Frank J. Costa, M.D., an acclaimed urological surgeon and men's health expert, is part of the GNC Medical Advisory Board.
One of "America's Top Physicians," Dr. Costa lectures nationally and internationally on men's health topics. Dr. Costa is regularly featured in television, radio and newspaper interviews and has published articles in both professional journals and popular magazines."Many men - even if they try to make healthy food choices - aren't getting the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients their bodies need for optimal health. Mega Men® Maximum Nutrition includes phytosterols, protein, fiber and other beneficial nutrients. It's the best men's multivitamin available."

MEGA MEN® MAXIMUM NUTRITION
GNC Mega Men® Maximum Nutrition is more than just a multivitamin, it features the benefits of our Mega Men® multivitamin plus 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and additional nutrients like essential fatty acids and phytosterols.

Heart and Cholesterol Support
  • Contains 2 grams of heart-healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
  • Supplies phytosterols - foods containing at least 400 mg per serving of free phytosterols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 800 mg, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving provides 800 mg of free phytosterols.
  • Combines vitamins B-6, B-12 and folic acid that may play a role in the maintenance of normal homocysteine levels, important for cardiovascular health.*

Prostate and Sexual Health
  • Features lycopene, an antioxidant that supports prostate health.*
  • Combines zinc that is required for normal reproductive function and L-arginine, a building block of nitric oxide that helps maintain blood vessel tone and plays a role in sexual health.*
Energy Production
  • Supplies B-vitamins that are essential for carbohydrate metabolism and energy production.*
  • Contains key minerals such as zinc and chromium that are involved in carbohydrate metabolism and glucose utilization.*
Digestive Support
  • Includes 5 grams of dietary fiber. Fiber serves as a bulk forming agent and encourages colon health by helping to speed food throughout the digestive system.* Fiber also plays an important role in cleansing.*
Eye Health
  • Contains vitamin A, astaxanthin, zeaxanthin and lutein for eye health and normal vision.*
Immune Protection
  • Features vitamin C and zinc to boost your body's natural immune response.*

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study 112 healthy volunteers, subjects taking the GNC vitamin and mineral blend in this product for six weeks experienced statistically significant improvements in markers of B vitamin and antioxidant status, as well as improvements in SF-36 Vitality and Mental Health scores compared to those taking a placebo.

Health Notes

Multivitamins May Protect Men Against Cancer

Multivitamins May Protect Men Against Cancer
Multivitamins May Protect Men Against?Cancer?
: Main Image
Men taking the multivitamin were diagnosed with 8% fewer cancers overall
Many Westerners are concerned that they may not be getting all the nutrients they need everyday for optimal health, which has made multivitamins a popular choice for many people. Study results on multivitamins often conflict, with some showing benefits, and others finding either no benefit or even potential harm. Now, much-anticipated results from a large, randomized, controlled trial of multivitamins have been released, and this one falls on the side of benefit, showing a modest but significant decrease in cancer occurrence for men who take a basic, daily multivitamin.

The ideal study population

Researchers randomly selected 14,641 male physicians to receive a daily multivitamin-mineral supplement or placebo for approximately 11 years. The physicians were 50 years or older, and 9% had a previous history of cancer. Other factors, including age, height and weight, tobacco and alcohol use, diet, other medications, and family history of cancer were similar in the supplement and placebo groups.

The multivitamin provided around 100% of the daily value for most essential vitamins and minerals, with a few exceptions. It contained no iron, and for vitamins E and B12, the multivitamin provided significantly more than 100% of the daily value. For vitamin K, biotin, calcium, magnesium, and chromium, it provided significantly less than 100%. The supplement contained some additional nutrients, including lutein and lycopene.

Moderate multivitamin, less total cancer

Men taking the multivitamin were diagnosed with 8% fewer cancers overall than men in the placebo group.

There were no significant differences between the supplement and placebo groups in terms of specific cancer types, such as prostate and colorectal cancers. There were no significant differences in the risk of death due to cancer between the two groups.

Finding balance

The study multivitamin was similar to "common," moderate-dose products available in any supermarket or pharmacy. Given that past studies have suggested multivitamins may increase cancer risk, these findings are reassuring. However, according to lead study author Dr. J. Michael Gaziano, "It would be a big mistake for people to go out and take a multivitamin instead of quitting smoking or doing other things that we have a higher suspicion play a bigger role, like eating a good diet and getting exercise."

Keep this in mind as you consider our tips on creating your own cancer risk reduction plan:

  • Be modest. Steer clear of mega-doses, and follow the American Cancer Society's advice: eat a balanced diet, and if you take a supplement, choose a balanced multivitamin that contains no more than 100% of the daily value of most nutrients.
  • Seek the experts. A person's diet may get out of balance for a variety of reasons, such as illness, nutrient depletion or malabsorption caused by a drug, medical condition, food intolerance, or allergy. If this describes you, discuss your diet with your doctor or dietitian to identify specific nutrients that may be missing.
  • Consider context. The study population was healthy, older males, most of whom don't smoke, and many of whom eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. If you smoke, are obese, or have additional risk factors for cancer, heart disease, or other chronic disease, these findings may not apply to you.
  • Get bang for your buck. Regardless of whether you take a multivitamin, you can never go wrong by adopting basic cancer prevention strategies: avoid tobacco, drink alcohol modestly or not at all, move regularly, eat plenty of vegetables and fruit, use sunscreen consistently, and maintain a healthy body weight.

      I have been resenting using a multivitamin for quite some time but got a great deal on this at my local GNC so I thought i'd give it a shot. I have only been using it for 2 days and it's great, especially the flavor. I will definitely be getting some more of this after I run out!

        Works great for me. I take it religiously every morning, I mix mine with 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of plain nonfat greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon of Superfruit blend powder, 2 cups of organic baby kale, 1 cup of organic baby carrots, 1 banana, 2 cups of frozen fruit (your choice), 1/3 cup of Kind Healthy Grains (or your choice of granola mix) and 2 tablespoons of almond butter (homemade) or 2 handfuls of almonds. Mix it all together in my Vitamix blender and I've got a great tasting power packed super smoothie with about 50g of protein to start my day. I've been taking it for over 6 months now and feel great, I no longer drink coffee in the morning (or at all for that matter) and feel more energetic than ever.

            Comments about GNC Mega Men® Maximum Nutrition - Vanilla Bean:

            I just finished the first can, and don't feel any real difference as opposed to the GNC Energy multivitamins(I swear by), but I don't really take it as suggested. I actually mix one scoop of vanilla with 1-2 scoops of my ProAmp 60 strawberry mix. This tastes great and helps to overcome the sweetener taste from the vanilla. I'm guessing it is to overcome the otherwise vitamin-e taste.
            I do still use some vitamin packs at times, but got this for its overall coverage for everything all the other vitapaks are missing(it does energy, prostate, and cardiac-see phytosterols).
            I recently had my cholesterol rechecked, and my HDL(good cholesterol) came up about 10 points to 58, and my cholesterol ratio, which was at 6(very bad), is now at 3.4(very good). This may be in part to the Maximum Nutrition, or the GNC Heart vitamins I take at night, when I remember, or the extra time I've spent in the gym, or a combination of all of the above. I don't really do much else, no statins, or Niacin(bad flushing), and not the best with diet, even though I am a RN. Take this review for what it's worth.

            Just started taking this - will update this after a month or so with more reviews....but beware - although the vanilla taste is good, it is very sweet and leaves a sweetener taste in your mouth for a long time. Advice to GNC - reduce the sucralose!

              Ok I'm a 28 year old and tried this in replace of "GNC Myoplex" this works a bit better for me so now I'm hooked! I only like the vanilla, and most people use water to mix with, but i don't like the texture or taste with the water so i use 1% low-fat milk, if you have not tried using mike yet do so it tasted soooo much better. Plus when you use mike you get additional Vitamin D, Calcium which is good for your bones! and only adds 140 cals so 230 total cals if your counting that type of thing, But bottom line a great product for a great price. I take it once a day, when I wake up, but a must try Works for me!

                  I use this product once a day. I mainly take it a night before I go to bed. I figure nighttime is the best time since that is when the body is recovering. This product is great. I was defcient in a lot of key nutritents and this delivered them to me fast and with superior absorbtion. I Went back to the doctor and I was healthier than ever. It even helped me get rid of problems I was having that doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. It probably had something to do with my defciency problem. Anyhow this product seems to have taken care of it just fine. A lot of folks now a days are lacking nutrition and just dont know it. This fills in all the gaps and some. Worth every penny if you ask me.
