Garden of Life Vitamin Code Men’s Formula is specifically designed for men, with carefully selected nutrients to provide support that men need: with vitamins and minerals to support vision, prostate, heart, stress, and digestive health.
Vitamin Code Men’s Formula offers support for a healthy prostate with vitamin E, Lycopene, Selenium, and Zinc.
Vitamin E has received a lot of attention as a prostate support nutrient. However, it is a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant that has been shown to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells in a lab. Negative press has been given to a study that suggested that vitamin E may be detrimental to prostate health, but that studied the effect of one single, synthetic isolate. The vitamin E in Vitamin Code Men’s formula comes from raw, whole-food ingredients with their Code Factors intact.
Lycopene is the carotenoid that gives tomatoes their signature, bright red hue. This pigment acts as a powerful antixoidant in the body, and an increased intake of lycopene has been linked to a reduced risk of prostate cancer.
Selenium is a mineral responsible for many functions throughout our body. Studies have shown that prostate rates are higher in areas with less selenium in the soil. A double-blind, placebo-controlled sutdy suggested that selenium could offer a significant reduction in the risk of developing prostate cancer.
B Complex vitamins, vitamin C, and Vitamin E can help support cardiovascular health for men of all ages.
B Vitamins can support heart health for everyone, not just men. Studies show that increased consumption of B complex vitamins, such as folate and B6, was associated with significantly fewer deaths from stroke, heart disease, and other cardiovascular causes. Researchers believe that B vitamins may fight cardiovascular disease by lowering levels of homocysteine, an amino acid in the blood that is also affected by diet. Vitamin C is the subject of intensive study for its benefits on cardiovascular health. Vitamin C may reduce the buildup of plaque that can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Vitamin E may help protect against LDL (“bad”) cholesterol oxidization, helping to protect against the risk of heart disease.
Mental and Physical Energy
B Complex Vitamins do more than just offer support for the cardivascular system, they are also an excellent source of energy. Lack of vitamin B12 can lead to physical fatigue, and mental issues such as difficulty concentrating or remembering things. Medications that treat heartburn by supporessing gastric acid production can lead to B12 deficiencies, as can regular consumption of aspirin. For men taking either of these, getting enough B complex vitamins is doubly important.
Chromium is a mineral that can effect both physical and mental energy levels. Chromium influences blood sugar levels. By regulating blood sugar levels, chromium physically can help prevent blood sugar highs and crashes, which can lead to low energy levels. Since glucose (sugar) is a primary fuel for the brain, chromium can also help keep the brain supplied with a regular supply of energy, preventing a feeling of menal fatigue.
