Multivitamins are a quick and easy way to ensure you are reaching your daily recommended intake of essential nutrients. Keeping your body in good supply of nutrients is key to good health and essential for fitness goals, such as muscle growth or weight loss. Due to the convenience and popularity of them, the market is flooded with hundreds of multivitamins, each claiming to be the best. We have taken a closer look at multivitamins, and were surprised by the results! Here is our guide to choosing a mens multivitamin.

What to Look for in a Mens Multivitamin

Generally, it is a good idea to look for a broad spectrum multivitamin. It should include a range of essential nutrients, most importantly vitamin A, D, E, B1, B2, B3, B12, C, Zinc, Copper, Iron and Folic Acid. Ideally you want a multivitamin that is to be taken three times a day, this will ensure that your levels remain constant throughout the day.

What to avoid in a Mens Multivitamin

  • Avoid vitamins with claims such as ‘300% of your daily requirement!’ Overdosing is useless at best, and possibly harmful at worst. Your kidney and liver need to filter out excesses of minerals and vitamins, which puts a large burden on them. If this is constant for a long duration of time, it can cause issues.
  • Vitamins that need to be taken more than three or four times day. Some require 11 doses per day! Money wasting, impratical and not required!
  • Vitamins that are not from a reputable company or approved by a regulatory body. Due to their popularity there are many vitamins made from inferior ingredients, and do not follow strict quality control.
