“Today more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies, and lack of physical exercise”- Mike Adams. Multivitamin is essential throughout our lives. Carbohydrates, proteins, essential amino acids supplementation supports survival and maintains health. The multivitamin requirements vary at each age starting from infancy to adulthood. Eating right at each phase of life gives the required strength and energy for maintaining a healthy status. To meet our body’s nutritional (multivitamin) requirements we have to eat a variety of nutritious food. Younger men in the age bracket of 19 to 50 years of age need more energy as compared to older men, by the age of 50 the nutritional and multivitamin needs of the body have changed than when you are younger.
A multivitamin tablet gives you both vitamins and minerals for good health. In today’s fast-paced life it is difficult for most men to pay attention to a well-balanced diet, hence the diet lacks the essential elements such as multivitamins. For example, vitamin D referred to as calciferol is needed in all ages for normal growth and development, to boost immunity. Multivitamins and minerals help to maintain a healthy immune system, vitamins C and E help protect against free radicals. Calcium is required for healthy bones. Amino acids reduce oxidative stress. Men above the age of 50 plus need to pay more attention to their health as with aging men face many health-related issues such as vision impairment, heart-related issues, and cognitive degradation. For instance, Ginseng helps to improve mental health. L-carnitine improves cognitive status and physical functions in the elderly. Multivitamins and minerals are helpful to maintain day-to-day well-being. By the age of 70 plus, men face many other health challenges such as the overactive bladder. Pumpkin seed extract lowers urinary dysfunction and improves the overactive bladder. Vitamin B1, B2, vitamin C contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system. Vitamin B6 improves gastrointestinal disorders. Lipoic acid restores impairment of brain energy metabolism due to age. Multivitamin is thus very essential in all age groups.
Eating the right diet and additional multivitamin supplementation can help to maintain a healthy status. Aging carries a lot of financial burden for the elderly as they face financial instability with age and healthcare is expensive as we age. Aging can be better managed if planned for scheduled screenings/monitoring, eating a well-balanced diet, exercising, socializing talking to the physician or any specialist as per the needs promptly. Being aware and educated, of the nutrition and multivitamin needed and then taking as per the requirements will help men to control a lot of things and maintain a healthy status. Giving up habits such as consumption of tobacco, alcohol, junk food and at the same time paying attention to the body’s needs like early detection prevents hospitalization and the future financial cost. Thus having the required amounts of antioxidants, micronutrients, amino acids, and other beneficial ingredients will help men to be in good health.
