Herbalist’s Spotlight: What supplements does our lead practitioner recommend for men?

SunCare2-ArticleEvery day at Pharmaca, our health care practitioners recommend natural remedies for customers from all walks of life. We asked experienced herbalist Matthew B. to share his favorite supplements for men.

 Pure Encapsulations Phyto-ADR

“I recommend this as a restorative tonic. The adoptogens in this vegetarian formulation provide comprehensive support for the adrenal glands, promoting physiological balance and improving resistance to stress. Who doesn’t need that?”

Jarrow Prostate Optimizer

“As men get older, this supplement—which is formulated with natural extracts and necessary fatty acids—becomes important for optimal prostate function and urinary flow.”

Thorne Vitamin D (5,000 IU)

“What I like about this particular Vitamin D supplement is that it’s the right dose and not a dangerous dose. It also has no hidden ingredients like lactose, BHT, BHA, sodium benzoate and sorbic acid, which can be detrimental to people with sensitivities.”

Metagenics Highly Absorbable Magnesium Glycinate

“For muscle tension and insomnia—another common complaint for men—I recommend magnesium glycinate. Not only is it highly absorbable, it’s not dependent on stomach acid for absorption, which means you won’t experience loose stools.”

Natura InflamAway

“Just the thing for weekend warriors and serious athletes. One of my favorites for inflammation, swelling and pain from physical trauma, InflamAway works at the cellular level to assist in the removal of damaging toxins and help balance the body’s inflammatory processes.”
