When it comes to vitamins, men and women both have different needs. Men over 60, in particular, will require specific vitamins to help them stay fit and healthy and we're here to help!
Best Vitamins for Men Over 60
Of course, we suggest taking a look at your diet first before you consider delving deep into the supplement world. A healthy diet that includes a variety of foods - including healthy fats - can help the health and wellbeing of men over the age of 60. Therefore, it's important that you're consuming a healthy and balanced diet. Once your diet is in tip-top condition it's time to look at the best food supplements...
Multiman 60+ Multivitamin
To help support the overall wellbeing of men over the age of 60, we've created a Primal formula that consists of 27 vitamins, minerals and plant extracts.
Multiman 60+ differs slightly from Multiman 40+ in that we've added SIX times the European Union’s Nutritional Reference Value of Vitamin B12! Why? Because the absorption of Vitamin B12 is a highly complex process that often becomes less efficient with age, increasing the likelihood of Vitamin B12 deficiency.
Vitamin B12 is important for a functioning nervous system and also boosts the immune system. It also contributes to both normal psychological function and red blood cell formation... Plus - and it’s a big plus - it helps to the reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Finally, to help with the appearance of ageining skin - just as we have with women 60+ - we've included Biotin, Iodine, Niacin, Vitamins A & B2 to help maintain healthy looking skin.
Calcium is crucial when it comes to teeth, bone, nerve, muscular and cardiovascular health. Unfortunately, as we age, the calcium in your bones and other parts of your body decline - which makes you more prone to osteoporosis. Maintaining strong bones as you age may be a difficult task (because it requires a lot of energy to burn), however, making sure you're calcium levels are a healthy level is a good start.
One cup of dairy has roughly 300mg of calcium and it's recommended that we aim for 1,200mg daily. You'll also 15% of your NRV in our Multiman 60+ multivitamin.
One way to help boost your calcium levels can be to up your vitamin D intake. You see, vitamin D and calcium work cohesively to build strong bones and believe it or not, one is not beneficial without the other.
Vitamin D also has the following health benefits which again, are vital for men over 60:
- Contributes to normal blood calcium levels, and to the maintenance of normal bones, muscle function and normal teeth.
- Contributes to the normal function of the immune system and has a role in the process of cell division.
- Supports calcium absorption in our teeth and bones, preventing osteoporosis and reducing the risk of cancer.
- Many people experience a low mood during the winter months, because of a lack in sunlight. There are ongoing studies on the link between low Vitamin D3 levels and depression, with many taking Vitamin D3 to help to reduce feelings of depression and anxiety for a healthier, happier mind
- There are also ongoing studies on the relationship between an increased Vitamin D3 intake and a reduction in the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. Support your immune system Decreased risk of Type 2 Diabetes and other diseases by boosting your body's defence system for increased immunity.
- High strength tablets with 10 times the Nutritional Reference Value with 2000iu to support cell division and muscle maintenance.
Unlike many brands out there, our Vitamin D3 formula contains a whopping 2000iu which is 10 times the Nutritional Reference Value, meaning you’re getting 10 days worth of the sunshine vitamin in one powerful tablet.
Not a fan of swallowing tablets? No worries! Our Vitamin D spray is suitable for the entire family and just one spray provides 400iu, as well as tasting like orange too!
Magnesium is not only amazing for our muscles and muscle relaxation, but it's also essential for healthy bones, teeth and the nervous system.
Also, as we get older, our immune systems tend to slow down and as a result, you're more prone to feeling tired and fatigued. Fear not, however, as magnesium has the benefits of reducing tiredness and fatigue. If you're finding yourself feeling drowsy during the day then taking a magnesium supplement could help you get a better night's sleep.
Unlike many brands out there, our Magnesium supplement has been formulated from high potency Bisglycinate - Magnesium in its most highly bioavailable form to maximise absorption!
Unlike when it’s formulated from Oxide, our Bisglycinate formula impacts the body quickly and effectively.
The human gut contains trillions of live bacteria, viruses and fungi, hence its name the 'gut microbiome'. Among the trillions of bacteria, the gut microbiome also contains beneficial bacteria, otherwise known as 'probiotics'. These probiotics may help the body with important tasks such as digestion, nutrient absorption, immune function, mood and cognition.
Studies have shown that probiotics can be beneficial to ageing adults which includes more than just helping to keep bowels healthy and regular. As well as keeping the body regular, probiotics can help older adults maintain a healthy gut and strong immune system while fighting off harmful bacteria which are more common with age.
There are so many different types of probiotics out there, it can be hard to know what to go for – let alone stick to having them every day. That’s where our probiotic comes in, as our unique blend contains 12 heavily researched strands. Click here to find out more.
As you age, the risks of serious conditions can grow. The goods news is however, that omega 3 can be beneficial in decreasing these risks.
Omega 3 fish oil contains EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) which are both essential nutrients your body needs for so many different reasons.
DHA is particularly important to us as human beings, as this remarkable fatty acid is a primary structural component of the human brain, which yes, helps take care of our brain as we age.
Omega 3 also contributes to the normal function of the heart, with the NHS also seeing some evidence to support this: "New scientific research has found a previously unreported link between omega-3 and blood pressure. The research also found links between omega-3 and a variety of heart health benefits including, blood pressure, chronic heart disease, triglycerides, atherosclerosis and arrhythmias."
With our formula, you need only take ONE capsule per day, to get the same amount of EPA and DHA in other tablets.
We have also extracted ours from deep cold-water fish to avoid fish harmed by our polluted oceans. Click here to find out more.
