GNC $100 Gift Card Giveaway for Men's Health Month

Did you know that June is Men's Health Month? Most of us are malnourished and do not get the amount of vitamins and supplements our bodies need to function. I was just reading an article in the New York Times that Men are now getting osteoporosis too (it was previously believed that the disease only manifested in females). According to the article, "Two million men in the United States have the disease, and one in four will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in his lifetime." This article is 6 years old, so I am sure the numbers have increased. Did you know that exercise, Vitamin D, and Calcium can help prevent osteoporosis? GNC can help supply you prevent Osteoporosis and any other diseases or problems you may have.

It is hard to believe that this bottle can save you from a painful broken bone in the future! At only $6.99 a bottle (90 caplets) it doesn't seem worth the risk. This is GNC's Calcium Plus 1000. It contains 800IU Vitamin D, 1000mg Calcium and 500mg Magnesium and it is now officially on my GNC shopping list. : ) 

GNC also has specialized multivitamins made for Men and Women. For Men they have prostate health vitamins, sexual health vitamins, hardcore sports supplements and more. I do have to admit that it can be very hard to get most Men to take supplements. My Husband fights me anytime he has to take a supplement regardless of how sick he is. For some reason though, he is willing to take energy tablets without fusing. I found an amazing energy/ multivitamin combo that GNC has:

Mega Men Energy & Metabolism has Caffeine and Green Tea Extract along with other energy blends and a LOT of vitamins (including 1600IU of Vitamin D). With most males, the less capsules/ tablets the better. If a vitamin makes the Hubby feel good and energized, he is much more likely to take it.

Speaking of energy, GNC also carries my own personal little addiction:

I absolutely love VPX Redline Princess in Exotic Fruit. It is the only energy drink that I actually like the taste of. It has helped me to have the energy to get through many bad late nights at my overnight job. I also love that it does not have any carbs or sugar (even though it tastes super sweet). I am actually allowed to drink this on my diet!
