While diet and exercise are incredibly important, there's no harm in upping the ante in the nutrition stakes where possible- particularly for men. Read on for our tips on how to master men's nutrition the natural way.
Why is fueling the body so important for men's health?
Men's and women's nutritional needs are different- nutrition isn't "one size fits all," so it's important to look at your own needs and listen to your body, then work from there to achieve optimum nutrition.
If men don't fuel their bodies and deliver it the right mix of vitamins and nutrients, they can increase their risk of chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression.1 Men's nutrition guides recommend limiting your intake of saturated fats and filling your day with fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, lean meats and sources of calcium is important, but there's no such thing as a "perfect" diet and we can't be expected to get it right every single day. This is where men's dietary supplements come in. A daily "inner health" routine can ensure you're getting the right amount of essential vitamins each day, working to boost your health and nutrition on top of your diet.
The best dietary supplements for men
A great multi-tasking multivitamin for men is the Herbs of Gold Men's Multi Plus. A bit of a supplement all-rounder, this vegan-friendly tablet contains 24 important vitamins and minerals, plus herbs, to support men's health, including folate and B12 for brain function, vitamins C & E, Zinc and Selenium for immunity and to reduce free radical damage, and vitamin D for bone strength.
For men who want to prevent physical signs of ageing like cell damage and inflammation and want to boost the body's antioxidant defences, natural antioxidant production processes and support digestive, lung and bronchial health, we recommend the SuperFeast Medicinal Mushrooms- Tremella.
The Tremella mushroom has been used for thousands of years by Oriental noble men and women as a tonic which they believed to preserve beauty and youth, and this supplement can be easily stirred into hot drinks, broths and even full meals. Men over 50 will benefit from the Whole Earth & Sea Men's 50+ Multivitamin, which contains vitamin and mineral complexes specifically selected for their importance in the health of men over 50. This multivitamin contains Calcium and Magnesium, vitamin D3 and K2, Folate, B vitamins, selenium, vitamin C, saw palmetto extract, enzymes and antioxidants for health, energy and vitality.
If you're a particularly active man (or are shopping for one), we recommend the Unichi Zinc Plus Oyster supplement. This supplementary sports food for men contains Zinc, Vitamin D3 and Pacific Oyster powder to help maintain healthy testosterone levels in men, healthy immune function and muscle growth and performance.
