The ads read “natural vitamin supplements that will make a difference”, “shrink prostate fast”, “delivers quick and long-lasting relief.” As consumers, we are inundated with gimmicks and get rich quick ads and vitamins and minerals that are guaranteed to shrink your waist, enhance your sexual organs, make you read faster, retain more, buy property with no money down, and the list goes on and on. We sit before our televisions and watch blurry eyed while they advertisers come into our homes and offer us neatly packaged bill of goods. Now on the market, you will find natural supplements that are “100% guaranteed to shrink your enlarged prostate.” Is that even possible?
While researching the Internet for this article, what I found most incredulous and somewhat disturbing was where the “valid research” originated from and that none of these products have been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. For example, Get Well Natural LLC’s Healthy Prostate & Ovary’s research is documented in Vietnam. Yet these supplements (for lack of a better word) are being touted as offering “guaranteed results”.
Some of the products on the market will be discussed below
Get Well Natural LLC’s Healthy Prostate & Ovary claims to be formulated to promote healthy prostate, ovarian and immune function and that this herbal combination has been featured in Second Opinion by Dr. Robert Rowen MD. Second Opinion is a Health Sciences Institute periodic publication. The advertisement goes on to claim that
“Many doctors and individuals highly endorse the product based on their experiences of its health supporting benefits. It is stated that the main ingredient, Crinum Latifolium, has been “researched and documented in Vietnam to be an excellent and effective supportive ingredient to promote the health of the ovary and prostate.” Crinum Latifolium is described as a leafy traditional Vietnamese herb used in ancient times by royalty to enhance longevity and the immune system. Apparently, it is currently being used in Vietnam for a wide variety to health supporting benefits for the body for those with conditions including prostate and ovarian disorders such as prostatitis, adenoma, benign prostate enlargement (BPH), uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts.
Prostate Health Essentials is a combination of over 30 of the “top natural ingredients” designed to solve enlarged prostate, prostate infection and lower the high prostate scores while at the same time building a healthy prostate. It claims to be a powerful formula of natural ingredients “that deliver(s) quick and long lasting relief from the symptoms of an enlarged prostate.”
Emotional issues such as stress, worry, depression, guilt and anxiety can lead to the loss of a man’s libido and ED. It becomes an endless cycle because if a man experiences the loss of an erection, he may fear that it will happen again at which point his performance may be affected and could lead to impotence. There are many sources of so-called “cure-alls” but with all non-regulated medications that are on the internet, the best protection is to be well-informed purchaser.
