Prosvent – how does it stack up to Best Prostate?
We have received a few phone calls regarding Prosvent vs. Best Prostate.
1 soft gel capsule of Prosvent contains 363 mg of a proprietary blend of Saw Palmetto (fruit) Extract, Pumpkin (seed) Oil, Stinging Nettle (Root) Extract, Pygeum Africanum, Lycopene. In addition you will get 100 IU of Vitamin D, 100IU of Vitamin E (as-alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), 5 mg Zinc (as Zinc Sulfate), and 75 mcg of Selenium (as Selenomethione).
These are the other ingredients in each capsule: Soybean Oil, Lecithin, Beeswax (yellow), Silica.
Prosvent states that you take 2 soft gel capsules per day. Each bottle of Prosvent contains 60 soft gel capsules.
Obviously this product must contain some Beta-sitosterol from the Saw Palmetto fruit extract, Pumpkin (seed) Oil and the Stinging Nettle (Root) Extract. How much is the question? There is no actual way to discern the quantity of actual Beta-sitosterol in Prosvent, which is the ingredient that has been well studied and published in double-blind placebo controlled clinical studies.
The manufacturer of Prosvent makes the claim that you can try Prosvent risk free for 30 days. You call them and provide a credit card number. If you do not cancel by calling them within the 30 day period your credit card will be charged $79.90 for the 2 bottles of Prosvent that you received. This is in addition to the $9.95 that your credit card was charged the day you called to receive your “risk free” trial of Prosvent. In addition, if you have not called within the initial 30 day period to cancel you will be placed on an auto ship program to receive 2 bottles of Prosvent every 60 days and your credit card will be automatically billed $89.85 every 60 days unless you cancel. If you call Prosvent at 800-778-4584 and do not place an order at the time you call them they will call you back and offer to give you a 25% discount for placing an order over the phone. All orders placed by phone or Internet are subject to the auto ship and automatic billing program.
For those of you who have not tried Best Prostate we do NOT subject our customers to either auto shipping product or recurring charges to your credit card. To try Best Prostate the cost for one bottle is $24.95 plus actual shipping costs with no additional handling charges. If you decide that Best Prostate does not work for you simply return it and we refund the $24.95. We do not refund the postage fees. What we do offer our customers is quantity pricing. This means that you can purchase 6 bottles of Best Prostate for $89.70 plus actual shipping costs. This breaks down to a cost of $14.95 for each 30-day supply of Best Prostate.
Best Prostate provides the 310 mg of actual Beta-sitosterol per serving for the best price.
You simply do not pay for all those unknowns or extras prevalent in other prostate formulas.
If you do not mind not knowing the amount of Beta-sitosterol you are purchasing or if price is no object then call Prosvent at 800-778-4584. If you want to try Best Prostate visit http://www.bestprostate.com/ or call 888-768-3836.
Beta-Prostall or Pros-TEROL
We have received numerous requests for information regarding the above product as compared to Best Prostate. First Beta-Prostall was re-named Pros-TEROL. The serving size of this product is 3 caplets. Best Prostate is 2 capsules. 1 caplet of Pros-TEROL contains 200 mg of Beta-sitosterol. 1 capsule of Best Prostate contains 310 mg of Beta-sitosterol. Pros-TEROL contains 16 additional vitamins that have not shown statistical significant benefit in multiple clinical studies that establish a benefit with respect to the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. This product appears to be more of a multi-vitamin so if you are one of 53 million Americans who take a multi-vitamin it would be wise to make sure that you are not ingesting supra physiologic levels that may or may not lead to other undesirable situations. Cost of Pros-TEROL is $29.99 each when you order 6 bottles – there phone number is 800-462-9654. Cost of Best Prostate is $14.95 each when you order 6 bottles. Best Prostate can be reached at 888-768-3836 or www.bestprostate.com.
Unfortunately the manufacturer does not publish a Supplements Facts table online. Here is a listing of the ingredients:
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Zinc (Zinc Arginate), Copper (Cupric Oxide), Beta-Sitosterol (Campesterol, Stignmasterol, Brassicasterol), Glycine, L-Alanine, L-Glutamic Acid Hydrochloride, Soy Isoflavones, Quercetin, Lycopene, Pumpkin Seed Extract, Stinging Nettle Root Extract 10:1, Ginger Root Extract 4:1, Licorice Root Extract 4:1, Black Pepper Extract
UltraProstatePlus- Compare Prostate Formulas
RE: UlraProstatePlus – James Adison “How I Naturally Cured My Prostate Disease”
James – 1 tablet of UltraProstate has 157mg of Beta-sitosterol – 1 vegetable capsule of Best Prostate contains 310 mg of Beta-sitosterol. All these extra ingredients in UltraProstate have not shown published benefit in the literature to improve prostate function. Honestly 4 pills of UltraProstatePlus compared to 2 or 3 capsules of Best Prostate is simply not even comparable.
UltraProstatePlus wants to charge $59.oo a month and make you sign up for a recurrent billing account. Best Prostate does not offer recurrent billing nor do they store your credit information which creates both safety and customer satisfaction. A month’s supply of Best Prostate can be purchased for as low as $14.95 plus shipping. The company does not charge handling.
It amazes me that companies say “try our product for free” which means we take your credit card information and set up an account with recurrent billing (month to month) and autoshipments. One trip to the Better Business Bureau and you can find countless complaints against businesses that partake in this business practice of autoship and autobilling.
You can order one bottle of Best Prostate for $24.95 plus shipping $4.95 (priority mail anywhere in the continental US). If the product does not work for you simply call them and return the used open bottle and any additional open bottles and you will be issued a refund for $24.95. Use all sixty pills – honestly – the policy of Best Prostate is that “no man will continue to take something if it does not provide a benefit” I originally tried to post to the blog of James Addison however it appears the blog does not encourage a post from objective third parties.
According to purchase records at Best Prostate – they do not have a record of you ever purchasing Best Prostate. Please tell us how you made up your comparison?
No red face here – we encourage any comparative questions regarding prostate formulas.
