“So, I can just pop one of these every day and continue to eat what I want, right?”
Yeah, that’s not really the mindset this list of the six best men’s multivitamins is meant to create.
When paired with a balanced diet and exercise, however, clean and whole-food-based multivitamins like Vitamin Code Men’s Multivitamin—our top pick—can significantly improve your long-term health and wellness outlook.
Whichever men’s multivitamin you choose, this list will show you what to look for, what to avoid, and how to choose between so many options.
Vitamin Code Men’s Multivitamin
Leading the field with a huge selection of organic, whole-food-based nutrients that support energy, cognition, and more, we don’t see Vitamin Code Men’s Multivitamin being outdone any time soon.
Best for: Anyone willing to pay a bit extra for an extremely clean, whole-food based men’s multivitamin from a well-reputed brand.
Built on a principle of “traceability,” Garden of Life and their whole-food-derived supplements are all about bringing real nutrients from real food to the everyday consumer in the purest form possible.
This formulation targets cognition, energy, prostate and heart health, resilience to stress, and more.
Yes, you’re paying a premium for these capsules, but there simply is nothing on this list—or, to our knowledge, “out there”—that can come close to the whole-food-based nutrition delivered by this thoughtfully balanced blend of organic foods, probiotics, antioxidants, and more.
It also helps that the ingredients in Vitamin Code Men’s Multivitamin never exceed 115 degrees Fahrenheit in the manufacturing process, helping to preserve the nutrients in their natural, “raw” environment.
Best for: Any man looking to supplement as many nutrients as possible with a trustworthy product.
It may not be as perfectly primped as Garden of Life’s multivitamin with all of its organic ingredients, but Hi-Health Men’s Multi is not messing around when it comes to nutrient density.
Between the vitamin and mineral content, whole food blend, men’s support complex, and energy support complex, this veritable cornucopia of wellness-supporting ingredients covers a massive spread of vital nutrients.
But Hi-Health didn’t just carelessly throw fistfuls of ingredients into the formulation; the saw palmetto berry, green tea, and antioxidant ingredients speak to a well-thought-out ingredient list that targets prostate health, reduced energy, and other key issues commonly affecting men.
Best for Men of a Certain Age: Solaray Men’s Golden Multivitamin
Best for: Middle-aged to older men looking for a boost in athletic and/or sexual performance.
Of a dual nature in terms of its contributions to mankind is the tribulus terrestris (TT) plant, which, when it isn’t pricking the feet or bicycle tires of intrepid adventurers, is used (and has been used for millennia) as a male virility booster.
TT extracts still stand up under modern scientific investigations, which point to a class of compounds within the plant called saponins as responsible for boosts in sexual performance, coronary heart disease treatment, modulating hypertension, and more.
True to form, NOW has turned this ancient remedy into a perfectly concentrated, high-value supplement made to GMP (good manufacturing practices) standards.
Each tablet of NOW Sports Tribulus contains 1000mg of an extract that is standardized to 45% saponins.
Seeing as it isn’t a multivitamin, it’s been relegated to honorable mention status, but for any man looking for a virility boost, NOW Sports Tribulus is among the best of its kind.
Multivitamin for Men FAQ
Which brand of multivitamin is best?
The answer is based upon each customer’s unique circumstances, but generally, Solaray, Hi-Health, Garden of Life, and NOW are among the most high-quality multivitamin brands around.
Is it good to take a multivitamin everyday?
It depends on you, your diet, and the multivitamin. A person with no nutritional deficiencies or conditions following a balanced diet should be able to safely take a one-a-day multivitamin every day.
As always, it’s safest to defer to your primary care physician if you have any questions or concerns.
Who should avoid taking multivitamins?
Various forms of metabolic disorders, anemia, ulcers, and many other conditions can impair your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Some conditions make it unsafe to take a multivitamin.
Consult with your primary care physician if you have questions or concerns.
Are there any negatives to taking vitamins?
Overloading on some vitamins can cause adverse effects along a broad spectrum, depending on the nutrient and other circumstances. Inferior products containing toxins and other harmful substances will obviously cause adverse reactions as well.
These are two key reasons why tracking your RDAs and trusting only the best brands are best practices.
What are the best vitamins to take daily?
While we can point to widespread deficiencies in vitamin D and B vitamins as likely answers, we’re compelled out of the need to respect each person’s circumstances to repeat the party line: it depends on who you are.
Getting a blood test and/or speaking to your physician may help narrow down your nutritional needs.
Why do doctors not routinely recommend vitamins?
Fear of contaminated and/or inferior products, hesitancy to remove nutrients from their natural sources, and a lack of long-term studies (in some cases) are all reasons that doctors cite for not recommending multivitamins to their patients.
Not every multivitamin is a catch-all. Research and shop with your unique goals in mind.
Whole-food sourced ingredients are great, organic versions are better.
Food is for physical wellness, and pharmaceutical products are for mental health conditions—that’s where most of us land when it comes to nutrition psychiatry.
Nutrition is understandably not priority one in the chaotic moments immediately following a traumatic brain injury (TBI), but as soon as the patient is stable, nutrition therapy shares center stage with other key tenets of TBI rehabilitation.
Normally, we’re content to bounce around new and/or controversial theories on nutritional concepts all day, but every so often, we have the luxury of seeing in black and white.
This may seem like a fun-killing exercise at first, but we’re not interested in coddling or pandering to our readers, so let’s get the harsh reality out of the way: most of us haven’t earned the right to binge on vacation.
