Prescription Drugs that Gobble Vitamins

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:

Many people today take prescription drugs to regulate a variety of chronic health conditions. But did you know that studies have shown that most of these medications deplete your body of essential vitamins and minerals?

Common blood pressure lowering drugs Lasix, Edecrin and Bumex deplete the body of vitamin B1, vitamin B 6, vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, potassium and zinc.

Hydrocortisone, Cortisone and Prednisone are major offenders. They all deplete the system of vitamin C, vitamin D, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium and zinc.

Lowering your cholesterol with medication? Colestid and Questran pack quite a depleting punch, eliminating vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B 12, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, folic acid and iron.

Hormone replacement therapy such as Evista, Premarin, Prempro and Estratab deplete vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B 12, folic acid, vitamin C, magnesium and zinc as do oral contraceptives Estrastep, Norinyl, Ortho Novem and Triphasil.

And what about simple Aspirin? Take it regularly and you will deplete vitamin C, folic acid, iron and potassium. Do you take Advil or Aleve? They both deplete folic acid.

Sound daunting? What can you do?

The best way to assure your continued good health is by quality supplementation. Ask us about our high quality food-based nutritional supplements during your next visit.

And a reminder…

We will be closed on Memorial Day – Monday, May 25 — so that our staff can celebrate the holiday with their friends and family. So make sure to book your pre-holiday appointments in advance! We are open regular hours for the rest of this week – Wednesday, May 20 and Friday May 22 from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. (closed for lunch 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.) and Saturday, May 23, 9:00 a.m. – 12 noon.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Get Your B’s for Healthy Eyes

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. T:

A study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston reports that ingesting a mixture of B vitamins reduced by one-third the chance of middle-aged women developing macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is a breakdown of the macular, the back wall of the eye, which causes a gradual loss of vision due to deterioration of nerve tissue.

The study involved more than 5,000 women aged 40 and older. Smoking depletes B vitamins as does stress.

Foods naturally high in the B’s include dark green leafy vegetables, other fresh fruits and vegetables, most nuts, whole grains, fish, turkey and other proteins. The research suggests that the use of B vitamins is a way to prevent deficiencies.

To be sure that you are getting enough B’s, my personal recommendation is our Cataplex B and Cataplex G because our vitamins come from food rather than the synthetic vitamins usually sold in stores. Toxicity from synthetic B vitamins can include nerve damage, headaches and fatigue.

Ask us about our food-based supplements during your next visit.

And a reminder…

Memorial Day – Monday, May 25 – is just around the corner. We will be closed on Memorial Day so that our staff can celebrate the holiday with their friends and family. So make sure to book your pre-holiday appointments in advance! Next week we are open regular hours – Monday, May 18, Wednesday, May 20 and Friday May 22 from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. (closed for lunch 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.) and Saturday, May 23, 9:00 a.m. – 12 noon.

Until next time…
