When It Comes to Daily Multivitamins, One Size Doesn’t Fit All
There’s something important you need to know about how most companies think of you.
They don’t see you as an individual. And that can have a profound effect on your health.
To see what I mean, let’s look at socks.
Socks don’t come in individual sizes. They’re designed to fit a whole range of shoe sizes. Which means if you’re on one end or the other of that range, most socks will be a poor fit. Maybe a little too big or a little too small. But a bad fit nonetheless.
Most supplement makers think the same way. Their daily formulas are designed to be as “one size fits all” as possible. So their men’s and women’s formulas are remarkably similar.
Sometimes, they’re virtually identical with one or two added ingredients to “customize” the formula. But they don’t put a lot of effort into making a truly tailored product.
Which may help explain why so many men seem to say they don’t feel any different when they take most “men’s” multivitamin formulas.
Fortunately, a few of us see you differently. Here at Best Life Herbals, we believe you need a daily formula that addresses your most pressing needs as a man. And that means our Men’s Daily Formula is unlike other men’s formulas.
Get More of What You Need… Less of What You Don’t
Our Men’s Daily Formula contains a surprisingly high level of vitamins A (as Beta-carotene). Why? Well, for one thing, it may help you avoid prostate trouble.
Studies show higher levels of vitamin A are linked to a natural “self-destruct” mechanism built into abnormal prostate cells.1 And here’s where the brilliance of Beta-carotene really shines. Because your body can convert it to vitamin A.
You see, your body can’t handle large doses of vitamin A. It’s fat-soluble, which means it can build up in your body (in stored fat) until it reaches toxic levels.
But Beta-carotene isn’t toxic. So your body can store much larger amounts. And convert it to vitamin A as needed.
Which is great, because vitamin A is also a potent antioxidant. And you need it to make some pigments key to vision. (Thus, its name: retinol… as in “retina.”) It’s especially important for night vision.
By delivering high levels of Beta-carotene, Men’s Daily Formula covers your need for vision support, plus an extra boost to your manly need to block growth of abnormal prostate cells.
Beta-carotene is an example of something you need more of as a man… but what about when you need less of something? Or none at all?
What’s Missing From Men’s Daily Formula
Iron is an essential mineral. You need plenty of it to make hemoglobin – the component of red blood cells that carries oxygen to every cell in your body.
But most men don’t need that extra iron. In fact, most men get enough iron from their food. And studies show too much iron can be dangerous. Because men don’t lose iron every month – as women do – taking extra iron could be unhealthy for them.2
So you won’t find any iron in Men’s Daily Formula. The vast majority of men simply don’t need it.
What you do need, we try to deliver in the most effective way we possibly can.
Get More of the Nutrition You Need
Which is why we deliver many minerals in Men’s Daily Formula as amino acid chelates.
Way back in the early 1990s, researchers saw that minerals bonded to amino acids – the building blocks of proteins – absorbed into your body more readily.
Studies suggest these chelates may boost availability of the minerals… leading to greater health benefits.3
According to a leading consumer protection group, several studies have shown individual amino acid chelates can improve absorption. In one study the chelate form was absorbed 43% better than a more common form of a mineral.4
Why not just use “pure” minerals? It’s because minerals readily form bonds with other substances.
Think of how calcium is often listed on supplement bottles. It’s usually delivered as calcium carbonate or calcium citrate… but not as just plain “calcium.” Bonded minerals are more stable.
Chelates add proteins (amino acids) – usually from soy or rice – to the mix. And this appears to deliver key minerals in a more absorbable form.
So far, we’ve only talked about essential nutrients. That is, the vitamins and minerals you need for survival. And that’s where many ordinary supplement formulas stop. But not Men’s Daily Formula.
Addressing Your Unique Needs as a Man
But more than 40% of the ingredients in Men’s Daily Formula are aimed specifically at boosting your health as a man.
Some formulas add saw palmetto to their men’s multi to boost prostate health. And so do we. Men’s Daily Formula contains 120 mg of standardized saw palmetto extract.
But we also include pumpkin seed and lycopene, two key natural sources of prostate support. And inositol, which fights the effects of the estrogen build-up that occurs in men with age.
As a man, age brings hormone changes. Your testosterone levels drop, and your estrogen levels rise. This change is often called “feminization.”
One of the results of this change is a build-up of body fat. Unfortunately, this triggers a downward spiral. Higher levels of body fat encourage estrogen production. Which leads to more fat… more estrogen… and on it goes.
Inositol breaks the chain. It activates an enzyme that controls the formation of fat cells. This discourages a build-up of body fat. And that, in turn, slows the cycle.5
And then there’s a slightly touchier subject…
A Plethora of Performance Enhancers
If you’re over 40, chances are you’ve had at least an occasional “disappointment” in the bedroom. Even if it’s just once in a while, your confidence takes a real hit.
Fortunately, there’s help. And we’ve included plenty of it in Men’s Daily Formula.
There’s no reason you can’t enjoy an active love life well into your 70s, 80s, or even beyond. You may need a little support… but we’ve built that support into Men’s Daily Formula.
Support like Tribulus terrestris (TT). For centuries, herbalists have used TT to boost men’s performance and confidence. But we’re only just now figuring out how TT works.
TT appears to boost levels of nitric oxide (NO), which opens up circulation.
Healthy circulation is key to male performance. NO helps open up arteries to move more blood to where it’s most needed.6 And that can give you a real boost in the bedroom.
A 2011 review of herbs found they can have multiple effects on libido. Most importantly, the review confirmed herbs do effect libido.7
Muira puama was included in that review. And a study run by France’s Institute of Sexology suggests Muira puama may boost both libido and intimate activity.8
Then there’s Epimedium – also called “horny goat weed.”
This ancient herb is best known for its discovery as a trigger for intimate activity. Farmers noticed animals that ate the weed “got busy.” Herbalists tested it on people… and the rest is history.
This “weed” is now one of the most popular enhancement herbs in the world.
But it’s more than folklore.
Epimedium contains icariin – a plant compound that acts like testosterone. It’s called a “testosterone mimetic.” That is, it mimics the effects of the so-called “male hormone.”
And that makes it a key ingredient in Men’s Daily Formula. Because you deserve an active love life – no matter how old you are.
And these are just some of the16 nutrients specifically targeted to your health as a man. I simply don’t have the space to list how everything in Men’s Daily Formula is designed to boost your health as a man.
But I hope I’ve given you an idea of how Men’s Daily Formula is different from ordinary men’s formulas. And here’s another difference…
You’re Covered by Our Full-Year Satisfaction Guarantee
Most supplement companies want to rush you. They offer short guarantees. 30 or 60 days. A few, as much as 90 days. But, more often, shorter limits. They don’t give you much time to evaluate their formulas.
Wouldn’t you rather have some breathing space? A chance to decide how you really feel about a formula? Without having to watch the calendar for a fast-approaching cut-off date?
That’s why our standard satisfaction guarantee is a full year. So you have plenty of time to make up your mind. No pressure… no rush.
We promise you’ll be thrilled with the results… or we’ll buy your Men’s Daily Formula back. For up to a full year.
So, why settle for a “one-size-fits-all” multi… when you can enjoy all the advantages of a formula tailored to your specific needs as a man? Get the full support you need with Men’s Daily Formula.
Yours in continued good health,
