Dioscin

The info is a bit dense but yet another compound which appears to be active against prostate cancer.

Is the science coming? If I understood the papers I might know lol...

Thanks. Assuming one would find it beneficial, where can it be bought?

I see wild yam extract containing dioscin on IMAHERB.COM. I buy kg quantities of supplements and extracts from them

Hello TFBUNDY, IMAHERB is a Chinese company. My wife and I and many others have been steering away from foods produced in China. Regulations are too lax and enforcement nil. I would recommend testing the products for trace metals and pesticides before using. Cheers, Phil

Well Philip... I guess I am just not a paranoid type of guy. I think you will find that a lot of supplements in fancy packaging sold worldwide come from this source, or other similar Chinese operations. I have been to China. Do not underestimate their level of professionalism and competence in any technical area. If indeed you are correct and there is a bit of pesticide in there, the amount I ingest each day can best be described as bugger all and I have other things to worry about. You keep paying top price, and I will stick to my trusted very professional manufacturer/ supplier and pay bulk commodity price. For me it's a win.

They say "you have to eat a pound (peck if you're English)of dirt before you die"

Hi John. I am English and we stopped ordering our chocolate chip by the peck almost a century ago, and the pound, I'm delighted to say, almost disappeared about half a century ago. Out there in the big world lurk logical sensible units of measure applicable to all things. Now how many grams in a scoop?

Have a good day

I knew you were from across the pond from your prior posts (hence my reference to pecks).

I'll have to compute how many grams in a bushel and then convert that to grams... after I figure out the chicken and egg puzzle.....inch by inch... THUMBS UP!!!

Good Luck, Good Health and Good Humor.

It did for a while then I started thinking (dangerous for me) if Brexit takes effect on 01/31/2020 will they change driving from the left to the right side of the road?

We have always driven on the right side of the road. Try driving on the wrong side and see how long you last...

We have always driven on the right side of the road. Very funny.

Good points. I do not underestimate the technical capabilities of the Chinese. I have known Chinese scientists and read their published research all the time. Keep in mind that even Chinese in China are reticent in buying their own produce. I saw a documentary recently ("Rotten" on Netflix) about the up and coming wineries in China and the world class wines they are producing - to explain why local consumption is not as high as expected one of the subjects they interviewed said that the locals still prefer to buy foreign wine because they don't trust their own producers. There have been too many food related scandals in China, which makes me wary. On the other hand, I don't disagree with the fact that when you are dealing with the immediate and near term threats posed by metastatic prostate cancer, then pesticides and trace metals are probably the least of your worries. Cheers, Phil

Rumor has it that the first English words every newly immigrated Chinese chef learns is "Here kitty, kitty".....

Good Luck, Good Health and Good Humor.
