What is Puritan’s Pride Specific Care Prostate?
Puritan’s Pride Specific Care Prostate is a natural supplement promoting a healthy prostate. The prostate gland is part of the male reproductive system, and it has an impact on urinary flow. As men age, this gland can enlarge; due to its location, the enlarged gland constricts the urethra, limiting the flow of urine from the bladder. Left untreated, this constriction can result in urinary tract infections, bladder stones, and chronic kidney disease. Puritan’s Pride Specific Care Prostate combines several herbal ingredients to work towards keeping your prostate healthy.
- Saw Palmetto extract 80mg – Extract from the Serenoa repens berry, standardized to 85 – 95% fatty acids and sterols.
- Pumpkin seed oil 80mg – Extracted from Cucurbita spp. A natural source of phytochemicals supporting prostate and urinary health.
- Lycopene 3mg – A carotenoid, found specifically in the prostate. Lycopene is extracted from plant sources, particularly tomatoes.
- Bearberry extract 5mg – Extracted from the leaf of the Arctostaphylos uva-urs plant. Standardized to contain 10% Arbutin.
There are many natural prostate supplements; ingredients vary, as do effectiveness and price. Saw palmetto has been used for decades to treat sexual performance issues in males; a side benefit is its effect on prostate health. The other ingredients also support the prostate and a healthy urine flow. Allopathic studies have been done on saw palmetto; the jury is still out, due to the viability of the performed studies. Some say the herbal extract works, others say it doesn’t. The best indicator is how it works for you.
The instructions say to take one softgel four times daily, preferably with food. The directions are clear and easy to follow. A drawback is the number of softgels per bottle; 75 softgels is not a month’s supply at 4 a day. You will need to purchase two bottles at a time to get a month’s worth.

Our Final Review of Puritan’s Pride Specific Care Prostate
- Easy to use
- Made in the USA
- Quality controlled, GMP practices
- Insufficient supply for a month in one bottle
- Limited number of customer reviews
- Return policy is not risk-free
This product contains natural ingredients promoting prostate health, in amounts that should work. While the product is relatively inexpensive, we’re not thrilled with the fact that the company tries to force you to purchase a minimum of two bottles at once. On the other hand, you need to buy two bottles at a time to get a full month’s supply. We would prefer to see them offer a month’s supply in a bottle as with most other health supplements. And, while at first glance the return policy looks generous, it is not, in fact, a risk-free refund plan. Instead, the company charges you per pill and only refunds the unused portion.
