Vitamins, Minerals, and Supplements

by Kimberly Hays June 1st, 2018 | Health Observance
While the nutrition from the food we eat and the vitamins we take are equal for both men and women as far as national guidelines, we often think that is all that both sexes need. Actually, because men frequently exercise strenuously, and they have to deal with erectile dysfunction and other reproductive organ issues, there are specific minerals, vitamins, and other supplements they should take to meet the body’s needs aside from a healthy diet and a multi-vitamin.

Vitamins – Men need vitamin C for more than general health. Vitamin C is very important for prostate health, and it is
