The 5 Best Supplements for Men

What to add to your male diet if you need an extra boost!

We all try to provide the best for our individual bodies, intaking what nutrients we need to function in a healthy and happy manner. Sometimes; however, supplements are necessary to give you that extra boost. 

The Best Supplements for Men

Perhaps you’re not getting enough of a nutrient or vitamin because you have a restricted diet or you’re allergic to certain foods, or maybe you just can’t seem to meet the daily quota of fruits and vegetables to keep your energy levels high and your mind powerful. 

Whatever reasons you have for wanting to increase your body’s performance, "supplements" does not have to be a dirty word or conjure up negative judgements, as it often does in our society. There are a lot of positive benefits that come from taking supplements if they are right for your body. 

Every body functions differently, and especially when it comes to the nutrients that males need vs. females, there can be a huge distinctive gap. 

These are our top 5 recommendations for the best supplements that men can take. Whether it’s a daily vitamin regime you’re looking for to increase overall health, or a simple way to boost immunity and lose a little extra weight. 

1. Multivitamin/Multimineral

80% of men don’t get enough fruits and vegetables in their diet, and one of the best ways to counteract that besides increasing your veggies is by using a multivitamin made specifically for men. It’s best to look for ones that provide a good mix of different vitamins and minerals that make up 100% of your daily requirements. Those that claim to provide you with over 100% tend to not have any greater benefits and are seen as a waste of time. 

It's also important to note that there have been studies linking an excess of iron to an increase in heart problems in men, so it’s good to find multivitamins without extra iron for men. 

2. Green Tea

Green Tea is one of the best natural supplements for maintaining a healthy weight. It’s also a good alternative to drinking coffee, if you still want caffeine in your daily life. If you’re looking to tone muscles while losing weight, green tea is a great option. 

3. Fish Oil 

If you’re a young male, chances are you’re not yet thinking about heart problems. But if you have a family history of heart issues or you fall in the 40 and up range, it’s a good idea to start thinking about supporting your heart in a healthy way. 

Fish oil has been proven to be one of the best substances to aid in healthy heart functioning. It’s recommended to take a least 1-2 grams a day for it to be effective.

In addition to aiding in heart problems, fish oil can improve cognitive performance, to make it a great supplement for men to take all around. 

4. Creatine

Often times used in reference to body builders and weight lifters, creatine has the benefit of helping grow lean-muscle mass for the average Joe as well. Creatine is the synthetic version of a naturally occurring energy source that your body stores in muscles during exercise.

It has been shown that with the extra boost of this energy, muscles tend to have a speedier recovery and therefore grow at a more efficient rate. 

It’s recommended for most males to take 3-5 grams of creatine per day after a workout to see the most results. 

5. Papaya Leaf/Papaya Seeds

Papaya leaf extract is another supplement that’s not to be overlooked. Papayas provide you with a variety of nutrients, and contain the enzymes, papain and chymopapain. These nutrients and enzymes are great for helping your body maintain healthy functioning, most notably when it comes to aiding digestion, boosting immunity, and other such benefits. 

Herbal Papaya offers both Papaya Leaf Extract in capsules and liquid form and Papaya Seed Extract in liquid form. Papaya Seed Powder is also available at the online Herbal Papaya store.

Hi Lee,

Our papaya leaf liquid extract does help support blood platelet function, but our Blood Support Capsules are made specifically with blood platelet health in mind so I would recommend trying those if that’s what you’re using our product for.

I have been using the liquid extract of yours to raise my platelet levels. But I see you have capsules, and one of them specifically says for platelets/blood support. Can you tell me which form of yours is the MOST effective? Am I doing right by using the liquid? I want to place an order but would like to hear from you specifically on this. Thanks
