Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion Handbook Paperback – March, 2001
Top Customer Reviews
Written by a team of pharmacists, it is very even handed and lists the negative literature as well as the positive. Thus one can ascertain which nutrients are affected by which drugs, and vice versa and quickly review some of the medical literature to make up one's own mind. I've found it helpful.
Some good examples are that omeprazole reduces B12 absorption around 70%, that simvastatin reduces Q10 production significantly, HRT reduces B vitamins, anticonvulsants reduce vit D folate and calcium.
Unfortunately it doesn't deal with anesthetic gases- N2O depletes B12 and halothane causes oxidative stress on the liver.
I still have more to learn about this book, but it is one of my best purchases.
This is an integral part of my practice and I wish I had this years ago.
This allows me to make more informed recommendations for glyconutrients, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, etc.
