ProSolution Gel Review visit website
ProSolution Gel is a topical performance enhancer that when massaged into the penis, claims to offer a fast and effective solution for those with sexual and erection performance concerns.
Chances are you’ve heard of the ProSolution brand before – I’ve reviewed both ProSolution Pills and ProSolution Plus – however this spin-off product from the same manufacturers (Leading Edge Health) offers a much faster acting option verses consuming a daily supplement.
ProSolution Gel claims to:
- Give you instant erections (a bold claim!)
- Allow you to maintain your erection for longer
- Make your penis look bigger, fuller and thicker
- Increase the intensity of orgasms
If ProSolution Gel is really as good as it claims and as effective as the other products in the ProSolution range, then chances are we’re going to see some good results.
It’s going to be interesting to see how this male enhancement gel measures up against the likes of Instant Performer and VigRX Oil – two competing products with a similar delivery system aiming to achieve similar results.
Keep reading to find out what ingredients ProSolution Gel offers, how to get an exclusive discount on your ProSolution Gel order and most importantly what sort of results i got when testing out this topical male enhancement gel.
ProSolution Gel & Product Box
As with all products from Leading Edge Health, ProSolution Gel is no different where discreet packaging and delivery is concerned. My one tube supply came in a completely non-descript brown shipping box, with no specific mention or hint as to its contents.
With each unit of ProSolution Gel you get a glossy white retail box that has the recognisable ProSolution logo, as well as the quoting the gel is for “Topical Performance Enhancement”.
There is mention to it being “The World’s Top Rated Male Enhancement System” however there is nothing to substantiate this claim and does feel as though this tag line has simply been borrowed from ProSolution Pills with the premise that ProSolution Gel, when used with Erection System – an online jelqing exercise program.
I’ve got to be honest, the packaging and specifically the claims on the box along with mentions of Marabou Ltd and Natural Health Sciences (two subsidiary companies belonging to Leading Edge Health) does make the product box feel really rather outdated.
Over the last year we have seen Leading Edge Health update numerous product websites including the hugely popular VigRX Plus and sister product ProSolution Plus so i think it’s perhaps only a matter of time until ProSolution Gel and it’s website get the same treatment.
On the reverse of the box you’ll find directions for use along with a concise list of ingredients, ordered largest to smallest with the expected exclusion of any specific quantities given the nature of this sort of product.
There is also the usual obligatory statement about the product having not been assessed by the FDA, along with it not being intended to treat, cure, diagnose or prevent any disease.
Inside the retail box you get your tube of ProSolution Gel which sports the same design and information as you get on the box – the only addition being the quoted volume of gel in each tube; notably 60ml (that’s 2fl. oz.).
Notably despite claiming to offer approximately 30 applications, the ProSolution Gel tube is notably smaller than that offered by Instant Performer so potentially not quite as good value for money as its main competitor so we’ll have to see how it compares on price!
ProSolution Gel Product Photos
We’ve bought it, it’s been delivered – we have a real box of ProSolution Gel on my desk. Unlike so many other fake review sites, we’ve actually got our hands on the product.
ProSolution Gel Ingredients & Side Effects
ProSolution Gel contains 7 main ingredients (which their website specifically details the benefits of) and a further 8 ingredients as well as both natural and artificial flavors and preservatives to give ProSolution Gel its appearance, consistency and taste.
The 7 key ingredients in its overall formulation you’ll likely have seen mentioned in a number of other male enhancement products, whether they be pills, patches or other topical treatments.
Each ingredient has been selected to improve the performance and longevity of male sexual performance whilst focusing more specifically on increasing nitric oxide levels in the bloodstream.
If you’ve done even the smallest amount of research into consumable male enhancement products, you’ve no doubt seen reference to nitric oxide levels and how a deficiency can affect the male body – specifically in relation to testosterone levels.
It’s through transdermal application – allowing the ingredients to be absorbed through the skin – that topical solutions such as ProSolution Gel help stimulate and increase not just nitric oxide levels, but other imbalances in the body that lower sexual drive, arousal and even the quality and intensity of ejaculation.
Notably in products of this type – gels, sprays, oils and creams – don’t expect to see specific dosages for each individual ingredient; unlike pills, the best you can hope for is a list of ingredients listed on the label from highest to lowest quantity.
I also feel it’s worth noting that although ProSolution Gel does pitch itself as an immediate way to achieve an erection, once the gel has been applied to the penis, it will likely take a good few uses to produce the claimed dramatic results (in fact their website claims results after having used the gel daily for 60-90 days which is quite a time and cash investment).
That said, the more you use it (over the long term) the more likely it is that the transdermal absorption of ingredients will gradually and slowly elevate your results (much as you’d experience with the consumption of a more traditional male enhancement pill).
It’s worth noting that the overall formulation has been specifically designed to have a slightly fresh mint scent, it is safe to use with contraception (such as condoms), whilst also being safe to eat (albeit, I would recommend in as minimal quantity as possible).
Notably you will see the abbreviation USP on a number of ingredients in the formulation – this stands for United States Pharmacopeia and essentially means the ingredient has a legally recognised standard applied to it; for labeling, strength, identity, purity, quality and packaging.
This is an optional addition to an unregulated drug label, which gives credit to the higher standards of the product by using lab-tested ingredients.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
The ProSolution Gel formula claims to address your erection and sexual performance problems. It claims to boost nitric oxide levels upon contact – causing smooth muscles of the penis to relax and get engorged with blood – thereby promising longer lasting erections.
As a differentiating characteristic, this product claims that your female partner will not feel ‘numbed’ upon its use, unlike with other products that are available on the market.
The manufacturer claims that the most important ingredient in this product is L-arginine – a critical amino acid that the body converts to nitric oxide. There are also other herbal components in this gel that the manufacturer claims will support erectile function and enhance sexual arousal.
Interestingly, ProSolution Gel also claims to have a ‘breakthrough topical delivery system’ that directly and rapidly delivers this potent mix of herbal aphrodisiacs and L-arginine to the penile tissue.Read more
L-Arginine is a very familiar ingredient in the male sexual health sphere.
We’ve seen it used numerous times in varying quantities, primarily in penis pills, however also in products like ProSolution Gel. This is the power ingredient, the one that becomes nitric oxide once absorbed into the body.
It’s used as a vasodilator to relax the blood vessels and increase blood flow to the penis.
A word of warning – its effectiveness comes with side effects. This common amino acid is also used to lower blood sugar and blood pressure. If you’re taking medication for blood pressure, diabetes, or erectile dysfunction, you might want to consult a doctor before applying anything containing L-Arginine to your body.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
As per the manufacturer’s claim, the most important ingredient in ProSolution Gel formula is L-arginine. Nitric oxide is synthesized from L-arginine by nitric oxide synthase (NOS).
Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider, and along with relaxation of cavernous smooth muscle for improved blood flow this is essential for achieving an erection. It is therefore believed that arginine has the potential to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) and is a popular ingredient in male sexual enhancement supplements.
Most of the reported studies however, assess the effect of administration of oral arginine along with other active ingredients on ED. Topical L-arginine has not been studied extensively as an ED treatment.
A variety of means can be envisioned to enhance the absorption of this active ingredient following application to the penis. However, based on the ingredient list, it is not clear how ProSolution Gel achieves the rapid and effective absorption of L-arginine that it claims on its website.
The claim that a single application of this product can show dramatic improvement in erectile function and arousal seems far-fetched.
L-arginine is possibly safe for most people for oral and topical administration. It can cause some side effects such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea, gout, allergies, worsening of asthma, and low blood pressure.
Caution should be exercised while using arginine containing products along with anti-hypertensive medication, nitrates and sildenafil (Viagra).Read more
Aloe Vera Extract
Most of us are familiar with aloe, the succulent plant used for everything from sunburn to slimy bottled drinks. Its gel consistency and moisturizing properties make it a good choice for a topical product, not to mention the fact that it acts as an amazing all-natural lubricant.
Aloe is also used as a vasodilator and can increase testosterone levels in the body. The only downside to aloe vera extract is possible irritation to anyone with a latex allergy.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
Aloe vera extract is widely used in both traditional and modern medicine for a variety of purposes.
Aloe vera is a short-stemmed succulent herb whose extracts are said to have a rejuvenating, healing and soothing property as marketed in the cosmetic and alternative medicine industries.
Previous reports show that the extract of AB have been proven via in vivo and in vitro studies to have effects on reproductive functions such as increasing sperm count and testosterone production.
Animal studies demonstrate that aloe vera extract has aphrodisiac properties. However, it is important to note that these studies administer the aloe vera extract orally.
In a topical preparation aloe vera extract can contribute to the increased emollient effect. Also it is a common component of many moisturizing skin preparations and is known to be safe and well tolerated.Read more
Commonly used to treat uneven skin tone in facial products, bearberry extract contains antioxidants and nutrients for the skin.
While not specifically helpful for erections or pleasure, its maintenance of healthy penile skin can be considered a bonus.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
Bearberry is a small shrub native to the temperate climates of North America and Europe used for treatment of urinary tract infections, as a diuretic, wound healing, and antiseptic agent.
Research about the role of this extract in treatment of ED is not available. Bearberry appears to be relatively safe, although large doses (again oral) may cause nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, back pain and tinnitus.Read more
Another ingredient with proven moisturizing and antioxidant properties for the skin, algae extract has been used to treat erectile dysfunction but doesn’t have much science to back it up.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
Marine algae extracts have been used in alternative cosmetics for skin-related diseases since ancient times. Today, marine algae extracts have been extensively used in skin care products due the numerous bioactive compounds that they contain.
Algae extract is formed from the four major seaweed classes: red algae, brown algae, blue-green algae, and green algae. Each class contains molecules that promote skin benefits such as: omega 3 fatty acids, amino acids, and vitamins A, B, C, and E. A herbal combination comprising the alga Ecklonia bicyclis has proven to be effective in addressing ED symptoms by improving ejaculation and quality of sexual life.
The extremely strong polyphenols in algae are believed to act by inhibiting the anti-NO (nitric oxide) effects of free radicals. Certain algae have also been shown to maintain sperm quality due to antioxidant effects.
Once again, this algal therapy was administered orally to patients and research around topical administration does not exist. Safety profile of blue-green algal extracts indicates that they are safe, especially for topical application.Read more
Made of oils from mango seeds, mango butter is a creamy moisturizer with a very subtle fruit scent. It has great absorbency and likely adds to the pleasant texture of ProSolution Gel.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
Mango butter is receiving increasing attention primarily as a high quality alternative to cocoa butter which has a high demand in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
Fatty acid and triglyceride composition of mango butter is similar to that of cocoa butter. Mango butter is rich in antioxidants, vitamin A and E. It has superior emolliency and lends protection against sun & UV rays.
It nourishes skin rash, eczema, insect bites and poison ivy. It can prevent drying of the skin and formulation of wrinkles by promoting skin cell regeneration and restoring elasticity.
These are however, all the cosmetic benefits of mango butter and there is no reported aphrodisiac potential or research around its ability to directly contribute to treatment of ED or sexual dysfunction.
As it is gaining popularity as an effective alternative to cocoa butter in its various formulations, mango butter is safe for topical application.Read more
Menthol has the ability to give ProSolution Gel a bit of fresh, minty taste and smell however, as we’ve seen in ProEnhance patches, menthol when applied to the skin also helps to proactively open the pores of your skin.
What this means is that the ingredients in ProSolution Gel can be better absorbed, and as a result improve the effectiveness of this male enhancement gel.
Menthol is commonly used in topical products to give that instant cooling sensation, mostly to make you feel like the product is actually doing something.
It can increase blood flow to the skin, so if that sensation is pleasurable to you, your erection will likely benefit. And while the research shows that topical menthol doesn’t do much besides act as a sidekick ingredient, it’s worth noting that there is plenty of research showing the success of the placebo effect.
For men with more sensitive skin, or those planning to use ProSolution Gel before sex, use cautiously as menthol can irritate your skin or your partner’s.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
Menthol is a substance naturally found in mint plants such as peppermint and spearmint. It is often used to relieve minor pain and irritation and prevent infection. Topically applied menthol containing gels result in a cooling sensation and are reported to act as a counterirritant to reduce the sensation of pain.
Menthol causes vasodilation of the skin blood vessels and therefore in this formulation might aid better absorption of the active ingredients. Menthol is widely used in many topical application creams, gels and ointments and is regarded as safe for external use. It might however irritate skin which has cuts on it.Read more
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
A safe, natural preservative, ascorbic acid keeps this product fresh without harmful chemicals.
Dr Shalaka Samant Says…
The last active ingredient in ProSolution Gel is vitamin C. Folic acid, calcium, vitamin C, and vitamin E are known to support the biochemical pathways leading to nitric oxide release.
Oral doses of vitamin C (500-1000 mg) have been known to boost nitric oxide production. Oxidative stress has also been implicated in development of ED symptoms and here antioxidants like vitamin C might help.
Once again all the research focuses on oral administration of vitamin C. As a topical antioxidant, when applied as a part of ProSolution Gel, the vitamin C should lead to antiaging effects on the skin.
It is a common component of many externally applied pharmaceutical and cosmetic preparations and is also considered very safe for oral consumption.Read more
In addition to the 7 core ingredients that ProSolution Gel focuses on in their marketing speal, the gel also contains:
- Di-Propylene Glycol USP which acts as a carrier for aromas and flavours, no doubt for that menthol flavour
- Purified Water to give it it’s liquid consistency
- Carbomer which provides the gooey consistency of the gel
- Triethanolamine to give a good overall pH balance whilst also acting as an emulsifier
- Vegetable Glycerin, which contributes to the slightly sweet taste of the gel, creates a nice consistency but should be avoided if you plan to have unprotected sex with a woman after using it. Glycerine is known to cause yeast infections in many women.
- Hydroxyethyl cellulose is a thickening and gelling agent to give ProSolution Gel it’s consistency. It can also be used in capsules to improve a drugs ability to dissolve during digestion
- Methylparaben is used in a variety of skincare products and, whilst used as a food preservative does also have anti-fungal properties. Parabens do come with some controversy in the world of skincare. Show to be endocrine disruptors in higher amounts, they’re often avoided by those who prefer natural ingredients (or just don’t want their hormones messed with).
- Citric Acid acts as a food additive, providing flavour but also improves shelf life of ProSolution Gel
You’ll also find a number of natural and artificial flavors and preservatives although this aren’t specifically detailed or listed.
ProSolution Gel Money Back Guarantee
ProSolution Gel offers a competitive money back guarantee period much like the other products in the ProSolution and Leading Edge Health product range.
You get 67 days to try the product seemingly “risk free” giving you approximately 2 months to try ProSolution Gel and a further week to return all opened product boxes and used tubes of gel.
If you opt to take advantage of the money back guarantee period, you’ll need to cover the cost of return shipping and you won’t get a refund on the original delivery fees imposed at time of purchase.
In addition, as i’ve illustrated on a number of other Leading Edge Health product reviews, they are exceptionally strict on return timescales, so if your return doesn’t reach them within that 67 day window, expect not to receive a refund.
You’ll definitely want to select a courier that offers tracking and confirmation of delivery so you have proof your return arrived within the required refunds window.
By comparison 67 days is a pretty standard period to test ProSolution Gel out however if you think you’re going to need longer or simply want more piece of mind, direct competitor Instant Performer offers a whopping 6 month, or 180 day money back guarantee period, ultimately dwarfing ProSolution Gels risk free offering.
How Much Does ProSolution Gel Cost?
ProSolution Gel offers 6 different packages ranging from a single 1 tube supply all the way up to a 12 month package that includes freebies such as VolumePills, ProSolution Pills and access to Erection System – an albeit rather outdated online jelqing exercise program that can help you take steps in the right direction for increasing penile size.
Pricing starts at or per application (based on the suggested 30 applications per tube), and although a 12 tube supply is priced at a rather eye watering , that sees the price per tube drop to or per application.
In my view the pricing is a little steep, especially when you compare like for like with Instant Performer. You might not get bonus products with larger orders sizes with Instant Performer but with free shipping, more gel per tube and an overall price point that works out around 20% cheaper than ProSolution Gel, i personally think by direct comparison ProSolution Gel is just a little too steep price wise for my wallet.
|wdt_ID||ProSolution Gel||1 Mth||3 Mths||6 Mths||12 Mths|
|3||Price per Tube|
|5||Price per Application|
You do however need to factor in that on 3 month supplies or more of ProSolution Gel you get access to Erection System – an only jelqing exercise program which, although rather outdated in terms of video quality, does provide you with a means of enlarging your penis if you’ve got the time and patience.
If you want a means of increasing the size of your penis without resorting to a penis extender (like X4 Labs) or a penis pump (like Bathmate), then ProSolution Gel combined with the Erection System exercise are a good first step into the world of penis enlargement.
Does ProSolution Gel Work? My Verdict!
For me… no it didn’t, or at least not in any specific notable way but that might be due in part to having really good penile health and not suffering from any form of arousal issues.
I think as well, it’s worth noting that I didn’t use the provided Erection Fitness jelqing exercises. The exercises themselves were quite basic and felt out-dated, however they were straight forward, easy to understand and would no doubt have provided an added benefit to the effectiveness of the gel and to blood circulation.
Ultimately I wanted to focus entirely on the gel itself to ascertain it’s effectiveness.
I tried ProSolution Gel daily over the course of a number of consecutive days – each day I used ProSolution Gel I did so having not had any other sexual activity earlier in the day (that way my sexual stamina was at its peak).
I think it’s also worth noting that I took ProSolution Gel for a rather short 30 day period period of time – their website specifically highlights that for the best results you need to use ProSolution Gel ideally on a daily basis for 60-90 days as it takes time for the ingredients to build up in your body and for the peak of results to be attained.
Needless to say, that is very understandable and any consumable product like this gel but also any oils, creams, patches or pills will take time to build up in your system and produce results.
I started with 3 drops, massaging the gel into the penis as instructed on the product label. After roughly 5 minutes, with minimal massaging there was no signs of arousal.
I added a further 3 drops and continued to massage the penis – at this stage arousal was achieved however again there was no real difference in comparison to my usual speed or quality of erection.
There was also no notably difference in my control or stamina whilst if i stopped sexual activity my erection would weaken within a couple of minutes (as is usually the case without sexual stimulation).
By day 11 I’d already got a little bored of having to apply the gel to my penis even when I wasn’t planning on having sexual activity at some point during the day – it’s at this point that a pill or a patch would have been so much better, simply on a basis of convenience.
At this stage arousal levels were potentially a little fast, but by no means instant as claimed by the ProSolution Gel website – the gel has a light cooling sensation to it that some might also find feels a little tingly however, as i found, that isn’t an indication of the gel specifically starting to work.
Visual size of my penis was also on a par to how it looked prior to taking ProSolution Gel, that said it was during these days that my penis did at least seem to be more erect strength wise, whilst ejaculations were potentially a little more intense but not to the degree of making a clear difference.
In the last 10 days of my testing, specially during the last few days, my erections were that little bit more erect making the penis feel stiffer during arousal.
My penis also seemed pinker in colour and also more engorged especially around the head of the penis – likely as a result of the improved blood flow to the penis caused by the creation of nitric oxide.
By the end of the 30 days I wouldn’t say there was any major difference in terms of duration/stamina of sex prior to ejaculation and my orgasms were just as intense as normal.
I think if i’d continued using ProSolution Gel for longer, those additional results likely would have started to appear during arousal however I can’t see this product being able to offer instant erections when applied even after using it for many months (erections, even completely natural ones, take time).
The ProSolution Gel itself smells good and using between 3 and 6 drops per application, the gel is thin enough to coat the entire penis and be fully massaged in.
Despite ProSolution Gel including Erection System (a jelqing exercise program) on the larger order sizes, in my view ProSolution Gel isn’t really suitable for jelqing as after a few minutes of massaging, the gel gets absorbed into the penis and actually becomes quite sticky.
For jelqing exercises you definitely need a product with better, longer lasting lubrication or be willing to apply more ProSolution Gel to your penis.
ProSolution Gel Reviews
Have you tried ProSolution Gel? How did you get on? Did you see good results or was it a bit of a flop?
This review is based on my testing, thoughts and opinions but what do you think? If you’ve used ProSolution Gel, let us know how you got on by submitting your own, independent, unbiased review below.
Should I Buy Prosolution Gel?
Quite honestly ProSolution Gel wouldn’t be my first choice, but that’s not to say you shouldn’t buy it and try it!
It’s great having the jelqing exercises if you purchase larger order sizes and I think this could seriously improve your results but also be a great starting point for those that want to increase the size of their penis without the expense of a penis extender or penis pump.
In terms of the amount of gel per tube and also the price per tube, there are cheaper, better value alternatives out there (such as Instant Performer).
If a jelqing exercise program is important to you and you want to use penile exercises as a means of penis enlargement, then ProSolution Gel is a good choice worth considering however you might find ProSolution Pills is a quicker, easier and less messy alternative – a pill you can simply take daily which also includes access to Erection System – or for those that suffer from premature ejaculation, the likes of sister brand ProSolution Plus.
I also think one key consideration is how often you see yourself actually using ProSolution Gel – i think if you have sex daily and plan on using the gel consistently it’s a good option however most of us find work and family life getting in the way and sex isn’t always possible every day.
With that in mind, something like ProSolution Pills might be a better, easier option – a pill you can simply take daily as part of your morning routine.
I think if I had taken ProSolution Gel for an even longer period of time, the results would have continued to improve (more so if i was following the Erection Fitness jelqing exercises) and I would have started to see more notably results however for me (personally) the pricing and amount of gel is a bit of a let down and I think there are potentially better options out there!
