We are aware that some companies find it necessary to market their prostate supplement by confusing the consumer with false claims of fraud and scam alerts. Not very professional nor ethical. This addresses the labelling of our product Best Prostate and the rational of why the label was changed.
You may notice that along time ago we changed our % daily value of Selenium from DRI (Dietary Reference Intakes), established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine, 1997-2001, which replace previous RDAs, to RDI (Reference Daily Intake), which is the value established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The RDI was based initially on the highest 1968 Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for each nutrient, to assure that needs were met for all age groups. The % daily value was changed from 50% to 21.4% The 15 mcg Selenium content in Best Prostate has not changed in any way.
Initially we produced Best Prostate™ with the soybean based Vegapure®. When we discovered that US-sourced beta-sitosterol was pre-dominantly genetically modified (GMO) we ceased production and transitioned to Vegapure® FTE (non-GMO) however still soybean based. Our competitors claim that we have never procured or used the Vegapure® FTE product line from Cognis. This allegation is a lie and untrue. Cognis actually contacted our competitor with a Cease and Desist letter dated November 5, 2009 due to flagrant violation of their trademark(s) and claims. We learned that the Vegapure® FTE had to be imported from Germany due to the fact that most soybean products produced in the US were genetically modified. Despite this fact we felt that the benefit of a non-GMO product was in our customers best interest and we imported this product. Recognizing that men preferred a non-soy based product we again improved Best Prostate™ by transitioning to Vegapure® 867 G (non-GMO) derived from Pine trees. Despite increased raw material and production costs with each transition we have not passed these costs onto our customers. The decision rests with you the consumer a soy-based beta-sitosterol that is genetically modified or Best Prostate™.
