For around $30, you can get GNC Preventive Nutrition® CoQ-10 100mg.

For men who want to boost their muscle and memory, creatine supplements help. Puritan's Pride offers a powder or caps, in the $20 range.

Other vitamins that men can benefit from include:

  • Folic Acid (prevents clogged arteries, improves brain's blood flow and can decrease risk of developing Alzheimer's disease)
  • Glucosamine (reverses and rebuilds damaged cartilage)
  • Omega-3S (protects the heart)
  • Selenium (fights cancer)
  • Vitamin E (slows aging effects)

All men should take a good multivitamin, which can reduce a number of health problems. Centrum Silver, which can range anywhere from $20 to $35 and One A Day Men's Health Formula for around $28 are some of the more popular brands used.

Vitamins for Women

Women face unique challenges with their health as their bodies go through many changes. Menopause is one such challenge. Black Cohosh may help control the hot flashes that go along with menopause. Nature's Way has Black Cohosh available for around $10.

Pregnancy is another challenge for women. Those who suffer from morning sickness can benefit from Ginger. Ginger in general helps lessen the severity of nausea and vomiting.

Gingko Biloba may help boost memory and concentration, something that many women complain about as they get older. GNC offers this supplement ranging in price from $12 to $22. (Consult your physician before starting a ginkgo regime.)
