An Eye-Opening Look at Men's Nutritional Concerns

Most men believe that good nutrition is a major contributer to good health. But where should this nutrition come from? A well-balanced diet? Daily supplements? We wanted to get the lowdown on men's nutritional concerns and how (and why) they take supplements, so our most recent online survey focused on just these issues. We received some pretty eye-opening results:

72% take a supplement daily, and 9% take four or more kinds a day.

Enthusiastic supporters and nutritional skeptics appear to be evenly divided: Approximately 30% have taken a supplement for more than five years and 30% do not take a supplement at all.

Receiving nutrients lacking from their diets is the number one reason for taking a supplement. Improving health conditions (such as heart disease) and protecting against future illness follow close behind.

Less than 1% takes a supplement for mental well-being.

35% believe childhood is the best time to begin taking a supplement.

But what do you think about all this attention being focused on nutrition? Do you think more importance should be placed on it? Or is it just another fitness fad?

Scuba Divers & Antioxidants

In a new study released by the Journal of Physiology, antioxidant Vitamins E and C appear to help diminish cardiovascular problems resulting from scuba dives. By administering Vitamins E and C to divers before a dive, a team of researchers from the University of Split School of Medicine (Croatia) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway) observed that the antioxidants had a positive effect on the divers' endothelial function when they engaged in a moderate scuba dive of 30 meters for half an hour.

In addition to this new benefit for professional and recreational scuba divers, antioxidants have also been praised in numerous clinical studies and referenced in such publications as The New England Journal of Medicine for their protective capabilities against free radical damage. This damage can often lead to problems associated with aging, such as heart disease, skin cell deterioration and cellular collapse. By binding to free radicals, antioxidants can neutralize them before they cause damage to surrounding cells. This is the first study to be released that connects antioxidant benefits to the area of scuba diving.

To support antioxidant functions overall, MenScience offers
Advanced Antioxidants Daily Supplement. While the product provides Vitamins C and E, it also contains a highly-effective combination of both newly-developed substances such as Astaxanthin, Pycnogenol, Tocotrienol and Zeaxanthin, and more active forms of traditional, time-tested components such as Lutein and Lycopene. These ingredients work together to strengthen protection against free-radical damage, as well as support cellular repair.

While the benefits of antioxidants are still being researched and tested, this new study focusing on improved health for divers could have a tangible impact on the diving community throughout the world.
