Many of the most often prescribed medications impact nutrient absorption, distribution and metabolism.

It’s not the medication, it’s the nutrient depletions.
Nutrient Repletion + Balanced Biochemistry
Medications can impact nutrient digestion, absorption, distribution, metabolism to active forms, function, catabolism and excretion (Source: NCBI). We use the precise doses, forms and enhancers to replete nutrient levels.
Medications can lead to other biochemical changes that we correct with our patented formulations.
SSRIs and SNRIs have been shown to decrease REM sleep, increase REM latency and decrease sleep continuity. This is reported in a percentage of patients with treatment emergent insomnia.

Even for Antidepressants contains nutrients to assist with proper sleep balance that is important for overall brain and mental health.
In a randomized controlled trial the use of thiamine in addition to SSRI alleviated symptoms of depression faster than antidepressant therapy alone.
"Adjuvant thiamine improved standard treatment in patients with major depressive disorder: results from a randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled clinical trial."

Even for Antidepressants contains thiamine. Thiamine is an essential nutrient, while thiamine deficiency leads to a broad variety of disorders including irritability and symptoms of depression.
