Full Answer

Men do well on three specific supplements, namely magnesium, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids. Most multivitamins contain vitamin D and magnesium, but it's best to check the label before purchasing, advises WebMD. The body needs magnesium for more than 350 enzymatic functions, and the mineral regulates functions including sleep cycles, blood pressure and metabolism, according to cardiologist Dennis Goodman, cited in Men's Journal. Vitamin D supports the immune system and improves calcium absorption, while people take omega-3 to promote heart health, and to boost mood and brain function.

The multivitamins listed above do not contain omega-3 fatty acids, but these brands all sell omega-3 preparations separately. Kirkland Signature Natural Fish Oil 1000, Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, and The Vitamin Shoppe Omega 3 Fish Oil Liquid are the recommendations from Men's Journal.
