Progressive Health Monoplex Review


Manufacturer’s Claim

In the following review of Progressive Health Monoplex we examine the manufacturers claim that this product can reduce the number of canker sores people experience and help them to heal more quickly. Canker sores have a variety of triggers such as stress, a dietary deficiency or an immune insufficiency. This product aims to address those triggers.

Formula

  • Zinc – 7 mg
  • Vitamin B12 – 13.5 mcg
  • Folic Acid – 500 mcg
  • Iron – 5 mg
  • Lysine – 500 mg
  • Glutamine – 2500 mg
  • Vitamin C – 1000 mg

It seems the major aim of this product is to be a supplement that provides nutrients to healing tissue. It is possible that canker sores can be caused by dietary insufficiency of some of the ingredients listed. Many of the vitamins and minerals contribute to the efficiency of the immune system as well so this issue is also addressed by the product.

The glutamine also acts as a stress reliever which may reduce the stress trigger of canker sores. Many of the ingredients are also antioxidants which reduce inflammation to promote healing.

Despite a fairly comprehensive list of ingredients, the manufacturer has left out some that might reduce pain and itching. We are also not that convinced in their formulation using a supplement to deliver the ingredients compared to a topical product that delivers all the ingredients to the affected sites rather than throughout the body.

Instructions

The product is taken in the form of capsules. Three capsules must be taken per day according to the manufacturer. They don’t state whether this should be taken three times a day or all at once.  They also do not state whether it should be taken with food or not.

Cost

There are three pricing options from this manufacturer. Buying one bottle of 90 capsules will cost $35.95. Potential customers can buy four bottles for $104.85 or six bottles for $139.80 which includes free shipping.

Possible Side Effects

The only ingredient that could really cause major side effects is the licorice. Liquorice is not safe for people with heart disease or high blood pressure because it can worsen these conditions. It is not suggested for people with kidney disease to use the product either. Licorice may cause reduced sex drive in men.

This product is also definitely unsafe for pregnant woman as it can cause an early delivery.

Guarantee

The manufacturer offers a 6-month guarantee. If the customer is not satisfied for any reason they may contact the manufacturer and return the order for a complete refund within this time. The manufacturer says that no questions will be asked and the refund will be issued within 7 to 14 days.

Progressive Health Monoplex Review – The Bottom Line

The ingredients in this product tackle the issue of canker sores from a few different angles. The product is offered at a fair price too. We are however not so sure that the effectiveness of this product because it is missing a key ingredient to reduce pain and because it doesn’t deliver the ingredients in a local and potent manner.
