According to the USDA, men ages 31 to 50 need to eat 350% more dark green vegetables and 150% more fruit per day in order to meet federal dietary guidelines. In fact, men have deficits in nearly every nutritional category. Those men who are training in various sports at a competitive level need help to exceed these guidelines while also maintaining energy, muscle mass and performance.
For this reason, we have included unique ingredients in our Oxylent® Men’s Multivitamin and Mineral + Superfoods formula such as a full spectrum multivitamin profile, Albion® Chelated Minerals, Synergized® Superfood Blend, Maca Root Powder and Tribulus Extract to ensure men are receiving a well-rounded supplement to maximize their overall health.
Vitamins A, C, D3, E, K2 and Methylfolate
It is common knowledge that vitamin D is very important for bone health combined with calcium. By adding vitamin K2 to the formula, the combination of these three ingredients work closely to support bone strength. If vitamin K2 is not included in your diet, bones and teeth may not have the calcium they need to be strong which can lead to various health issues including osteoporosis. More specifically, K2 has been successful in treating osteoporosis for many years! It does this by activating two types of proteins which then carry calcium into the bones.†
In addition, vitamin C has a long list of benefits, and as such, has been used as a dietary supplement for many years. These include immune system support, decreased hypertension and maintenance of elastically in the skin. It is also a powerful antioxidant for the production of collagen which supports muscle and blood vessel strength. Due to the body being unable to manufacture vitamin C, it necessary to include it within your diet and/or supplement regimen. †
Vitamin A plays a role in maintaining healthy vision, neurological function, healthy skin, while also acting as a natural antioxidant. Vitamin E, like others, also plays multiple roles within the body—most widely noted for its function and maintenance on the immune system and ability to fight off free radicals. †
Oxylent® is proud to use methylated folate (5-MTHF) within Oxylent® Men’s Multivitamin and Mineral + Superfoods formula to provide the highest quality folate available in its most active form. Many multivitamins on the market today use the synthetic form of folate – folic acid – within their formulas, and research has shown a large percentage of the population is not able to sufficiently convert and utilize this form. Folate has been shown to support cardiovascular, neural and overall health, and supplementing with its most active form is recommended by nutritionists and health care practitioners worldwide. †
Why Supplementing with a Multivitamin is Important
Albion® Chelated Minerals
The metals in chelates are absorbed significantly greater than corresponding amounts of ingested
inorganic metal salts (ordinary minerals). Albion® metal amino acid chelates have been chemically validated, and, consequently, are the only known chelates that meet the NNFA definition. They are scientifically and clinically proven to be safe, predictable and effective.
- Their TRAACS trademark proves the existence of the chelate structure
- They are soluble and stable in the acid environment of the stomach
- They are up to 20x more bioavailable than regular minerals
- They don’t compete with each other for absorption like regular, non-chelated minerals can For example, calcium can reduce the absorption of zinc and iron—but not with Albion®
- They do not degrade vitamins like regular minerals can
Included in Oxylent® Men’s are the Albion® chelated minerals Chromium, Magnesium, Manganese, Selenium and Zinc. As was mentioned earlier, due to the various physical and mental demands in life, it is imperative we manage our diets and supplement with vitamins and minerals to avoid deficiencies. For example, the World Health Organization estimates that 17.3% of the global population does not consume adequate zinc in their diets.
