What is the best prostate formula for your Prostate Health?
One of the most important thing a man can do is choose an enlarged prostate formula that works. There are so many products to choose from it's confusing. It is unfortunate that celebrities are employed by manufacturers of prostate formulas and paid to endorse one specific brand over another and make it appear like an undercover news story. Even a "shocking headline title" is used to capture the readers attention.
Natural Enlarged Prostate Symptom Options
Saw palmetto extract is made from the fruit of the saw palmetto (see image). It is marketed as helpful for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate. It is ranked as the third most used dietary supplement in the United States. However the FDA has not approved this supplement for any medical use. If you are going to purchase saw palmetto make sure that you buy one that is standardized and contains 85 to 95% fatty acids and sterols (this would include beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol, cycloartenol, lupeol, lupenone, and methylcycloartenol). These are considered the active ingredients.
Unfortunately the amount of plant sterols in saw palmetto is low. In clinical studies saw palmetto is unable to show any evidence that it actually works. Notable studies include one study where 396 men with enlarged prostate were followed for 18 months. Men were given either saw palmetto extract or a placebo (aka sugar pill). The results were disappointing and showed no difference in BPH symptom improvement between the men taking a placebo and those taking even high levels of the extract. Multiple studies, that were similar, have reached the same conclusion. The icing on the cake was an independent and thorough review by the Cochrane Database where studies with a total of 5,666 men reported the same lack of effectiveness. Based on these facts it is not a good option for an enlarged prostate formula.
Beta-sitosterol is phytosterol or plant-based sterol which is an organic molecule that occurs naturally in plants. For many decades it has been the choice of physcians in Europe for patients with BPH or enlarged prostate symptoms. They have used this natural ingredient due to the fact that the general population does not have expensive insurance plans willing to pay for expensive prescription medications. This is confirmed by reports from the Pharmaceutical Manufacturering Association which reports 68 percent of pharmaceutical profits come from the United States and Canada. Unlike saw palmetto the FDA has published and approved Health Care Claims for the ingredient Beta-sitosterol. You will note that the image for beta-sitosterol shows pine (left) and soybeans (right). When it comes to enlarged prostate formulas with beta-sitosterol 95 percent use soy as the source for beta-sitosterol.
The importance of beta-sitosterol source is easily understood by the image showing how 94 percent of all soy is farmed in North America. It is important to know that 94 percent of all soy planted is the brand "RoundUp Ready Soybeans." The first image is the brand image for GMO soybean seeds. The second image is the glyphosate herbicide brand that the GMO seed (gentically modified soy) is treated with. The third image is soy being farmed in North America. Note soybeans are high in levels of the female hormone estrogen.
The other source of beta-sitosterol is from pine. Pine is non-GMO and free of estrogen. This is good for men because it is important to maintain a healthy testosterone level. Testosterone helps with muscle mass, strength, and a man's libido or sex drive. Beta-sitosterol from pine has the benefits without the obvious negatives of soy.
BPH / Enlarged Prostate
The symptoms of an enlarged prostate or BPH drastically affect daily living.
These symptoms can include:
• hesitant, interrupted or reduced urinary stream
• feel the urgent need to urinate but can't
• feel that you never completely empty your bladder
• feel the need to urinate less than 2 hours after you finished urinating

• have the urge to awaken and urinate multiple times at night
• experience decreased desire and/or sexual dysfunction
Fortunately tens of thousands of men have discovered that the natural ingredient beta-sitosterol can actually address these symptoms without the side effects of prescription medications.

Best Prostate ® provides 620 mgs of (non-GMO) Beta-Sitosterol (source Pine trees) in a daily dosage regimen (2 capsules).
There is a lot of controversy regarding the consumption of soy by men. Rather than debate the benefits or lack of benefits, we use beta-sitosterol that is derived from pine. Due to the fact that most soy products in the US and Canada are GMO (93% per USDA). In addition, most soy products consumed in the US and Canada under go industrial processing which does not first, ferment the soy bean. This type of soy (non-fermented) has been shown to interfere with the absorption of zinc in addition to other minerals such as iron and calcium. The length of fermentation depends on the phytate content. In the case of soy, it takes about 6 months due to its high phytic acid content. Asians have traditionally consumed soy in these fermented forms such as soy sauce, miso and tempeh.
Best Prostate ® does not contain excessive amounts of Selenium and takes into account other daily dietary sources of Selenium. Vegetables are the major dietary sources of selenium in most countries throughout the world. Selenium can also be found in meats, fish, and seafood. Animals that eat grains or plants that were grown in selenium-rich soil have higher levels of selenium in their muscle. In the U.S., meats and bread are common sources of dietary selenium. Some nuts are also sources of selenium.
"Oct. 28, 2008 -- The National Cancer Institute has halted its $114 million study of whether vitamin E and selenium can prevent prostate cancer. They can't -- at least not in the formulations and dosages used in the study, called SELECT (SELenium and vitamin ECancer prevention Trial). The safety panel for the 35,000-man study called for a halt when an early look at the data showed no benefit for the treatment. The men received either vitamin E (400 milligrams) and selenium (200 micrograms), vitamin E and placebo, selenium and placebo, or placebos alone." News release, National Cancer Institute.
