Combat Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion


Today, more than ever, consumers over the age of 50 are on some type of Pharmaceutical drug regimen, many of which promote healthier, longer lives. Unfortunately, many of these drugs also deplete vital nutrients from the body which may cause a new round of medical complications.

Women are a group of drug consumers who should be especially concerned with Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion. Few women know that oral contraceptives lower the levels of vital nutrients such as Vitamin B2, B6 and B12, Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Magnesium and Zinc.

To put the importance of vitamins and minerals in perspective, think about the construction of a new building. Carbohydrate, Protein, Fat and Water are comparable to the building materials. Vitamins and minerals are comparable to the architect, contractors and construction workers. Without the architect, contractor and construction workers, it does not matter how many building materials you have, it will never be built. At the same token, without vitamins and minerals, our bodies cannot synthesize new cells, build new tissues and produce the energy we need regardless of how much carbohydrate, protein, fat and water we ingest every day.

Drugs can alter the ability of the body to digest, absorb, synthesize, transport, store, metabolize or eliminate nutrients. This situation potentially can cause Nutrient Depletion. Quite often, a patient is then placed on additional medication to combat a new set of symptoms. The cascading effect of such an approach to disease management often leads to a reduction in the patient's quality of life.

Folic Acid is a nutrient that is often depleted by drugs. Ross Pelton and James B LaValle claim that it can be depleted by some 30 different types of drugs, from Aspirin and magnesium containing antacids to stronger medications such as anticonvulsants,cardiovascular drugs and oral contraceptives. Some of the possible effects of Folic Acid deficiency can include Megaloblastic anemia, birth defects, elevated homocysteine levels, fatigue and even increased rates of colon and colorectal cancer.
