Sometimes, a prescribed medication depletes a vitamin or nutrient. In this case, we assist patients with supplements.
We utilize medication therapy management to counter depletion. 70% of Americans take one or more prescription medications. Every medication slowly depletes essential vitamins and minerals from your body. This can be a cause of great concern seeing as how many Americans suffer from low levels of vitamins and minerals from a poor diet or inherent family history.
This side-effect is overlooked a lot and is also the cause of increased doctor visits and the development of underlying ailments. The longer a medication is on the market, the more research is done on the long-term effects it has, including the depletions it causes.
By speaking to one of our staff pharmacists, you can avoid the side effects of depletion. Our pharmacists will help you replenish nutrient depletion medication with natural supplements.
Research has proven that you can control chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and osteoporosis by taking the natural supplements that your body is low in.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call and speak to one of our pharmacists or your primary care physician.
