Vitamins are necessary for the proper functioning of the body. Food is the best way to get vitamins, but due to body chemistry, illness, or other condition certain men may require specific vitamins. Thanks to advances in modern medicine, we now know what some of the best supplements for men are.
Vitamin supplements for men include:
Vitamin A is essential for healthy immune system and healthy eyesight. In fact, it is so powerful, that it has been prescribed to pregnant women afflicted by HIV to help reduce the risk of transmission of the virus to children during pregnancy and birth. In men, vitamin A can help the immune system fight off infections. It can also keep bacteria and viruses from entering the body by strengthening the abilities of the skin and mucous membranes. It has been shown to aid in bone growth and eye health – and some men even take this vitamin to help boost sperm count.
Vitamin B-12 helps maintain the nervous system, aids metabolism and aids in the formation of red blood cells. A member of the B complex of vitamins, B12 can contribute to a healthy nervous system by aiding in the production of myelin, a fatty type of protective sheath that insulates fibers of the nerves from damage. Because of the myelin, electrical impulses are allowed to move through the body as efficiently as possible. B12 can also keep the brain healthy, which is why it is often prescribed as a memory and energy booster, and why it may be prescribed to Alzheimer’s patients. People with a deficiency in vitamin B12, in extreme cases, may exhibit symptoms commonly associated with dementia or sclerosis
Vitamin D helps maintain proper blood levels of calcium and the body absorb. Vitamin D is known for the fact that our bodies produce vitamin D naturally through exposure to the sun, but this vitamin has been shown to support a healthy skeleton, which becomes more important with age. Some exciting news regarding vitamin D is that it has been shown in recent studies that people who get more vitamin D may have a reduced risk of heart attack and stroke. This is believed because the vitamin has been shown to reduce inflammation in the arteries. The sun isn’t the only way to get vitamin D – which is good because too much sun can damage the skin. It can also be received through the food you eat or by direct injection with a procedure known as IV vitamin therapy.
IV vitamin therapy has existed in common practice since about the 1970s but has caught a wave of renewed popularity since several A-List celebrities have sworn by its use. The process involves the intravenous injection of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream through an IV drip. This is a highly preferred way of receiving vitamins and minerals required for the human body to function properly because it allows the injected nutrients to be introduced directly into the bloodstream instead of passing through the digestive system, where the effectiveness and potency of the nutrients can be diluted by the stomach and liver. IV vitamin therapy sessions can take anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes on average. Vitamins and minerals can be injected one at a time or as part of a multivitamin cocktail.
