Make sure the prostate supplement you take passed our quality review and is right for you!
Isn't your health worth it?
Can supplements with saw palmetto improve symptoms of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia)? How about beta-sitosterol supplements? Can such "prostate supplements" help with prostate cancer? Many commercials and websites would like you to believe they can do all of these things.
As explained in this Product Review, certain ingredients may help in the treatment of BPH, but evidence suggests that some of the most popular approaches won't help. And none of these supplements seem to prevent prostate cancer.
What's more, our testing found supplements which don't contain all of the saw palmetto they claim, won't properly break apart to release ingredients, or make outrageous and untrue claims right on their labels.
Fortunately, our tests also identified products with ingredients that should help, are accurately labeled, break apart properly, and are free of heavy metal contamination.
In this comprehensive report about saw palmetto and beta-sitosterol supplements for prostate health, you'll get test results and quality ratings for 20 supplements (including 9 that passed our Voluntary Certification Program). You'll learn:
