Recent research has shown that men are missing out on some vital nutrients that are very important for their overall health. Typically, men are less likely to see a doctor when they get a sign of bothersome health symptoms. You know the rules of living healthily – eat a balanced diet, get enough rest, exercise regularly, and so on – but the question is, “do you even keep to all of these?” A report from the International Food Council Foundation claims that the majority of men know the importance of a change in their diet can bring to their overall health, but very few go through with this change. The truth is, you can get almost all the nutrients you need, only if you can pay close attention. But sadly, not all men pay attention, and nutrition needs usually vary with age. For instance, men who are over 70 years need more vitamin D than those in their mid-30s, because they do not get enough of it, and some don’t even get it. In reality, men of all ages are deficient in almost every nutritional category, and you need to eat diets that are rich in whole grains, healthy oils, fruits, and vegetables to have healthy nutrition.
