NOW Men’s Extreme Sports Multi is one comprehensive supplement designed to meet the extreme needs of today’s athletic men! 

What is NOW Men's Extreme Sports Multi?

NOW Men’s Extreme Sports Multi incorporates the most current research of male health into a multivitamin formula with essential vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements designed specifically for adult men who endure strenuous training. It contains a full array of vitamins designed to complement a strong fitness regime. This multivitamin helps promote muscle growth, energy support, and muscle recovery.

Goal of NOW Men’s Extreme Sports Multi – Men's Virility & Hormonal Support

Includes Targeted Ingredients for Extremely Active Men: 

 

  • Muscle-Building Free Form Amino Acids - As the building blocks of protein, amino acids are vital for repairing and rebuilding muscle tissues that are broken down during intense training.

  • ZMA® - A synergistic combination of Zinc and Magnesium designed to maximize absorption and promote recovery from exercise. Zinc plays a central role in the regulation of cellular growth and tissue repair, as well as the maintenance of a healthy immune system. Magnesium is essential for the maintenance of electrolyte balance, energy production and normal neuromuscular function. Because physical activity can increase the need for these two minerals, ZMA® is the ideal supplement to aid in their replenishment.  

  • Tribulus- Tribulus terrestris has been used for centuries in ancient Greece, India and Africa to support fertility and rejuvenate the body. Recent scientific studies indicate that, although it actually contains no hormones, Tribulus helps to support healthy hormone production and male reproductive health. Tribulus has been used by some of the world's most elite athletes, but may be used by the recreational athlete as well.

  • MCT Oil- MCT's are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage an increase in energy expenditure, while decreasing fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.

  • Panax Ginseng- For more than 2,000 years, the roots of Panax plants have been valued in Chinese herbalism for their invigorating, adaptogenic, and tonic properties.

  • Maca- has been used for centuries by indigenous Peruvians as a food source, as well as increasing stamina and energy. More recent scientific studies have demonstrated that Maca supports hormonal balance for both male and female reproductive health.

  • Aloe Vera Extract – Helps improve bioavailability of other nutrients. making the whole formula more effective

  • Vitamins (13) with Higher levels of B-1, B-2, B-6 (50 mg all 3), Niacin and B-12 for additional energy

  • Plus Value Added Nutrients for Every Male: Saw Palmetto Extract, Lycopene, Plant Sterol Esters, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Green Tea Extract, Lutein, 9 Minerals

Men, Multivitamins, and Heart Disease

Men, Multivitamins, and Heart Disease: Main Image
The men taking a daily multivitamin were no more or less likely to experience a major cardiovascular event
Eating well is important for good health, yet many people feel they are falling short on making the best food choices. Multivitamins are a popular choice for filling in nutritional gaps, yet their exact effects on health remain difficult to pin down. Some studies show benefits, and others find either no benefit or even potential harm with regular multivitamin use. While recent evidence found that a daily multivitamin may lower risk of certain cancers, the same research finds no heart health advantage for men who take a basic, daily multivitamin.

Studying the doctors

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 5% had a previous history of cardiovascular disease. Other factors, including age, height and weight, tobacco and alcohol use, diet, other medications, and family health history 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.

For heart health, no benefit, no harm

The men taking a daily multivitamin were no more or less likely to experience a major cardiovascular event, including heart attack or stroke, or to die due to heart disease or any other cause, compared with the men who took a placebo. The effect of a daily multivitamin did not differ between men with or without a previous history of cardiovascular disease.

Smart choices

It is wise to avoid putting too much faith in any quick-fix approach to long-term health, though food, supplements, and lifestyle decisions may all be used as tools toward that objective.

  • Assess your goals. This same long-term study showed that men taking multivitamins have a lower risk of cancer, so if cancer is your concern, you still may want to consider a multivitamin.
  • Go low. If you take a multivitamin, steer clear of mega-doses unless supervised by a doctor; choose a balanced formula that contains no more than 100% of the daily value of most nutrients.
  • Ask the experts. A person’s diet may get out of balance for a variety of reasons, such as illness, nutrient depletion or malabsorption caused as a side effect of a drug or medical condition, or food intolerances and allergies. If this describes you, discuss your diet with your doctor or dietitian to identify specific nutrients that may be missing.
  • Put it in perspective. 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 are a young male, a young or old female, or if you smoke, are obese, or have additional risk factors for heart disease, these findings may not apply to you.
  • Live wisely. Regardless of whether you take a multivitamin, the best ways to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease include avoiding tobacco, drinking alcohol modestly or not at all, exercising regularly, eating plenty of vegetables and fruit, and maintaining a healthy body weight.
