June Men's Health MonthSince 1994, June Men’s Health Month has strived to grow awareness for early detection and prevention for health issues facing men and boys. The Men’s Health Network says that U.S. males live sicker and die younger than U.S. women.

Super 1 Foods encourages men to get and stay healthy. All Super 1 Foods stores feature the NuVal® Nutritional Scoring System to help shoppers build a better-for-you bag of groceries. NuVal scores, found near the price tag, follow USDA’s MyPlate guidelines, ranking food from 1 to 100 — the higher the score, the better the nutrition. Top-scoring foods that boost male health have muscle-building, and prostate- and heart-healthy properties:

  • Protein: Lean cuts of beef (NuVal 46 to 57) and pork (NuVal 44 to 49)
  • Zinc: Shellfish and seafood are key to heart and muscle health (NuVal 62 to 82).
  • Good fats: Avocado is rich in mono fats which fight cholesterol (NuVal 88).

Finally, compare in-store. Let NuVal Scores and product labels guide you to “Better You” varieties.
