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."Heart health is a big concern for many men, and protecting your heart is one of the best things you can do to live well. I recommend Mega Men® Heart because it provides a full range of vitamins and minerals, plus phytosterols to help lower cholesterol."

MEGA MEN® HEART
Heart Health
  • Features phytosterols that lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. These natural compounds found in fruits, vegetables and whole grain products work by blocking cholesterol absorption. Scientific research shows that a minimum of 400 mg per serving of free phytosterols taken twice a day with meals for a daily total of at least 800 mg, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart diease. Each serving of Mega Men® Heart supplies 800 mg of phytosterols.
  • Supplies Heart Protection Blend with L-arginie, L-carnitine, policosanol and CoQ-10 to support a healthy heart and maintain blood vessel tone.
  • Includes B-vitamins that play a vital role in the maintenance of normal homocysteine levels. Homocysteine levels are a recognized marker for cardiovascular health.
  • Contains calcium and folic acid which may help maintain healthy blood pressure already within normal range. Also supplies lycopene to support cardiovascular health.
Advanced Nutritional Support
    Combines a B-vitamin complex that is essential for carbohydrate metabolism and energy production with key minerals such as copper which is involved in the production of cellular energy and chromium that plays an important role in normal glucose utilization.
  • Includes 1,6000 IU of vitamin D-3. Emerging research suggests that adequate daily vitamin D intake may play a role in supporting colon and immune health.

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 heard about the benefits of beta-sistosterol, so I asked a salesman in GNC about it. He spent a lot of time with me, asked a lot of pertinent questions and determined that this product would help lower my blood pressure. I take 3/day, and it did lower it enough to satisfy my doctor and I stopped taking meds. But after a while my blood pressure crept up again, even though I continue to take this product--I'm not sure why. I still think it's better than taking meds.

              Overall, I think this is a very good multivitamin, especially those concerned with cardiovascular health. You do need to take 3/day, and of course, its best to space those out as evenly as possible. Only complaint, and it's a minor one, is that the pill does have a SLIGHTLY negative smell and taste, but not too bad.
