Dietary Supplements and Men’s Health
Dietary supplements are essential to overall health. In a perfect world, we would all be able to get the nutrition, vitamins and minerals we need from the food we eat. In a realistic world, however, we don’t always reach for the salad instead of that burger and fries, nor do we always eat our 5-13 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Busy lifestyles, poor food choices, food availability, genetics, natural aging and more make it increasingly harder to achieve dietary goals. And while everyone has unique nutritional needs, this distinction is especially true across genders. Men require more of some nutrients and less of others when compared to women. Here are a few of our favorite dietary supplements for adult males of all ages to consider incorporating into their health regimens. We’re sorry to say they won’t reverse that cheat meal, but they’re a healthy way to add additional nutrients to the diet.*
DrVita Six Daily
Though this powerful multivitamin is formulated for both men and women, DrVita Six Daily contains over 90 powerful vitamins and minerals. Some of these nutrients are especially important to men’s health, including Vitamin A (immune and vision support), Vitamin C (immune system support), Vitamin D (bone health), B12 (energy support), magnesium, boron, folate and more. DrVita Six Daily Advanced Multivitamin is a comprehensive daily multivitamin featuring effective levels and forms of these potent, high quality ingredients and more in easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsules. We suggest taking two capsules in the morning, two in the afternoon, and two in the evening, totaling six per day.
