Drugs containing acetaminophen are used for fever reduction and pain relief and are available both over the counter (Tylenol) and in prescription medications like Vicodin and Percocet. Acetaminophen depletes nutrients including glutathione and cysteine as well as the enzyme catalase. ****Depletion of these compounds, says Pelton, dramatically weakens the immune system and accelerates tissue damage in important organs such as the liver and lungs.*****Some of the more common anti-inflammatory medications include Motrin and Advil (ibuprofen), Aleve (naproxen sodium) and Mobic (meloxicam). These NSAIDS, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, have been shown to deplete folic acid. Corticosteroids are another class of anti-inflammatory drugs, with prednisone being the most commonly prescribed. When taken over a period of time, corticosteroids deplete vitamins A, C, D, B-6, B-12, folic acid, and the minerals calcium, chromium, magnesium, potassium, selenium and zinc. Taking oral contraceptives, especially over a series of years, can have a significant effect on a woman's ability to absorb and store nutrients. "There's an extensive list of nutrients depleted by oral contraceptives," says Pelton. Studies document that birth control pills deplete vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3, B-6, B-12, folic acid, vitamin C, magnesium, selenium, zinc, tyrosine and CoQ10.
