Why are some multivitamins marketed for men over 50? Is this really necessary?

Not needed; consciou: For the "average" individual without any health problems eating a Western diet, multivitamins aren't needed. There are exceptions, of course - you should be checked for Vitamin D deficiency if you live in the snow belt, for instance. But the average diet provides all the vitamins you need.

The Key: Eat Healthy: Well, obviously, your voice will deepen and you'll grow hair in your ears. Actually, this whole commercial mess of specialized multivitamins or vitamin concentrates grinds my gears. What a bunch of hooey. If you took that pill appropriately your body would take what it needs and dump the rest.

Do mens 50+ multivitamins improve and increase romantic drive?

No and yes....: If you have a normal diet and eat a variety of foods, you probably do not need a multivitamin. However, it probably won't hurt you either (other than your wallet). Atenolol and multivitamins mix fine. Atenolol, however, is not the best beta-blocker. Talk to your doctor about metoprolol or nebivolol if you must have a beta-blocker. If you haven't had a heart attack you should talk to your dr. ...Read more

I have the brand NOW ADAM Superior Men's Multivitamin Dietary, and it says take 2 tablets daily with food. Should I take two pills at the same time?

No: If you take both together, you will exceed your body's ability to absorb and pee out any potential benefits (urine looks neon yellow). One at a time is better, and if not malnourished or known deficient, one a day (= 1/2 dose) likely fine, cheaper, and less risk for any toxicity. ...Read more

Tablets or capsules: I am not impressed with the Gummies- they have 3 artificial colors, sugar, artificial sweeteners & other toxins you don't need. There are many much better choices. See http://www. Multivitaminguide. Org/ for independent ratings of 101 brands- any in the top 30 are great.

I take a natures made multivitamin that contains soy lithium and soybean oil. Will this cause ED and infertility in men?

I take a natures made multivitamin that contains soy lithium and soybean oil. Will this cause ED and infertility in men?

Unlikely: I know of no evidence for such a causal relationship. The amount of soy in a multivitamin is unlikely to cause either ED or infertility. Both the coreg (carvedilol) and the clonodine you are taking can lower BP, and clonodine has known side effects that affect sexual function. Talk with your doctor about side effects of your meds, and consider a consult with a health psychologist if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Not exactly but...: I recommend everyone take a good multivitamin including those with candida issues, and Garden of Life Men's multivitamin is one of the better ones out there, but that alone won't do much if anything to treat the yeast.
