Men, take your vitamins
Men need vitamins much more than women, and it is no joke. On the contrary, the latest research has proved it.
A monotonous diet and high consumption of meat instead of vegetables make men more vulnerable and fragile. The good news is that multivitamin complexes can partially fill this gap and improve health.
The human body consists of 80 trace elements of the periodic table. A noticeable lack of even one of these elements can lead to metabolic disorders, a weakened immune system and serious health problems.
Vitamins and minerals play a crucial role in longevity. They are vital to the processes of blood cell generation, bone formation, intracellular respiration and tissue formation. 

Recent studies have shown that using multivitamins helps to live longer. The regular intake of vitamin complexes significantly assists in prolonging life.
A recent large and comprehensive French study of middle-aged men (aged 45-60) showed that the overall mortality rate was significantly reduced (by 37%) thanks to the daily intake of supplements containing 100 mg of vitamin C, 30 mg of vitamin E and 100 mg of beta carotene.
Why do men need to take vitamins more than women?
Absorption of the same vitamin complexes by men and women leads to different results. The reason may be found in different nutritional habits. Unlike men, women usually eat more fruit and vegetables, which are rich in vitamins. A nutrient-rich diet may explain why supplements containing relatively low doses of these substances do not have the desired effect on the female body. Men, on the other hand, receive significantly more benefits from taking vitamin supplements because their diet, which usually contains more meat and less fruits and vegetables, does not provide all the necessary nutrients.
Vitamins help the heart
Multivitamin intake is most useful for treating cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. According to another academic study, the consumption of vitamin complexes containing vitamins A, C or E reduces the risk of death by heart disease, stroke or clogged blood vessels by 15%.

Multivitamins in oncology
Patients with lung cancer who take multivitamins have a higher survival rate. People with an aggressive form of cancer can live much longer thanks to the regular intake of vitamin complexes. There is evidence that patients with lung cancer live 4 times longer after surgery if they are taking multivitamins. The average survival rate was 41 months for those taking vitamins, while it was 11 months for those who did not take any.
