I’m on Prednisone: Can I Take Vitamins?

You might be asking, is it okay to take vitamins with prednisone? Maybe you’re afraid that you’re taking prednisone and it is such a toxic drug that you don’t want to do anything to mess with how it’s working?

Watch now!

Is it okay to take vitamins with prednisone?

The answer is “YES.” In fact, the doctors say you should be taking vitamins with prednisone. And the reason for that is because this medicine is stealing 9+ nutrients in our body.

And when that nutrient depletion happens, this triggers to weaken our system which means we are vulnerable to getting infections and may experience horrible side effects.

Prednisone Nutrient Defeciency

In fact, the doctors who prescribed prednisone the most, the rheumatologists made a guideline that says:

“…everyone on prednisone for three months or more on a dose of seven and a half milligrams or greater should take calcium and vitamin D.”

Vitamin D for Osteoporosis-prednisone

Risks of Prednisone doses over 7.5 mg daily:

Lack of calcium will lead to osteoporosis and you don’t want that right?

Osteoporosis is one of the side effects of prednisone that is irreversible.

So at the very least, everyone should be taking calcium along with vitamin D. But what most people don’t know is that there are actually 10 nutrients that prednisone steals, not just those two. I have a cheat sheet for you that has all 10 nutrients. You need. Plus ways you can eat those nutrients like vitamins and minerals in your diet, click below.

I discovered those nutrients we need and went a step further… because I was taking prednisone and I wanted to make sure that I was fighting back in the ways it was making me feel terrible. I actually went out and made a supplement designed specifically for people on prednisone.

Introducing Nutranize Zone

It’s called Nutranize Zone and it contains all those 10 nutrients you need. It has all the vitamins that prednisone depletes. It’s the first and only supplement for people on prednisone. I designed it to increase the benefits to risk ratio.

This helps decrease those risks to put the favor in the balance of the Benefits side because this contains the 10 nutrients that prednisone depletes:

  • calcium and vitamin D (which help you to maintain strong bones)
  • melatonin (which helps you get restful sleep)
  • chromium picolinate, (which helps you to have balanced sugars)
  • …and a lot more.

And guess what? I just created an even better version of Nutranize Zone!
