My SeroVital Review (2023) – Scam Or Worth The Complaints?

My SeroVital Review (2021) - Scam Or Worth The Complaints?

It's time for my SeroVital review, which is one of the most popular anti-aging supplements.

But if you take a closer look – it might be a scam:

  • many complaints and unsatisfied users
  • lots of side effects behind
  • extremely expensive

So is this product potentially dangerous?

Well – I tried to dig really deep into it, so here's what I discovered (+ video).

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on SeroVital.

Review Summary

Full Name: SeroVital by SeroVital

Product Type: Anti-Aging/HGH Boosting Supplement

Best Actual Price: Between $78-$107 (depending on the version)

Cheapest Place To Buy: Probably Amazon

Designed For: Anti-aging prevention and reduction – according to its claims:

  • rejuvenates skin 
  • increases energy levels and promotes sleep
  • supports immunity

My Rating: 4 out of 10

Recommended?: No, for sure – it's far from a high-quality product:

  • based on pretty weak ingredients in low doses
  • requires too many pills per day
  • lots of complaints about its effect
  • very high price

Instead – I recommend a cheaper alternative with a much higher rate of satisfied users.


What I Liked About It

  • Made by a reputable company with a professional website
  • Available on 3rd party retailers as well
  • Many authentic opinions available about it


What I Didn't Like About It

  • Pretty weak ingredients (especially in the Original version)
  • Most compounds don't have any individual doses given out
  • Huge serving size (4/6 pills per day)
  • Many complaints about its poor effect
  • High risk of severe side effects
  • Very expensive for its real value
  • Prices are much higher on its official website than on retailers



SeroVital – A Quick Overview

Shortly – SeroVital is an anti-aging supplement that claims to have some unique benefits.

But judging after its customer feedback, that's not really the case (or at least not in the positive way).

Now – SeroVital comes in 3 main versions:

  1. Original
  2. Advanced
  3. Powder

The first 2 are the most popular (since they are the supplements).

As for the powder version – it contains the same ingredients as the Original form, but in a soluble version.

Other than that, SeroVital sells some additional products (which are not very popular or amazing, though).

Now – it's true that this product looks awesome on paper.

But it's quite the opposite in reality.

And it's not me saying this:

  • it has lots of complaints in all chapters
  • most of its first pages reviews are very negative
  • many of its users say they regret buying it

So SeroVital might have been a good product in the past – but it's clearly not one anymore.

That's why, given all the problems it currently has, it's a supplement I would stay away from.



#1 – Claims & Producer

I will begin by giving you some general info on this supplement:

  • how exactly it works
  • what issues it addresses 
  • who is the company behind it 
1. Claims

This supplement claims to be “America's #1 anti-aging therapy”.

And according to its website – its main goal is to reduce the signs of aging.

In terms of action mechanism – it's the typical HGH booster:

  • formula designed to increase HGH production
  • this has several health benefits
  • its anti-aging proprieties are the biggest one

Now, when it comes to its claims – I doubt SeroVital does what it promises.

If it really did, it would not have such an impressive number of complaints.

Plus – it's surely not America's top anti-aging product:

  • no study that proves this
  • not too many satisfied users
  • no awards that certify this

So when it comes to these claims, I personally don't trust SeroVital too much.

2. Company Behind

This product's name is actually its brand name.

Its producer is called SeroVital – or at least there's no other name given out:

  • have several products in their portofolio
  • the main ones are 3 anti-aging supplements (2 versions + powder)
  • there is also a hair supplement
  • additionally, they also sell topical skin products (mostly cleansers)

In terms of authenticity – SeroVital looks like a trustworthy brand.

So I'm pretty sure it's not a scam from this point of view.

Still, I personally don't consider its products are amazing (as they also cost quite a lot).



#2 – Formula (6 out of 10)

SeroVital's composition could be much better overall.

However – it's worth noting that its 2 versions have some different formulas:

  • Original form only contains 6 active compounds
  • Advanced version contains Original + 7 extra compounds

Now – the Advanced version has a pretty good formula overall.

In terms of ratings, I would give it an 8/10.

But the Original form is much weaker (probably a 4/10).

So as an average – SeroVital's formula isn't worth more than 6/10.

Now, let's take each version by turn.

1. SeroVital Original

Basically, the original version contains one main ingredient (Renewal Complex – 2.9 g).

This complex is made from 6 active substances.

However – the individual dose of each isn't mentioned:

  • most likely the quantities are extremely low
  • the overall dose (2.9 g) is very low itself

So from this point of view – the formula looks very disappointing and weak.

Now, here are the 6 active compounds inside the Renewal Complex:

  1. L-Lysine HCl – it's used together with arginine to increase its efficiency.
  2. L-Arginine HCl – stimulates HGH production up to 3 times. [1]
  3. Oxo-Proline – promotes cellular repair and health.
  4. N-Acetyl L-Cysteine – it's an antioxidant that fights free radicals and improves sleep.
  5. L-Glutamine – works best for muscle support and maintenance.

As you can see – SeroVital Original's formula isn't anything special.

It mostly contains some pretty common amino acids and no original/trademark compound.

2. SeroVital Advanced

Compared to the Original version, this one is clearly superior.

That's because it contains all the ingredients from the previous version – plus some additional ones:

  1. Vitamin C (22 mg) – it's a very strong antioxidant with skin benefits.
  2. Vitamin D (33 mcg) – boosts general health and energy.
  3. Riboflavin (30 mg) – it's essential for a health skin and hair. [2]
  4. Zinc (14 mg) – increases immunity and improves skin.
  5. Selenium (60 mcg) – acts as a powerful antioxidant.
  6. Copper (0.9 mg) – helps immunity and increases energy.
  7. Proprietary Blend (1016 mg) – it's a mix of several herbal extracts.

Now – out of all these ingredients, it's mostly the Proprietary Blend that has an anti-aging role.

The others are mostly meant for energy and general health.

So let's see the substances inside this blend (again, there are no individual doses):

  • Chorella
  • Herbal Extracts: Lady's Mantle, Olive, Cumin, Coffee, Wild Bean
  • Smart Release Purified Japanese Glucomannan
  • Triticum Aestivum Extract
  • Peptides: Collagen, Keratin [3]
  • Hyaluronic Acid

Now – even this composition isn't amazing, compared to other supplement.

But it's definitely better than the Original version.


SeroVital's composition is pretty disappointing overall.

Especially if we're talking about the Original version.

The Advanced form is indeed better (mostly because of its Proprietary Blend).

But none of them is extremely valuable, if you ask me.

Considering that both of them cost a little fortune – I would surely not recommend any.




#3 – Pills & Dosage (2 out of 10)

There are some really weird things about SeroVital here, if you ask me.

1. The Pills

Surprisingly or not – the 2 versions of this supplement have some totally different pills.

Let me explain – first of all, the Original form:

  • it's designed as capsules
  • they have a bright yellow cover
  • their dimensions are a bit larger (than most gelatin capsules)

Now – swallowing these pills should not be too hard.

They are indeed a bit bigger than most capsules – but you should be able to take them easily.

Secondly, things look quite different when it comes to the Advanced form.

That's because there are 3 types of pills:

  • yellow ones (exactly like those from the Original version)
  • red ones (tablets)
  • white ones (tablets again)

Basically – you have to take a certain amount of each type of pills (more in the lines below).

Surprisingly or not, the 2 tablets are actually smaller than the yellow capsules.

So swallowing them should be even easier actually. 

2. The Dosage

Now – let's see how exactly you should take these pills (because the serving size is quite tricky).

First of all, the Original version:

  • serving size is 4 capsules per day
  • it's recommended to take them all together (in the morning/evening)

As for the Advanced form:

  • serving size is 6 pills per day (4 yellow capsules + 1 red tablet + 1 white tablet)
  • morning dose is the 2 tablets (red + white)
  • evening dose is the 4 yellow pills

Basically – the daily dosages of SeroVital are huge.

It's true that in terms of quality, you're not getting a lot of the active ingredients.

But in terms of quantity – 6 (or even 4) pills every day is very inconvenient.

And there's one more thing.

The label recommends not to eat/drink anything for 2 hours before and after taking the 4 yellow pills.

Honestly – this recommendation is extremely hard to follow.

That's why SeroVital's dosage is very uncomfortable and inconvenient.

In fact – it's probably the hardest-to-take supplement among anti-aging products.



#4 – Results (5 out of 10)

In order to see how this supplement works – I decided to look at its customer feedback.

Since SeroVital is a very popular product, find some real opinions on it was quite easy.

Note: I only analyzed authentic reviews, not promotional ones.

1. Positive Opinions

This product is available both on Amazon and on its official website.

However – the reviews it has on both pages are quite different:

  • Amazon has lots of complaints (especially recent ones)
  • SeroVital's website has mostly positive reviews

As I always say – official websites tend to show only (or mostly) positive reviews.

That's why I consider those opinions false-positive.

For this reason, I will only include here the reviews SeroVital has on Amazon.

So here's what most satisfied users say about it:

  1. Some people say they can really spot a difference in their skin.
  2. Others claim they started looking younger after a few months.
  3. Some praise its effect on their energy.
  4. A few others say it's really good for general well-being.

However, it's worth noting that many of these positive reviews are rather old (2017 or less).

There are some actual ones, as well.

But most of the recent opinions (and the more important ones) are rather negative.

2. Negative Opinions

For both versions – most reviews from Amazon's first page are extremely negative:

  1. Many people complain about side effects.
  2. Lots of users claim it's a scam that didn't help them at all.
  3. Some others say it's too pricey for its value.
  4. Many users claim it actually made them feel much worse than before.

In my opinion, all these similar complaints cannot be a coincidence.

Especially since they are all on top of SeroVital's reviews.

That's why I honestly doubt this product's effectiveness.


SeroVital has a huge number of authentic reviews.

But surprisingly or not – many of them are severely criticizing it.

So both versions of this supplement seem pretty dangerous overall.

That's why there's no way I could recommend SeroVital.

Especially when there's a much cheaper alternative with a way better effect.




#5 – Side Effects (3 out of 10)

Unlike most anti-aging supplement, SeroVital has a huge per cent of negative reviews.

And a big part of these complaints are actually related to side effects:

  1. Severe exhaustion and loss of energy
  2. Headaches and vertigo
  3. Edema, swelling and inflammation
  4. Acne and breakouts
  5. General weakness and pain

Now – most of these complaints are quite uncommon for HGH boosters.

They usually cause issues like stomach cramps, nausea, minor headaches.

And even so – those secondary reactions usually appear quite rarely.

On the other hand, they seem to be extremely common when it comes to SeroVital.

That's why I advise you to think twice before going for this supplement (in any version).



#6 – Price (3 out of 10)

Another bad thing about SeroVital is that it's extremely expensive.

HGH boosters tend to be quite pricey in general – but SeroVital is way above the average.

1. The Exact Price

As I already told you – this product is mostly sold in 2 places:

  1. Its official website (higher prices)
  2. Amazon (much cheaper)

It's somehow an irony that its website offers much higher prices than Amazon (which is a retailer after all).

Official websites tend to have much better deals than 3rd party sellers.

But that's obviously not the case here.

That's why I'm going to analyze Serovital's price on Amazon (and I recommend you to get it from there):

  1. Original version costs $99 normally (around $78 at the moment due to discounts).
  2. Advanced version costs $119 normally (and about $107 right now).
  3. These are the prices for a monthly supply.
  4. There's no discount if you buy several boxes at once.

Basically – this product is extremely expensive itself.

Not to mention that its formula is very disappointing and that it could be pretty dangerous (according to its reviews).

So I would clearly not recommend it in any form.

2. Competitors' Price

I only want to compare SeroVital with my #1 recommended anti-aging supplement.

It's a product called GenF20 Plus:

  1. Compared to SeroVital, GenF20 Plus has a much better formula.
  2. It also has a high number of satisfied users.
  3. In terms of price, SeroVital costs between $99-$119.
  4. Due to Amazon discounts, you can get it for $78-$107.
  5. GenF20 Plus is much cheaper, in comparison.
  6. Its regular price is about $70.
  7. However, it offers a discount for larger quantities (around $58).

Compared to SeroVital – GenF20 Plus is a better choice from all points of view.

It's stronger, cheaper, highly praised and it has a much smaller serving size.

So it's a much better deal overall.


SeroVital is one of the priciest HGH-boosters from the market.

It's true that it's been very popular at one point.

But at the moment – it's clearly not a good option anymore.

So there's no way I could recommend a supplement of this kind.




#7 – Final Conclusions

Here's how I would sum up my opinion on SeroVital (in 3 ideas).

1. Disappointing Composition

Both versions of this supplement have some pretty basic formulas.

It's true that the Advanced form is superior (since it contains some extra stuff).

But compared to other HGH-boosters – they could be a lot better in terms of ingredients.

2. Huge Serving Size

This is a specific problem of this supplement:

  • Original version requires 4 capsules (taken at once)
  • Advanced form requires 6 pills (2 tablets in the morning and 4 capsules in the evening)

Moreover – it also recommends not eating/drinking 2 hours before and after taking the 4 capsules.

To be honest, this dosage is extremely difficult to follow.

3. Potentially Dangerous

Judging after the huge number of complaints it has, SeroVital is far from a safe product:

  • many negative reviews (especially recent ones)
  • lots of complaints on side effects
  • a lot of unsatisfied customers

Besides – the side effects reported by many users are not very common for HGH-boosters.

That's why you're taking a risk if you go for Serovital.



#8 – My Video Review



My Verdict – Worth It Or Not?

Short answer: Definitely not worth it.

I cannot call it a scam – since I have no actual proof that it is one.

But it's far from a good supplement (from most points of view):

  1. Pretty weak formula and ingredients.
  2. Huge serving size (4-6 pills/day).
  3. Many users that didn't notice any change.
  4. Lots of complaints about side effects.
  5. Very expensive for an anti-aging supplement.

So SeroVital scored pretty low in most chapters I analyzed – that's why there's no way I could recommend it.

But what should you go for instead?

My top pick is another HGH-booster called GenF20 Plus:

  • much better ingredients in higher doses
  • high rate of satisfied customers
  • considerably cheaper

Compared to SeroVital, GenF20 Plus is much better in every aspect.

So between these 2 – I would definitely go for it.

  1. So basically after reading your review, Serovital costs more but offers less? These big companies are very tiring, they get and get money and they don’t give a lot or even assurance of the product’s effectivity. I am looking for hgh releaser supplement but this will not be part of my list. Maybe it will take a long time for me to look for a good product. thanks for the review!

    1. Hi, Mich! Based on our careful research and understanding, Serovital is quite expensive for its values. Maybe it’s not a bad product but we always want the best supplement to invest our money in. So if we really want to get the best value for our money, it’s our responsibility to do our research and choose only the best. If you have free time, you can check our review for GenF20 Plus. Thank you and have a nice day!

  2. Good evening. Let me give you a little background of what I do in life because I want to ask you some good tips about my life and health. I work online and some articles said that screen time is one of the reasons that can contribute to deteriorating skin health and also overall health. My face has been developing some fine lines and I want to treat them from the inside and out because I don’t think topical is enough to really slow down aging. Do you have better supplements like Serovital? Thank you. – Greta

    1. Hello, Greta! I read some studies too that the screen or the blue light that comes from our gadget can also contribute to our skin’s aging process. If you want some tips, you read our articles called How To Stay Young & Prevent Aging In 8 Steps (2021) and How To Reverse Aging In 13 Steps (2021). Now, if you’re looking for a supplement that can help you from the inside and out, you can try our #1 recommendation called GenF20 Plus. I hope you will find the right product for you and you can start combatting signs of aging as early as now. Have a nice evening!

  3. Spot on review and analysis of this product, Olly! Honestly, I pretty much consider this a scam. As one of its previous users, I thought that having acne is normal because you know, it might just be the way this product works. However, it kept on getting worse to the point that I’ve had to stop using it and go to the derma. Basically, I wasted my time and money for this. I should have kept on using GenF20 as I found it effective instead of switching to this.

    1. Hello Adelaide! Thank you for the compliment and your feedback on this product. It’s sad that it did not work on you and have given you more problems instead of minimizing or eliminating them. It’s unfortunate but I think that at least we have learnt something about it. If you feel uncomfortable about a product, I think that it’s best to stop using it altogether. Health is more important than money and even the pandemic reminded this to us. GenF20 is one of the best products in the market so I think it’s better to use it than SeroVital. Hope you are doing well now.

      Stay safe,

  4. Do not make the same mistake as I did. I feel worse than ever because I did not do more research about this. I trusted the wrong people (promotional feedbacks) and ended up compromising the health of my mother. Nothing feels worse than knowing that it’s all your fault. Again, don’t buy this product. Save yourself.

    1. Hi Mark, I’m sorry this happened to you… I don’t even have the words to express how I feel so how much more you? I’m sure that you did it with good intentions, same with the recipient of your gift so don’t be too harsh on yourself. Again, I get your point and may people also heed your warning. Thank you so much for this and I hope your mom gets well soon.


  5. Thank god I did not buy to gift this product. From what I have read? Even I would not risk trying this product if I happen to buy it. The side effect is too worrying/damaging so I’d rather not risk it. I guess I better find other products.

    Most important thing that I learned today: keep on researching and be skeptical

    1. Hello, Kyle. Angelica here. We’re so thankful that you found our review article for SeroVital useful. Taking time to know more about a product is really important to protect yourself and others from harm. However, calls for companies that do not take responsibility must still pervade because it only harms instead of benefiting consumers. If you want a legitimate product that offers both good effect and good price, take a look at Kollagen Intensiv. If you think that we are paid, I assure you that we aren’t and that is the farthest from the truth. We only want to help people decide for themselves and make information more accessible to everyone. We do researches about the products and reviews them from an objective perspective so be assured.

      I hope you find this helpful and may you find the best product for you.

    1. Hi Donna, I can assure you that I’m not “behind” GenF20 Plus or any other product I praise/criticize on my website, simply because I’m not working for any company, so I don’t have any reason to say good/bad things about a product unless I mean it. Obviously, you can believe anything you want, but I simply recommend GenF20 Plus because I really consider it one of the best products against aging.

    1. Hi Hailey, thanks for sharing your positive results with SeroVital and I’m happy to hear it worked for you. But there are so many people complaining about its side reactions and about the fact that it causes severe exhaustion, acne, inflammation and a lot more problems. You don’t have to take my word for it, so feel free to check all the reviews of this product on various sellers and you will see how many complaints it has. Not to mention that it has several other weak points (huge serving size, high price, no results in a lot of users, etc.).

      So there’s no way I could praise SeroVital in these conditions.

  6. SeroVital have caused Cancer in me. I took this product for a year and 3rd degree Colon Cancer was found in me after that. I went through 8 times Chimo Therapies. Lost all the long hair of my head. Lost flexibility on my extremities. Do not take this product. it is very BAD. I lost my job, health, of course youth. I almost died. I am officially handy-capped now and live on Social Assistance.

    1. Hey Grace, I’m so sorry about your fight with cancer, it must have been so terrible to go through this. It’s really heartbreaking for me to hear all that and I really wish you all the best in your life.

      I’m not a fan of SeroVital, as you probably noticed from this review as well. However, I really doubt it’s this product that caused your cancer. Unfortunately, colon cancer is extremely common worldwide, so it might have all been just an unfortunate coincidence. HGH boosters (the category of supplements where SeroVital belongs) have been studied for a long time and there wasn’t any proof that they actually cause cancer (or that they are linked to cancer in anyway). So if you ask me, as bad as it sounds, I really doubt this product caused your cancer (or any other supplement you’ve been taking).

      I wish you a speedy recovery and hopefully you can get back to where you used to be!

  7. To the commenter above, if this worked out well for you, great! However, I cannot take how you invalidated every single negative impact this product had to other people. Shame on you for being self-centered. FYI, I experienced the worse symptoms to the point that I had to be hospitalized. I hate this company and if given the chance, I would whole heartedly sue this company–it’s just that money is tight right now and I cannot spend more effort on this with the rising rent and whatnots nowadays. Frankly, I would very much prefer to look for another product because this is only stressing me out.

    Anyway, just a reminder to all other people to please do not be entitled and invalidate other’s suffering.


    1. Hi Xandy, thank you for your comment. I’m pretty sure she understands it. Maybe, it’s just that she really loves this product so much though that does not excuse actions that belittles others. Also, I’m sorry that you have had a bad experience with this product. Hopefully, you are now on the way to full recovery. It’s really unfair that we suffer consequences for trusting brands that fails us in the end. With that, I think taking a look at this guide comprised of both medicine and natural way for our skin can be helpful to you. Everything depends on you and your commitment so hopefully this can be helpful to you.

  8. This product is a money making SCAM. They promise to help with reducing wrinkles, losing weight and taking the 4 giant pills before bedtime will result in a good night’s sleep – NOT. I NEVER lost any weight, saw no changes in my wrinkles and had nightmares from taking the nighttime pills. I ordered thru HGTV and they will not give my money back. I also called SeroVital and even though it is their product, they will not give me my money back because I ordered THEIR product on-air. Such a scummy business to run and I am reporting this to BBB and others as this is a scam that cost my a ton of money!

    1. Thank you for your feedback, Jane, I agree that SeroVital has a couple of question signs, but I had no idea their customer service and refunds were so bad. You should definitely report them to BBB if you can.
