Currently it’s estimated that over 12 million women aged 15-45 in the United States take or have taken some form of birth control pill. These contraceptives change hormone structures in women to prevent fertility. There are quite a number of different prescription pills on the market, and, while the FDA has approved oral contraceptives as being safe, there are some things you should know about these prescription drugs.
Specifically, from a nutritional standpoint, oral contraceptives rob the body of some important vitamins and trace minerals. Among these are several types of B vitamins and magnesium–vital nutrients to your body’s metabolism and other functions. Magnesium, for instance, is critical to proper formation and maintenance of bone, muscle, and nervous system health. B Vitamins provide a wide variety of benefits, among them are helping your body maintain concentration, a good mood, and energy.
Many people believe that folic acid is reserved only for those women who are pregnant. However, taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily while on “the pill” can help women continue to feel vibrant. Moreover, taking 10 to 25 mg of vitamin B6 can help support everyday energy. Furthermore, 250 mg of magnesium daily is highly recommended for optimum health and wellness.
