The Vitamins and Supplements Your Body Needs to Support Your Mental Health
Focus & Fitness
June, with Father’s Day, is usually the time when we celebrate the men in our lives – all the dads and those who are not dads. And it’s important for us to note that, although the men in our lives seem invincible sometimes, they need good nutrition with vitamins and minerals just like every human being. However, it also is known that men, in general, don’t take as many supplements as women, and some men don’t take any supplements at all. This could lead to having some nutrient deficits when looking at their basic daily needs. That is why it is important for men to look at perhaps starting a supplement regimen or adding some additional supplements into their daily routine. However, it’s important to investigate which ones are best for their specific needs.
As a reminder, always consult with your health care provider before starting or changing your current supplementation regime.
Both men and women have the same “basic” vitamin and mineral requirements (like Vitamins A, C, E, D, B’s, minerals, etc.) just by being a human! But there are certain nutrients that are more important for men than for women, and vice versa. These basic nutrient needs have been determined by the FDA and the FDA has established a “Daily Value” requirement they feel is necessary for human beings. You can see that designation (DV) on all supplements and even food. It’s considered what you need to maintain health.
That’s why it’s important to look first at a multivitamin and mineral supplement to help “fill in the gaps”. Ideally, we would get all of our required nutritional needs from our diet alone, but unfortunately that isn’t always the case. We try, but it’s not as easy as one would think. So supplementation is the next best thing. In todays market it is easy to find a gender specific multivitamin for men (and women). And you may have noticed the “DV” is a little different for some of the nutrients. You see, men don’t usually need additional iron in a supplement, which is why most men’s multivitamins have little or no iron in them. And often men’s supplements have things like saw palmetto or pumpkin see extract not usually found in a women’s vitamin.
A great place to start would be with the Country Life Core Daily-1® Multivitamin for Men.

Are there additional supplements a man can take? Of course! And each person should evaluate their own needs as they start on their “supplement” journey.
Let’s think about muscles. Men, in general, have more muscle mass than women and have a tendency to do more heavy lifting or working out. This can be a reason to consider taking an L-glutamine amino acid supplement.
L-Glutamine is what is known as a non-essential amino acid – meaning the body can produce it as long as the essential amino acids are available. However, L-glutamine has many functions in the body so supplementing it can provide additional support to muscles as well as the immune cells. Amino acids, including glutamine, are the important building blocks of protein in the body.
When considering an L-glutamine supplement look for a pharmaceutical grade ingredient. Country Life® provides an exceptional option with the L-glutamine capsules.
Easy to take capsules provide 500 mg of free form l-glutamine per capsule along with Vitamin B6 to support utilization of this important amino acid.
