Men's Health

With Father’s Day approaching it’s important to remind the men in our lives to look after their health and wellbeing. There is a wide range of products for men to choose from to keep them feeling and looking their best.

Where to start?

When searching for the product to aid wellbeing, it’s important to find the one which will be most beneficial. Here are some tips but remember you can always ask our trained healthcare team for advice.

For men who want to focus on their general wellbeing, a daily supplement like Centrum for Men can help. It’s packed full of nutrients that help support muscle function, energy, immunity and metabolism, and have been specifically developed to support men’s health and wellbeing. It has 24 essential nutrients and is improved with higher levels of vitamin D. Just one tablet a day, can make a big difference to overall health.


While multivitamins help fulfil your overall nutritional needs, sometimes the focus is on one particular area, for example hair loss. Incorporating a specific hair growth programme into your lifestyle can help combat and treat this issue. Brands such as Viviscal have a Maximum Strength range that allows men to target hair loss inside and out. Viviscal comes in tablet form and also in a fortifying shampoo, which promotes healthy hair growth. The key active ingredient, Amino Mar C, along with zinc, have been used to improve overall hair health, reduce shedding and increase hair thickness.

Another product which helps to stop and reverse hereditary hair loss is Regaine. It contains Minoxidil, which works by increasing the supply of blood and nutrients to the hair follicles, helping to stimulate growth when used for 2 months or more.

You don’t always need to take a supplement to feel your best. Why not pick up some products from the new Nivea for Men charcoal range? The products contain Active Charcoal that is known for its effective absorption properties. Working as a dirt magnet it cleanses the hair and skin thoroughly, removing all kinds of residues, including excessive oils, grease and styling products, leaving skin feeling rejuvenated. It comes in deodorant, face wash, shower gel and shaving gel.
