Depletion

Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion

Compensate Nutrient Depletion

Most of us take some form of OTC (over the counter) drug/pharmaceutical like Tylenol, Advil,  an antibiotic  or other chemical designed drug.  The short term in many cases and surely in the  long term/ daily use of pharmaceuticals such as a cholesterol health lowering statin, cox2 inhibitors, anti-inflammatories will create a need for specific nutrients increases and in many cases might stave off/protect other organ, nerve, cardiovascular  or other tissue damage.

You need to be aware that most if not all of the prescriptions and commonly used over-the-counter drugs, cause potentially serious nutrient depletions.  For your information and review we are sharing with you a detailed, however not complete list of every medication with a list of drugs and non-prescription medications and the nutrients they deplete.  We hope this better helps you make better Health decisions as our health is in in our own hands and the Poly-MVA Family is here to help in Leading the Way To Optimum Health.
