in size compared to my older capsules, and it works much better and longer.

      Why would anyone even try those over the counter medications, when they already know a doctor is their only real hope, is beyond me. For now, we (older men) just have to wait and see until a better option comes along.

    Fantastic product

    • Santa Monica, CA,
    • Sep 6, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    ProstaGenix has proven to be a dream come true for me. Prior to using these pills, I suffered from frequent and urgent need to go to the bathroom. Within a few weeks of taking ProstaGenix pills, this urgent and frequent use was halted and now I am able to sit through long meetings and sleep all night without having to seek urinary relief. Thanks to an article by Larry King I stumbled upon and to ProstaGenix, my life has returned to normal.

    Not effective enough

    • México,
    • Aug 22, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    On Larry King's strong recommendation, I began taking ProstaGenix two and a half months ago, and quite frankly, if it made a difference, it is not noticeable. In fact, I made a prostate ultrasound before I started taking this supplement, and one after two months of taking it. The second test showed that my prostate had grown larger after ProstaGenix. My urine retention was slightly less, though, but my urine flow was no stronger. I am not satisfied, and am not persuaded by the results to recommend it with any conviction at all.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I started taking ProstaGenix on July 22, 2018 and have not seen any improvements in my prostate symptoms. It is now August 12, 2018, and I am still getting up at night to pee, and still running to the restroom during the day. I am very disappointed in this product, I don't recommend using it, waste of time and money.
