Pros: Ensures you get the correct amount of vitamins and minerals daily.
Cons: Smell, taste....needs to be taken with food.
Selecting a multivitamin is the first of many steps if you are choosing to change your current supplement regiment. There are a variety of vitamins and multivitamin supplements marketed to consumers who want to stay healthy. Selecting the right brand could make a big difference when comparison shopping for the vitamin that's right for your diet. General Nutrition Centers (GNC) is a company that has been around for a very long time. GNC is a well known company that sales various nutritional and health related products and supplements. In fact, GNC is one of America's mot reputable and popular names in the supplement industry.
At the beginning of the month I purchased a couple of bottles of GNC Men's Mega Men 90 Tablets bottles for $12.00 dollars a piece with my GNC Gold Card. Since Im a regular shopper at GNC saving 20% with my Gold Card makes sense. GNC Men's Mega Men is a multivitamin dietary supplement. There are key micronutrients combined in this multivitamin that are beneficial for optimum health. On the back of the bottle you will find the supplement facts where the daily value (DV) and amount per serving that satisfy the minimum daily requirements you need in your diet.
GNC Men's Mega Men multivitamins contain almost everything except the kitchen sink when it comes to nutritional vitamins and minerals. For example this particular 90 tablet bottle contains vitamin A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K. It also contains Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folic Acid, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Biotin, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Chromium, Choline, Inositol, Silica, Boron, Lutein, Lycopene, Astaxanthin, Zeaxanthin, Vanadium, Molybdenum Sodium Molybdate, proprietary amino acid blend, and an antioxidant fruit and vegetable blend. Many people know that obtaining enough vitamins and minerals is important but with all the advice and recommendations on the market this can be confusing. If you remember your biology lessons from high school, you know that the ingredients above can lower risk of several illnesses, including some forms of cancer and also help improve your overall immune system.
As a repeat customer, I've taken GNC Men's Mega Men off and on for years without incident, side effects or medical problems. My work schedule, workout regime and time demands means I dont have a lot of time to cook and get all of the vitamins and minerals needed in my daily diet. Taking GNC Men's Mega Men is not only a matter of convenience but this multivitamin complements my weight maintenance strategies. Its not a matter of rocket science either, I simply follow the easy to read directions on the label and take two tables daily with food or a meal replacement drink. There is nothing enjoyable about the taste of this multivitamin alone so its important that you swallow quickly with water or a beverage of your choice.
The only real con I can think of with this particular multivitamin is the smell. However, I've never taken a vitamin, as an adult and it not have some sort of medicine type smell. What's important here is that the smell does not take away from this products effectiveness and the overall result you get from its daily use. GNC markets that this product is "timed release". I dont put a lot of stock into this statement since everyones water and acid-base balance, to bone structure is different. Bottom line, GNC Men's Mega Men's multivitamins fill in the nutritional gaps I miss from my daily food intake.
I highly recommend this product and give it four out of five stars. Men, whether you do yoga, lift weights, circuit train, walk, or ride the bike this multivitamin will work for you. While this particular multivitamins works for me it may not have the same results for everyone since there are so many unique and different dieting and supplement choices on the market. For example if you are 50 and older I recommend GNC Ultra Mega Gold with or without iron. If you are a teenager I would recommend GNC Teen Chewable Mega Teen and of course for women there is a line of Women's Ultra Mega multivitamins.
If you are not totally convinced after reading my review you can sample a 15-day supple for only $8.00 bucks. However, if you are looking for a deal get the Gold Card and purchase your supplies at the beginning of the month it's a lot cheaper.
