It’s just a mineral supplement containing iron. Men should not take iron supplements unless prescribed and monitored with lab tests. Too much iron is far worse than not enough. So just eat a steak with a baby spinach salad.

Honestly, it looks like a multi-vitamin with extra iron. Nothing bad per se, but I'm thinking that the "30% increase" might be a bit generous. Unless the study group was patients with iron-deficiency anemia. It takes a lot of iron to cause toxicity, but as long as you're eating a good diet you're probably getting enough.
