Most Pain Killers Deplete The Body Of The B Vitamin Folic Acid
With all negative news concerning Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID's) and the Cox 2 inhibitors Vioxx, Celebrex and Naproxin, it is notable that all the experts - doctors and pharmacists - have failed to mention one salient fact. All of these drugs, including the oldest pain killer Asprin, deplete the body of the B vitamin Folic acid.
Folic acid is one of the most common vitamin deficiencies and it is vital in metabolizing homocysteine, a toxic amino acid that is recognized as one of the most critical independent risk factors to cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine, directly damages the vascular system thereby starting a disease process that leads to atherosclerosis and increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Why doctors and pharmacists don't know this or, if they do know it, fail to mention this fact to patients is a sad commentary on the state of nutritional education in the medical and pharmacy faculties of our universities and negligent failure on the part of regulatory authorities who approved the pain killers in the first place.
