Many people today would rather find natural alternatives to drugs for heart disease, digestive problems, insomnia, pain relief, eye disease, diabetes, arthritis, prostate problems, osteoporosis, colds and flu, and much more… Or we don’t get all the nutrition we need for optimal health from the foods we eat, and a multi-vitamin is often not enough to fill the void.
The challenge is almost always - where to start?
With the vast array of vitamins and supplements on the market it can be confusing to know what is right for you. At Azalea Drugs, we are here to help!
While medications are powerful tools to help manage a range of illnesses and diseases, they can also come with a variety of side effects. Many medications used short-term won't lead to nutrient deficiency; however, longer-term use can diminish or deplete some of the body's stores of important vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
Nutrient depletion can occur from many pharmacologic treatments, and patients who take more medications may be more likely to have reduced levels of certain nutrients. While some nutrient depletions may be intentional (i.e. cancer treatments depleting folate), others may result in new comorbidities or unintended consequences. Although these nutrients are present in common foods, they are not present in sufficient levels or are present with bioavailability challenges. Therefore, patients may require supplementation to avoid deficiencies.
At Azalea Drugs, we are here to help you and are here to monitor and manage your treatment when deficiencies are identified. We have a wide range of over-the-counter (OTC) products and can special order any OTC supplementation that is needed.
