Balance Point For Men - Multivitamin Research

Vitamin A- Vitamin A is important for promoting skin integrity and healing. It is also essential for immune function, epithelial cell health, and night vision. If deficient in vitamin A, kidney stones and nutrient malabsorption are more likely to develop (1).

Vitamin C- One of the most well known nutrients for immunity, vitamin C also acts as a potent antioxidant, aids in tissue integrity and healing, as well as helping to reduce the occurrence of atherosclerosis and diabetes (2). Male infertility may also benefit from optimal amounts of vitamin C.

Vitamin D- Vitamin D is an integral component in the development and maintenance of bone strength, and may help to prevent osteoporosis. This fat-soluble vitamin assists with calcium absorption, cell growth, and immunological functioning (3). Vitamin D has also been shown to improve mood during the winter and helps improve symptoms of skin disorders like psoriasis and scleroderma (4). Supplementation with vitamin D can help improve symptoms in patients with bone metastases from prostate cancer and has even been shown to reduce the incidence of hip fractures in older adults (5).

Vitamin E- A potent antioxidant, vitamin E has been proven to be a safe vitamin when employed over long durations and may help to prevent atherosclerosis (6). It is also safeguards against platelet aggregation, stabilizes cell membranes, and can improve fertility in some men.

Vitamin K- Vitamin K plays a central role in blood clotting and can help prevent and treat osteoporosis.

  

B vitamins- B vitamins are vital for energy production, mood, proper function of the nervous system, macronutrient utilization, and immune function. Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid participate in homocysteine metabolism, thus reducing the risk of atherosclerosis (7).

Calcium- Calcium is essential for bone health. However, this mineral may also reduce leg cramps, high serum lipid levels, certain kidney stones, and salt-sensitive hypertension (8).

Iodine- Iodine is essential for the normal function of the thyroid gland, and helps metabolize excess fat.

Magnesium- Magnesium is required for cellular energy production and is commonly deficient in the average American diet. It can help with fatigue, fibromyalgia, restless legs syndrome, reactive hypoglycemia, and hypertension.

Zinc- Zinc is necessary for immunity, wound healing, and processed relating to the thyroid. This mineral can be beneficial in an array of skin problems, like acne and eczema, as well as certain types of arthritis, Type I and II diabetes, hearing, visual and taste problems, and gastric ulcers. In men, zinc supplementation may help with infertility and symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) (10,11).

Selenium- Selenium is needed for immune, thyroid, and liver function. It also acts as an antioxidant and may prevent the formation of certain cancers, like that of the prostate (12).

Copper- Another mineral essential for wound healing and strength of connective tissue, copper also exhibits mild anti-inflammatory activity and helps to regulate levels of cholesterol and glucose. When supplementing with zinc on a long-term basis, it is necessary to take additional copper to prevent deficiency. Persons with inflammatory arthritis can also benefit from supplemental copper.

Manganese- This mineral is involved in glucose metabolism, connective tissue integrity, and bone formation.

Chromium- Chromium has become a popular supplement for carbohydrate metabolism, and for good reason. Chromium is part of the glucose tolerance factor. It has been shown to reduce blood glucose, hemoglobin A1c levels, and serum cholesterol (13). Chromium is also beneficial for patients with reactive hypoglycemia.

Molybdenum- This micronutrient may help with general aches and pain, as well as sulfite sensitivity.

Potassium- Optimal levels of potassium may help with hypertension, fatigue, type II diabetes, and possibly aid in the prevention of stroke.

Silicon- This mineral is essential for connective tissue structure, contributing to strength of hair, nails and skin. It is also important in bone metabolism and immune function.

Vanadium- Another trace mineral required for bone and teeth formation. It also plays a role in reproduction and inhibits cholesterol synthesis.

Boron- It is imperative that both men and women have adequate amounts of boron to help prevent osteoporosis. Boron also plays a role in steroid hormone synthesis and may be beneficial for the treatment of osteoarthritis.

Choline- Choline is a part of the membrane of all cells. It may prevent fatty liver and problems with glucose metabolism in overweight and obese individuals. As well, choline may help improve memory (14).

Inositol- This nutrient participates in nerve signaling and may also help prevent fatty liver.

Calcium D-Glucarate- A naturally occurring chemical in fruits and vegetables, this compound may help prevent certain cancers.

Saw Palmetto- This medicinal plant can be beneficial to men with benign prostatic hyperplasia, reducing many of the symptoms associated with this condition. Saw Palmetto may also help with male-pattern hair loss (15, 16).

Citrus Bioflavonoids and Blueberry Powder- Flavonoids in blueberries and citrus fruits have potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral activity, and can potentiate the effects of vitamin C. Bioflavonoids can also help to maintain the integrity of capillaries (important to women with varicose veins), while reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Green Tea Extract- This extract contains flavonoids and the well known compound, EGCG, (a catechin) which may help reduce body fat and high cholesterol (17).

Alpha Lipoic Acid- Alpha-lipoic acid yields some anti-oxidant activity and may help prevent atherosclerosis and certain cancers.

Red Bean Powder- An extremely potent antioxidant, Red Bean Powder also contains compounds that help to reduce high levels of cholesterol (18).

Cranberry Powder- Cranberry is widely known as a medicinal plant and can be taken to prevent the occurrence of urinary tract infections (19). It is considered safe when administered over the long term, and has no known interactions with other drugs. Recently, research has uncovered a compound in cranberry with anti-cancer activity (20).

Nettle Root Extract- This plant can help reduce symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia and lower urinary tract symptoms, as well as reduce blood pressure (21,22).

Pumpkin Seed Powder- Pumpkin seeds may also improve symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia and may also protect against liver damage (23).

Lycopene- An optimal intake of lycopene is essential for men. This important nutrient acts as an antioxidant and helps to protect against certain forms of cancer, namely prostate cancer (24).

Lutein and Zeaxanthin- These macular pigments are important for optimal ocular health and function. Adequate amounts of these phytochemicals are necessary, as lower levels of zeaxanthin have been associated with macular degeneration, coronary heart disease, and cancers of the breast and lung (25).
