Men’s Health: The four main concerns

Men’s Health: The four main concerns

This week marks Men’s Health Week and we're here to talk about something crucial. It's time to challenge the old stereotypes and start open conversations about the issues men face, from mental health struggles to physical wellbeing.

Many men hesitate to seek medical support or visit the doctor regularly, often due to the stigma surrounding men's health issues. This reluctance can lead to the underdiagnosis and progression of serious health conditions. Research shows that men are less likely than women to attend regular health check-ups and are more likely to ignore symptoms of illness. During Men's Health Week, it's crucial to break this cycle by raising awareness about the importance of proactive health management.

Here are four main health concerns that significantly impact men and practical tips for managing them.

1. Heart disease

    Heart disease was found to be one of the leading causes of death among men, often stemming from lifestyle factors such as poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. It can manifest as conditions like coronary artery disease, heart attacks and hypertension.

    Our tips for prevention:

    • Exercise regularly: Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week.
    • Healthy diet: Focus on a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Limit intake of processed foods, saturated fats and sugar.
    • Regular check-ups: Monitor blood pressure, cholesterol levels and glucose levels regularly.
    • Avoid smoking: Seek support to quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption.

    2. Prostate health

      Prostate health is a significant concern as men age, with conditions such as prostate cancer. An enlarged prostate can cause urinary problems and affect quality of life. Prostate cancer is particularly prevalent, making regular screenings crucial. Continue reading about the symptoms.

      Our tips for prevention:

      • Regular screenings: Men over 50 should discuss prostate cancer screenings with their doctor. Those with a family history of prostate cancer should consider earlier screenings.
      • Diet and exercise: A diet high in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats, along with regular physical activity, can promote prostate health.
      • Enlarged prostate treatment: Treatments for an enlarged prostate include medications, lifestyle changes and sometimes surgery. Consult with a healthcare provider for the best approach.
      • Explore supportive supplements like Men’s ProMulti: An advanced, all-in-one formula to support the changing health needs of men over the age of 45. It is specially formulated to support prostate health, testosterone health, daily vitality and wellbeing.

        3. Mental health

          Mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and stress, are often underreported among men due to societal stigma. However, mental health is just as important as physical health. Low testosterone in men can also contribute to mental health issues and affect overall wellbeing. You may be interested in reading our latest stress research.
