The FDA warning issued to doctors on Prostate Prescriptions in June 2011 prompted many men to look at natural prostate supplements. Most supplements use a SOY sourced beta-sitosterol. Unlike most, the Best Prostate Formula uses a non-GMO Non-SOY Beta-sitosterol to address Prostate Symptoms.
Today the prostate supplement market is constantly being targeted by false non-accredited Institutes “Fischer Urological Institute” and / or Pill reports brought to you by organizations like MDhealthreports.com that literally portray themselves as credible sources. The fact is that these organizations are not accredited and these so called pill reporting agencies are a fraud. Simple searches on the name of the organization at Better Business Bureau, and Dunn & Bradstreet websites clearly shows that these so called expert agencies are nothing more that a false front to get the consumer to purchased their alleged highly rated product. We encourage consumers to report these to the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, collects complaints about companies, business practices, and identity theft. Complaints can be filed at: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/
Most of us know that GMO (or “genetically modified organisms”) is the science that allows DNA from one species to be injected into another species in a laboratory, creating combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. In over 30 countries around the world there are restrictions and/or bans on the production of GMOs. These restrictions and/or bans exist because GMOs are not considered to be proven as safe. Some of the countries that have these restrictions include: Japan, Russia, Australia, and all of the countries in the European Union.
In 2008, a CBS News poll found that 87% of consumers wanted products containing GMOs labeled as such. A more recent poll by CBS/New York Times found that 53% of consumers would not buy food that was genetically modified.
Most beta-sitosterol found in prostate formulas is derived from soy. This is interesting in that it is well known that soy contains phyto-estrogens and consumption of soy has been shown to reduce testosterone levels. FYI, most soy consumed in Asian countries is fermented soy. Un-fermented soy was and is reserved for un-faithful husbands. Unlike Asian countries most soy consumed in the US is not fermented. Now back to soy and GMO. In 2009 the US Department of Agriculture reported that 93% of the soy grown in the United States was GMO. Unlike most prostate formulas, the beta-sitosterol in Best Prostate™ is non-GMO. In addition the beta-sitosterol in Best Prostate™ is derived from pine and not soy.
NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 12
NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 12 /PRNewswire/ — Searching the Internet can be very misleading. Today the dietary supplement market is crowded with prostate formulas. The consumer is confused with fraudulent prostate pill reports that try to compare prostate formula safety and efficacy based upon laboratory tests of ingredients and measurements that have nothing to do safety or whether the product will work.
Beware the prostate manufacturer that directly attacks other prostate manufacturers to sell their prostate formula. These practices are both unethical and a demonstration of desperation. Some alleged consumer guides are disguised to look like they are an authority on the subject when they are literally a subjective way to confuse the consumer into purchasing a more expensive product. The FDA published consumer guidelines for shopping for dietary supplements. These can be found at: http://www.fda.gov/Food/DietarySupplements/ConsumerInformation/ucm110567.htm
Look for a return policy or guarantee it should be obvious. Are you being signed up for a monthly, or bimonthly auto-shipment and billing program? Companies offering this will be storing your credit card information. The Better Business Bureau is loaded with complaints against companies that auto-ship and bill consumers for products.
Does the website where you are shopping actually provide references for the claims made? You should be able to find the study in the National Library of Medicine’s database of literature citations (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/). Has the referenced study been reviewed by recognized scientific experts and published in reputable peer-reviewed scientific journals, like the New England Journal of Medicine? If not then the FDA advises that you beware this manufacturer.
Many consumers do not realize that when they use a search engine that the top three categories are advertisements. These are listed as “sponsored links.” These are paid advertisements that are selling a specific product. What you read in this section is an advertisement and not the gospel. Search engine companies do not confirm the validity of an advertisement they make money when you click on the link. Some advertisers mislead consumers to believe that they are visiting an accredited institution that provides product ratings. Consumers need to verify that the reviewing organization is valid and accredited. If the link is a “sponsored link” it is no more than an advertisement. Factual product comparisons can be made from one label to the next. However efficacy and safety issues involve scientific study not a lab test. A lab report can only confirm the specific amount and presence of what is being measured.
Beware dietary supplement sites that use the word “treatment.” Unless a study using the dietary supplement or a pharmaceutical in a specific disease state has received an FDA indication then the term is used illegally.

The Offices of Best Prostate are in North Hollywood, CA. Personally the owners of Best Prostate did not see fit to spend resources on expensive offices in Beverly Hills, CA that would increase the price of our product for consumers.
The following photograph is from the facility in Torrance where Best Prostate is manufactured.

Be advised that the lab tests provided by MDHealthReports.com can not and do not infer either efficacy or safety. A laboratory measurement can only confirm the identity of a specific compound and the amount of it present in the sample being tested. MDHealthReports.com discusses the benefit of the mineral zinc but fails to discuss why zinc is in a supplement.
Best Prostate contains zinc due to the findings published by Leake A, et al. “The effect of zinc on the 5 alpha-reduction of testosterone by the hyperplastic human prostate gland.” J Steroid Biochem. Feb1984;2092:651-655.and Pavon Maganto E. “Zinc in prostatic physiopathology. I. Role of zinc in the physiology and biochemistry of the prostatic gland”. Arch Esp Urol. Mar1979;32(2):143-52. and the fact that scientists have known for decades that Zinc may play an important part in prostate health. Additional data on Zinc and Prostate Health has been completed by Irving Bush, M.D., senior consultant at the Center for Study of Genitourinary Diseases in West Dundee, Illinois, and former chairman of the Food and Drug Administration panels on gastroenterology, urology and dialysis. Dr. Irving Bush of the Chicago Medical School and researchers from Cook County Hospital studied over 5,000 patients and the effects of zinc on enlarged prostates. An additional study was conducted at the University of Edinburgh Medical School in Scotland where they discovered high doses of zinc inhibited the activity of the enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone in test tube prostate tissues.
