Our Final Review of FutureBiotics ProstAdvanced
We were pleased to see that the capsule used in the manufacturing of this product is wholly vegetarian, making ProstAdvanced suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Many of the ingredients used in its formulation have been clinically proven to boost healthy prostate function but we were concerned that the exact proportions of these ingredients were not specified. This makes it hard to evaluate just how potent a product ProstAdvanced is and whether you would be getting value for money.
The returns policy, however, is quite generous when compared to that of competitive products.
