Nature Made now has a supplement on the market that promises to meet the nutritional needs of those taking common prescription medications; it is true, taking medications can lower your blood levels of some nutrients. Rx Essentials does contain some of the nutrients lost when you are taking a prescrition medication so in theory it appears to be a great product; but is it?
Quote from Enviromental Nutrtion:
“In theory, Rx Essentials seem like a good idea, but there doesn’t appear to be solid rationale for nutrient levels. Some (vitamin B12) are exceptionally high while others (calcium) are exceptionally low. Moreover the product hasn’t been adequately tested for efficacy.”
- It is wise to first check with your physician before combining any over-the-counter product and prescription.
- Take stock of any supplement you may already be taking; it is easy to overdose even with supplements.
