Drug Nutrient Depletion Overview
Many of us are using prescription medications as part of our health care plan. What does not typically discussed is how the medications can interact with our metabolic pathways, and cause the depletion of key nutrients in our bodies. In this presentation we define drug nutrient depletion, and discuss some of the most common culprits: statins, proton pump inhibitors, and diuretics. Protecting your body from nutrient loss while taking prescription medications is usually as simple as eating a more robust nutrient dense diet.
