Praventac Capsule Review 2017

There are Praventac reviews on the Praventac forum on acne.org from customers who have taken the product. Some have said that it has worked very well for them even though during the first weeks of taking it they broke out badly.

Also in their review they mentioned that results come very slowly over time. After about three months they noticed that their skin was clearing while also taking another Praventac product called "AG factor".

Praventac Reviews 2016

This customer Praventac review was negative in that the user started taking the supplement and experienced more acne than before they started taking it.

My face is terrible, the pimple are very red and itchy. I asked the staff, they said my body may decide whether it should be detoxify or not. Do I have to stop it? Pimples are all over my face.. Does anyone has the same situation after taking praventac? What should I do to reduce the redness?

Many other users who commented on the review said that the supplement made their acne so bad and they would never use it again.

Although Lactoferrin does not contain any lactose, it is still derived from milk and there could be a microscopic amount of lactose in these pills so they may not be completely dairy free which could be problematic for some people.

Praventac reviews in the Philippines can be found online on websites like acne.org. This country has the most interest in the product.

This is the nutritional breakdown of the ingredients and not the actual amount of each ingredient. This means that this stack is a proprietary blend although they do not actually disclose that it is on their website.

The pills are halal certified. Most websites do not give this information on their websites, but since this product is popular in Muslim countries they contain this information on their website.

Halal refers to what is permissible by Muslim law just as Kosher refers to Jewish law.


This is the main ingredient in this food supplement. It's main role is to boost the immune system which helps to reduce inflammation and fight bacteria that causes acne.

Lactoferrin is naturally found in breast milk and is also present in all bodily fluids including saliva and tears. (1)

A study showed that people between the ages of 18-30 who were given Lactoferrin had a decrease in acne.​

Benefits of Lactoferrin

-Antioxidant properties

-Reduces inflammation

-Protects against bacteria, fungus, and viruses

-Aids in detoxification and digestion

-Boosts immune system


-Does not contain lactose

Pomegranate Extract

By now we have all heard of the benefits of Pomegranate as it is very much promoted in the media as a "superfood", but is this ingredient actually effective for acne?

The main benefit of pomegranate extract is that it has many antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect the body's cells from becoming damaged by free radicals which are any type of "foreign" invader that the body is not used to.

Free radicals can damage skin cells which cause inflammation and early signs of aging. Increased inflammation in the body can lead to acne breakouts and make current blemishes red and inflamed.

Mangosteen is a fruit that contains many essential nutrients including calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium.

Like pomegranate extract, it contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Mangosteen may be beneficial to breakouts in that it's anti-inflammatory properties may lower P.acnes which is the bacteria that causes inflammation in acne. (2)

It has also been shown in a study to have anti-cancer benefits as well. (3)

The Praventac acne pills should be taken along with eating a healthy diet low in sugar, dairy, and high-glycemic carbohydrates as these types of food cause hormonal fluctuations in our body which give us side effects such as pimples and cysts.

The ingredients individually have side effects as well.

praventac side effects

Lactoferrin may cause diarrhea and skin rashes which is why some people may experience itchy skin.

Although rare, some people may be allergic to mangosteen.
It may also interfere with chemotherapy drugs as mangosteen protects cells in the body from damage, but when someone undergoes chemotherapy the point is to destroy the cells that contain cancer.

Most people do not experience side effects from pomegranate extract, but some people may have a sensitivity to it which may cause itching and swelling.

Check with your doctor if you experience any of these common problems. If you experience any severe side effects or problems seek medical attention immediately. Always read warnings, labels, and directions as well.

Other Common FAQs

  • what is the dose?
  • Does it reduce acne scars?
  • is it safe during pregnancy?

Although it has antioxidant effects the supplement is unlikely to improve the appearance of acne scars.


Hopefully this 2018 Praventac review and other customers reviews can help you make a decision about whether or not this product is right for you.

We do not think that Praventac is a scam, but we are just unsure of how effective this supplement is because besides Lactoferrin the other ingredients may not really do anything specifically for acne.

The company promotes that they have a 95% success rate, but there are no studies backing the effectiveness of this food supplement.

Over time this product may become expensive especially for teens and adolescents who are struggling with breakouts.​
