Correct the Deficiency and Improve Your Life!

Common prescription and over-the-counter medications can deplete your body of vital nutrients which are essential to your health, and this drug-induced nutrient depletion (DIND) can be life-threatening. Nutrient depletion can lead to fatigue, anxiety, depression and insomnia. And even worse – widely-prescribed statins, which are used to reduce cholesterol, deplete coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Lack of CoQ10 can weaken the heart and result in left ventricular failure. To treat this problem, drugs known as beta-blockers are prescribed, which can cause more adverse effects. This is an example of how DIND is often not considered as a cause of a symptom or side effect, and therefore instead of treating the nutrient deficiency, more drugs are prescribed. The good news is that with accurate information (which may require laboratory testing for certain minerals) and quality supplements, you can avoid nutrient depletion and you may be able to control or prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. Don’t randomly start taking supplements – seek professional advice from our knowledgeable pharmacist.
