Bluebonnet Nutrition Targeted Multiples Men's Choice 90 Caplets
Men work hard and play hard, so they need a multiple formula to tackle the hits they receive from every day living. Providing complete nutritional support for adult men to fill dietary gaps is only half the battle. Men of all ages should be concerned about heart health since steps can be taken early in life, such as practicing healthy lifestyle habits and maintaining the health and integrity of their heart. This is why the nutritional scientists at Bluebonnet have incorporated pomegranate, tomato extract and coenzyme Q10, as well as mixed tocopherols, L-arginine, L-carnitine, taurine and white willow bark extract to provide nutritional support for a healthy heart. In addition, this innovative multiple for men 18-49 also supplies the popular and potent antioxidants, vitamins C, E and beta-carotene, with a special blend of turmeric, elderberry, marigold, green, white and black tea extracts to address the ravaging effects of free radicals caused by stress, pollution, smoking, drinking and processed fast foods. Plus, scientifically researched ingredients like saw palmetto, pygeum, broccoli, rhodiola and American/Panax ginseng extracts have also been incorporated into this multiple formula to support male stamina and prostate health
The human body requires a broad range of essential and nonessential nutrients for general health and well-being, each of which has a specific function. Essential nutrients are ones that the body cannot manufacture or are produced in limited amounts; therefore, they must be obtained from the diet. These include carbohydrates, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and water.
Vitamins are essential organic (carbon-containing) nutrients that are found in food, and they contribute to good health by regulating metabolism and assisting in the biochemical processes that release energy from digested food. They are classified as either fat- or water-soluble. The fat-soluble vitamins include A, D, E and K. The water-soluble vitamins include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6, folate, B12, biotin, pantothenic acid and vitamin C (ascorbic acid). With the exception of B12, water-soluble vitamins are stored in the body in limited amounts and are excreted within one to four days; therefore, they must be replenished on a daily basis. Fat-soluble vitamins; however, are stored in the body's adipose tissues and liver.
Dietary minerals make up 60-80% of all the inorganic (noncarbon-containing) material in the body and fall into two categories: macrominerals and microminerals. There are seven macrominerals Ð also known as major or bulk minerals: calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulfur. They are present in virtually every cell in the body. In fact, the human body needs at least 100 milligrams (mg) of each every day Ð just for normal functioning and well-being. Microminerals, commonly called trace minerals, are required in smaller quantities Ð typically less than 100 mg per day. Still, some are considered “essential” for good nutrition. Essential microminerals include chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and zinc. Dietary minerals serve a life sustaining function by helping the body operate properly and remain strong. Minerals not only build skeletal and soft tissues, they also regulate processes Ð such as heartbeat, normal blood clotting, internal fluid pressure, nerve reactions, impulse transmissions, muscle contractions, oxygen transport, acid-base balance to keep the body pH neutral, and enzyme and hormone systems.
In today's fast-paced world, many individuals rely on fast food and a not-so-well-balanced nutritious diet. Therefore, most people do not get the daily recommended allowance of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that are required for optimal health and wellness. Both vitamins and minerals are fundamental in the growth, development, metabolism, maintenance and repair of tissues, coenzyme systems and general ongoing health. Multiple vitamin and mineral formulas help to bridge the nutrient gap in daily diets. So, no matter one's activity level, dietary habits, age, gender or health status, supplementing the diet with a multiple vitamin and mineral formula can provide benefits that the whole body can utilize.
