Men sometimes need to take a daily multivitamin, though Consumersearch.com says that they shouldn't get more than 8 mg (0.12 grains) of iron a day and can get that through their diet. Fortunately, men can find plenty of multivitamins on the market that don't contain iron and some that do. The important thing is how effective the multivitamin is overall while containing other vitamins. A number of good products exist that provide just about all vitamin needs.
GNC Mega Men Multivitamin
One-a-Day Men's Health Formula
This iron-free multivitamin provides every needed vitamin, plus 150 per cent of selenium, which Consumersearch says may help prevent prostate cancer. That claim also has its controversies. Consumersearch says a study was conducted in recent years on selenium to see whether it really did help prevent prostate cancer. The study ended early with no evidence it did help the prostate, plus the fear that too much selenium can cause diabetes. In 2009, the Center for Science in the Public Interest said they would eventually sue Bayer over this multivitamin's selenium claims. Nevertheless, Consumersearch still indicates it as one of the most popular and best-selling multivitamins in the country.
