4 Multivitamins for Men
A daily multivitamin is always a good idea, even if you have a healthy and balanced diet, as you can be absolutely sure that you are getting the recommended amount of vitamins and minerals, and to give you an extra boost if you need it. However, with so many different brands of multivitamins aimed at men on the market, it can be hard to tell which one is right for you, especially as not all multivitamins are created equal- some are definitely much better than others!
When buying a multivitamin, always look at the list of ingredients and pay attention to the levels of nutrients included in the formula.
Here is a brief run-down on four of the best multivitamins that are specifically targetted at athletes, bodybuilders, and regular gym-goers and, we think, are well-worth the money:
1. MuscleTech Platinum Multivitamin
Delivering twenty minerals and vitamins, with 856 mg of amino support the MuscleTech Platinum Multivitamin offers a no-nonsense high-potency approach to maintaining your general health. It’s pretty easy to see why it was rated 9.1 out of 10 by uk.bodybuilding.com.
2. Vita Jym by Jym
Designed for athletes, Vita Jym by Jym provides tailored micronutrients needed to support muscle growth and is also good for improving energy levels and general well-being. Contains decent amounts of every vitamin and mineral needed to support performance. Have a look at creator Jim Stoppani’s videos on YouTube to find out why the good stuff is in, but some ingredients often found in many brands have been deliberately excluded.
3. Controlled Labs Orange Triad
This a solid multivitamin marketed at serious athletes with the added bonus of joint, digestive and immune support and will noticeably boost your energy levels. The recommended number of pills is six per day, so you might want to pace yourself with a glass of water as the tablets are quite large and need to be swallowed. Iron-free so none of the compacting side-effects too much iron can induce!
4. Foundation Series Multivitamin by Bodybuilding.com
The Foundation Series Multivitamin encourages you to take care of the basics of your health and performance -or the foundation blocks – by providing an all-encompassing range of micronutrients, as well as AAKG, BCAAs and herbal extracts tailored to maximise your vitality. You can be confident that you won’t have any nutrient deficiencies with this multivitamin.
