The Wellman® 50+ formulation provides an ideal, balanced palette of micronutrients for the 50 plus age group.
The tablets are ideal for those with an active lifestyle and unlike a general multivitamin, they contain specialist bio-active nutrients to help maintain health & vitality with specific support for male health, including zinc, which contributes to normal reproductive health.
Support an Active Lifestyle:
Getting older shouldn't mean you should have to change your lifestyle and the activities you have always enjoyed. Wellman® 50+ contains vitamins B6 and B12, copper and iron which contribute to normal energy release. Zinc, selenium and vitamins A, B6, B12, C and D have also been included in the formula as they contribute to the normal function of the immune system which is very important as you age. Exercise is also important to continue as you age, studies have shown that exercise provides many health benefits and that older adults can gain a lot by staying physically active.
Your eyes are one of the most complex organs and as you begin to age it's even more important than ever to look after them. The retina and the lens can be damaged over the years by exposure to sunlight, smoke and pollution. Wellman® 50+ provides antioxidants vitamin C and E which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress with mineral zinc, which contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
Heart and Circulation
Wellman® 50+ contains vitamin B1 which contributes to the normal function of the heart as well as a combination of folate and vitamins B6 and B12 which contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism, and normal red blood cell formation. The formula also includes vitamin C which increases non-haem iron absorption, which is important especially with vegetarian diets as iron contributes to the normal formation of haemoglobin and normal oxygen transport in the body to all the major organs.
Male health is important at any age but concerns can increase as men age. Wellman® 50+ contains vitamin B6 which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. The comprehensive formula also includes zinc which contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood and normal metabolism of fatty acids.

One tablet per day is recommended, with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking the tablet with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients, and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Wellman 50+ should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Wellman® 50+ is taken with plenty of liquid to wash the tablet down, and not tea or coffee as this may cause the tablet to disintegrate too early.
