Supplements, although not as important as a proper diet or exercise when it comes to taking back your health, play a big part in combating some of the age-related issues that make it more difficult for guys in their 40’s, 50’s and beyond to maintain vibrant health.

In this video, you’ll discover the specific supplements, why they’re so important, and some of our top product recommendations. So, whether you’re looking to lose weight or just feel more energetic & youthful, here are 6 of the best supplements for men over 40.

*1 – Multivitamins & Vitamin B12 (1:10)

As you age, your ability to absorb and utilize vitamins decreases. This is due to a range of factors, including a reduction in stomach acid and depletion in the quality of soil used in mass farming. Using a Multivitamin for men is an insurance policy to ensure you get enough vitamins into your body each day, so you absorb what you need daily to ensure optimal health.

Recommended Multivitamin: Maximum Vibrance
B12 Dosage: 2.4mcg

*2 – Vitamin D3 (2:51)

Although many multivitamins contain vitamin D3, there is a lot of research that proves the positive benefits of it but only at the optimum levels. Often, these levels are not met by the quantity contained in multivitamins. Likewise, if you live in an area above 37 degrees latitude, you’re not in a place where your skin can synthesize vitamin D3 from the sun, which is nature’s way of providing this very important vitamin to us.

Vitamin D3 helps you grow strong bones, and has also been linked to increases in metabolism (making it one of the best supplements for weight loss), strengthening of your immune system, and improving testosterone levels, making it one of the best supplements for men of all ages.

Recommended brand: Sports Research
Dosage: Varies by product

*3 – Fish Oil (4:12)

Fish oil is an important supplement for people of all ages, but as you get into your 40’s, 50’s and 60’s, it’s ESSENTIAL. Fish oil supplements contain Omega 3 fatty acids, which helps to keep our heart and brain healthy and functioning optimally.

One of the best things that fish oil helps with though, is that it gets utilized into the outer layer of every cell in your body. The positive effects of this include better hormone signaling (meaning better hormonal balance), and generally optimal function of what each cell does within our bodies.

Recommended brand: Nordic Naturals
Dosage: Varies by product

*4 – Magnesium (5:41)

No matter what age you are, the majority of people are deficient in magnesium. Magnesium helps your cardiovascular system and helps to decrease stress on your heart by relaxing arteries and blood vessels. It also helps to improve recovery time after intense exercise.

Recommended brand: Calm Magnesium Powder
Dosage: Varies by product – Take at night

*5 – Turmeric / Curcumin (7:06)

Turmeric is becoming more widely known now as a helpful supplement as well as a cooking spice. The curcuminoids that are a constituent part of turmeric powder are natural anti-inflammatories. Reducing inflammation throughout your entire body is a massive plus to your health, especially when you consider that chronic inflammation is a root cause of almost every disease.

Recommended brand: Life Extension Super Curcumin
Dosage: Varies by product

*6 – Creatine Monohydrate (8:40)

You may have heard of the benefits of creatine as one of the best supplements for muscle growth or to improve athletic performance. It does help with that, but the most important reason for you to take creatine monohydrate as a supplement is to help stop age-related muscle loss (sarcopenia), even if you’re not exercising.

Creatine monohydrate has also been research-proven to help in the prevention of age-related memory decline. So, it’s not only good for your body, but also your brain too.

Recommended brand: Optimum Nutrition
Dosage: 5g daily either with breakfast or in a post-workout shake.

Stressed out over the way light is turned out. Looking forward to following you guys on this channel. Thank you for doing what you do. I feel like there’s a little hope. Up until 10 years ago I was in excellent shape. Stay fit lifting weights my whole life. Looking forward to being old and in shape. Thanks again God bless

    • B J

      Informative video. Thank you!

      Except for the B12, no dosage range given for the other supplements?

    • Albert Nothnagel

      I’ve been taking all these for awhile. I’m 53 and can exercise everyday. Weights, mountain biking. These supplements work. Just make sure to take them everyday.

      • Maxxx Modelz

        I’ve found especially the Creatine and D3 are extremely effective for me. My workout performance really increased dramatically and noticeably very soon after taking creatine mono.

    • hobbiehobb

      This was helpful, after 30 years on not watching what I eat and no exercise I’ve gotten back to focusing on my health. 3 weeks in and already seeing and feeling result. Decreased waistline, fewer aches, better sleep and more energy throughout the day.

      • Jim Templeton

        Im 50 had ptsd a stroke in my 20s due to renal failure and after 3 months in hosp came out ok. But mental health depression obv left me unable to function healthy life but im 50 started with over 50 a to z vits and have got into buying and trying live healthy.

    • Charles Anderson

      The creatine info was extremely helpful to convince my wife why it is important to take to maintain muscle at my age of 57

    • Over 40 Squad

      Super useful advice, thanks Anthony! Approaching mid-40’s now, the concern for me is getting enough vitamins and minerals each day. Your point about *magnesium and heart health really struck a chord* , so will be making sure I get the right dosages for sure. Thanks again!

      • Jim Templeton

        Sounds so good

    • SuperMispi

      Thank you for your scientifically supported advice.

    • Michael T. Farm

      Dr. Balduzzi, thanks for this video. I just turned 20 and this is exactly the sort of guidance I was looking for. I have an important question, however. Is your recommendation for 2.4 mg of B12 correct? I did some additional reading and all sources I find recommend doses in micrograms. Thanks.

      • Fit Father Project - Fitness For Busy Fathers

        Hey Nathan, thanks for writing in brother and great question. You are absolutely right and thank you for catching that. We will submit that for an update ASAP. 2.4mcg is what to shoot for. Thanks again!

    • Runs With Knives

      I am a 51 year old with congestive heart failure, I have a question about creatine. If you retain water because of the condition of your heart, is it safe to take as you mentioned in another video it helps your muscles retain water?

      • Fit Father Project - Fitness For Busy Fathers

        Hey RWK, thanks for writing in brother. There is some research that shows the potential benefit of using creatine with congestive heart failure==> However, we always recommend consulting with your doctor before taking any supplement, especially if there are heart issues at hand.

    • Stephen Williamson

      Great video and very informative!
      Just one thing, what variant of magnesium do you recommend?

      • Fit Father Project - Fitness For Busy Fathers

        Hey Stephen, thanks for writing in and great question. We would recommend going with a supplement that was either Magnesium Citrate, L-threonate, or Glycinate. Citrate is probably the most bioavailble and therefore absorbed the best. L-threonate and Glycinate are also absorbed well and may come with more calming properties. So you can’t go wrong with any of those three!

        @Fit Father Project – Fitness For Busy Fathers
        Hi team,
        Thanks for getting back to me.
        Citrate seems to be getting a bad write up in most of the research I’ve been doing and is mostly seen as a laxitive type supplement!?
        Also is glycinate also known as chelated?

      • Fit Father Project - Fitness For Busy Fathers

        Hey Stephen, Malate is another form that is absorbed well but can come without the laxative effect. Glycinate is a type of amino acid to make mineral chelated magnesium, which is another version to with easier absorption as well.

        You’re very welcome 🙏

    • Kirby road

      I take most of these, but I want to look into the tumeric as that one sounds interesting. I’d also add zinc, boron, and ashwandha to your list as us older guys need the test boost and these are needed for that.

    • raf al

      Very good and informative video, two things I will skip are Magnesium and b12 by itself. For the very first week, I felt very energetic after taking them, but after week 2, I was feeling very fatigue and exhausted, so I discontinue to take them and it took all the tiredness out. is there a reason that b12/ Magnesium would cause such things like tiredness/sloppy/sleepy, I mean I could not find any video or literature on that. Thanks

      • Mark Silva

        What if you took them before going to bed?
