Supporting optimal health isn’t limited to a specific age or gender - it’s something we should all consider throughout life, no matter who we are. That said, men’s health isn’t talked about as frequently as it should be.
To take the guesswork out of starting a supplement program, the following three foundational products are all selected with men’s needs in mind. Dads, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1) A multivitamin
You want the best multivitamin you can find to fill the gaps in your diet, yet that choice can be overwhelming. With all the options available, do you know how to choose the one that's right for you? MegaFood’s Doctor Formulated multivitamin collection was formulated by Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., an internationally recognized expert on dietary supplements, herbal medicine, and integrative medicine, with a career spanning 35 years. We relied on her expertise to help us update our line, and all that goodness comes to you in just two tablets a day in Multi for Men. (Take note: We have formulations for dads in all stages of life. This includes Multi for Men 40+, and Multi for Men 55+.)
2) A probiotic
There’s still some confusion out there about why probiotics are a key foundational supplement. Let’s start with the microbiome: our very own community of bacteria, including the good, the not so good, and the downright bad. Recent research on the microbiome has focused on everything from digestion to immunity to obesity, and it’s worth paying attention to. We have the power to shift our microbiome in many ways, from the foods that we choose to eat each day, to the probiotic supplements we take.
Enter MegaFlora®, our original 14 strain blend of probiotics. MegaFlora is an excellent foundational choice to support this community of beneficial bacteria for men. It helps support intestinal health, bowel regularity and immunity.* Happy digestion = happy dad.
3) A daily dose of turmeric
There is a lot of buzz around Turmeric these days regarding the role it can play in daily health and wellness support – and that, of course, includes support for dads.* Turmeric is one of the most widely used herbs in the country, and is a key player in maintaining a healthy whole body inflammation response.* We’re not just talking about that sore knee, either – whole-body inflammation may not be as noticeable, but can impact our health if not properly managed.
Turmeric has been respected and ingested by people from all over the world for thousands of years, and is believed to have originated in India. A relative to ginger, this bright yellow-orange root has a long and colorful history.
A must-try trifecta
When you’re a busy dad, things like playing catch, helping with homework, and that long list of after-school activities generally take precedence over implementing a vitamin routine. But whether you’re new to supplementing your diet, or simply re-evaluating your regimen, a multi, a probiotic, and a daily dose of turmeric are three simple, go-to, daily formulas for building a man’s strong health foundation.*
