Meet Our Founder


Our founder, Ben Ong, is a leading authority on prostate and metabolic health. Upon being diagnosed with BPH, Ben shunned away from recommendations of medication, prostate biopsies, and surgeries. Instead, he set out on a mission to discover a natural, effective and side-effect-free solution for BPH. On unveiling the integral role of diet, lifestyle, and natural supplements, he decided to publish his bestselling book, ‘All About The Prostate,’ so that men worldwide could benefit from the wealth of research and scientific studies he uncovered.
