There seems to be a common, albeit mistaken, cultural understanding that some of the characteristics that define men (strong, tough, and masculine) must run counter to the idea of wellness. At Dr. Thornburg Wellness, we couldn’t disagree more. Men’s health is just as important as women’s and children’s, and is hardly defined by a few qualities. Rather, we believe that wellness for men must consider a variety of factors, such as stress management, sleep cycles, testosterone levels, weight loss, cardiovascular health, exercise, prostate health, and virility. Today we’ll take a look at many of the wonderful products out there that can holistically support the wide range a man’s wellbeing, all by natural means.
Testosterone, a hormone in men, is responsible for maintaining sex drive, as well as ensuring muscle and bone strength. Testosterone levels peak during early adulthood, but begin to drop as an individual ages. Though not always, low testosterone levels have been linked to ailments such as depression, osteoporosis, obesity, and heart disease.
Supplementing with zinc can help raise and maintain testosterone levels. One study researched the effects of a magnesium and zinc supplement. It found that men who received 30 milligrams of zinc per day showed increased levels of free testosterone in their bodies. Zinc is widely known as a great natural sex supplement for men.
Omega 3/Fish Oil
Omega 3s are anti-inflammatory fatty acids that can be protective of the heart, brain, eyes and blood vessels. They help to protect the brain from the damaging side-effects of stress and help to reduce the risk of heart disease if supplemented with regularly. They can also prove beneficial to the prostate by protecting it against cancer, help maintain blood sugar levels, support the healthy growth of skin and hair, and can regulate weight by supporting proper metabolism functioning. Our fish oil supplement is rich with Omega 3s, great for any man looking to boost their wellness.
Antioxidants, like vitamins A, C, E, are known for their role in managing and destroying harmful free radicals, molecules known for their link to a variety of cancers. Antioxidants are essential for anti-aging as they can prevent cellular damage that occurs from exposure to the sun, exercise, and stress. They are also linked to proper regulation of blood pressure, liver support, protection of blood vessels throughout the body, and some studies even indicate they can help boost male libido. Multivitamins are a great way to get the right amount of antioxidants daily.
Vitamin D has been proven to moderate blood sugar levels, improve serotonin levels, enhance the immune system, control appetite, support skeletal strength and muscle development via calcium absorption, and even help with fat loss. It has also been linked with higher testosterone levels and increased virility. While there are few better ways to get a good dose of Vitamin D than spending some time in the sun, our Vitamin D drops are a fantastic alternative.
Protein is an important part of every man’s diet. It helps to support muscle structure and development and is widely understood to stimulate weight loss for those struggling with obesity. Proteins, such as whey, force the body to burn energy to digest them and can help increase the metabolism rate in the body, all helping to make protein powder one of the best natural weight loss supplements for men.
While often marketed to women, men can also benefit from collagen, an essential structural protein that's found in our skin and connective tissues. Collagen powders or pills for men have a variety of benefits, from boosting athletic performance to thickening beard growth to building muscles and bones.
