Resveratrol – this is a powerful antioxidant.You can’t stop the clock, but you can slow it down. This chemical, found in the skin of grapes, seems to interact directly with genes that regulate aging.

Multivitamin/mineral – every guy should be on a comprehensive, high qualty multivitamin/mineral. My recommendation for idiot proofing what you should take is the Wellness Essentials for Men packets by Metagenics. These packets contain the Tribulus, EPA-DHA, zinc, quercetin, E, B’s, etc that all of us guys need. Don’t mess around, start taking a good quality supplement like this one offered by Metagenics.
Bonus – Probiotics are healthy bacteria that crowd out the disease-causing bad bacteria in your gut. These address problems caused by antibiotics use, chemotherapy, irritable bowel syndrome, and support healthy immune function.
