March 21, 2017Reviewer: A customer in China* I noticed a swelling (down below) when sitting on hard surfaces. A bit disturbing!
Did some research: it turns out that it's an 'age related' thing, and the only compound shown to have any beneficial effect is Pygeum extract.
I haven't tried any competing products. I was tempted by Doctor's Best, but its lower dosage of good ingredients, 'complete with added vitamins', put me off! Life Extension stuff is pricey (hence only 4 stars), but I think that they use quality ingredients in their products, and it has got more Pygeum extract.
I'm glad to report that it seems to work. I only take one cap a day (atm), and the swelling is reduced. And, if I miss taking it for a day or two, the swelling increases again. So, I hope that Life Extention continue making these caps for a long time to come, and that I've got the cash to buy them!
