Urgent Cell Repair Review

Urgent Cell Repair Review – Scam Supplement?

If you're looking for a review of the Urgent Cell Repair supplement that is being promoted like crazy online, then you're in the right place.

Is Urgent Cell Repair legit? Is it a scam? Will this supplement work? I'll be answering all of these questions in this review.

Phytage Labs' Urgent Cell Repair supplement is promoted in many different ways, with one of the most recent promotions I've come across claiming it is some "breakthrough immunity solution"...

sales pitch

And I also found a promotional video that differed a bit but said the same basic things...

video presentation

The main selling point of this supplement is that it can help rejuvenate cells, which can help improve health in a number of different ways - and there is also an emphasis on its ability to improve immune function, helping the body fight off infections.

The supplement consists of 27 natural ingredients that can restore every cell in your body within 30 days. and this is all supposedly backed by researchers at Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Johns Hopkins, and Stanford.

Some of the said benefits include:

  • support immune health to help fight off colds, viral infections, toenail fungus and more
  • improve skin health to get rid of cold sores, acne, etc.
  • increase kidney function
  • help with digestion and decrease IBS symptoms
  • increase cognitive ability
  • improve heart health
  • improve liver function to help wash away toxins and more...

HOWEVER, there are some red-flags that caught my attention.

Besides the fact that the sales presentation is a bit too... well... salesy... there was something else a bit alarming I came across.

The Doctor Behind It... Sounds Like a Fake

Dr. Charles Tate, who is a doctor that specializes in holistic and alternative medicine, came up with the formulation this supplement has... or so I thought. This is what I was told in the one sales pitch.

However, in the other sales pitch I came across I was being told that a Dr. Steve Klayman was the guy behind it.

This is a major red-flag for me, and so I decided to dig around a bit more. And, as it turns out, the picture shown of "Dr. Charles Tate" is actually a fake...

Dr. Charles Tate

Upon searching for the image online, I was able to find that it is just a stock photo that anyone can purchase and use online, meaning that this guy's name probably is NOT "Dr. Charles Tate"...

So who is the real doctor behind this product? This remains unknown.

The sales pitch is a bit much, and there are some major red-flags here... but let's get to the review and see how good this supplement really is...

What Is Urgent Cell Repair?

Urgent Cell Repair
  • Product: Urgent Cell Repair
  • Type: Health supplement
  • Manufacturer: Phytage Labs
  • Price: $69.95
  • Where to Buy: Official website here

Overview

Urgent Cell Repair is somewhat of a "jack of all trades" supplement. It is formulated with a long list of 27 natural ingredients and can help improve everything from immune health and your body's ability to fight off infections, to skin health and helping return skin to a youthful glow. 

In a nutshell, this supplement is a basically a multi-vitamin, that also includes minerals.

Some pros of Urgent Cell Repair include:

  • It's  formulated with 100% natural ingredients
  • It's made in the USA
  • These ingredients are scientifically proven - to some extent

- Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
- Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol)
- Vitamin E (di-Alpha tocopheryl acetate)
- Vitamin K-1 (phytonadione)

- Copper (cupric oxide)
- Manganese (sulfate)
- Chromium (amino acid chelate)
- Molybdenum (amino acid chelate)
- Chloride
- Potassium (chloride)
- Boron (amino acid chelate)

Are They Really Proven to Work?

Are these ingredients proven to work? Well, yes, they are. However, don't get your hopes up too much. 

What we have here is a supplement that is a concoction of vitamins and minerals, all of which are well studied and well-known.

With a long line-up of 27 ingredients like this it very well could have the long list of benefits it is promoted as having, such as the benefits of improving immune health, heart health, kidney and liver health, leading to younger looking and healthier skin, etc.

  • Vitamin C supports immune health
  • Vitamin E's high level of antioxidants can protect the body from viruses like the flu [source: ResearchGate] - and there are lot's of other ingredients here with high levels of antioxidants, all beneficial to the immune system
  • The B vitamins and vitamin E in the formula are well-known to improve hair and skin health, as well as some of the minerals such as zinc
  • Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to everything from liver diseases to decreased immunity
  • And so on.

I'm not going to go through every single ingredient here because it would take me all day.

The point is that these are all proven. But don't think of this supplement as some sort of miracle cure. Just about everything in this supplement can be easily provided through a healthy diet of normal foods.

If you are eating a healthy and balanced diet, then you are probably already getting optimal amounts of most of these ingredients, and supplementing more of them isn't going to do you any good. However, Americans and citizens of other developed countries are notorious for poor diets, diets that consist of large amounts of processed foods... that lead to deficiencies in vitamins and minerals.

Statistics have been improving in recent years, but still... according to Kresser Institute about 31 percent of the US population is at risk for at least one vitamin deficiency or anemia... and some sources report even more alarming numbers.

Looking at the statistics, a supplement like this should be able to help out a large amount of the population.

Any Side Effects?

There shouldn't be any. Of course it's always recommended that you talk to your doctor before hand, because it seems this has to be said nowadays... but the reality is that the ingredients this supplement has are all natural and well-studied.

And they are provided in moderate amounts.

No side effects have been reported that I have seen, and I wouldn't expect any.

Cost & Refunds

The cost is $69.95 for one bottle. This price might decrease the more you purchase, but I'm not really sure.

$69.95 for a 30 day supply is pretty expensive in my opinion. But then again, this does contain quite a large lineup of ingredients and the quality of the ingredients can make a big difference.

As far as refunds go, they have a 90-day money-back guarantee, which is pretty darn good... a better return policy than stores like Walmart or even Amazon. According to them, you can return the used bottle to get your money back at any period within 90 days of ordering...

*I'm guessing you will have to pay for the return shipping however! And I'm also not sure how big of a hassle their return policy is.

The Company Behind It

Phytage Labs is the manufacturer of this supplement. They have a B- rating with the BBB, which is decent, but do have a number of complaints as well.

It seems that most of the complaints stem from their over-the-top and misleading advertising practices as well as spamming people via email.

This company is also behind Tinnitus 911, Keto T-911 and many other supplements, which are usually promoted in rather extravagant and ridiculous fashion.

They are not the most trustworthy company it seems, but at least their products are made in the USA - this means they are subject to more strict regulations than, say, China... as an example.

Pros v Cons

Pros

  • Natural and proven ingredients
  • No side-effects
  • Large variety of ingredients
  • Has a number of various health benefits - due to the large variety of ingredients
  • Made in the USA
  • 90 day refund policy

Cons

  • Fairly common ingredients - many people probably already get adequate amounts from their normal diets
  • Over-hyped marketing practices used
  • Company doesn't have the best reputation
  • Pretty expensive

Is Urgent Cell Repair a Scam?

The only reason I'm answering this is because I know some people will be asking because of the over-hyped marketing material around this product, which can make things seem scammy.

No, Urgent Cell Repair is not a scam. Just don't expect it to be the amazing miracle product that it is touted as being.

Conclusion - Worth a Try?

Urgent Cell Repair is 100% natural, contains 27 ingredients that are proven to work (to some extent) and well-researched... but is pretty expensive and the company doesn't have the greatest reputation. 

So should you give it a try?

Well, this is up to you.

I think it could be beneficial to a lot of people out there because of the poor diets and nutrition people get nowadays, but just don't expect this to be some sort of miracle cure... because it is not.

You can purchase Urgent Cell Repair here if you'd like.

Also, you should be aware that there are cheaper alternatives available. These can be hard to compare however, because, for example, two supplements might contain the same amount of vitamin A, but we don't know which is better quality.

I hope you found this review helpful. And, if so, please share it to spread the word.

Myco Ultra Scam

Myco Ultra – Scam Supplement or Does It Work?

Is Myco Ultra really as good as people are saying it is? Or is this just another scam supplement that is going to be a waste of your money?

In this review I'll be going over what you need to know before buying this. I'm glad you took the time to do a little extra research. I'll be going over what exactly this supplement is, the ingredients, whether or not there is any proof that it actually works, what other people are saying about it, complaints and more.

They claim it is the "#1 immunity mushroom supplement" on the market, but of course who knows how true a statement like this actually is. Personally I don't believe this statement because this supplement isn't even all that popular.

But anyways... Myco Ultra is claimed to…

  • Boost your immune system
  • Have life span extending properties
  • Have ingredients backed by clinical studies

The main focus of this supplement is to improve your immune health.

This is important because the immune system is your body's defense against invaders.... invaders like bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungus and anything that can potentially make you sick. 

Many people live a lower level of life for years due to infections they don't even know they have.

Our immune systems are working around the clock, day and night, to keep us healthy and it is important for us to help them do their jobs, which you can do by eating healthy and staying fit.

So basically Myco Ultra is supposed to keep you feeling healthy and good, and they claim that people taking it have experienced increased energy and just an overall better feeling throughout the day.

But this is just what they tell you, and as you probably know you can't always trust what you hear from supplement companies. After all, they are trying to sell their supplements so of course they're going to mostly just talk about all the good things.

Does it REALLY work? Let's find out…

Myco Ultra Review

  • Name: Myco Ultra
  • Type: Immune support supplement
  • Ingredients: Mushroom blend
  • Price: Varies depending on amount purchased
  • Legit?: Yes

Myco Ultra is an immune boosting supplement that consists of 8 different ingredients, all of which are mushrooms.

Now when most people think of giving their immune system a boost, they usually don't think of mushrooms. They usually think of maybe eating a few extra oranges to get more vitamin C or something along those lines. That said, there is actually quite a bit of scientific evidence showing that certain mushrooms can be effective at giving your immune system the boost it might need.

In the Western world this isn't all that well known, but consuming mushrooms as a traditional Chinese medicine has been around for thousands of years.

To be completely honest, when I first came across this supplement I was thinking it was probably going to be another over-hyped scam, but I actually think it could actually be pretty good for some people with weakened immune systems.

The 8 Ingredients

You can take a look at the label for Myco Ultra here... 

Myco Ultra Label

Now I don't know if you can read that, and if you can't it is okay. I will go over each ingredient.

With each capsule that you take you get a 700 mg blend of the following 8 mushrooms…

  • Reishi
    • This has been shown to affect the genes of white blood cells,  which play a huge role in our immune system. They are what devour invaders that enter our bodies.
    • Some research, such as as study published in Immunological Investigations, has shown that reishi can increase levels of Natural Killer white blood cells, which is good.
  • Maitake
  • Agaricus blazei
    • This mushroom is native to Brazil but is even used in as far as Japan for medicinal purposes.
    • It has been shown to have medicinal effects on tumors, infections, allergies and inflammation in a 2011 study.
  • Cordyceps sinensis P.E.
    • This may sound gross, but Cordyceps is actually a fungus/mushroom that lives on caterpillars in the high mountains of China... However, most supplements grow this in laboratories.
    • According to WebMD, it "might" stimulate cells and chemicals that can boost the immune system, although there is no hard evidence of such.
  • Lion's mane extract
    • There are many benefits of supplementing Lion's Mane, such as less stress and anxiety, reduced risk of heart disease, helps with diabetes, and even improved immunity against diseases as deadly as cancer.
    • This 2011 study from Food & Function found that Lion's mane can increase the death rate of cancer cells, in particular leukemia cancer cells.
  • Pleurotus eryngii (King Trumpet)
    • This mushroom is native to the Mediterranean area, but is also cultivated in other parts of the world. An amino acid that it has named ergothioneine is what is responsible for much of its antioxidant activity, which helps keep disease away.
    • This also has what are called statins, which are compounds that help fight off diseases.
  • Antrodia camphorate
    • Antrodia camphorate, or AC for short, is a fungus that is native to Taiwan and grows inside the trunk of a tree.  Use of this for medicinal purposes dates back many years.
    • It has been shown to inhibit cancer cell proliferation, provides a good source of antioxidants that can protect against aging and more.
  • Turkey tail mushroom powder
    • This immune boosting mushroom has lots of antioxidants and contains polysaccharopeptides, which can really help give your immune system a boost.
    • Has been shown to possibly improve immune response against cancer cells.

Mushrooms like these are a great source of beta-glucans, which have been shown to boost the immune system and help fight off diseases and illness in many studies.

Any Side Effects?

They state that there are no side effects that have been observed.

Now of course there are probably some potential side effects, because it seems like there is always at least someone that has a negative reaction to just about anything, but generally speaking there are not any that you have to worry about.

I don't know the amounts of each ingredient but there can't be that much because the entire mix is only 750mg.

This is one of the big upsides to taking a natural health supplement such as this… No side effects.

The Cost

Try not to jump out of your seat, because the price is a bit high.

You can purchase one bottle for $60, two bottles for $109.95, or 4 bottles for $173.

Now of course the 4 bottle deal is the best, because you get the most for your money's worth, but that is also a good chunk of money to spend all at once.

price

When I first saw the price I thought it was pretty darn high, but after looking around at other similar products, such as those on Amazon, I found that it really isn't too bad.

Slightly Cheaper Alternative:

However, if you do want a slightly cheaper alternative then another good choice is Host Defense on Amazon. It has most of the same ingredients plus some, and sells for around $50 for a 30 day supply.

What I Like/ Don't Like

What I Like

  • Variety of different mushrooms in the mix which can help boost your immune system from different angles
  • Good amount of science to back up the claims that it works
  • Doesn't give you bad breath like other mushroom supplements (so they say)

What I Don't Like

  • A bit pricey (but it seems like other alternatives are as well)
  • The advertising for this supplement is a bit over-the-top (like how they say Big Pharma is trying to cover up the truth)

What Users Are Saying About It

Unfortunately I wasn't able to find much in the way of reviews for Myco Ultra from people who have actually used it, however I was able to find quite a bit of good reviews from similar supplements out there.

Mushroom blends like this seem to be pretty good at giving your immune system a little natural boost. In fact, I'm thinking about buying some to keep on hand when I feel sickness coming on.

Final Verdict - Scam or Not?

As I mentioned earlier, when I first came across this supplement I thought it was just going to be another over-priced scam. However, I was pleasantly surprised after looking into it further.

This is not a scam as far as I see and very well could help give your immune system the boost you have been looking for.

Will it work for everyone? No. But could it work for you? Yes.
