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.

Older men take notice. You need to be aware of whether your diet consists of the right kinds of foods.  Thinking about nutrition goes way beyond eating an iceberg lettuce salad twice a week.  One must understand that it takes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, and healthy fats to build a nutritious diet.  Plus, once a man reaches 50, he should not eat the same as he did in his earlier years.

How Many Calories Per Day?

Reading Fact Labels for Heart Health

by Kimberly Hays February 16th, 2018 | Health Observance
Fact labels have been on food products for the past 20 years. They were put in place by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to allow us make sound decisions on what we buy, as well as knowing the Percentage Daily Value (%DV) of vitamins and nutrients in foods. Using the Percentage Daily Values can help to maintain heart health.
