In a perfect world no one would need vitamins and we all could eat whatever we wanted. Since we all know nothing is perfect, vitamins and minerals help to keep our bodies healthy. This is not just a women or children’s thing, it is for the men in our lives also!
Men need more vitamins and minerals in nearly every nutritional category, except meat and beans. Men between 31 and 50 need to eat 350% more dark green vegetables and 150% more fruit per day just to meet federal dietary guidelines. My brothers can eat a lot but I do not know about that much.
Individual supplements did not fare well in trials reported HERE on WebMD. Their benefits may depend on interactions with food components. For example, strawberries, a rich source of vitamin C and other nutrients. But can you truly replicate, in a supplement, everything in a strawberry. No, while I cannot say it is impossible, but it would be extremely hard. Some vitamins are replicating just a part of the strawberry, and this is why multi vitamins gain advantages with their complex interactions similar to our food.
With Nutrigold Men’s Multi Gold they use the best ingredients available, no synthetic isolates, Whole-Foods, organic fruits and vegetables, and herbs.
These vegetarian capsules are filled with ground up green material, it looks similar to ground up tea, but really small. They were easy for my husband to swallow. It is recommended to take 3 capsules per day. My husband did not have any type of problems, stomach or otherwise, with taking these capsules. There was no after taste with this capsule.
