Dr. Fuhrman’s Men’s Daily Formula +D3 multivitamin and mineral supplement is uniquely designed for men and is formulated to complement a healthful diet and active lifestyle. Men’s Daily Formula +D3 contains adequate amounts of essential nutrients that may be lacking, even in a healthful diet, yet excludes any ingredients that have the potential to cause harm. Dr. Fuhrman is adamant about stopping the use of dangerous supplements. For example, several long-term scientific studies have demonstrated increased risks of cancer or premature death from the use of supplemental folic acid and Vitamin A. Men’s Daily Formula +D3 excludes potentially harmful ingredients, such as vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin E, folic acid, and copper.
Since Vitamin D has recently emerged as a crucial nutrient for many facets of health, and with so many found to be deficient, Men’s Daily Formula +D3 includes 2000 IU of vegan vitamin D3 to ensure adequate intake without the need for additional supplementation. Older adults and those who follow a vegan or near-vegan diet require supplemental vitamin B12. Dr. Fuhrman’s multivitamin and mineral supplements supply more than the RDI for B12, to correct for inefficient absorption. We can only absorb a very small amount each time we ingest a B12-containing food or supplement. Men’s Daily Formula +D3 contains 200 mcg B12 in to help ensure adequate vitamin B12 levels. Men’s Daily Formula +D3 has other unique ingredients, based on the latest scientific research, to best support men’s health. Pomegranate, reishi mushroom, and cranberry extracts are added as they may support prostate health. It contains tomato extract since tomatoes are associated with prostate health in observational studies as well as Vitamin K2, absent in plant-based foods, yet helpful for bone health and cardiovascular health. Also included, to support men with active lifestyles, is taurine, an amino acid that is depleted during heavy exercise and may be low in people who follow a plant-based diet.
