Uh oh: Omega-3 Fatty Acids Tied to Aggressive Prostate Ca...

The linked article is a tad ambiguous in my opinion. After all how much exactly is “high levels of omega-3 fatty acids”? Also, there is mention of nutritional supplements being detrimental to health, I don’t get that bit either, are the researchers saying that if I eat a whole bunch of omega-3 rich salmon I’d be alright but if I had a few health supplements that are high on omega 3 fats my prostate would suddenly develop degenerative diseases? I know medical professionals don’t seem to like supplements as a rule, but I disagree with this stance. For example, my uncle had, ironically, an aging prostate issue, and he read up some Super Beta Prostate reviews, liked what he saw, and decided to try it, and guess what? It worked! So I don’t know what the researchers are trying to prove and there are gaping holes in the paper, or at least in how it was presented within the article. http://superbetapr ostatesupplements. /06/13/super-beta- prostate-review-by -joe-theismann/  (Jul 18, 2013 | post #2)

Omega 3 Fatty Acids Boost Prostate Cancer Risk

As bigpharmaplant alluded to, there’s something fishy (excuse the pun) about this study. I would relish an opportunity to study it in detail before taking their hypotheses on as absolute fact. After all, the anti-inflammatory benefits of omega-3 fats have been established through numerous studies as well, and it’s actually recommended for people with weak prostates, would be comedy of errors if omega-3 actually turned out to have such a negative impact on the prostate gland instead, and I for one don’t buy it. Also, from another article I read that actually interviewed one of the researchers, there was mention that this study proves nutritional supplements are not good for you, whereas from the conclusions of the study it appears that oily fish are not good for your prostate. Feels like there’s an anti-supplement agenda here, which is far-fetched but keeping the factors mentioned in mind, it’s the only one that makes sense. In fact, while researching prostate supplements after reading about this study to see how many contained omega-3 fats, I came across a Super Beta Prostate review, where the user of this supplement was gushing about its usefulness, but also mentioned in passing that she started eating mackerel and salmon on a regular basis as she had heard it helps improve prostate health and her prostate health did actually improve, which makes sense because a whole bunch of studies have proven this over a period of time, so I don’t know what these researchers are on about, but I would advise anyone to take what they’re saying with a pinch of salt until more details of this study emerge, and it’s peer-reviewed to a sufficient degree. http://www.dailymo fyr_super-beta-pro state-supplement-r eview_lifestyle  (Jul 18, 2013 | post #4)


Does Saw Palmetto Treat Enlarged Prostate?

Well Saw Palmetto is sometimes considered a scam but Super Beta Prostate is not. They contain similar ingredients but the difference is that Super Beta Prostate contains a lot more plant sterols than Saw Palmetto and is therefore more effective. http://www.transsm 012/12/21/super-be ta-prostate-helpin g-men-fight-prosta te-problems-natura lly/  (Jan 30, 2013 | post #35)

Enlarged Prostate prevention technique?

Since you know how uncomfortable this condition can be, one way to support a healthy prostate for longer is through supplements like Super Beta Prostate. The beta-sitosterol and other trace minerals it contains are necessary for optimal prostate functioning.  (Jan 29, 2013 | post #3)
