Did you know that the prescriptions you take may deplete your nutritional status?
Anti-depressants, cholesterol lowering agents and oral contraceptives deplete Vitamin B12 and Coenzyme Q10. Folic acid is depleted by the use of anti-diabetic drugs, anti-inflammatories, ulcer medications and other prescriptions. Nutrients from vitamin A to zinc are affected by the types of medications you take.
Why is your nutrient status important?
Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the function of the immune system, which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. You may be deficient in some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients and not even know it.
What conditions can be affected by nutrient status?
- Mood Disorders
- Weight Management
- Sports Nutrition
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Women’s Health
- Many other common conditions
There is overwhelming evidence that vitamin deficiencies are associated with the chronic disease process and the overall condition of one’s health.
