Soy in your Prostate Formula - Should you be concerned?

We often see soy in so many food products. Should we be concerned? Well if you consider that 94 percent of all soy grown in Canada and the United States is brand named "Round-Up Ready Soybeans" the answer would be yes. Many of us are familiar with Round-Up we have used it to kill weeds. "Round-Up Ready Soybeans" is a trademark owned by the Monsanto Corporation. These are soybeans that have bean genetically modified to allow applications of the herbicide Round-up to be applied while they are growing. "Round-Up" is also a trademark owned by the Monsanto Corporation. Here is a quick synopsis of Round-Up from the organization GMO Inside:

"Monsanto invented the herbicide glyphosate and brought it to market under the trade name Roundup in 1974, after DDT was banned. But it wasn’t until the late 1990s that the use of Roundup surged, thanks to Monsanto’s ingenious marketing strategy. The strategy? Genetically engineer seeds to grow food crops that could tolerate high doses of Roundup. With the introduction of these new GE seeds, farmers could now easily control weeds on their corn, soy, cotton, canola, sugar beets and alfalfa crops—crops that thrived while the weeds around them were wiped out by Roundup. #stopmonsanto #food #ag #GMOs"

The decision to consume soy rests with each of us as individuals.  Consider this image which was recently published.

What is the Best Prostate Supplement or Formula on the Internet?

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., May 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Don't be mislead by companies making false claims about a product. That free trial that is promised is not free and you will likely see your credit card billed monthly. Celebrities and sports figures are not the reason you should buy any health related product. What you read should make sense. If it doesn't, you should not be buying it.
Truthfully there is only one Best Prostate ® Formula on the internet. Best Prostate ®, IMS Supplements, Inc. recommends consumers take care in researching prostate supplement products online. Consumers,  who have searched the internet, find it confusing with alleged comparisons and about thirty or more prostate products to address the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. 
Don't be fooled by ratings and recommendations.  Almost every one of these websites falsely rates and recommends one product over another based upon third party compensation.  The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires these websites post a disclosure or disclaimer.  It is important to look at these statements as they inform consumers that these websites have not necessarily tried or tested any of the products listed. These websites and their owners actually benefit from the sale of certain products on the website.
Another problem is websites that state information provided is from a prestigious sounding research institute.  When in fact the, so called, institute doesn't exist.  A legitimate research institute would in fact be accredited and the consumer would be able to find that information by doing a search on the name of the research institute. 
The best way to protect your self is to shop on websites that make sense.  These websites provide open information so that consumers can make their own, educated and informed, choice about products that are vital to their health and wellness.  This article is provided by the makers of Best Prostate ®, IMS Supplements, Inc.. 
Consumers should look for a product that contains ingredients that have been shown in the clinical studies to work. These studies should be identified on the website.  Beware products that take the shotgun approach and contain a laundry list of ingredients.  This fact is true the ingredient beta-sitosterol, found in the Best Prostate ® Formula, has been used throughout the European Union for over 3 decades for the symptoms of an enlarged prostate.  The best prostate formula is and should be manufactured in the USA in an FDA audited, GMP certified manufacturing facility. 
Beware websites offering a free trial or "freebie" typically these manufacturers have hundreds of complaints filed against them with the Better Business Bureau.  Often what is thought to be free is a way to trap consumers into an automatic credit card billing and shipping scheme. 
Ultimately, we hope informed consumers will purchase Best Prostate® based on the research and fully disclosed facts about prostate health and prostate supplement ingredients.  Visit and use discount code PRESS2015 to save $5.00.

Let's Compare Prostate Formulas

It's so confusing so let's prioritize what is important.

1.  Saw Palmetto or Beta-sitosterol?
Answer:  Beta-sitosterol - Why?  Because beta-sitosterol has been studied in double-blind placebo controlled clinical studies in peer-reviewed medical publications like Lancet, British Journal of Urology, and the Cochrane Reviews Database.  Information regarding "Beta-sitosterol in BPH" can be found at the National Institutes of Heath website  In addition clinical data regarding Saw Palmetto has shown that it is no more effective than a placebo in the New England Journal of Medicine.

2.  Is beta-sitosterol all the same from one product to another?

Answer:  Not at all.  Most prostate formulas use a plant sterol mix and generally they label it as so. Other products use actual beta-sitosterol in a concentrated form that exceeds the 50-55% commonly found in a plant or phyto-sterol complex or mixture.

Most manufacturers use beta-sitosterol from soy as it is common and allows for a increased profit margin. Soy in North America is 93% Monsanto "Round-Up Ready Soybeans"  or genetically modified to allow for the spraying of the pesticide "Round-Up".  Round-Up® is familiar to most men as it is known as a common pesticide purchased at large chain home improvement stores or small independent hardware stores.

In addition soybeans are high in phyto-estrogen.  Estrogen is a female hormone and studies have shown that in the male body testosterone levels are reduced.  Which can lead to erectile dysfunction and a loss of sex drive.

A few manufacturers claim that they use sugar cane.  However no wholesale source of sugar cane derived beta-sitosterol is available that is sourced in the United States or Canada.  Sources are #1 Brazil, #2 India, #3 China.

Then there is non-GMO, non-Soy beta-sitosterol Best Prostate ® sourced from pine.

3. But many prostate formulas have so many other ingredients like: Stinging Nettles, Pumpkin Seed extract , and/or saw palmetto are these important?

Beta-sitosterol is the miraculous common denominator in all of these other ingredients.  If a more pure form of beta-sitosterol was used in manufacturing instead of a phytosterol complex these other ingredients would not be necessary that is why I refer to them as unproven fillers.  For literally 3 to 4 decades (30 to 40 years) it is beta-sitosterol that physicians in Europe have relied upon for the symptoms of an enlarged prostate and not the other ingredients.  The shotgun approach appears impressive but why not just rely on the ingredients that have been studied and published in multiple peer-reviewed medical journals.

Is lycopene important for my prostate?

The Mayo Clinic feels that at this point the data is not sufficient to make this claim.  See the link:  Mayo Clinic.

It is our intention to make this simple and understandable as it should be. Don't be misled by false claims and hype or a high price.
