How We Deplete Our Nutrients

Below is a list of various nutrients and the corresponding substance(s) that deplete the specific nutrient from your body. The list doesn't mention that many of these nutrients are for the most part water-soluble meaning that every day they need to be replaced to keep a sufficient amount of nutrients for us to survive.

Is it any wonder that after we indulge in certain foods, drinks, and drugs, that needed nutrients are depleted to such a sufficient amount that our body systems become compromised. All the more reason to have a well-balanced supplement program.
