How To Choose A Prostate Supplement

how-to-choose-a-prostate-supplement_300With so many choices, you have many things to consider when choosing a prostate supplement for yourself or for your partner. First of all, you want natural ingredients for prostate health formulas that have research behind them. You want formulations that support total prostate health and may help encourage health in your areas of concern such as urinary symptoms and other health concerns, which often accompany an aging prostate. You also want to find out how and where the product is made and if the product is guaranteed.

Ask yourself the following questions when shopping for the best prostate supplement:

  • Who developed the product?
  • Is the developer a doctor, and does he have training in naturopathic urology?
  • Does that person have experience with men’s prostate needs?
  • Is the product made in the United States and is it Food and Drug Administration compliant?
  • Does the product use testimonials of real people or models?
  • Does it contain clinical strength ingredients?
  • Does the product’s website include studies?
  • Are all of the ingredients listed on the label, including non-active ingredients?
  • Does the company offer fast customer service and a money-back guarantee?

You want a prostate supplement formulated by a doctor, specifically a product developed by a naturopathic doctor who specializes in prostate health. A formulation that comes from a naturopathic urologist who understands a man’s prostate and urinary health needs is going to be much more complete than a product marketed by an actor or someone who is not a doctor but merely “plays one on TV.” Avoid products sold by actors and celebrities.

For example, in developing the product Prost-P10x, I have used my knowledge acquired as head of the Integrative Urology Center and the No. 1 naturopathic urologist at Langone Medical Center. Before running the Integrative Urology Center, I was the Director of Clinical Trials for Holistic Urology at Columbia University. I manage the health of men with prostate disorders all day as a naturopathic urologist. If you cannot find out this kind of information about the practitioner who has developed a supplement you are considering, you should keep looking.

When shopping for prostate supplements, it is a good idea to compare products through prostate supplement reviews. This gives you an easy way to see how different products measure up in terms of ingredients, strength and who developed them. You can also find out if there is a guarantee, whether they offer free shipping and how the product is manufactured. Consulting these reviews will save you time and money and help you find the best product for your prostate needs.

Aside from product comparisons, you also want to read reviews and testimonials from real men who have used the product. Prost-P10x is one supplement that uses actual testimonials from real men who use the product. The website provides reviews and success stories from customers.  Finding a prostate supplement that works can be difficult, and customer reviews can give you an honest assessment of the product and how it compares with other prostate supplements.

The FDA has different regulations for supplements than it does for food and medications. Labels for supplements cannot make claims to prevent, treat or cure a specific condition. That is why the best prostate supplement lists its ingredients on its website and provides studies on the different ingredients. You can read about clinical trials and other research involving ingredients for prostate health formulas, allowing you to make your own decisions on what ingredients are important to you.

If you cannot find out where a prostate supplement is made, don’t use it. You want to buy product that is manufactured in the United States and is compliant with the FDA. It is important to be a good consumer and find out how the supplement is manufactured, tested and quality-controlled. That way you know that your supplement has the exact strength, quality, purity and identity that the label says it has.

It may seem overwhelming to choose the right prostate supplement formulation, but by using the right tools, such as the prostate supplement reviews, and following these guidelines can save you a lot of time and effort. Ultimately, you want a quality product with well-researched ingredients that are of therapeutic strength and made in a quality facility. If the manufacturer offers customer service and a money-back guarantee, you know that the company stands behind its product.
