It wouldn't be right to write an April - June newsletter and only cover women (Mother's Day) and leave out something for the male readers (Father's Day). Years ago, the majority of attendees of my seminars were women. They seemed to be the only ones interested in preventative health. But now, the number of men seems to be equal, and I think it is because we are sick and tired of being sick and tired. The following will give you an idea of how I (44 year old male) would build my supplement program. You can adjust this based on your age and needs.

SPECIAL NEEDS -We all have something we are either trying to "treat" or "prevent" (cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, etc.), so start there first. For starters, I think that all men over the age of 35 should consider using a prostate health supplement. Here is what you should look for:

  • Prostate 5LX (New Chapter)
  • Ultra Natural Prostate Formulation (Life Extension)
  • Prostate Advantage (Enzymatic Therapy)
  • Prostate Health Formula (Natural Factors)
  • ANTIOXIDANT -The selection of your antioxidant may vary depending on any other special need(s) you may have. For now, I am assuming that you have no other needs except for general health and wellness. Product Choices:

  • Super Critical Antioxidant (New Chapter)
  • Antioxidant Cocktail II (Vitamin Shoppe)
  • Daily Antioxidant (Weil Nutritional Supplements)
  • Antioxidant Complex (Vitamin Shoppe)
  • Antioxidant Super Food (Futurebiotics) (Yes, these are the same examples used in the Women's article. These are based on health, not gender.)
  • OMEGA-3 (FISH OIL BLEND) -What you choose here is mostly up to you and your needs. Omega-3s from fish are high in both EPA and DHA and will help in every area of your health. This is a critical nutrient that can't be overlooked when creating your supplement regimen. I personally use Coromega, but find that Nordic Naturals and Carlson Laboratories are excellent choices too.

    PROBIOTIC -Probiotics are part of my everyday program regardless of age or gender. They support two functions in the body - digestion and immunity. Without replenishing these friendly bacteria on a regular basis, I believe you will open yourself up to other health challenges from either prolonged nutrient depletion or by a weakened immune and/or digestive system. I would love for all of us to use a blend of bacteria - not just one specific strain. Consider using any one of the following:

  • Advanced Probiotic 30 Billion
  • Reuteri Pearls
  • Dr. Ohhira's Probiotc 12
  • Flora Smart
  • MULTIVITAMIN -Don't think that one size fits all. We have specific nutritional needs just like women do. You need to seek out a multivitamin designed for who you are: male and what age. I prefer to use whole food vitamins. If not, pick a natural vitamin (second best alternative). Here are some great selections:

  • Every Man or Every Man II (New Chapter)
  • Doctors Choice Male Teen, Men and 50+ Men
  • Vitamin Shoppe Whole Food for Men
  • Vitamin Code Men's
  • Don't sell yourself short. To truly be a healthy individual with incredible strength and vitality, you need to take a complete supplement program - not just a vitamin. Following the guidelines above will assure you that you have the supplemental part of your health covered.
