Men require more of some nutrients and less of others, compared to women. A daily multivitamin can help bridge that gap and promote overall wellness. Multivitamins are supplements that contain many different vitamins and minerals, sometimes alongside other ingredients.
In one study, men who took a multivitamin were 43 percent less likely to have a heart attack or stroke after 20 years than those that did not. In another, there was an 18 percent reduction in non-prostate cancers among men who took a multivitamin. Multivitamins have also been studied for several other purposes, including brain function, eye health and heart health.
