In Nutrition

VitaminsVitamins and supplements are important. With any form of deficiency in them, you are risking the capability of feeling 100% both mentally and physically. While a multi-vitamin may sometimes suffice, these are the top Key Vitamins men should put top on their list.

VITAMIN D

While the good ol’ sun may provide you with the Vitamin D you need to sustain, studies after studies show that we just do not get enough. Need leaner abs? We found a study that noted participants who had a glass of orange juice fortified with calcium and vitamin D had the fat around their abdomen reduced significantly over time.

Need more? Studies also found that, regardless of the type of cancer, most cancer patients were found to be deficient in Vitamin D.

FISH OIL

The health benefits of omega-3’s have been boasted about for years. Not only do they improve your mental clarity, but they also aid in the maintenance of testosterone levels. Fatty Acids also reduce the chances  of dying from heart disease by more than one-third, according to Men’s Fitness. If that doesn’t make you want to run to your local pharmacy and pick up a bottle, Fatty Acids also help break up blood clots and lower your cholesterol and blood pressure.

Studies indicate that fish oil can prevent prostate, colon, and breast cancers as they stop any changes of a cell from normal to cancerous. Research currently being conducted is further solidifying a direct correlation between cancer prevention and Fish Oil Fatty Acids.

VITAMIN B12

Vitamin B12 makes your red blood cells the work horses they need to be to make sure you are on your “A-Game” at all times. Red Blood Cells are important because they are responsible for carrying nutrients throughout the body while clearing your organs and muscles of any waste. In addition, Vitamin B12 guides both testosterone and other powerful hormones to your muscles (which is essential during any type of workout).

The super powers of Vitamin B12 don’t stop there. It is found that over 30% of people hospitalized for depression are found to be deficient in Vitamin B12. Coincidence? We don’t think so!
