Get the truth about super prostate supplements. How popular are they? How to recognize illegal treatment claims. What are the important ingredients in a prostate supplement? False pill reports and prostate pill reviews. How to protect yourself from false claims and miss-information.
Wow, an internet search today is truly confusing when it comes to prostate supplements or formulas. One is the super beta prostate formula and another is a super prostate product yet others claim to be a miracle prostate formula.
Many of these products make actual claims of efficacy for their respective product when in fact the claim is really in reference to a particular ingredient that has demonstrated the respected efficacy. Other products boldly state that their product will shrink your prostate which is actually an illegal statement and is truly false advertising. Legally only a product that has been through clinical studies and that has been submitted to the FDA and received an approval can make such a treatment claim. Beware all these false and unproven “treatment” claims. If the word treatment is used this should be a clue that the site is making a false claims.
Well then do these natural products help your prostate? The answer is “yes” some do but it truly depends on the ingredients. One of the most studied ingredients is beta-sitosterol which would be inclusive of saw palmetto. The key to remember is that beta-sitosterol is the key ingredient found in saw palmetto. Saw palmetto itself contains the phytosterol beta-sitosterol however the amount of saw palmetto that you would have to ingest or take to get the benefits of beta-sitosterol might actually make you sick. It is projected that it takes 100 capsules of saw palmetto to achieve the amount of beta-sitosterol that you could find in one 300 mg capsule of beta-sitosterol. Other ingredients that have substantial clinical data with respect to prostate health would include both zinc and selenium. Outside of these key ingredients is a host of additional ingredients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Green Tea Extract, Cranberry Extract, Lycopene, Calcium Carbonate, Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate (lubricant), calcium silicate, croscarmellose sodium, silicon dioxide, Di-Calcium Phosphate, Cellulose,Stearic Acid, Silica, etc., etc., etc. that have little if any clinical data that has been published in a reputable medical journal that benefits your prostate in a statistical significant way. Many of these extras are nothing more than a way to make a product cheaper to manufacture and increase the profit margin for the respective maker. If you want a multi-vitamin, then buy a good one, you surely should not be relying on a prostate supplement as a multi-vitamin. Supplements with a laundry list of ingredients do not work better. I guess manufacturers who include all of these ingredients think that this shotgun approach might lead to greater customer satisfaction in addition to the increased profit margin.
It is also amazing to see many prostate pill reviews, prostate pill reports, and comparisons by respective manufacturers that lend themselves to miss-informing the public and presenting themselves as experts or even institutes that do not exist. Another venue is a manufacturer that outright attacks other manufacturers with libelous and defamatory statements. The best advice when it comes to choosing the best prostate supplement is to look for a product that contains the important key ingredients. Choose a manufacturer that has integrity that doesn’t need to use libelous and defamatory statements to sell their product in desperation. Avoid the obvious pill reviews and reports that obviously direct you to buy an expensive product that benefits the profit margin of the company behind the comparison website. A comparison website should not be selling or for that matter require the necessity of a disclosure statement that states it is sponsored by or receives compensation for products reviewed on the site.
Common sense and logic is your best defense when looking for the best prostate supplement. If a site claims to be an expert then look for the substantiating credentials – many websites provide none. Another unique internet tool can be used to discern how popular a website is on the internet. This strips away all the false claims about this or that product being rated as number 1. What is this tool? It is called Alexa. Out of the hundreds of millions of websites on the internet this company is a website information company that actually ranks websites globally and then if the site is very popular by Country. Alexa offers a toolbar that actually shows the ranking of the website that you are presently visiting. By clicking on the ranking number in the toolbar you are provided with additional statistics such as popularity within a specific Country or even local geography. I have found that this is one toolbar that I cannot live without as it truly tells the story about the actual popularity of a product website without the hype. This Alexa toolbar can be found by doing a search for the Alexa toolbar.
