Men Age Group 18-45 Years Of Age
This can be a challenging time of life for men as it tends to be the time they are most active and working in their careers. At the beginning of this age range, young men have particular nutritional needs in order to continue successfully developing both mentally and physically. This is also a time when many young men are undergoing high levels of emotional and physical stress.
This product contains one of each of the following ingredients:
- Zinc and Copper
- GTF Chromium
- Multi Antiox + Zinc + Q10
- Multi-Vitamins and Minerals
- Essential Fatty Acid complex
It is always important to remember that stress can be a process that creeps up on us subtly. We have the ability to gradually adapt to higher and higher stress levels. However, many of us do not always supply our central nervous systems and brains with the nutrition they need to function at their best.
Without proper nutrition, we may often experience disrupted sleep as we are going through high stress levels.
Optimum nutrition is important to meet the evolving requirements that men go through during these years, in both an emotional and physical sense.
In terms of physical needs, the correct nutrients are required to support physical wellbeing and production of energy. Maintaining good health is much more than purely ensuring an absence of illnesses. During this time it is essential to establish positive nutrition foundations for the future, as men need this to cope with the stresses of daily life, work, and recreation, particularly as they head towards middle age.
This is a stage of life when you can really reap rewards from living well and taking care of your health. Ensuring that you drink enough water is key for maintaining a healthy diet; it is generally accepted that the optimum amount is 2 to 3 litres per day. The human body is made up of almost 60% water and we can lose more than two litres each day just from natural perspiration and kidney functioning. This water must be replaced. As an added benefit, drinking plenty of water can aid weight loss and help you to feel less tired and more alert.
We highly recommend our Detox Formula, a unique formulation designed to cleanse your body and ensure your gut is in optimal condition to absorb the nutrients contained in the supplement. Besides preparing your gut, it will also replenish the level of healthy flora contained in the intestinal tract, boosting overall health and wellbeing.
These effects are especially beneficial in modern life, as we are increasingly exposed to toxins from so many different sources in our daily life. It’s a great idea to precede any new dietary or nutritional program with one of these cleanses, and to repeat the process twice a year.

- To Avoid, low or reduced fat foods, chocolate, white sugar (sucrose), artificial sweeteners, refined carbs, pickled foods, processed foods containing high levels of additives
- Cooking methods, fried or barbecued
- Drink plenty of fresh water. Muscles consist of 70% to 75% water and the body can lose up to 3 litres during exercise, which needs to be replenished. Drinking plenty of water will also reduce fatigue and keep you more alert, as well as assisting with weight loss.
- Keep coffee and caffeinated drinks to a minimum. Avoid drinks containing high amounts of glucose, sucrose, fructose and other additives ending in “ose”, and avoid artificially sweetened drinks whether they are still or fizzy.
- The large bulk of your diet should be composed of vegetables, fruits, grains and organic whole foods. Around 20% of your daily food intake should be raw food like salad and fruit.
- Chew food carefully and thoroughly to maximise the nutrition the body is able to obtain from it.
- Cutting down on red meat, dairy products and refined sugars are all highly advisable, particularly as you get older. On the occasions you do eat meat, lamb and organically-reared chicken are the best choices.
- Pay attention to the ratio of acid-forming foods you are consuming in comparison to alkali-forming ones. To achieve optimum digestive health, the ideal balance is roughly 80% alkali-forming and 20% acid-forming.
- As you are probably well aware, not smoking and maintaining a healthy weight are two of the most important things you can do to maintain good health.
- Emotional health is also important for overall wellbeing. By maintaining a positive frame of mind and working on our self esteem, we are more likely to eat beneficial foods and adopt healthy lifestyle habits.
- When you exercise, do it outdoors in the fresh air as much as you can, and take part in isotonic exercise as this can help make the muscles stronger. If you have no other choice than to exercise indoors in artificial lighting, then keep your sessions to an hour at a time.
- As we tend to be exposed to long periods of artificial lighting in our daily lives, it is beneficial to get out into the sunlight, which can provide a beneficial effect on our entire body and enhance our energy levels. Try not to wear sunglasses for too long as they can block out the helpful rays, and men should not wear sunglasses with pink-tinted lenses.
- Try to find soaps and shampoos which are free from Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, and when purchasing toiletries and cosmetics look for alternatives which are not formulated using long lists of chemicals. As a general guideline, bear in mind that if an ingredient can’t be safely eaten, then it may be advisable not to put it on your skin.
- Commercially produced antiperspirants are best avoided as they contain aluminium, which is absorbed through the skin and can produce undesirable side effects.
- White fish are more beneficial that coastal fish such as mackerel. These should be kept to a minimum in your diet, as they may contain toxic pollutants.
- Consider eating your foods in order of digestion time to aid efficient digestion. First, eat fresh raw foods, then cooked vegetables, then proteins such as meat or fish, then finally your starchy foods.
- If you cook your food in aluminium cookware, be aware that it may reduce water’s ability to be properly used by the body.
- Moderate your alcohol intake as too much alcohol is likely to make negative symptoms worse. Beer, lager and spirits can be detrimental but small amounts of high quality organic wines can contribute to good health, as long as you stick to around one glass per day. After you begin your dietary reform, you should keep beer and lager consumption to the absolute minimum, and avoid drinking spirits altogether for around four months.
- Regular massages can be helpful for health and wellbeing.
- Getting enough sleep is important to maintain healthy production of testosterone in the body.
- A health review with a suitable medical homeopath can be a positive step towards maintaining good health.
- Prolonged periods of exercise may contribute towards infertility in men.
