Today's man is faced with more mental and
physical demands than ever before, and for this
reason, our well-being is in serious jeopardy.
Because taste is typically more important
than nutrition, over 90 percent of men's diets
lack key nutrients that are essential for optimum
health. Supplementing the diet with daily
multi-vitamins rich in antioxidants, calcium,
vitamin E and vitamin B can help balance our diets.
Proper diet, regular exercise and a good nights
rest are critical. Men who are always on the go
and don't have enough time eat right, exercise
and sleep may benefit from taking a daily
multi-vitamin and mineral supplement.
Besides the obvious importance of vitamins
and minerals, botanicals are also beneficial
for supporting many male bodily functions. For
example, saw palmetto supports the glands and
prostate health; damiana balances male hormones
supporting the reproductive system; oat straw,
a rich source of calcium and silicon, supports
the nervous system; and the amino acid, arginine,
helps increase male energy levels.
As we get older we are more susceptible
to a variety of health issues, including
prostate problems, colon disorders and urinary
dysfunctions. Focusing on our bodies now, instead
of as an after thought, can prevent health
problems from getting out of control. Taking
care of our bodies should be the first task on
our daily agendas!
