Drug-Induced Nutrition Depletion

Drug-Induced Nutrition Depletion
According to researchers at the Mayo Clinic, it was discovered that 7 out of 10 Americans are taking at least one prescription medication. Many prescribed medicine as well as over-the-counter drugs can be the primary treatment for curing or preventing various conditions, and most people do understand possible side effects that comes with them. However, many patients are not aware of something called “Drug Induced Nutrient Depletion”. Depletions occur when medications that we are taking interferes with the body’s ability to metabolize or synthesize essential nutrients in our bodies.

When your body is robbed of its essential nutrients, this may cause further problems down the road. Depletion of certain vitamins and minerals can lead to fatigue, cramps, muscle aches, dry skin and depression.
