What Is the Best Multivitamin for Men Over 50?
Medically Reviewed by Dr. Nicole Avena
If you’re a man in or approaching your 50s, you’ve probably noticed that your body doesn’t quite work the way it used to.
You’re not alone.
Signs of Aging in Men
There are many signs that your age might be catching up with you if you’re a middle-aged male. Here are just a few:
- Loss of muscle mass/joint pain
- Low energy/fatigue
- Loss of ambition/low enthusiasm
- Reduced sex drive/erectile dysfunction
- Low mood/mood swings
- Poor concentration/memory problems
- Sleep issues/tiredness
This is just a short list of symptoms; other, more serious, conditions may involve your heart or other organs.
For many adult men, the culprit for their issues with energy, mood, and libido is low testosterone.
Testosterone is a hormone that’s important for male development. It’s responsible for the deepening of the voice, the growth of facial hair, and many other features traditionally associated with maleness. Also, testosterone is the primary hormone responsible for libido in men.
Like many hormones, testosterone levels decrease with age. The aging process can leave some men with low testosterone levels that have been shown to increase feelings of anxiousness, low mood, and a host of other issues.
Also, testosterone can be prematurely reduced (at any age) by long-term stress, exposure to environmental pollutants, insulin imbalance, narcotics use, and many other lifestyle factors.
Most men approaching their 40s and 50s go through a form of menopause called andropause. The symptoms of andropause include lowered sex drive, mood issues, lack of motivation, fatigue, increased body fat, and decreased muscle mass, strength, and stamina.
One helpful way men can reduce the risk of age-related problems is to take high-quality supplements.
Some have suggested that the foods currently available aren’t providing enough of the nutrients the brain and body need. Despite your best efforts to follow a healthy diet, many foods are so low in nutrients that you’ll likely have a gap in nutrition.
That’s where dietary supplements come in – they can help fill the gaps in your diet with the nutrients you’re missing.
The foundation of every vitamin regimen should be a high-quality, broad-spectrum multivitamin and multimineral supplement.
Why You Should Take a Multivitamin
Many people have nutrient deficiencies stemming from the frequent consumption of foods associated with the standard American diet (SAD). According to one review, this has led to widespread vitamin and mineral deficiencies in our nation.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated that approximately 90% of Americans don’t consume the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Since most adults aren’t getting enough vitamins in their diet, it’s recommended that everyone should take a broad-spectrum multivitamin supplement every day.
Further bolstering the importance of taking a multivitamin supplement daily is a compelling study conducted in 2010 that included over 200 men between the ages of 30 and 55. The men were separated into two groups: one group took a multivitamin and the other took a placebo. At the end of one month, the men who took the multivitamin reported better mood and cognitive performance, and less stress and mental fatigue.
