DRUGS THAT CAN DEPLETE NUTRIENTS

Drugs can lead to decreased absorption, displacement, or increased excretion of numerous nutrients. The effects of various drugs on nutrients have been only moderately studied. Yet what is already known is startling….

Drug/Nutrient Depletion List

Drugs stimulate or suppress—force your body to do either more or less of something. No one knows all of their side effects. One reason is that adverse effects vary from individual to individual depending on age, degree of sensitivity, health status, nutritional needs, presence of other drugs, time of day, and more. Exposure to hormone disruptors, plasticisers, pesticides, toxic chemicals in food, water, air—any and all can disrupt natural balancing mechanisms in our bodies and affect reactions to drugs.

**This is not intended as medical advice, and certain medications absolutely should not be discontinued without medical supervision. Certain supplements may also adversely interact with some medications. However, it should be considered that some of the “side effects” of many medications may be due to the factors mentioned above and should be brought to your doctor’s attention if you have any concerns.
