Often times, the focus on health tends in the media to revolve less around men’s health and more heavily on women’s health – but men’s health matters, too! Often, the more challenging aspects off aging in men tend to be focused on the decline of testosterone levels. Because of this, men believe that supplementing their declining levels of testosterone will bring them back to youthful health.
At Montana Apothecary & Co., we understand that answering the question of why a man’s testosterone levels are declining is actually the most important task at hand, because it’s not just caused by age alone. We also understand and can help our male clients address the challenges caused by more sedentary lifestyles, less healthy diets or an increase in weight gain and the accompanying increased risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and erectile disfunction.
Men's Health Advice
To maintain good health as we age, men are encouraged to practice a healthy diet with smaller portion sizes, less processed food and limited or minimal alcohol consumption. We also encourage the addition of a complete multivitamin – such as Active Life Nutrient Capsules – to help provide nutrients that are essential for male health, but may not be present in one’s diet.

Any detox should be followed with Liposomal Glutathione to help the body rebuild its natural internal detoxification processes.
The liver is vital in removing toxic alcohol metabolites from the body, and its primary job is to filter the blood coming from the gastrointestinal tract before passing the blood to the rest of the body. The liver doesn’t just remove ingested toxins but extracts residues and metabolic waste material from our blood so these toxins can then be excreted. Excessive alcohol in the body can increase stress and impair your immunity. To combat this, micronutrients and metabolic cofactors found in Alcohol Detox can support healthy liver function and metabolism of alcohol.
Saw Palmetto is another great option for men to consider, because it supports prostate health and urinary function, with is vital for men’s health overall. Erectile dysfunction also tends to appear because of circulation issues – not just testosterone decline! Because the primary system in the body that regulates blood flow is fueled by the amino acid L-arginine and a resulting increase in nitric oxide, supplementing with Nitric Oxide Formula and Pycnogenol daily will improve blood flow issues we see in ED, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more.
