Top 5 Men's Health Supplements

top 5 men's health review

Men today face increasing demands on their time, attention, energy, and focus. In addition, we live in a society that values hard, long hours at work, but also spending time with family, maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle, and squeezing a vacation in if you can. For those of us who have exited the workforce officially (I don’t like the word “retired”) we find that health concerns become an increasing part of our lives. As a result, men face increasing risk of developing a state of mood depression and a host of illnesses — all of which can depress a man’s libido and performance.

Thankfully, modern medicine has been able to identify some of the culprits that make men feel the most tired, sap their libido, and reduce their physical performance — whether at work or in the bedroom. While men are usually a little bit embarrassed to talk about these things, they have a profound impact on a man’s quality of life. Consequently, men tend to suffer through these problems in silence and the problems usually become far worse before they find help.

It seems like a problem so common and so devastating to men’s lives would get more attention and be easier to address. However, since it is not, we have decided to commit a full article to discussing it in plain terms.

Here, we’ll take a look at the most noteworthy problems, their solutions, and some helpful supplements that can help turn things around.

 

The Problem

men's health review top 5 supplement

See that car? That’s you. Your body is a finely tuned machine built for high performance.

 

But you don’t feel that way, do you? Study after study has shown that the average man — even younger men — struggle with fatigue, decreased mental performance, fading or decreased libido, and as a result sexual dysfunction (aka erectile dysfunction or impotence). None of us would willingly sign up for that experience! In addition, problems with sexual performance can lead to relationship difficulties, stress, and decrease in self-confidence… creating a downward spiral.

So what to do?

The good news is that nearly all of these symptoms can be addressed by finding their underlying cause.

Let's take a look at the common causes of this male malaise:

  1. Heart disease and peripheral vascular disease
  2. Obesity / overweight
  3. Anxiety/Depression/Stress
  4. Diabetes
  5. High blood pressure
  6. Smoking (tobacco)
  7. Some prescription medications
  8. Alcohol abuse or abuse of other substances
  9. Sleep disorders
  10. Other more rare conditions like Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and Peyronie’s Disease
That’s a long list. Furthermore, the most common struggles are with being overweight/out of shape and its many associated problems (diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or peripheral vascular disease), followed by tobacco use, over use of alcohol, and sleep disorders. 

The Solution(s)

How do we get back to feeling like the finely tuned sports car? 

Well, we’ve already seen what some of the causes are, so let’s get to what can be done.

  1. Start a regular exercise routine
  2. Eat healthier
  3. See a physician to get help with any underlying medical conditions – the physician may prescribe some medications, but you can’t skip #1 and #2.
That’s a much shorter list… but there is a good reason why so many men don’t do any of these things. 
 
They don’t want to.
 
That’s where using dietary supplements can come in! These are natural substances that aren’t as FDA regulated – which means you can get them online or in stores without a prescription. Below I have a list of my Top 5 supplements to help you get started!

Dr. Nick's Top 5 Men's Health Supplements

#1
  • Boost XT 9.6/10
  • Ingredient Safety   5/5
  • Projected Effectiveness   4.75/5
  • Value   5/5
  • Return Policy   4.8/5
  • Customer Satisfaction   4.5/5
  • Overall Rating   4.8/5

Boost XT has the active ingredients you want -- and in higher amounts. Other brands use more ingredients, many of which have little to no effect at all. Boost XT was formulated by a physician who didn't want to add ingredients that would pass right through without helping. What you get is a potent formula with very few risks.

The customer support was very helpful and their 90 day, risk free money back guarantee was best-in-class! In addition, they don't require you to sign up for "auto-billing" or buy 3 or 6 months at a time... although you have that option.

  • Noxitril 7.6/10
  • Ingredient Safety   4.1/5
  • Projected Effectiveness   4.4/5
  • Value   3.2/5
  • Return Policy   3.5/5
  • Customer Satisfaction   3.5/5
  • Overall Rating   3.8/5

Noxitril is a widely marketed product that came in second because it has some ingredients which may not have the desired effect and the cost was considerably more. There are a large group of people who have tried this product and some of the reviews reveal that it can underperform - especially at this price point. There is a 30 day money back guarantee for your first purchase.

You should also know that "Noxitril" used to be called "Vylexia," and apparently the company just switched names and ran with the same website and ads out of the gate. They've cleaned up their online presence so it is now harder to find this out, but this is just a previously sold and now re-branded product. I wonder why it didn't sell so well the first time...

  • Nugenix 6.6/10
  • Ingredient Safety   4.1/5
  • Projected Effectiveness   3.8/5
  • Value   3.5/5
  • Return Policy   3.1/5
  • Customer Satisfaction   3.2/5
  • Overall Rating   3.3/5

Nugenix, like Noxitril, has an extensive marketing campaign. For best results, they suggest 6 weeks of continuous use and they use an "auto-ship" program that bills you monthly unless you cancel. They offer a 14 day trial, but no money back guarantee.

While I don't recommend the following supplements, they seem to be popular:

  • Ageless MALE MAX 6.4/10
  • Ingredient Safety   3.6/5
  • Projected Effectiveness   3.4/5
  • Value   3.3/5
  • Return Policy   3.1/5
  • Customer Satisfaction   3.2/5
  • Overall Rating   3.2/5

Ageless Male has a long, long list of ingredients. Most of them are thought to be helpful, but many of them are questionable... especially at low doses. They do offer a 30 day money back guarantee and their prices are slightly lower than either Noxitril or Nugenix, but their customer satisfaction rating was also slightly lower.

  • Zyrexin 6.0/10
  • Ingredient Safety   3.5/5
  • Projected Effectiveness   2.6/5
  • Value   3.0/5
  • Return Policy   2.9/5
  • Customer Satisfaction   2.5/5
  • Overall Rating   3.0/5

Zyrexin. This is available at drug stores across the US. Right on the bottle it claims to be the "world's strongest sexual enhancer." CLAIMS. It has a moderate number of ingredients, some of which made my "avoid" list like Yohimbine. There is no money back guarantee and the pills run about $2 a piece, which is actually at the high end for this list.

Dr. Nick has been practicing medicine for over 10 years. After finishing his MD he began his residency in Laboratory Medicine where he gained first hand knowledge of some of the effects of dietary supplements. Dr. Nick now specializes in gastrointestinal health. Over the years of vigorous study and in-depth experimenting with a variety of dietary supplements Dr. Nick found that there are few sources of clear, evidence-backed, honest information about what the supplements can help achieve - and what they cannot. There are many companies out there selling promises without providing results.

Our team's goal is to educate the general public and do our part to help everyone improve their health. The industry needed an honest, educated practitioner to help reveal the real benefits of specific dietary supplements. In order to get the best effects without wasting time and money, a proper understanding of chemistry and human physiology are critically important. Since not everyone has the time to master these topics, Dr. Nick hopes to help clarify otherwise complicated topics and give the best, clear, evidence-backed input to help each person select the most appropriate supplements. The companies selling these formulas don't often reveal the true Pros and Cons of each supplement and educating the general public about these ingredients will go a long way towards achieving better health.
