One day you’re gonna wake up and realize you haven’t eaten anything green in, like… 4 days (or maybe 4 weeks — no judgment). And that will be the day you decide it’s time to start taking a multivitamin.

Or maybe it’s already happened for you, and you’re here trying to make sense of ALL the different options.

Well, you’re in the right place! Here are our favorite picks for the best multivitamin for men.

It’s a toss-up, TBH.

“Most men can get the vitamins and minerals they need directly from their food If they’re eating a balanced, comprehensive diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, and lean proteins,” explains Dr. Jacob Hascalovici, chief medical officer at Clearing.

Mary Wirtz, registered dietitian at Mom Loves Best, says, “If your diet consistently lacks fruits and vegetables, a multivitamin is not out of the question.”

According to Wirtz and Hascalovici, the following populations may also benefit from popping a multi on the daily:

BUT a multi can’t replace a healthy diet, Wirtz warns. It’s made just to help fill in nutritional gaps.

Here’s how we chose the best multivita-mans for this list.

Third-party creds

Says Wirtz, “The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) seal of approval [and other third-party testing orgs] ensures that the multivitamin has been third-party tested and doesn’t contain contaminants such as heavy metals or pesticides.”

However, not every supplement company pursues third-party testing — so you absolutely should make sure that, at minimum, the manufacturer has a Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) certification. This ensures that they’re meeting FDA guidelines at their production facility.

Reasonable nutrient doses

“For certain nutrients, like iron, vitamin D, and vitamin A,” explains Hascalovici, “it’s possible to ingest too much.”

For this reason, Wirtz recommends looking for a multivitamin that contains roughly the Recommended Dietary Allowance for vitamins and minerals. No need for megadoses — but some of the more specialized multivitamins, like those specifically for energy or fertility, do contain high doses of individual nutrients.

Vetted products only

We put every product we considered through a thorough vetting process that checks for unsupported health and disease claims, shady business practices, FDA/FTC warning letters, and lawsuits involving a company’s products.

We also made sure that the company is transparent about the ingredients it uses, doesn’t use any illegal ingredients, and provides dosage information.

Only products that passed vetting made this list.

  • Type: tablet

Reviewers love the minty-fresh taste, are impressed with the quality, and like that it’s made for men.

Highly rated multivitamin for men

Ritual Essential for Men Multivitamin 18+

  • Price: $$
  • Key nutrients: vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, folate, vitamin B12, magnesium, zinc
  • Type: capsule
  • Dosage: 2 capsules per day
  • Certifications: vegan, third-party tested
  • Other features: boron, omega-3s, vitamin K
  • Pros: time-release capsule, minty flavor, Insta-worthy aesthetic
  • Cons: high dose B12 and vitamin D

These men’s vites from ritual are VIBIN’. And they really cut the nonsense, too, containing just 10 super-targeted ingredients that men may need a little bit more of in their diets, like vitamin D.

This multi has received rave reviews from lots of people (including a Greatist editor’s boo-thang), but the minty-freshness seems to be hit or miss — some love it and some HATE it.

Best multivitamin for men over 50

Ritual Essential for Men Multivitamin 50+

  • Price: $$
  • Key nutrients: vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, folate, vitamin B12, magnesium, zinc
  • Type: capsule
  • Dosage: 2 capsules per day
  • Certifications: vegan, third-party tested
  • Other features: boron, omega-3s, vitamin K
  • Pros: time-release capsule
  • Cons: contains higher than necessary doses of vitamin B12 and vitamin D

This dad-approved (literally — a Greatist editor’s dad is a BIG fan) multi from Ritual has all the same ingredients as the 18+ vite for men we mentioned above, along with some extras that the salt-and-peppers might appreciate — like an extra boost of vitamin D for immune support and folate and B12 for energy.

The delayed-release capsule makes it easy on the stomach, and it’s not pretty just to be pretty — the beadlets in the oil cut down on the number of pills you’d otherwise need to take.

As with the other Ritual vite that made the list, people are pretty torn about the mint flavor — but overall they’re still really satisfied with the vitamin.

Best organic multivitamin for men

Garden of Life mykind Organics Men’s Once Daily

  • Price: $$
  • Key nutrients: vitamin B12, selenium, biotin, vitamin B6
  • Type: tablet
  • Dosage: 1 tablet per day
  • Certifications: organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten free
  • Other features: antioxidants from Organic Food Blend
  • Pros: 1 pill per day, whole-food sources
  • Cons: high dose B6, B12, and biotin

Not only is this mykind Organics vitamin loaded with vitamins from whole-food sources like mushroom, cherry, blueberry, garlic, and parsley (among MANY others), but it’s also gluten-free, vegan, organic, and non-GMO. It’s a great option if you want something made with organic whole-food ingredients.

In addition to the nutrients you’d expect to see in a multivitamin, it’s got some selenium to support prostate health. AND a full daily dose is just 1 tablet — a rarity!

Reviewers love it, too, but some say the glass bottle is surprisingly large and bulky for holding just 30 tablets.

Best multivitamin for men’s energy

GNC Mega Men Energy & Metabolism

  • Price: $
  • Key nutrients: vitamin C, vitamin D, B vitamins
  • Type: caplet
  • Dosage: 2 caplets per day
  • Certifications: third-party tested
  • Other features: caffeine, extra antioxidants
  • Pros: several vitamins and minerals, inexpensive
  • Cons: several high dose vitamins, some reports of nausea

Need a boost? How about a caffeinated multi? Yup, it’s totally a thing.

In addition to caffeine, this vite does have some high doses of B vitamins for energy. For that reason, it may not be a good everyday choice.

Our recommendation for this one? Since it’s caffeinated and loaded with high doses of B vitamins and other nutrients, keep it tucked away for energy emergencies and use it as your daily multi only when you need some extra pep in your step.

The reviews are mostly positive, but some people say it makes them feel nauseated even when taken with food.

Best multivitamin for men’s mental health

Ancient Nutrition Men’s Fermented Multi

  • Price: $$
  • Key nutrients: vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, B vitamins, zinc, selenium, chromium
  • Type: capsule
  • Dosage: 2 capsules per day
  • Certifications: CGMP, vegan
  • Other features: fermented botanicals (fenugreek, ginger, ashwagandha, cordyceps, reishi)
  • Pros: fermented, contains adaptogens
  • Cons: several high dose vitamins

Wait, a fermented vitamin? Yup! Just like fermented foods, fermented nutrients (from whole-food sources) may be easier to digest and absorb. Plus, this one’s got some nootropic (brain-boosting) benefits from organic ashwagandha and cordyceps and reishi mushrooms to help you relax, adapt, and focus.

Reviewers really like this multi and say they can feel the diff when taking it consistently AND that it’s really easy on the stomach.

Best multivitamin for men’s libido

  • Key nutrients: vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, selenium
  • Type: capsule
  • Dosage: 4 capsules (1 pack) per day
  • Certifications: vegan, gluten-free, CGMP
  • Other features: CoQ10, lycopene, DHA
  • Pros: targeted for fertility and sexual health
  • Cons: expensive, 4 pills/day

Libido, fertility, prostate health, sperm quality… if it has anything to do with the unit and the accessories, this multivitamin — developed by a urologist and a male fertility dietitian — was made for it.

It’s suuuuper high in antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, and lycopene) to protect your swimmers, in addition to selenium for prostate health. As a bonus, it may help with ED and give your libido a little boost.

Reviewers love the convenience of the daily packet, and the reviews are full of husbands and male partners who want to be proactive and supportive of a female partner on an IVF journey. 🥺

Best multivitamin for athletes

Athletic Greens AG1

  • Price: $$$
  • Key nutrients: vitamin C, vitamin E, B vitamins, zinc
  • Type: powder
  • Dosage: 1 scoop (in 8 ounces of water) per day
  • Certifications: non-GMO, gluten-free, third-party tested
  • Other features: superfood blend, antioxidants, herbs, mushrooms, digestive enzymes, probiotics
  • Pros: vegan, low carb, no added sugar, designed for athletes
  • Cons: expensive

This greens powder isn’t just for men, but it is made with high performance athletes in mind.

With antioxidants and adaptogens for recovery, B vitamins for energy, probiotics and digestive enzymes for digestion, and beetroot powder for a nitric oxide boost, it’s a complete workout booster. Just don’t forget your pre-workout carbs (for endurance workouts) or post-workout protein (for the sweet gains).

Since it’s on the expensive side, you may want to use it on workout days and take another multi on recovery days.

Most reviewers love the edge it seems to give them, but others say they couldn’t get past the stevia taste or that they didn’t feel much difference when taking it.

Best budget multivitamin for men

NatureMade Multi for Him + Omega-3 Gummies

  • Price: $
  • Key nutrients: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, B vitamins, zinc, chromium, sodium
  • Type: gummy
  • Dosage: 2 gummies per day
  • Certifications: USP, gluten-free
  • Other features: fish oil
  • Pros: chewable gummy form, no extremely high dose vitamins
  • Cons: contains added sugar

NatureMade’s multivitamins for men come personally recommended by Wirtz thanks to their USP verification, affordability, and lack of extremely high, over-the-top doses of any single nutrient.

A bonus is that this gummy form is great for people who don’t like pills. But know that these gummies do contain added sugar for flavor — gotta cover up that fish oil!

Reviewers really like the taste, and for many of them the easy and tasty gummy form is the difference between habitually taking a vitamin daily and not taking one at all.

Best multivitamin for men’s digestion

True Grace One Daily Men’s Multivitamin

  • Price: $$
  • Key nutrients: vitamin D, vitamin E, B vitamins, vitamin C, copper, chromium
  • Type: tablet
  • Dosage: 1 tablet per day
  • Certifications: gluten-free, non-GMO, third-party tested
  • Other features: fermented vitamins, antioxidants, mushrooms, adaptogens, probiotics
  • Pros: easy on digestive system, contains adaptogens, planet-friendly refills
  • Cons: complaints of excessive packaging

Sensitive stomach? You’re not the only one. Nausea or upset stomach is a really common side effect that keeps lots of people from taking their vitamins.

If that’s the case for you, this one from True Grace may be worth a shot. It’s made with fermented, highly absorbable nutrients, along with adaptogens and mushrooms to support overall health. AND it’s loaded with probiotics, so it’s made top-to-bottom to be really easy on your digestive system.

Reviewers are super impressed with the ingredients and report no nausea or tummy troubles.

Keeping in mind that it’s important to look for a multi with proven ingredients, third-party testing, and/or a CGMP certification and without any ultra-high doses, here are some other factors to consider while you shop:

  • Your needs and health goals. Generally, multis aren’t good for super specific goals, but as you can see from our list, some formulations do contain ingredients that could help with energy, focus, and fertility.
  • Vitamin type and dosage. Since you’re gonna be taking it every day (theoretically), buy one you know you can live with. If you hate swallowing pills, don’t get the vitamin pack with 5 pills a day — there are def other options, like gummies, powders, and even liquid vites.
  • Price. Multivitamins can be as cheap or as expensive as you want them to be, really. To a certain degree, you get what you pay for re: ingredient quality, but NatureMade is consistently one of the least expensive brands and their products are USP-verified. So if you’re on a really tight budget, stick with them.
  • Ingredients. Organic? Vegan-friendly? Non-GMO? Make sure your vite is one you can feel good about taking.

What nutrients are important for men’s health?

All of them. No, really. There are no magic men’s nutrients, but it’s really important to get enough of all of them.

Additionally, some antioxidants (like lycopene to support urinary health) and plant-based ingredients (like adaptogenic mushrooms for focus) may be useful for men, but they’re not essentials by any means.

Do men’s vitamins really work?

Yes, they do — if you’re low on one or more nutrients. You’re probably not gonna feel like ~a whole new person~ just from adding a multi to your routine, but you can rest assured that you’re getting what you need, even if your diet isn’t 100 percent on point.

Are multivitamins good for male fertility and sperm count?

If you’re not consistently getting all the nutrients you need, then yes, a multivitamin is definitely worth it and may help optimize your health so you can maximize your fertility and sperm quality. In MMO terms, you can only craft from what’s already in your inventory.

Do I need to take a multivitamin every day?

If you’re gonna take one, then yes, try to be consistent and take it daily to get the most benefit. But it’s no biggie if you miss a day or two or every once in a while, and it’s unlikely that you’ll notice a difference in how you feel after missing a day or so.

When is the best time to take a multivitamin?

Most people say that a multi goes down best with a meal or snack — especially if it contains iron. (Iron on an empty stomach may cause nausea.)

Otherwise, take it whenever is most convenient for you — morning, night, or in between.

Can I get the same nutrients from my diet?

Definitely! But for some people it can be tougher. For instance, if you’re a vegan who hates the taste of nutritional yeast, it may be easier to pop a multi to meet your vitamin B12 needs.

And, as Wirtz reminds us, some people may need a multi to get what they need as a result of bariatric surgery, a malabsorption disorder, or aging.

When in doubt, speak with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian. Most won’t keep you from taking a multi if you really want to, but if you’re on the fence, they can help you decide whether you’ll truly benefit from one.

Men’s multis are made with the unique needs of men in mind, but it’s important to do some research before grabbing one off the shelf or clicking “Add to cart.”

Make sure you look for one that’s made with scientifically proven ingredients in appropriate doses, and that it has been third-party tested or that the manufacturer is CGMP certified. And if you’re on the fence about needing a multi at all, talk with a healthcare pro or a dietitian.
