A dietary supplement counters deficiencies in the body and provides essential nutrients that may be missing in a daily diet. Let’s take a look at the best supplements for men’s health:
Boron: Research indicates that men with a high intake of this mineral, found in almonds and raisins, lessen their chance of developing prostate cancer. Three milligrams is sufficient per day.
Calcium: To get strong bones and to combat weight loss, take calcium. The daily allowance is 1000 milligrams.
Chromium: While it is known for its muscle building properties, doctors are now prescribing chromium to help regulate insulin levels in diabetic patients. Thirty-five micrograms is sufficient for a day.
Creatine: Creatine is known for its ability to boost muscle and memory. A dosage of five milligrams daily is recommended. The greatest benefits are seen when mixed with whey protein.
Folic acid: This is known to improve the flow of blood to the brain by reducing the effects of an amino acid known to induce blood clotting. A deficiency of folic acid has been known to cause Alzheimer’s. A daily dose of 500 mg is recommended. It is found in citrus fruits, cereals, and beans.
Glucosamine: With the passage of time, cartilage tends to get worn out. Glucosamine reverses cartilage damage and helps with joint stiffness. A good daily dose is 1,500 milligrams.
Omega 3s: Omega 3 oils alleviate heart problems by keeping high blood pressure in check and lowering levels of triglycerides. One thousand milligrams a day is a good dose for healthy people. Fatty fish is the best source.
Selenium: Take a dose of 200 milligrams daily. Brazil nuts are a natural source of selenium.
