Both men and women purchase prostate supplements. Rather than talk about this prostate product and that prostate product and create phony rankings or allege that one product is better than another the customer is given the tools on the right to actively compare and seek out the truth about a company or a product. These tools can be used for any supplement product you wish to know more about not just a prostate supplement. The site is owned and operated by the maker of Best Prostate® Formula (www.bestprostate.com). The tools provided are owned by the respective agencies (FDA, BBB, Consumer Complaints Board, Whois, Natural Products Foundation, FTC)
Since fraud and miss-leading the consumer seems rampant on the internet the maker of Best Prostate®, IMS Supplements, Inc. has joined the Natural Products Foundation™ in the goal of “Truth in Advertising”. Numerous companies have joined in this pledge to consumers.
Dietary Supplement Truth in Advertising Pledge
We pledge to ensure that consumers get accurate information about legally marketed dietary supplements so that they can make informed decisions in promoting and maintaining their health. In that regard we pledge that any advertisement or marketing materials that we create, publish, or otherwise provide or disseminate will, to the best of our knowledge, be truthful, not misleading and substantiated under the requirements of both the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) as amended by Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) and the Federal Trade Commission Act:
- Not making claims, either expressly or implied, that are not accurate and fail to adequately disclose qualifying information.
- Verifying that there is adequate substantiation for claims being made, including the level of support, type and quality of evidence presented, and relevance of the evidence to the claim.
- Not making claims through testimonials or expert endorsements that cannot be substantiated.
- Ensuring that claims based on traditional use have the appropriate substantiation or clearly communicate that the sole basis for the claim is its history of use for a particular purpose.
- Ensuring that claims are appropriate for dietary supplements and do not cause the product advertised to be a “drug” under the FDCA.
- Using the two-part disclaimer as stipulated by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994 when appropriate.
- Strictly adhering to the use of “third party literature” as defined by DSHEA.
