Vitamin Depletion

Did you know the prescription drug you are taking may be depleting your body of vital nutrients?

Depletion happens when a medication causes the body to lose a nutrient. The drug might also interfere with the nutrient’s absorption.

Certain medications may have an adverse effect upon your body’s ability to absorb and maintain the nutrients you need for good health.

Depletion or interference: The mediation may deplete or interfere with the absorption or function of the nutrient. Taking these supplements may help replenish them.

Side effect reduction/prevention: Taking these supplements may help reduce the likelihood and/or severity of a potential side effect caused by the medication.

Supportive interaction: Taking these supplements may support or otherwise help your medication work better.

If you are taking any medication, may be depleting your body of vitamins and minerals.
