What You Need To Know About Procera Protect (Ceraplex)

Procera Protect is the new name for Procera Ceraplex. This supplement is supposed to remove toxins and dangerous free radical cells from the brain but although the ingredients are all either antioxidants or anti-inflammatories there is no real evidence it will work as described. The Procera brand is known for the use of false claims in advertising and the lack of any real customer feedback suggests that this supplement might not be all it is cracked up to be.

What Are The Side Effects Of Procera Protect (Ceraplex)?

Side effects may include: upset stomach, vomiting, nausea, diarrhoea, dizziness, increased oestrogen levels, aggravation of acid reflux, low blood pressure, interactions with medications.

How Much Does Procera Protect (Ceraplex) Cost?

Procera Protect is a medium-priced supplement.

If you buy from the official Procera website, one bottle of 60 capsules (30 servings or 1 month’s supply) costs £29.95. Three bottles (3 months’ supply) costs $84.95. Six bottles (6 months’ supply) costs $159.95.

You can also buy Procera Protect via Amazon from various sellers. Prices seem to be between $31.00 and $94.00 for one bottle of 60 capsules.

Although Procera supplements are also available in major stores such as Walmart, Procera Protect (Ceraplex) does not seem to be available.

Our Verdict On Procera Protect (Ceraplex)

We are not overly impressed by Procera Protect (Ceraplex). Although the supplement contains some good ingredients that may have benefits to general health, it is unlikely to work in the way as described and detox your brain. In addition there may be side effects.

KeyView Labs, the parent company of the Procera brand claims to be a research and development establishment. If this were really true, we are struggling to see why Procera Protect does not appear to have undergone any clinical testing. After all, it is what the company claims to do. However, this formula seems untested and the ingredient quantities contained in this supplement do not even match the clinical testing carried out elsewhere. We think it is very unlikely to work as described.

KeyView Labs is a multimillion company and the Procera brand is pretty well known and available from many stores including Walmart. Despite this, the company does not seem very trustworthy. KeyView Labs were fined over a million dollars for making fraudulent claims in advertising Procera AVH, one of their more popular supplements. In our opinion you cannot believe much about this company.

Finally, Procera Protect (Ceraplex) is just not popular with customers. There is hardly any customer feedback and it is not on sale from stores such as Walmart, probably because it just does not sell. In our opinion Procera Protect looks like a dud and despite the change of name, customers are obviously still not buying.

Procera Protect (Ceraplex) Review

Procera Protect (Ceraplex) is a supplement in capsule form. It is billed as a supplement that will protect your brain health by removing toxins such as heavy metals caused by pollution as well as free radical cells and degenerating cells due to aging.

The supplement used to be known simply as Ceraplex and it seems that Procera are attempting to change the name to Protect without confusing customers.

According to the product information, we all absorb toxins such as mercury and aluminium because of high pollution levels and although this affects all organs of the body, it is especially dangerous in the brain. Procera Protect (Ceraplex) contains natural ingredients that claim to help gather these dangerous brain toxins and remove them.

Procera Protect (Ceraplex) Facts

  • The Procera brand comes from Key View Labs Inc.
  • Each bottle contains 60 capsules.
  • Contains an untested formula.

This sounds good but Procera have previously run into trouble for deceptive advertising over another supplement called Procera AVH which had equally appealing claims.

Ingredients in Procera Protect include alpha lipoic acid (ALA) a powerful natural antioxidant, curcumin a natural chemical present in the spice turmeric and known for many physical health benefits. It contains a strong variety of vitamin B12 called methylcolbamin, n acetyl cysteine (NAC), quercetin and finally revesterol an antioxidant molecule found in red wine.

All the components of Procera Protect (Ceraplex) are present in ordinary food sources so should be safe and well tolerated. The perceived advantage of taking these in supplement form is that servings are stronger, more concentrated and so much more effective.

How to Take Procera Protect (Ceraplex)

Take 2 capsules daily.

Annoyingly with the exception of B12, all ingredients are mixed together in a proprietary blend so it is impossible to gauge the strength of each individual ingredient. However, it contains 720 mg of active ingredients per two capsules serving.

Procera Protect (Ceraplex) Concerns:

  • Can we really believe the brain detox claims in the advertising? Key View Labs have past form in making fraudulent claims.
  • Could cause side effects.
  • Why is there no customer feedback? Does it suggest that this supplement is very unpopular?

Key View Labs Inc. is a US company that researches and develops supplements for brain health and fitness and Procera is a well-known US brand name with large revenue. They faced charges of deceptive advertising that claimed that another product Procera AVH would reverse age-related mental decline and memory loss.

Key View Labs Inc. had to pay $1.4 million which many industry watchers felt did not go far enough for a major multi-million company.

What Does Procera Protect (Ceraplex) Claim To Do?

According to the product information, ‘Procera Protect is a natural brain detoxifier that can help neutralise neurotoxic build-up in the brain.’

There are three key features:

  • Brain antioxidant protection from free radicals, neurotoxins, stress and aging.
  • Helps rid the body and brain of neurotoxic build up, particularly in the form of heavy metals such as mercury.
  • Supports the brain’s natural immune system.

The product information explains how this supplement works and why it is safer than many other products on the market.

Procera Protect is a natural chelator. Chelation is a process in which an ingredient can bind to, draw out, and eliminate another molecule in the body, including toxins like iron, lead or mercury.

However, many synthetic chelating agents are harsh on the body and may be problematic for aging individuals or those who have immune system vulnerabilities.

Procera Protect’s natural formula eliminates that worry. Composed of highly researched food and herbal extracts that are considered safe and effective – such as curcumin, Resveratrol and Quercetin – Procera Protect helps gather up brain toxins and remove them in a softer, kinder way.

Does Procera Protect (Ceraplex) Work?

The product advertising is appealing but as this company has past form in making unproven claims we think you should take the persuasive word with a pinch of salt.

In addition, for a multi-million company that ‘researches and develops’ supplements, you would expect that some clinical research had been carried out on this formula but this is not the case.

However all the ingredients contained in the supplement are either an antioxidant or an anti-inflammatory and as many of these have been tested individually for their impact on free radical cells with varying degrees of success, it is possible that this combination may do something. The downside is that ingredient quantities do not match any positive clinical testing.

Another point is that there is very little proof that environmental toxins in the brain actually cause cognitive loss.

We think it is unlikely that Procera Protect (Ceraplex) will make much noticeable difference to your brain health or cognitive function.

What Are The Ingredients of Procera Protect (Ceraplex)?

Each serving is equal to two capsules.

  • Vitamin B12: This essential vitamin is not made in the body, cannot be stored and can only be taken by diet. B12 deficiency is in common especially as people age. B12 is important for numerous functions including healthy blood cells and common side effects of deficiency are problems such as depression and memory loss.

Procera Protect Blend (720 mg)

  • N-Acetyl L-Cysteine: This compound is derived from amino acid L cysteine and may have numerous medical applications including as a treatment for lung issues such as COPD and bronchitis. NAC works on a cellular level to increase glutathione an antioxidant substance in the body that helps build immunity by preventing oxidative damage to cells. It is taken as an antidote to some poisons and helps protect against environmental pollutants such as carbon monoxide.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid: Antioxidant naturally present in the body and also taken in supplement form. Helps remove free radical cells and might provide protection to the brain under conditions of damage or injury.
  • Turmeric Extract: Turmeric is a spice, familiar to lovers of Indian food. This bright yellow substance contains a chemical called curcumin which seems to prevent inflammation (swelling). It requires further clinical evidence.
  • Quercetin: Plant pigment found in foodstuffs including red onions, berries and buckwheat and a powerful antioxidant. Taken in supplement form it is effective as a treatment for prostate inflammation. It may have numerous applications but requires further evidence.
  • Japanese Knotweed Extract: This well-known invasive garden weed contains revesterol a molecule also present in red wine and the supposed cause of the benefits of wine. Revesterol acts in the body like an antioxidant and may help boost the immune system. Serving size is probably too low to do much. Most clinical testing has been based on daily servings of 2000 mg (2g) so this supplement probably does not contain enough to be effective.

Does Procera Protect (Ceraplex) Have Any Side Effects?

Procera Protect (Ceraplex) may cause side effects which might include:

  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea
  • Dizziness
  • Increased oestrogen levels
  • Heartburn
  • Acid reflux
  • Hypotension

The product information does not warn against side effects. However you will need to check with your doctor first if you are taking prescription medication because it will cause interactions. You should probably avoid if you have or have had a hormonally sensitive condition such as breast cancer or other underlying medical condition.

Caution:

Loved this product. I really felt the difference in clarity and focus.

I’ve been taking Procera AVH for a few months but when I added Procera Protect to my routine, the difference was remarkable. After years of working in construction, I think my brain needed a detox from the pollution I’ve been exposed too. My mind hasn’t felt this good in years.
