Men’s Health

Men’s health supplements can often run the gamut, but typically they fall into 6 areas — gaining muscle, improving strength, losing weight, sexual function, overall health and wellness and combating disease. Often men’s health supplements focus on sexual health and libido, exercise and joint support, heart and brain health, prostate and urinary health

In general, men should take supplements for their overall health and wellness such as vitamin D, magnesium, some form of probiotics (can be taken through food as well) and any supplements an individual requires for his specific health. Vitamin D is important as this essential vitamin aids your body in absorbing calcium helps reduce inflammation, improve mood, and boost immune function. It also cannot easily be consumed in food and hence taking a supplement is advisable.

Other nutrients to consider in men’s health supplements include magnesium, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, zinc. Zinc also enables the male body to produce testosterone. Because of this, your levels of zinc may affect erectile dysfunction. Additional ingredients include maca, ashwagandha, Yohimbe, fenugreek, boron, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), glucosamine sulfate, creatine, L-carnitine, protein, fish oil, CoQ10, turmeric or curcumin, pumpkin seed oil, folic acid, selenium, saw palmetto, lycopene, flower pollen extract and pygeum. Consult with your healthcare practitioner for the right supplements for you.
