Centrum Silver Men
Centrum Silver Men is a vitamin supplement for daily use and overall health. It’s offered by Pfizer, a massive pharmaceutical company founded over 150 years ago. Their original headquarters was in New York City, and they continue to be headquartered there today. They’re known for products such as Lipitor, Zoloft, and Xanax. The company has more or less been around forever and they’ve built a large following along with a diverse line of products. They tend to sell medicines rather than supplements, though.
Centrum Silver Men contains the following ingredients: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Chloride, Potassium, Nickel, Silicon, Vanadium, Lutein, Lycopene
Each bottle is full of vitamins and minerals, over two dozen of them. This should be everything you need in a convenient one-a-day form if you’re a male age 50 or older. Centrum Silver contains the full eight B vitamins, which is a definite plus. Some B complex supplements are much more expensive and contain fewer ingredients. They’re popular, too, because B vitamins are essential for good health. They impact various portions of your body and you need all of them to stay healthy.
Pfizer lists 30 mcg Biotin as 10 percent of your daily value. Most adults need 30 to 100 mcg a day, although a publication from 2013 says 300 mcg can be good. Note that your needs may differ from the daily values listed on each Centrum bottle. Consult your doctor to see what’s best for you. Pfizer uses daily values based on research from different years, and these numbers tend to change every couple of years. For example, the National Institutes of Health said in 2011 that male adults need about 2.4 mcg of vitamin B12 a day. In 2013 there was a recommendation of 6 mcg for adults. In any case, in this supplement, there’s 100 mcg of B12, far more than the minimum you need.

- Good variety of vitamins and minerals which people need for optimal health. Has high amounts of ingredients like vitamins D and B12.
- Available almost everywhere, because of the company’s large distribution network, and is remarkably affordable. It’s also easy to take, because it’s just one chewable tablet a day.
- Contains inactive ingredients many people don’t like, such as hydrogenated palm oil and artificial coloring.
- The formula is good but slightly suboptimal. Some amounts could be changed, and other ingredients could be added, to increase quality. Still, it’s a good buy for the price.
This isn’t meant for everyone, but men over 50 should enjoy this product. It seems to have high quality for a low price. There are some negative reviews online, but they tend to be old reviews talking about shipping problems. Some people received bottles which were near (or past) the expiration date. Check your bottles before you open them, to ensure you can finish the bottle before it expires. You can exchange or return bottles if they’re unopened. As long as you’re vigilant, you should have no problems. Many people who take Centrum Silver report healthier and happier times.
